To start this FFF off , I just want to mention that I have not been able to comment of some of the participant's posts. Brenda, I am having a heck of time with disqus and it won't let me in no way, no how that I've tried. But just know that I come and read and enjoy your post each week! Joyful Reader and Paula, I have to tell you that I tried several times to comment on FFF and it wouldn't take my comment. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. But I just wanted you to know I wasn't ignoring you!
I feel much better knowing I've been able to tell you.
So onto finding my favorite five blessings from the week.
1. and 2. Movie Date with Hubby. Saturday, on the spur of the moment we decided we wanted to see a show and chose Saving Mr. Banks. The first favorite was the movie being a nice surprise. I really enjoyed it. Mary Poppins has always been a favorite movie since childhood so I was interested on this take on how the movie was made with the participation of the very particular author. I like the premise of the show which showed Disney courting P.L. Travers for her permission to make the movie and while she was in on the script writing they showed flashbacks to her childhood. I will never watch Mary Poppins in quite the same way again. Of course when I came home I had to google how much of the show was actually fact and how much was Hollywoodized. Which was interesting in and of itself.
And of course the best part was sharing the movie and popcorn with my Sweetheart! Love our dates.
