Hey everyone, Mom heard about thing Humans do to Cats. Apparently they try to take pictures of our tocks in October. Luckily, Mom Crystal saved me the torture and already had a picture of my back end so I didn’t have to go through the torture. I was in the Christmas Tree box at Christmas time.
Hi and welcome my wonderful readers. I’m so glad you’re here whether it be night or day where you’re at. I went out of comfort zone and read this book called Clarity by Ethan Stein.
About The Author
ETHAN STEIN WAS BORN IN BUFFALO, NY, where he developed a love for writing at an early age. While the beginnings were rather gory and incomplete, it was the start of something important. In college, Ethan developed a far greater love and understanding of writing. It was there that he also began to develop the world of Marahspand, which was the foundation of his Divine Potentials Series. His wife and two kids have been very supportive in his quest to further flesh out his fantasy world and are eager to discover all he has to offer.
Author’s Book Excerpt
High Priestess Daena Vulatanne has spent more than a decade preparing to lead the Holy Order of the Water Goddess Anahita. The safety of the isolated community of women has always been paramount, but the arrival of a strange messenger forces her to question if their exposure is worth risking her role as the future leader.
Asha’s presence in the village threatens the secrecy the women have fought to maintain. While he carries a message for Daena’s people, he also holds the key to a rogue Order member’s lifelong ambition: revenge for the destruction of her brethren.
The purity and innocence Daena thought she knew soon gives way to evil and corruption. In a tumultuous time of deception, magic, and adventure, she must sacrifice something dear to her: her ideals, her devotion, or her life.
What I Thought About The Book & Rating Of Book
When I started out reading the book, I had no idea what to expect. However, I’m happy to say I found the book interesting, intriguing, suspenseful, a page turner and hated to put the book down. I wanted to see what happened next. I rate this book 4 1/2 stars.
My Book Recommendation & Caution
I do recommend the book. However I do caution Parents, Grandparents and Legal Guardians of children younger than 18+ to read the book first before letting your child/children read the book.
2.) One nice thing about staying home is I get some stuff done.
3.) Picking my cat up and loving her instantly makes my day better.
4.) When someone disagrees with me, I try to respect their opinion unless it has to do with animals. I actually dealt with this already when a guy once told me animals are dumb. To say the least, I lost it and told him there are probably more animals in this world I know that are smarter than some humans. That was the end of the discussion except for applause from people witnessing our loud discussion.
DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS
1.) I really need a toenail trim and a brushing.
2.) One nice thing about staying home is who am I kidding I’m always at home sleeping most of the day.
3.) Visiting my sister Tigger over at TIGGER & FRIENDSinstantly makes me feel better.
4.) When someone disagrees with me, I become louder and a lot more vocal. My furever family say I get more demanding MOL, LOL.
Hi everyone, it’s me Queen Daisy Mae. I get to the post today although Mom Crystal is helping me and putting her 2 cents in. I’m thrilled I finally get to do another post. Mom Crystal is under the weather with her Sinus cold and allergies. They really bother her and that makes her sneeze a lot and I mean a lot.
What are we thankful for? OH there is so much we are thankful for. I’m thankful for my brand new Flea And Tick Collar that protects me, I’m thankful for my furrever family, I’m thankful for my My Mommies and Daddy. Mom says to tell you she’s thankful for ME, Her Family, All the front line workers, All the veterans and Active military workers, Friends, and all the Mothers.
Mom Crystal’s niece who works at a hospital in Olean, New York is getting an antibody test done today to find out if she ever had the bad Corona Virus.
During these uncertain days, we all must find positivity. We all have many ways we can keep positive. However, for others it may not be that easy staying positive. I was going through some of my important digital pictures last night and I came across this sign that my one niece has. I loved the saying and thought this is what we all need to do.
Do you work on the front lines? AKA at a hospital or Veterinarian Hospital or do work behind the scenes AKA at home. Either way know this, the work you’re doing at home or at some type of hospital your efforts are very much appreciated.
My one niece who is a Radiologist at a hospital up in Olean, New York. She has been told the hospital where she is at might get other Corona Virus cases from other hospitals and Clinics.
I wish you all the best and Thank You Very Much to those on Front Lines trying to help us the best they can and know how.

Welcome everyone to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. As you know, this site is just not about photos but more. I always enjoy it when my readers and new visitors visit my site.
Today, I would like to tell you about a book I read and give you my review of the book, My Book Rating and Why, My thoughts and so much more.
About The Book(Goodreads):
Thomas Howard Charismatic head of one of the most powerful Houses in Tudor England. An indomitable old man approaching eighty: soldier, courtier, politician, a ‘phoenix rising’ from the ashes. After a calamitous period of disgrace, the Howards, renowned for their good looks and charm, are once more riding high at the court of Henry VIII.
Set against the backdrop of the extraordinary 1520 ‘Field of Cloth of Gold’, it is a tale of ambition, love, and intrigue with Thomas at the centre of this intricate tapestry
Will Thomas’s bold vow be fulfilled? Danger stalks the corridors of the royal courts of Europe. Uneasy lies the head beneath a crown. Every other ruler – a fickle bedfellow…or sworn enemy.
The action takes place in England, Scotland, and France. On either side of the Narrow Sea, four young lives are interwoven, partly unaware of each other, and certainly oblivious to what Dame Fortune has in store for them.
“Nicolas de La Barre laid his lute to one side, hardly bothering to stifle a yawn of boredom. Nevertheless, he couldn’t escape the fact he’d agreed to take on a new wife…”
Explosive family secrets are concealed behind the ancient walls of castles in three lands. But… “There are no secrets that time does not reveal.”
About the Author(Goodreads):
Born near historic Winchester in the UK, I have been passionate about the Tudors for as long as I can remember. This led to a degree in Medieval History at university and the growing desire to write a novel. However, life took over somewhat and only after stays, short and long, in six countries I called home did I finally settle down to finish my novel.
Words have always played an important part in my life, whether it’s been writing, editing, teaching English, or just picking up a good book. In preparation for my Tudor series, I did an enormous amount of research.
Having three sons came in very handy when I had to write about squabbles between Nicolas and Tristan in my novel. Not so handy when I took them to Hampton Court and one of them got lost in the maze! I also used the men in my life as guinea pigs for my Tudor Cookery attempts (recipes included) with varying degrees of protest.
Seeing ‘A Phoenix Rising’, the first book in the series ‘The House of the Red Duke’ in print for the first time was a moment of great joy for me. I hope anyone reading it will enjoy the end result as much as I enjoyed writing it.
My Book Rating:
📕📕📕📕📕 (5 books = 5 stars)
What I Thought Of The Book:
When I first started reading this book, it was like I read it before. The names were so familiar to me. So I looked in front of the book and read what it was all about then read the back of the book. It was well so weird and strange because I felt like I was reading about some of my ancestors in the book. I did find out it was set in the 16th century. Those of you who have just moaned or are thinking about it well… I had probably had similar thoughts. But I assure you, despite being set in the 16th century the book was written in English 99.9% of the time so you don’t have much 16th century talk to deal with. I loved the book and look forward to the next one. The title of Book 2 is: The House Of The Red Duke: The Lizard Lurking In The Grass. Best of all in the back of the book, there is a 16th century words and phrases from A – Z translated to the English words and phrases.
I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed reading this book a lot I did not want to put the book down. I hope you buy, read it and review it. Look forward to see what you all think of this book.
Earlier in the year or Maybe late in December 2019, I told you all my goals for 2020. Well I’m happy to say Mom hasn’t got worse and is keeping her independence, as for me staying healthy that isn’t going well at this time. However, I am very happy to say I’m halfway done with my draft for Book 4. I’m at 18,116 words. That is at the start of Chapter 10. Woo Hoo!! My hope is to have Book 4 done in about 6 to 7 months if all goes well and after that, I hope to get the Epilogue started.
I hope to get more words typed in the next few days. Wish Me Luck.
Hi Everyone Daisy Mae here, Did you miss me and my HuMom? Well, I’m sorry to say my HuMom has been sick since before Christmas. It’s one of those things just when she thinks she’s all better she gets sick again. She even got a flu shot too. So I’m filling in for her until she is better.
Today, I have something special for you. Crystal one of my HuMoms got this neat craft kit for Christmas. She thought it was going to be hard to make because directions weren’t clear and the people who got it for her couldn’t help her either. But once again, youngest sister to the rescue well youngest sister and her family showed her what to do and that helped tremendously. She finished her No Sew Blanket this Morning. So what is a No Sew Blanket? A No Sew Blanket Kit is a blanket you obviously don’t sew it, and since the directions weren’t clear it’s really hard to explain. However, I will show you the finished project below.

Love at Christmas
This paperback book is a compilation of Four Christmas Novellas by Anne Greene. Each book in this book is excellent and very well written. This book is Clean, no graphic sex, no cussing, no vulgarity, no use of the F word. Just good clean reading and inspirational. I highly recommend this book and would be a good book for a book club to read.
The books in this book can be bought separately too. If your interesting in reading my review on Bookbub the link for the review is: Love at Christmas Book Review .
A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery
This paperback book is an inspirational, clean Christmas mystery. This book is excellent reading and well written. Many kudos to Anne Greene for writing her books inspirational and keeping them clean. Just goes to show you don’t need all that graphic sex, vulgarity and cussing and gore to sell a book. If a book is well written, action packed, has plots twists turns and keeps me interested, then the author has successfully done her/his job. Personally, if you put graphic sex, cussing and vulgarity, use or overuse the use of the F word and put a lot of gore in your book then I can honestly say that is a complete turn off for me. However, I will read a book and find out while reading the F word is used then I usually do 1 of 2 things, I either put down and it becomes a DNF (Did Not Finish) or if I find out the F word is used, I decide is the book well written enough to finish the book. Most of the time though it turns out being DNF’s. Once again, Anne Greene writes another Fantastic book.
I highly recommend both these books and hope you go buy and read them. I reviewed this book on Bookbub and to read the review you can go to: A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery Review .
*full disclosure* I won A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery in Anne Greene’s newsletter contest and she also sent me the book Love at Christmas to review.
