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?
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.
