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.

A Masterpiece of a Man


Yeah, I’ve been Photoshopping again with my favorite subject. Just ate supper and fingers crossed it doesn’t tear up my stomach. I have far too many conditions with acronyms, I have decided: IBS, FMS,MPS, GERD, RLS . . . and my own self-diagnosed condition, TIS (Technologically Impaired Syndrome).  FYI, all those letters stand for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fybromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Restless Legs Syndrome. No WONDER I need to be distracted ( and inspired and amazed and delighted and starstruck) by Richard Armitage. 😉
