The Annotated Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen, David M. Shapard

"could chuse papers, project shrubberies, and invent a sweep."
In which @sprainedbrain I manage to learn one last thing.
As a Gardener I knew about shubberies. But I didn't know what 'invent a sweep' meant.
'A sweep was a curved carriage drive leading to a house.' ?

"The deception could not continue after this;"
This is how I like Miscommunication as a plot device. Resolved in 1 Chapter rather than taking almost 45 hours. ??

Over 4 inches of rain in 3 days and it's still pouring buckets. Time to fire up Audible and work on indoor projects. Now if only I could decide where to start. Project List is neverending. Time for another cup of tea and contemplation. 🤷🏻‍♀️⛈ 📘🎧🏚

julesG We don't have rain. We could do with some though. Still, I can't decide which task to tackle first. 3y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @julesG At the start of Spring when everything started being canceled and staying home became the norm, I thought I'll get so much done. 2mos later 😆 3y
julesG Same! 😂😂😂 10 weeks here since lockdown started. My son went to school today for the first time since mid-March. 3y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @julesG My Husband has been working at home. He's back to work. I haven't had a rainy day to myself in what seems like forever. 3y

“The rent of this cottage is said to be low; but we have it on very hard terms, if we are to dine at the park whenever any one is staying either with them, or with us.” - Marianne

With warmer weather my front porch reading nook is back. 😊

Chocolate Ice Cream, Bailey's, Pecans, and a Chapter.
"Do not you know she calls every one reserved who does not talk as fast, and admire what she admires as rapturously as herself?”
Elinor telling it true about Marianne. ?

Marianne wears me out. It's why reading a Chapter a Day works for me. Just small doses of her passion. 😆

In which Marianne acts like an 8 year old girl who just read The Black Stallion and can't understand why she can't have a horse in the backyard. 🐎 @sprainedbrain
