Spooky Weather

We had another 4 inches of rain yesterday on top of the 19 inches we already had. We have only a 20% chance of rain today, so not likely we’ll have any.

I took a picture of one of my daughter’s decorations for Halloween and embellished it.

So I’m off and charging on with the story. I’m at 101,000 words now, maybe, maybe, maybe an end in sight.

Hope you have a beautiful day. If the roads aren’t too flooded, I’m going to try and get some groceries. Or, just keep writing.

Hummingbird Art

I’m off and running this morning. I wrote another 3,000 words yesterday, did all kinds of switching scenes around which changes things a lot. What? They were going to bed but now it’s daytime? Lunch is breakfast? This isn’t relevant. Oh, no, need more setup here now. Anyway, somehow with all the moving around of stuff, I still managed to write more. I’m at 95,000.

Off to do my thing.

Have a super lovely day!

Creating Fun Adventures

This is from Oscraps, so much fun to use to create storybook pictures!

Speaking of which, my granddaughter is here and I’ve got to run!

Have a day filled with adventure. And hopefully you will only run into friendly monsters.

Storms

I’m running out of time. NEED to finish this book and read the other to turn in. With my granddaughter, it’s hard to get much done.

I’m off to write. She’s back tomorrow again. And then four days of no granddaughter and all writing.

We ended up with 4 inches of rain yesterday, 3 inches for the first storm and an inch for the second. Yay!

Hope you have a beautiful day! I’m just so glad it rained!

Alpha and His Cheese Its!

It’s an enrichment program they have at the wolf reserve in Omaha. He didn’t just find trash lying around. They put chicken bones in it and he has to search out the prize. He found it and he took off running. MINE.

Reminds me of my granddaughter. She looked in the fridge this morning, pointed to my yogurt and said, “Mine.”

Yep, from wolves to kids, it’s the same deal.

I’m off to play with her…hope to get some work done on the story, or reading done on the other. We had rain!!! Yes! Three inches. We sure needed it.

Have a great day!!!

Weeding Weeding Weeding

Gardening? Ha! Somehow I forgot the meaning of low maintenance landscaping…. I put out three 40-gallon bags of weeds and grass pulled from my flowerbeds the last couple of days. Some of it is zinnia that is looking like it’s seen better days and milkweed that the aphids have pretty much destroyed. Once I removed them, I could get to the grass and weeds they were hiding. I’ve got another bag started today that is already halfway full. I’ve found ferns, crape myrtles, elm trees, pine trees and live oaks all growing in that massive tangle of plants. They’re too close to the fence (except for the ferns) so I must transplant the crape myrtles, maybe the pines, and get rid of the others.

Alpha wolf in Omaha

Okay, back to the book. It’s getting better and longer. yay!

If we’re REALLY lucky, and I mean REALLY, we’ll get some much needed rain. I’m not counting on it. But maybe I’ll be surprised. The lightning we had yesterday morning amounted to no rain.

Have a super, duper beautiful day! Mine is going to be great once I get back to writing!

Photo Compositing

One of the Facebook pages I follow: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Imaginationbyrowena/ mentioned taking something in your house and making a composite for it. So I did. It’s a fun exercise. I’m going to try it with a fairy my mother gave me years ago. This little bear paddling I picked up in Minnesota when I visited last year.

Another artist had done that using ceramic pixie figures to create composites and they were adorable.

Okay, finished 3,000 words + yesterday and I’m liking the story much better. I’m rereading all the stuff I rewrote yesterday to make sure it fits and then have to continue working on it. I’m 7,000 over word count. Yay! I’m shooting for another 8,000 words. Minimum at least 3,000.

So this morning at oh-dark-thirty, I took the dogs out and was shocked to see lightning. Maybe we’ll get rain. I wouldn’t count on it, but hoping…

Have a super, duper day! I’m off to get busy!

Yesterday, No Blog Day–What Happened?

I have a routine. Check emails, blog, take the dogs out, feed them, take them out, do a million other things, then write.

Yesterday, I jumped into doing edits on the story. Did I tell you I received edits for another book? Sheesh. So I wanted to get some more done on this before I go back into another book. By the time I thought of blogging, it was way past time to do anything about it.

So today I spent 2 hours working on the garden, pulling up grass and weeds. With 100 degree days, I have to get it done. Early. It already feels like a sweaty 87 degrees at 8 am. Hot.

But I got a lot done, so now it’s time to get back to edits. Added 2,000 words yesterday, but need to tie the story together better. Not sure what to do to do it, but thinking on it. In the meantime, I continue to edit it because I can’t just sit around and think. I don’t have time.

Have a beautiful day!! I’m off to get started!

The Routine’s Changing

Centaurs courting in the woods in Minnesota. No telling what you will find on a walk through the woods!

We’re switching out days so my granddaughter can get more preschool stuff (she’s only 2), but at her daycare they’re teaching the alphabet and numbers on Mondays and Tuesdays. Her parents and I are also, but it doesn’t hurt to have all the reinforcement. That means I’ll have a WHOLE 7 days of no toddler babysitting after today. And HOPEFULLY, I can finish this book in those 7 days.

Off to play with her.

Have a great day!!! Mine will be busy.

Forget the Candy, Kiss the Frog

See, Rover, isn’t the frog beautiful?

I took the picture of the candy store at the mall. I thought about using one of the Daz3d creations with a child in a vintage outfit, but I hadn’t used this image yet with the girl, the dog and the frog and thought it would be cute.

I’m off to write. I was doing a lot of filling in blanks on the story yesterday, a necessary part of the writing process, but only managed to get 1500 words instead of my 2,000. But, I made minimum word count for the book. Yay! I did have my granddaughter over here also and that took away from writing for part of the day.

Now I just have to finish the story. I started re-reading from the beginning again to see what other blanks I need to fill in, the things I need to change because of other changes, and how I’m going to end the story.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to start mine!
