1. Christmas music ;-)

2. Outdoor holiday lights during a neighborhood stroll

3. Being amused by the illustrations in The Helpless Doorknob, a shuffled story by Edward Gorey


Slow week in regards to books and films which will be the case for most of this month as I am in the midst of a big home move. Looking forward to when things settle down again and all I need to worry about is which book to read next.

The Christmas Train (2017)
Director: Ron Oliver
Teleplay: Neal H. Dobrofsky, Tippi Dobrofsky

Based on book by: David Baldacci
-Hallmark, Drama, Romance, Christmas | imdb | my rating: 4

A cynical journalist decides to take a train from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles for Christmas to get inspiration for a story in honor of his late father. He gets to know the other passengers and runs into an old flame while aboard.

Love the writers on a train theme and orchestration of things.

  3. Walks to see Christmas lights and Edward Gorey. Yay!

    Ooh, man, hope your move goes well. I shudder at the thought of moving. :)

    1. Me too. Hope I don't have to do it again for long while.

  4. Snow Blind looks tempting...and I enjoyed The Christmas Train. Hallmark movies are now a regular part of my season.

  5. Christmas music is definitely on my happy lists too! I need to watch The Christmas Train too! I just love cheesy Christmas films!

  6. Snowblind makes me cold just looking at it! Have a great week.

  7. Always lovely to enjoy Christmas music. The Helpless Doorknob looks like a cute idea! (I had to go see what a shuffled story was.) Hope your packing goes well for your move.
