Time for Being a Jane Austen Mystery Book Club‼️
1️⃣ After the grandeur of Chatsworth with #JaneandtheStillroomMaid it was interesting to see a different side of Jane's life with her Navy Captain brother Frank.
2️⃣ Two favorite quotes.
"I expect a severe March, a wet April, and a sharp May,” I returned. “But we may hold out hope for June, Mary. What would England be, after all, without her June?”
“Scotland,” ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig And learning that Jane believes it's 5 o'clock somewhere:
“I believe, my dear, that we should fortify ourselves with a glass of wine.”
“But it is barely ten o‘clock in the morning, Jane!”
“And the sun is not yet over the yardarm.” I smiled up at him. “Consider, Frank, that if you were in the Indies now— or rounding the Horn…”⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig 3️⃣ Jenny for how she embellished Jane's story of why they were searching for The Bosun‘s Mate. Missed Lord Harold!
4️⃣ Frenchman's story.
5️⃣ Jiggery- pokery. It's my new favorite phrase.
6️⃣ I love the quiet of winter after the holidays. I'm actually always a bit sad to see it ending. Spring brings so much busyness.⬇️
Crinoline_Laphroaig 7️⃣ I rather wait at home warm and snug. Especially in Jane's time. Can you imagine the smell on those boats.
8️⃣ Dodge the chamberpots. At least you're outside in the fresh air. Wool House probably smelled worse than ship did.
9️⃣ I had this exact conversation with my mother countless times. "There is nothing wrong with you, as you very well know, that a little activity should not cure. You are too much indisposed. Fresh air is what you require.”
