I missed the daily selections, but requested the book from the library after reading some of your comments. I'm totally intrigued by it, a quick read.
As for ironing, BLAAH! I grew up in the South where we always wore cotton or linen (before the days of perma-press) and my mother insisted that we always face the world with tight creases and pleats. Even the sheets and table cloths got the treatment. Standing over that hot ironing board on a hot day was the worst. Now, I still feel the need to iron those cotton shirts and blouses and press the pleats and creases into the khaki pants and shorts, but I always have a "book on tape" to help the time pass. Same with preparing big guest meals. Nothing makes chopping onions more fun than listening to a good book.
Thanks, Suzanne for this selection! If any of you finish the book I'd love to hear your comments.
