Post 1754 - Ami McKay Tonight

These words come, yet again, from the Port William library.  Remind me to get an internet connection at my mother's some day.  Or not.  Probably not.

Patricia will be driving from the city right after work in order to be here for the Ami McKay presentation at 7pm.  McKay wrote a well-received novel called The Birth House a few years ago that Patricia read and enjoyed immensely.  I met McKay about 18 months ago when I drove through Canning and chanced upon the library when it was open.  Going inside, McKay was reading from her book, and there was cake to boot.  It's a nice little library there; I just wish it were open more often than it is.

Patricia has never met Ami McKay and wants to rectify that.  So, she'll come up here right after work and see her.  Tomorrow, we may go to the Wolfville Farmer's Market and then to Blomidon Nurseries before she returns to the city tomorrow night.  I return to the city on Sunday and to work on Monday.

Have been away from the city for a sudden vacation for 9 days now.  Except for my work and my friends and co-workers, I don't really miss it that much.  I spent nearly the first 24 years of my life in the Annapolis Valley, rarely leaving it, and got along fine.  I got along fine here the last 9 days.  This is a great place to live.

Off to start preparing dinner.

See you tomorrow.
