Christmas Tree

We finally got a Christmas tree last night. It’s not installed yet, it’s in the garage, DH needs to look for the tree stand which is SOMEWHERE in the garage, and he has unwrapped presents in there for me, so I am not allowed to go into the garage (he says). I am at his…

NSA, Spying and Fox & Friends

[Thanks to DirecTivo! I paused and replayed until I got this soundbite written down just a little while ago.] Quote from Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends daytime morning program, between approx. 8:00-8:30 AM EST, Tuesday, December 20, 2005 “… I heard this soundbite from Senator Harry Reid, when he says: ‘We just killed the…

Narnia Soundtrack and Toys

We bought the soundtrack for “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” on Tuesday, the day it first came out … we have the CD/DVD version, the Collectors one. The DVD has pictures and “making of …” things, worth the price for Narnia lovers, waiting for the actual movie to come…

The Chronicles of Narnia: The First Movie

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
My rating: 5 out of 5

5 stars out of 5. Absolutely lovely. I say now, it was grand –even without a large dousing of “I say nows” in the movie (I need to see it again to count if there was one or more or any at all.)

I will say no more, just go see it! If you don’t know the stories, get the books and read the original first “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” or choose the audiobook of it and give it a listen (just over 4 hours long, and a jolly good reading by Michael York.) THEN go see the movie. I say this because to know the book is to love the movie oh so much more, to appreciate the depth, to soak up the glory.

About the Narnia movie

“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe” opens tomorrow. I first read the whole series in my early teen years … I think I was 13 in actuality, my first read-through, my Aunt & Uncle bought a boxed paperback set for me as a gift. I don’t know how many times…

Look into our window

My, our, daughter turned 7-years-old the end of November. We homeschool. I believe the foundation for learning begins with learning to love God, and to love family, and to particularly love learning (natural to some, not to others) … I believe it right to light their fires for learning whether it’s easier or harder, for…

Dreary Gray Days

The sky is dreary today. I have sat in front of the fireplace (with it trying to roar) and kept warm enough most all day, too warm at times so much that I fall asleep there. Which in the end just makes me cranky, I don’t take naps too well 😉 I just don’t feel…

Christmas Cards and

December has come. I’m trying to make room in the house for a Christmas Tree, not sure what type as of yet. I have to get decorations for it, so the less costliest thing is best. Big cut tree costs less than a growing live little tree. But little tree takes smaller decorations, little cut…
