I also want to tell you about a movie a friend of mine told me about named Remember. It was a very good movie from start to finish, but the ending? WOW! Shocked me more than any movie I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of movies. I paused the tv and just sat and stared at it for a while with bug eyes and mouth open! If you watch it please let me know what you thought

A Favorite Bible Verse…
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:37-40

From the camera…

I miss the mountains etc. where I used to live

You sure don’t see anything like this in Florida

  1. Nice image, I remember those truck ramps on one of our trips when we lived in Oregon. I just placed a hold on the movie, Remember. It does sound interesting.
    Have a great day.

  2. I thought I’d seen most of Diane Keaton’s movies but that one doesn’t look familiar.

    You’re doing great with your steps!

    My husband’s from the Shenandoah Valley so I’m very familiar with runaway truck ramps. Thankfully, I’ve never seen a truck have to use one.

  3. I don’t think I’ve seen And So It Goes. Sounds like something I would like. Love the picture. Hope you have a great week!

    • I found And So It Goes by accident and so glad I decided to watch it. The ending of Remember was such a shock, but the best ending ever!

  4. If And So It Goes gives good feelings, I’m going to look for it. Movie makers need to give us something that gives good feelings during this bleak time, I think. Are you listening, movie makers?

    I’d certainly like to find a mood-boosting book, too, now that I think about it. I bet Hidden Figures is a positive story.

    No, nothing but flatland around the beachy parts of the world. It would be nice to put a few mountains with the ocean.

    I hope you have a great week!

    • And So It Goes was very good, and I thought it gave me good feelings so I hope if you watch it, it does you too.

      Hidden Figures is such a positive story! It’s got a lot of techy info but is really good.

      I used to live in California and there were mountains near some of the beaches, but I’ve never seen that in the east.

      Thanks Deb, I hope you have a great week too!

  5. That seems like nice weather. Have a wonderful week and enjoy that Saturday off!

    Anne – Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post   

    • Our weather is up and down this time of the year but it’s never really hot or cold which I like. Soon it will be very hot and humid. I like the hot ok but not when the humidity is very high.

  6. Hidden Figures is such an interesting book, I hope you enjoy it!

  7. Let me know how you like the book Hidden Figures, the movie was excellent and I’d recommend it.
    Love that runaway truck photo! Haven’t seen one of those since my Pennsylvania days or vacation to the North Carolina mountains.

    Nice meal plans!

    • I’m liking the book very much, it’s full of info the movie left out, of course.

      My daughter in law grew up in Pittsburgh and they go back once or twice a year.

      I’ve got the pork loin and bbq sauce in the slow cooker today 🙂

  8. I’d like to read Hidden Figures, but I’ll probably get to the movie sooner.
    I always recommend a meat thermos to people who cook, I use mine all the time.

    Wishing you a great reading week

    • I saw the movie first which I seldom do, the book is always much more in depth.

      I always use a thermometer. I had a friend who got food poisoning and it was awful, so I want to make sure everything I make is the right temp.

      Have a great week!

  9. Thank you! That recipe sounds like the pea salad I used to get from Bashas grocery store in Arizona that I loved so much. Printed it out.

  10. Okay, I’m intrigued by Remember. I’ve added it to my Netflix list.
    Have a good week!

  11. Hidden Figures is on my TBR. It sounds so fascinating. That truck ramp is crazy. We don’t have them here but I’ve seen them in the mountains in Tennessee. I’m very glad I’ve never seen anyone have to use it!

    • I’ve seen quite a few trucks, and even a few cars use them. It would be so scary to be going down a mountain and have your brakes go out!

  12. I remember those signs for runaway truck ramps–haven’t thought of those in years! Enjoy your Saturday off!
