“Before the house-maid had lit the fire the next day, or the sun gained any power over the cold, gloomy morning in January, Marianne, only half dressed, was kneeling against one of the window-seats for the sake of all the little light she could command from it, and writing as fast as a continual flow of tears would permit her.”
~~ Jane Austen, ‘Sense and Sensibility’
OK, it wasn’t the nicest of mornings this morning, but at least the temperature was above 20 degrees F. I’ll take it.
When I told Wussy that it was warm outside, however, he declared that to be FakeNews & refused to come out from under the covers.
