Quiet Blog

Gentle readers, I broke my foot and thus the blog will be quieter than it has been for a while. Thank you for your patience! Meanwhile, to keep you amused, I shall pair an image with a Jane Austen quote in a few posts until I regain my energy.

Mr. Knightley (Jeremy Northam) drinks tea
During the Georgian era, tea was a new luxury item that was kept under lock and key. Jane Austen estimated that the consumption of tea at Godmersham was 12 lb. A quarter. - Jane Austen and Food, Maggie Lane

Take care and perhaps enlist the help of Mr. Willoughby for a foot rub. Get well soon.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Perhaps a nice (gasp) Gothic novel will be a pleasant diversion.
