The Grinch Who Stole My Time…

I went to post on Wednesday before baby got here, which makes it nearly impossible to do and got a network error. Tried later. Network error. Later. Same thing. With watching baby and running dogs in and out, and having to take her to her mother’s work to see Grinch-themed gingerbread cakes at Spring ISD, and decorated doors in the Nutrition Center, and have a Christmas party, I didn’t have time to mess with it. I’d shut my computer down twice, still no resolution. So later that night, I finally managed to reinstall Firefox and I was up and running.

Then in the middle of the night, violent thunderstorms hit and I was up, disconnecting my main PC and laptop, and couldn’t sleep because of the storm. I ended up taking video of the lightning and rain.

I managed finally to get 2500 words done on Claiming the White Bear yesterday. But I totally missed doing the blog again!

So here it is, Friday already and the Grinch stole two of my days! Seriously!

But I’m going to get him back and show him I can make up for it with my writing today. Really.

Have a very happy Grinch-less day!!

Not to Spoil a Fantasy, but…

Being a Fairy Princess

When I was a child, I wanted to be a fairy princess…but then you grow up and you learn that castles take a lot of upkeep–taxes, maintenance, and well, upkeep. Can you imagine dusting it? And then there are the fairy gardens. Having gardens of my own, that never look like this, I know just how much work they are.

And even if you could afford to hire all of it done, then you have all the issues of hired labor–insurance, salaries, grumbling.

But in a fairy-tale world? They don’t mention all of that. Okay, speaking of the real world, just fed baby and we’re going to take a walk in the cold, but it’s finally light out enough. But you know what? We’ll be fairy princesses on our walk because we can be.

Have a great one!!! Be a prince or a king or a queen or a princess. You can be! And have fun.

Do You Ever Feel You’re Fighting a Dragon?

Sometimes you have to just battle a dragon, or two, to get what you want.

Back to writing! Have a great day!!!!

Watch out for the Vultures

I think of death and dying when I think of vultures, and these poor critters are in trouble. But really, the vultures are scavengers, cleaning up the leftovers, so these animals are just living in a symbiotic relationship.

My mom and dad had a great sense of humor, and they were horror fans, so one year, my mom got my dad the cutest stuffed vulture, and they used to switch it from her pillow to his. You see where I get my humor from now? It’s not my fault!

Hope everyone is enjoying their day. We had pouring rain all day and night and were under flash flood warnings. And I got 4,000 written on Claiming the White Bear, over halfway done. Yay!

Off to work, have a wonderful day and if the vultures start circling, maybe it’s not you they’re after. Maybe…

Done! Woodland Fae!

It’s raining leaves in the wind, but these are some trees in bloom that I managed to capture before they are bare.

I need to have a couple of beta readers read Woodland Fae, and it’s done! But the story is written and I proofed it all the way through.

In the meantime, I’ve got to get back to Claiming the White Bear. And no, I don’t write a book in a week. lol But I’ve started these quite a while back, not sure on Woodland Fae, but on Claiming the White Bear, before Christmas of last year.

Have a great day!!! I have baby again tomorrow and so today, I’ve got to get hopping. Oh, library day was fun. She was soooo good. Next week is their last program until some time after the new year, but Barnes and Noble has a children’s program, so I’ll take her to those. Off to work!

Wizard Bear and Halloween Bear!

They are off to their forever home! I’ve got to reread SEAL Wolf Undercover one more time and then turn it in! I was up until midnight working on the bears, finishing SEAL Wolf changes, and felt great! I couldn’t go to sleep so I started working on the long synopsis for Silver Town Wolf Christmas and that did it! Out like a light. lol

Just got a paragraph. lol

Off and running! Have a super, wonderful, stupendous day!!!

Thanksgiving Bears

https://celticbears.wordpress.com/thanksgiving-bears/

I was asked if I had a Thanksgiving bear because several of my teddy bear enthusiasts decorate for all the holidays with my teddy bears. So these are two that I made for the Thanksgiving holidays. My teddy bear orders are stacking up (Halloween bear, new baby bear, wizard bear, Steampunk bear, panda bear with tartan sash and bonnet, butterscotch bear with tartan sash and bonnet, and a larger size bear), but I finished Silver Town, and now I’m working on first edits on SEAL Wolf Surrender and I have several promo blogs to do for A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas. It’s releasing October. I’m halfway through on edits for SEAL Wolf Surrender, so hope I can finish that today and turn it in tomorrow then do the promo blogs, and begin working on bears. And then I’m shuffling between Claiming the White Bear and Stryker’s Cougar story.

Oh, and Flo Featherspoon Steampunk Bear is off to her forever home.

With reading and doing edits, I walked 5 miles yesterday!

Okay, I’m off to edit and exercise! We had a 107 degree heat index yesterday. I’ll be so glad when it starts to cool down! But we can have another month of heat…so I need to think of snow and fall and winter and ice and cold… We’ve been having thunderstorms, some off in the distance, thunder rumbling, huge thunderheads, and no rain.

Hope your day is just the way you like it! Have a great one!

Getting Distracted While Already Distracted…

How often does that happen to you?

I wanted to do too many things at once, and was halfway preparing a lunch, feeding the birds, putting groceries away, reheating my tea, too many things at once. So I have a potato partly peeled, the microwave dinger is going off, I need to empty the pot of water (recycle water as much as possible) into the hanging plants before I can boil my potato, see the birdfeeder is empty, return to start the potato, get distracted by the meat I want to divide up and freeze, and still haven’t started my lunch.

Time out. One thing at a time. Do I? Do one thing at a time? Nope. But I did grab my tea out of the microwave to stop the annoying dinger from dinging and driving me batty.

Off to work on the story. I had to run errands today, which always puts me off on my writing. But with the new chair, I’m happily writing away, except, when I’m at my desk…I see the birds: a lovely little female cardinal, two mourning doves sleeping at the base of the rosebush, a rare sighting of a little chickadee. Aww, darn it. I need my camera.

So now I’m set up, waiting for the chickadee or cardinal to return, took pictures of the hot, little, sleepy doves

…and yes, getting to my blog super late, and 3/4ths of the way done on my word count. It’s working!!! These are older pictures I took of chickadees, and oh, wow, I just saw a green Carolina anole puff out his red throat!!! I’ve never see that before, but I didn’t catch it! Okay, eyes on manuscript. No more looking out window.

Have a great rest of the day!!!

North Shore Lake Superior & Butterflies at Como Zoo

Everything was blue, the water, the clouds–a mist on the water making it blend with the sky.

Butterflies and the flowers were beautiful at the Como Zoo. They were sitting all over the place, perfect little models. I’ll have to share more later! Over 50 varieties of butterflies!

Hope your day is filled with butterflies!! Off to the Arboretum.

It’s Okay if I Don’t Write!

I took off the week from writing, though I managed to get 2500 written this week anyway. But this is a research trip, and I signed books at a Barnes and Noble. I’ll use my travels for a story setting in one of my future books. I’ve been up here before, but more to see the wolves and their behavior, and to enjoy the other sites. Even so, I’ve set one of the white wolf stories in Ely during the winter based on my first trip up here, and I’ll have to do one for some shifter story for the summer after seeing all the flowers in abundance, experiencing the weather–hot, stormy, cool, etc.

Bears and wolves and rain, oh my! It poured so hard, we finally had to pull off the road, but it wasn’t letting up, so after a little wait, we continued on our way, ended up on a gravel road and finally back to civilization.

We’ve been brainstorming the whole time too, and I’ve been taking notes, so that’s important, and we’ve been halfway listening to Silver Wolf Christmas, which helps me to remember some of the character details and setting for Silver Town, since I’m writing the next book in the Silver Town series. So see? I’m not goofing off…too much. 🙂

Okay, were off to see the zoo. Tomorrow it will be the arboretum. It might be iffy on the weather. Hope we’re not rained out on either day! We were going to market last night, but as you can see by the rain we were having, it was a no-go.

Have a super, great day!!!
