We’ve had problems with our server service all week-end. It started on Thursday, we called the cable company, they said they were “experiencing difficulties” and of course, just then, service returned…only to be off again almost immediately. Its been like that all week-end-a long holiday week-end here-service on for a sec, so you think its fixed, then off again.
However, there was a Jane Austen Festival on TV so I just sat and watched!It wasn’t the usual festival type fare either…not continuous reruns of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility or Emma…this time it was really fun and different. Friday night was “The Jane Austen Book Club”-I had read the book and wasn’t too thrilled but the movie was a lot more fun-thoroughly enjoyable. Saturday night was a two-part mini-series “Lost in Austen”: a modern English girl, Amanda Price, devoted to Austen walks through a door and exchanges places with Elizabeth Bennett! Lots of fun, lots of making a mush of everything,lots of fun send-ups of favorite P &P lines -all spoken in very Jane Austen English by everyone except Amanda.
While watching all this, I did get some embroidery done: my first block from the Shabby Rose BOM
