Brenham, Texas Writer’s Retreat

When I went to the writer’s retreat some years ago, I was madly editing a book I needed to turn in, but also taking walks and photographing the landscape and farm animals and birds from a birding blind. So much fun!

So yesterday I managed to get through 10 chapters of You Had Me at Cougar. I’m working on the last 6 chapters today, but have grandbaby duty this morning. I’m going to try and run to the grocery store before he gets here. And then have to pick up my granddaughter later, so it might be rough. I want to upload the proofed Saving the White Cougar today to all the sites, if I can do it. It’s on preorder so it will be out on September 1st.

Tomorrow my granddaughter will be here all day and that means swimming, hip hop dancing while I watch the baby, we’ll be doing workbooks, reading 1st readers, and painting more suncatchers. She has the butterfly one picked out for tomorrow.

A wild day in all. So I’m hoping I can get most of my work done on the two cougar books today!

It’s blessedly cool out this morning, lower humidity and we’re supposed to have storms this afternoon about the time I pick up my granddaughter from pre-school. Naturally. lol

The last time we were in the deluge, I just told her we were going through the tropical rainforest and she said, “That has lots of houses in it.”

Uh, yeah. Not typical of a rainforest. How did she get so smart? But she has a great imagination and she plays along. She asked me yesterday if the dragon in the eggshell that is emerging is real or not. I said not real. Otherwise it would be out already and breathing fire. So it’s good he’s not real. lol

Well, I’m off to get groceries and then I’m afraid I won’t have time for proofing UNLESS baby sleeps. Here’s hoping.

Have a super, lovely day!
