Little Stories from My Week: Black Book Untold, Your New Project Manager, & A Dream Unremembered…

Black Book Untold You might’ve seen a solid black book appear in some photos in a post. That book was not intentionally kept secret, but I completed the book and here’s a quick review with plenty of suspense for anyone who may want to read a new novel or even hear about one I just…… Continue reading Little Stories from My Week: Black Book Untold, Your New Project Manager, & A Dream Unremembered…

All Day Library Day

After lunch, I packed a bag, my purse, and canteen, and camped out at the library all day (it was a great time!) while construction was being done admirably at the apartment. 🙏💕Peeko’s been having the best time himself at home as he enjoys hands on projects and broadening his skillset. 🐱 I checked on…… Continue reading All Day Library Day

Home Now…My Recent True Tales with Art: Evening News :)

I came back home late afternoon yesterday (Mon.) Peeko this morning, after requesting his read earlier than usual, heard a favorite poem he likes to replay, “The Bean-Stalk” by Edna St. Vincent Millay. He sat like a hen as he listened to it, this photo above snapped just as he reclined relaxed afterwards, and I…… Continue reading Home Now…My Recent True Tales with Art: Evening News 🙂

My Fun Critique of a Novel by Ameen Rihani, First One in English by An Arab-American Author

I often almost forget the Pisces moon in my sign, but last night I glimpsed its sweet glimmering through the slim hallway window, still tall enough for me to see the moon aglow up high and the rain shimmering around it, before bed. *~ (This is my introduction that connects the book to my own…… Continue reading My Fun Critique of a Novel by Ameen Rihani, First One in English by An Arab-American Author

The Queen’s Full Moon…From a Fairy of the East Coast to Bring Some Fun When a Storm’s A’Coming

Morning note included Science Experiment Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong; it actually is harder to hold a strength pose while someone’s yelling obscene insults, even if it’s just Nicki Minaj artistically in a song. (Glad for the wall 😊)But I can still practice seated poses and relaxation in the meanwhile, ‘tho other songs of hers…… Continue reading The Queen’s Full Moon…From a Fairy of the East Coast to Bring Some Fun When a Storm’s A’Coming

Off and On Its Way, The Faery Queene With Two Hemingways

Notes added on 8/17 Along with The Faery Queene Book I by Edmund Spenser I’d fully read, I decided to return For Whom The Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway partly read because it is a great book with depth I’d found most noticeably, but I’d also veered off events and newly introduced characters awhile. I…… Continue reading Off and On Its Way, The Faery Queene With Two Hemingways

Coming Right Up After The Faery Queene I, One Cup of A Surprisingly Good Hemingway

The little green one hundred year old book on the right is the book I’ve just read last and reviewed recently on this blog, The Faery Queene I by Edmund Spenser. I read his apologetic humble note about the book in the introduction after I’d completed my review and it made me feel that maybe…… Continue reading Coming Right Up After The Faery Queene I, One Cup of A Surprisingly Good Hemingway

The Faery Queene Book I, My Reflective Review

It’s been a nice afternoon moment of rest with a cup of rose tea & reaching the end of this book today… An epic poem written in the 1500s by the English author Edmund Spenser which contains a nice blend of sometimes ‘opposing’ beliefs or folk cultures. It’s written in Early Modern English and reading…… Continue reading The Faery Queene Book I, My Reflective Review

A Very Small Adventure of a Different Type

This sad-looking gaze is me looking with compassion at my strawberry plants 🍓 that look unhappy but still cared for with my watering, weeding, and blessings from me. Com-passion (to be with in suffering or to suffer with.) The neighbor’s apartment construction sounds suddenly getting loud today in my apartment as I’d sat down to…… Continue reading A Very Small Adventure of a Different Type

A Sea-Air Song for the Morning

Both cups are for me. I like these cute little cups at times with about this amount of tea. I am much closer now to the end of the epic poem The Faery Queene (Book I) by Edmund Spenser and wrote something a very different sort of epic myself in yesterday’s post ‘Pop Music Face-Off.’…… Continue reading A Sea-Air Song for the Morning

Was That The Sound of Fairy Bells?

Found a shady pine to sit beneath and am reading The Faery Queene, passed by with my keys around my wrist with that pale green band chiming like bells, past the neighbor sitting on her front patio drinking coffee, smiled at the tiny old green book in my hands. I had a little bit of…… Continue reading Was That The Sound of Fairy Bells?
