Duck, Pelican, Witch and Jaguar…

Duck that makes a funny chirping sound. I was showing the picture to my granddaughter who wanted to pet the duck at the zoo, so when she saw it on my monitor, she thought it was real. After I asked her what the duck says, quack-quack, she wanted to pet the duck. lol And the brown pelican was eyeing me too while I was capturing the picture of him.

Watching TV is not good for me. I’ve decided. At least in terms of productivity! But after watching baby all day, I needed a break.

Okay, so I finished the cover for The Witch and the Jaguar and finished proofing it. Hopefully, I’ll have it ready to publish today.

Hope you are having a wonderfully successful day!

Fun with Photos

At the Waco zoo, they had a really cool bird walk-through and the birds were just not afraid of us. The place was empty on Friday after Thanksgiving, so we had the place practically to ourselves for a few hours. Several of the birds were sitting on the fence keeping the wild animals (that’s us) out of their home, so they were right next to the walkway. (The bald eagle was in an enclosure of his own.)

Love the pelicans. They always remind me of a pterodactyl.

I’m up at 1, couldn’t sleep, so thought I’d get some things done, like unpacking my suitcase, blogging, and editing on Woodland Fae.

The temperature dropped thirty degrees from yesterday, so it went from 63 in the morning to 33. Too much of a drop!! But by Thursday it will be 76 again. Weird weather.

Have a great one!!

Birds Not of a Feather

All kinds of different birds, all beautiful in their own feathers.

I’m off to do all kinds of things early this morning and then have to pick up sick baby from daycare. Today was supposed to be my baby day off, but I know she sleeps better here, if she can sleep. It means no writing though. I did manage 2,000 words yesterday and finished a bear I need to ship this morning.

Have a lovely day!!! I’ve got to run!

Wildlife at Disney World

 

Ducks and a bunny, and turkey vultures!

Everywhere I looked, I saw wildlife. My camera was heavy and I left it back at the hotel sometimes, but then I always regretted it!

This great white heron was sitting on a post right by us, but I only had my phone. It would have been so much better if I had taken my camera.

The literacy signing was great and so was the Sourcebooks signing.

I’m off to work on Falcon Fae. It’s nearly done, but I’m having trouble getting into the Internet on Mac, so off to try again. 🙂

I think the fae are messing with me! Have a lovely day!

Inspiration? Or Just Wears You Out?

So I was at the Disney RWA Conference, book signings, networking, workshop hopping, editor meetings, firework watching, storm watching, rides, rides, rides, and rides. Walked between 9-11 miles a day! In the 98 degree heat and the 76+% humidity.

Rode monorails, ferries, and buses. Walked and walked and walked. And Walked. Got drenched.

When I go to a conference, I try not to just go to the conference. I want to see the area because….I paid a lot of money to get there. And….oh, wow, it’s just great for stories. And picture taking!!! And sharing.

This was the best birding place ever!!! Saw all kinds of different birds, and flowers, and the birds are so used to the millions of people, that they pose beautifully for pictures.

Even the squirrels and bunnies do!

Hope you had a great day!

The Ugly Duckling–What if the Tale was Reversed??? The Ugly Swan???

Everyone knows the tale of The Ugly Duckling, right? Poor Swan is big and gangly for his age as he swims among his brothers and sisters, cute little ducks. Give me a break. When is a swan not beautiful?

Oh, yeah, I know the whole not fitting in business, but look at your reflection in the pond, you big beautiful bird! I mean, really, the story should have been about the poor duck. What if a baby duckling thought he was a swan? Only he was always too small and couldn’t keep up with his beautiful brothers and sisters?

But when he looked in the water, he only saw he was a duck. And then when he found that he was just like other ducks, he’s like, but I hatched with the swans, why can’t I be like them?

The moral of the story is you’re stuck with what you are. So live with it. No sense in regretting what you don’t have. If you aren’t a swan, make the most of being a duck. And that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. 🙂 <3

Oh and before I have any duck lovers mad at me, I love all birds, no matter the size, shape, or form, and think they’re all equally beautiful. 🙂 <3 I have a ton of duck pictures too, just saying.

And I’ve got 10,000 words on Taming the Wild Cougar. 🙂 <3

Have a great day! Have to get back to writing about cougars and get my mind off birds…
