Some skill involved November 25, 2009

She seemed glad to see me when I appeared in the kitchen, and by watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl. (from To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee)

Okay, I don’t know if this really counts as a children’s book, but I’m going to file it under “young adult” so it can pass for one. I read it every year. It certainly tells a story from a child’s eye view and I just can’t not include it in this blog–Atticus and Miss Maudie have too much to tell us and Scout is just too delightful to miss.

I chose this quote for today because I am baking ten pies and two loaves of bread today. There is definitely some skill involved in being a girl.
