Yesterday we headed over to Montpelier for Paul's last book signing. The merchants were promoting shopping downtown as Flannel Friday, so we both dug flannel shirts out for the occasion (actually, I dug, he just wore the usual!). Bear Pond Books was teeming with people, and the old floors creaked and groaned. A few people stopped by, and the events coordinator, Helen, couldn't have been nicer. One fan asked for a tour of Green Mount Cemetery which holds gravestones of some of the interesting characters in the book, so we'll be doing that Thursday if the weather holds.
It's going to be a busy week with meetings, the neighborhood ladies luncheon, and the annual library Friends/trustees staff appreciation dinner. I have party favors for the two meal events - little holiday cookie cutters tied with red bows. Somewhere along the line I need to wrap gifts to mail to Holland, Colorado, and elsewhere. I have done most of the shopping (including copies of Montpelier Chronicles), but do I have enough wrapping paper? I'm avoiding the mall this weekend, but the dollar store may see some business before the weekend is over.
