Today is a Prelude. Waiting, Breathless, Tangled - blissfully unable to move... Anticipating... Knee deep in snow but Oooooo I love February!

And it's Friday! And I've just watched Sense & Sensibility! Can you believe it - I've never read the books or seen the movies?! So a couple weeks ago hubby and I rented Pride & Prejudice. And now I'm happily hooked! This was only my second in the series. I'm taking them slow and savoring each one! It was just a little bonus that Hugh Laurie was snuggled into a few corners of Sense & Sensibility! (I'm disappointed with House lately though - too many comparasions of himself and God. Is anyone else as deeply in denial about it as I am? Perhaps I should write to the Writer's Guild. They would care what one viewer thinks, right?! -insert smirk with rolling eyes here).

I've started a new book and announced that we'll be ordering pizza tonight! I've been working so hard that even I can say that I need a break! No, I can't tell you. But... be here Monday! Here's a vintage valentine tag... Like a string-on-your-finger reminder.

Feels like something new is around the corner! Anticipation is half the fun, don't you think?!

(p.s. I think it's going to be a silly day... It's Superbowl weekend and I don't care a lick about football this year, but it was funny to wake up to the headline "Playboy vs. Mamma's boy"! Even funnier when my 4 year old asked me to sign his baseball. AND he wanted me to sign it "Babe Ruth"! He watched Sandlot yesterday. =) The mailman has just arrived and, as the envelopes poked through the slot, my daughter sweetly yells at the door, "Thaaaaaanks!" Yep, Spring Fever has hit!)


  1. Oh you have something up your sleeve?

    I love love love Pride & Prejudice...I made my hubby sit and watch it~he loved it too! Will wonders never cease!

    Have a great weekend,

  2. I'm giggling over here....sign the baseball, oh that is just priceless! Sandlot is a favorite in our house.


  3. I've just treated myself to Sense & Sensibility which I will be watching shortly and like you had never seen!!


  4. I love your there anyway I can find out what some of the movies in it are from? I haven't seen some of them.

    I've seen both versions of Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, Little Women...I was so SUPRISED that you had not seen them yet being the romantic that you are!!! They are mine & my hubby's favorite movies. We even have all the soundtracks and listen to them regularly.

  5. Hey Sis -
    I Love Sense & Sensibility - one of my favorite movies!!! Hooked on all the Jane Austen sets anyway. What a cool post - I too LOVE February - the romance, the valentines, the oooh la la! I just re-did the blog and website in PINK - I think it's because of February. hey, Can I come to your house tonight?? I want some Pizza too! (Hawaiian is my fave) I'm off to watch your you tube thingie - sometimes my computer acts up and I can't view them but I will try!!
    xoxo Hugs, Sher

  6. Hope you enjoy your new book. Have you read The Shell Seekers? I loved it.
    Enjoy your pizza, I think we are ordering out tonight too. Have a nice weekend and I'm already looking to Monday. Linda

  7. Oh I hoped you watched the BBC's 1995 version pf P&P, it's VERY long but worth it because so much of the details of the book were made into the movie and it's just.. well... Capitol! ha ha Not at all like some of these 90 minute adaptions! If you haven't seen that particular version I truly hope you'll rent it, it's the best! By the way, looking forward to your Monday reveal! Have a great night!

  8. Loved the part about signing the baseball! Just too cute! I had pizza 2nite too! Must be in the air or something.
    Have a great weekend!

    I sent you an e-mail.....PBS has been having an entire "Jane Austen Series" on Sunday nights on "Masterpiece Theatre" weekend (Feb. 10)they will be showing.."Sense and Sensibility" with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
    Stay in and have some pizza tonight.....brrrr. It's cold up there.
    It's cold here to us. HA!
    Be blessed,

  10. A new read. How wonderful. I have a questio is there a site you can go to and get those vintage Valentine's. Sunday is my sweet Sister's birthday and I want to make her a vintage looking Valentine . If you have the answer Please e-mail me. Thank-You so much...Mary

  11. Didn't you just love those movies!! Do you have something special happening? Can't wait to hear about it...Have a great weekend Polly!

  12. Polly!! I just saw the new photo of you in your profile...thank you!!! Pretty girl :)
    Inside and out.
    The Sandlot hahhahha oh how many times have we watched that one!!! Babe Ruth LOL!
    I guess you don't have an ebay going right now?

  13. My sons love The Sandlot too. They walked around saying "THE GREAT BAMBINO" for 2 weeks.

    I haven't watched any of these movies either. But if the clip is any indication, I would love them!


  14. Your New Book Looks so Fun, I need to start taking some time to read again. I only watch the Superbowl for the commercials,lol. I love That Victorian Door Hanger in Your Post :) Have a Great Weekend Polly :)


  15. Sense & Sensibility is my absolute favorite! I could watch it over and over...haven't seen the new P & P yet husband falls asleep during these types of movies, so we get them!

    I enjoyed the football headline too...Mamma's boy won...I placated my husband by watching the last 15 minutes with him...and pretended to enjoy it ;)

    I just love the snippets of your daily life...your son and his baseball and your daughter yelling thanks to the mailman...what an amusing life you lead!!!!

  16. I absolutely love this! This is how it was at our house last night with the Superbowl not on. I watched Sense & Sensibility last night and then Miss Austen regrets on PBS with lots of candles lit ~ thanks for sharing. The Babe Ruth comment was so cute.

  17. I love all things Jane Austin, Sense and Sensibility included! Did you know PBS Masterpiece Theater is doing all 6 of her stories on Sunday nights?

    I'm a House watcher, too--love Hugh Laurie. I've let the God comments from House pass over, knowing that it fits House's cynical character.


Something worth sharing...
