So. Did you like my teaser yesterday? No? Well, I can only give you one more hint today and then we must all wait a week (or more) to discover the rest, ok? (Patience, patience...)
Here's your last hint: Because Tom was in the right place yesterday at just the right moment, I may be able to resurrect the ol' Suzy Homemaker I've missed so much.
There. That's your clue. (Deal with it....heh...) And now I must zip my lip because Tom doesn't want me to reveal more. But believe me, it's been fun doing some new kind of dreaming since yesterday. Happy sigh.
See those books, above? If you told me I'd be spending the rest of my life on a deserted island and could only take ten books along with me, well, those are the ten I'd bring.
It's Bright In My Valley by Philip Jerome Cleveland
Cousin William by Della T. Lutes
Mary Emma & Company by Ralph Moody
Chicken Every Sunday by Rosemary Taylor
Mama Makes Up Her Mind by Bailey White
Ten Kids, No Pets by Ann M. Martin
Practically Seventeen by Rosamond du Jardin
More Adventures With David Grayson by David Grayson (which is cheating because it contains 3 books...heh..)
The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
And if I could bring 15, I'd stuff these into my suitcase:
Thoughts of Home compiled by Elaine Greene
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Ramona The Pest by Beverly Cleary
Gone Away Lake by Elizabeth Enright
Journal of a Happy Woman by June Strong
(Notice how worn-out most all of these books appear?) In fact, looking over those last five, I'd certainly better be allowed to bring 15 books, after all. I can't imagine living happily without any of these.
Of course, some of you who have read this far are questioning my sanity. My taste in books, certainly. Or my 'emotional age' since half these books are kids' lit. But honestly? I can truly say these are my best-loved books, ones I'm likely to grab for comfort reading, ones I'd recommend to you if you asked me.
And well, some things just are the way they are. Me, for instance. :)
Uh-oh! Technically, if I had to live on a deserted island, I'd better bring along one 'survival in the wild book', right? So the total must now be changed to 16 books.................
Anybody read at least 4 of these?
