What if you watched these movies?

August is here...
Katie is visiting Wesleyan University in Conn.
She loves it.  It is a perfect fit for her.
Even more perfect if she gets accepted.
Her east coast Glyman family has been taking the best care of her. I am so grateful.
Christine, Emma and Delaney and Katie will go to Mystic ( a town on the ocean) today!
They will have nice weather for it...
It is currently 55 degrees here in Wisconsin.
I don't mind that for a day or two in the summer,
it's refreshing.  And I love opening the window and sleeping with fresh air
after a long spell of being all closed up.




Do you need a movie to watch?

Here are two that come to mind that I like a lot.
One I've never mentioned before and an older favorite.



A very sweet romantic comedy.
I have a little crush on Zoe Kazan.  (She is also in this summer's The Big Sick.
You know, the one I was watching when I spilled all that popcorn butter on myself.)
Yeah.  I want popcorn now.

Anyway.  There is something about What if... that makes me keep watching it.
I think I've seen it four times in a year.
The music is sweet...I think that might be part of it.






And a few weeks ago I MADE Emma and her roommate watch ON GOLDEN POND with me.
This movie is hilarious to me and sweet and touching.  I love it.
I remember making the kids all watch it with us...and Patrick Jr. said,
why are we watching this?

Maybe you have to be over 50.
Maybe you have to be married to a beloved  "old poop".
I'm not exactly sure...
but this movie speaks to me like no other.


Watch On Golden Pond.  
Tell me what you think.
And watch What if... too!

Love ya.

  1. Mystic! Love the movie Mystic Pizza that takes place there. :)

    What If is one of my and Molly's favorites. And love the emotional On Golden Pond. It speaks to me more now than at the age I originally saw it.

  2. I love "On Golden Pond" - one of my all-time favorites! In fact, we are getting ready to head out for a camping trip and it is in our camper for just in case it rains! I would love to live on a lake in the north and hear the loons.

  3. That is wonderful that Katie found a perfect fit! I will be praying she gets accepted, that is a ways from home. I haven't seen, "What If" and it has been many years since watching "On Golden Pond". We will have to hunt them down. Thanks, Donna!

    Hope this works, we have a new computer!
    I told my hubby, "We are living On Golden Pond." Wow, did I think Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn were old when we first saw that movie. ;-) Love and prayers, jep

    I have a feeling that our dear Miz Boo is busy with subbing work or getting Katie ready for school. I also check in often and even when I could not write, have been keeping you each one in my prayers. Love and prayers to all, jep
