Sabi Saturday With Angel Snowball

For Sabi Saturday I have decided to multiple old things since I got somehow so many old things in this picture. However, the main old thing I wanted  to do was one of my cats and her name was Snowball. She’s an Angel now. In the picture like I said there are are many old things. In the picture below you’ll see on my bed Angel Snowball. You’ll also see some other old things as well. You’ll see a stuffed cat which I appropriately named “SnowPuff” on the bed with Snowball also on the bed that’s old is a bedspread Pillow and stuffed teddy bear which I named “Teddy”. Also you’ll see some other old things like my cat box, pink curtains, the white shelves, yellow doll on the shelf, Santa container, books and picture album. Picture below.

As I told you previously about my niece going for her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy. Not only that but she has POTS DISEASE and other  health issues. What is POTS Disease I’m sure asking yourselves? POTS Disease is: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which means it is a condition in which a change from lying to standing causes abnormally large increase in heart rate. To Find out more about POTS Disease you can go to this search link and it is: POTS Disease (search links) .

Don’t think for an instant the University paid for this trip or any other trips the students had to take. OH no, the students paid for this trip and it wasn’t even part of their tuition. They had to pay for it separately. These are just some of the pictures we got. In the one picture the young woman is my niece.

The picture of the Eagle below is very old. This ought to tell you how old it is because I was still a kid when they got it. They always wanted a wood carving like when they found this Eagle they got it. We still have it. I just love it.



A Special Caturday Art

Hi everyone and a big welcome to you. Also a Very Happy Easter to you too. I wanted to do something very special for Easter so I decided to write a poem and create a puzzle for you to do. I hope you like it.


Jesus came to earth knowing what 

His Father’s will was for Him 

To do but He came to  

Earth anyway. For many Years He

Taught about his Father and the

 Only way to get to Heaven 

Is through Him. While on His 

 Journey and mission He taught many  

 People but even though they heard   

Him teach the Truth, some of

Those people tested and tried Him

 But He always prevailed and we

 See that in the miracles He

Performed. When Palm Sunday came 

And the people layed palm branches

on the road and was all for

Following Him until Pilate gave the

 People a choice to crucify Him or

Let Him live. The people chose

Crucify Him. He knew this was

His mission to accomplish all along

And He still remained Silent. Why

Did He remain silent? He remained

Silent because He knew His mission

Was to save us from our sins

And to do that He had to die

On the cross and on that third

Day, He arose from the dead and

ascended into heaven and sitteth on

The Right hand of His Father

And reigns With His Father in

Heaven. So why Did Jesus come

To earth? To die For our sins.

So when you’re teaching your kids

And grandkids about Easter,

Remember it’s OK to

Incorporate the Easter Bunny

Just be sure you teach them

The real reason for Easter.

Praise God He Is Risen Indeed!!

Here is a puzzle for you to do. It’s of the above photo. Below is the link/code for the puzzle. Have Fun.

To those bloggers who use Blogger, I’m very sorry if you think I dropped you for some reason. Actually the truth is that I’m still following you and even reading your posts. The reason I can’t  comment is because Google+ is well… no more and I’m not signing up for something else. I’m still reading and following you. I may try doing it from notifications. If you have any ideas on how I can comment easily please let me know. Some of you I know have been accommodating and changed your settings to include Name/URL. For those who have done that thank you. To the others well… I get why you don’t want anonymous people but Name/URL isn’t anonymous.

New England Blueberry Cake


I follow Author Anne Greene via her newsletter by email. In her newsletter there are excerpts from her books, excerpts from other author’s books, recipes and book recommendations.  This recipe is from Anne Greene’s book Recipe For A Husband. I’m sharing this recipe of hers with permission and with her blessing. Below is the Recipe. Enjoy. Please let me know how things go and how it turned out if you make it.


3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup shortening

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

2 cups sifted flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups fresh New England blueberries


Blend sugar and shortening on medium speed, add milk and eggs. Reduce speed to low. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to mixture. Mix only until all flour has been moistened. Fold in blueberries. Spread batter in greased and floured 9-inch square pan.

Crumb Topping

1/3 cup sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup soft butter

Combine and blend until crumbly. Sprinkle crumb topping over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Also makes 2 dozen muffins. 


Spread berries on wax paper and sprinkle a little flour over them. This keeps the berries from settling to the bottom of the cake.




Sabi Saturday

I know it’s Sunday but since I have all week I’m technically not late. I thought and thought what could I do for Sabi Saturday? I ran an idea past Cactus Catz and they liked my idea. This week, I thought I would do something I know is a classic. MY BABY BOOK. Below are the photos.





Sabi Saturday

What is Sabi Saturday? We are glad you asked. Sabi Saturday is open the whole week for sharing. What should the posts be about? To answer that question go to Sabi Saturday .By clicking here, that will tell you everything you need to know. My Sabi Saturday Pictures is of an antique desk. My photo of my families antique desk.

Completion Of Book One

Hello And Welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. Honestly, I didn’t think I would be updating you this soon after the last book update. But as my luck would have it, here I am very excited, happy and pleased to tell you last night I completed Book One.🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️ Book One is entitled Turkey, Three Sweaters And Multiple Murders At Chris’s House. Book Two is entitled The Royal Verdict And The Royal Sentence. OH I am really excited. Yeah you read right there is going to be a book two. To be quite honest, it was either a real thick book or two books so I chose two books. So if the books ever get published, it will be in a two book set. Actually right now I’m celebrating by doing a happy dance and taking a break from my writing for one night.






Banana-Peanut Butter-Bacon Smoothie

I was on Bakin’ with Bacon in Baconia and I saw this smoothie recipe which looks good. Now you vegans and vegetarians out there, I am sure that you could make this smoothie without adding the bacon. The original recipe can be found at Banana-Peanut Butter-Bacon Smoothie. Below is the recipe.



1 container (6 oz) vanilla yogurt

1 banana, sliced

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup milk

3/4 cup ice cubes

2 slices crisp cooked bacon (you can use more) 


  • Place all the ingredients except bacon in blender. Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.

  • Pour into 2 glasses. Serve immediately with bacon slice placed in each glass.

If you try this recipe please let me know what you think of the smoothie.





Now most of you have heard me talk of meeting a wonderful lady, author, poet and activist Maya Angelou. If you are wondering, I met her many years ago when I was at a meet and greet. You see my college professor took the class over to see her. What I thought would be another boring class turned into a very interesting class and the start of me writing poetry on and off and now I am writing a book. You will hear more about that in the post. I think the one thing I did learn from her was to go for your dreams and if you really want to do it, you will work at it until you get it. 

Let me ask you all a question and please be honest with yourselves. Have you ever started a project that started out small like cleaning out a space in your garage, basement, kitchen, craft room, a writing project and etc….? I have. In fact just recently this happened to me.

Some of you may have noticed I haven’t blogged for a while. I assure all of you everything is fine(at least for now) with Queen Daisy Mae And I. I just made a post this Afternoon. Anyhow here’s why I haven’t blogged for a while. I have an author friend who I was trying to write a poem for as a gift from me and well to say the least the poem never happened but as I kept writing, I noticed it kept getting longer and longer. When I realized I had the starting of a book with someone else’s characters I stopped and emailed the author and explained what had happened. In the return email I received the biggest surprise. She gave me her blessing to keep writing. So that is what I have been doing. Writing my very first book. Until I am done I will be posting on and off. As of today, I am at 26,350 words. That’s Chapter 15. I’m more than half way to my goal. YEAH!!

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
