" What is this life, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows
No time to see when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their
nuts in grass.
No time to turn at beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they dance.
No time to wait till her mouth
can enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare ".....
William Henry Davies.
This very week my little blog celebrates
her three years of musings..
The poem above is very fitting as this is one of the
poems my Mama used to recite to us often,
~ when we were quite small, and even more as we grew up !
She forgot many things, you see.
But never her love for animals, trees, flowers and the seasons..
But most of all us.
I am a ~ thinking you already know I nursed my Mum
through a long and very sad journey
with Alzheimers Disease .
The' past' being most apparent in my little corner...
The memories here would only include
the happy days though ......
The' Rosey Tinted' happy times..
I made a little promise you see!
I would never leave my little place called home
without wearing my' Rosey tinted spectacles'...
It's the only way to view the world, when days are mighty tough, you see.
Along with my little blog anniversary .
Mr RTS has celebrated his birthday too, this very week !
Ooh my lots of cakes and many candles have been blown out ..
~ along with making a few wishes,,,
I would like to say, that I baked those delightful
banana and walnut muffins, above .
But alas it would be a 'little white lie '.
No, Mr RTS's made these little beauties him self !!
Very yummy they were as well.
We visited Miss Olivia, this last weekend too..
Leeds is a very vibrant, quirky city.
We had a wonderful time catching up with her and viewing
her world and life here at the university !
Yey, life is for ever changing.....
Time returns to you, once they fly the nest.
But the best part is finding your selves once again..
And that includes adult life too !
I must also add here, that it was my beautiful girl that helped me
patiently set up my blog..
she kindly showed me the' ins and outs' of being on here.
And that wasn't the easiest of tasks.
She also spell checked me so often , that I came to rely
on this and we both very often laughed at just how I speak and write
in my Mama's tongue.
Ooh yes I'm an old soul.
Words and there meanings open up a magical world on here
I came to look forward each day to reading and seeing every ones days
in pretty pictures..
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind
that I have enjoyed the best~ est company,
in these past three years.
Thank you !
We are almost through February!
~ Not quite sure how that happened..
Time flies I guess when you are busy ..
My today is for just being..
Be kind to your selves, too .
Be still, and call forth the dreams you may have buried
All we have is now with no guarantees
Thank you for kindest words always..
I'm off to pop on the kettle and catch up with you all.
Hugs Maria x
