Today is the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Hobbit Second Breakfast promoted a celebration that apparently caught on in the UK and America, and I know of one family in New Zealand who participated. I'm sure lots more people in many places did too. So at 11 o'clock sharp (errrr . . . we were a few minutes late), Girl 2, Man of the House, and I stopped what we were doing and enjoyed second breakfast.
Tea, eggs, cheese, raspberries from our own backyard bushes, muffins, scones (a surprise from a lady at church who had no idea what we were planning!)~ it was a yummy celebration! Of all the races in Middle Earth, we are most like hobbits, so this was an fun time!
