Stay warm and stay happy..

click for music to go with this post..

Whilst the little ones are having fun on the Hilltop. I will be gone for a few days...visiting Family.
We will be with many..
And we will be happy to gather in my daughters house this year to sit under the tree and open presents. A room full of tales will be echoing..
All will be there.

                        I am sure the Hilltops inhabitants can manage without me for a few days

Inspiration: Benjamin Bouncer is pictured here in the late 1880s or early 1890s. He would later become Benjamin Bunny in Beatrix Potter's novels
Back soon my dear reader and friend...stay warm and stay happy.xoxo

I don't know what it is dearest Dutchess, but you and PENNY have a way about how you compose your posts that makes me cry.

The gentle music, the precious pictures....you are always so gentle. This post is special to me because I love Beatrix Potter's world, Peter and his bold cousin Benjamin, and how real they are to me.

I too will be away starting Friday; I am flying off to California for Christmas with my family for the first time in 28 years! I will miss you dear one....

Good morning zuster!

I am always honored when YOU come to visit me. Can you see it in your mind's eye....the possibility of all the animals making their way to a manger, then people marching toward this place, then having the sky explode into stars? Then if we could pull back the curtain of the sky, what would YOU want to see there?

Wishing you a magical time with all the people you love. I will miss you, but let's come back in the new year with A BANG! LOVE TO YOU, Nita
