Precious Time

Time don’t let it away

Savor the moments

Hidden in every nook and cranny 

My grandpas watch in my pocket 

Saying catch me if you can

You can’t bottle it or save it 

So enjoy each precious second.

Tic tock tic time is a wasting 

Don’t let it slip away thinking of what could have been yesterday

Or will be tomorrow

Off to my garden with fresh veggies and herbs

Did I say you can’t bottle Thyme? 

I just did with my herbs in the garden

Good Morning Everyone ~

When I was digging up my garden to plant this year, I needed to take the well established Thyme out to make room for something else. So, I dried it and then bottled it and put in my seasoning drawer and it’s so fragrant and fresh. I also replanted some in tiny pots and dropped them off at about 20 friends doors in town with a note that said “Thinking of you during this strange thyme”. It was really fun to warm people’s hearts and bring some good cheer. For others I couldn’t reach, I sent thyme seed pockets to them in the mail. You might enjoy stealing this idea for your friends if you have the thyme.

Thanks for reading!!!!

Have a wonderful day enjoying your time.

Please like (if you do of course), comment and share if inclined.

I really appreciate it.

      1. Indeed Cindy. 😇. I loved your last post as well. But I don’t somehow my comment got deleted. WordPress sometimes acts weird. 😅

      2. I was a little too busy today Cindy. Too many broken appliances and also the prime day orders came in today. Hahaha. Let me see if I can come up with something. 😇😇

  4. My son-in-law Clay and I had a bottle of thyme that we sent back and forth several thymes with humorous messages. It was an inexpensive gift for birthdays, Christmas, etc. Much fun. –Curt

  5. This is such a lovely idea: giving the gift of thyme to your friends! It’s a lovely poem too and so true, we need to savour every moment. I love thyme as it’s so versatile in cooking and adds depth of flavour to just about any dish!

  6. My English thyme is just now getting nice and healthy—I use it in cooking. Some herbs do well here in Tucson’s heat; others expire. You are such a boon to your friends and what a poet!

  8. Sooper Dooper my dear friend. Sweet poem plotted nicely. Gardening is also one of my favorite hobby, and I do it whenever I visit my sweet home. Nice, keep it up dear.

      1. I was able to comment but not follow.. I don’t allow email posts or I get overrun with stuff.. Please make sure you tell her to allow reader. Ping me when it’s done and I’m happy to follow her..

      2. She doesn’t have a blog😔, she just write for my blog💝. As recently I have changed my hosting plan from premium to business. Maybe that’s the reason it ask for email🤔. I think email won’t have any problem for you😘.
