Book Musings: Old Turtle and the Broken Truth

Old Turtle and the Broken Truth

The “Old Turtle” books are my absolute favorite!

“You are loved …. And so are they”

A timeless story about love, acceptance, and the nature of truth.

“To all who seek truths and who listen to the language of breezes. (And turtles.)” ~ Douglas Wood

A book in tune with my heart … LOVE! Thomas and Lillian loved it too!

Step 1 of Operation Colorado Springs or bust! Clean and vacuum Rosey, the car! The huge cracked windshield adds to the beauty!!

Unicorn Magic by Lillian Darnell

July 7 2019:

My daughter is fundraising to help pay for she, her brother, and myself to attend a family conference related to her chromosome deletion …. 18p-. It’s the Chromosome 18 Family Conference and this year it’s in Colorado Springs, Colorado USA.

She will create a custom poem especially for you and the donation amount is entirely up to you. This one was a request for a unicorn themed poem from my friend Karen in Mississippi.

Pease share with others you know who may wish to support Lillian. Thank you!!

Unicorn Magic

Unicorns dance like clouds
Leaving little rainbows everywhere.
Unicorns prance happily
as a wave of rainbows everywhere.

Unicorns chase their tails like
dogs shedding pretty
sunsets everywhere.

Unicorns watch over us
Like guardian angels.
The unicorn flies into my dream
As I sleep.

Movie Night: Ella Enchanted

Team TLC Movie Night – Lillian’s choice: “Ella Enchanted”

Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, and my favorite character is Ella.”

I say, “Very good music. And may I never have to watch this movie again. Ha!! Just no.” 🙄

Thomas sat this one out. Smart move Thomas. 😂😜

I had a friend comment that this is the most negative thing she’s seen me post. HA!  In my peeling of the onion layers of the one known as Camilla, in this 49th year, I’m going through a grumpy layer. I’ve taken to swearing like I’ve never sworn before and my new motto is FBS … I’ll let you figure out what that stands for! HAHAHA!! Nothing like a swearing, magical, love spreading gypsy mermaid …. HA!

If you enjoy the movie night posts I share, and you are inspired to do so, I’d be incredibly grateful if you’d like to treat me to a coffee. Deeply grateful! –Camilla

Good Times at The Romano Duos

From yesterday … Just had to share all of them. The expressions. 😜😂💛💛💛

Such a good time. Just hanging out, playing UNO, and taking silly photos …. and eating some amazing food!! And seeing Samantha, my niece (the one standing beside Thomas), one more time before she heads back to Louisiana on Wednesday.

Check out my dinner plate! I was in food heaven! Grilled asparagus, yellow squash, and pineapple along with colorful potatoes, sweet corn on the cob, and a vegan pasta salad. Nom, nom!!! With s’mores for dessert!!! 😋😋😋
