I am reading my second book by Gladys Taber. I am so inspired by her writing,she had such a graceful way of expressing her thoughts in book form. I found this book "Country Chronicle" at our beautiful new library in the next little small town from our even smaller town,seven miles away :) Our small town, unfortunately doesn't have a public library,but there are two very nice one seven miles away from us...east or west,either way. Same with grocery stores! I choose east...because, I have always used this one,I am familiar with the sweet ladies who work there,and visiting there brings back fond memories of years ago when I lived in that town and would walk to this library with my children when they were small. Of course,that was in the much smaller building,that was quite like a comfortable old home,with a big fire place in the center. Those ladies always kept a fire burning there on cold winter months....I would grab a book off the shelf and sit by the fire and read while my kiddos enjoyed the children's section.

|And this is the old, much smaller ,and quaint library.|
Anyway,back to this book.....while reading it...it inspires me to write my own chronicle of the 20 plus years I have lived here on Red Rock Hill. Just maybe I will someday!
Miss Gladys, herself at her typewriter in her bedroom at Stillmeadow. That would be her dear cat, Amber, sitting in the window sill.
And the path leading from the gate to the door of the ancient Stillmeadow house,built in 1690. I would love to pass through this gate and walk over the threshold of that door. After reading two of her books,I truly feel as I have!
If you are an old soul as me,and enjoy the simple things in life...you too will love the books by Gladys Taber...read then and be inspired. Have a blessed week friends.
