Walk up the pathway to my cottage and you will be greeted
While the smell of freshly baked muffins
Entices you to sit for a spell.
On into the kitchen you will discover the truth of:
"If you install stainless steel appliances they will come
. . . fingerprints, that is.
Matthew routinely inspects
To assure that the dishwasher functions
Despite the ultra-quiet feature that mums the sound.
Ah, I see Rachel has been playing with her food again.
(And sharp knives, too!)
I'm afraid you've missed Elizabeth as she attends classes daily 9-5.
Her door sports a Rachel Original proclaiming Elizabeth's Room.
The sweet optimism of my sunny Lydia
Shines from her bedside table,
. . . As well as atop her bed.
(The tiger cuddles with another Rachel creation.)
Just what has Rachel been up to these days?
Well, what does a 10-year-old do
After reading through the AMA Medical Encyclopedia?
She goes into practice, of course!
Herein lies Tigger
Undergoing radiation treatment for pancreatic cancer.
(I have that info straight from Dr. Rachel.) My personal favorite:
The Maternity Ward. : D
Alas, I see our time has slipped away and you must be on your way.
I walk you to the door and equip you with a hug for the road and an invite to return soon. Then I turn and begin the business of tidying up . . .
But I stop when I catch a glimpse of my rescued sprig-of-a-fuchsia (snapped off in an annoying blunder). After a spell in a bath it rooted, then bedded down in the windowsill pot, wherein it has rewarded me with buds upon buds over the course of the winter. Just the other day I noticed it sported three new buds . . .
. . . which have all too soon became blooming beauty.
Realizing how quickly time passes . . . I sit down for another cup of tea and pick up a book, only to be interrupted by a sweet young one with a question. I smile and wink at the bud in the window. Thanks for reminding me.
Glance around and enJOY your day, sweet friends. ; )
