GO YOU – some encouragement when you need it



As is any mother of one of her children, I am so proud of this baby.

It was inspired by a video of a little girl standing on her bathroom vanity sink, looking in the mirror, giving herself a pep talk! She jumps down, at the end, pumped for her day. I has been doing something like this for myself for over a decade. A year ago, I began posting my own little pep-talks daily on Facebook, designed to remind people that they can do anything! I would write whatever came into my head as I stared at the computer screen, ending it with GO…

About Annette Rochelle Aben:

Because Annette has always been aware of the presence of Angels, she thought everyone else was as well. The creation of this book honors not only her lifelong friends, guides, and guardians, but it introduces their love with the world.  Consider Annette Rochelle Aben a messenger, sharing that which comes directly to her from Angels.

Every picture in this book is an Angel here in my home.  Daily, I am able to have them around me and feel their loving energy.  Since I could not possibly have everyone into my home to meet these Angels, I put their pictures into Angel Messages.

Since the book came out, I tell them, “See, everyone loves your book!” Believe me, when I tell you, they ARE excited to share their energy with you and more than happy about this book finally being written.

My suggestion is that you gift a copy to a friend, a family member or even a place where people visit such as a Doctor’s waiting room.  You never know who may pick it up and receive a hug from an Angel when they need it the most.

Thank you so much for acknowledging the Angels. They merely wait to be invited to be by your side.

You can find Annette on Twitter @YouAreTheExpert, Facebook at Annette Rochelle Aben, and on her blog, Annette Rochelle Aben.





What a great Christmas gift this book would make! ❤

Silver’s Tea Party – A Monthly Tea Sharing Event

Hello, and good day! Welcome to my May Tea Party! Much like the weekend coffee sharing event from Part-Time Monster, my monthly tea party is where I like to catch up with friends, old and new! This is also a way for me to introduce you to some great new blogs and people that I have virtually met along the way! In addition, I want to share my great love of tea, and all things TEA!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of Wendy Anne Darling’s company. She only lives a couple hours north of us so she came down and spent the weekend. Really, I think all we did was eat and talk about writing! The fun part was that Wendy was ready for a change on her blog. I was excited to help her brainstorm! Check out her new blog here at wendyannedarling.wordpress.com. She is calling it, The Dragon’s Lair ~ A Magical Menagerie. She has some great fantasy in store for all of us!

I bribed Wendy to drink tea with me by serving chocolate chip cookies… not really! I made her a chocolate cake! 😀

I have been so busy this month that I almost did not find time to tell you about all the wonderful events that happened or are going to happen this month. Memorial Day is just around the corner and it is the perfect time to talk about the approaching summer, barbecuing, and all the fun times ahead.

First, as a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, I would like to remember and honor all the men and women who lost their lives in service to our country. This is a debt we must all pay forward by honoring them on Memorial Day. Fly your flags to honor those who died to preserve your personal freedoms.

Ignore the hyperbole of the political climate in America right now. These brave men and women deserve our respect!

My Rocky Mountain PBS station/website shares what Memorial Day is all about:

The History of Memorial Day

“Originally called Decoration Day, from the early tradition of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths, and flags, Memorial Day is a day for remembrance of those who have died in service to our country. It was first widely observed on May 30, 1868, to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers, by proclamation of Gen. John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of former Union sailors and soldiers.

During that first national celebration, former Union Gen. and sitting Ohio Congressman James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to decorate the graves of the more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers who were buried there.”


Since we last got together in April (click HERE to see what we did last month) I have joyfully finished the first draft of my novel, The Swamp Fairy. Here is a brief synopsis of what you can expect to find in my novel:

Fourteen-year-old Abigale Forester, recently orphaned and a Ward of the State of Illinois moves from Chicago to Florida to live with her aunt, her last living relative.

Aunt Magnolia becomes Abby’s guardian and together they claim an ancient inheritance of land that has been in Abby’s mother’s family for generations.

Abby wears her mother’s most sacred possession – a stone pendant in the shape of a heart forged from a giant mystical stone found on the very swamp land that Abby now owns.

However, Rafe Cobb, a greedy land developer, has other ideas. He wants Abby’s land for himself and he is willing to stop at nothing to own that land.

All Abby wants is to be part of a family again and to learn to ride horses with her two new friends, Savanna, and Blake.

The swamp slowly gives up some of its secrets and Abby is summoned by a primeval nymph who teaches her that her true destiny is to protect the primeval nymphs from evil in an ever-changing modern world.

Can Abby save the swamp and the Naiad Nymph Clan from certain destruction before it is too late?

I am so excited to share the stories the nymphs have been whispering to me. There are much more to come and wait until next month… Our next tea party will be on June 24th, National Fairy Day!

I know I have been sharing with you all how much fun it has been to create a back and front garden at our Colorado house. I have worked hard and can’t wait until the warm temperatures are finally here. Yes, it is still cool for the most part. When you live 6000 ft. up in elevation summer can take a while.

Veggies are planted and I am excited to see the abundance that will flow forth from these sheep troughs. Now, if we can keep the thunderstorms and hail in check, I will be happy.

How about you? What have you been up to in the month of May?

My friend and author, Barbara Venkataraman, is here to talk to us about HOMOPHONES (according to the Encarta Dictionary a homophone is: a word that is pronounced in the same way as one or more other words but is different in meaning and sometimes spelling, as are “hair” and “hare.”)

Yes, that’s right! Mrs. Grammar Person is back!

Mrs. Grammar Person’s Ode to Homophones

When I give my assent, it means I concur, but my rapid ascent means I fly like a bird. (I just love homophones, don’t you?)

compliment you when I say something kind, like your meal, is superb and complements the wine. (Unless, of course, your food is talking to your wine, then you’ve had too much to drink.)

News that is current is fresh and brand new, but if I give you a currant, I have a raisin for you. (Warm cinnamon buns with raisins—yum!)

cursor is the arrow on your computer screen, a curser likes swearing to say what he means. (He won’t be invited to my tea party, I assure you.)

When you’re discreet, there are no news releases, but when you’re discrete, you’ve gone all to pieces. (Try to keep it together, either way.)

If you need help, you should elicit advice; but for something illicit, you should always think twice. (Or maybe thrice…)

flair is a talent you can boast about, but when tempers flare, you’d better watch out. (Some people do have a flair for drama.)

hanger will keep your clothes wrinkle-free; a hangar is where your airplane should be. (At least that’s where I keep mine.)

hearty meal is filling and good, but a hardy lumberjack can chop lots of wood. (He’ll be ready for that hearty meal.)

When something is humorous, you’re having a ball, but injure your humerus and it’s not funny at all. (I’d rather laugh than cry, wouldn’t you?)

When you incite trouble, you’re said to foment, but have an insight and it’s a eureka moment. (A nice thought bubble beats causing trouble)

Someone who knits makes something cozy and nice, but someone with nits is infested with lice. (Heavens! I feel itchy just thinking about it.)

maze made of maize is hard to navigate, but maize on a cob means there’s corn on your plate. (Pass the butter, please.)

medal of honor is something you win, but meddle (the verb) means you like to butt in. (I only meddle when grammar is at stake.)

wave of my hand says ‘good-bye my friend’, but I wouldn’t waive a chance to visit again. (Adieu, mon Ami!)

I had several more friends publish books this month or the last couple of months. How exciting! Many congratulations to all of you! ❤

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha, from her blog, A Cooking Pot, and Twisted Tales, just released a book of poetry called, Out of the Silent Breath. You can find it on Amazon here.

My dear friend, Annette Rochelle Aben (click the link to visit her blog) released a book of Haiku in March. Somehow I missed this and had to add it since Haiku is one of my favorite forms of poetry! It is called, A Haiku Perspective 2016. This book can also be found on Amazon here.

One of my favorite “romance authors,” P.C. Zick (click the link to visit her blog) just released a new book called, Unshod. This is a collection of short stories with a western theme. You can find this book on Amazon here. The book is currently listed as FREE for Kindle!

Another author I really enjoy, C. S. Boyack, just released a new book called The Playground. Caution! The Playground is only suitable for mature readers, due to violence and mature themes. It sounds like a creepy suspense thriller that you won’t want to put down! You can purchase this book on Amazon, here. His blog is called Entertaining Stories at coldhandboyak.wordpress.com.

I try to subscribe to Amazon alerts on all the authors I have reviewed. If you would like to be included in my monthly tea party, please contact me and I will be glad to add you!

With summer just around the corner, it is soon going to be too warm to drink hot tea all day. That is where iced tea comes in. In the Southern United States, “sweet tea,” is a daily drink all year round. I have been told that you must be from the south to make the best sweet tea!

Of course, my favorite iced tea is:

Just one of these babies and you will sleep for a week! LOL! Seriously…

Anyway, I believe there is much that goes into the making of a good iced tea. I like to make “sun tea.” I use a clean glass pitcher, fill it with cold water, add the tea bags of my choice, and set it in the HOT Colorado sun! It makes a superb tea, and when you add some stevia you will quench your thirst in no time!

Although, I have tried this same method using cold water and tea bags in the fridge and it tasted just as good. It all depends on what you are looking for and how much time you have.

Are you looking for an A+ ICED TEA?

The first step is to decide what appeals to you taste-wise. My husband loves sun tea made from Lipton Tea Bags. For me, it always ends up too strong. I prefer using some of the herbal blends. If you have a strainer basket, loose tea makes an excellent beverage. It seems stronger than the bags so make sure you experiment first to find what you like best.

Check out seriouseats.com to find “The Tea Lovers Way to Make the Best Cold Brew Iced Tea.”

That’s it for the glorious month of May. Remember to do what you love and I will see you next month for our special fairy celebration!

Thanks for stopping by,

WELCOME to Silver’s TEA Party – A Monthly “Tea” Sharing Event

Hello, and good day! Welcome to my tea party! Much like the weekend coffee sharing event from Part-Time Monster, my monthly tea party is where I want to catch up with friends, old and new! This is also a way for me to introduce you to some great new blogs and people that I have virtually met along the way! In addition, I want to share my great love of tea, and all things TEA!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I am holding our tea party today to celebrate this March holiday. Come on in and have a seat! I have green tea and Irish tea today with Irish tea cake!

Image credit: Allrecipes.com (Click the link to find the Irish Tea Cake recipe)

You see, I was lucky enough to be named “Colleen,” which means “girl” in Ireland. I have only known two other “Colleen’s” in my life. It is a name that is truly unusual in America but seems to be gaining popularity. I have been told that if you are named Colleen, your parents did it to connect to their Irish roots. I don’t know about that. I was born from parents who were German/Russian immigrants. Nevertheless, each year I celebrate the Irish roots of my first name!

Each year on March 17th across the world, we join together as the Irish and the Irish at heart to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Today is no exception. The holiday began with the humble beginnings of a religious feast day to honor the patron saint of Ireland.

Now, St. Patrick’s Day has become an international celebration of Irish culture featuring parades, green rivers, green beer, and GREEN! Did I mention shamrocks and green?

Did you know that the early Christians in Ireland chose the shamrock to signify the Holy Trinity and their Christain pride? Here is a short video to explain some other unknown facts about the holiday and the patron saint of Ireland:

Since we last got together in February (click HERE to see what we did last month) I have busy! We have finally completed some of the last items on our list with our house contractor. We only have two things left to go! Woo HOO!

We created some inexpensive wall art at our house this month by framing album covers from our old LP collection. The albums look fabulous! I love the colors!

Boy George, James Taylor, ZZ Topp, Journey, Asia, and Stevie Nicks – Album Art

I have continued writing like a woman possessed anxious to finish the first draft of my book, The Swamp Fairy. Between my blog, my family, and my writing I find little time for anything else. House cleaning? Ohhh… erm, well that might have to be tackled this month! Sugar and Spice met the dust bunny under our bed! It wasn’t pretty.

How about you? What have you been up to in the month of March?

Did you know that I belong to an active writing community here on WordPress? It is simply amazing all the creativity that goes on around here.

I had several more friends publish their books this month, some for the very first time. Judy Martin, from Edwina’s Episodes, published her first book of poetry called, Rhymes of the Times. Way to go, Judy!

My friend, Annette Rochelle Aben published a book of haiku and poetry called, PhoKu – Visual Perspective Haiku. Annette is one of the most inspiring writers. She is a wealth of humor and inspiration!

Annette says: “Traditional Japanese Haiku is based in nature. The photographs in this book were taken during my visits to parks, lakes and of the flora and fauna in my neighborhood, here in Michigan. To honor the peace, serenity and joy I find in communing with nature using my PhoKu, brings a smile to my heart. May this book inspire you to take the time to enjoy the beauty of the world around you.”

Another of my dear friends, Erika Kind published a book of inspirational quotes and photos called: 101 Kind Quotes – Daily Inspirations.

Erika used all her own photos and quotes to compile this book. Erika is a constant source of inspiration to all who read her blog.

Another wonderful friend, Lance Greenfield also published a book this month called, Knitting Can Walk! Contrary to the title, Lance says this book is about, “The adventures and misadventures of a teenage boy, Calum McDougal, as he grows up in Hong Kong in the early nineteen-seventies.”

Kniting Can Walk

Lance is quite the world traveler. You never know which country he will be in next. He is a prolific writer and a book reviewer!

I have a special surprise for everyone! Have you met my friends Danny the dog, and Andrew Joyce? No? Well, get ready, cause here they are! I promised Andrew a green beer, so I will be right back. Enjoy getting to know Andrew. Be careful, though, Danny likes to STEAL the show!

Danny the dog who has his own Facebook page! (You might want to follow him… he gets cranky if he doesn’t get a lot of attention…)

Happy Saint Paddy’s Day, everyone. I would like to thank Colleen for inviting me over. I can’t tell you the last time I was invited to a tea party. Probably never. But it is my extreme pleasure to be here today. My name is Andrew Joyce and I write books for a living.

When I say I write books, I mean that I mainly come up with the story idea. I’m good at that, but for the rest of the process, I must depend on my collaborator. He does the editing, checks out my sentence structure, and tells me ways that I can better say what I want to say. In short, he cleans up my mess for me. He also doesn’t think I’m much of a writer, at least, compared with him. He has legions of fans around the world—most of them female—because of the stuff he writes. He’s more of a short-story type of guy. I need 100,000 words to get my stories across; he can do it in 500. That’s why he thinks he’s so much better than I am when it comes to writing.

I brought him along today because I get tongue-tied around pretty girls and I thought he could tell you one of his stories and I could sit back and relax and have a beer . . . I mean some tea.

So without further ado, allow me to introduce to you, Danny the Dog.

Image credit: Danny and the Viking Funeral

Hello, it is I, Danny the Dog! Andrew begged me to come along with him today and I resisted his entreaties for a long time. Then I decided to help the old guy out . . . again. However, I am now glad that I’m here. I like pretty girls, too, and they like me. I’m always getting scratched behind the ear by some adorable female while Andrew never gets scratched behind his ear. Or anywhere else for that matter.

For those of you who are not familiar with my writings, I just want you to know that all my stories are true. Andrew gives me so much grist for my mill, I don’t need to think up fiction stories. Anyway, I reckon I better get down to it and tell you about my latest adventure with Andrew. The only thing that you need to know about the set-up is that Andrew and I live on a boat.

Last week, I was helping Andrew look after three Labrador retrievers. What a nightmare! There was Chloe, who is fourteen months old, and then there’s Beau and Hank. They are both four months old and they are holy terrors. They live on a boat down at the end of the dock. Their human was going out of town and he asked my human to look after them and Andrew, being the idiot that he is, said yes.

Before he left, I told Jeff, the monsters’ human, that I wouldn’t trust Andrew to look after a taco, much less three dogs.

The trouble started right away. Jeff had two crates—humans call them crates, I call them cages—for Beau and Hank because, as I’ve said, they are holy terrors. Andrew went over to take them for their first walk right after Jeff left, and of course, he had to take me along to help out. Andrew got them out of the crates and was getting them off the boat when clumsy Hank fell into the water.

Let me paint the picture for you. It was nighttime. It was dark. The water was dark and Hank is black. Andrew and I could see nothing of the wayward dog. We could only hear him splashing around. The dock is about five feet above the water so Andrew couldn’t get him out by standing up there. Being the genius that he is (just kidding), Andrew got on the swim platform, which—for you landlubbers—is attached to the back of a boat and is only a foot above the water.

Now this was where Andrew’s ‘genius’ came into play. He took off his glasses and placed them on the transom so they wouldn’t slip off while he was bending over to pull Hank out of the water. He called to Hank. Hank swam over and Andrew got him onto the boat. Then Andrew went to get his glasses and they were not there or anywhere else on the boat. It looked as though Beau had knocked them into the water because he had his paws up in that general vicinity while he was watching Andrew rescue his twin brother. All this was in the first five minutes of Andrew looking after the monsters. And it only got better, and by better, I mean worse. I had a ball watching Andrew trying to cope for four days.

On to the next disaster, but first a side note. For some reason, Beau is enthralled with me. The damn dog won’t leave me alone. He puts his snoot in my face, runs around me, bounces around me; he is a royal pain in my rear end. I usually have to growl at him and give him a little nip on his snoot to get a little peace.

Now back to Andrew’s genius. We got the dogs back on the boat without further mishaps. Andrew fed them and all was well. But then Andrew decided not to put Hank and Beau in their crates. He felt sorry for them being cooped up like that. Big mistake!

The next morning when we went to get them, there was poop everywhere. The whole floor was covered in it. The babies had gotten into the dog food bag, ripped it open and ate every morsel. That night, they pooped everywhere and then walked in it. They got it on the couch, on the sliding glass doors, on everything. I think even on the ceiling! Needless to say, after spending two hours cleaning it all up, Andrew changed his mind about the crates.

A few nights later, we were hanging out. Andrew was staring into space because he did not have his glasses and could not read a book or even see the computer screen. I was on the computer answering my fan mail when Chloe came onto our boat. She’s always coming here and stealing my water bowl! To date, she has taken five. But she should have been locked up on her own boat! Andrew got up, looked out, saw Jeff, and said, “Thank God! Thank God!” I barked the same thing. Our days of taking care of the monsters were over.

In conclusion, Jeff had Andrew’s glasses. Beau had taken them and hidden them in his stash place.

So that is what my life with Andrew is like—one disaster after another.

It’s been nice meeting you all. Now I’ll turn the floor back to his nibs.”

Danny, I wish you would not be so flippant and disparaging when speaking of me, but thank you for coming along and thank you for the story.

My pleasure. Now can we go to that biker bar that I like? You can get a green beer and I can sit there and be adored by all those biker chicks. You know how they like to make a fuss over me.

Say goodnight, Danny.


I love when Danny and Andrew stop in for a visit. Thanks so much for being here to make our St. Patrick’s Day Tea an unforgettable event!

I met Andrew last year when I read and reviewed his book, Molly Lee on Lit World Interviews. If you are looking for a great visit to the wild west, this is a book that you will enjoy!

In fact, Andrew has a new book coming out soon… Danny shared the cover on Facebook!


Here are some of Andrew’s posts about his exciting new novel!

Thanks so much for dropping by to have some Irish tea and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us. I hoped you liked your tea and cake. I know I enjoyed our tea immensely and hope you come back next month!

By the way, if you are interested, thekitchn.com shares the difference between British, Scottish, and Irish tea (it’s a great blog too):

In a nutshell –

  • English breakfast: Full-bodied and rich. Originally a China black tea but now frequently includes a strong Ceylon tea component. May also include teas from Assam, Africa, and/or Indonesia.
  • Irish breakfast: More robust than English breakfast. Generally has a strong Assam component, giving it a malty flavor.
  • Scottish breakfast: Typically the strongest of the three. May include teas from China, Assam, Ceylon, Africa, and/or Indonesia.”

    See you in April!
