Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 2 Lady Catherine

Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 2 Lady Catherine

It is very human for people to wish bad things will happen to bad people, whether the bad people are real or fictional. Jane Austen was surprisingly kind to her unpleasant characters. I am not as nice as she was, but I am not going to give horrible endings to them. I’m just going to… more goodness …

Top Ten Goofs in Emma (1997)

Top Ten Goofs in Emma (1997)

Are you thinking that the title of this post is a goof? I can practically hear the objections winging their way across the cosmos.

I scour magazine articles about how to plan a party, and I collect Pinterest posts about entertaining; but then I think of all the work involved. First, I’d have to clean, then I’d have to cook something worth… more goodness …

Literally Fluffy and Full of Joy

Literally Fluffy and Full of Joy

The subject of today’s post is best described as fluffy. Literally. We gained a new addition to our family this month. His birth name is King. My music loving daughter added ‘Sgt.
