#FridayFantasy . . .Listening to the birds. And that squirrel….



“Say, Pooh, why aren’t you busy?” I said.
“Because it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“Yes, but —“
“Why ruin it?” he said.
“But you could be doing something Important,” I said.
“I am, ” said Pooh.
“Oh? Doing what?”
“Listening,” he said.
“Listening to what?”
“To the birds. And that squirrel over there.”
“What are they saying?” I asked.
“That it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“But you know that already,” I said.
“Yes, but it’s always good to hear that somebody else thinks so, too,” he replied.

#SoftTuesday . . . .If you smile at me





If you smile at me 
I will understand
cause that is something
everybody everywhere does
in the same language.

#SoftTuesday . . . .To crown my daily lot,






“I do not ask for splendour
To crown my daily lot, 
But this I ask – a kitchen
Where the kettle’s always hot.”

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

One of the shining moments of the day….

“One of the shining moments of the day is that when, having returned a little
weary from an afternoon walk, I exchange boots for slippers, out-of-door coat
for easy, familiar, shabby jacket, and, in my deep, soft-elbowed chair, await
the tea-tray…
How delicious is the soft yet penetrating odour which floats into my study, with
the appearance of the teapot! What a glow does it bring after a walk in chilly
rain.”

~ George Gissing

Teatime Poem!

When the world is all at odds, and the mind is all at sea.
Then cease the useless tedium, and brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance, there is solace in its taste.
And the laden moments vanish, somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing, there’s beauty as you’ll see.
All because you briefly stopped to brew a cup of tea.

Here’s A Nut.

Here’s A Nut.

‘Here’s a nut, there’s a nut;
Hide it quick away,
In a hole, under leaves,
To eat some winter day.
Acorns sweet are plenty,
We will have them all:
Skip and scamper lively
Till the last ones fall.’

~ Louisa May Alcott
