Forgotten, Cup Of Tea.

She sat. Steaming. Tag blowing gently in the breeze.

On the tiled table of the covered porch. Waiting

for a sip. Someone to come along. Brewed

minutes ago. Long forgotten. The steam has stopped billowing.

Tempid she became. Cold and tasteless. Forgotten in the home.
Foot falls echo from the house. Doors swing wide.

Laughter and conversation spill outside.

“Oh, my tea!” She chuckles. As she takes a sip.

“It’s gone cold. Let’s go revive it.”

Dumped in the sink as the kettle is filled up.

A new bag hits the bottom of the cup. We’ll

try again. Maybe this time. She can enjoy this tea.

Instead of it growing cold while waiting patiently.

Warmth.

the

sudden

sigh

of

content

when

the

sun

shines

warmly

on

my

face


Finding warmth in the days nearing winter. The sun holds onto her rays of warm light a little tighter these days. May she squeeze some of those warm rays our way. Lighten our skies. Bless our days.

Love and blessings, ๐Ÿ’• Carrie

Holding On.

Leaves have fallen. Branches bared.

Only one staying is this nest up here.

Holding tight to wind, rain, and sun.

A reminder of growth, nurturing, and young.

Eventually, it will fall away. 

Creating space for a new one one-day.

Who, Who, Are You?

Who goes there?

Past my tree

Without a care?


I was running a little behind schedule last week which had me feeding rabbits at night fall. It was light enough to see what I was doing without a torch, but dark enough for the owls to be up.

There us something peaceful in the deep hoot of the Great Horned Owl.

He flew off after a few hoots. I noticed him land farther away. Then I heard screeching. I had to look up the sound when I got inside to find out it was a barn owl. 

I guess they crossed territories. The barn owl is not very peaceful sounding. Rather creepy in a way.

I keep listening and watching for them.

Spectacular New Day!

Waking on another Monday morn.

Watching quietly as a new week is born.

Beautiful it is to see.

The day unfold so brilliantly.


Cheers to another blessed week! May we all have something to be grateful for.

Brilliant!

The clouds have parted.

The sun us now here.

Brilliantly shining.

Illuminating. 

Warming. 

Glowing with care.


There is nothing quite like the beauty of the sun after a day of rain. It’s like seeing a good friend.

Love and blessings, ๐Ÿ’• Carrie
