Over the weekend I finally decided to get my act together and watch all three Lord of the Rings movies for the first time. And I am glad that I did. So glad! ahh. I am not an emotional person (at all), but I admittedly cried at the end of this epic. Now, I have moved on to the books :) (really not my preferred way of doing things, but oh well). I favored Frodo, Sam, Pippin, and Merry the most, but most specifically Sam. Perhaps it is due to the fact that my best friend is boy crazy enough for the both of us, or maybe I'm just an abnormal highshcool girl, but I've never been one to favor romance. I mean, sure, it's all fine and dandy but, I am affected emotionally on a much greater scale when I see friendship scenes. Which were joyfully abundant in LotR. And so, while my brother and sister raved about how 'totally sweet' Legolas looked in that fight scene, I was stirred from the pure friendship in the tale. And that friendship is why Sam is my most favored character.
I love Sam because of how much he loves Frodo.
In other news, Jodi over at Ric Rac has got me into rag rugging. I'm sure the contamination wasn't on purpose, seeing as how she doesn't know me or the fact that I pour over her blog on a regular basis. And so, without further adieu, let me introduce you to my new rugbaby.
This little thing began yesterday, and is so far sized to fit in my teensy hand. But this little rugbaby is growing. And we are going places, this rug and I.
