Strange Night I had

It was around 2:30 A M now this is when the oddest things happen, why? I have no idea but they do. I was talking about a light in the sky hovering back and fourth in the past. Now this past night it was back just hovering it is not a light or store opening not in the A M.

I kept looking out my window and the colors it has are red and green, I yet to take a video or photo of this thing, what ever it is it had the capability to make my computer shut off and on.

I had to turn it off several times, I just can't believe that I see no complaints from other people that live near by and if they are up in the A M to ask if other's see this thing as well.

Well I keep checking the news paper and on line and nothing, so if I see it again I so will snap it:)

If anyone has the same experience popping on over  here..

I also see a huge white dog barking walking down our block, strange and unusual happening lol..

Enchanted Written by Angela Adame

I love to write and I have a few stories I will share with you, these are all raw unedited and out of my head, one day I will have a book of tales corrected by a professional editor:) I am not a professional at all, I love my imagination at times.


Enchanted

On a warm summer breeze night, Rhiannon took a walk that she would never forget. Near the river of the back roads she came upon a dilapidated shack where an old women lives who the towns people call the Night Witch. They say she comes out at night and will kill.
She did not believe the town people. All they like to do is gossip. If you don’t fit to their satisfaction. She got near the shack and saw the old windows hanging off their hinges with cracks all around the frames and the door barley closed due to rotten edges, and a broken handle with a small hole that you can see right through.
She felt sad for the woman, and as she heard the ragged dog bark and the old woman came out yelling…
“Get out or I’ll kill you!”
Still, that did not frighten Rhiannon, as she walked to the shack. The dog barking louder, the elderly woman standing on her half broken steps, with a shovel in her left hand raised up and lantern barley lit in her right hand.
The women yelled out!
“Who are you, and what in the sam hill do you want with me?”
Rhiannon said, “I mean you no harm. My name is Rhiannon , and I live right in back of here above the little hills. When I can’t sleep I take midnight walks. Like I said, I mean you no harm,” The elderly women raising her voice saying “I have no visitors that come to see me so you get out now!”
Rhiannon softly speaking. “I know you’re alone, and since I can’t sleep how about getting to know each other a little better?”
“No go away the old woman said!”
The dog still barking and wagging his tail at the same time.
Rhiannon said, “See, your dog likes me, now why can’t you give me a chance?” Silence came over the woman for a second, then said, “I have no friends and that is the way I like it you hear?”
She bent down to pet the musty old dog. See your dog likes me, now isn’t that a good sign? The woman put her shovel down and walked back into the shack placing the lantern on the uneven table.

She turned around looking at Rhiannon, “Well are you going to come in?” You might as well your right at the front door.
She took a liking to the women fast. She reminded her of her own grandmother, who passed away awhile ago.
“Thank you, my name is Rhiannon, what is your name?”
“The old woman said, “I know your name, you told me it already what do you think I’m deaf?” Well you might as well know my name, it’s Claire.” Well finally she said, it’s nice to meet you, extending her hand out. They both sat on the wobbly chairs and got to know each other a little better.
“Claire I say that you’re a nice person.” I say the town’s people are just wrong about you.
“Oh, “Really Claire said, what are they calling me know?” They say you’re a witch and will kill on sight.  Claire started laughing no wonder I have no visitors. They both laughed even the ragged dog let out a little bark.

 “Claire, you know with all the spring flowers blooming you could turn this old shack into a very cute cottage.”
What? Claire said, yeah, we should make this shack into the most Enchanting cottage that you only see in them fancy home magazines.
Oh, child do not let your imagination run wild Claire giggled. This old thing is about to fall. Nonsense! She yelled out, we can have this place in tip top shape in no time. I guarantee you!

 She left Clair’s place and thinking on her way home how she was going to fix that beat up shack. Ideas came to mind.
Number one: Nails
Number two: Hammer
Number three: Paint
Number four: Flowers
Number five: Sand paper
That sounds about good she said to herself. The next day arrived and she went into her garage to get all that she needed to get that run down shack on its way, and putting the items all in her little red wagon.
Heading down the little hill right down to Claire’s she spotted her sweeping her porch with a few bristles that the crummy looking broom had.
“Good Morning Claire”
“Good Morning Dear”
“What do you have their child?” 
I brought all the items we need to ship shape this place into the enchanted cottage. Claire let out a small giggle.
Ok, Claire I am going to start fixing up these ugly windows. I brought new hinges and sand paper and paint, I will paint these windows sides and your windows will be like new.
They both started fixing the old shack to it’s best, hanging flower pots and herbs around the front porch, and getting the front garden in shape with all the beautiful spring flowers.
“Well Claire, I think we are doing a good job so far, and I can come back all this week and really do the painting and interior painting.”
Child you have done so much, you have a heart of gold.
Rhiannon left that night. When she return the next day Claire and the shack were gone, and no sign of the ragged old dog.  She called out, “Claire! Just to hear silence.”
She thought this was the wrong turn and was going to head back. She turned around and saw a note posted to the tree:
“Only a few have a heart of gold.
Therefore you will be rewarded in the end.”
She did not understand and did not know what to think, until she walked into town, where she saw the same saying on a church panel.

Day Walk to the Library

I found it to be a beautiful day for a walk threw the park and off to the library. Every time I get the urge to write my stories. I visit the library and read, read, read, It helps you get more of great idea's for your own story.

On the way I took a couple of photo's seeing how it was a beautiful day a little muggy but it happens in summer.

These are beautiful blooms Shrub, not sure of the name, there blooms were so pretty, specially with all the butterfly's fluttering around.

The park was quiet today as it was in the morning so there were not that many people running around, so I snapped the park.


Ok how many have seen this around, yes it was at the library and it still works :) I was amazed when I first saw it, This is our Cell Phone LOL...back in the days when cell phones were yet not heard of..


A beautiful day it was for a long walk to the library.

My Purchase I am so far happy with.



HAWAIIAN MOISTURE CREAM

This is how it looks out of the box, a pretty good size should last a while long.

Here is how the cream looks like, it is very fluffy and goes on very smooth, the scent is great and doesn't last long.

Now I am trying the Pure Olive Oil Bar Soap, Cleanse and moisturize naturally! This traditionally crafted 86% Pure Olive Oil soap is superbly moisturizing and loaded with Naturally Nourishing Antioxidants™. Pure and simple as soap can be – perfect for all skin types.
