So, I present to you My Day in Photos:
Coffee T-discs. The only way I can start my day.
While sipping coffee, I post a pic to Flickr and checkout my contacts photos. Despite the fact that we just spent the entire night together, Sami wants to hang out with me during this morning time which also includes checking email and reading the blogs I follow.
Brewed up some Tea from Teavana to have iced in the afternoon. This mixture is Blueberry Bliss, Strawberry Slender and Monkey Picked Oolong.
Running errands including Target where I'm returning some earrings I found in a purse I bought.
So happy I had my camera in the car! Shot out the window on my way to the post office.
Tonight's dinner: grilled vegetables and an orange and avocado salad
More journal fun from today's entries for the Awe-Manac:
Today I get to...take a long afternoon nap.
List 3 things you're glad you did already this year:
1) Blogging everyday
2) Sticking to my exercise plan
3) re-adjusting my goals to be more realistic
Today's Prompt is to begin with this sentence: I have arrived home and there is a hobbit asleep in my bed.
I have arrived home and there is a hobbit asleep in my bed. I am not alarmed or frightened for I know much about hobbits. I can tell by the unusually large and hairy feet that this hobbit is most likely a Proudfoot. I poke him gently with my finger and he bolts right up out of the bed, brown hair in a mess of misbehaving curls. He barely reaches my hips but his cheeriness more than makes up for the lack of height.
"I'm Sancho Proudfoot". His voice was equally as jovial as his round face.
"Did you come looking for gold in my pantry?" I was in no mood for niceties as I was very aware of Sancho's reputation.
"Uh, why no!" He rocked back and forth, coins jingling in his pockets.
"How did you get here?"
He pointed to the book that lay open on my bedside table. I had been reading Fellowship of The Ring and was currently on the chapter "A Long-Expected Party".
"Novel Jumping? I thought that was just a myth!" I long suspected it to be true but now I had proof standing here in my bedroom.
"The book must be opened to a page a character is on. Once opened, we can jump through the book into your world. Of course we always risk getting stuck if the reader closes the book before we can return to it."
"Well, In any case it's very nice to meet you but you really must be going. I have no gold of course but I won't send you off empty handed." I told him to wait as I went to the kitchen, returning a minute later with a package from my refrigerator.
"Mushrooms! My favorite! I've never seen mushrooms this large before!"
"Portobellos" I said.
"Portobellos" he repeated.
And with that, Sancho lay a stubby little finger on the book. A swish of wind, a flash of silver light and he was gone.
I looked at the book. A thought suddenly struck me. Next time, I'll leave it open to a page devoted to Aragorn.
One last note: A very happy birthday wish to my favorite author in the whole wide world: J.R.R. Tolkien! :)
