Cocoa and A Movie

It's raining here.  I love this weather and can't help going to the windows just to look out and admire all my rain.  I've finished today's work and now have plans to relax with a cup of cocoa and a favorite vintage movie.

I am not a fan of instant foods and usually do 'make from scratch'
 hot chocolate.  Encouraged by Baby when he was home at
 Christmas, I got Starbucks Hot Cocoa -just add to hot milk-
 and surprise! it's good.

The vintage movie I'm watching today is "I Know Where I'm Going!"  It is a sweet, easy to watch movie from 1945, starring Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesey.   It's fun to watch the storms in the movie and feel the thunder happening just outside my door.

Have you watched a black & white movie lately?  Some days I'm just in the mood - for the clothes, home interiors, clever lines, the happy endings. 

This Thursday I'm linking up with Suzanne at ColoradoLady  for a look at other folks' vintage favorites.

That sounds like a good cozy kind of day. I love to hear the rain. To me it is good napping weather but watching a good old movie is a good option, too. I read your solution about losing your socks and the remedy was a really good idea. I've done that but yours looks better than mine. I just put a couple stiches to mark mine. Just wanted to say hi since this is my first time to see your blog. I host a party called Your Cozy Home and would love to have you link up anything related to making a comfortable cozy home. Come on by if you can.-------- Shannon

So great to know that I can get Starbucks coco mix.
Hot coco always brings back special memories of my childhood and that of my own children.
Funny how comfort foods brings floods of memories.
Thanks for sharing, I am a new follower.

Hot cocoa, an old movie and rain - sounds good to me! I've not heard of this movie and I have not tried the cocoa mix yet. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great vintage hookup there ... you're always so creative in your vintage posts!! I like my hot cocoa the old fashioned way, too. But now I'll have to give the Starbucks version a try! En*joy* your day! :)

I have not been to any movie in so long, probably would not know how to act.

Sounds like a perfect day to me, a good movie and cocoa! We love old movies, I'll look for this one. :)

Happy VTT!

I love old westerns for the home interiors since my house was built in 1855. Sounds like a nice, relaxing afternoon.

Hope you weathered your recent storms - I heard about the rains in the Dallas area!

A good old movie is hard to beat!

I don't think I've ever seen that movie so I'll put it on my list! We love all of the old Alfred Hitchcock movies. Enjoy your week! ♥
