Movies I've Watched Recently || T A G

I was tagged by Daminika for the Movies I've Watched Recently Tag.
So here we go.
M o v i e s   I' v e   m o s t   r e c e n t l y   w a t c h e d: 

Blue Bloods
For a modern TV show this is pretty 'clean' and 'conservative'.
So far I've watched seasons 1-5 
I was very disappointed tho to find they have made quite a few episodes
promoting gays.

The Magnificent Seven 1960

The Magnificent Seven 2016

I personally liked this remake better
than the original which is weird for me. :P

The Finest Hours

This movie was ok for a one time movie,
but not worth the money to buy.


Little Women 1933

Love this movie!

well hope you all enjoyed!

Far Away Places//Bing Crosby Song


Far away places
with strange sounding names
Far away over the sea

Those far away places
with the strange sounding names are
Calling me
Goin' to China or maybe Siam
I wanna see for myself
Those far away places
I've been reading about in a
Book that I took from a shelf
I start getting' restless whenever
I hear the whistle of a train
I pray for the day I can get underway
And look for those castles in Spain
They call me a dreamer
Well maybe I am
But I know that I'm
burning to see those
Far away places with
the strange sounding names
Calling, calling me

Stuck At Home//Whooping Cough//Life

Me this morning lol

Saturday I went along with Felicity and the rest of the bridal party dress shopping! I had fun and even shed a tear when I saw Felicity in a wedding gown and veil! That was a bittersweet moment.
It was a reminder of how fast things change and with something new there's always a goodbye of some sort.

Saturday night I stayed up late watching Answers in Genesis and listening to Ken Ham. I was really looking forward to going to church in the morning. I got up and showered as usual and was getting ready for church when Molly told us that August had/has whooping cough and that we couldn't leave the house. I was so disappointed that we had to miss Sunday services. We (the whole house) are on an antibiotic for whooping cough and cant leave the house for at least five days. So needless to say I've got a lot of time on my hands since we cant go to work. I have been catching up on a lot of reading and "studying" though I'm not in any classes I've been reading and watching a lot of science, astronomy and history (of the space age and all the different types of crafts they have made or attempted to make) books and movies and trying to catch up on years of schooling I've missed in science. Though there's a lot of different subjects like math that goes along with all that stuff also.

I woke up around 6:30 this morning due to coughing, I think I have whooping cough also. :(
I have coughing fits around bedtime and in the mornings.
Even though I woke up from coughing I wasn't feeling too bad and I had a relaxing quiet morning with a cup of coffee and friends snapping me on snap-chat, not to mention my sisters texting in the "sister group". :) Its almost lunchtime now and I'm still in my pajamas!
Probably going to spend the afternoon cleaning and organizing our bedroom. We are also making supper tonight so got to think about that.

I guess I have nothing else to say. I'll leave you with a few quotes. ;)
