Greetings… from Texas

I got this cute little husky from Cracker Barrel today.. It was in New Mexico, but now I’m back in Texas.😁

Anyway I’m used my Kindle Fire for the pics, so it’s kind of lousy.

I saw what Mexico looked like on the way to New Mexico. It was interesting… I didn’t get pictures though.. 😣

Their buildings were brightly colored (like pink and lime green, etc) and I assumed that this is their culture. Idk.


Hiatus, Uncategorized


Man, it just feels like yesterday it turned June and now we’re over halfway through it! The weather is just… annoying. 😛 Humid and hot.. I miss California’s weather. It was nice and sunny, with a high chance of being sunburned. 😛

First order of business… I decided that I really don’t enjoy doing Goal/assessment posts anymore. It feels like a burden to have to do it, so I just want to have the blog for fun and to post what I want to post. I might want to post goals and stuff sometimes, but it won’t happen often.

Okay another thing. To be honest, I’ve been on a hiatus without letting you guys know. Sorry about that.

…. I’m going to continue being on the hiatus.

Please just bare with me here, guys.

I just can’t handle posting on CAFC because I am having a VERY hard time right now.

One wordhintthingy: camp.

Anyways, what I will say is that I have been a little depressed and sad… and I bet you won’t believe this, but I almost quit WordPress because of that. I don’t have it in my heart to be active all of the time anymore (which is probably temporary)….I dropped out of doing a few blog tours, mainly because of going out of town pretty soon, but also because of how I’m feeling.

And if you’re friends with me on Goodreads, you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been as active on there either. What’s the point?

I’ll post once in awhile, which could be tomorrow for all I know, but I have a feeling I won’t be doing much for sometime. I’m going out of time this week (for about two weeks, I believe) and I’m kind of dreading it in a way, so please keep me in prayer. ❤

The Animal Book Tag

Hey everyone! My cousin and I created this awesome book tag. 🙂



1) Add the tag graphic to your post.

2) Thank the person who tagged you.

3) Answer the questions.

4) Tag five bloggers.

5) And you’re done!

Question #1: What is your favorite book with animals as the main characters?

The Adventures of Max and Liz and The Epic Order of the Seven are my favorite series. The only one I’ve read is the second book, The Schemer, the Dreamer, and the Robe.

The Adventures of Max and Liz are basically the same as the The Epic Order of the Seven. The publishers just changed the name or something.

Q #2: Tell us about the book!

I’m not good at explaining things, but I’ll try my best. Keep in mind that I’ve only read the second book in the series, so I’m not exactly certain what the first one was about.

Max, Liz, Kate, and Al earned immortality (from the first book, which yeah sounds weird. :P). They have waited for centuries for a word from the Maker and then they get their first directive from God to serve him for important points in human history. They learn they are to work behind the scenes in the life of Joseph.
With the help of a British mouse and a camel, they must combat the forces of evil that are out to thwart their plans, leading them into mysterious adventures with pyramids and mummies. If Max and Liz fail in this mission, all of Egypt will suffer, and the Hebrew nation will never be born.

So basically this story is about Joseph. It’s so awesome! You should totally read it! 😀

Q #3: Which is your favorite animal in it?

I don’t know that I had any particular favorites… I suppose Al. He made me laugh when he was clueless and always wanted food. 🙂

Q# 4: What is your favorite scene in it?

Er, it’s really hard to choose just one! I really liked most of Joseph’s scenes, but I especially liked when he arrived at the slave market. I just found that interesting! Oh and I liked it when Joesph and Kate winked at each other.  🙂

Q #5: What is your favorite quote from the book??

I going to be honest. I don’t remember liking a specific quote so I looked on GR to see if there was one that stuck out to me. There was only one, so I choose that one. I’m not exactly sure if it’s from the book I read, but it kind of sounds familiar. Or am I just telling myself that? The world will never know….

Blog Tour: The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective

Kellyn Roth is having a blog tour for her books in The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series, and I thought I’d help her out by posting about it. Are you interested? 🙂



That’s right, ladies and gentleman! And now, the event you’ve been looking forward to since the day you were born ….

Okay, perhaps you haven’t been waiting that long, but several of you have commented in such a way that led to me to believe that there was some excitement about the launching of the new covers for The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective.

Now, regardless of your excitement – or lack of – continue reading (if you haven’t already skipped ahead to view the covers, beast). After all, the blog tour signups are also opening today, and I have a lot of fun announcements about the party we’ll be having!
