The Sunday papers..

..went through a phase sometime ago of giving away a DVD every week.   One of the DVDs that came with the paper my husband bought was On Golden Pond, starring Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Filmed in 1981 amidst beautiful, beautiful scenery it is without doubt my favourite film. 

I'm probably enchanted with the film as much for its location as its storyline. That log cabin set on the shores of a lake has got it all for me.  Woods to wander in, birds to watch, a canoe to mess about on the water in, a porch to read a good book on, - yep, it's got the lot. 


Here's my DVD sitting on top of a pile of shirts that are waiting to be ironed.  I quite often watch it while I'm doing the ironing and in fact that's what I was doing just a little while ago and that's what my Simple Pleasure is this week.  No, not doing the ironing but watching On Golden Pond while I did it.

More Simple Pleasures can be found at Dayle's lovely blog, A Collection of This and That.

Ah ... a definite simple pleasure ... a good movie (which I find to be a rare thing these days) to help move the ironing along, and, actually, I sometimes find ironing quite relaxing. Does that make me a weird-o? :)

So happy you joined us at Simple Pleasures.

Kathleen, I replied to your comment on my blog, but wanted to make sure you got the message: Thanks for coming by. I know… the word “Waxahachie” appears to have no meaning or significance whatsoever, apart from being the name of this Texas town. ;)
Don't tell Dayle that I positively dread ironing!

I vaguely remember that movie - the scenery was special- I remember that, but not so much of the story line :-)
Anything that helps with the ironing is good!
I really love the photography on your blog. Your header is simply beautiful!!

What a wonderful simple pleasure. I really should watch that movie's been many years since I've seen it. And the way it helps the ironing along is a real bonus!
