It all started with a text from my daughter Kaleigh.
So this past Monday evening, the 200th Anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, after a day filled with appointments and errands, I came home to fresh baked shortbread cookies in the shape of tea bags with sweet little silhouette & teapot tags.
The coffee table had been transformed into a tribute to Jane Austen.
A garland of silhouettes and Austen quotes was hung from the mantle.
And dinner was in the oven! Brown sugar and garlic chicken, salad and broccoli with shortbread cookies for dessert.
Kaleigh was grumbling…“My feet hurt! I don’t know how you do this every night! I feel like I’ve been in here forever!” Here being the kitchen. (It’s nice feeling appreciated every once in a while.)
We watched the Keira Knightley/Matthew Macfadyen version of Pride and Prejudice. (I tried to talk her in the A&E 6 hour version but she wouldn’t go for it.)
The guys grudgingly gave up the big TV for one night.
We laughed. Said things like “I love this part”…”I love her”…”He’s so funny!”…”Why are they playing Mr. Bingley like a nitwit?”…
And had a wonderful girls night with Jane.
Thank you, Kaleigh!
