The Adventures Cardigan Stories

My name is Elaine, from Ontario, Canada. I grew up in the Bush (logging) camps of Northern Ontario. My friends were the majestic animals that surrounded the area. Interesting adventures lead me to write about what I knew and created “The Adventures of Cardigan”
Here are the links for my book. I hope you would enjoy it.

A Soldier of War

My family is full of writers. My Mother wrote commercial jingles, actually 2  famous ones, she also wrote poetry. Her brother wrote a book but died before it was completed. I am a published author with a children's book, "The Adventures of Cardigan", and more on the way.  My brother Tom started writing lyrics, a novel that unfortunately was lost.

As children we were given the choice of what religion we wanted to be and studied many of them. Tom more than me. It fascinated him and he continued to learn. Then started the writing and he came out with his books.
 "A Soldier of War".
A Soldier of War is the first of a four part series which tells you of the purpose of God and ends with the reason for the creation of earth. The second in the series is A Soldier at Peace which describes what happened to God after creation. A Soldier of all Creation explains the many differing religions and opinions. A Soldier of Love tells you how it all ends. It was inspired and direc…

World Mosquito Day

It's World Mosquito Day! 
Why would we even care? I will answer that. In 1897 Sir Ronald Ross discovered the link between mosquitoes and the transmission of malaria.
These pesky, disease-carrying pests make life a living hell when they choose our blood as their food source, leaving us with red, itchy welts. If you want to be completely mosquito free you will have to move to Iceland or Antartica, or use a lot of fly dope.

The Adventures of Cardigan: a story about Jamie and his dog, Cardigan.

I won this book from a contest the author held and I quite liked it! The story takes place in Ontario (Canada); it’s blended with humour and quite an adventure, which children would enjoy.

I especially liked the beautiful water colour illustrations—quite intricate like I’d never thought water colour could create.

Caturday

Happy Caturday!
Another day to celebrate our feline friends. Actually it's our BLACK kitties this time. It's Black Cat Appreciation Day.

Black cats were symbolized as being evil or having to do with Witchcraft.

Did you know Black Cats can resist disease. They have a genetic mutation that causes them to have their black coats helps them resist diseases.

They are great survivalists. Their black coat camouflages them in the dark.

Black cats are PAWSOME!

Seek out a local shelter and adopt, spay and neuter.

Diabetes: A pain in the.........finger

This whole diabetes thing is not for me but will have to deal with it the rest of my life.

Newly diagnosed with a blood sugar of 11.5.  Was overweight all my life, tried every diet around. No problem with my sugars.

Diagnosed with Endometrial cancer in 2013, given 1 year to live. I took all treatments thrown at me and still here cancer free.

I decided I was going to change my lifestyle since given a second chance. My diet changed  but not really the foods. I stopped eating until I was full but rather ate until I was no longer hungry.  That made a huge difference. I'm a slow eater as it is so I filled up quicker. I ate everything I wanted, including chocolate but only took 1 piece. I lost 120 lbs for 4 1/2 years by doing that.

After the diet change, losing the weight I end up becoming diabetic! Go figure!  So now I have daily finger pricks and counting carbs , cut out my milk drinking.......this is a challenge for this old gal. But like others we just deal with it and do what we ha…

THE ADVENTURES OF CARDIGAN BY ELAINE BOSVIK CIARNAU

Date: 12 August 2019
By: Daily Madhu


When I first took this book to read, I was a bit skeptical because:
(i) Children Books aren't really my genre.
(ii) I'm an adult and a grown up, for crying out loud. I don't have any children of my own, so I shouldn't be spending my time reading Children Books.
Rest assured, all my doubts went flying right out of the window as soon as I read the first chapter. I absolutely loved 'The Adventures Of Cardigan' by Elaine Bosvik Ciarnau.




The blurb is as follows:
Not having other kids to play with, Jaime has to find a…
