Dee of Red Dirt Ramblings included me in a fun and unique meme. While Dee chose a garden book - and I wish could include my favorite garden books (The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden), alas, both are out on loan.
Here's the deal-y-o.

So, I pulled something from my present reading stack. My Life in France by Julia Child. I just finished it this morning and I feel like I was saying goodbye to a good friend. But as I write this, I can hear her voice and have her exclamations running through my head. "Ouf!" "Hooray!" "Bon appetit!" Which are a welcome, wholesome balance to other words that are running through my head these days - as I also have a present addiction to Deadwood. A-hem.
"One Wednesday, Paul came home to join us for lunch, and he brought Mary Parsons, the USIS librarian, who lived in the same hotel as Mary Ward. We served sole meuniere, a mixed salad with chopped hard-boiled eggs, and a dessert of crepes Suzettes flambees au Grand Marnier. As he watched us bustle about the kitchen, Paul was surprised to see how much fun both the students and teachers were having."
I tag anyone who would like to join in. I love seeing what other people are reading.
