I knew yesterday my Spark friend in the Southern part of the state was doing a book signing for her first illustrated children's book.
We visit together about once a month and I had been able to see the pictures and concept of her first book/
I was up early and decided DH and I would walk in to the Library and surprise her.
We drove to the library almost two hours away, she was sitting at a table with the books all spread out. There were people in front of the table who were getting books signed. My Spark friend was talking with them and she saw DH and I behind her fans. She jumped out of her seat and rushed across the room laughing and shouting and so excited to see us. She was surprised.
It made my day, we stayed for a while but we were getting hungry so we left and ate then DH and I walked up to her house at the top of a hill and turned at the top and we were happy to be going down.
Recently our rail trail walks have been without many inclines. My legs had a burn, I will have to get to my Strength training and this was a wake up call.
DH and I went back and others were buying books. My friend had a few family members and another friend from her past. I sat with them and we coloured Pages made from the colorful book and we chatted and got to know one another.
DH found another DH so he had a good time too.
I had to give up my Spark time and it was so worth it to be there to support her moment of success.
Then DH and I had to leave to drive back home.
I had dinner to fix and started to Spark way too late.
I hope to catch up tomorrow. Only now will I read my Spark friends comments on my Blog.
Way to go.
Spark friend and HERE'S to many more publishing.
PS I got books signed too for my grands who love My friends art work.
