heated inelegance

It has been so hot lately. It looks like the end of the month is going to be a little cooler than the last couple of weeks. Which is a good thing because my wife has managed to make it through another summer in a van without air conditioning.

I was looking for another quote when I ran across this one. It reminded me of my wife (and some of her friends) so much, I just had to put it on my blog.

"What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance."
~Jane Austen

I am telling you, my wife was born in the wrong era and in the wrong class. She and Jane would have been good friends.


  1. Ah....Jane.

    I love that quote!


  2. Love the quote. I am going to use it. Since my house is filled with women, it is always like a living and breathing Jane Austen novel.


  3. I only have one Jane Austen living in my house, but that is enough, I think.


Leave a thought of your own.
