Giraffe at Legoland

giraffe-legoland-and-giraffes-added-900This is a work in progress. I realized too late I forgot to share an excerpt yesterday. I’ll do so tomorrow. I took this picture at Legoland in Chicago.

Had a million requests for stuff yesterday from everyone and finished some of them, but have a ton more I need to do, anything from signing a contract for another three books, discovering my insurance company has been charging me for the house I sold in March, and now, even after I told them it was sold and take it off, twice!, I have to prove when I sold it. The paperwork is SOMEWHERE. I spent until midnight last night looking for it. Found all the contract stuff, but not the actual title showing the sale was complete. Have no idea where I “filed” it. That was in part due to having just moved here, was still unpacking boxes, and trying to figure out where to put all this paperwork coming in for everything. But at least I cleaned out stuff I didn’t need and put it out for the trash this morning. Always have to look at the bright side. 🙂

And I have to go back into Kissing the Highlander, add links, and do a bunch of stuff with it, pronto.

And I had a request for promo that I had done, but apparently it went missing, so had to resend. But with everything else going on, I was glad I had that covered.

And White Wolf Christmas is due November 1st, so wrapping up edits, trying to keep up with wordcount on Double Cougar Trouble.

So last night I had pizza at my daughter’s house and we watched baby photographing videos. My daughter told me she’d sleep while I did them. lol She probably will.

Okay off to work on something! Have a great one!

Tree Branch Shadow Art

I love clouds and water and trees and birds. The Canada geese were collecting material for bird’s nests. All of them had their beaks full of the mulch around the trees. And most of the boats are still not in the water because Chicago can still get a late freeze. This is Lake Michigan and it was a beautiful clear day. Bonnie, who lives in Chicago, says that it’s often a gray day in the winter/spring. But it was beautiful when I was at the lake that day. 🙂

I was trying to get a picture of the Canada geese, but I had my point and shoot camera so the geese didn’t turn out that well. But I loved the blue sky highlighting the still bare branches and the tree branch shadows on the grass. Do you see the ferris wheel at Navy Pier?

Have a super great day!

Back to the writing!

Eyes on the Palmer House–the Haunted Hotel in Chicago

Eyes at the Palmer House

I did not add the square lights to the eyes. They were there when I found them. 🙂

The sculptures and other ornamentation were beautiful in the Palmer House.

Just for the record: We did not see any ghosts.

Isn’t the hotel beautiful? And it has all kinds of pictures of celebrities who performed here in the early days.

Okay, I’m home from conference and that means I’ve got to get back to work. No more chasing ghosts at opulent hotels or sightseeing other places. No more book signings and margaritas and dinners out. No more just plain fun. Until the next time. 🙂

Have a beautiful Monday!
