The Art of Keeping Warm, Literary--ily Speaking!
The east coast, and possibly much of the country is under a storm warning...we may get up to 8 inches of snow. I know, I know...you folks in the north and midwest are crying out at a mere 8 inches. However, Richmond IS the gateway to the SOUTH! It shouldn't be that cold here! So it is time to break out the socks! And not ANY socks will do... especially when these gorgeous Jane Austen quotation socks are available!
I had to grab my "Emma" from my 16 year old son's room. Yes you heard that correctly, my 16 year old son is taking British literature and was assigned to read Emma last semester. He was nearly finished with the book when we decided to watch the 1996 Gwyneth Paltrow movie together. He absolutely loved it, and it cleared up some of the nuances of language that he wasn't quite getting by reading. Actually, I didn't know he laid hold of my favorite edition....the edges are curled a bit, but that is a SMALL price to pay to have a 16 year old boy read Austen!
The Jane Austen Quote on the sock reads: "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like
reading." Jane Austen
I couldn't agree more!
Teavana White Chocolate Peppermint Tea (to die for, delicious!)
After taking this picture....I had to grab a mug and fill it to the brim to warm my hands. That is the down side to living in a 100 year old Virginian farm house. So grab your socks, hot beverage, a favorite Jane Austen Book and hunker down...that's the art of staying warm!
