Weekly Journal: Jane Austen

Happy Sunday!  I'm getting this out a little later than usual and I have no excuse. I've had a very lazy weekend and it's been glorious.  A run, a long walk, lots of time playing in the garden, cooking, family games and movies, planning for next week and reading, of course!  It is exactly what I needed!

What I'm reading: Sanditon by Jane Austen.  This is an unfinished novel written just months before the author's death, and it's her most progressive of all. I'm just getting to know the spunky heroine, Charlotte Heyword, but so far I'm really enjoying it.  I hope to finish soon so I can watch the Andrew Davies' Masterpiece miniseries. It looks so good, I can't wait!

What I'm looking forward to:  the newest Emma movie!  And I just saw that Carson Ellis, one of my favorite artists. designed the cover for the soundtrack.  I have tentative plans to see it with a friend next weekend.

What I'm cooking: sourdough discard crackers!  I tried Deanna's recommendation for Sun dried tomato, cheese and rosemary today and they did not disapoint. The basic recipe appears on her blog, Homestead and Chill, along with a lot of great gardening and cooking resources. They just might be my favorite part of having a sourdough starter again (although the bread is pretty amazing, too).

What I'm listening to: The Good List podcast by Tsh Oxenrider.  I've followed Tsh's blog, The Art of Simple, for years but I'm loving her podcast even more.  It's a beautiful, short dose of inspiration delivered weekly.  

What I'm loving: the little plant lady in the photo above from Target.  They had a few color combinations and sizes and I'm brainstorming to justify getting another one.  Trader Joe's had the perfect little plants to fit inside for $1.99.  Now, if I can just keep it alive!
