24 Night……

   It was another beautifully sunny day today here on Blueberry Plains. The ice is melting and there is now just a little bit of snow left on our rooftop, but the banks are still tall and wide. Little by little the big white stuff is evaporating. Of course if that happens enough here in Maine, the next occurrence, will be another big storm!! I don’t ever mind that. After all….it’s winter isn’t it? Bring on the storms! The snow is so pretty to watch when falling.:)

   Tonight is 24 night. Every Monday my husband and I watch a show called 24. It stars, Keiffer Sutherland, and is a fast moving show. It’s one of those shows that seems to have the shortest commercials too. Before it is time to watch, you must take care of all your pre-24 business! Go to the bathroom….pop your popcorn….get your soda….make sure the animals have gone out already….find a comfortable place to sit and then you can batten down the hatches and begin to take it all in. For us, it is like watching the super bowl. If for some reason, you default on one or all of these pre-24 business items, don’t fret, just move fast and get right back to it! Yes, there is a knack to watching good television…..and there is not that much good tv out there anymore. For that matter, movies are beginning to get pretty weak too. We have watched 3 new movies in the past week and all three were very strange. They left both of us scratching our heads and wondering….who is  making these movies and what are they thinking?? Every once in a while you find a bit of a jewel in your choices. We found that a couple of weeks ago in a new Clint Eastwood movie called Grand Torino. A big surprise to us was how funny parts of it were! Here’s the trailer……

I hope it works. Check it out because I think you will love this new Eastwood classic, directed by him as well.

   Wow…..did I just write a review for a movie? Hah! I didn’t mean to do that but I guess I did!

   I cooked a homemade chicken pot pie today with leftover chicken we had yesterday. It smells great and that will be coupled with a fresh garden salad for our dinner tonight. Doesn’t that sound good? MMMMMMMM….good. You all enjoy your day now. Cheerio and will see you again tomorrow…..same place but probably a different time!:)mumbee

This is one of my mums from last year. The bees loved them!

I´ve misse all episodes af 24. It started when I didn´t have time to watch TV and after that i didn´t think it was any idea to watch the rest episodes. I think that You´re right when it comes to quality on films and tv nowdays. I seemes that they does these films and tv-shows for their own amusement, not for ours.
