We had a nice, relaxing holiday weekend. Honey was still recuperating from his Plague, so not much was done. He did have a small to do list, and as far as I know, he accomplished it.
Every year we like to watch a movie that has something to do with Christmas as our Introduction to the Christmas Season movie.. Sometimes it’s a full on Christmas movie, sometimes Christmas is just in it. Such as Die Hard, which takes place on Christmas Eve, or You’ve Got Mail, that has a couple holiday scenes. The Ab-Cat is still protesting that one, but we quite enjoyed it!
This year we decided on an oldie but a goodie, While You Were Sleeping from 1995. It takes place over Christmas and New Years, and is a sweet romantic comedy.
When we were at a restaurant, googling prospective movie choices, two popped up that interested me. The first had a very high rating and was called Holiday Inn. I have to say that I have never heard of it!
And Miracle on 43th Street, which I am sorry to say, I have never seen! I don’t know how I missed the original OR the remake, which was from our children’s generation, but alas, I have. Of course, I guess it’s not that unusual considering I never saw It’s a Wonderful Life until I was a full grown person!
I know Natalie Wood was the little girl here.
And Mara Wilson, otherwise forever known in our family as Matilda, was the child in this one.
We may catch them as well!
Mousey and I did watch White Christmas, which we have seen a couple of times before. I know it is much beloved, but have to say the corn level is HIGH. Some of those song and dance numbers? Sheesh! We were mesmerized by the thin sister and her arm-like, deer legs! Or horrified.
I did a small smackeral of decorating, it gets less and less every year. I am ok with that.
The lighted garland is new and I am loving it!
While I was out looking for the pre-lit garland, I took the opportunity to gather a few little things, Christmas gifts for my BSF Admin gals. The last class day, December 14, will be here in a wink, and I don’t want to be caught unawares!
We spent the rest of the time getting up to date with our Bible study lessons and catching up on some lost sleep. Oh, and Honey and I tried out a new show on Netflix called Longmire. We are only 2 episodes in, so too soon to tell if it will be a keeper.
And that was the weekend that was.
