Fairy Garden

My son Shay, wife Cassie and grandson Jayce gave me this for Mother’s Day
This is another garden with fairy stuff. I have fairies, door, and a house with trees and such.

I have a few items on the porch but need to get a pot to decorate, so photos later. I love decorating with these. I’m not so good with flowers so fairy gardens are the next best thing. 🙂 I have to put them in containers and such because the men will mow them over if I don’t. lol

I want to put fairies in one of my stories but need to think of it first. Ghosts and fairies are interesting to me. Things made up. Right now my mind is blank thanks to the stroke. So I am reading as much as I can to get the creative dreams going. I use to daydream all the time and my stories would come alive! I’m so anxious to get back to typing and handwriting with left and right hand. 🙂

I’ve started a journal again thanks to my daughter of course more small words because my left hand is messy. But glad that I can write! Hopefully, I will remember what I meant by the shorthand. lol May make a funny story lol.

I was glad I wrote my first book before the stroke, but I put it away because I didn’t think it was good.

  1. Obeyville Snoop – I like it so that’s what made me happy. Published Sept 2021
  2. Snoop in Overdrive – not done, mind block, 10 chpters done for now
  3. no title and no idea last of the series.
actual book
this is the cover I designed when I had my software and was studying graphic design.

The stroke took a few things away, memory, thinking, money, etc

I will get it back! I want to.

Books 2021

I read books by ebook and by physical book. I like the physical book best but ebook works right now because my right hand is not fully working. Getting better!

I want to read many next year just wish my goodreads widget would work.

I get better at writing about them, I hope. I try not to give much away but just enough. Gotta figure out goodreads. ?????

ebook- 7

book- 2

I have tons of books that I can read but they are downstairs and i’m not allowed down there yet. Maybe i will move them? I have downloaded a ton also.

Here’s to reading more in the new year!

Changes

I went to my new doctor and it went well. She even knew Dr. Sliter from my hometown. We talked a lot about my stroke last December. I gave her print outs of tests ran like the MRI that KU did and she was thrilled. Thinking it was the blood pressure.

She said it is fabulous that I have a good heart so we must keep the pressure down. She said it is odd, makes her want to go back to school, lol. They cant even figure it out. I’ve always been an odd ball.

She uped my Clonidine patch since the low dose wasnt working. Well it is making my gums swell but awesome blood pressure without having to swallow pills! I took a zyrtec and it is helping a bit. I dont want to give it up. I have high blood pressure because my kidneys are not working the way they should. Dang. Drink water but not too much. 8 glassesa day.

I see my kidney doctor in October plenty of time to drink water the way I should. 🙂

I published my book on September 1st! Obeyville Snoop.

There’s many choices to choose from that are not listed here.

I began the book in 2012 during Nanowrimo. Reached the 50,000 words. Then edited in 2013 during camp wrimo in April down to 25,000 words. Edited it again in Fastpencil on October 2014.That’s how it was typed and ready to publish. I decided to put it away again and then had the stroke. i got the courage to go edit it again and publish. I thought why not, I was thinking I came close to not being here and not being published better do it. It’s difficult typing one hand though. I will work on the second one soon.

The whole book full of edits. I miss writing on paper. This is the printouts when I got down.

book

i thought i was going to publish a book but it seemed fishy. so i asked to cancel it and deleted every thing. it didnt give you contacts and then they had people talk to you that was with another publishing company which seemed odd. then a third company was going to do the one book publish. nothing was being done with ebook sites. and it was going to charge more. forget that. sadly i lost 300 dollars. lesson learned.but now they will probably be attached to my book forever. maybe someday i wiil write a new one. why would you run a company with 3 publishers that dont advertise together or work together, fastpencil,opyrus, and ingram spark.

im really bummed.
