The Hobbit is coming, The Hobbit is coming...

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Hey! Guess what...When I went to see The Avengers movie this week, they had a great preview for The Hobbit, Unexpected Journey movie. The previews were great. It will be a wonderful addition to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Once again we will be leaving the shire to embark on a hero's journey. In my area, The Hobbit is supposed to start showing in mid-December. What a joy to look forward to. Do a search on The Hobbit and enjoy the trailers. I guarantee it will make you smile in anticipation.

BTW, The Avengers was a fun, summer, save-the-world-against-all-odds kind of movie. My favorite character in this movie was the Black Widow. She was exceptionally good at interogations! :-))

Have a great Memorial Day weekend...even if it's not Memorial Day where you are.

This is what we did over several days...long days.

Sunday, May 20, 2012

We prepped the deck. We stained the deck. It took two of us more than 42 hours to accomplish. The rains have held off. No fog or marine layer either. So, if we're lucky, the stain is cured and happy, and ready for the rains to come starting tomorrow.











Then we decided to deadhead the Rhodie border. We do it after every year's show. Lots of people come by every Spring just to see it. It is so beautiful, but doesn't last very long. We think that the deadheading actually makes the Rhodies bloom even more. We must be crazy. It takes the two of us 16 + hours to get the job done. A couple of neighbors joined in. That really helped.





I'm going to rest up tomorrow! Maybe even the day after tomorrow.

I so enjoy...

Sunday, May 06, 2012

the Walk to Rivendell Challenge. I enjoy it because it is based on JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. I love that we can mark our progress with paragraphs of where we are on our "Walk to Rivendell." I really love walking with the Hobbits, Aragon, Frodo, and the others. I especially love the Sparkpeople walkers who have joined in on their own journeys.

If you want to check it out, go to the Challenges on the Message Boards under the COMMUNITY tab and do a search on Walk to Rivendell. Jump in and start walking!

This is a photo I came across this evening when I did a search on Tolkien. This is where he and his wife are buried. I think that it is a lovely plot, cheerful, full of flowers and fit for the father of the Hobbits.



Enjoy the journey.

I have a Spring cold...

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Yikes. Things were going so well and now I've hit the wall of achy, sneezy, runny nose, can't sleep, sore throat blues. I'm drinking fluids, soups, taking extra C, using a blackberry extract 4 x a day, and drinking hot water with lemon and healthy honey. Wish me well. Take care of yourselves. It's just a matter of time before I'm back to a healthier me!

    Sorry you have a spring cold. you certainly are doing a lot of good things to heal it. I might add , get plenty of rest, I know you said you can't sleep, but perhaps just relaxing can help.
Hope to see your blog soon that your cold is gone.
