 "But housekeeping is fun, and I think the women who hate it lack imagination. It is one job where you enjoy the results right along as you work. You may work all day washing and ironing, but at night you have the delicious feelingof sunny clean sheets and airy pillows to lie on. If you clean, you sit down at nightfall with the house shiningand faintly smelling of wax, all yours to enjoy right then and there.
And if you cook---ah, if you cook---that creation you lift from the
oven goes right to the table."

~~Gladys Taber, Stillmeadow Seasons~~

I don't know if I can get behind Gladys first sentence part B. But, I sure like the rest of her comments. 
It started me to wonder, do any of you have any of Gladys' recipes?  I have yet to purchase one of her cookbooks.

I almost gave a loud squeal right there in the middle of the used book sale when I found the flower arranging one. I have been collecting Gladys's books since 1983, and that was the first time I had ever even SEEN that one. And there it was, just sitting there carelessly on a table with a lot of other gardening books. I was sure that I was going to look inside it and see that it was beyond my budget.

The first two Stillmeadow books I got were from a pen pal in Pennsylvania. She had duplicates of Stillmeadow Calendar and Stillmeadow Road, so she sent them to me and said she thought I might like this author. Like her? I was hooked from then on. Oddly, I had often seen the books on library shelves but never picked one up. They were probably calling to me for years before that kind lady dropped two in my lap.
