Sparks Monday

My encouraging words for the week will be on strength. We all need strength to get through each day and I don’t mean the  weight lifting kind of strength. I get through each day by asking God each Morning just to give me the strength to get through the day and it does help. Below are 2 of many of my favorite Bible verses.


What gives you strength to get through the day? Let me know by using the Contact Form or by using the comment section.

Update On Sadie

As many of you know I asked you to share, share and share some more. I asked you to do this because it might help a blind cat who weighs only around 5 pounds. I’m here with an update on sweet Sadie. She is still alive but the outlook is very grim I’m sad to say. I have been just told she may only have a week left before Sadie crosses the Rainbow Bridge. If you know someone who wants a pet and is willing to give them a forever home. Please ask them to give Sadie a forever home. This cat deserves it.

Choosing A Watch And Other Accessories To Go With Your Clothes

DSCN0423I received an e-mail from Jesse Miller and she told me that she was searching the web for information on choosing a watch when she saw a great post on my site. That post link she thought was so great was Cat Christmas Gifts and Giveaway .

She asked me if I would mention her Watch Site in one of my posts since I liked her site. Because she asked if I would share her link in one of my posts, She gave me the inspiration to write this post.

No I’m not the fashion police or a fashion expert. However, I do have 18 years of working at a department store. Working at a department store you certainly get an eye-opening experience working with the public, the people who are your co-workers and your bosses.

As we all know  what clothes we wear are very important. Why? Let’s think about that for a few minutes. Whether you are going to an interview, Out with friends, Going out with your wife or significant other or maybe a Meeting with your Boss, you want to look your best. You certainly wouldn’t wear sweats and a sweatshirt if you want to look your best.

Just as clothes are important so are the accessories and jewelry you wear with your clothes. Wearing a necklace, rings, earrings, bracelet, anklet, toe-ring and of course your watch. What does accessories do for the clothing? Jewelry can not only make clothes stand out but it can make an outfit pop. A good example of how jewelry and accessories can help make our clothes look better is if you notice two people out for the evening one is wearing jewelry and one isn’t. Who’s outfit do you notice first? Is it the person who is wearing jewelry or is it the person who isn’t wearing jewelry? So I stress wearing jewelry and accessories do help the outfit. That also includes outerwear. Below are some pictures of outerwear and accessories to match.


As I’m sure you noticed, I mentioned wearing a watch. But what kind of watch are you going to wear? Are you going to wear a watch with a plastic and colorful band, A watch with a clear band, A watch made into a ring or necklace, A Stainless steel Band or my favorite The stretchy band on a Man’s watch. Below are pictures of different types of watches.

Here is the detailed post on choosing a watch called How to Choose a Watch, According to Science – 8 Factors to Consider which  I checked out and found it very interesting.  I suggest you check her post and site out.

The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties Book Review


Around My Birthday and Christmastime, I was fortunate to win a book by Courtney Livingston called The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties.  Now I can only imagine what you all must be thinking. Why would a 50-year-old want to read a book that is mostly geared toward the people in their twenties? Interesting question which deserves an interesting answer. I wondered the same thing until I started reading the book. Despite the book’s title this book is for everyone not just twenty year olds.


This book was in my opinion fantastic. It was not only geared for our young people in their twenties but the points and ideas that were made could be used by everyone. The ideas about health, exercising, finances and much, much more. I found the book interesting and helpful to all who read it.


I will answer this question with a yes. Why is it right? I think the title is right even though this book applies to everyone the title The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties is right in my opinion because when you start young like in your twenties it help you continue the habits when you get older.


That’s an easy question. Anyone who can read.


You can find Courtney Livingston at her blog which is on The Smart Girl’s guide to Surviving Her Twenties. This is a great blog so go and check it out.


The book The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties can be bought at The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties(Amazon.com) .


Once you’ve bought and read this book, Courtney Livingston and Crystal Stewart kindly ask you to write a review at amazon.com and give your honest opinion. Also we would appreciate if you link to our blogs Courtney Livingston and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and also  at Amazon.com.

I was given permission to write this review and snap a couple of photos by Courtney Livingston who is the Author of the book I just reviewed. Also, I won the book through a contest on Courtney Livingston’s blog so this book was not given to me to do this review.
