C'mon in and sit right down. It's time to relax. I welcome you all with open arms.

Let me make you some tea with little heart ginger snaps, if you like.

Let the tea warm you as you watch the rain drizzle on the trees. It really is a beautiful day, isn't it?

Forget about the time

as you watch the bamboo grow

and listen to the water droplets falling so peacefully.

Sit and meditate, or pray, forget or perhaps even remember peaceful times' past.

Curl up on the sofa with a hand full of magazines, poetry books and fun reads. Bella will be there to massage you into blissful peace.

Or, if you prefer, crawl into your bed and take a mid-day nap. Those are always welcome here.

I've left the light on for you in case you sleep through the night and awake startled wondering where you are.

Welcome to my little peace of the world. I hope you enjoy your stay. You are always welcome here. There is always room. I hope you are fond of my new little place.

Leave a comment and I will pick a name on Friday and send you a wonderful box of Belgian chocolates.

Shhhhh. Now, it's time to relax.

*Dedicated to my dear friend Pammy who needs a little peace right now.*

My new look is from Birdie Says!

Oh how relaxing, Rosa... I could curl up with Bella and read a good book. Your tea sounds delicious and I'll even take one of those ginger snaps!!!!! Thanks!!!!

Hmmm--don't think I can visit another site tonight.. I'm so relaxed and sleepy. Thanks for such a great post.

Beautiful post and gorgeous new look, dear Rosemary! (But don't put my name in for any Belgian chocolates; that just wouldn't be fair, would it?) :) xo

What a tempting day you present - tea and cookies, feathery beds and kitties to pet. A perfect day in my world.

Dianne said...

I'm loving the new blog! Very snazzy.

How can a Southern Gal like you have never made salsa before? Your pictures made me hungry but I started Jenny Craig so no cheating. Well, salsa is a free food but the chips you dip into it aren't. Sigh...

Pammy isn't the only one who could use this right now. How I want that peace, that solace, that beauty and that calm (and that Bella!) right now. I think I've forgotten how to relax...

Beth said...

Ok,,I really know where you live so I am coming over right now. It just looks too peaceful! Love your new Look! Hope I get to see you soon.
