It all started a few years ago, when I began to hear different friends mention a woman I had never heard of before - Gladys Taber.
I take notice when my friends mention women who influenced them and the fact that Gladys wrote books! Susan Branch even mentioned her!
Then I won a copy of Stillmeadow Calendar from Lorrie, you can read about that here. I have enjoyed reading this book.
I don't know what it is about reading about someone's day to day life. She writes in a way that you are drawn into what goes on in these lovely places that she has made her home.
In June, Rachel and I took a drive to a used bookstore that we favor and I hit the motherlode. Seriously.
These books were so inexpensive, I just couldn't believe it.
I am reading "My Own Cape Cod" right now.
I looked on Amazon and there are more books that she wrote than I knew about. I am going to have to keep my eyes out for more of these treasures.
Have you read any of her books? Do you have a favorite?
Today, I took my mom grocery shopping and to her doctors appointment. We were gone all day, and enjoyed lunch out together too. Tomorrow Tim has the day off (but not the weekend) so we are going to go on a family trip for the day. It's his first day off in a month, and we are going to enjoy it!
I hope you all have a good fourth. It will be a day of remembering all that the founders did to bring forth this nation. It will be a bit of sober reflection I do believe.
I hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Canada Day!
