Jane Austen Quote


“What dreadful hot weather we have!
It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”

~Jane Austen

We’re having a heat wave and I’m glad my condo is air conditioned. I’m heading to Huntington Beach tomorrow for a family cooking event. What a day to cook but it can’t be helped. We’re making Russian Pelemeny for a family function coming up…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! Iā€™m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. It is 100 here today, again. So sorry you have to cook in this.

    Kathy, Stay inside and have a nice iced Earl grey! It should be cooler in Huntington Beach where the cooking is happening. Thankfully it’s all stove top not oven…

  2. Maybe it’ll be a bit cooler in HB….with those ocean breezes…or maybe not! But enjoy your family and maybe you will also tell us what pelemeny is….or have you already posted on that? It sounds vaguely familiar. I love the sound of the word “pelemeny”…

    Sara, I feel a full post with photos on how to make Pelemeny is coming soon…not only here but on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook site, also :0)

  3. You can send some of that warm weather with me up to Anchorage!

    And I love Jane Austen, Aaron’s SIL gave me all seven of her novels in one big bound book for graduation – I can’t wait to start reading them šŸ™‚

  4. Hi Ellen – I love that quote – that’s exactly how I feel right about now! We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow though — I hope we do.

    I am sure you would have fun with your family, despite the heat. šŸ™‚

  5. Having lived in the deep south since 1975, I can relate all too well. It’s sweltering, sticky and humid! A continual state of inelegance, indeed! Blech.

  6. That’s a quote I’m going to have to remember. In Middle Georgia the heat is wet hot. I have naturally wavy hair that when straightened is sleek. But when the humid hot hits it, it goes berserk-o with curling up–into inelegant tendrils. Really, great quote.
