We saw The Lost City yesterday and it was really funny. I washed the dogs and am still combing out their matted fur. I’m on ch 9 on edits on Wolf Takes the Lead. Love this story. It seems like it’s been forever since I wrote it! 🙂 It’s Derek and Kate’s story in the Billionaire wolf series.
Okay, I’m back to edits. Can’t sleep, but I think it’s because I have so much going on. Tried to upload the new cover for Wolf Pack to Vellum, but it’s too small so had to get back with the cover artist to make it bigger. Today I have to run more errands and I’m editing this morning before I have to go.
I was going to share some trip pictures but I can’t download them to my computer, so I’m getting an SD reader that will hopefully download them instead.
I’m off to get some weeding done. When we got back, everything was green, just like the grass in this picture and the weeds and the new flowers are all out. lol Which means I have to weed again!
But I need to work on edits too and pick up my dogs from boarding them. We wanted to pick up the dogs yesterday, but they were closed for Easter. Poor dogs. As soon as I walk in the house, I’m greeted, they want to sit on my lap, want petting, etc., so it seems so weird not to have them underfoot with their cheery little expressions.
Just got a call from the groomer at the kennel. She says they are so badly matted they can’t groom them without shaving them. I don’t know how they get so messed up at this place. The other place I’ve taken them to were fine. So I’ll pick them up, groom them myself, and once they’re not matted, I’ll take them to a different groomer to trim them up nice and neat and bathe them again. So I have my work cut out for me.
We’re also seeing The Lost City this afternoon. I hope it’s as good as Romancing the Stone–another romance author story where the author gets caught up in the real world of danger.
Wow, that was fun, hectic, we had a blast, nearly 1-year-old and just turned 5-year-old had a ball at their first ever trip to Disney World. My son-in-law had never been either. Our favorite adult ride was Avator and live-action show was Indiana Jones.
I knew my granddaughter would LOVE everything. She was so excited to see all the Disney characters and ride the rides. But I was surprised to see how much my grandson loved everything too. He was smiling, clapping his hands, just utterly fascinated.
We walked about 5.5 miles every day, pushing strollers, carrying the 26 lb. baby in the heat rushing to get places. And we had some 4 hour night sleeps because of the baby. So now that I’m going back to my routine, writing, editing, getting more sleep, things will be more normal. I usually write on a trip, but just couldn’t manage because of hour early morning rush and late night activities. The only thing that scared the baby was an ibis came over to the table where we were eating and was nearly his size. If the baby had been in our lap, he would have been fine. But he was in a high chair on his own. Otherwise, he loved watching all the birds. Grackles were fine because they were smaller. Oh, and the carousel. He was fine until a certain point and got scared. His daddy just stood next to him. He should have gotten on the horse with him. But otherwise, he loved everything too.
So it was a great adventure! Even the airplane trip was fine. He slept nearly the whole way. Yay!
But now, it’s time to get to work! Well, after Easter! We’re doing an indoor crawly baby Easter egg hunt for the little one and an outdoor one for my granddaughter and my SIL is getting the grill hot for good eats.
This one was about creating a fairy tale. I loved the Arabian Nights tales. I had a whole book of them, and loved them reading them. So when they asked for fairy tales, I immediately thought of this one. Of course this would be Aladdin’s Lamp, but I loved Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves too.
Okay, so enough with fairy tales. I’m off to write on my real life ones–werewolves, of course.
So back to the real world of werewolves…I have been doing research into homes I can use for the heroine’s house in the Highlands of Scotland. My friend Lor helped me to brainstorm it and so I’m off and running! So much fun.
In the meantime, this fairy is an animal charmer. Don’t you wish you could talk to animals like she does?
Some of the sunflowers are my own, a photo of whole lot of sunflowers in field that I’d never used, and some of the large flowers. Love them growing in the garden. One is a sunflower growing in my daughter’s garden that I took a picture of. The flowers and bee on the right are from a picture I took.
The bumblebees are so territorial. When my granddaughter was out playing in the sprinkler and I was weeding, a bumblebee wasn’t happy with us at all. He was enjoying the nectar from the phlox in bloom.
