Yesterday my husband and I were sitting around the dinner table when my daughter returned from the mailbox. There was a package for my husband, and as he began opening it I was pouting, sticking my lip out a little and saying in a sad little voice, "Gee, I wish I got packages in the mail." Then as he opened it up he said "Hey, this is for you." I was so excited. It was "Jane Austen, Obstinate Heart, a Biography". I've never read it before and love adding to my JA library. I own several Jane Bio's and have read several more. What a fun treat. My husband said "I told you I was getting it for you." and now I may vaguely remember him mentioning something about a book...... I guess when you have a bad memory every day can be a surprise.
I LOVE Jane Austen--I paint, canvas and walls, write, love houses, decorating, and music--I am a conservative and love politics--I have a sweet husband, three lovely daughters and tons of laughter. I am just a mom trying to have a peaceful orderly house, and a home for beauty and art at the same time--INFJ--I dream in color--I'm a Mormon!--Military wife--My kids say s'mores will make me jump on a table--I meditate daily--incandescent lightbulbs rule-- Once my brother and I had the same dream--I memorized the presidential oath of office when I was 13--I also saved a giant cornflake and displayed it in a jewelry box--I've been chased by police in Japan--Biofuels cause famine.--Not a treadmill kind of girl. When Reagan became president I wrote about it in my diary--There is NO caffeine in chocolate, it's a lie--I can write backwards in cursive--I heart sun and water--I've Danced Mr. Beveridge's Maggot--One day while bored I planned my dinner menu for the entire year--I don't mess with Texas--My puppy is cuter than yours--If a hot fudge tanker truck ever overturns in front of me, I'm turning on my hazard lights, kicking off my shoes, and goin' in.
