24 Days ‘Til Christmas…

chritsmas-tree-animated-gif

It’s 24 days until Christmas and I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet… Ahhhh….. What am I going to do? I know  what I’m getting 6 people, I just have to order it. As for my 4 Nieces  and 1 Nephew well I have no idea what I’m buying them. Since the four girls are either in college or just graduated from college, I’m going for something that is practical. As for my Nephew, he being 17 mentioned he needed a new wallet so I’m trying for that. Since they are getting gift cards or checks, I wanted something small for them to open. If you have any suggestions I am open to hearing. As nothing has been decided yet.

What are you getting your kids and/or Grandkids? Please tell me.

Daisy Mae’s Surprise Visitors

QUEEN DAISY MAE SLEEPING ON HER THRONE AND FEELING LIKE ROYALTY.

My Visitors:

Hi everyone Daisy Mae here, I’m here to tell you about our surprise visit we had a few days ago on our Front Porch. In the middle of the day, I heard something so I decided to check things out. I jumped up on the Credenza which I haven’t done since I was a kitten. Well lo and behold what did I see but 3 adorable and cute kittens playing on the Front Porch. Of Course, they weren’t as adorable and cute as me. Anyhow, my human Mom went outside on the Front Porch to shoo them away but instead the 3 kittens hid from my human Mom. The color of the kittens were 2 black and 1 yellow/brown/black — possibly a Calico but not sure.

The Result:

All 3 kittens eventually my human Mom went back inside the house. Then the next few days she kept checking the Front Porch until she was sure they were gone. Now I know this may seem trivial but she knew she couldn’t bring them in the house and she knew they couldn’t stay on the Front Porch. Thankfully the neighbor up the street feeds kittens and sometimes takes them in. Now understand this, my human Mom is animal lover but not crazy about snakes but there comes a time you just have to say no I can’t these kittens in. Heck the last time she and her family did that was way back when then got me and that was 13+ years ago. 

Our Hope:

Our hope is that these 3 kittens don’t freeze to do death out in the cold because they were not very old. They were old enough to know how to play with each other’s tails. That was really funny to watch. We can only guess who the kitty parents are. Sorry but no pictures.

Purrs And Prayers:

Please send all your purrs and prayers to my human Mom as she down with a real bad cold. She’s really not feeling well. The main reason why she isn’t posting and I am. She does hope to be posting by Thanksgiving or the week after.

Box Set Update: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series

Hi everyone and welcome. It’s been a while since I updated you on my progress of my box set I challenged myself to do and I’m happy and excited to say that I just finished Book 3 the other night. So what does that mean? It means I have  3 books of a 4 book box set complete. YAY ME!!

BOOKS COMPLETED

1.) Turkey, Three Sweaters And Multiple Murders At Chris’s House: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 1 

2.) The Royal Verdict And The Royal Sentence: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 2

3.) Queen Crystal, Chris And Penney’s Mysteries: So Many Babies And The Baby Surprise – The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 3

So what does this mean? My challenge is almost complete. Is my challenge worth it though? I think it is. When I started, I only thought I could write poems off and on then when I attempted this well I found out I could write books. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that was even possible.

So what have I learned through this experience and what can you learn from my experience? I’ve learned and hope you have too that if you really want to succeed at something, you will keep persisting and keep going until reach your goal or goals.

I wish you all success in reaching your goals you want to achieve. I know it’ll take a whole lot of hard work to attain them but trust me in the long run it’ll be worth it. GOOD LUCK!!

Should A Child Dream Big?

Introduction

Starting when we are young children our parents, our grandparents and even friends start asking us: What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a typical question and one that is apt to be asked sometime in your childhood. A young boy might say he wants to be a Contractor, a Fireman, a Doctor, a Lawyer then you have the girl who might say she wants to be a Nurse, a Doctor, a Teacher or Professor. However, in the world today, you might here a girl say she wants to be President, an engineer or some other jobs that is mostly dominated with men. So is it wrong for girls to think they can do a man’s job? Absolutely not.  In fact, some women might be able to do the man’s job better.

Should Children Dream Big?

So should children dream big knowing they might fail? Yes of course a child should dream big knowing they might fail. Why? Because dreaming big means challenging themselves and if they challenge them self well, who knows what they will achieve. If they fail, yes there will be disappointment but it’s not the end of the world. Also, failure should be considered a stepping stone that’ll get the child to a destination or goal they never thought of.

A Child’s Dreams VS. An Adult’s Dreams

When a child has dreams they are usually small to medium dreams. When that child becomes an adult, their dreams start to change and they even start dreaming bigger dreams. So is it healthy for a child to dream big with possible failure looming? Yes it is not only healthy but it challenges the child to go for what they want. In other words, go for all the gusto you can.

Examples Of A Child’s Dream 

1.) Fireman

2.) Contractor

3.) Lawyer

4.) Doctor

5.) President

The list goes on and on.

Examples Of An Adults Dream 

1.) Writer/Author

2.) Franchise Manager/CEO

3.) Teacher

4.) Nurse

5.) Doctor

6.) Lawyer

The list goes on and on. See any similarities between a Child’s dreams and an Adult’s dreams? Not to much difference is there?

So What Have We Learned?

That both children and adults should dream and their dreams should be big. Also, if you really want to do something and I mean really do something then I encourage you to go for it. It may not happen right away but it will happen. For example, it took me 51 years before I went for one of my dreams and I’m getting there slowly but in my past, I have been lucky enough to achieve other dreams as well. What are your dreams you want to achieve or have already achieved. I’m interested in hearing them whether big or small. Trust me, I will not judge you. To me any dream achieved is a huge accomplishment.

KEEP DREAMING FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Complete Virtue and Valor Series

I just finished several books but one book that really stood out in my opinion was the paperback version of The Complete Virtue and Valor Series by Hallee Bridgeman. *Please Note* I won this book in a random survey drawing from the author’s newsletter and this review is of my honest opinions. 

Before I get to my rating of the book, you must understand how I rate books. I don’t just read a book but I study, analyze, ask myself is this a fun book to read or serious book. Does it live up to the kind of book it’s suppose to be? Could it happen in today’s world? Does it have vulgar language, is it to graphic, what type of audience can read it? There are more questions I ask myself too. Now you know how I go about rating a book. Does my rating on a book ever change? Sometimes but not very often.

My rating for The Complete Virtue and Valor Series book is 5+ stars. It’s an excellent book. It’s 8 books in 1. Very well done


Goodreads Excerpt 

Eight serialized novellas, each inspired by real people and actual events, reveal the incredible story of amazing heroes and heroines facing the ultimate of bravery. In 1941 Great Britain a special war department assembles an experimental and exclusively female cohort and combat operatives consisting of four willing spies, a wireless radio operator, an ingenious code… To read more of the excerpt in depth go to The Complete Virtue and Valor Series Goodreads Link . Hallee Bridgeman did a fantastic job on writing these novellas based on real life events and real people.

I hope enjoy this book review. I also hope you read this book because I recommend it very highly.

**Full Disclosure** I won this book in a random survey drawing. This is a prize I’ll cherish forever.

2. I knew I was no longer a child when Oh this is a tough one. My feeling is even though I’m an adult I’m still a kid at heart and that has helped me through adulthood.

2. I knew I was no longer a child when I stopped doing zoomies.

3. I was shocked when I learned that I had some writing talent and when I met Maya Angelou for a class at a meet and greet when I was in college many moons ago.

4. I always feel frustrated when I try to cook something and follow the directions exactly but yet it doesn’t come out right.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2019

Welcome my wonderful readers. You may call me crazy after what happened to me today. You see when I woke up this Morning, I had this strange feeling. It was very strong. My mind was racing which is something because I’m not a Morning person. Then after breakfast, I saw 2 humming birds just there on my deck. Then after I read on several blogs it was Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2019. I knew what that strong feeling was. I was remembering my cat Tigger. 

None of you probably remember my Tabby Cat Tigger but may have read about her. You see, sadly Tigger earned her wings and went to Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015. A bitter sweet day. Bitter because my cat died and sweet because 9-11 would have been my Grandmother’s birthday if she hadn’t passed away a few years earlier. I miss my Grandmother and my rescue Tabby Cat Tigger. There are 2 pictures of my rescue Tabby Cat Tigger below. She’s now over the Rainbow Bridge and playing and teaching all the other animals that come after her.

A Strange Funeral

We all go to funerals in our lives for our family and friends. We also hope and pray that our children don’t die before us but life doesn’t always happen that way. 

I just recently went to a funeral since my Aunt died. This funeral was like no other. The funeral was held in the  dark since there was no electric. Toward the end of the end of the funeral and before the luncheon the lights came back on. The food had to heated up elsewhere. When I asked my parents why there was no electricity? They said, the power company had scheduled a power outage during the time of the funeral. When you don’t know it’s scheduled, it is really strange and weird.

What’s the strangest funeral you’ve been to? What’s the strangest thing that has ever happened to you? Let me know.
