Our Blogging Journey

1. DaisyMae And I started our Blogging Journey well as a fluke. I kept getting all these pop ups and Ads about start blogging WordPress several times a day. I guess you could say we got tired of seeing these ads so we started blogging out of pure curiosity. That was 3 years ago soon to be 4 on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and we just celebrated our 4th year over atWELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) . You see, I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE (ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) first which was in Jan. 2017 and started CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE in April of 2017. I have contributed to other blogs and just started another blog this past year in 2020 on the Google/Blogger platform. My blog over there is calledTIGGER AND FRIENDS .

Clarity (A Print Book Review)

CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE'S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE

OUR CAMP NEAR THE WOODS IN 2017.

Welcome

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.

A Tribute To Tigger

CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE'S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE

Hi everyone, I write this post with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. You’re probably wondering why? My last Cat who was a rescue and a Grey striped Tabby Cat and Daisy Mae’s “Sister” not from the same litter left us 5 years ago on Sept. 11, 2015. I miss her daily. I thought to myself what would be an appropriate tribute to celebrate Tigger’s life then it was like a light bulb going off. I decided since it would be 5 years this year, I would ask someone who I knew who did drawings if they did commissioned drawings meaning do you do drawings for occasions if people ask? To my delight the answer was yes. So because I had never got a picture of both my cats together I asked if she could do the drawings from both pictures she said she could. I was delighted…

CRYSTAL’S ANSWERS

1.) I need haircut and a spa day Desperately.

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.

Hi everyone, How are you all among the Coronavirus deal?  I was talking with Mom Crystal and she said that she is going silent for a bit. No we are not quitting our 3 blogs at all.

My 1st No Sew Blanket

Hi Everyone, did you miss me? I’ve been sick since before Christmas so that’s one of the reasons I didn’t post. I got this neat Christmas gift. It’s called a No Sew Blanket with the design Snowman with the words Let It Snow. So what exactly is a No Sew Blanket? It’s a craft kit that comes with 2 blankets and you attempt to understand the directions(my definition). It took my youngest sister’s family to literally show me what to do because the directions weren’t clear—no surprise there. Below is a picture of the finished product.

Celebrating Veterans Day

If you celebrate Veterans Day, how do you celebrate? I celebrated Veterans Day by writing a poem thanking all Veteran’s and this Morning for the first time I watched my first naturalization ceremony coming live from Fox Square on Fox News. They swore in 12 new people who were becoming US Citizens. They said it was the first time they ever did a ceremony live. It was something to see. Although it did pose some questions after hearing the oath. You see the first thing you need to understand is all the people becoming US citizens today were in the service. The question I had here is how do you serve in service and you’re not a US citizen? Also, another question I had is everyone must show they know English unless exempt. Exempt??? Why would you need to be exempt knowing the English language if you’re becoming a US citizen and the US is now your loyalty? If you know please let me know. Thank You.

Faith

WHAT A PRETTY PICTURE IN THE FALL (2017).

Hi and Welcome Everyone, I’ve been doing a lot thinking and soul searching.  Then I thought you know I had a discussion with someone about Faith. We got to talking and this person said they never strayed from their faith. It didn’t click in at the time but after a while I got to thinking, if someone actually believes that and tells you they have never strayed from their faith well their is one thing you should know and that is they just strayed from their faith. Also you should know, everyone strays from their faith because there isn’t a perfect person on this earth. I wish you all the best.
