An English Lady

September 6, 2010 Donna New

I don’t guess an English lady would be making bread. Her servant girl probably would. However, I made bread for me and then pretended to be an English lady, eating bread with honey and sipping tea with cream (non-dairy). It was a nice experience, bringing out the lady in me. I wish I was watching Pride and Prejudice or better yet living Pride and Prejudice…taking a walk through the gardens, reading poetry, having elegant discussions with my friends.

But, alas I live in 2010. Which, come to think of it, that isn’t so bad because I can read and I can enjoy the prayer garden at the church and I can have casual discussions with my friends on facebook. This time in the world is not all bad.

I’m grateful for honey and bread and tea. But I’m grateful for cell phones and texting and the spontaneous glimpses into the lives of my facebook friends. Without these things news would travel slowly if at all. Life would be less intimate. I wouldn’t get to watch children that are distant grow up, I wouldn’t hear the day to day lives of those I used to live close to, and I wouldn’t hear the fun responses to my posts.

I like being a lady with my tea and non-dairy creamer. I like spending time in the prayer garden with pansies, doves, plumbago, and butterflies. I enjoy reading about gardens and relationships. I’m not going to quit pretending to be an English lady but I definitely won’t give up technology. It’s way too much an integral part of my life.
