Kate and Leyton Hill from Taming the Wild Cougar

On and off, I was playing around with a family tree for one of my character families. I’m going to try and make one for each of the cougar shifters because I have fans that play their characters in a FB group. How cool is that?

I had Keira here yesterday, so I was taking her for a walk, she was actually walking the whole way, needed to wear her out, and then we went shopping, and she feel asleep for 2 1/2 hours, and then we played in the sprinkler and Grandmomma got as wet as the toddler, only I wasn’t wearing a bathing suit, and then she played in the wading pool. And her momma was late picking her up, so I only managed about 600 words on the book. *sigh* I was trying for a 1,000 at least.

So when I went to blog this morning, I had to mention a pet peeve I’ve mine: changing something that’s not broken. So WordPress has changed something that forces me to take another step. I used to just select one thing and write my blog. Now I have to go to Write and then select which WordPress site I want to write on. If I wanted to write on one of the others, I would have opened up those sites. Another step doesn’t sound like much, but when I’ve got an active toddler here, or piranha dogs, yes, my little fluff balls are like piranhas, then it takes away from what I should be doing….uhm, writing, catching up, not catching up. Not only that, but look at all the time I wasted talking about my pet peeve?

I just had to get that off my chest. Now I can go on with my life.

Did I mention that a woman nearly pulled out in front of me at the grocery store and would have caused a car wreck?

She was stopped at the stop sign. I was watching her. I thought she wasn’t going anywhere.

She. Was. Stopped.

But she looked right and then saw no cars were coming, she pulled out.

Right. In. Front. Of. Me.

I was going really slow, parking lot, but I still had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting her because I wasn’t stopping. Because I wasn’t supposed to. I expected her to look left, to see me, like any good driver would do. But she didn’t. She just pulled out, and at that point, I was only inches from her!

I hit my horn, which was a lame thing to do because she was already in my way and not stopping. She looked at me like she just couldn’t believe a car was inches from her passenger door. Like, how did I suddenly materialize next to her car?

Duh.

Look BOTH ways, lady! Cars drive BOTH ways. The good thing was I didn’t hit her. And the second good thing was it was a valuable reminder to her to look both ways, because if I’d been like some of the drivers in parking lots, I would have been driving faster and hit her. Well, yes, of course, if I’d been speeding through the parking lot, I might have passed her before she pulled out, but who knows, right?

Okay, got that off my chest. Now I’m free to write. lol!

Have a lovely, accident-free day!!!!

Running….

Granddaughter’s on her way and I’m sort of running this morning. Had to shut the computer down to get my internet to work.

These are a pretty purplish daylily that are having a field day! And the other is a watercolor version of them.

I’m WAY behind on word count on Billionaire because of having to edit the other book and write the novella, sooooo, I have to get cracking. 30,000 done, 50,000+ to go, and it’s due July 1st. At 2,000 a day on days I don’t have my granddaughter, it’s going to be tight, again. Next book, I’ll finally have more time. I hope. In July, I have another release, and that means more promo, and I haven’t even worked on the promo for the book releasing this month. Ugh.

Have a super, lovely day. I think I hear my granddaughter at the door!

Happy Mother’s Day!

From my son who is having fun in Italy with his wife on their honeymoon.

And for my daughter!

We’re having a Mother’s Day dinner tonight, Mike cooking!

If I can find miniature roses, I’ll start a tradition of giving them to my daughter and to me each year like I did with my mother and I. Only they never lived. But the ones I planted here are doing great, so here’s hoping!

Got distracted and was doing a million things. Okay, I’m off to write before we celebrate Mother’s Day!!

Have a beautiful day!

Rhino Charging

What do you do if a rhino charges you? Take a picture! Selfie? Who said run away?

There was only a handful of us quietly watching the black rhino when he suddenly charged us. Then he realized he couldn’t get to us and he went off quietly to do his thing. But it made for a great picture. A couple of people moved back ready to run, but he really couldn’t get to us.

I don’t think.

I finally finished reading the first 26,000 words of Billionaire She-Wolf, so need another 54,000 for word count and I’m off and writing!

The schools were closed due to flooding yesterday, and so Keira stayed home. Thankfully, because I got a little bit done and she and her mother are sick. I don’t need to catch it too.

Have a lovely day!

Alpha wild dog telling the other to back off while he was eating, and hey, buddies are perfect for pillows.

Honeymooners are in Capri

Do you ever live vicariously through others? Reading, watching movies, listening to friends tell you about their trips? Sure.

And it’s fun!

Doesn’t that look like fun? I’m ready to go!

But…I need to revise the novella and send it to my editor, so working on it today. Tomorrow, I had planned to dive into my book that I’ve set aside while I had to write the novella and do the edits, but I have to do a makeup day for babysitting for granddaughter. What? Grandmas have to do makeup babysitting days???? She’s sick again, ugh, and I hope she doesn’t give it to me. I finally slept in this morning (7:15, yay!), no stupid phone alarm going off like it did on Tuesday morning–I swear the fae set it just to get me back for not writing their next story! Yep, I did not set it. And the tune was so fae like, I actually incorporated it in a dream, for a while. My phone is charging in another room, so that meant having to leave the bedroom and turn it off. I was so tired, I didn’t realize I just had set it on snooze. So I returned to bed, was about to fall asleep, and there’s that fae tune again. lol I think after I figured out how to turn it off, I was awake.

I really, really have to get back to the story! Have a super, lovely day. We’re headed for more storms! But while baby slept yesterday, I managed to get all my flowers and my tomato plants planted! Yum!

Swimming with the Dolphins!

Now that was a great experience for my son and daughter-in-law!

I think the dolphins are really shifters!

Okay, baby is here, so I’ve got to get busy, but I turned my novella over to my beta readers and then I’ll send the book to my editor on Friday. We had violent storms all day yesterday, flooding all over. I see we are down from 10 river flash flood warnings to 4 this morning. I hope to take Keira shopping and for a walk before the rains start again later this afternoon. And I need to get back into my Billionaire book too. It’s due July 1st.

Have a super day and if you’re in one of the regions where you’re getting bad weather, stay safe!

Sunrise and Stormclouds

A rainbow appeared and a ladybug landed on my chair when I first started taking pictures from my hotel room patio. Sunrise, rainbow, and storm clouds made for the perfect setting over the ocean.

I turned in Wolff Bros, and now just need to finish up White Wolf to the Rescue so I can jump back on Billionaire She-Wolf.

Have a great one!!!!

Can We Say Jet Lag????

Well, I arrived home at 9:30 am after being up all night flying, so I’ve unpacked and am just downloading camera pictures now. It’ll take a while. I have to pick up my doggies from my SIL after he gets home from work and we’re going out to eat. It’s 5 hours earlier for Hawaii time from Central Standard Time, so it meant I got in at 4:30 am. It will take me a couple of days to get adjusted. lol

I love Inge’s mom and her brother. They are the sweetest. The kids had a beach theme, but since their wedding landed on Star Wars Day, and we all love Star Wars, they also had some fun Star Wars stuff. The men in the bridal party had Star Wars tie tacks and cuff links. Pictures are still downloading. These are just cell phone shots. So I will share more later.

We had a great time! I even managed to get through edits on Wolff brothers, but just checking it over one last time today once I get it uploaded on my computer. And I made changes on the novella, but still need to finish it up.

Okay, I’m off to get some other things done before I have to pick up the doggies. Have a great day!!!! Even if it’s nearly done! I feel out of sync with the world. lol

Wedding was a Success!

Alpha peacock strutting his stuff.

I signed books at Barnes and Noble in Honolulu. Still working on edits on Wolff Brothers. Been busy most of the time in Honolulu, so only halfway done. I’m hoping to finish it up on Monday, and maybe the novella by Tuesday. But jetlag is an issue.

Left paradise and returned home, but the heat and humidity still feels the same so I can imagine being in paradise still, if I close my eyes.

Have a great day!!
