Sweetness and Light

Just like any day, there's all kinds of bad news, but today I'm ignoring it.

The Hobbit trailer is out- ignore the anal retentive reviewer:

Here's a grumpy smile:

Sweet with an edge:

Relax and enjoy as much as possible. Don't let the stress carry the day!

All our busyness and frantic bustling is our little gift to our guests....even though they may not notice that we got that spider web out of the corner. What doesn't get done just doesn't get done..Christmas will come anyway.

Exactly, Lawless. What doesn't get done either gets planned better next time or doesn't matter. There's a point where you say, "That's fine." and it is. It's not gonna stop anything from happening.

Aha and speaking of J.R.R. Tolkien, he spent many an hour writing in a local pub in Leek known as 'The Quiet Woman'. And no, I'm not going to attempt some joke about the name of the pub :)
Anyway, I have been led to believe that this town of Leek was partly the inspiration behind The Hobbit. Judging by some of the locals I know, I'm not surprised!
And here's to a stress-free, peaceful day to you, dear Laura.
In kindness, Gary

Gary- We both live in Shires then! You can't beat a good Hobbit. :)
I hope all is calm and bright in your Hobbiton. It is here.
with twinkly smiles,
Laura
