Do you have a favorite holiday movie? I forgot to turn off the tv in the bedroom and as I was walking into my sewing room to get the camera heard the theme song for “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” — okay not your usual holiday family favorite perhaps but those old movies with the not so special “special effects” always make me laugh – I love them. But I have that one on dvd so will watch it later and turned it off. The tv in the living room has “Christmas Carol, The Movie” — I always find it funny when in the title they have to specific it’s “the movie.” It’s an animated one and I’m actually much more fond of the “real people” versions of Christmas Carol and probably have 5 or 6 different versions of it among my holiday dvds (tho I do like the Jim Carey animated version). But this version I don’t think I’ve ever seen so it wins for this morning’s viewing.
I took the morning off work (our office is open until noon) because my bosses weren’t going to be there and my normal bus doesn’t run on the holidays so I would have to putz around waiting in the cold and transferring buses — too cold for that and too much bother. LOL Right now it’s currently minus twelve degrees. I opened up the door to take some photos and brrrr jammies and shawl were a bit chilly to be wearing next to the open doorway. I prefer my winter temps to be about 20-25 degrees thank you very much Mother Nature so could you please do something about this! Glad I don’t have to stand on the corner waiting for a bus today or tomorrow!
But isn’t it pretty outside! We finally have sunshine which it seems like we haven’t seen in many many days. That blue sky behind the snow-covered trees outside my door is so pretty.
I do love my little view of the woods during the winter. There are a few red cardinals flitting among the trees this a.m., as well as a few squirrels, so I quickly topped off the bird feeder to keep the birds happy in case they come to visit.
