Some days I look at Steve and say that I wished we lived in one of those Hallmark movies, or even in the town of *Middleton where Cassie The Good Witch lives. I guess I didn’t realize it until Saturday that I really do live in the midst of Hallmark emotions and sights. If the Hallmark channel folks had come here Saturday, we could have created a whole movie for them. There would be no script needed trust me.
*Wendy Kennedy Middleville was originally named Middleton. Look no further! 😉
Carleton Place had their Pumpkinfest— To be honest, I have a hard time walking on uneven ground now since my fall so I sent Steve to investigate, and I did see it up closeup and was so happy. Kate Murray, Jessica Hansen & Amanda Blakeley Charania! So well done.. so well done.
Off to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum for their Vintage Sale today and picked up an old Captain Kangaroo and some other great things. Stay tuned– something coming up on October 27th that you should be aware of. And I got to see their Chamber of Commerce nomination sign today too. Congratulations!!
We were on our way to Clayton so we stopped for lunch at the North Market Cafe on Mill Street in Almonte. One amazing place and we had the fried green tomatoes and the pekoras and of course their Nanaimo bars, which the flavour of the week was Pink Peppercorn.
Fried Green Tomatoes with corn relish and spicy crema
Look at the people we met there. People that do good for our community. Can you name them?
Then another smile came…
Then it was off to Rose Mary Sarsfield’s book event today. Rose Mary who also does the Clayton History Page has been working a long time on this history book and this book can be bought now at the Clayton General Store or email Rose Mary at email@example.com or call 613-621-9300
Then we had to say adieu to the sunshine, the fall colours and the wonderful people.
I said to Steve on the way home:
” You know I miss Berkeley a lot, but today I realized this is where I belong”.
As Faith Hill once said: “I don’t want to sound like a Hallmark card, but to be able to wake up each day with food and shelter, that alone is good. Forget aging and the fact that my butt is becoming a little more familiar with my knees than my tailbone. If you are six feet above ground it’s a good day. So, give me more!”
