Blue skies and first impressions...

I never quite realize how much I love and miss the sunshine until it's gone for days.

I didn't even really care that everything is still wet and soggy.

I had to open my window. I love it when I can open one of my windows-that's perfect weather to me. I sat on my hope chest (which is sort of a window seat) near the window and just enjoyed the moment. The breeze was cool and made my whole room smell fresh. It was lovely.

But then the dark clouds started rolling in again.

Of course I have to mention "Emma." It was awesome (so far)! I just loved it, and I'm so excited for next week. The casting was perfect. This Emma is exactly how I imagined her when I first read the book. Okay, so Mr. Knightley took a while to grow on me, but I think I rather like him. Mr. Woodhouse (Dumbledore without the long hair, beard, and half-moon spectacles! Shocking!), Harriet, Mr. Elton, and Miss Bates were also perfect. And everyone else fit nicely. I'm already thinking that I'm going to be ordering this from Amazon within a month. The music was nice, the scenery beautiful. The whole movie has a bright, high quality, unique look and feel (sort of like 2005 P&P) that I greatly prefer to the slightly drab, faded feel of some of the older Austen adaptations (1995 P&P and Emma). Not to mention it's sparkly and hilarious, just like the novel. My favorite quote so far?

"That man is so full of himself, I'm surprised he can stay on his horse!"

Until next time,
