Besides too many design blogs, I have also been reading the Anne of Green Gables (all seven of them) series again. When you are little sick of twitter and facebook and cell phones and always being available, these are perfect. Have you read them? I love Anne. Love her. She's lovely and makes me very happy. My favorites these days are the ones that cover her life from when she gets married through the raising of her children. I love how she finds beauty and joy all around her and I love that people know her by those traits, that she is known by others for her eternally good attitude. I love that hard things happen to her but that she finds her way through and that she doesn't let the awful things color the rest of her life. I love the Victorian housewives and how they all judge their own and others worth by their formidable house keeping skills. They are always peeking in one another's drawers and cabinets and gossiping about the quality of their preserves. Delightful. Everything came down to home and family. Also, Lucy Maude Montgomery lovingly describes each and every dress and hairstyle which I completely appreciate because really, it's all very picturesque. And calm and peaceful, which is just what I've been needing.
