SUNDAY SELFIE

SQUIRREL????

I got this picture of what looks like a squirrel looking into the trail camera. I showed it to both Mom and Dad and got two different opinions. What a surprise. Mom agrees with me it’s a squirrel and dad doesn’t agree it’s a squirrel. What do you think? I personally think it’s a cool picture either way. I would sure love to know what you think. Please let me by putting your opinion in the comment section or by using the contact form provided below. Below is the Picture. **Please Note that the time is 9:37 PM Eastern Time*. Odd Hah?

3 Month Wrap-Up

MAY

No I’m not leaving WordPress. The last 3 months just have been busy and hectic. In May my nephew went to Trump Tower(not allowed inside), My first niece graduated college and entered the Doctorate Program at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania and my fourth niece graduated highschool with distinctive honors. This was all over Mother’s Day Weekend. Below is a picture of the outside of Trump Tower.

JUNE

June is my busiest month. I start with my youngest sister’s wedding anniversary, My niece’s highschool graduation party(which I was unable to go to), My Mother’s birthday and  My parents’ wedding anniversary. Below is a Picture of my Mother’s Birthday cake.

MOM’S BIRTHDAY CAKE IN 2018.

JULY

I went to the doctor, Went on vacation with my family and Won a book called SWEET BREATH of MEMORY by ARIELLA COHEN. Fantastic book. I took an unexpected break from WordPress because I was recovering from being sick(almost 100% but not quite). Feeling better so I’m not going back for my follow-up appointment unless I have to.(Please Note follow-up appointment not scheduled yet). My one sister who is a fraternal twin(not to me) just starting to have problems with her toes. I would show you the picture she sent but because of how bad it looks I’m choosing not to show you. I hope you all understand.  When It rains it pours doesn’t it?

I Won: Book Review – Part 2

WELCOME

Once again. Welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. No we are not just a photo-blogging site but the site is about Animals, Photos, Blogging, Country Living, Family, Poetry And Much, Much More. I will be doing a book review on the book I won, SWEET BREATH of MEMORY by ARIELLA COHEN.

AUTHOR’S BOOK SYNOPSIS

With its tree-lined streets, vibrant downtown and curbside planters of spring bulbs, Amberley, Massachusetts, seems a good place for Cate Saunders to start over. It’s been two years since her husband, John, was killed in Iraq and life has been a struggle. Her new job as a caregiver doesn’t pay much, but the locals are welcoming. In fact, Cate has barely unpacked before she’s drawn–reluctantly at first—into a circle of friends.

There’s diner-owner Gaby, who nourishes her customers’ spirits as well as their bodies; feisty Beatrice, who kept the town going when its men marched off to WWII; wise-cracking MaryLou, as formidable as Fort Knox but with the same heart of gold; and, Sheila, whose Italian grocery is the soul of the place. As Amberley reveals itself to be a town shaped by war, Cate encounters another kindred spirit—a Holocaust survivor with whom she feels a deep connection. When revelations about John’s death threaten Cate’s new-found peace of mind, these sister-in-arms’ stories show her an unexpected way forward. And Cate comes to understand that although we suffer loss alone, we heal by sharing our most treasured memories.

MY HONEST REVIEW

I won this book and got it in the middle of vacation. I got the book on Monday, 7-16-2018. I took the book back with me and started reading it that afternoon. I loved the book so much I hated to put it down it was that good.

Usually when I read a book with a lot going on its just hard to follow but Ariella Cohen pulled everything together fantastically. I got this book on Monday and had it read by Wednesday. I now follow her blog and found out she has a sequel planned to the book SWEET BREATH of MEMORY. I can’t wait. There is so much I could say about this book but I’ll put it in a few words instead. The book is fantastic. I look forward to the sequel. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ariella Cohen is a graduate of Barnard College, the Hebrew University and the University of  Michigan Law School. Her short fiction appears in A Cup of Comfort for Couples, Heartscapes, and Flashshot. Although she makes her home in New England, her dream self resides in County Mayo, Ireland. 

SWEET BREATH OF MEMORY(FROM GOODREADS)

SWEET BREATH of MEMORY IS “…a heartwarming story of survival, foregiveness, and moving on.” – Booklist. The novel is available in trade paperback, ebook and Large Print hardcover.

Ariella believes in the healing power of cat purrs, coffee, Vivaldi and almond cookies. During the last summer Olympics, she felt compelled to run into the garden and prove she’s still a gymnast. It wasn’t pretty. Ariella lives in New England but her dream self resides in County Mayo, Ireland. She graduated with honors from Barnard College, Colombia University, and attended the Hebrew University as a visiting scholar. Her three years in Jerusalem were magical. After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, she somehow passed the NY & NJ bars.

WHAT IS SAID ABOUT THE BOOK

“A storyteller at the top of her game.”  

                                            —Jacqelyn Mitchard,

                                            New York Times

                                             best selling author

“Filled with compassion, humor and honesty, Ariella Cohen’s Sweet Breath of Memory is a powerful story of forgiveness…Through food and friendship, a community releases its long held secrets, and Cohen provides solace for her characters and her readers.”

—Karen Brown,

author of The Longings of Wayward Girls

“Ariella Cohen spins a tender yarn about the enduring nature of love, the importance of friendship and the eternal longing for a place to call home. Every page brims with warmth, wisdom and compassion.”

—Yona Zeldis McDonough,

author of You Were Meant for Me

I Won: Book Review – Part 1

DSCN0653INTRODUCTION AND WELCOME

Hi readers and welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. Daisy Mae has taken a few days off while I write this post. So she is not with me for this post. Also, most of you know Daisy Mae is my cat so she does what she wants(what a surprise). As many of you know I had to take a break from my WordPress blogs unexpectedly and just got back. Part 1 of this post will tell you How I got the book. Part 2 of this post will be the book review. If I did this post all in one it would be long. I hope you enjoy it. I’m so happy for all my followers and readers and yes I do appreciate you.   

WHAT I DID TO WIN

The first thing I did to win this book was read a post about the book and then there was Rafflecopter giveaway. To be truthful, I had mixed feelings about entering this giveaway. I finally decided and told myself you like to read so why not? Yeah Why Not. I deserve 1 of 3 signed copies as much as anyone.

HOW I FELT  WHEN I FOUND OUT I WON

 So when I received an e-mail I won 1 of 3 signed copies  of SWEET BREATH of MEMORY by best-selling author ARIELLA COHEN I was excited. No, I was more than excited, I was surprised and shocked. When I came across ARIELLA COHEN’S blog it was actually through another blog, Two Gals and a Book. Knowing ahead of time what it was about and the post title was descriptive too. When I checked her blog out I was impressed.

WHY I WAS THERE?

I was at ARIELLA’S blog for multiple reasons. What are the reasons you’re probably wondering and asking yourself? The reasons are: 1.) My curiosity was peaked through Two Gals And A Book that I had to check ARIELLA’S blog out. 2.) There was a giveaway on a signed copy of a book I hadn’t read(that I probably wouldn’t win but thought what the heck I’ll enter anyway—more on that later). 3.) I like to read. 4.) Lastly, I had multiple other reasons but listed are my top 3. If you want to check out ARIELLA COHEN’S BLOG it can be done by going to ARIELLA COHEN. This link will take you to her blog site.

RESULT

I won 1 of 3 signed copies of the book SWEET BREATH of MEMORY. I was ecstatic. I read the book on vacation and finished it within a week. I do

MY GOODREADS ACCOUNT

I do have a Goodreads account, however due to unforseen problems with getting my books to show on my Goodreads Widget so my Goodreads user profile link is Goodreads Profile . Remember if you check my link out, I just got a Goodreads account but I have read several books that I haven’t put on my shelves yet.

Goodreads Widget

WELCOME TO CRYSTAL'S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)

Some of the blogs I follow have Goodreads widgets. I have read several books too and just added a Goodreads widget(that I’m thinking about deleting because it’s not working for me). Oh what a surprise!! I have contacted WordPress and they are trying to help but no luck. My books refuse to show. The widgets there but books won’t show. 

If you can help me by telling me how to get the books to show I will be appreciative and grateful.

Interesting Question

WELCOME TO CRYSTAL'S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)


DSCN0440

For those of you who can’t read what’s on the Bible Cover it says:

They that wait upon the Lord

shall renew their strength

they shall mount up with Wings as Eagles…

Is.40:31

Today I continued following some good blogs. Before I follow a blog I check out the title of the blog, The blog’s tagline, Some of the posts, Can I follow it from the WordPress Reader with a Follow Button and Etc… I have found some good blogs this way. Today was no different. I found a blog that had an interesting tagline. It provokes thinking and that’s good. What blog was that?  The blog I found today with the interesting tagline is Whosoever Will, May Come . The tagline that posed the interesting question went like this. It was Faithful Believers. Are There Any Left? This is a good tagline. I like it.

I would like to…

I’M BACK…I HOPE

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY. (ORIGINAL PICTURE).

This post is to let everyone know I’m back…Well at least I hope I am. The reason why I had to leave WordPress for a while was that I got sick. I had to force myself to eat to keep my energy up, I didn’t even want to get on my computer(When that happens you know I’m sick). I was recovering and was almost better when what happens? I get sick again—Not Good. I’m not completely recovered but hope to be as soon as my allergies are gone. Then I went on vacation for a week. 

I’m happy to say I’m going to start back blog-hopping either tomorrow or in the next few days. Thanks for being patient with me everyone. So I hope to everyone real soon.
