Strike Up The Band ♪

Yesterday was a rainy day. My hubby and I got caught in the rain and we were pretty much soaked. Not a very good combo being still in the 30's around here. Plus my dear hubby is still sick. But anyway he had to go back to work.
So what did I do? I made me some hot tea, grabbed an afghan and watched an old movie. I love old movies. The one I watched was Strike Up The Band. It was filmed in 1940. It had Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in it. It was a really good movie with all of life's lessons. I truly enjoyed it. Here is a clip of it that took place in the beginning of the movie.
Don't you just love Judy Garland's eyes? She's got the most beautiful eyes. I even think there prettier than Betty Davis' eyes. Betty Davis' eyes are kind of bugged out. And Mickey Rooney just had me laughing in some parts of the movie. He was so funny.
I just snuggled up with a warm cup of tea and enjoyed my movie. I even caught myself dozing off for a few seconds here and there. But I really enjoyed myself. Everyone was at school and work so the house was nice an quiet. =)


Instead of grabbing a cookie or something, I opted for some fresh raspberries. I ♥ raspberries. I think because we had a raspberry shrub in our backyard growing up and my Mom would bring some in for us to eat. They were so good. And there one of my favorite's to this day. ♥

Have a nice day.

    That sounds like a fun time. We went to church and my son brought many friends. Hubby needed help cutting down a tree so part of the deal was I cook biscuits and chocolate gravy for all.Not a bad trade.

  3. It's always nice to have a day or two to yourself.

    Have a great day, Denise

    I ♥ raspberries too.. they use to grow wild on the hill side where I grew up.
    Glad you got to rest a bit and hope you and your hub don't get sick from getting wet.

  5. I hope your husband feels better soon. That's awful he had to go to work sick :( Too bad he couldn't have stayed home with you cuddling under the afghan :) That's the perfect way to spend a rainy day ♥

  6. I love the old movies. Judy Garland was a favorite of mine. She could really belt out a song. It was a good day for you to curl up with a cup of tea and watch a good old movie.
