As most of you know, I tried to write a poem for a friend but the poem never developed in fact, I ended up writing my first book which was very unexpected and surprising. If you didn’t get a chance to read my post or maybe want to just to refresh your memory you can do so by going to MY ACCIDENTAL WRITING PROJECT. I do hope you click this link.
I have made a lot of progress since I last posted about my writing project. The last time I reported I was at 26,350 words. However as of 3-15-2019, I am now at 51,420 words. I haven’t decided yet but there may be a book two or I may put that book in with this book and they’ll be together. But if I do that, that will be one thick book. If I ever decide on a Book 2, I think it will be called The Royal Sentence. I’m really excited that I’ve gotten this far. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll see my published. That would be a dream come true.
I’m already living part of my dream. For those of you who have big dreams or even small dreams, keep dreaming and working your way toward them. You never know when they’ll come true.
NEVER GIVE UP!!!!
I am very frustrated right now. I just tried to reply to your comments and your blogs but for some reason WordPress is having technical difficulties. Gravatar is not even up and over at the Forum they tell you not to make anymore threads on this problem. So I ask all of you for your patience since it will probably be a while to I answer you. Please accept my apologies for this inconvenience. It’s not my fault it is WordPress’s. I will be posting this post on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). Thanks Again for your patience.

Hello and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I having some unsettling news I feel all bloggers should know about. I know how hard all of us bloggers work on our content then to find out somebody may be stealing it. It’s just horrible just horrible.
How did I find this information out? I follow Basil’s Blog and get updates almost daily. When I read this before their main post, I was in shock and knew I had warn other bloggers. Basil’s Blog did provide the website and the site to check it is: Petzilia.
What you can do. Ask them to take the content down but be forwarned, Basil’s Blog has tried that and were unsuccessful. Petzilia continued to steal content. Good Luck getting your content to be taken down if it was stolen.
Here’s a selfie of a kitty cat surprised to get its picture on “Kitty Camera”. I’m not sure if this cat was trying to make a quick get a way since it’s a “cat burglar”. HAHA, LOL.

Welcome everyone. I’m back for another edition of my famous Cat quotes. Those you’ll find below.
1.) Cats’ hearing apparatus is built to allow the human voice to easily go in one ear and out the other.
2.) A cat sees no good reason why it should obey another animal, even if it does stand on two legs.
3.) Many cats simply pounce to their own drummers.
4.) Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
5.) Cats keep their cool, no matter what. Even when they do things like fall or lose their balance, they’ll walk away with an attitude that seems t o say, “I meant to do that.”
6.) Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds.
7.) A cat will do what it wants when it wants, and there’s not a thing you can do about it.
8.) There are hundreds of good reasons for having a cat, but all you need is one.
9.) If cats seem distant and aloof it is because this is not their native planet—they are here just to visit and dominate.
10.) The cat always leaves a mark on his friend.
11.) Nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as cats do.
12.) There is one way in which cats differ from all other animals, and that is in the effect they have on human beings.
13.) A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatsoever and generally stopping before it gets there.
14.) To bathe a cat takes brute force, perseverance, courage of conviction—and a cat. The last ingredient is usually hardest to come by.
15.) I don’t mind a cat, in its place. But its place is not the middle of my back at 4 a.m.
—Maynnard Good Stoddard
16.) You are my cat, and I am your human.
17.) Cats never feel threatened. They are genetically incapable of accepting that anyone could possibly dislike anything as perfect as a cat.
18.) Personally, I don’t believe felines are a fad. We’re here to stay.
—Morris the Cat

LAUGHTER THE BEST MEDICINE
The world needs laughter and humor in this world and comics about the Rise of the Superheroes brings that. This helps cheer you up whether you need it or not.
When they say laughter is the best medicine they are not kidding. It is something we are in dire need of with all the evil in this world.
Our people who have mental disease or are just plain depressed should start reading and looking at comics and they might find it might help them.
Am I a doctor? No but I do know laughter helps. If you smile at someone when they are down or mad they will most likely wonder what you are up to not to mention that you get more wrinkles when you frown than when you smile. Also it is easier to smile and doesn’t put as much pressure on your jaw. Would I recommend this book from the excerpt? Yes.

BLOGGER RECOGNITION TAG
Usually when you see a tag what’s the first thing that crosses your mind? Well if you’re anything like me, 2 things cross my mind. They are:
- Why so many links?
- What, another tag?
I’ve done several tags and if you want to see them you can go to AWARDS. I know the reason or at least I think I do why some don’t do awards and tags and that’s because of so many links, posts and etc… I’ll be honest, I hate the links but don’t mind posting. So Daisy Mae and I(mostly me) came up with an award/tag that has very little stipulations. It’s great (or at least I think so) so I hope you like our tag. Nothing fancy but we don’t want you want you to be disappointed if we don’t give it to you right away because we’ve got so many to give to were doing it monthly(or at least try that). Below is what our Award/Tag looks like.
We hope to start giving this award out either tonight or sometime tomorrow. This Award/Tag is to recognize all those good bloggers out there. We have 3 stipulations and you’ll find them below.
- Give this Award to at least one blogger.
- link to me when you give the award to some other blogger.
- Put #CRYSTALANDDAISYMAE’SRECOGNITIONAWARD if you do a post or share.
That’s all you have to do. Easy. No posting. You only have to do a post if you want to.
This is our first time to make an Award/Tag of our own so hope everyone likes it. Keep in mind this Award takes in both of my sites so no one should feel left out.

Happy Friday The 13th everyone.
Hello Everyone Daisy Mae here since Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal(Boy that’s a mouthful to say). Glad Queen Mom doesn’t make me say that all the time. Since the Queen Mom taught me to blog so I can take over when I’m needed. I had hoped that time wouldn’t come for a long, long time but sadly wouldn’t you know the Queen Mom came sooner than I hoped. The Queen Mom came and asked me last month and of course I said I would help out by taking over.
Why isn’t the Queen Mom here you ask? She got sick a few months back and finally recovered then wouldn’t you know she gets sick again—BUMMERAMMA!! Enough about the Queen Mom and let’s get on with why I’m here. I’m here for DAISY MAE’S CAT QUOTES. YEAH!!!! One more thing, Don’t be angry with the Queen Mom(AKA Sister Crystal) if she doesn’t get to visit your blog for a while. She’s sick so she has a good excuse. Please Give Her A Break. ENJOY!!
The cat is the only animal which accepts the comforts but rejects the bondage of domesticity.
Comte de Buffon
I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.
A cat has a reputation to protect. If it had a halo, it would be worn cocked to one side.
One must love a cat on its own terms.
There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.
The real measure of a day’s heat is the length of a sleeping cat.
—Charles J. Brady
As we all know, cats rule the world.
—John R.F. Breen
When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.
—Percy Bysshe Shelley
Cats are kindly masters, just so long as you remember your place.
A cat does not want all the world to love her—only those she has chosen to love.
The last thing I would accuse a cat of is innocence.
A cat is more intelligent than people believe and can be taught any crime.
Nothing makes a house cozier than cats.

This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.
WHO NOMINATED ME AND MY THANKS
I was nominated by Andrea from The Perks of being Different . I thank her from the bottom of heart for this great award. I’m glad she thinks so much of my blog. What a great compliment this is especially coming from another great blogger.
ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME
- Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters.
- Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
- Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
- What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
- Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
- What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
- Cat >”<
- Graduation Girl 👩🎓
- Santa Clause 🎅
- Comedy Plus
- McGuffy’s Reader.com
- The Recipe Hunter
- Catlady from Austria
- Bluefish Way
- Front Seat Ryder
- Happiness Between Tails by da-AL
- Cat Chat With Caren And Cody
- The Blessing of Animal Companions
- Animals Are Feeling Beings Too
- Pets Overload
If I did not nominate you it’s not because I don’t think you deserve this award but because I have so many people I think do deserve this award so if I didn’t nominate you above and you want to do this award/tag feel free to. I just went with the first 15 I could think of. Also, don’t panic if you can’t think of 15 nominees, that’s OK because you only need to nominate 5+ bloggers. I went a little crazy.

Hi everyone, I’ve been having technical problems AGAIN!! I got a new theme for both of my blogs WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and now no notifications, Like Buttons or Sharing Buttons. I hope WordPress gets it fixed soon. I’m here to ask you kindly to please check out my projects. Click on the words All Projects then above my header which is Daisy Mae for both sites. When you click on All Projects squares will show up. How many squares will be a ? because it’ll depend on how many projects I have on each blog. My new theme supports testimonials but I won’t enable that until I get some. Once the squares come you’ll see the featured images. Go to the one you want to view and hopefully WordPress has the Sharing and Like Buttons there so you can Like and Share. If by some chance you got notified my project was published last night and you saw nothing, I really am sorry for that. I do hope you check my projects out. I sure would appreciate it.
HELLO AND WELCOME
Hello and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you all I had to make some changes to my both of my WordPress sites since I just started getting Spammed/Trolled by a website I’m not even interested in.
CHANGES I MADE
- From now on, I will be approving/disapproving comments. Most comments will be approved. The only difference is they won’t be approved right away.
- I have Blacklisted 2 websites. This was a last resort.
WHY I MADE THE CHANGES
I made the changes because I got SPAMMED/TROLLED. This just started happening and I hope the 2 websites stop.
If you are a follower or regular reader, you most likely aren’t blacklisted. I hated going this way but it was the only way other going totally private. I hope you keep coming and reading to both of my sites. If you need to know the sight please use the contact form to ask me and I will give it to you.
Thanks In Advance for your patience. I do hope you keep coming to my sites and keep reading. Once again, the Blacklisted sites are sites that came to my sites because I liked a comment on someone’s website(not the blacklisted sites). Once again the sites that are blacklisted are the SPAM/TROLLED WEBSITES.
