Hospitality at the Blaine Library



On Saturday morning...
Kathy and Judy met at my house and we piled into my car...
and drove across the border to Washington State.
Ellen...
drove from her hometown in Washington State and met us at the Blaine Library.




This invitation to come to a library was new to us.
We as authors were invited to share our story and ....
well..
we were not sure.


It turned out...
we were in for a royal treat.
They baked and set the table and the room for a morning which felt like a celebration.


I yakked up a storm.



In true librarian style...
they invited class participation.


I peeked into the children's library.


At noon..
we walked across the street to the Blackberry Cafe.


Debbie and Cindy from the Blaine Library took us out for lunch.


It is nearly impossible not to take photos of beautifully coloured food.
It was ...
delicious.



And that...
was our morning at the Blaine Library.

Cindy and Debbie were so kind and welcoming and by the time lunch was over...
I knew I had made two new friends.

Last night as I was writing this post....
my beloved commented...

"you sure have met nice people because of blogging".

Yes....I surely have.

all for now..

  6. Lovely library and so nice that the librarians thought of asking you to come speak...and showed up for work on a Saturday too! Terry was right...you have met lots of great people all over North America and I would dare to say...probably all over the world!

    (Eagerly awaiting the day you blog from the Ukranian orphanage!)

  10. Thanks for giving me a shortened version of your trip to Blaine Library. As you know I was torn for obvious reasons. I always enjoy the trips together for the same reason that blogging friends have things in common.
    I'm happy that you introduced us to this new concept.
