It was a busy week. We delighted in getting to know our new 17-year-old granddaughter, Bailey, at the party we held for her (all of us have been vaccinated) over Labor Day weekend. Bailey is kind, smart, and beautiful. She will be graduating from high school next May, and she plans to study education or something in the medical field in college. "It really doesn't matter to me what I do," she told us, "as long as I can help others." Wow. We eagerly made plans to get together again as soon as we can.
How to Cook a Wolf, a book food writer M.F.K. Fisher first published during World War II, is filled with ideas on ways to cook great meals during the days of rationing during the war. Eager to Love is spiritual author Richard Rohr's book about the life and legacy of Francis of Assisi. Now I can't stop looking for more books about Francis. I'm always on the lookout for books about happiness, and I was charmed by Happiness Found in Translation: A Glossary of Joy From Around the World. Author Tim Lomas shares one hundred of his favorite words about happiness in other languages with us. One of our book club members asked me to read The Journal of Mrs Pepys and see if I agreed with her that it would be a good book for the club. The book is based on the diary kept by Samuel Pepys from 1660 to 1669, but the story is told from the point of view of Samuel Pepys. Do I think it would be a good book for the club? Definitely.
