Flower Friday: Helleborus aka Winter Rose or Lenten Rose

I discovered Flower Friday last year while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pictures and information. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Today’s flower is one I’ve been waiting to share for many months now. It’s Helleborus aka Winter Rose or Lenten Rose and it only blooms in winter!

Usually, ours bloom in February when we have a mild winter, but this winter has been so arctic. Our plants finally bloomed mid-April.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Win a Print Copy of Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage #giveaway #bookgiveaway

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

BabyTeeth_BlogBanner (1).png

Blurb: Sweetness can be deceptive. 

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.

Wednesday’s Breakfast and a Book – Papaya Smoothie Bowl – Shadow Weaver by MarcyKate Connolly

Today I decided to make a smoothie bowl for the first time. I have no idea what took me so long, but these seem to be all the craze, so I went with Anthony William on this recipe. He shares this smoothie bowl and other recipes on his website. You can also find this recipe in the Life Changing Foods book I’m currently reading.

Shabby Sunday: Free for the Eating by Bradford Angier – 1966

collage-2017-08-10-5

Shabby Sunday

I have a lot of old vintage books and one of my plans when I first started blogging was to do a post every week or so that shared one of my cherished vintage books. Then I thought there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share. I decided to start a weekly meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share? If so, please feel free to participate as anyone can join. Feel free to use the picture I’ve provided if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me so that I can see the book you’re sharing.


Today’s Shabby Share is:

Free for the Eating

20180415_101102.jpg

Summary:

A nature study cookbook adding dimension and variety to meal time for rural, suburban or big-city dwellers. Nature’s unhandled, unspoiled foods for the housewife and the camper. Thrifty conversation-piece delicacies — free for the eating! Includes wild fruit, wild greens, wild roots and tubers, wild nuts, and centuries-old brews to quaff from wild beverage bushes.

My thoughts on this book:

Free for the Eating is an old book from 1966 that I picked up from a local barn sale about four years ago. I just happened to come upon this sale where an older woman had boxes and boxes of old books she was selling for next to nothing. I was really surprised to come across this bright green book with the text,

“100 WILD PLANTS 300 WAYS TO USE THEM… backyard and wilderness banqueting on nature’s bounty of edible wild plants.”

20180415_101122.jpg

I ended up buying it for 10 cents and what a steal! It’s in pretty good condition with its original dust jacket. Sure, there are tons of modern books available today that share the use of wild plants with vivid colored photos, and I do appreciate those, but what I like about this one is that it’s pocket-sized and easy to read with just the right amount of information.

Meet The Reader Series with Chanel (Nel)

Hey everyone! I haven’t been keeping up with the Meet The Reader series lately and I apologize for that, but I’m so excited to share a special reader with you today!

I’m always looking for friends on Goodreads that have similar tastes. I like learning about books and discussing them with others, so I decided to experiment with an idea and thought it would be neat to find readers that I’m friends with on Goodreads or blogs and share them with you. Maybe they might be someone you’d like to add too? As I find readers with an interest, I’ll introduce them.


This is a reader that I met through WordPress and many of you already know her, but she’s become a very close friend and I can’t wait to share her reading adventures with you! Hope you enjoy!

Rant: It’s MY Review and There Aren’t Laws!

A few months ago I received a message from a very angry woman who wasn’t pleased with my opinions on a book I’d recently reviewed. She was upset with me for multiple reasons, but mainly because I called the characters flat and spoiled (she misread the spoiler and thought that I was calling the characters spoiled). She also said that I should’ve put some thought into my review before I wrote it and that I was completely wrong.

giphy (3).gif

I’m not going to lie–it upset me a little–and I messaged her back to kindly tell her that these were my thoughts and my HONEST opinions on the book. I also explained that I’m entitled to my own thoughts and opinions just as she is to hers. I pointed out that she read my spoiler title incorrectly and that I simply called the characters flat and the story boring.

It really got me thinking and now I’ve seen some people talk about how book reviews should be written. This is just adding more stress because now we are talking about how a review should be written and not just our personal tastes. This bothers me.

Music Monday: The Temper Trap “What If I’m Wrong” & The Stylistics “Betcha By Golly Wow”

-Music Monday-

This meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday. I love this meme and look forward to sharing a new song every week!

musicmonday

I came across this song on Pandora the other day by The Temper Trap that literally fascinated me. Falling in love with music is such a wonderful experience. I kept hearing all these different groups in the song like Coldplay and Twenty One Pilots, but I couldn’t put my finger on who the singer, Dougy Mandagi, reminded me of…

I was thinking Philip Bailey from Earth, Wind, and Fire, or Barry Gibb from the Bee Gees, and even Aaron Neville at one point, but those weren’t right. I finally pinpointed it and got stuck on YouTube for hours listening to The Stylistics with Russell Thompkins Jr. You can watch this video below from Soul Train– a show I used to watch as a kid. See what you think. I started the song right when he begins to sing, although this entire ten minute video is worth watching, especially when they interview the group with the audience.


Two very awesome groups. Here are the lyrics for the songs below:

What If I’m Wrong

Feelings that everyone’s livin,’
To a different kinda wall.
I feel nano sense skipping,
Tangled up in my own thoughts.

‘Harley on’, they’re just rainin’,
Rest their motto, “wha’ we got?”.
Try to look into the mirror,
Scared of what I may find out.

I must believe,
I must believe.
I need to live,
Not just exist.

What if I’m wrong,
What if I’m wrong.
What did I know,
What if I’m wrong.

Why must these ‘specials’, have feelings,
Why must I live in inside.
I wrestle with my raging ailing,
Lately, I have lost my fire.

I must believe,
I must believe.
I need to live,
Not just exist.

What if I’m wrong,
What if I’m wrong.
What did I know,
What if I’m wrong.

What if I’m wrong,
What if I’m wrong,
Hold-a my hand.
Is the water so cold?

What if I’m wrong,
Is the water so warm?
It’s all that I know,
What have we sold?

What if I’m wrong,
What if I’m wrong.
What if I’m wrong,
What if I’m wrong.

Betcha By Golly Wow

There’s a spark of magic in your eyes
Candyland appears each time you smile
Never thought that fairy tales came true
But they come true when I’m near you
You’re a genie in disguise
Full of wonder and surpriseAnd betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strongIf I could I’d catch a falling star
To shine on you so I’ll know where you are
Order rainbows in your favorite shade
To show I love you, thinking of you
Write your name across the sky
Anything you ask I’ll try, `causeBetcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strong

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strong

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you

After a crazy weekend and Monday, I’m super late posting for Music Monday today. I probably should’ve skipped this week, but I’d like to share this song by Sia that I learned about recently after watching “My Little Pony: The Movie” with my kids. I fell in love with it right away. Sia’s voice just really gets into my soul and these lyrics are beautiful. Hope you enjoy.

Sia

“Rainbow”

 

Lyrics:
I know you

You’re a special one
Some see crazy, where I see love
You fall so long
But soar so high
Big dreamer, shoot for open sky
So much life in those open eyes
So much depth, you look forward to life
When your wounds open
You will cry
Cry, oh no, and you’ll question why
 
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as they’re fallin’ down
I can see your soul grow, uoo
Through the pain as they hit the ground
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as the sun comes out
As the sun comes out
 
I am here
And I see your pain
Through the storms
Through the clouds, the rain
I’m telling you
You cannot escape
You can do it
Just feel, baby
 
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as they’re fallin’ down
I can see your soul grow, uoo
Through the pain as they hit the ground
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as the sun comes out
As the sun comes out
 
Here comes the sun
Smiling down
Here comes the sun
Smiling down
Here comes the sun
Smiling now
Smiling now
 
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as they’re fallin’ down
I can see your soul grow, uoo
Through the pain as they hit the ground
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as the sun comes out
As the sun comes out
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as they’re fallin’ down
I can see your soul grow, uoo
Through the pain as they hit the ground
I can see a rainbow
In your tears as the sun comes out
As the sun comes out

Today I chose to share larkspur–another easy flower to grow from seed.

I started growing this flower in our butterfly garden four years ago and it comes back by reseeding itself every year abundantly with little to no care! The version I grow is titled “cloudy skies” and blooms in purple, blue, and white.

Wednesday’s Breakfast and a Book: Life-Changing Foods by Anthony Williams – Medical Medium – Fruit!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well today. I’m not reading any new books this week because I’m still finishing Happily by Chauncey Rogers, so I thought I’d share one that I’m rereading after making the decision to purchase. It’s Life-Changing Foods by Anthony William. ❤

fruit.png

In late 2016 I started reading Life-Changing Foods by Anthony Williams. I picked up the book instantly at my local library after seeing the cover and reading the summary. I read through the foods and recipes without paying much attention to the author’s story. It wasn’t until I read Thyroid Healing that I understood more about who the author was and where he was coming from as a medical medium.  Continue reading “Wednesday’s Breakfast and a Book: Life-Changing Foods by Anthony Williams – Medical Medium – Fruit!”

Lessons From Grandpa #7 – Food Addiction and Moderation

From a very young age I developed a love for food. I can still remember some of my very first experiences from being fascinated by the taste of birthday cake and fried chicken to grilled meats. In this picture below from 1982 you can see how I’m shoving my mouth with birthday cake and some sort of reddish concoction. I have no idea what’s up with the box of Domino sugar, but hopefully I wasn’t eating that too. I developed a bad relationship with food from a very young age.

Music Monday: Cake “Short Skirt Long Jacket”

-Music Monday-

This meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday. I love this meme and look forward to sharing a new song every week!

musicmonday

Yesterday for Shabby Sunday I talked about an old vintage songbook that I still have from 1975. It belonged to my grandfather and he used to sing songs from it when I was a kid. I was reflecting back on some of the old music from his time and remembered how he mentioned multiple times that music had changed. He wasn’t pleased with very many new artists and when he didn’t have his favorites to listen to, he resolved to listening to only newer artists like Carole King or Amy Grant. After chatting with my friend and author David Dowdy, we got on the subject of music and how much it has changed. I got to thinking about this song by Cake, because in the video they’re walking around asking many different people to listen to their song and to give their opinion on it. Everyone seems to have their own tastes and there were some really funny reactions.

Cake

“Short Skirt Long Jacket”

I personally do feel more attached to the music from the 80’s and 90’s era because it’s music I grew up with and music that connects with many memories. So I have to ask all you music lovers what you think about new music. Are you more attached to older familiar music, or do you still connect with just as many new songs? In your opinion, does music in general have the same level of talent it once had?


Lyrics:

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what’s best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who’s fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She’s playing with her jewelry
She’s putting up her hair
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnng jacket……

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass

She is fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnng…. lonnng jacket

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
At Citibank we will meet accidentally
We’ll start to talk when she borrows my pen

She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
She’s changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She’s trading her MG for a white Chrysler LeBaron

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnggggggggg jacket

The Secrets She Keeps by Michael Robotham – Book Review – #UltimateReadingChallenge March

The Secrets She Keeps

35692340

Summary:

In the bestselling tradition of The Girl on the Train and In a Dark, Dark Wood, from the internationally bestselling author whom Stephen King called “an absolute master” of the psychological thriller, comes a riveting suspense novel about the unlikely friendship between two pregnant women that asks: how far would you go to create the perfect family?

Agatha is pregnant and works part-time stocking shelves at a grocery store in a ritzy London suburb, counting down the days until her baby is due. As the hours of her shifts creep by in increasing discomfort, the one thing she looks forward to at work is catching a glimpse of Meghan, the effortlessly chic customer whose elegant lifestyle dazzles her. Meghan has it all: two perfect children, a handsome husband, a happy marriage, a stylish group of friends, and she writes perfectly droll confessional posts on her popular parenting blog—posts that Agatha reads with devotion each night as she waits for her absent boyfriend, the father of her baby, to maybe return her calls.

When Agatha learns that Meghan is pregnant again, and that their due dates fall within the same month, she finally musters up the courage to speak to her, thrilled that they now have the ordeal of childbearing in common. Little does Meghan know that the mundane exchange she has with a grocery store employee during a hurried afternoon shopping trip is about to change the course of her not-so-perfect life forever…

With its brilliant rendering of the secrets some women hold close and a shocking act that cannot be undone, The Secrets She Keeps delivers a dark and twisted page-turner that is absolutely impossible to put down.

Eugenie Clark “The Shark Lady”

9cdeab_15d46f858e57405fa4c03417eb253416.jpgWe recently came across a few books on Eugenie Clark, the ocean scientist who had a fondness for sharks. We enjoyed learning about her as her story was so inspiring.

From a very young age, Eugenie was told that her dreams of studying sharks and becoming a scientist were not possible. She was told by many that she should do something else with her life. Fortunately, Eugenie did follow her dreams and because of her courage we know more about sharks. People once believed that sharks were stupid and dangerous. Eugenie encouraged people to look at sharks differently.

88939_990x742-cb1424898755.ngsversion.1425057971006.adapt.590.1.jpg

Throughout her life she received many awards and honors for her work and made many discoveries, including new species of fish. She was a scuba gear pioneer and conducted scads of submersible dives, traveling around the world and leading more than two hundred field research expeditions. She worked on television specials and even helped with creating the very first IMAX film.

Eugenie Clark continued diving well into her 90’s and conducted her last dive in 2014.

Eugenie wrote two books, Lady with a Spear (1953) and The Lady and the Sharks (1969), which I’m looking forward to reading. She also wrote well over one hundred scientific articles.  Continue reading “Eugenie Clark “The Shark Lady””
