"I'm so thankful for friendship. It beautifies life so much."

Hello dear readers! I am here with my best friend who is here to visit, as aforementioned in my last post

We have had a lovely week together, and we have done several fun things. Here are a few. :)

-We stopped for ice cream at the cafe at the end of our road on the way home from early-morning Bible study. 

-We visited a little historic library. She checked out some books the old-fashioned way, for the librarian still writes out the dates in the back of the books.

-We hiked to a waterfall, a 4-mile hike near our house.

-We attempted a 24-hour movie marathon, which lasted 12 hours, ending around 1 am after watching Pride and Prejudice (1995, of course), Emma (2009, of course), and part of Persuasion (1995), with a few breaks. 

It is perfectly lovely, we agree, to watch these movies with someone who knows them as well as you do, for we both quoted several lines from each, and being kindred spirits, we laughed and sighed, etc., at all the right places.

We finished watching Persuasion the next day. We also watched Anne of Avonlea (BBC 1975), which has some terrible casting and some 70's hair and acting, but it does a good job of keeping to the storyline, which is of course a good thing.

-We ate lunch at a perfectly adorable little cafe, which had delicious food, and a bakery, from which it took us forever to choose things. 

-She came to the school with me, which is in fact where we are now. 

She leaves tomorrow, which shall be a sad thing indeed. But we have thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Indeed, "I'm so thankful for friendship. It beautifies life so much."
