Movie Night Magic

Movie Night Magic

Dinner's done. The kitchen's clean.
We're wearing our comfy clothes:
stretchy pants, fuzzy slippers, old fleece shirt,
no bra - (Shh!! Nobody knows.)

The poodle with his chew toy
is snuggled against my knee.
Hubby has his glass of wine.
I cradle a cup of tea.

Pillows are plumped behind us
and afghans cuddle us near.
Popcorn's popped, lights are dimmed.
The volume's right, so we can hear.

It's cold and snowy outside.
We're holed up with no place to go.
Flickering light whirls us away.
Movie night magic! On with the show!

  1. What a cute poem! Does Max beg for a few pieces of popcorn?

    1. Thank you. Yes, sometimes he does, although, he does not have many teeth left so he sometimes has trouble chewing it!

  4. I get all cozy in my bed - feather-top mattress, flax blanket, downy pillows down to just a few comfy feathers - and the show begins. My mind edited your last line - Instead of On with the show! I read On with the snow! *laughing*

    1. That sounds lovely, Reenie. :-)
      As for the snow--it would be just fine with me if we don't get any more this year.

    1. Thank you, Julie. We rarely go to a theater to see movies anymore. They are so readily available elsewhere. It's much cheaper and cozier to watch them at home.

  6. Que Deus te dê um esplendoroso dia, com raios luminosos que te possam clarear os olhos para ver o quanto és importante. Deus Pai te fez assim: mulher importante e figura do próprio amor. Ele te moldou como uma rosa: forte e justa como os espinhos, linda e suave como as pétalas.

    FELIZ DIA INTERNACIONAL DAS MULHERES!
    Um doce abraço, Marie.

  7. Daisy, this is so cute! It would be a wonderful evening! We can't watch movies together; the Farmer can't hear well enough to know what they're saying and be able to keep up with the story, so he just falls asleep. :(

    1. Charlotte, it would be fun to watch a movie with you. :-)

      We can hear OK here, but occasionally one or the other of us falls asleep during a movie. That usually only happens if we have had a really long day though.

  8. What a perfect description of movie night! Love it. We usually enjoy a movie night every Saturday, and I added a new dimension to it a couple months ago. We used to entertain a lot, and I always prepared a bunch of really good hors d'oeuvres and special goodies to eat. We haven't had a party in ages, but I decided it was time I started preparing some of those goodies for US. So now, instead of a regular sit-down kinda meal on Saturdays, we kinda have a two-person party. It's really fun!

    Happy weekend!

  11. Movie night at your house sounds so cozy and sweet. Now i'm wondering what you saw. I could see the visual of it all but not the movie - so I'm going to say you saw Hundred Foot Journey (which is one of my favorite all time movies). Such a fun poem to read Daisy.p.s. if you haven't seen it - you might like it ....but then i hope you write a poem about it.

  12. Daisy I need a movie night here... it doesn't look like our Spring is happening anytime too soon, so I think I will pick out a few movies and enjoy them with Valentina... xox

    I really enjoy reading all your poetry and thoughts... you capture them so brilliantly with your words :)

  14. Perfect thing to do on a cold, snowy night. George and I have a routine that we try to do every night... From 6-7 (after dinner), we cuddle on the sofa and watch one of our DVR'd shows... Then we do it again from 9-10... It's my favorite time of the day.

    Love your poem and thoughts... Of course, NO BRA.... ha

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    And I can certainly relate to going braless for comfort!

    Always love your poems, Sweet Daisy! And love YOU! xoxo

  19. On with the snow, too. You're making the best of it. Sounds very fun. I only wear bras when I have to - whenever I leave my apt. Smiles.

  20. We've just had a movie magic last Sunday. I always love those times. We just added a bit of a junk food tho, just a bit of potato chips :)

  21. Thank you all for your comments. Sandy and Michael, the movie we watched that particular night was The Grand Budapest Hotel. I liked it OK, but my husband liked it more than I did. Sandy, I will have to look for Hundred Foot Journey. I've never seen that one.
