Stop the bus, I’m all funned out!

This last week has been “oh my gods” busy. After the birth of the kittens, life did not slow down. Instead, it got busier. Why? Well, because it was the week of the Grand Opening for the Spanish Peaks Public Library. It was an all hands on deck event. Dan, Beth and John were at the library every day from dawn to way after dark. The only reason that I wasn’t there helping was a nasty chest cold. The last thing I wanted to do was give anyone that cold.

Thursday was the opening event. A Gala Party…… Lots of dignitaries of one kind or another and plenty of people in fancy clothes.

We had lots of lovely food and it was a good evening.

I even got all dressed up.

Then there was Friday and Saturday. Friday was the big ribbon cutting ceremony with all the speakers and state dignitaries.

  1. love the fireplace of slate, the green at the children’s checkout and both your dresses and shawls look better on you than on the hanger!!! hugs, well done dearie 🙂

    I think the fireplace is pretty cool too! The library and the architect got an award for the best green building. The entire children’s library is green. It starts out that really loud green and slowly mutes a bit by the teen section. And I should hope that my outfits look better on me than on the hanger! :>
