Austenprose on Holiday!

All roads lead to Jane Austen (Chawton road sign)

Well, not really a holiday, but it sounds much better than telling you all that I am in the midst of moving to a new cottage here in the Pacific Northwest and my life is in transit right now. In this instance, we are in agreement with that buffoon Robert Ferrars…

“For my own part,” said he, “I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to spare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me, and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage.” Robert Ferrars, Sense and Sensibility, Ch 36

I will have intermittent Internet for the next week or so dependent on when they can get my new service up and running. Even though my life is up in air at the moment, I would never forget my loyal readers and have scheduled posts to publish automatically at midnight over several days. We shall have blog tours by Mary Simonsen and Victoria Connelly, book reviews by Kimberley and a new addition to the review staff, Br. Paul, yep, a real Dominican friar who is a true Janeite, so it should be entertaining while I am away. You won’t even know I’m gone!!!

Just remember if you are new to the site and have not posted a comment before, you will be in the queue awaiting approval until I read it, so it might take a few days.

Everyone have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.

  1. Have a wonderful weekend too and good luck with the move! Just the word cottage makes me dream of owning one myself someday. It sounds so cosy and nice.


  2. Laurel Ann, Congratulations and good luck to you on the move! A “cottage” sounds so lovely. I know that you, your Jane Austen collection, and the Jane bobble head will be right at home in your new cottage.


  3. Good luck with your move! Have a great weekend & thanks for taking such good care of us while you will be away!


  4. Laurel Ann did you take that picture? It’s an iconic road sign isn’t it.

    I hope your move goes smoothly. I know exactly what you are going through.



  5. Laurel Ann, take care while you move and know that we’ll miss you. Thank you for arranging to feed our Jane mania! We’ll look forward to hearing from you when you recover!


  6. It is a small world! We lived in the foothills of the Cascades for 11 years and the community is now incorporated and is named “Sammammish.” It is STILL our familie’s favorite place ever. You will eventually get acclimated to the overcast, drizzles, fogs and lack of sun. I hope your move goes smoothly. It is the most gloriously beautiful region in the western hemisphere and that is saying a lot.


  7. Having a beautiful cottage would be incredible, and cozy & warm! I hope your move goes smoothly and that you don’t have to wait too long to get your internet service up and running. Enjoy your holiday weekend too!! :)
