Good morning to you all. I feel like I used to feel when I still had time to go out dancing with my girlfriends on friday nights. Hung over. Not an alchohol hangover, but a sleep deprived one.

There was a Jane Austen movie on the Masterpiece Theater last night that I just had to watch and then I could wait no longer to dive into the new book I got, Heatherfield by M. Jean Pike. I started reading and couldn't stop. I was still reading early this morning. So, now I've had my 100th cup of coffee, I might be able to get a little work done.

These are for you Ms. Pike. Can't remember when I've enjoyed a story more. By the way, the coffee is on you. After all, my sleep deprivation is all your fault. Elizabeth
