Mini Road Trip

Music: birds singing & fountain burbling on the front porch

Today was a little road trip to Morenci, Michigan, a little town about 2 hours southwest from Royal Oak. We went to the Stair Public Library to meet author Elizabeth Berg one of my favorite fiction authors. It was lots of fun; she was so gracious, smiling even with her eyes, and the audience asked lots of good questions. I even got up the nerve to ask her a question! There were some refreshments afterwards, where Jim and I enjoyed some raw veggies and fresh fruit. The staff of the little library even presented Elizabeth Berg with a basket of fresh lettuce and other Michigan produce!

On the drive home, of course, we were ready for dinner so we stopped in Ann Arbor and ate at Seva. I enjoyed a cilantro-peanut stir fry while Jim ordered the North African couscous. All in all, a very enjoyable day with beautiful Michigan summer weather.
