My mother gave me a used book this summer by Gladys Taber. I had never heard of this author but instantly became kindred spirits with her soulful writing of country life. There are now five used books of hers in my collection. I savor reading her books for winter nights while soaking away the cares of the day in a bubble bath. The fact that she describes with great detail every day 'happenings' that most people fail to notice .. and then gives directions for what she's making for dinner that night .. lovely (smile) ... pure simple comfort .. both book and food.
Today our snow is melting slowly .. still covering much of the yard ..but the roof is drip, drip, dripping .. a mild warm up in the 40F's towards week's end .. maybe I can find my garden to plant to garlic.
Has winter arrived early at your home?
