At first thought it is a wonder that so many of my memories like this are rooted in my Grandmothers personal touches. Upon second glance just thankful that I am lucky enough to have experienced two Grandmother’s as wonderful as I had.Lastly, thank the goddess’ for photographs and letters.Think I’ll go remember now……

your activity book wasn’t “Amazing Days”, was it? no reason it should be, but that was one that I had that I loved.

I love your “things a day” lists. Are you making up the catagories as you go along?

I remember that Good Times book too! They had a whole section about Halloween, and that’s when I learned about the legends behind the vampire myths.
I loved that book too!

Hi Keri, I love your blog and bought ‘Living out Loud’. What a great list – have now been inspired to go away and write my own

i think that’s the one. thank you for finding it. i can’t believe it’s so expensive (125.00!), but it says that it is scarce. the amazon comments indicate that many people are looking for it.
i attribute my love and need to create activity books as an author to this book! i have never forgotten it.
maybe i should contact bantam and let them know there is a demand for a re-release.

I love this list. I take loss very personally and just by writng down (and sketching) a list like this brings it back to our hearts. Thank you!

i totally agree poppy! thank you for your comment.
i actually considered making these things into a mobile as a commemoration. not to brood on the loss but to embrace it a little more.

I’ve been away for a bit, and am just catching up. Just tried to post this with your soap post, but comments were closed. (?)
Are you familiar with Dr. Bronner’s soap? If the answer is no, STOP! Do not look it up! Send me an email with your snail mail address and I will make a present to you. (amber AT teamw.info) They are insanely sustainable and organice and etc.
I don’t always keep up with your blog, but I always drop by to catch up with your blog, and I would like to return the favor.

I loved that book Good Times too! You can get it through Interlibrary Loan. There are still libraries that own it!
