Happy Hobbit Day!

The entire Shire is buzzing today, because it’s Hobbit Day! Not only that, but two lovely Hobbiton residents celebrate their birthday today.

I am of course referring to Messrs. Bilbo & Frodo Baggins, the uncle and nephew duo from Bag End who are entirely too adventurous for their own good.

Of course it’s been a while since Bilbo’s eleventy-first and Frodo’s thirty-third birthday. But that doesn’t stop me from decorating the Party Tree, gathering the entire Shire for the party – possibly with the exception of the Sackville-Bagginses, of course –  and bringing out keg after keg of Southfarting Ale from the Green Dragon.

Here’s a reminder of how hobbits celebrate:

Happy birthday, Bilbo & Frodo, my dear Bagginses!

If We Were Having Coffee… On September 19

Hello my lovelies!

Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share. How are you? Come on in and I make us a pot of coffee or tea, depending on what you prefer. It’s getting colder already and that even though summer is not over until the 23rd.

If we were having coffee today I’d tell you that I spent most of the week preparing for two courses at university. World Cultures and Communication & Human Relations. I’m hoping to get both done by the end of October.

Friday 56: Vol. 13

The Friday 56 is a blog hop by Freda’s Voice and the rules are simple:

  • Turn to the nearest book.
  • Open it on page 56.
  • Post a sentence or two.
  • Join the linky.
  • Go crazy on the linky.

“Little by little, people trickled out of the fields and drifted down the road. The red-toothed old ldy was back, as was the boy on the buffalo and all the other kids. We greeted each other like long-lost relatives – waving turned to handshakes turned to hugs all around.”
