Somebody, make me a loaf of bread…whoops, too late, I already am one. Hah! I have been tired today, though I am not sure why. Sleep, yes…that’s covered. An easy day, I spent just kind of loafing (putting off bills/demands today – shh, they’ll hear us). It’s going to be an interesting time to make up today, but sometimes, one just needs a day. Or five? Wishful thinking, I know.
Speaking of wishful thinking -whoa, what a segway-, I found some letters by Jane Austen online. She mostly writes to her family members. Some letters have romantic tendencies (like her writings), some have a a quirky sense of humor – which, of course, attracted me like a bee to a flower.
Some quotes from the letters:
“I had a very pleasant evening, however, though you will probably find out that there was no particular reason for it; but I do not think it worth while to wait for enjoyment until there is some real opportunity for it.” — letter of January 21 1799
“I could no more write a [historical] romance than an epic poem. I could not sit seriously down to write a serious romance under any other motive than to save my life; and if it were indispensable for me to keep it up and never relax into laughing at myself or other people, I am sure I should be hung before I had finished the first chapter.” — letter of April 1st 1816
“I have read [Byron’s] The Corsair, mended my petticoat, and have nothing else to do.” — letter of March 5, 1814
And, now…I have nothing else to do. LOL So, excuse me while I go find something. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves until I return. 😉
