''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


I always loved this time of the year, coming home after school to the aroma of the fire in the wood stove and Mama's fruitcakes baking, a sure sign the holidays were on the way.   She  always made things special for us and besides cooking, sewing, gardening and more, she inspired our imaginations with a sense of history, travel and adventure.  .  . it was a privilege.
