Portsmouth is Portsmouth and Mansfield is home. That is what Fanny Price realizes after a month back in her Mother and Fathers house.This last month I've been so busy....graduation, recitals, children traveling here and there, and on top of that a 9 day cold/flu that was like something out of the middle ages....that I haven't had much inclination for posting. Life was too busy for me, to hectic for my naturally slow pace. So what did I do? Retreat into Mansfield Park. Mansfield Park is my home in a sense too. It's my home away from home, when the stress here seems too much. I collect those two or three families in a country village that I know so well. I adore Fanny Price. She is the sister of my heart. I follow her through her trials and injustices. I honor her for her self control and self awareness. I stash my novel and read a chapter whenever I get a spare moment, and before I know it, I'm feeling better, I've watched the progress of spring, and our calandar is all but cleared for the summer months.
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.
