..................Welcome to the Little Cottage down the Hill...

8/17/11

Its called August....

With a little lunchbox filled with cookies Miss Moussie left her birds nest...

She wandered down the garden path and entered the Hilltop Forest..

-Isn't August supposed to be warm...she twittered talking to herself....and isn't August supposed to be a wonderful month for picnic's..I don't know whats wrong with the weather this year,but it makes me worry...
I would love to sit in the grass and eat my cookies but..I don't think I will be able to find a dry cosy spot..its all wet and muddy in this forest...and this will ruin my dress..I believe Summers aren't what they used to be...

-You mustn't say that my dear Miss Moussie..you mustn't say that...croaked a toad's voice behind her...
-O...Oeps... Gustave...squeaked Miss Moussie..you startled me..I didn't hear you coming..what are you doing in the forest today...picking herbs for your soup...
-No my dear Lady..I come here for the silence....
-The silence...?
-Yes...just listen.....!
-..............................? I don't hear a thing....not even a bird sing..or a leaf rustling ..there is no wind....there is no sun....O ..Gustave ..I find that very suspisious...
-Its not suspisious at all Miss...its called August...

Now Miss Moussie looked puzzled..she raised one eyebrow...took a deep breath and twittered....Gustave...you know I don't like it when you talk in riddle's...

-Its simple dearest...Nature is at rest....the great works have been done...the little birds are all grown up...the flowers bloomed..the berries ripe to be picked..the green is greener then green..and we are the lucky ones to see this..and enjoy it..in silence...
Wait..croaked Gustave... you can take a seat on this mossy pillow...after I, as the true gentlemen that I am...covered it with my very clean handkerchief..so your lovely dress will not get wet..

-Ah..Gustave ,you are such a darling..twittered Miss Moussie whilst she sat down on the moss under a big tree...
--Look up dearest..croaked Gustave...this is a grand moment in time..we are sitting in a cathedral of green..just you and I..and all is well in this world..

Dear Miss Moussie,
I too have noticed the world quieting down. It scared me at first. But my friend Tea Rat reminded me that it's just Autumn coming on.

It will soon be winter, and that is when we will need our family and friends close to us. For seasons may come and go, but love and friends, never.

Your friend,
Rattus

Gosh Miss Moussie, I never really noticed it before... but it IS more quiet in August.
I love the illustration, it looks so peaceful under those trees...so...so .. August.

I am here. It took me a while, because my little cart got stuck in the mud, and Rattus, who went ahead of me, had to come to dig me out. Yes dearest ones, the world is changing. Whether the weather is acting up, or just the seasons bowing out of this grand performance, we are in for a change. But what I hope will always remain is the laughter and care with which we all engage our minds and hearts. I AM OVER THE MOON with this drawing....the colors you are now using more of..dearest, you are a master.

WITH MUCH LOVE, Nita
