The weather app on my phone says it's 46 degrees tonight, but it feels much colder. Tonight, Jilda cooked a dish that her mother used to make. It's one of my favorites.
We had leftover roast from yesterday, so she peeled some red potatoes, sliced some onions, along with some other ingredients and cooked it on a skillet on the stove tonight.
As she worked, I took the peels out on the deck to put them in our compost bucket. I stood there for a moment, and I could hear wind in the trees. I usually only hear that rustling sound when rain is on the way.
A chill crept up my spine, so I decided to cut my weather observation short, but I thought as I went back inside that it feels much colder than 46.
When I flipped on the weather, a band of rain the width of Mississippi is headed our way and will be here by midnight.
We watched another Christmas movie tonight as we dined. We save our favorite Christmas movies until the week of Christmas. A Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life, and The Bishop's Wife are on our list.
Yes, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

    Those are my 3 favorite Christmas movies, too!!

  2. It is snowing and cold here tonight, Rick. We have had a string of days where we barely got above zero degrees. MUCH too cold for me. I have never seen The Bishop's Wife- but I love both of the other movies. xo Diana

  3. We love those movies as well! I think they are favorites for many people. We have a few others we look forward to seeing during the holidays.

    We are suppose to be getting snow tonight and our temperatures are quite a bit lower than yours. Hitting 40 degrees would be a heat wave here. Oh well...that's winter!

  4. Beautiful post...
    What time is supper?

  5. You need to add "Elf" to your Christmas movie list Rick!!

  6. Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life are two of my favorite movies, I have them taped on the DVR... we are watching them Christmas evenings... and whoa it is cold her today :)

  7. Sounds like your the better weather man than Glad you're enjoying the movies and all the fun stuff around your house.

  8. Actually I just saw Christmas in Connecticut for the first time, absolutely loved it, Barb Stanwyck was quite the sassy career woman in it!

  9. I love all these movies...I would also add "A Christmas carol" to your list - the one starring Patrick Stewart. It is my ultimate favourite seasonal movie! :)

  10. Wow, you make it all so magical! It's so wonderful that the two of you enjoy the Christmas classics together, and your dinner sounds yummy!
    Have you ever seen Bill Murray's "Scrooged"?

  11. I love those movies too! We are feeling very Christmasy here up north!

  12. Sounds like a good evening! We got the same rain but the temps made it snow for your snowman! We're in Chicago and it's 5de. tonight. My favorite Christmas movies are pretty similar to your list. Throw in "Christmas in Connecticut" and pass the popcorn please!
