Bird Watching

Four different kinds of woodpeckers were at the feeder yesterday. The redheaded woodpecker, hairy woodpecker (which I’ve never seen at the feeders before), and the red-bellied woodpecker. I missed catching the pileated (Woody Woodpecker). Camera was in the wrong place and by the time I got set up, he was gone.

Also, a baby blue jay and baby robin! A baby squirrel too and a ladybug, but will show it off tomorrow.

Working on edits on Red Wolf. Moving things around. Deleting, adding, have added 3,000 words.

Have a great day!! I’ve got to keep working!

I Am So Far Behind!

Goldfinch considering her next move, Red-bellied woodpecker watching me, goldfinch that insists the sunflower seed is really her size.

I worked on the novella last night for Heart of the Wolf and wrote 4,000 words! I have 8,000 now, and need another 12,000. So I’m nearly halfway there, which means the downhill slide. 🙂 Then it’s back to working on Flight of the Wolf once this is done. Way behind on it. BUT, that’s because I didn’t have all these other deadlines that popped up in the middle of it.

And I need to do the print versions of Galaxy Warrior and Loving the White Bear. And a Letter to Readers for Heart of the Wolf.

So long ways to go. Doggie sitting the corgis for the next several days. And have a reader’s convention to go to. And have 6 books to read for the Ritas.

Okay, so that means I have no time to take pictures.NOT.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to get to the halfway point on Night of the Wolf, until I come up with a better title. That’s the one I had when I started it.

I’ve never seen bluebirds ever. But I kept seeing birds flying around the window when I had the blinds open. They’re after bugs caught in the corner of the house. I thought they were just a bunch of sparrows. So I finally pulled up the blinds so I could watch them while I was typing on my story. Yes, I was really writing. Trying to write. Hey, I got my word count and one of the promo blogs done. 🙂

But I was so surprised to see bluebirds, I had to try and take pictures of them. This is through a screened window, so not the best shots, but still, I was thrilled. But then I saw another bird, not sure what it was. A mockingbird also flew in there, but the bluebirds chased him off. And then I’m not sure what the other bird was on the roof. It looked different from the other on the roof that I believe is the same bird underneath the eves, a small gray and black banded bird with pale yellow feathers on it’s belly and throat. It looks white in some pictures, but it was actually yellow.

It’s not a sparrow. I have tons of those and it’s not the same.

Okay, back to writing. Have a super great Saturday!!!

Bears and Birds and Yes, Books!

Purple Sweater Bear 001 (640x549)

Okay, another bear order, and two more for clan bears. I’ve run out of made up bears and have to start from scratch again!

But I was excited to see the female cardinal finally was eating at one of the feeders. I’m sure that she wouldn’t have liked it if she had known I took a picture of her with her mouth, well, technically beak, full.  cardinal eating on feeder

I’m off to now work on books! 🙂  But the bears are ready to ship to Australia and Kansas!

Have a super great Thursday!

Not Just Bird Watching!

IMG_4639 (640x427)

When I was a kid, I was taught to always do my homework before I could play. That work ethic was drummed into me and so it stuck with me all my life. So the last thing I did AFTER I did all the other things I HAD to do, was tried to coax the cardinals to come out and play. I went outside and was shocked that all their bird seed was gone.

We had 30 mph winds, so I was thinking that it just scattered. But what if the birds had eaten it? I poured some more on the patio, and then went back to working on the bears I needed to make for another shipment to Australia. (Now it suspiciously sounds like I hadn’t finished all my work before I went to play with the birds, but in truth, I had only planned to finish one bear and had done so, but after the break I was ready to finish the other. Just had to clarify there! 🙂 ) And when I went into the kitchen for a cup of hot tea, there they were! Both the male and female cardinals!

She was watching me from the tree as I took the pictures from the window.  Several were blurry, but this one turned out beautifully, which reminds me, just like with my writing, not everything will be perfect the first time. Sometimes I will have to rewrite something a few times before it works for me. 🙂

I’m still waiting for it to get light out so I can take the pictures of the finished bears, and I missed a couple of historical romance books for the raffle basket I’m taking to RT Convention and another author wanted to send hers also. And then two more authors wanted to add to the contemporary basket.

But here is the contemporary basket for one lucky raffle winner. I had to have these posted by Feb 1, so deadline drawing near!

contemporary (640x454)

I finished rereading Jaguar Pride, and will now set it aside and give it a rest for a couple of days, then reread it again.

So what’s next? Still have 3 more guest blogs to write, 4 interviews that I need the questions for, and need to get the bears ready to ship, still waiting on one sweater to arrive for one of the bears. And I’ve got 3 Rita books left to read.

I’ve started writing a ton of books, and I have another deadline coming up for another–June, but with the conferences, it will be here before I know it.

So it’s light out enough, and I’m off to take some pictures–not just fun pictures (even though taking all pictures are fun for me), but pictures of the bears and the updated historical romance basket giveaway!

Are you an “eat dessert first” kind of person, or do you do your chores, and then get to play?

Have a super great day!
