No matter. As I mentioned before, I have dusted the guest room, and am now exploring a bit. First, I met Miss Caroline, a fine lady rather like myself. Evidently she is waiting for my hostess to stitch her apron (despite the fact that my hostess spends more time stitching more than may be prudent, she finishes an amazingly small number of projects). Her pod is somewhat roomier than mine, but I sense that she, too, would like to see more of the world.
Our visit was somewhat brief, but truth be told, I was relieved to get away. My seat - a paperweight that belonged to my hostess' grandmother - was rather slippery, and Caroline has a tendency to roll her eyes a lot. I'm not sure if she is bored, untrustworthy, or just wistful.
I have gathered that my hostess is a librarian, and the shelves lining the guest room confirm this. Her collection is rather extensive, and seems to be composed primarily of fairy tales and fantasy novels. At first I was hesitant to read any of these....after all, I AM a mature woman of no few years who enjoys following the literary adventures of a certain Dr. Kay Scarpetta....but I discovered that some these collections of "fairy tales for adults" are quite titillating!
I must admit I've read through several so far. Here you can see me with some of my favorites....
Well, that is all for now. My hostess tells me we will be leaving soon - I guess whether she is packed or not! - so I am not sure when I will post again. But rest assured that I shall take copious notes and photographs to share later.
