Female Cardinal in Bare Branches

female-cardinal-on-bare-branches-900

To attract more birds, it helps to have more vegetation around the feeders so they feel safe. But then it’s harder to take pictures of them, particularly when all the foliage  is out. My yard had only 3 pine trees, so I’m working at supplying the safe haven for the birds. 🙂

Plus, it improves the look of all the wood fencing. And makes it not so echoey when you talk outside. 🙂

I’m puppy sitting, and that means having a time getting anything done in a timely fashion. Need to get back to work on Night of the Wolf. I think I made 3,000 words on it yesterday. Over halfway done. Which meant I kept waking up last night and began thinking about where to go with it next. Do I kill a couple of bad guys? Let them live? Such is the dilemma I was facing at oh-dark-thirty. 🙂

Only 9,000 words left to go. Which is why with shorter writing, things happen so fast! 🙂 And they’re fun to write too.

Have a great one!

Making Progress on White Wolf Christmas!

First time I’ve seen a house finch feeding its baby! female cardinal1 020 (800x713)A female cardinal getting a snack. This has been emptying out really fast, and I wondered why. I caught a squirrel trying to get at it yesterday morning. But otherwise, house finches and cardinals were enjoying it.

So I’ve been working on White Wolf Christmas and actually reached 4600 words yesterday! 75400 to go! Yes, lots, but this is a really good start for a day.

I’ll be attending my first RWA chapter meeting this morning, and hope I find my way okay. Then it’s hamburgers and a movie with friends! So not sure how much I’m going to get written.

Sometimes it’s time to take a break and just have other kinds of fun!

Having pizza and seeing Star Trek with my daughter and SIL on Sunday. So more fun too!

Have a super great day!

Female Cardinal Watching Me

But I sat down yesterday while the puppies played in the yard, despite how hot it was, and had my camera with me, intending to get shots of them, when a female cardinal landed on the fence and modeled for me. 🙂

I have 50 pages to go on Between a Wolf and a Hard Place, then I can turn it in and back to SEAL Wolf Undercover edits. 🙂

Have a super wonderful, wacky Wednesday!!!

No comb. Big comb. Female cardinal without her mate. He came in and took off. She hung around for me to take pictures. 🙂

I’ve missed two days of blogs!!! But I’ve been really working hard at: Converting a book that had been with a publisher that is now back in my hot little hands. Deadly Liaisons. AND, I was tying it in with the other 3 vampire novels. They’re all about huntresses and romance, and taking down the bad vampires. I’m more than a quarter of the way done on the next one in the series, and actually have a 10,000-word start on another. But still working on Golden Fae.

And, I finished making changes to The Viking’s Highland Lass coming out on April 4th and am in the process of finalizing the print book. I need to work on Deadly Liaisons print book also.

So I took a break last night to clip puppy hair back from their eyes. Well, I sort of overdid it on Max, but I love seeing their eyes. 🙂

The cardinal didn’t plan for a blackbird dinner companion.

Okay, The Viking’s Highland Lass’s print book is ready for proofing, so off to read through it again.

Happy, happy TGIF!!!!!

Bears and Birds and Yes, Books!

Purple Sweater Bear 001 (640x549)

Okay, another bear order, and two more for clan bears. I’ve run out of made up bears and have to start from scratch again!

But I was excited to see the female cardinal finally was eating at one of the feeders. I’m sure that she wouldn’t have liked it if she had known I took a picture of her with her mouth, well, technically beak, full.  cardinal eating on feeder

I’m off to now work on books! 🙂  But the bears are ready to ship to Australia and Kansas!

Have a super great Thursday!
