Christmas Lights and Havanese

My poor puppies have to put up with a lot. First, it was Halloween costumes. Now…this.

Tanner, the one on the left, loves to pose for pictures. Max would rather sit on my lap and get lots of loving.

So after I went to pick up the lights on the floor, Max headed for the hills (or, under the dining room table.) Tanner was wagging his tail at me, ready for more photos. He is the perfect little model. 🙂 <3 Of course, I praised Tanner and laughed at Max and he came running out to greet me. No more photo shoots for the day.

Have a fun Sunday. I’m off to write some more.

Look Up, Look Down…

Look close, look far…it’s amazing what a different perspective you can have.

What we have: looking up through the shaded trees on the wetlands walk to see the brilliant sun; long distance shot at the arboretum, fall colors and flowers, shadows and light, and a path that leads you to the building; a grizzly bear close up, chomping on the fence to give you a bear hug; looking down–parakeets having a disagreement.

I didn’t have any time to work on My Highlander, well, let me amend that–I was taking care of grandbaby, took the dogs into be groomed, did a little shopping, bought a new strand of Christmas lights, well, two, and one half of one didn’t work, and worked on setting up the tree for pictures for Christmas. Oh, and picked up puppies!

But….I DID write 200 words. See? I wanted to, but didn’t think I’d have time. I didn’t feel like I should mention it because it was ONLY 200 words. But 200 words is…200 words. My incentive? Not only to keep at it, but I didn’t want to show one “dropped” day on writing every day for NaNoWriMo, even though I’ve made over 50K. Working on getting to 60K, hopefully, today. My daughter tells me we’ll shop for groceries today, tomorrow or Monday. Hmmm, that narrows it down. So I need to write in the meantime.

I cleaned house, but the puppies have already brought in a ton of more pine needles. I need to vacuum my yard.

Have a super weekend!!!!

Take a Walk with Me…

You never know what you might find!!!

Okay, finished NaNoWriMo–made over 50,000 words on My Highlander. But of course it’s not done, so off to write and write and write.

But if you want to take a walk with me, look at the wonders we might find!

Colorful Koi

Majestic koi. Ancient Koi. Artistic Koi. Midas-touched Koi.

If you were to look at individual pictures, you could tell a tale: Koi searching for truth (food), Koi buddying up, Koi creating a u-turn, and gnarling up traffic.

Yes, yes, so I should stick to my other story! Back to My Highlander. Five-thousand words left to go to reach NaNoWriMo. (National Novel Writing Month)

Baby was over all day yesterday, and so I didn’t get much done!

Have a lovely tall-tale day!

From Cougars to Butterflies

My camera came back from the shop nice and clean!! I had a “scratch” it looked like on the sensor, but it was just lint or something. Anyway, it’s all set and the lenses are calibrated.

So I’m back to picture taking, around writing.

Do you see the Monarch Butterfly’s Before and After shot? I have some other cool shots, but it’s time to get back to writing. The problem with writing stories is that they won’t get written without me! 🙂 <3

Have a lovely Monday!

Back in the Highlands

At least in the book.

Some beautiful places in Scotland! Castle Moil Ruins on top of the hill. It’s a bit of a climb, so if you’re the enemy, you’ll have trouble reaching it. 🙂 <3

I’ve been writing, without editing (much). I can’t write and not edit. But I’m over halfway done, and I wanted to go back in and pick up loose threads and begin to weave magic. In other words, make sure I don’t have a lot of mixed up stuff in the book… But weave magic sounds so much more….magical, doesn’t it?

And also, when I get stuck, like I have for the last 2 days, horrors, because I’d hoped to be much further along, it can help unstick me. 🙂

Have a lovely day. I have a ladies’ luncheon to go to so must try to get somewhere with the book in the meantime!

Veteran’s Day

Thanks to everyone who has served and continues to serve.

My son is still serving in the AF. I retired from the Army reserves, my sister did, my brother-in-law retired from the Army, my dad retired from the AF, my mother served in the Army, my dad’s uncle, was a prisoner of the Japanese and died in the Philippines. My dad had been a prisoner of war in Germany for 16 months. and others served in the Canadian Forces–my grandfather, a doctor. My French Great-Grandfather had been a member of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, and one of my Scottish ancestors had fought so well for the king of England, he was awarded land in Canada, one of the Playfairs. One of my German ancestors was brought over to fight the Patriots during the American Revolution, but believed in George Washington’s cause, fled to NY, and he and one of his sons served in the militia in Canada.

Thanks to everyone’s service but wishing we could all live in peace.

The Highlands

 

Black face sheep, looks to be fairly pregnant, and two Highland calves. They looked like they got a face trim though. 🙁

Okay, I reached 40K on My Highlander, so nearly reached the NaNoWriMo goal of 50K for the month. But I’m trying to reach 70K at least for publication.

Baby day! And my camera had dust in it so I took it to be cleaned. It looked like the sensor had a scratch on it. Thankfully, it was just dust.

And that’s it! Have a lovely TGIF!

Giraffes–for Fun

There’s just something about a giraffe that’s…lovable.

I have to admit I only reached 29K yesterday. Baby was needy and I just couldn’t get any more done on My Highlander. I had wanted to get to 30K. Though, it really was my free day and on my regular schedule, I would have to be at 18K today, so doing great. I also did critique a winner’s first 20 pages of her novel. Need to reread it this morning and make any further comments and send it back to her.

Not to mention I was awake all the night before and I just couldn’t think by the time the evening rolled around. Have you ever done that? It’s like having super-charged caffeine and you can’t sleep.

Anyway, so hope to make up for it today. Hope you have a great one!!! The puppies are telling me they are STARVING. Like, why? They slept all night. 🙂 <3
