My unexpected arrival & Mr. Beautiful


I experimented this week with not taking my daily Prilosec and only taking another OTC when I felt I needed it for my acid reflux.

The experiment did not go well. *sigh* I couldn’t get to sleep until after 4 a.m. this morning and I’ve had considerable discomfort today.  I think I will just have to deal with the possible consequences of long-term use of Prilosec and hope for the best. Sleep deprivation can’t be too good for a body, either.

Anyway, I’ve been messing about with images of Mr. A again. Today I also got my Hobbit annual from Gloucester! I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived this early. It’s chockful of activities, which I admit I am tempted to do–I loved activity books as a child. I used to get a huge one before Christmas each year, filled with connect-the-dots, search-a-word puzzles, riddles, crafts, coloring pages and more. I had the most fun with those books.

However, I shall resist marring the thick, glossy pages of this lovely book.

I admit I have already looked at the pictures of Thorin several times. All I can say, is WOW. The “strong and fearless fighter” has me completely won over. I’d follow this guy anywhere.

But then again, I find his CReAtor endlessly inspiring, magnetic and–beautiful.

  1. That new photo floored me too. My copy of the annual should arrive any day now, I’m really looking forward to seeing it properly. 🙂

    • It’s stunning, isn’t it? My gosh, the intensity that man can project in a still photo. I actually did do some of the book’s puzzles and games–I didn’t write in the book, but I worked through them in my head. 😉 And you will learn some fun facts about each of the dwarves in Thorin’s company.

  2. I must confess I haven’t ordered this one, I’ll probably wait until next month because I’ve splashed out on the LoTN /and 2 RH audiobooks…But it sure sound awesome! How did Servetus put it? We will get merchandised out of our brains or something like that..? 🙂
