MILLIE WITH A STATUETTE OF A CAT THAT LOOKS A LOT LIKE PRANCIE.

Millie

Millie, you were a beautiful and 

Smart White Cat that was born

In the Mill Yard but despite that you

Somehow survived and found your 

Furrever home with a loving family.

Millie, you were a special cat in

More ways than one. You had one 

Blue eye and one green eye. You

Lived a full and active life.

It was so sad and we were

Devastated when we found out

You earned your wings to go over

The Rainbow Bridge but before you

Went over the Rainbow Bridge, we

Made many memories that we’ll

Cherish and treasure of you. We will

Always love you and miss you. We

Loved you so much that you left

Pawprints on our hearts.

Millie, you have become an angel

And aren’t miserable or suffering in

Pain anymore and are romping with

Other cats and other pets now.

Millie sweet kitty cat, you are now

An angel and will be sadly missed.

So when a Monarch Butterfly shows

Up with its beautiful wings know

That it’s your sweet Millie

Coming to check on you and your 

Family. When you see more than one

Beautiful Monarch Butterfly don’t

Worry because that is your sweet

Millie With all the friends

She’s met.

You will know when you see see a

Bunch of Butterflies,

A flock of Birds, Hummingbirds

Staying together

As if to say I’m here for you and

Don’t be to upset or mad because it

Rains or Snows. You see the Rain

And 

The Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it rains and snows

That’s me Angel Millie sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make you and the family OK.

Millie, thank you for all the

Memories.

You left pawprints on our hearts.

THE BONDS WE HAVE ARE

EVERLASTING!!

 

 

 

My 1st No Sew Blanket

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.

Is Santa Claus Real? (The History Of Santa Claus)

Welcome & Introduction:

Welcome to all my readers and Merry Christmas to you to. Have any of you asked the question, what if Santa Claus were a real person? Well I’m here to let you all in on  a Christmas secret. Santa is a real person. We think when we tell our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews that you better be good because Santa Claus is coming to town. Do we really think we can pull the wool over their eyes or is it just easier for them  to believe? Do you know it’s easier for a child to believe in Santa Claus than it is for an adult to believe in Santa Claus? Let’s take a look at that from a Child’s point of view and an adult’s point of view.

History Of Santa Claus:

I was so interested in finding out if Santa Claus was real or a figment of our imagination. Well I checked on the internet and lo and behold I found my answer. Would you believe Santa Claus is a real person. I can already hear some of you saying Yeah Right.

Did you know the legend of Santa Claus can be traced back hundreds of years to to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D. He was much admired for his piety and kindness, St. Nicholas became the subject of many legends. It is said that he gave away all his inherited wealth and traveled the countryside helping the poor and the sick. One of the best-known St. Nicholas stories is the time he saved three poor sisters from being sold into slavery or prostitution by their father by providing them with a dowry so they could be married. 

Over the course of many years, Nicholas’s popularity spread and he became known as the protector of children and sailors. His feast day is celebrated on the anniversary of his death, December 6. This was traditionally considered a lucky day to make large purchases or to get married. By Renaissance, St. Nicholas was the most popular saint in Europe. Even after the Protestant Reformation, when the veneration of saints began to be discouraged, St. Nicholas maintained a positive reputation, especially in Holland. 

Fun Fact:

Did you know? The Salvation Army has been sending Santa Claus-clad donation collectors into the streets since the 1890’s. 

From A Child’s Point Of View:

From a child’s point of view Santa Claus is real. To them a “fat guy” in a red suit giving good little good girls and boys extra presents on Christmas Eve(December 24) is like hitting the jackpot. They don’t think much about what they have to until closer Christmas. Then one day some kid spoils it for them and says Santa Claus isn’t a real person. Well guess what children? Keep writing those letters to Santa Claus and keep believing in Santa Claus because he is real.

From An Adult’s Point Of View:

As we get older and grow into an adult, we seem to find it harder to believe in Santa Claus than a child. To an adult, telling a child you better be good or Santa Claus won’t come is a good way to motivate a child to do things. So if an adult must be a kid at heart to believe in Santa Claus which is possible because I’m an adult and a kid at heart too and yes I still believe Santa Claus.

So What Have We Learned?:

We have learned Santa Claus is real, It’s easier for a child to believe in Santa Claus than an adult, Don’t spoil your kid’s fun and tell them Santa Claus isn’t real just let them believe and an adult must be a child at heart to believe in Santa Claus.

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.

THANK YOU VETERANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you to all the veterans, their families, active military and to those who paid the ultimate price. It is because of you and your predecessors who fought and still fight for freedom.

Below the last picture, you’ll find a poem thanking all veterans. Hope you read it. Because if you’re like me then you’ll feel the same way I do. My dad is a veteran so yes, saying thank you to a veteran means a lot.

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!!
