Lunch at Julia's


The Habitat Restore has a
coffee shop called Julia's.
It is named after a founder
who gave much to others.
Today was lunch with the two
lovely ladies I teach with. ( high school
group) It was one's birthday!
The coffee is from South America
and the proceeds go down to that
store! Chicken salad and the most
delicious scone which we asked
to be topped with whipped cream
to celebrate , sort of an English birthday
cake! And the best cinnamon lattes!
Sure beats the chain coffee places to have
something homemade!

What was lovely was a group of knitters
came in before we left! They sat in front
of us. They had size 35 needles! That would
be a fast and wide stitch! Another lovely
was being right by the books , sort of like
having lunch in a library! Found a hardback
of a biography of Sarah Orne Jewett and a
book on poetry ~~ one of my passions besides
letters and paintings! The birthday girl found
"JACK"....not my friend's dog , but CS Lewis!

an old copy of The Country of the Pointed
Firs:

What a nice time! And I love the look of the old book. Were these books for sale, or just to read while you are there?

Books for sale right next to where you eat!
Not the old copy of The Country
of the Pointed Firs...which is way up where you are. Wonder if you've been to her home?

Bonnie, I haven't and I should because my aunt lives in the same town in Maine. I need to go visit her as well. I'm very fond of this book and have read it a few times.
