We had a lovely Easter yesterday. My granddaughter wanted to hug on me for the longest time–we hadn’t seen each other in forever. I have been taking care of her since she was a day old and once she was 3 months old, began taking care of her 2 days a week for 3 years. So it was hard to be separated from her for so long.
Her parents are eager for me to take care of her again. lol They’re both working from home. I told them give me a week and then we can try it. I am stuck on my book, so I want to get a little further on it before I have to cut out 2 days from my writing schedule a week again. And with them going to the grocery store again, I’m concerned about them picking up the virus and sharing it with me.
Hope you all are having a good weekend. We’re supposed to have thunderstorms starting at around 7 am and they’ll end around noon. So today is a writing day for me. Have a good one!
We’re celebrating Easter this afternoon because of storms coming in tonight and tomorrow. This is the first time I’ve been able to see my granddaughter in a month. My daughter came over yesterday and brought over some plastic Easter eggs. I filled them with rubber duckies a friend had given me whose daughter no longer wanted them. My granddaughter loves rubber duckies.
I also got her the game Candy Land and a couple of stuffed Snoopys, Easter style.
Anyway, that means I need to run, wash the dogs, vacuum and set out Easter eggs–my daughter told hers that the Easter bunny was going to Grandma’s house, so it wouldn’t do having her see Grandma putting them out.
And I need to cook lunch.
I thought I was going to have this all broken up over two days. lol
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern offered reassurances to the children of New Zealand, announcing that the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy had been designated essential workers. She cautioned that, because of distancing rules, “the Easter bunny might not make it everywhere this year.”~~New York Times
When my son was in kindergarten, I was on-call for helping out with any activities the kids were involved in. So I got a call to help hide Easter eggs at the elementary school. Some of his classmates saw me and said, “Your mom’s here hiding Easter eggs!”
There was Blaine with most of the class watching at the window, their noses and hands pressed against the glass as I “hid” the eggs. Which meant just scattering them all over the freshly mowed grass. When I picked him up from school that afternoon, he was so excited. I had helped the iguanas hide the Easter eggs.
“Yes, they were in charge of laying the eggs.”
“No, iguanas, Mommy. They lay eggs.”
So that year I helped the iguanas put out the Easter eggs. They might not be essential workers this year. Then again, there isn’t any school.
I did my walk today, more people out than usual. I went to the grocery store on Sunday, so I’m home for two weeks, just in case I picked up anything while out. Three weeks if I can hold out that long.
Hope you all are doing well. Breathe in, breathe out (in isolation), stay safe.
With it’s volatile weather. One minute its 78 degrees and the next, 33. It’s at the low end today. I want to garden. Well, when I’m 100% well. But I need to concentrate on writing. I only have 13K words to write to get minimum word count. Yay!
I have only 3,000 words to write to catch up, still need my 2,000 words today though too. But that’s down from 11K so doing good!
I wanted to feel like spring, so created the picture above, but now it’s back to the Highlands!
Annetta Sweetko Reviewed for Fresh Fiction! Love your review, Annetta! YOU HAD ME AT WOLF is the first book in Terry Spear’s “Wolff Brothers” series set in her wolf shifter-run Silver Town. For me, YOU HAD ME AT WOLF is evocative of some of my favorite books, films, and TV shows of the 1950s and 1960s like Agatha Christies book THE PALE HORSE, the film CAST A DARK SHADOW, and the classic British spy series The Avengers. With private investigator and wolf shifter Nicole Grayson, Terry Spear has created a heroine like The Avengers’ Emma Peel who is cool, competent, and kickass.
YOU HAD ME AT WOLF is a winter wonderland of adventure and plenty of wolf-on-wolf wooing. I loved the supporting characters in YOU HAD ME AT WOLF and I’m eager to read more about them in future books especially Nate and Kayla. I look forward to Terry Spear’s next paranormal romance.
Have a beautiful day!! If I get my word count in and another 1,000 or 2, it will make my day!
I’ve seen at least two bunnies, one that hopped off, and the other that remained under the blooming photinia and the red cedar tree. With the snakes in my house, it was easy to see a pattern and realize the two snakes were not the same. But with bunnies, don’t they all look the same to you? How could you tell them apart?
Mysteries abound at my house–and so I had something that dug into the grass next to my cement drive. There’s a lot of cement underneath the grass there because the brick wall is perpendicular to the driveway. And there are no shrubs there so the rabbits aren’t out there. Plus with the cars driving by on the road, it would make them skittish.
It actually dug through the roots of a crepe myrtle that is growing on the other side of the brick wall.
I thought it might be a neighbor’s big dog, but I’ve never seen one around here. We do have skunks, but I’ve never seen them dig a hole in the yard. At my other house, I did find the skeleton of a wild boar in the creek down the road, but I doubt anything like that would come here. Some suggested an armadillo. I’ve never seen one here, did run into one in Oklahoma when I lived there. Scared me because he came straight at me, which made me think he was rabid. They do carry leprosy, so not interested in having them around.
So what do YOU think? Can you tell if the bunnies are all the same one or different? Can you figure out what was digging in my yard? It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but it was deep.
Back to writing! 30,000 to go! Piece of cake! If I don’t get stuck! 🙂
