Breakfast With Friends

I love to eat out. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing better than a great home-cooked meal. But slaving away in the kitchen day after day wears on a body. So once or twice a week, Michael and I eat out. My favorite meal to dine away from home is breakfast. Whether it's a sausage biscuit from Bojangles or a lavish spread of french toast, bacon, and fresh fruit at the Village Tavern, it's a great way to start the day!

Saturday morning, however, the friends of Archdale Library gathered together and spread a table in the library fit for any hungry Southerner! I don't know who made the quiche, but it rocked, as far as I was concerned. After filling our tummies, a panel of five authors spoke to a nice-sized crowd. The interest in our books sparked great conversations and many in the audience were aspiring authors. Our little Archdale Library is a special place of retreat for many in my small community. The library sits amidst a rolling landscape of large trees and manicured lawns, but the support it gives to local authors is commendable.

Sunday ... Bob Evans was the meeting place ... our dear friends Blair and Dena met us for the pig-out breakfast feast. We plan and dream about the future with these precious ones. Dena Harris, writer extraordinaire,, and I plot and plan our next move in the literary world. Together, we lend great support to one another. It's been that way now, for the past 2 and half years ... and I expect to be around when she wins the Pulitzer someday.

We're off to Memphis this week, and the Southern Festival of the Book. I'll keep you posted. Of course, when we're on the road ... I long to come home. Home is where I work best ... writing ... sleeping ... and of course run out for breakfast whenever I can manage it!

Blessings to you and yours.
