Glorious day! Nothing better than sitting under the trees, nice comfortable breeze, blue sky, watching the puffy clouds drift by. Drinking iced tea and basking in the sunshine. We’ve been kinda laid back the past few days. Except for an occasional shower the rains have departed for awhile.
Not much going on. Oil change for the Terrain the other day. Have to keep our ride running tip top. Grocery shopping the other morning. It’s funny, had a trip down memory lane at the store here in Buchanan. This is a very small country town. No mega stores here, including WalMart. Walking in to that grocery store took me back 50 years, like I was walking in to the old A & P. Ah nostalgia. They even had the same pasta Mom used to buy. Can’t remember the last time I saw that.
This is definitely small town U.S.A. It does have a lot of appeal, living in a town like this. Slower pace. Mom and pop shops, few chain stores. Though there’s the usual McDonald’s & Subway. Didn’t see a Starbucks. Homes built early 1900’s and earlier. No cookie cutter homes here. Big yards, few fences. And traffic…….there’s so little of it. I could get used to that. But everything is a good distance away so I’d probably shop online a lot more than I do now. Hmmmm…..that could prove to be really expensive 😐
One big negative for us…..winter!
It’s been an enjoyable stay. We’ll be leaving this region in a few days and on to new adventures!
