If we were having coffee today, we’d be snuggled inside my house if you could get here. The roads are in bad shape and everyone is being discouraged from leaving their home. Yup, it’s snowing again. It’s late afternoon and I haven’t done anything but sit by the window watching the snow and offered my grandson food and drink. He just left so now I am having a warm egg nog, nothing “good” in it.

Last night my six year old grandson, Anderson, came over for another Nana and Anderson special night. We watched the third Harry Potter movie (Prisoner Of Azkiban), ate junk food, drank soda, and stayed up late, well beyond late. He loves doing that, just him and me. He spent the night and slept in. I was up earlier, watching the snow and drinking my first three cups of coffee. When he got up, he came to the living room, snuggled up on the couch with my Kindle tablet, and played Minecraft Pocket Edition until his dad and his little brother walked over here in the snow to get him, three hours later!

As a follow up to last week…I found it! Now if you didn’t read last week, you will have to! Hee hee! Also, I will say that I am enjoying tarot readings. I still need a lot of clients but I did get a couple more this week. If you know anyone, send them my way!

I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I am going to pay the rent beyond April. I haven’t figured it out yet. A couple of nights ago I stayed up for hours and hours researching and making a list of simple, cheap, crafts I can make that are unique enough that I could sell them at craft fairs or weekly farmers markets in the area. I think I have at least five I can do with little investment of money because they use stuff I already have (wine corks, wine bottles, bottle caps, etc.). The only problem now is that there aren’t any of those sales opportunities until April at the earliest!

I’m trying to keep my spirits up. Some days it is more difficult than others. Yesterday, my dad would have been 87. And today is the anniversary of the death of a very close friend and although she died in 1968, it’s still tragic, partly because it was the first time I had someone close to me die. I was twelve years old.

Okay, your turn! What are you reading? What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? What was the last movie you stayed up late watching? Please do tell!

I have been wanting to watch the Harry Potter movies to Anderson. Well, not just watch but introduce. He’s 6 and hasn’t seen any of them. I had told him about it a couple of weeks ago and we decided one day he would come without his brother and watch. Just the two of us. With the lights out and popcorn and candy.

Well, last night his brother fell asleep in the car on the way back from dinner. They stopped by to drop off  a couple of things and I asked Anderson if he wanted to have our special movie night. He said yes so we did it!

He really enjoyed the movie but he didn’t want me to leave his side, even for a minute. When he had to go to the bathroom, we paused it and I had to go with him. It was kinda cute. He kept saying “this is soooo cool!” And having it on a blu ray was neat because we could easily stop it and I could explain what was going on if necessary. Now he wants to watch the second one tonight. I told him maybe on the weekend!

So that’s my smile this week. I got to introduce a character and a whole series of movies to Anderson. My kids loved them and I thought he would, too. I was right! Here’s to imagination, magic, wonder, and lots more special movie nights with Anderson!
