Confused...

Hilltop Hall....on a warm day in...November...

-I'm soooo confused..twittered Miss Moussie with a sigh....I'm ever so confused....
-What's the matter dear...asked the Dutches in response....Is there something I can help you with...?
-Don't think so...twittered Miss Moussie...only if you could....change the weather....
-Change the weather dearest...but WHY..look outside...its the most glorious November we had in ages..
-Yes yes..I know..and I find this to be very suspicious..its not how its supposed to be...
-O...you want it to be cold..and rainy...windy and wet....
-Yes..so we can snuggle up in the house...It may sound strange but I've had enough of summer..I'm kind of tired..and there Miss Moussie sat herself down on a baguette..next to the french cheese and a pot of berry marmalade. ..fumbling with the spoon where she just stirred her tea with...
-Your tea is getting cold dear...I made it extra sweet for you...four lumps of sugar...as you like it..
-I'm not in the mood for tea..twittered Miss Moussie..
-Come on ....said the Dutchess a bit worried...this is not like you at all....cheer up dear..

At that moment in time a little person wearing big spectacles entered the kitchen...It was Mr Mole..
-Hello there Mr C...smiled the Dutches..so good to see you...would you join us for a cup of tea....
-That would be lovely...answered Mr Mole...but first..let me tell you something..there's news...and he waved with a newspaper..I just read it....
-O,then do tell us..said the Dutches...and I'm sure Miss Moussie would like to hear it too...
Miss Moussie didn;t move... she didn;t even look up...and she didn;t even say hello to Mr C...
Goodness...she really is very sad today..

-LLLListen,stuttered Mr Mole..like he always does when he is exited...LLListen...We are going to have the WINTER of ALL WWWinters....there is a winter traveling to our Hilltop like we have NEVER experienced before...With mountains of snow and Its going to be sooo cold...so cold like on the north pole...What do you think about THAT...
-REALLY..twittered Miss Moussie whilst jumping up and down...REALLY...how marvelous...O my...so many things to do in so little time....we have to be prepared...now even all the little birdies will need mittens.....O dear..
Miss Moussie dropped her spoon and before you could say cheerio...she was gone....disappearing under the doormat....through the crack in the wall....off to her birds nest...Leaving Mt C and our Dutchess sitting there in wonder what to expect next...

OOOOOOH I came right in time. Now for the weather. OUT HERE where Tea Rat and Rattus reside, it has been so warm and there are still green leaves on the trees in some parts! These two rats were rather on the worrying side as well, and agree with the Divine Miss M. that a good hunk of CHEESE, a squishy on the inside, crusty on the outside baguette and some jam would be smashing.

IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU BACK AT THE DRAWING TABLE DEAREST!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND...I just called you, thinking I could catch you...but I can see that you are busy calming down Miss M.!!!

TAKE CARE LITTLE ONE!!!!!!!!!! Nita

We too are ready to snuggle up for whatever winter will come our way here at Witsend. But there will always be plenty of warm hearth and hearts for any visitors.

On another note, Tea Rat said that before he dies he must see a cute mouse sitting on a baguette.

Your devoted friend,
Rattus Scribus
