What a great post. Mandibelle16 wrote this post and it is a great read. Please Read This Post.
When I first got sick with POTS, I asked the nurse if this illness would last forever. She told me yes it would, and I felt sick to my stomach. Tears streamed down my cheeks like they never have before — I’m someone who tries to hold them in until they just spill out — and for the first time in my life the future looked like a deep, dark hole.
Forever is a heck of a long time to have something new and frightening. I couldn’t walk ten feet without feeling like someone was spinning me around on a desk chair, and I didn’t want to keep living a life like this. I felt so much regret for the moments I had a working body and didn’t appreciate them. I regretted the many mistakes I’ve made as a human being because I felt like my illness was punishment for…

Hello and welcome Everyone, in my book report this week I’m going from a historical view. The book is called Gingham Bride by New York Times Best Selling Author Jillian Hart . It deals with arranged marriages and how children were treated.
WHAT DREW ME TO READ THE BOOK:
curiosity and the publisher’s synopsis. It also sounded interesting and I wanted to see what a fiction book was like on these subjects.
This book is about a good-looking young man named Ian and a beautiful young woman named Fiona that their parents and grandparents have arranged for them to be married. It’s also about a controlling man who got married just so he could give orders and sit around the house and play poker and drink beer. If Fiona does something wrong he hits her and she can’t go to school for days. To find out how things turn out for these two you’ll have to read the book.
Fiona O’Rourke doesn’t believe in love—and certainly not in a marriage arranged by her cruel father. And even if her unexpected betrothed seems honorable and kind, can she trust his motives…or the attraction between them?
Ian McPherson came to Montana to salvage his family’s dwindling fortune, not to take a wife. But he’s instantly drawn to Fiona. He wants to protect her—even if that means pretending that they’re engaged. In a season of surprises and miracles, there’s nothing he won’t give to show Fiona his love is for always.
The book setting takes place in Montana with deep snow and a chilling cold.
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK:
That despite Fiona’s hardships at home, she had friends at school and at work(that had to be kept secret from her parents) that helped her through each day. Also, I liked the fact that this guy was willing to pretend to be engaged just to protect her from her father and from anyone else that could be engaged to her.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
I thought there was too much going on in the book. However, It all came together in the end which I enjoyed.
RECOMMENDATION FOR THE BOOK:
I found the book an interesting read. My recommendation would be to read the book for yourself and form your own opinion. you may have a different opinion than I do.
If you read this book let me know what you think. I provided a link above that has a bunch of links you may be interested in. Below is another link. For the other links click on the above link where it says Jillian Hart.

Day 10 has come and gone and guess what everyone you know what that mean? You guessed it if you said I completed another course. I’m so happy to be done. It wasn’t as easy as they made it sound. Below is what we covered.
I’m grateful to be done. Now I think it’s time for a well deserved break.
Today is Day 9 of my blogging course and I’m almost done. Can we say Yippee!!
Today we covered HTML Basics. If you think it sounds confusing that’s because it is. I tried doing it but not sure I understand it. Guess we’ll find out tomorrow when I have to use what I learned today. Understanding hyperlinks is not what I thought. The areas we covered were:
Today was interesting. Didn’t really understand what I was doing or what I was reading. Today I had to adjust the visibility of one of my widgets. Once I started reading how to do it, I was so confused.
I try to understand what they want me to know on widget visibility but sometimes things can be so confusing.
Areas we covered today were:
Hello to all my readers on this lovely Friday leading to a wonderful weekend. I wanted to let you all know CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE will be getting a makeover in the near future and soon. New theme and all my widgets will be at the bottom. The name of my new theme is Vintage Camera. Vintage Camera is a retired theme but I’m allowed to use it since I used it once before. I ask for patience during this time of the makeover.
Today we went over how to create custom texts and create a custom image. The areas that were covered were:
Why use text widgets? Image widgets can be used for just about anything; we particularly appreciate when bloggers use them to highlight social networking profiles, direct our attention to special features, or draw us into different sections of their blogs. They’re eye-catching, and encourage readers to explore.
Hi everyone it’s Daisy Mae again. I had to go to the vet this week so I’m a little late with my cat quote. I don’t travel good in the vehicle and let my owners know it. I even scratched my owner when she was trying to calm me down. I know I probably should not have scratched my owner because after all, all she was doing was trying to calm me down. She forgave me. Just to let you know I’m feeling better since the vet gave me a steroid shot and an antibiotic shot.
I’m killing two birds with one stone so to speak. I’m bringing you a cat quote that is also an English superstition. How cool is that? What’s that you say? You can’t wait to see the Cat Quote And English superstition all rolled into one. Well in that case and without further adieu below is the Cat quote/English superstition. Enjoy it and have a great weekend.
A cat sleeping with all four paws tucked under means cold weather ahead.
