Jane Austen for Preschoolers

Just this morning before heading off to church I spotted Sense and Sensibility on television. Of course, I had to stop and watch a bit! Katie (4) came into the room and looked at the tv.

Katie: Is this with Mr. Darcy?
Me: No, this is Sense and Sensibility. Mr. Darcy is not in this movie. This has Mr. Willoughby and Brandon.
Katie: (starts looking for our Pride and Prejudice DVD that is in a pile of DVD's on the floor.)
Me: They are wearing the same kind of clothes and speak the same way as they do in the movie with Mr. Darcy... they were both written by the same author, Jane Austen.
Katie: (finds the Pride and Prejudice DVD, holds it up, smiles sweetly) Here is Mr. Darcy.

If you love the clothing worn in Sense and Sensibility and Emma, check out this site;


The Love of God

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

What a fantastic word picture!
You can even go and listen to the song and read a little more of the back story to this hymn.



I was thinking about how the subtitle to my blog includes may have guessed I consider knitting and cooking to be the more interesting duties of a homemaker...
So in order to legitimize my homemaking claim here are two tips.

That OUST really works. I like the 'outdoor scent'.

Bagless vacuums are kinda messy to empty.


....and perhaps for the last time this year...
