We have been watching the great Jane Austen movies.
First we watched Sense and Sensibility.
Katie liked this couple!
They always drive me a bit crazy but Katie thought they were very funny.
I like Colonel Brandon.
Then we watched Pride and Prejudice.
Three hours one night and three the next morning. I was so pleased to notice that Katie understood the formal English language. I know it was hard for me when I started watching these fancy movies :o)
We are different in this way, I have noticed. When I was young I found it troubling if I didn't understand words in books and that would make me decide they were too hard for me. Katie plows thru and if she doesn't get a word, she just keeps reading and she doesn't let it bother her. I'm glad for her. I wish I had someone leading the way for me...but I didn't, so I bloomed late. Which is better than not blooming at all I guess :o)
Btw, Katie liked happy Bingley. Both of my girls have always liked him best.
This is how Mr. Bingley smiles.
This is how Mr. Darcy smiles. He is very happy here. Can't you tell?
"And your parents are in good health? and all your sisters . . . "
I think my favorite part of the whole mini series is when Elizabeth runs into the a flustered Mr. Darcy at Pemberly (happily situated Pemberly)
Ah. heck. Let's watch it.
Katie liked it very well....
What can I say, my job is done here.
