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.
This is a picture of Sadie the cat who is in dire need of your help. If she doesn’t get the help she needs she will most likely die. The picture credit is from BriansHomeBlog.com and that’s who gets credit for this picture.
Please share and reblog this article so Sadie the cat gets the help she needs. If you use all your sharing resources she may be saved. PLEASE SAVE SADIE. Thank you In Advance For Your Help.
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.
WHAT I THOUGHT OF THE BOOK:
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.
IS THE TILE RIGHT FOR THE BOOK?:
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.
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.
I wasn’t sure what to do for Sparks on this wonderful Monday. Then it came to me, I would write an encouraging poem. As soon as I started writing the poem the words just came to me like I was writing a song. Have an encouraging Monday and rest of the week my blogging friends.

Hi and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I Daisy Mae have been busy getting my picture taken for my updated selfies. I worked so hard that I just had to stretch out the length of myself. Then I find out Sister Crystal is goofing off by dabbling in poetry. That didn’t really make me happy when she could be doing more worthwhile things than trying to write poetry.
OK, maybe I’m being a little hard on Sister Crystal but poetry really? I forgave her when I found out the poem she was writing was about me that’s right she was writing a poem about me. What could I do but forgive her. I also have a new appreciation for poetry.
Sister Crystal I’m really sorry.
Without further adieu, here is the poem Sister Crystal wrote about me. ENJOY!!>”<🙂>”<

We are here today because of The Pet Blogger Challenge. Having two sites that are devoted pets and animals is fun. I try to blog regularly especially on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. This site is about Photos, Blogging, Animals and Much, Much More.
LOOKING BACK ON THE YEAR 2017:
As I look Back on the year 2017 I find that like any blogger there were ups and downs. I started my blogging venture on January 9, 2017 for WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and in April 2017, I started CRYSTAL PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. As you might notice that CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE received a make-over, a new name and a new tag. CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE is now CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE‘S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and the tag has been updated to say PHOTOS, BLOGGING,FAMILY, ANIMALS, COUNTRY LIVING, POETRY AND MORE. Oh what an experience that has been. During 2017, I took 3 blogging courses from Blogging University to learn more about blogging.
QUESTIONS FOR THE PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE:
1.) For those who may be visiting your blog for the very first time, how long have you been blogging and what is your main topic? Since this is a combined post for both of my blogs, I will state both tag lines separately. For CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S SITE the site is about PHOTOS, BLOGGING, FAMILY, ANIMALS, COUNTRY LIVING, POETRY AND MORE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) is about FAMILY, COUNTRY LIVING, ANIMALS, PHOTOS AND MORE. WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING About Page can be found at https://daisymae2017.wordpress.com/about/ and MY ABOUT PAGE for CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE is at https://crystalsphotobloggingsite.wordpress.com/about/ .
3. Which of your blog posts was your favorite this year and why? What a tough question. I was honored in many ways in 2017 and I was grateful for that but my favorite posts have to be when KittyClysm honored both of my blogs as Pet Blogs.
4. In terms of your blog, how do you measure success? I tend to measure my blogs success by shares, views, reblogs, page views, comments and the people I meet online. I enjoy conversing with others by their blog or blogs.
5. In what ways has your blog changed in 2017? Both of my Blogs had a name change and my one blog, CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE had a complete makeover.
6.What was the biggest blogging challenge you overcame in 2017, and what did you learn that could help other bloggers? I had many challenges when I started blogging but the one thing I learned and would recommend to other bloggers and would-be bloggers out there is that before you start blogging you should:
Do research on Domain Sites.
Learn about the plans available(The cost).
Choose a site.
Once you’ve chosen a site, be smart and take blogging courses. WordPress has great blogging courses and the best part they are Free. WordPress blogging courses can be taken at Blogging University. To sign up or learn more go to: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/ .
7. When things get hard, what keeps you blogging? If I get blogger’s block, I dig deep because blogging is about writing from the heart. I also enjoy and have fun blogging.
8. Looking forward to 2018, what are you hoping to accomplish on your blog this year? On CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE I hope to hit 100 followers. Of Course I hope for a lot more. On WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I hope to reach 1000 followers and like my other site I hope to accomplish more than that.
9. In addition to what you’d like to accomplish, is here one specific skill you’d like to improve or master this year? Although there is many things I would love to master or improve upon, coding is the one thing I want to master this year.
10. Now it’s your turn! You have the attention of the pet blogging community – is there a question you’d like answered, or an aspect of your blog that you’d like input on? Share it here and we’ll answer you in the comments! Like Playful Kitty , I would like feedback on both of my blogs CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). Also, I would appreciate any suggestions as well. Another thing I want feedback on are my themes. They are both retired and WordPress wants them changed but they are willing to let me keep them since I used them before. What are your thoughts. Please note that I’m open to all suggestions
If you want to takeTHE PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE feel free to.
Hi everyone, Daisy Mae and I are here to update you on our Blog-hopping. Daisy Mae is over what she had and well I am 95% over what I had. Just when you think it’s over it comes back. Some of you may be able to relate to this. I have had this bad cold since I got my flu shot. Go figure.
I’m happy to say Daisy and I will be back to blog-hopping starting on January 7, 2018. Please be patient because it may take a few days to get to your blogs and answer your comments but I promise we will visit your blog.
Hello Everyone, Daisy Mae here and I’m excited. Today is Christmas Day and Day 25 Of Blogmas(which is the end of Blogmas.) I tried to do a selfie for Christmas but as you see above that didn’t work out so well.
My Christmas went well. I got to be with my family. However despite being a very good kitty all year I didn’t get everything on my Christmas list. I guess Santa Paws just couldn’t pull it off or he ran out of room in his sleigh.
I asked Sister Crystal If I could help with today’s blog post since it’s Christmas Day. Can you believe my sister did a post a day? I guess small miracles do happen.
These last 24 days she’s been busy writing about different things that usually happen around Christmas and some things that might help you around this time of year. I thought it was time for me to give her some help. Isn’t that nice of me?
I told Sister Crystal I would write the blog post today and give her Christmas off to relax.
This selfie worked out much better for me. I hope all you kitties and other animals got everything on your Christmas list. If you asked for a forever home well I really hope you got that. Every kitty and every animal deserves a forever home. I got my forever home over 11 years ago thanks to Sister Crystal and her family.
🎄🎄🎅🎅>”<>>”<>”<>”<>”<>”<🎅🎅🎄🎄Merry Christmas And Meowy Christmas Everyone.🎄🎄🎅🎅>”<>”<>”<>”<🎅🎅🎄🎄
Today is Day is Day 18 of Blogmas which means tomorrow at 11:30 PM Eastern Time, I will turn 50. Am I excited? you bet I am. I’m sure some of you thought I might be depressed. I’m not, I’m excited.
I have been on a personal countdown for more than a month. Having a birthday is fun and for those of you who hate birthdays well a birthday is just a number. In fact, a friend who I used to work with always told me starting at 50 she considered it years young not old plus she took her age and subtracted 1 year each time she had a birthday. Interesting isn’t it?
Today is the 16th day of Blogmas and honestly I was having writers block until I read my devotions this Morning. I thought how neat and interesting it would be if I wrote on the uniqueness of snowflakes. With winter here and some of got 5 to 7 inches of snow it’s interesting to just watch the snowflakes. So I decided to do Day 16 on Snowflakes(The Legend Of The Snowflake).
As people we are unique ourselves. None of us is alike and we all have different passions, different likes and different dislikes. Also, some of us like cats for pets, some like dogs for pets, some like like both cats and dogs and some like snakes. Yes I said snakes. Now that you know how unique we are let’s go onto snowflakes.
Snowflakes are unique too only in different ways. In fact there is not one snowflake that is alike. Even though some snowflakes are extra small, some snowflakes are small, some snowflakes are medium size and some snowflakes are big but all snowflakes are unique no matter what size they are. All snowflakes even taste different But despite that we are taught snowflakes are unique the question remains are they really? I did some research on this question and found some Links For The Uniqueness Of Snowflakes. I found it interesting and hope you do too.
I’ve added some of my own pictures as well of some images from the internet. ENJOY.
Now that your done Christmas shopping and hopefully stayed within your budget, It’s time to Elf Yourself. What do I mean by don’t forget to Elf Yourself? It means that when you’re done shopping for others and have money left over go buy yourself something to reward yourself or just because you deserve it. If you choose not to buy anything for yourself, you can always use the following ideas.
Put The Extra Money In Your Checking And/Or Savings Account.
Hide It Somewhere In Your House.
Give The Excess Money Away.
I remember when I was working I would start my Christmas shopping in January and have it completed by October. Now I start later like July and finish by the middle of December. A Big difference I know. At the end of the post I’m adding a contact form so you can let me know when you start your Christmas shopping and finish it. You can leave it in the comment section too.
Happy Christmas shopping and don’t forget to Elf yourself.
Last Christmas my sister and family brought a Gingerbread House kit for them and their cousins to put together. Was that ever a sight to see and hear. They did manage to put the gingerbread house kit together but realized to late and I mean to late they put it together wrong. In fact, it was after they had the house was already put together they realized this. Like I said way to late. No big deal it still looked good. Yes it is still standing to this day too. We have kept it in the freezer.
My 4 nieces and 1 nephew had fun trying to put it together. Oh the giggling we heard and the talking. It was so nice to have them together making something and knowing they were working together even made it better. A picture of the finished product is below.
You see the Stewart household is usually busy at Christmas and with 3 kids in college, 1 about to graduate high school and ready to go to college and 1 is still in high school. So getting together isn’t easy. We’re always thrilled when all of us can get together even if that means doing Christmas a day early. I love the laughter that goes throughout the house.

What Is A Supermoon?:
It’s the last full moon that occurred on December 3rd, 2017. It also is the last Supermoon or yule moon of 2017.
What Is The Supermoon Also called?:
The Supermoon is also called a Yule Moon, A Harvest moon and A Frost Moon. To learn how the moon got these names click on the link below. I suggest you do it’s interesting.
When Does The Supermoon Or Yule Moon Happen?:
The Supermoon or yule happens when the moon is closest to the earth and this time it will appear for 3 days (Friday to Monday).
How Large Will The Supermoon Be And How Bright Will The Supermoon Be?:
The full moon or Supermoon will be a mere 492 km (306 miles) away from Earth, making it appear 13.6% larger in diameter and 29% larger in the area. It will also appear 7% more intense and brighter because the Earth will be closest to the sun.
What Was It Like To Witness The Supermoon or Yule Moon?:
It was an awesome sight. It was not only beautiful but bright too. It was framed or surrounded with colors of pinks, reds, greens, blues and yellows. So pretty to witness. It could have been a beacon in the sky it was so bright. I took pictures from 3 different angles. One on Zoom, One on Medium Zoom and One from far away.
It was a beautiful, bright moon framed in color. How appropriate, a colorful frame for a big and bright moon that shined like beacon in the sky. Also if you get the chance, click on the provided link and read about the Yule moon and how it got it name. The history behind it is interesting. I really hope you click on the link to read it. You’ll see pictures of the moon that appeared on December 3, 2017 above.
You see this year I have reached another milestone in my life. I’m a half of a century old. That’s right, I’m 50 years old. I hope you all come over to both of my blogs to celebrate my birthday. I figure so what. Why? because I look at it this way 50 is only 14 in scrabble, 50 is 18 with 32 years experience and 50 is like 8 years in cat years.
I have to tell you all that for years I’ve been telling my family and everyone that mentions that I’m middle-aged that I’m not middle-aged to I’m 50. They laugh and call me the queen of denial. It’s just I don’t feel old or middle-aged and until I do, I won’t be middle-aged. 50 is just a number to me and I embrace every year as they come. I just feel fortunate to be celebrating another year and this year I want to celebrate my birthday with my blogging friends.

🎈🎈🎈I HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE AT MY MONTH – LONG BIRTHDAY PARTY.🎈🎈🎈
I wrote a short poem about my dog Shandar who died. I called it A TRIBUTE TO SHANDAR.
Shandar~You came into our lives as an Alaskan Malamute puppy dog~Your dad was a champion and a Kal-Kan dog~You were the runt of the litter~You were a possible show dog~And not Expected to get as big as you got. ~ You took us for walks~You pounced on our beds and Pillows ~Chewed blankets ~ But all in all~You were a dog with a good disposition.
Shandar~You will be sadly missed but not forgotten~ You are forever in our hearts and Always be.~ Thank you for the many years of love and being our pet.~They were not only joyous~But they were also a blessing.
Please forgive the yellowing around the edges of this picture. On 11-9-1989, I drew this picture of my dog who passed away. I thought it was a fitting tribute to her.
I named this picture A Pleasant Surprise because my nephew and his family thought the deer ate all his sunflowers. As it turns out, some of those sunflowers still bloomed. He was thrilled because he put a lot of work into planting them.
Below is the result of lots of hard work by this 15-year-old.
Deer like most animals~Like to eat~In Fact if you feed Deer, you will probably not only end up feeding the Deer~But you will end up~Feeding other animals too.~When you Feed Deer~The Deer will eventually get to know you~And become Friendly to the Place~Where you can almost walk up to them.~Always remember,~Deer are still wild Animals~And still have instincts~That were born right in them~So always be careful~No Matter what~And to make it more interesting~You might want to get a Game Camera to Watch the Deer~And what else might come along.
Poem By: Crystal Stewart(2017)
The pictures above are my Dad and his deer and other animals he feeds. We are blessed and love the fact we can enjoy Deer up close and personal.
*Note* Game Cameras make good Security cameras along with regular Security cameras.
