Florida, We've Left. Reality Here We Be.

Ahhh, vacation. The easy life of doing nothing if you feel like it or shoving everything you can into a week as we did. Your choice! Sometimes though, a full vacation can lead to you needing a vacation from your vacation when you get back to reality! That's where I'm at. I took the weekend and caught up on my sleep, laying around and TV show watching. Basically being a slug, which we did not do on vacation.

Today I made a bookmark. The Altered Gypsies have decided to return to the Jane Austen Book Club once again. We have just cracked the pages of Pride & Prejudice. You're welcome to play along! Just make a Jane Austen bookmark and read the book. (Let me know if you make a bookmark, I wanna see!)

We're commenting while we read, at the forum boards. There's only a few of us reading it but anytime you can get someone to read a classic, its a grand thing. If you have not read it, I recommend doing so. And then you can reward yourself by watching the movie of the same name with Colin Firth in it (you can't go wrong there!) although my teenager is partial to the version with Keira Knightley. I like both!

Love that bookmark!

I know what you mean about vacations. That's why I've cancelled going anywhere the last few! I'm always in need of another vacation when I get back from the "real" one *sigh*
