Blues of Spring

With this one, we just had to create a title, two framed pictures, flowers and ribbon overlays. These are pictures of the bluebirds and blue jays in my yard.

Love blue!

Okay before I get even more behind on my writing, I’m off to write!

Have a beautiful day.

Bluebird Bathing Photo Art

A whole family of bluebirds love to bathe in the fountain. Here is a male having a good time of it!

It turned cold and we had 2 inches of rain yesterday. The thunderstorm knocked out all my Christmas lights.

I have to work on Emerald Isle of Mists today and try to figure out a synopsis for the new Wolff sister story and work on promo blogs for the upcoming release of the book coming out in January. Also for the 10th Anniversary edition of Silence of the Wolf coming out next week???

Have a super fun day!!

Little Bluebird Checking out Treats–Photo Art

Little bluebird trying to figure out what will be the best seeds to eat.

Well, I shipped off the rest of the bears and the last book yesterday, dancercized with my daughter for a while, and then early evening, she said she was having steady contractions so I took my granddaughter home with me last night. I can’t get her to sleep in her own bed where she could have all the star lights racing across the room or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star playing for hours that soothes her, but drives me mad.

So I have her on her mat for a few minutes in my room, but then she was crying. *sigh*

She ends up in bed with me, though I have been able to get her down for naps on her mat some afternoons I have her. Then when she fell asleep, I turned off the music, yay! Still had to endure the wildly rolling lights. But she was clinging to me and I finally went to the other side of the bed to have some me space and the next thing I know, she’s clinging to me again. lol

I did finally manage to sleep some though. I asked her if she noticed I moved to the other side of the bed last night.

“Yes, and I followed you.”

I just had to laugh. So then this morning, she did NOT want to go to preschool. I told her that her teacher would be sad–she adores her teacher, and that I might end up having her overnight again if the baby tries to come. I normally have her here Wed and Thurs, so no preschool, and I hope I sleep better! Anyway, she’s at school for now and that means I need to get something done on my writing before I have to pick her up! I may end up at my daughter’s house in the middle of the night, or I might just keep Keira tonight, who knows. The baby doesn’t want to come.

All right, got to get to work!

Have a super, lovely day! Mine, I fear, is going to be crazy.

Bluebird

I love the little bluebirds. I didn’t ever think they’d come, just seeing one in a blue moon, and now I have several.

I began working on the edits on Jingle Bell Wolf. I go through it one time, twice, three times, accepting all the small stuff. Now I’m printing out chapters and rereading them and making changes. I just need to take a break from the computer to see what needs to be changed and a printed version helps me to see that. I still have a long way to go, but no picking up my granddaughter tomorrow, so I hope to have today and tomorrow that are fairly disruption free and get further on it. I have a prologue, epilogue, and 24 chapters, so I’m through the 1st 3 chapters and the prologue.

I also received another bear order, so I have that to do. I cut it out last night.

Plum Bear

I need to get some word count on White Wolf, added 4,000 yesterday, added 2,000 words to Angel Fae yesterday also.

Off to work! The day is slipping away!!! Have a great day!

Pretty Little Bluebird

Male bluebird on the shepherd’s hook that’s holding the birdseed

Said goodbye to my son this morning. I don’t know when we’ll be able to get together again, things being what they are, but we had a lovely visit for two weeks!

He has a 15-hour drive, so we got up really early to have donuts and coffee/tea, with my daughter and then he was off.

I’m off to write, but we’ve been going to bed so late and my internal alarm clock won’t shut off, so I’m up still really early every morning. It will be nice to get on more of a regular schedule and try to get closer to 8 hours of sleep. The last few nights it’s been 4 or 5 hours and that’s just not enough!

I decided to add a prologue to Primal Desire, and maybe an epilogue so off to chase off a monster.

Have a great day!

Blue Bird

Still have an awful sore throat. Hoping it’s not strep. They say young children under 5 shouldn’t get it, and adults don’t either, but little one goes to daycare 3 days a week, so it’s like going to school and picking up everything. She’s had strep before, and I’ve had it after she was sick and then I became sick.

The problem is she’s always wanting hugs and to sit on my lap and read stories, and then she’s sneezing and coughing, and the next thing you know, Grandma’s got it. But I still wouldn’t give up the hugs and lap sitting to read her stories.

I did manage to finish proofing Joy to the World and sent it in and wrote 2,000 words on Wolf in Need. I was awake most of the night with this awful sore throat, but it’s feeling not as bad this morning when I swallow. Here’s hoping it will go away on its own.

Have a beautiful day! It’s nice and warm here, and feels great!

Bath Time for Birds

I’ve never seen a bird take a bath in the fountain. Smart bird. Hot day. This juvenile cardinal was having a ball.

I managed 2,000 words yesterday. I wanted to write more. I was reading an article about sleep. Six hours or less a day is equivalent to 2 days with no sleep as far as the brain functioning well. Okay, so I definitely need brain function to write. Now how do I sleep better????

Baby is on her way. Bug terminator better be on his way. I have a swarm of red wasps in my foyer. They don’t seem to be building a nest, not that I can see. Though I am avoiding the area. I tried taking pictures from inside the house. I had to have my daughter drop my granddaughter off in through the garage until the terminator gets here.

One day when I lived in Crawford, Texas, I was watching out the window as I was writing my story, and saw several bluebirds diving at a wasp nest they were building. Every time a new wasp showed up to add to the nest, one of the bluebirds would dive down and the wasp was history. It was wonderful!!! I was having a terrible time with the wasps. Hate using hornet spray, but the best little bug killers around? Bluebirds. I’ve never seen anything like it!

Have a wasp-free day!!!

The Eyes Have It…

If you can focus on anything–aim for the eyes. 🙂 <3

It’s like windows to the soul.

Off to write!!! Have a super great day!

Hungry, Cold Birds

Red-bellied woodpecker, blue jay and baby bluebird.

Well, it was cold, cold, cold out, but I was trying to finish the grass and weed pulling before it gets hot, hot, hot. So I did all the backyard flowerbeds, shrieked in terror when, without having gardening gloves on like I should have, nearly pulled up a snake with the weeds. I got my shovel out, scooped the cold critter up, and put him on the island of plants in the middle of our street. Hopefully, he stays there. That’s the second snake I’ve found in my plants this year while pulling weeds. They’re good, not evil, but I still don’t want them in the plants, giving me a heart attack.

I kept thinking, people are going to think I’m planning to dig up the irises in the island flowerbed. I mean, who would carry a shovel across the street otherwise, right? A neighbor was leaving in her car, and rolled down her window, and said, “Snake, right?”

I laughed. “Yes! But I don’t want him in my yard.”

She motioned to the island flowerbed and said, “That’s a great place for him.”

Yep, if he stays there! I put on my gloves after that. lol

So I reached 7,000 words yesterday SEAL Wolf Surrender, and I’m off to write. You know, I only tell you this to keep me accountable, whether you want to hear it or not. Just so you know. lol If I tell someone, then I feel guilty if I don’t get to my word count each day (minus the two days I have baby–between running after her and being worn out by the time she leaves, I need me time)…but even then, I try to get some word count to get ahead. In fact, I’d blocked out the week for jury duty, so I wasn’t scheduled to write anything. That means I’m 7,000 words ahead. I was supposed to write my first 2,000 today. 🙂 But I tell myself, they don’t count–in other words–I don’t get a reprieve. I just have them in case something happens and I CAN’T write.

So with that said, I need to get my word count and make a bear!!! Have a lovely day!

Swallowtail Butterfly & Birds

Okay, so this morning it’s hot and muggy and I was thinking of running out early to get errands run, but then I saw a hummingbird feeding off one of the flowers. And a tufted titmouse, and I thought, forget the errand running, get the camera out, clean the windows, and take pictures.

You see where my priorities are?

Have a great and wonderful day! 🙂  Running errands is overrated.
