The hustle-bustle of Queensborough

A relaxing evening for Raymond with his newspaper, his books and (in his lap) Sieste the cat. Can you guess which house – Queensborough or Montreal – this photo was taken in?

Raymond and I spent last weekend here in Montreal, and what a contrast it was to our recent visits to Queensborough! Whereas in one place we have many errands to run, people to see, chores to do and appointments to keep, in the other we can just quietly relax in our house, enjoy the blessed peace and quiet, and get rested up for the work week ahead.

What’s that? What do you mean, “Too bad you didn’t get away to the relaxing place last weekend?” We were in the relaxing place!

In Montreal we emerged from home for a quick grocery shop on Saturday and church on Sunday. The rest of the weekend we chilled with our cats, reading books and newspapers, making and enjoying nice meals, having lovely long naps, and watching a ball game or two and a movie or two. What could be more relaxing?

In Queensborough, well – it’s just go go go all the time! Why, the last weekend we were there we were so busy that we didn’t even get time to make a dump run!

Here’s what I have to say: it’s a good thing we have a house in the great big city of Montreal. Because we need a place to escape the non-stop hustle-bustle of Queensborough.

  1. I think your getting the idea.. Coming to Queensborough besides getting all your chores done you just might get hit up to volunteer on the fast pace of the area! 😉 lol

  2. Bonus points for being the first person ever to use “non-stop hustle-bustle” and “Queensborough” in the same sentence!
