I have told you a lot about myself in several of my posts. I have written about my love of decorating, my family, my job, my home, my collections, and my house being in Country Sampler Magazine. I thought it might be interesting, and help you to get to know me a little better if I shared with you five things that make me smile when ever I think about them. So here they are :
#1 Doris Day
Who doesn't like Doris Day??? She is so sweet and cute. She has a great voice and she made some wonderful movies. Her movies depict a simpler time. I love all of the Doris Day and Rock Hudson movies. We have several of her records, and I listen to them over and over again. She is also on my ipod. I fall asleep listening to her every night.
#2 The Wizard of Oz
I first saw The Wizard of Oz when I was very young. Remember when it was only on once a year? It was an event. It makes me sad that kids today do not have that type of anticipated event in their lives. They can watch the movie any time they want. I remember being so excited when the commercials would start coming on, and counting the days until it was on. I would spend the weeks leading up to the airing drawing pictures and playing Wizard of Oz. I got the Wizard of Oz dolls when I was about three. I loved those dolls and played with them all the time. Over the years, the dolls became worn out, broke, or were lost. I always wished I could have them back. A few years ago, Jeff found them for me on ebay. It was like being a kid again and I will cherish them always.
#3 All My Children
I have been a huge All My Children fan since I was five years old. I have watched it on and off for 32 years now. There is something comforting about watching a soap for that long. You feel like you know the characters, and you are invested in the lives. I Tivo it everyday. I am not as bad a my great-grandma was. She used to pray for her soap characters...lol!
#4 White Christmas
I love all old movies, but one of my favorites is White Christmas. I could watch it all year long. I love the dancing and the singing. This past Christmas we saw the Broadway musical of White Christmas. It was very good and I enjoyed it very much
#5 The book A Thousand Acres
I love to read and one of my favorite books is A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley. It is about a family who lives on a farm. The subject matter is depressing, but the idea of living on a farm in Iowa has always appealed to me, so thinking about that makes me smile.
I hope you enjoyed reading about what makes me smile. I enjoyed thinking about all of them. I hope that you have things in your life that make you smile and remember an event from your childhood. Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate it more than I can say. I hope you are all having a relaxing evening, and that you have discovered your "warm puppy" today.
