Oh dear Oh dear ...I shall be late!!


Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?


So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

  1. Simply delightful! Your little Alice~er~Anna is a perfect model for the story, as is SnowShoe! ;~P

  2. Oh my goodness...this was just adorable!

    Tell me - are those mushrooms edible?



  3. Anna is such a beauty~what a fun past. I so enjoyed reading it!

  4. Yes, I agree. This was another good post. Thank you so much for sharing your love of books and the smiles that we always feel when we come to your blog.

    Blessings in Christ Jesus!

  5. That was delightful!! I enjoyed your Anna as Alice and your white rabbit, Snowshoe. I have always thought Alice in Wonderland was the most funny story I have ever read~everything in it is so illogical. I see that it is out in the movies and it looks to be a very "dark" story~not what Lewis Carroll intended for his neice when he wrote it. God bless my friend, Rose

  6. Dear Heather,

    How adorable! Anna is just the perfect "Alice", isn't she? And a white rabbit, too, who could ask for more? :)

    Sometimes we feel like we live in Wonderland, too, when we look around at the things going on all around ;).




Thanks For leaving your thoughts...Have a blessed day!
