Arctic Wolf of Ely

I just woke up from a nap. What do you expect? Wild wolf play?

I needed to pull up one of my wolf pictures to remind me of what I’m writing about. White Wolf to the Rescue.

I received edits for another book, first edits and they’re always worse, and then a reminder that my Billionaire novel is due July 1st and wanting to know when I’m going to turn in White Wolf….I’m trying to get it done! With more Easter stuff to do than I had planned, I ended up writing less. I did manage 1666 words yesterday on my off day, so that helps. And I still need to do a ton of promotional stuff for SEAL Wolf Surrender’s release on May 27th.

And I have my son’s wedding coming up, so that’s going to take time. And the dogs are trying to dig under the fence to get to the dogs next door, so need to keep working on blocking that up, keep weeding, still planting seeds, and want to start some tomato plants when I return. Sometimes, I just need to do something other than just–writing!

Okay, so enough chit-chat! I’ve got to run!!! And I need to write! Enjoy your beautiful day!

Nature is Beauty

Wild lupine and a yellow wildflower backdrop in Minnesota

Beauty is all around us. We just have to pause, look, and see.

I wrote 2,500 words on the novella. I’m trying to finish it so I can get back to the novel, but I have baby here today. But I’ll try to get 1,000 today. We’ll be watering, but I’m going to try to get her in her swimsuit this time. She was so silly, running through the hose and getting soaked. It was hot, and she had a blast.

She’s due here shortly. Now, if only she’ll take a nap today!

Have a super, lovely day!

Grandma Needs Baby to Nap

Redheaded Woodpecker what do you see?

It was a napless day, which meant Grandma had to play all day with little one. She finally, finally, finally fell asleep 5 minutes before her momma arrived. We had walked around the neighborhood, played in the water, played chase around the house, run errands, played in her tent, read stories, watched pre-school shows, eaten, and she was getting so tired, and upset, but fighting sleep. We finally went outside to look at flowers while I carried her around and she was getting sleepier and sleepier. Then I walked inside, sat down, and she fell asleep in my arms, right before her momma knocked on the door.

Sooooo, Wednesday, we have to get a nap. Please. I get so much done while she sleeps! lol But even so, I managed to get 1,300 words written on the novella. I’ve given up on the novel, for the moment. Too difficult to do both at the same time. I’m over halfway done on the novella, a quarter of the way done on the novel.

I’m off to write!!! Have a wonderful day!!!

Annuals that are Perennials

These sunny little flowers are marigolds and they’re popping up all over the place from planting them last year. I love annuals that will reseed themselves and I can enjoy them again and again, without having to plant again!

Baby is here. I spent a lot of time Easter egg hunting Friday and Sunday, well, not really, I got to take pictures of my granddaughter, uhm, hunting for eggs one day, but on Sunday, she was much more interested in stopping the whirligigs that were twirling in the wind. While other kids filled their baskets to the brim, she totally ignored the eggs. lol

Okay, I’m off to play with her and hopefully get a little writing done. Have a beautiful day!!!

Redheaded Woodpecker

I moved my feeder next to the rosebush so that I could see it while I was writing. And guess what? The redheaded woodpecker I saw three years ago, or maybe a new one, showed up again! He feels like he’s far enough away from my window, but also, instead of a bare pine tree, I have lots of vegetation–crape mytles, youpon holly, and the rosebush around it and it might feel safer.

He’s a beautiful bird and I was thrilled to see him here.

Word count…? Ugh. I was revising White Wolf and that’s always a killer on word count. Add, take away, add, take away. We had an Easter egg hunt and barbecue yesterday, and when I got home, I couldn’t get into either story. So going to try and do better today. Hopefully.

Have a great day!!! I have to work! I want to plant flowers.

Creating a Story from a Photo

I took this photo of a trio of birdhouses last year, and then with the Adobe Watercolor action, played around and created a watercolor.

I’m off to photograph my granddaughter’s Easter egg hunt and have a barbecue, so will have to get caught up on writing later today!

Have a lovely day!!!

Creating a Watercolor from a Photo–Easy

https://create.adobe.com/2019/3/20/transform_photos_int.html

This was a blue jay without the peanut in the photo for the watercolor, but essentially the same setting, easy with Photoshop and free for now.

Okay, I’m really in my bear cave to write! Have a beautiful day!

White Winged Dove

I moved the feeder so that when I took pictures, it would have a better background instead of just the fence. So here you can see the roses surrounding the feeders.

Well, we’re supposed to get rain today and I’ve got my granddaughter for a lot longer today, so I need to get out and walk with her early. It’s too dark yet. Maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll get some writing in! I did manage to get 2,000 on the novella yesterday, making 6,000. I need 19,000 to finish it. But of course, I’m getting more behind on my other book. *sigh* And we’re doing the Easter egg hunt for my granddaughter early on Friday and then a barbecue, so that wasn’t something I planned, but we’ll have a lot of fun.

I’m off to cuddle with my granddaughter and try to get something done! Have a lovely day!!!

Sometimes a Peanut Hits the Spot

Blue jay with a peanut. Red bellied woodpecker with a peanut.

It’s a writing day today. I have to get more done! I tried to yesterday, turned in the 2nd blog, and still had to write the last one. But my granddaughter was a handful until she fell asleep on my lap, yay! And I finally began writing on White Wolf to the Rescue. I had planned to take her for a long walk, but she was so tired, I wanted to wait until she had a nap. Didn’t work because she slept for over 3 hours, nearly until her momma picked her up.

So I’m off to write! Have a fun day!!!
