Blogging may not be my life, but it sure does add to it in the best possible way

Where to start?! Hello! Thank you for sticking around/visiting. Not updating FLC for the past two weeks was mostly helpful due to the fact that every time I visited I was able to see Miciek‘s happy little face. It was the best thing I could have done. Since I can’t see Miciek anymore and can’t [...]

Miciek

My beloved, adorable, amazing Miciek died today. He was very sick and died at home with my family, incidentally, while I was skyping with them. It was very unexpected for me, because I had hope that he would get better and the thought that he would die wouldn’t cross my mind. I already miss him [...]

What’s your life tip?: anger

I’m going to start off by saying sorry, this isn’t my usual life tip. I have many life tips lined up to share with all of you, but the past few days I may have had a couple of real rainbows, but am far from rainbow or even sunny moments. This morning I woke up [...]

Just a little update…

It’s been so warm these past few days, I’d gladly jump into a lake. I’d gladly spend all day outside, but I’d probably melt. I find myself dreaming of popsicles and those freezy pops I used to eat all the time as a kid. You know… I almost lost you last week. My battery on [...]

Fantasy fiction novels & why they belong on FLC

Someone mentioned to me that a few of my readers may be confused as to why I post action alerts about how to help animals, the environment, human rights, vegan recipes and then do what seems like a 180 and feature a fantasy fiction book review. In my “welcome” to the side I mention that [...]

The life that is waiting for us

First, I want to thank you for your awesome comments on my A good dose of teen literature post. I wasn’t expecting so many positive comments, especially about books labeled “teen”, so I was really pleasantly surprised. It was a nice reminder that I really should be myself completely on here and not fear the [...]

April showers bring May flowers… & accomplished goals?

The sun is shining and it’s warm enough to go swimming (25°C/77°F)! The weather keeps going back and forth from super warm to cold and rainy. I’m not complaining because it is April after all which means spring rain showers. I didn’t realize until I wrote “April showers” on my image above that there is [...]

Getting to know me even better + a few lovely blogs

Around a month ago, I received the One Lovely Blog Award from the lovely Laloofah of Mehitable Days. I had just posted my Stylish Blogger Award so I didn’t want to overwhelm you with awards and TMI about me and so on, but it’s about time I brought this up! I was so happy because [...]

I finally have an ‘about me’ page

I finally made an ‘about me‘ page! I had been waiting for the weather to warm up to get a recent and decent picture of myself. As you can see, I had a bunch of fun taking these photos. So for anyone who is interested, just click the image above and read all about me. [...]

Orchid in bloom + fasting

This beauty has been blooming since late February and is now absolutely stunning. At first I was worried it wouldn’t have another life in it, but as you can see, it’s full of life! On some days it would be snowing outside and indoors I had this loveliness to gaze upon. Right now there are [...]
