5 Oct

After what seemed like an eternity (four whole days with no internet, phone, or television – GASP!), we were reconnected with the broader world.

It’s not like we didn’t have plenty of stuff to keep us busy. And we do have cell phones, which we could use to call people. It was just sort of a pain. The biggest inconvenience was not being able to work from home. I had planned to just work from the town library. Until I found out they don’t open until 10:00 AM. Thank goodness there’s a Panera nearby.

Fauquier County Public Library in Warrenton

That, too, wasn’t horrible. Especially since this is the month of the Pink Ribbon Bagel. You do know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, right?

One can only sit at Panera for so long, though. I moved to the library around noon on Monday. Yesterday, given that I forgot my cell phone, I came back to the house around 9, let the dogs out, grabbed my phone, let the dogs back in, and headed to the library. Since this is such a small town, after all that, it was still only about 9:35 when I got to the library. Which was still closed. Sigh…

To kill time, I walked around a bit. Lucky for me, I had my camera in my purse.

Warrenton really is a cute little town. Once we get more stuff unpacked and I have more time, I hope to get some more (better) images to share. For now, these few will have to do.

There’s so much to see and do here. And there are little surprises seemingly around every corner. Like this beautiful little garden in front of the library.

Then there’s the Old Warren Green Hotel, currently known as the Warren Green Building, which now serves as office space for Fauquier County.

The image shown below is one that always makes me smile. It’s just cool to me (and to Hubby) to be able to see the mountains from Main Street.

In case you’re wondering how to pronounce Fauquier… it’s FAW-KEER.

I hope you enjoyed that little peek. More will come one day…

  1. Your new town looks gorgeous – I love that Warren Green Building! The mountain view is very cool. No idea what a Panera is, will have to look that up to further expand my knowledge about everything US. 🙂 Have you tried the Irish pub yet? 😉 I look forward to many more pictures!!

  2. Thanks, Jess. It is quite cozy.

    Annelies, the food at the pub we can walk to was “eh!” Not impressed at all. But the beer is probably cold.

    Shan, I had no idea how to say it, but guessed correctly. 🙂

  3. Thanks, Ralph. Trust me, I’m anxious to get out there and shoot pics to share. We’ve been working our way through the house cleaning, unpacking, etc. It’s quite time-consuming. The previous owners were not exactly clean people. 🙁
