An AMAZON Delivery

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends here we sit on the hump of the week - with one little old weekend between us and Thanksgiving!!  I now have a written daily schedule of things I want to accomplish before next Tuesday - I like to make a list of a lot of little projects which keeps them from turning into just one big killer day of drudgery.  Tonight's activity will be to clean out and scrub down the refrigerator - such a fun task!!  I put this up first so that it will have lots of room for next week.

Last night - or I should say yesterday the mail brought me an AMAZON purchase - I got the new "Deathly Hallows, Part II


It was really great and the BluRay picture is top notch.  I watched it through once and then started to watch it again in  "Maximum Movie Mode" - a special feature that has deleted scenes and extra commentary about the film as it plays.  I really enjoyed all the back stuff.  

I also picked up a copy of the new BluRay release of an old favorite of mine "Scrooge" - 1970 - starring Albert Finney.  The picture transfer is so much better than the old DVD release and the sound quality is also top notch!!!


This film is the musical version of the story and although not as faithful to the original as other versions... it is one of my top 5 Favorite Christmas films!!  Here is a great clip of the opening titles of the film with a gorgeous piece of music written by Leslie Bricusse, who BTW wrote all the music for the film... enjoy

I had my SAL out and put about 4 stitches into it as I watched these films.  I got really caught up in the movies last night!!  So no snaps of that today!!

Take care,

I'm so jealous. I have requested all the Harry Potter movies on DVD for Christmas. Then I will have a movie marathon with all of them. They are my favorite, next to the Toy Story movies.

The final HP is sensational isn't it? I'm not surprised you didn't manage to get any stitching done while it was on
