Featured place - Antelope Canyon, USA


picture from classic-thunderbird-club.com

I think that there are a lot of places on Earth that still have magic and this place seems to be one of them. The colors and the flow of the Earth are a beautiful thing. If you search for fairies I wonder if they hide in the shadows of this magical realm. A place to spend time at added to the list.

elf tip of the week - Honesty


Art from deviantart by dariofish


Elf tip #7 - Honesty

Honesty is sometimes an overlooked value. You can tell a white lie if it doesn't hurt anyone, right? The elves value honesty above other values and they can tell when someone is lying. Do not lie to an elf unless you want them to point it out in front of everyone around you. They will then put the rest f what you have to say in question. So take a lesson from the elves and try to be honest.

If you do not want to know the answer then do not ask me the question. This is what I tell others because I try to be very honest in my answer. Happy days to you.

Ojibwe / Lakota word of the week - turn on / turn off light



 The word of the week is more of a phrase or actually two phrases, because I am always telling my kids to turn off the light. A I was researching this I realized there are actually no words for turning off and on the light so I did the best I could. :D

Ojibwe - (turn on light) - waazakonebidoon - waa-zay-coal-knee-bee-doon
               (make dark room ) - ozhitoon dibikate - o- zee-toon dee-bee-kah-tay

Lakota - (to light) - iyo'yanpa - e - yo -yawn - pa
                (to make darkness) - ka'ga oi'okpaza - kahn - gaa o-e  oak-paa-zaa

elf tip of the week - Wisdom

Picture from deviantart by Kimir-Ra

Elf tip #6 - wisdom . This pertains to thinking before you say or do anything. It is easy to say something in anger, but it is hard to take it back. The person may forgive you, but they remember what you said. So take advice from the elves and think before you act. It is better than regret.

Featured book - Secrets of the Sirens - Julia Golding

picture from en.wikipedia.org 
I wanted to feature this book because it is a book that takes a person, young or old on a magical journey. It was a great read and my daughter loved it. The creatures that are in this book create an unforgettable experience.

Great read!
