This and That


Hello dear friends!  Just checking in.  It is a positively glorious day here on the South Shore.  I just got back from my stroll run and snapped a few photos.


Hope the neighbors don't think we went into the prophylactic business...



Look what I spotted on my walk today!




We saw this movie yesterday.  It is based on a true story and it was positively wonderful.  I couldn't help but walk out of the theater with a big ol' smile on my face.







A friend of mine, KDB, posted this on facebook.  Kristen Bell kills it as Mary Poppins!


Until next time,





Katie Clooney

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  4. Hi Katie, can't wait to see Lady in Gold. Being a huge Helen Mirren fan, my husband and I went to NYC last week to see her in The Audience. I adored it, but must confess my Mister did not, and there were more than few chins (mostly of the husband kind) resting on chests before the final curtain. It is entirely dialogue driven, almost always just 2 sitting actors on the stage, and no scenery changes. Unless like me, you're an Anglophile and Mirrenphile, you might want to think about another show. My husband was such a great sport, though he did curiously return from the men's room with the smell of Guinness on his breath. Happy spring! Your friend as always, Cathy in NJ.

    1. Hi Cathy! The Audience sounds like my kind of show. I think the Mister would be resting his chin as well. It's amazing how a little Guiness can give a person a second wind. Enjoy your week, Cathy, and thank you for the comment!

  6. We planned to see Lady in Gold this weekend, but too much going on. Glad to know that you highly recommend it - because it wasn't highly rated by critics on RottenTomatoes.com, although the regular audience enjoyed it.
    Will my poor bulbs pop up before June?
    Be sure that the roofers install the ice and water shield more than 3 feet up.

  8. Happy Sunday Katie! .......so funny with the dumpster. When we started construction and had our FIRST HONEYBUCKET;) it was the brunt of our jokes for awhile ~ and then it wasn't so funny anymore, ha.. Glad it's warming up for you finally!! Long winters are no fun. I need to see that Ryan Reynolds movie. I'm a fan:) xxL

  9. I have to say that even before I saw your comment about the dumpster, I thought, "oh my!" Shaking up the neighborhood!
    I love Kristen Bell and this video is hilarious!! New Mary Poppins songs for me to learn and sing to baby Andy! ;-)
