Currently it lacks illustrations which I intend to add later (I would like to do richly colored acrylic paintings of two qurrie maids)

When Your Mimi and I Were Young
By Elise Weatherwax

When your Mimi and I were young, we stayed up all night the night of our first date talking about everything, books, and art, what we liked to eat, and our favorite animals.

When your Mimi and I were young, she brought me flowers, and I brought her chocolates.

When your Mimi and I were young she would drive us into the country with the music turned up loud, and we’d have picnics.

When your Mimi and I were young when she kissed me on the cheek she’d leave a red mark.

When your Mimi and I were young we liked to dance barefoot in the grass and do the boogaloo, and the twist, and the mambo, and the hoogabooga.

When your Mimi and I were young we got married on a beautiful autumn day with the honey honey sunlight streaming down.

When your Mimi and I were young we hunted until we found the perfect house, a big old one with a big bright kitchen, and plenty of room upstairs for a family.

When your Mimi and I were young we knew we wanted a baby, so we had a talk about it and decided to make one.

When your Mimi and I were young I got a big round watermelon belly while you grew inside me, and your Mimi had to bring me lots of soup and ice-cream because that was all I wanted to eat.

When your Mimi and I were young we held you in our arms for the first time and were so proud.

When your Mimi and I were young we used to take you to the zoo to see the monkeys, because they were your favorites, and you would laugh so hard when we made monkey noises for you.

When your Mimi and I were young we would take you on walks in the pram and people would fawn over you, and your Mimi and I would beam with pride.

So really... not much has changed.

I love this - I can just see it as a colored picture book. It is really sweet and beautiful.

I'd love for the Sun Daughter Press to publish this book.

I would so love to have this published. I did attempt at start on illustrations the other day, but they didn't come out as I would have liked.

This book was discussed in Virtualia last night and enthusiasm is running rather high! It certainly seems to be a hit among the girls.

We shall be looking into the cost of publishing a full color book - color printing is still rather expensive. If it is feasible we will obviously need to see samples of your illustrations.

Response to the project so far is very positive.

We have looked into this more and it does indeed seem feasible that the Sun Daughter Press could publish the book. When you have an illustration you are happy with I really would like for us to discuss it, perhaps at the Sanctuary in Virtualia.

I myself am not I think the best artist, I might find a friend to do it, or if there is any maid interested in trying her hand at it, I would be most obliged.

I had a thought about illustrations today, what if instead of drawings I did then with some stylized snapsies? I am fairly sure my brunette would go along with the idea and happily play the other part, of course there would be the need to borrow a neonate for some of the images, but I'm sure it could be arranged, as they have babies in kinnies and what not
