Finally off for our May 2014 date! This girl takes forever with her schedule …. which MUST be followed!
Late lunch at Great Basin …. Garlic fries for Lillian and shrimp fajita salad for me! YUM!!!! Next stop Junkee! Had fun trying on clothes and found some cool fabric for a new pillowcase for Lillian. Last stop Stoneage for some fabulous yummy goodness feeling the stones and crystals! WOW! Lillian chose a white quartz heart and I got a piece of scolecite …. Wheeee!
Haven’t had time to post this! Lillian Darnell will be at Barnes & Noble this Saturday, the 30th, from 2-4:30, signing her books! It’s a “Local Author Event” all weekend!
I’ll be there in January with my latest book, Words of Alchemy. It got delayed with this wild moving mess! Nearly there with it though! Come by and see Lillian and encourage Barnes & Noble to keep having these events to support authors!! Thank you everyone … for the love and support!!

She had a good time signing books! Frank and Robert and Samantha came by too. And a photo of a deeply and extremely exhausted me. Thank you Barnes & Noble for supporting local authors.
Incredibly creative idea by Lillian Darnell …. She has created an interview between two fictional characters discussing a book. Lillian’s fun idea for a book review with a twist! I hope you’ll check it out … Pretty quick read.
Another wonderful Lillian story … Once many years ago, there was a time when Marigold Springs was called Magnolia Springs. Magnolia Springs had a girl named Marcella (Marie for short) and she wanted to travel to far off places to have daring cliffs and a never-ending basin of poisoned water.
“Once many years ago, Anne was playfully jumping on some stepping stones designed to look like flowers. Many years past and Anne was now sleeping peacefully and was dreaming. Meanwhile, there was a hidden dream cam in her brain recording her dream.
First stop: Enjoying the daisies and then having a yummy, delicious swim. 💦💙
Second stop: French fries for Lillian followed by a frog!!!
Tahini Broccolini for me followed by a vegan chocolate blackout cupcake for me. Lillian tried the broccolini and like it! It was so yum!! Charred broccolini with a smoky, lemony tahini sauce topped with toasted almonds.
Third stop: Audrey Harris Park – Read for a bit and then had fun taking photos! Love this view! 🌺🌺🌺
Peaceful Summer by Lillian Darnell …. There’s still time to participate in Lillian’s fundraiser and get a custom poem created especially for you .. This one was created for a lovely supporter in Tasmania.
Here’s the beautiful comment from Patricia once she received her custom poem …
Dear Camilla and Lillian
Thank you! The poem is everything I hoped for and more, and paints a brilliant word-picture. I look forward v. much to seeing the image, and know it, too, will be special.
As we approach Winter Solstice here in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s particularly lovely to be reminded of the pleasures and promise of summer.
The donation amount is completely up to you. Go here to learn why Lillian is fundraising and also if you’d like a custom poem of your own.
Just ordered Lillian’s high school graduation diploma and tassel. Now to get the announcements. If you’d like to receive an announcement, message me your email address or post it here. Why do I have butterflies in my stomach? HA! 💜🦋🦋🦋💜 Thanks to my daddy, Robert Downs, for helping with this part! 🙏💜f

You don’t have to be highly intelligent and a math whiz to be successful in life and contribute to society!! And you don’t have to do it the way it’s “supposed” to be done.🖕🏻
