Morning Pictures–and the feel of the Paranormal

I “finished” writing A Silver Wolf Christmas, which means I’m still working on revisions, but it’s done! And so I worked on bears, still have about 20 to go but here is a picture of the 9 headless bears! They’re stuffed, and some of the arms and legs are closed. I’ll finish closing the seams on the legs and arms tonight, and sew up the heads. 🙂

To go along with headless bears and the look of Halloween, the paranormal, etc., here is a picture of the full moon this morning!

And if that wasn’t enough, my chewed up pistachio, but it’s kind of hard to show that the grasshoppers are devouring it.

And a really cool picture of a spiderweb, perfect for that Halloween look.

And I started re-reading Call of the Cougar, so hopefully I can finish writing that in the next couple of weeks and edit it too.

Off to ship bears!

Have a super great, wait, got to get the garbage out Wednesday!

Are You a Morning Person? Or a Night Person?

Do you fall out of bed ready to take over the world? No coffee needed? Or do you have to have your second cup before you can make sense of everything?

I’m an early morning person, but this morning….I think I am more of a later morning person. The problem is I’m burning the candles at both ends: reached word count, finished lesson critiques, finished two bears, more lessons arrived, but planned to tackle them today, worked on edits late, and am up early again.

I might have stayed in bed for a few more minutes, not to sleep, but to…wake up. But, I remembered I had to put out a water sample by 8 am for the water department. If I had thought of it, I would have done it yesterday. But you couldn’t use the faucet for 6 hours and I wasn’t sure I hadn’t. Then I had to fill the bottle with a certain amount of water. It was supposed to be marked on the bottle. It wasn’t. I have no idea how much it was supposed to be. I may be doing this again. 🙂 <3

Here are the two bears I finished last night.

Okay, off to get the day going on word count! 8,000 words to go!

And I might have word soon about the books I pitched. Will let you know.

Have a super great TGIF!

Reflections after the Storm & Rainbow Momma and Baby Bear!

I was getting ready to pick up groceries when I saw the beautiful artwork on my driveway–clouds, the blue sky, the cypress tree and crepe myrtles. I couldn’t paint a scene for anything, but isn’t this scene “painted” pavement beautiful?

Morning Glories and the Butterfly

Do you see it? With the golden cornstalks behind the ligustrum, the purple morning glories and the butterfly sipping from the flower?

Drawing closer.

A surreal picture of the butterfly, wings spread. Isn’t it cool? Oh, yeah, some would say it’s just a blurry butterfly. But to me, it’s beautiful.

Do you see the beauty in the center of the golden cornstalks?

Okay, I’m off to work on more student lessons! And then it’s off to work on A Silver Wolf Christmas. I was ahead yesterday, which I’ll use today because of having to critique so many lessons. I had to water, which is the reason I saw the butterfly, then had to get the camera, and take pictures, and yes, any excuse, right??? And I haven’t started on proofing Jaguar Pride yet, but that’s next too. AND I’d love to work on more bears. I need more hours in a day! 🙂 <3

Do you ever feel that way?

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Artistic Outdoor Furniture, Charlotte, NC Park

We had a lot of fun in Charlotte, and one of the places we enjoyed seeing was a nearby park. In a few of the outdoor “rooms,” they were decorated with fun furniture!

Bonnie and I had fun after grabbing some breakfast at Panera and I still was drinking my hot chocolate. 🙂

Charlotte, NC 041 (640x427) Charlotte, NC 039 (640x427)

The weather was beautiful there while it was so hot in Texas! Really enjoyed it. No bugs either!

Charlotte, NC 043 (640x427)

And they had signs all over saying how far we were from other locations. Loved it.

I reached 30,000 on A Silver Wolf Christmas, and so I’m off to write the next 10,000 to reach a goal of 40,000 by Sunday. Hopefully. I have a couple more bears I’ve got to make also this weekend and get them all out on Monday.

Oh, and Donna Fournier and I are invited to a special bonfire and fireside chat with a wolf expert at The International Wolf Center in Ely, MN, so I’m so excited about that. And thanks so much to Donna for arranging it and for everything else she’s done to make this trip the best! 🙂 <3

Okay, off to work, and HAPPY TGIF!!! 🙂 <3

A Sale! Sold! A Silver Wolf Christmas–Oct 2015 Release Date!

Another book sale

I usually pitch three books at a time, but I had 6 books to complete on one contract and was asked to do another, so I had 7 and it took forever to write that many books. So I’m trying to keep it down to 3 books that I have to write at any one time. Though in truth, I’m nearly done with Jaguar Pride. Still, I’ll need to work on edits after I’ve written THE END.

Coyote (640x397)

I had a lovely time at the zoo yesterday, though I wasn’t thinking that it was a holiday, so it was packed. Animals that are usually fairly quiet or sleeping were agitated with all the noise at the zoo. Some of the animals that are usually quite active were worn out. This is a coyote that had crashed. Her mate was nearby but hidden.

Because of goofing off, I only got 1,000 done on my mss instead of 2, which means I will have to write 3,000 today. See how that works? It’s like getting deeper in debt. By huge amounts. If I’d done what I was supposed to have done, I wouldn’t have so much more to do. 🙂

And I really, really want to finish the book by this weekend. That will give me a couple of weeks to keep revising it. That’s the really fun part. 🙂

I still haven’t come up with the end. Okay, I’ll let you in on a secret. My characters often tell me how it ends. And when it’s the right time, they’ll let me know. You might think that’s crazy, but it’s true. I can brainstorm all I want, but I come down to that end, and all of a sudden, I have it! You don’t think I came up with it all on my own, now do you?

Have a super Tuesday!!!
