Most Urgent..


Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest”

She fell down upon the bed that stood there, and lay in a deep sleep. And this sleep extended over the Hilltop, the mouse and the frog who had just come home, and had entered the great hall, began to go to sleep, and the whole of the house with them. The birds, too, went to sleep in the trees,the pigeons upon the roof, the spider on the wall, even the fire that was flaming on the hearth became quiet and slept, the roast meat left off frizzling. And the wind fell, and on the trees before the Hilltop Hall not a leaf moved again....

I hope you all have a peacfull Sunday...At the Hilltop its starting to snow again...I think I will go to sleep and sleep until spring..

Oh dearest...that is so peaceful; you are lullying me to sleep as I sit here and begin another day of completing homework assignments. Your little book that I am making is calling me to tickled it with more little drawings...I hear its call and it gives me joy to know it awaits me and then YOU. What a lovely little story my dearest....I think I will click on Hilltop to go and enter into a little slumber of joy. Bisous to all at Hilltop...

Ohhh, good morning dearest! Off to Paris we go, together, to visit all the musées, take tea at Ladurée and then off to the countryside to visit Marie-Ange in the midst of calming lavender fields. Miss M. could come with us in YOUR purse and we would scour the countryside for other friends, fine food and bliss. Bisous, Anita

Sleep well, but we do hope you arise before spring, we would miss your dainty footsteps at ButtonWillow.

hugs dear ones,

That is such a beautifully detailed painting - I really like the artistic style of it...and January seems the perfect month for sleeping. I hope you have a relaxing weekend.
