 And what am I watching while knitting?

DH and I watched The Women (2008) on DVD,

This is a delightful remake of a great movie made in 1939!

Almost as good as the origional “The Women” (1939) here are some of the witty lines. I highly recommend both films!

Then we watched “The Holiday” another great movie I highly recommend!
