Smiling Cheetah

All I had to say to the cheetah to get that toothy grin was: Red meat!

That, and it’s all in the way you say it.

Off to write. Didn’t get any more than 241 words yesterday with the baby here. Couldn’t sleep last night. Was up pulling weeds in the muggy heat this morning, even at 7 am. I’m determined to get 4,000 words today. Will I? Heck, I was determined to get 1,000 words yesterday.

I just love this picture. These are juvenile cheetahs, and momma is in the background with another sibling. I love cheetahs, but to frame a smiling cheetah while a sibling stretches his body in front of him was pretty cool. The smiling cheetah reminds me of “Smiling Faces Sometimes,” by the Undisputed Truth. Yeah. “Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes they don’t tell the truth…”

Smiling. Have a beautiful day!

Wild Thing

Colorful Umbrellas Reflected in the Water, Riverwalk, San Antonio
Cheetah Chilling

I spent so much time pulling grass and weeds you’d think I had no grass left. Nope. It’s like a stimulant. Pull grass, five more pop up in its place. So every morning for a couple of hours while it’s cooler, I pull grass and weeds, put down bark mulch, return to house, and write. Which meant? I forgot to blog!

Something has to give. Today is my daughter’s last Friday off, so we’re having breakfast in a few minutes, and I couldn’t put down more bark mulch. So we’re off!

Have a wonderful day!!!

It’s Cool Out!

Dreamy Cheetah, Dallas, Texas

Well, my post went off yesterday instead of today, so trying this again.

Riverwalk, San Antonio, Texas

My latest obsession: textured art.

Okay, baby’s here. Weather is cool. Shocker!!!! I spent half of yesterday pulling weeds because it was cooler than usual. Soooooo great!

Off to babysit. Have a fun day!

365 Photography Challenge

https://www.facebook.com/groups/327949204725030/

I love to take photos but it’s fun to get prompts on what to photograph. So I joined this Facebook group to do it. But had to post a bunch of pictures to kind of catch up.

In the meantime, I finished proofreading 100 pages of Silver Town Wolves and need to finish another 140 pages. So off to do that in a minute.

I had taken the first picture at a big cat reserve in Dallas where they take in cat rescues. Though they also had a pack of Arctic wolves and bears. The second version was using Photoshop’s Curves adjustment. I like the original photo, but the Curves adjustment helps to bring the color in line with what it really looked like. Not sure what settings I had my camera on that made it look so golden. And the third picture is an “oil” version with Topaz Studio.

This is from Ashe Designs. It really worked well with some of my animal photos.

Okay, I’m off to work! And back to exercising while I proof! Have a great day!!!

Arctic Wolf Pack and Cheetah!

Wild grasses at the wetlands in Dallas, and a cheetah and an Arctic wolf pack at the Big Cat Org near Fort Worth. Love cheetahs!!! And the wolves were especially what I wanted to see, but they wouldn’t let us “see” them. Thankfully, my zoom lens was able to capture the beautiful pack as we were led through the park away from seeing the wolves. I’ve been to tons of wolf reserves, and none where the tour guide would say, “We’ll upset the wolves if we walk near them.”

We are enrichment to them, as long as you don’t have an obnoxious kid or adult in the group. But you can see how curious they were about all of us. One tiger had been in a circus, boo, so he didn’t like to be on display, and I don’t blame him. But “nobody” else minded–the tigers, bears, cheetah, or wolves. They came to drink their water, close to where we were, watched us. We were as much entertainment for them as they are for us.

Meeting deadlines: The thing about deadlines is they cometh and they goeth. So if you don’t get your act together, they cometh and goeth before you’re ready…and you can’t stop them!!! I always think, when I’m getting down to the wire on one, or several, that this too shall pass. Hopefully, when I’ve met them though!!!

I turned in Flight final proof and Billionaire marketing materials request. I spent all the rest of the day reading the other wolf book. And I just received one beta read back so will be spending all morning +, making changes on Billionaire Wolf Christmas. I HAVE to get groceries too. Still fighting this cold, coughed half the night. Ugh. But I’m nearly there!!!! On meeting deadlines. So close….

Hope you meet all your deadlines and have fun doing it!

Have a great deadline free day!!!

Big Cats are Beautiful

Cougar, lioness, tiger, white tiger, cheetah,  jaguar, and snow leopard!

Have a super great day!!

That Hectic Time of Year

cheetah-540-lying-down-in-grass-color-blast-841Some days you just want to laze around, don’t you? No matter how many people are watching you to see if you’ll do something?

I sort of “finished” Loving the White Bear. “Sort of”, because I still need transitions between scenes, making out scenes, and I’m still moving around scenes. But the story is done–as in it has an epilogue. lol Hey, you gotta start somewhere…or should I say end it already. 🙂

polar-bear-foggy-picture-900-sooc-1205

So after typing the millions of changes, I’ve got to reprint out and review it again, to see if the story is coming together at the end. While I’m writing, I constantly edit, so the beginning and middle are much more ready than the end. 🙂

I’ve GOT to get groceries today. My list has become as long as Santas–stuff for wassail, for stuffing, for coffee, pumpkin pie for my son, sweet potatoes for my son and daughter. Poor deprived kids. I love potatoes and not into sweet potatoes, so my SIL and I still have the regular ones. 🙂

Okay, off to edits. What I’ve found if I don’t do them, they don’t miraculously get done. 🙂 And I need to clean house for my son’s arrival tomorrow. Christmas is getting close!

Have a wonderful day!
