Tea and a Read - October Edition

Hi everyone!
Today we decorated for fall, so now it smells like autumn and our whole downstairs is mostly orange!;)
 
I thought I would share with you all what I'm drinking and reading today---
Okay, let's start with what I'm drinking.:)
I am drinking Madagascar Vanilla African Red Herbal Tea. It's a tea that is mellowly flavored, yet still super delicious and creamy (when you add milk, like I do!;))
Here's the little cover! Oh, look at the lion sitting down for a cup of tea. Look, he doesn't even want to eat those zebras back there because he likes his tea better! That's my kind of lion!XD
Now! For what I am reading!
I was exploring my book cases for some book to read (after I finished the second book in the Unwanteds series, just in case you wanted to know which book I finished!;P), I set my eyes on this beautiful one, and I sat down in my sister's closet (where most of our books are) and began to look through it. I ended up deciding I would try reading Pride and Prejudice and see how it goes!;)
The book contains four books that Jane Austen has made and Pride and Prejudice is the second one.:) The book contains the following: Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion as well as Pride and Prejudice.:)
I tried reading Sense and Sensibility a couple years ago and I was so lost and I got around page ten and had to stop because I couldn't keep asking my mom what words meant.XD But I haven't came across any words I needed help on or thought were important enough to look up now!:)
My oldest sister says that there is a lot of humor in these books that when you're young you'll miss, and I see that, but I am also super happy because I am actually getting some of the humor in it already! Uh oh....Am I growing up? O.O
 
*hides under a blanket and sings every My Little Pony song and Barbie song she can think of*
 
Well, anywho, I am really excited to read this because a lot of people like the book and I really love the movie so I thought I would try it out.:)
 
Oh! And here's a little decoration we have around our house. Isn't he so cute?:)

  2. Your tea and a read sound very cozy! I've read Pride and Prejudice, but I think my favorite Austen novel is Sense and Sensibility...Marianne and Elinor remind me of Anna and Elsa. : D
