Spring is Showing Signs of Life Again!

My husband and I took an enjoyable walk around the neighborhood again in between the rainy and cooler days we have had recently. It was good to get out and about.

I began my day with a surprise double egg yolk looking up at me!

A surprise – a double yolk for breakfast to begin my day

I snapped several photos on a walk around the neighborhood. Though it was cloudy it didn’t rain yet.

We sat on our deck to rest after our walk. All the birds flew up to the roof to wait for us to leave so they could eat at the feeders. They were getting impatient so we went inside to let them feed in peace. They are beginning to think that the deck is theirs. Sigh!

I hope you enjoyed walking around my neighborhood with me. Thanks for stopping by.

Soon there will be more flowers to share with you. All my photos are copyrighted and cannot be used.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

A Walk Around the Neighborhood!

I love when the weather is spring-like and not winter-like as in a recent snowstorm. It was a nice day to take a walk around the neighborhood. I love to snap photos of everything I see. This drives my husband crazy because I am stopping every couple of minutes or so. Sigh!

Flowering bushes
Azaleas blooming
A view of my neighborhood
Another view – beautiful sky too!
Maple trees flowering
More maple trees wearing their spring coats to prepare for summer
Daffodils

Another azalea
Threatening to sky

We did make it home just in time as it began to rain. I took one look at the sky in above photo and knew we better head home and cut our walk a little short. We still did over 2 miles. We try to do 2-2 1/2 miles a few times a week outside (weather permitting) and the other days workout on our equipment (elliptical or treadmill) or I tap dance.

I hope you enjoyed walking with me around my neighborhood. At least you stayed dry. Please come back again real soon! Keep moving, stay healthy and positive! Take care and God bless!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

New Cover for Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Book 2!

I think every so often we have to update our covers on our books. What do you think? Do you agree?

Of course, if you love all your covers, then you don’t have to. I thought it was time to update Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Book 2. It needed something more than just a black cat. Check out the new cover on Amazon and Barnes & Noble soon.

My husband created this new one for me. I think it looks great! What do you think? He designs all my book covers and illustrates my children’s books and MG/PT books too. I am fortunate to have him!

If your MG/PT kids haven’t read these books yet, then it is time to check them out. This series was written for my two middle grandsons who were 10 and 12 at the time. They are now teenagers.

MG/PT/YA books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

This Davey & Derek Series won (10 book awards) – 5 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards, 3 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards – an Honorable Mention, a Silver Medal, and a Finalist, Book Excellence Award Finalist, a Silver Medal in the Authorsdb Cover Contest, Finalist in Red City Review Book Awards and many 5-Star Reviews from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards.

Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series is a fun and magical series with spells, wands, black cat, good witches, time travel, ghost hunting and more. There are also life lessons that include being kind, caring and respectful toward others, listen to parents, be helpful and do chores and bullying is never tolerated or accepted. Parents love this series too! When your MG/PT/YA read these books you will rest easy that they are reading good, clean and wholesome books. What more could you want in a book for your children?

Grab copies of Books 1-6 and give your children a gift they will love. Give them wings to fly and watch them soar! Happy Reading!

Here are some reviews from Amazon for this series: (The cover below is the former one.)

This book won a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and a Five-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards!

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite

The Case of the Mysterious Black Cat is the second book in the Davey & Derek: Junior Detectives series written by Janice Spina. With their mother having just started working full time and their older brother working part time after school, ten-year-old non-identical twins and junior sleuths, Davey and Derek, are now required to be supervised by elderly Aunt Grisela (aka Gigi) and Uncle George each day after school. Having travelled the world during their long lives, Gigi and George had collected many souvenirs and artifacts, which the twins marvel over. After noticing Gigi’s black cat, Mianna, looking back at them from Gigi’s crystal ball, Davey and Derek decide to solve the mystery which surrounds the cat. It does not take long to determine that Gigi is gifted with magical powers which have been passed down to each set of twins in her blood line, making Davey and Derek the next in line. When Davey wakes one night, screaming, after dreaming of Mianna, who’d tried in vain to convey an urgent warning that Jenny (the Deaf younger sister of their best friend Mickey) is in danger, it takes every trick in the book to save Jenny when she disappears. 

The backstories about Davey, Derek and Mickey are well covered at the beginning of the book, enabling the reader to know the most important details of the main players in the story. It impresses me that Janice Spina wants her readers to have the full advantage of character details to be able to connect with them more, without forcing the reader to buy earlier books in order to do so. The addition of magic to the mystery was a big twist which gave an extra huge element of excitement, adventure and super possibilities for the twins’ future cases which need to be solved. I found The Case of the Mysterious Black Cat to be an excellent magical tale and very much look forward to Davey and Derek’s next adventure. The author’s writing and imagination are incredible. I recommend this book to those in the 7-12 age group, or even the young at heart who love a little bit of magic served up with their mystery.

Here are all the books in the series. (Book 2 has old cover here. I will have it updated with new cover shortly on this promo by my husband, John.)

Each book is a stand alone story with the same characters. They can be read in any order but I always say – begin with Book 1 to get the full flavor of the characters as they grow in maturity.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Busy Bird Feeders on our Back Deck!

Our three bird feeders have been used by some hungry birds lately. I think it was since the recent spring snowstorm we had. They are filling up again in case more inclement weather comes about. Smart birds!

Red Winged Black Bird (he has red & white on his wings)

Red winged black bird in flight (Now you can see the red and white on its wings!) I was thrilled to capture this beautiful bird in flight!
Bird bath with fountain (haven’t been able to capture any bird or squirrel drinking yet

The birds are a little skittish about the fountain but there have been a few and a squirrel that have ventured forward for a drink. I wasn’t quick enough to capture them in a photo. Sigh! I’ll keep trying.

Male Cardinal and sparrows at feeder
Female Cardinal on right and sparrow and another bird in flight
Turkeys and their poults (last year’s photo)

The turkeys are always around. They feed off the ground any seeds that the birds drop from the feeders above. Nothing goes to waste here.

The poults above are all grown up now and join the other juvenile and adult turkeys in our yard. I haven’t snapped any photos of them recently. But, I will the next time I see them and add them to this post. Of course, I can’t account for how many poults did not make it because of Fisher Cats or coyotes or feral cats who may have snacked on them. Yuck! Oh my! Don’t want to think about it!

Hairy Woodpecker (I think according to my book of birds.)

The bird above is a woodpecker. I referred to my book, Smithsonian Handbook – Birds of New England. There two woodpeckers listed that looked similar in markings. I guess the one above is the Hairy Woodpecker. It has a little red spot on its head.

As I see more species of birds I will share them on another post. It’s fascinating watching them as they visit and feed at our feeders. My husband and I enjoy watching them. We know that the little we are doing to help them stay well fed does make a difference. It also encourages them to come back again and again and raise their offspring to do the same.

I hope you see some lovely birds in your neighborhood too. Please share them too.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Don’t Hold Your Breath Yet! Spring is Here Somewhere!

I mentioned in a previous post that hold on a minute and the weather in New England will change again from warm to cold and back again. Well, it happened on 4/16/21! We had snow – about two inches! It was heavy and very wet!

I have been so busy with a WIP that I haven’t had much time to write as many posts as I normally do. For that, I apologize. I hope to complete my WIP soon and share more about it. In the meantime I will be doing short posts like this one.

Here are some photos I snapped as we were out and about in this miserable weather.

April snowstorm

Tulips in the snow
Snow covered deck

Who would have thought that the second week of April we would have snow? The weather has been colder too – 40’s. The day after the storm the weather creeped up into the 50’s and the snow disappeared! That is the only good thing about spring snow – it melts quickly.

It’s amazing how when it is winter time the temps are as cold as below zero. When the temps go up to the 30’s we think it is warm! But in the spring when the temps go up to the 70’s and drop down to the 40’s or 50’s it feels cold! I guess it is all relative. It’s what our bodies get used to.

It was a good day to stay in and work on my book or read. I did a little of both. Well, I have plenty more to do on my WIP. Back to the drawing board.

I hope wherever you live that you are staying warm and dry. Take care. Stay safe and well.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Spring is Sprouting All Over! But the Weather is Cool Again!

In New England just wait a minute and the weather will change from warm to cold and back again. We hardy New Englanders are used to this. We are ready for anything that nature throws at us. I think! Yikes!

We have had snow in April! That was on April Fool’s Day one year. We were all fooled by Mother Nature that year. This year in 2021 the weather began nice and warm in the 70’s for a couple of days then dropped to 50’s and 60’s with rain and windy weather. What’s next? Snow? Well, snow was predicted up in the White Mountains (aptly names) of New Hampshire this week. Glad I am not there.

I snapped some photos on a warmer day of all the sprouting that is going on in my yard and neighborhood for you to enjoy. Got to keep thinking spring!!!

Here are all our bird houses. A few of them are already being used with grass sticking out. The blue birds are preparing their nests for their young. How sweet!

These bird houses will house some baby birds soon adding to the growing bird population that inhabit our backyard. There is plenty of food being supplied by my husband, the bird man. He loves watching them (so do I) and feeding them. I leave that up to him. I usually am busy, like now, writing about them.

Blue bird feeder with dried meal worms

The blue bird feeder above was being used recently to begin a nesting place for some baby birds. My husband noticed some twigs and sticks inside it along with the worms he had provided for feed. I think the blue birds were enamored by the color blue of this feeder and thought it might be perfect for a nest. John quickly took out the sticks and twigs and added more worms. This would be a cute place to watch the baby birds but also a perfect place for another bird to eat them. Oh no!! I hope the bird parents got the clue not to use it.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I will keep you informed about the nesting going on and of any new arrivals to our feeders. We are expecting humming birds and Baltimore Oriole birds soon! Can’t wait. They are gorgeous and fascinating to watch. I am keeping my ears tuned to the distinctive sound of the Orioles. It’s almost like a screeching sound. They announce their arrival and are excited to see that we have the feeder ready.

One year they came before John could get the feeder ready. The Oriole let us know about that. He squawked like a duck and kept coming back until we had it there. We thought he was going to leave and not come back. But, I guess, this bird was evidently hungry and patient enough to return. Phew!

A special ‘thank you’ to all my new readers. Please keep coming back for more entertaining posts. You never know what I am going to talk about next.

Please check out all my books on the right of this post by clicking on the covers. Watch for two new books coming this year and more later in the fall and winter. I just can’t keep still for a minute. There is always some WIP at Jemsbooks.blog/.com!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

A Gift from Above – Rainbows and a Night out with Friends!

Do you love rainbows? I think they are magical!

We went out to dinner with good friends (Fran & Jim) for the first time in well over a year to a lovely restaurant that serves delicious lamb, beef, fish and Lebanese food. It’s called the Phoenician Restaurant, located in Haverhill, MA. I love this restaurant! I feel doubly blessed to have had a fabulous meal with our special friends who have gotten us through this tough year in 2020! Thank you, Fran and Jim!

If you are looking for the best French fries, lamb, baked stuffed shrimp, rice pilaf and salad with mint, oil, garlic and lemon – go to the Phoenician Restaurant. I had 2 lamb chops, 2 baked stuffed shrimp, rice pilaf, Syrian bread, and 3 grape leaves! Wonderful meal! Of course I began with a glass of red sangria! Tasty! I packed up most of the lamb and rice for another meal. The rest I devoured! The restaurant is large with plenty of room to safely distance diners with a table left empty in between. They also have outside seating. It was a lovely warm night but we opted to sit inside out of the sun.

Getting back to rainbows, sorry I digress! Thinking of food does that to me! When we came out of the restaurant it had rained a little and up in the sky was a double rainbow. I heard someone exclaim, ‘look a rainbow!’ I caught my breath and pulled out my phone to snap a few. It was magnificent! My photos don’t do it justice. But, believe me, the colors were brilliant!

Magnificent double rainbows
Double rainbows at Phoenician
Wow – snapped another one from the car window

It was a wonderful way to end a delicious dinner with our special friends. It was so good to be out and about. We plan on doing that every weekend from now on to make up for all that we missed being stuck inside. We are fortunate to have spent the past year with these friends in each other’s homes for dinner. Now that we are fully vaccinated, we are feeling safer to get out with others but still wearing masks in and out of the restaurants and only taking them off, of course, to eat.

I hope that you and your family and friends are staying safe and well and still are cautious and careful about wearing your masks out. There are many who have not been vaccinated yet. Hopefully we will have herd immunity soon and that the doses we have been given provide the necessary efficacy and protection we need. God Bless!

If you would like to read more about rainbows go here. I like to think of rainbows as a gift from above. When we are down and think we are out a rainbow always picks us up and our spirits soar with it. How can you not feel joy and amazement looking at one?

I hope this post has lifted your spirits today. I want to say a special prayer for an online friend of mine, Debby Gies, who recently lost her husband. I will keep her in my daily prayers for strength to go on without him. Please pray for Debby. She is a lovely person and a wonderful author. May God bless you, Debby! Love and prayers going your way! Take care.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
