Hello Everyone and thanks for stopping by, Today my Nephew turns 20 no more a teenager but now a college student and in a Fraternity. Also, I want to wish my baby Daisy Mae a very happy 16th birthday. I still remember the night my parents and I found her. They had just brought me home from work and as soon as you opened the car door, all you could hear was this very loud meowing which we of course followed and low and behold we found this beautiful very loud kitten with lungs like you would not believe that we guestimated was about 4 weeks old and fit in the palm of your hand. We fed her, gave her something to drink and a nice warm place to stay and it was funny in a way because her Mama who dropped her off kept coming around until she was…

Book 2: The Miracle Of True Love Finally Completed

CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE'S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE

Double accomplishment and I can’t believe I did it but I did, you see not only have I completed one book in 2022 but two and started a third. Book 1 which is entitled When Love, Murder & Rejection Collide. Book 2 is entitled The Miracle Of True Love Finally Hits The Bulls Eye. I can’t tell you how happy and thrilled I am of these two accomplishments now to figure out a title for book three. I have several title possibilities but the one I’m leaning towards is Power VS. Love… Which One Wins Out? What do you think.

When I was writing Book 2, I had a pretty good idea what type of book I wanted it to be but guess what Yepers that is right my characters took over and they had other ideas so Book 2 ended up steamier and hotter than I’d planned but I…

Are Book Excerpts & Trigger Warnings Really Necessary?

CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE'S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE

SEX, SEX, SEX, SEX… Now that I got everyone’s attention, let’s talk about the subject of my post today which is are book excerpts and trigger warnings really necessary?

I have always wondered are book excerpts and trigger warnings really necessary when you can look at the book cover. My opinion & conclusion is a resounding YES. You are probably wondering why? first you have to decide how do you decide to buy a book?  Is it by the cover, the excerpt, by reviews or all of the above. Me personally, I am one of those people who look at a book cover then decide and only read the book sometimes. I learned the hard way don’t trust reviews. I will use an example that happened to me this past week and it was: I like to read that’s not a secret so I follow book sites to get…

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

First Offwhen you’re thinking about bringing another pet into your family, there are several important suggestions/pointers I have about doing that. So what are they you ask? Below are a few I have and you may be able to think of some others too. Now on to those pointers/suggestions.

Point #1Always consider where you’re living – Are you in an apartment, Pet friendly apartment or a house?

Point #2When you think you’ve made a decision but you have a family, always take your idea to the family. In other words, call a family meeting and tell them what you want to do then talk it over as a family and let the children know that their ideas will be considered.

Point #3When you’re decision has been made to…

It’s been year as of April 222022. That’s right when all this chaos and life hit my family and life hit my family and I. You see, it all started a few days before April 22, 2021 and then my youngest sister visited to see how everyone was and if we needed anything. I remember to this day what both Dad and I were doing. Dad was mowing and I was picking up sticks to make it easier to mow. We both had started having symptoms but they could be written off as something else or no big deal. The week before, we had scheduled our first vaccine shot for April 22 but that never happened because we were both diagnosed with COVID at Faster Care. Since then, my Dad was in and out of the hospital at least 4 different times and believe it or not…

Neither one thought anything about it because Dad was out mowing and Crystal picking up sticks so they blamed it all…
