Marjorie's Busy Days

Overview

"What do you say, King, railroad smash-up or shipwreck?"
"I say shipwreck, with an awfully desert island."
"I say shipwreck, too," said Kitty, "but I don't want to swim ashore."
"All right," agreed Marjorie, "shipwreck, then. I'll get the cocoanuts."
"Me, too," chimed in Rosy Posy. "Me tumble in the wet water, too!"

The speakers in this somewhat enigmatical conversation were the four Maynard children, and they were deciding on their morning's occupation. It was a gorgeous day in early September. The air, without being too cool, was just crisp enough to make one feel energetic, though indeed no special atmospheric conditions were required to make the four Maynards feel energetic. That was their normal state, and if they were specially gay and lively this morning, it was not because of the brisk, breezy day, but because they were reunited after their summer's separation.

CHAPTER III PICNIC PLANS One entire day out of each month Mr. Maynard devoted to the entertainment of his children.

The children were allowed to choose in turn what the entertainment should be, and if possible their wishes were complied with. As there had been so much bustle and confusion consequent upon their return from the summer vacation, the September " Ourday " did not occur until the second Saturday. It was Marjorie's turn to choose the sport, for, as she had been away at Grandma Sherwood's all summer, she had missed three Ourdays. So one morning, early in the week, the matter was discussed at the breakfast table. " What shall it be, Midget? " asked her father. " A balloon trip, or an Arctic expedition ? " Marjorie considered. " I want something outdoorsy," she said, at last, " and I think I'd like a picnic best. A real picnic in the woods, with lunch-baskets, and a fire, and roasted potatoes." " That sounds all right to me," said Mr. May- nard; "do you want a lot of people, or just ourselves ? " It was at the children's pleasure on Ourdays to invite their young friends or to have only the family, as they chose. Sometimes, even, Mrs. Maynard did not go with them, and Mr. Maynard took his young brood off for a ramble in the woods, or a day at the seashore or in the city. He often declared that but for this plan he would never feel really acquainted with his own children. " I don't want a lot of people," said Marjorie, decidedly; "but suppose we each invite one. That makes a good-sized picn...
