So for the past week or so we have been stuck in the house, fighting ear infections (swimmer's ear) and bronchitis. We can't go swimming and it is so stinkin' hot that I have been letting the kids hide out in the house playing hours and hours of video games.

Antibiotics, Humidity and Unhealthy Amounts of Jane Austin
This frees Robin and I up to watch Jane Austin movies one after the other.
So far we've watched:
Emma (two different versions).
Persuasion (two different versions).
Sense and Sensibility
We've each read Emma and Persuasion this summer. I tend to like the movies that are true to the books. Robin seems to like the movies that take more licence with the stories.
This is one of the best parts about having a teenaged daughter.
We're moving away from Miss Austen now and have ordered some other period romances. Howard's End and A Room With a View are on the way. Any other suggestions??
