Hobbit Day!

Hullo my Happy Hobbits!

I hope you are having a marvelous day! I would love to hear what you do today! Please do tell!

Do you plan to stay at home? 

Or shall you go on an adventure? 

I don't know what I shall do yet... I suppose it depends on who may knock on my door today...
For now, I shall leave you with a quote from one of my all time favorite books....

The Hobbit
There and Back Again

With that he put on Bilbo a small coat of mail, wrought for some young elf-prince long ago. It was of silver-steel, which the elves call mithril, and with it went a belt of pearls and crystals. A light helm of figured leather, strengthened beneath with hoops of steel, and studded about the brim with white gems, was set upon the hobbit's head.
"I feel Magnificent," he thought; "but I expect I look rather absurd. How they would laugh on the Hill at home! Still I wish there was a looking-glass handy!"

I laughed so hard when I got to this part. I love Bilbo's thoughts.

"Good-bye and good luck, wherever you fare! If ever you are passing my way, don't wait to knock! Tea is at four; but any of you are welcome at any time!"
