Subject: QOTD for Monday, January 1, 2024

The Following quote is from Go Tell the Bees I am Gone, by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 3, Rustic, Rural, and Very Romantic. Copywrite 2021, All rights reserved.

The sun was barely up, but Jamie was long gone. I’d awakened briefly when he kissed my forehead, whispered that he was going hunting with Brianna, and vanished into the chilly dark. I woke again two hours later in the warm nest of old quilts—these donated by the Crombies and the Lindsays—that served us as a bed and sat up , cross-legged in my shift, combing leaves and grass heads out of my hair with my fingers, and enjoying the rare feeling of waking slowly, rather than the oft-experienced sensation of having been shot from a cannon.

I just love the pictures Diana paints with her words…can’t you just see the old quilts, shift, and leaves in the hair???

[> Janet, yes, I can! I often think in my daily life how much harder, more uncomfortable ordinary tasks were. While I loved camping, now that I am of a "certain age," I appreciate a cozy bed, and warm, comfortable clothes while doing barn chores. -- DianaH, Tue, January 02 2024, 11:49:33
