Thursday Thirteen.....

I still don't like the fact that it was put in...but I would go out on it.
(No matter what you tell him about the construction, Preschool Boy insists that he would not go on it because it might break.)

Trivia: "Satisfaction" originally included a harmonica (I wonder what that sounded like). Mick Jagger is(was?) good at ballet.

-----Overnight Fruit Salad. With marshmallows, pecans and whipped cream.
-----"Dirty Coke
-----Boston Cream Cupcakes

Gingerbread Coffee will be the inaugural use of my French Press.
I got this 12 oz. press for a dollar on iHerb.com (they have flat shipping....so the shipping was $4 for this, expedited and the box included the supplement I had ordered plus a small gift). It is a dollar if it is one of the two trial-priced items your are allowed per order.
I just found out that THIS is my referral code for iHerb...I used them every month for various things. Recommended by my former doctor. The Vitamin D that would cost me at lest $20 a month only costs me a $1-something by using a 30-day sample on here...so MUCH savings in such a short time! Sign up for the site using my referral if you want. :-)

If I could travel, I would love to see the turquoise waters of the Isle of Pine...in New Caledonia which is a territory of France. I don't know where I would stay but I would relish each day's views. I wonder what the sunrises and sunsets are like. #ArmchairTravelingTheWorld

I made Cinnamon Stick Tea to reuse a stick. When the bits of stick dry out, if they are still potent, I will grind the cinnamon.

After a recent downpour.

Sopaipillas Posadas...traditional Chilean rainy day treat. Pumpkin rounds covered with Chancaca Sauce (grapefruit zest,organic sugar, cloves and a cinnamon stick cooked down and strained).
---Husband said it was weird...not excellent but very good.
---We used the leftover syrup for pancakes.
---They were a hit with Preschool Boy who said the name is a tongue twister. :-)

"The whale opened his mouth up and Jonah was pretending the whale tongue was stairs."

-----The last hands to touch the Declaration of Independence for a long time.
One pound of black raspberries. First of this year.
Hopefully, my mother's red raspberry bush will have berries next year...it has quiet a history...it belonged to my grandparents-in-law, then I think to in-laws, then was ours and we gave it to my mother who was so happy to have a red raspberry (they are expensive at the stores). When my mother passed away, the traveling raspberry bush came back to us and it has been growing strong in our garden. I know there are more important things to pray about in the world, but I do hope and pray that the red raspberry bush grows and does well. #LifesBlessings

-----On the annoying side, our Aldi's seems to have stopped carrying frozen raspberries. I will be writing a comment/inquiry.

This Summer we are learning about Ancient Civilizations in our older preschooler's homeschool.
We are starting with the lands of the Fertile Crescent. So far we are covering the Mediterranean Sea, the Persian Gulf, Mesopotamia, Sumer, the Tigris and the Euphrates. Little Guy is interested in the other waters he hasn't learned about on the map, too.

Mesopotamia from the viewpoint of a little girl whose father was a trader.

On the Considering-to-Read List

Dark Moon is a Sci-fi suspense thriller about a time in the near future when creatures from ancient legends emerge from hiding to help the surviving humans fight sinister alien invaders who have begun a ground invasion of New York City and cut down all in their path with lethal energy weapons. The story centers heavily on Raziel, the last remaining Werewolf as he is forced to begin turning the human soldiers that fall in battle in order to save their lives and rekindles his kind after centuries of near extinction.

The storyline follows his ancient mind back, to bittersweet memories of his distant youth more than a thousand years before, where he had met his counterpart and soulmate Lupea, a Pure Born Werewolf like himself that he had lost to the savagery of the Wars of the Moon. As he turns an elite squad of soldiers, one by one into newborn Werewolves, his memories of her are rekindled and he is forced to feel the loss of her all over again.

C.W. Holcomb's writing style and major influences include a wide variety of well known novelists that came before him including, J.R.R Tolkien, Mary Stewart, Raymond E. Feist, C.S. Lewis, Robert Jordan, Elizabeth Hayden and Frank Herbert. The biggest influences on his style were Terry Brooks and Terry Goodkind. He has drawn inspiration for his novels from other areas as well including, animated shows and video games.

His debut novel, Dark Moon Book one of the Brotherhood of the Moon, is inspired by ancient Celtic legends about Werebeasts that stalked the forests of the Scottish Highlands on the full moon. His newly released novel, Chaos:Worlds Beyond Book one of the Reflections of Infinity Saga is deeply inspired by Ancient Greek Mythology and Lore. His works contain endearing characters that always have something special and unique that helps them survive in the brutal and unrelenting Worlds that he creates.



I got to learn about this book because I am a host. :-)
