After our Canada AM segment Paola our most efficient representative from Graf-Martin drove us to Waterloo where we were to have lunch with Ellen Graf-Martin.
Can you believe I took a photo of her office...and not her?
We had the most wonderful lunch with her and before we knew it we were rushed off to the Kitchener Ten Thousand Villages Book signing.
They had done such a beautiful job of making demo's for the guests.
Look at these?
Love how they displayed them.
We found waiting for us our friend Kathy who is looking very much forward to her new life of traveling.
We also were so delighted to meet Jerilyn of MennoMedia who we met back in Harrisonburg with our last book tour!
She is most efficient as administrative assistant and her warmth was evident and we chatted quickly so she could get back to the office.
our dear Rosella who you all know from her blog...and her support in commenting on all our blogs arrived with smiles and we all teared up.
She came with sweet gifts for us.
We knew she'd come...
so from all of us mennonite girls...
we had a bouquet for her.
We had a wonderful time at their store and then headed on to Niagara on the Lake.
The drive was so beautiful with the sun shining.
I felt myself nodding off for a wee rest before our next destination.
Niagara on the Lake is the most delightful quaint town and though I didn't have opportunity to walk in shops...I window shopped..
all the way to Ten Thousand Villages.
Such a pretty door!
As we usually do...
we are drawn to the kitchen area where they also had the most scrumptious treats from the two books to serve their guests.
Look at this Perishky!
We don't eat while we sign books but we sure accepted a
doggie girlie bag for our early breakfast today.
Oh the fun that awaited us there.
I felt so often during the day yesterday that all ten of us should experience the day together.
The people are all so nice and we are so humbled by their smiles in greeting us.
We met people that know people in Abbotsford.
We met people that are related the round about way to people we know in Abbotsford.
She was so happy to meet us and now we know her...
a bit and we know that she knows us....quite a bit.
She was so fun!
Thanks for coming Donna!
At the end of the day...
we arrived at our hotel room near 10 and ordered some room service for our dinner.
It was such a good day.
We ate and then did the post for today...
and hope to be sleeping by midnight so we can be up and ready for tomorrow's taping of 100 Huntley at 7 AM. (to be aired Friday morning)
we will fly home in the afternoon.
For more photos and Anneliese's take on the day...
Thank you everyone for coming to visit us today.
We value each and everyone of you.
all for now...
