What lovely quotes! They bring me to a time I long for; it was just leaving as I was growing up. Merry Christmas!

I'm glad you've discovered Gladys Taber and the Stillmeadow (and Still Cove) books. I've been collecting them for years. They're soothing and provide a place to go to when life gets crazy - like every day, it seems.

What a lovely book! Thank you for sharing. I’ll be keeping my eye out for her name when browsing used bookstores.

Beautiful quotes to end the year with. We had a quieter than usual Christmas, and I enjoyed the low key-ness of it. A new normal, now that our son is a grown man living on his own, and not a little guy trying to figure out what his presents are.


I really enjoyed this book--I will have to find another one to read by her this year. Such a homey chapter was December!


She was amazingly prolific, wasn't she? They are indeed soothing and I am amazed by how well they have aged, too.


I bet you will be able to find her in used bookstores. This was certainly well worth reading if you find a copy!


Yes, the older you get the more holidays change--I totally understand that. Quiet can be good, too. I hope you had a lovely holiday season and many thanks for all the comments--I have not been a very good online friend, so I appreciate your sticking it out with me!
