Baby Cardinals

Still doggy sitting. Kids didn’t get in until really late last night. Even with running dogs in an out all day yesterday, I managed to get 4,000 words. Still 26,000 word behind from my original goal. (Due to stopping to write a novella, edit a book, and proof another–I have to remind myself.)

But yesterday, I kept noticing that every time I went out with the dogs, one or two at a time, a female cardinal was having fits. Normally, they fly off, but this time, she just kept chirping at all of us. So late last night while I was working on my computer, I saw two of them in the rosebush. I was thinking they were the momma and baby, but they’re two babies, their beaks not orange yet. The feeder is above them, but empty. The squirrels knocked all the food out of them on the ground, and they’ve claimed the feeders and the food on the ground for their own. lol

Tenacious little baby birds. Normally, the adult cardinals just fly off when the other birds come to eat–the blue jays, woodpeckers, mockingbirds, and doves. But these baby females are hungry and momma and daddy told them this food was for them.

Okay, hoping the kids don’t sleep in too late and come and pick up their furbabies soon. I’m trying for 3,000 a day to try and catch up. My goal is normally 2,000 a day. But now I have to write two more novellas, so I need to get cracking.

Have a beautiful day! We had a great storm yesterday, supposed to rain today, but it looks clear now. Hope to get some more baby bird pictures when it’s a little lighter out!

Remember, even if you’re trying to get stuff done, notice the wonders of life around you. It’s amazing what goes on outside of us.

Sleepy Puppies

Until they see the cat.

A story can be that way, just sleepy, until something draws everyone together for a common goal. Prey.

Oh, and Tanner is always up for a mug shot. He needs a face trim, but he doesn’t care. If I’m trying to take a picture of the other dogs, he wants in on the action. To my surprise, so did Max. He usually doesn’t like having his picture taken. It’s just something he has to put up with. But if I’m taking pictures of his cousins? He wants to be included.

As you can see, I was really writing. Really.

Off to get started on it…well, after everyone has another potty break. I love taking pictures of the cat, but I’m hoping he doesn’t come around because of the dogs. My earlier dogs were raised with cats, so no problem. But these haven’t been.

Have a wonderfully, exciting day! 🙂 I made it to 50K! Woohoo! 30K to go.

Teddy Bear Room AKA The Doggy Corral

all doggies 001 (1280x745)all doggies 004 (1280x853)I never thought the Teddy Bear Room would turn into the Doggy Corral. But it really worked while my son unpacked his car. One place for all the dogs. No escaping the house. Perfect.

I had doors like that at the other house, and it really helps to keep everyone in one place.  All the dogs get along fine. I’m getting potty breaks down to a science. The three small ones and one corgi on leash go out at a time. And then the last corgi with any of the little dogs that haven’t done all their business.

I was taking two dogs out on a leash at a time. But the 2 corgis got into a fight with each other over the neighbor’s dog being out on the other side of the fence. And I had a terrible time trying to break them up, so I figured, one corgi at a time. More manageable. My dogs ignore the other dog. And Mishka did too. 🙂

Okay, off to take the corgis out next. Trying not to disturb my son’s sleep this morning, though I warned him, I might not be successful. 🙂

Going to the Dogs…

window max, new flowers, water fountain 004 (640x427)Isn’t it?

Okay, I’m still working on the story, hope I have transferred everything I need and can transfer to my external hard drive. I just learned from my son that he needs me to take care of his dog, Mishka, while he goes to Alaska on another AF mission.

Max, Tanner, Mishka and me (640x548)So this will be me, minus the Christmas tree. 🙂

Mishka was so clueless here. She usually wants on my lap too.

Still no Facebook, and the hard drive might not be installed until Thursday. *sigh*

Oh, oh, oh, but the great news is that even though my property taxes didn’t show a homestead exemption, after looking for proof fruitlessly for the better part of the morning, I took the chance and called the tax office. They had the paperwork and it was recorded!!! So that was the great news for the day.

Have a great day!!!
