Grandma Needs Baby to Nap

Redheaded Woodpecker what do you see?

It was a napless day, which meant Grandma had to play all day with little one. She finally, finally, finally fell asleep 5 minutes before her momma arrived. We had walked around the neighborhood, played in the water, played chase around the house, run errands, played in her tent, read stories, watched pre-school shows, eaten, and she was getting so tired, and upset, but fighting sleep. We finally went outside to look at flowers while I carried her around and she was getting sleepier and sleepier. Then I walked inside, sat down, and she fell asleep in my arms, right before her momma knocked on the door.

Sooooo, Wednesday, we have to get a nap. Please. I get so much done while she sleeps! lol But even so, I managed to get 1,300 words written on the novella. I’ve given up on the novel, for the moment. Too difficult to do both at the same time. I’m over halfway done on the novella, a quarter of the way done on the novel.

I’m off to write!!! Have a wonderful day!!!

Annuals that are Perennials

These sunny little flowers are marigolds and they’re popping up all over the place from planting them last year. I love annuals that will reseed themselves and I can enjoy them again and again, without having to plant again!

Baby is here. I spent a lot of time Easter egg hunting Friday and Sunday, well, not really, I got to take pictures of my granddaughter, uhm, hunting for eggs one day, but on Sunday, she was much more interested in stopping the whirligigs that were twirling in the wind. While other kids filled their baskets to the brim, she totally ignored the eggs. lol

Okay, I’m off to play with her and hopefully get a little writing done. Have a beautiful day!!!

Creating a Story from a Photo

I took this photo of a trio of birdhouses last year, and then with the Adobe Watercolor action, played around and created a watercolor.

I’m off to photograph my granddaughter’s Easter egg hunt and have a barbecue, so will have to get caught up on writing later today!

Have a lovely day!!!

Creating a Watercolor from a Photo–Easy

https://create.adobe.com/2019/3/20/transform_photos_int.html

This was a blue jay without the peanut in the photo for the watercolor, but essentially the same setting, easy with Photoshop and free for now.

Okay, I’m really in my bear cave to write! Have a beautiful day!

White Winged Dove

I moved the feeder so that when I took pictures, it would have a better background instead of just the fence. So here you can see the roses surrounding the feeders.

Well, we’re supposed to get rain today and I’ve got my granddaughter for a lot longer today, so I need to get out and walk with her early. It’s too dark yet. Maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll get some writing in! I did manage to get 2,000 on the novella yesterday, making 6,000. I need 19,000 to finish it. But of course, I’m getting more behind on my other book. *sigh* And we’re doing the Easter egg hunt for my granddaughter early on Friday and then a barbecue, so that wasn’t something I planned, but we’ll have a lot of fun.

I’m off to cuddle with my granddaughter and try to get something done! Have a lovely day!!!

Sometimes a Peanut Hits the Spot

Blue jay with a peanut. Red bellied woodpecker with a peanut.

It’s a writing day today. I have to get more done! I tried to yesterday, turned in the 2nd blog, and still had to write the last one. But my granddaughter was a handful until she fell asleep on my lap, yay! And I finally began writing on White Wolf to the Rescue. I had planned to take her for a long walk, but she was so tired, I wanted to wait until she had a nap. Didn’t work because she slept for over 3 hours, nearly until her momma picked her up.

So I’m off to write! Have a fun day!!!

Monarch Caterpillar Cocoons

I kept trying to capture the stages of the monarch caterpillar getting ready to transform to the butterfly stage. So this one was looking for a home, first on the chives in the planter, then finding a spot to attach himself to on the side of the planter. Next time I looked, he was already in his cocoon.

The same with this one. He was just on the other side of the pillar and he was getting ready to do the same thing at the same time. It’s amazing how big they are and they can fit into such a tiny cocoon.

Okay, I’m off to write! I wrote 2,000 words on Billionaire so am 3,000 words behind now, so chiseling away at it, but also wrote two promotional blogs, need one more, and 1,000 on the novella. Baby is here, so trying to type up the other promotional blog and turn it in, and hope to get some word count later.

Have a great one!!!

Gerbera Daisies Are Like Colorful Smiley Faces in the Garden

Gerbera Daisies

I love the Gerbera daisies. The flowers are so large and showy and they’re perennial so they come back every year. My neighbor across the street had them and I fell in love with them. In fact, this is the first I’ve had where I’ve had so much fun trying a variety of flowers and finding the ones that do stupendously, and the ones that fail miserably.

I pulled up my Legend of the White Wolf to try and come up with a novella idea, still thinking. And I managed my word count yesterday, but that was all. I went shopping for clothes and food and of course I couldn’t resist picking up some more flowers. Of course. Now I need to plant them!

My granddaughter is coming over tonight so Momma and Daddy can do an 80’s Banquet at her school district, and that means? I’ve got to get my writing done early. I’m still 4,000 behind and need to start writing the promo blogs.

Our 100% change of rain has dropped to 90%. It’s warm out, though it says it’s supposed to be 49. Don’t know when to believe the weatherman.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to plant, and then do my walk and then WRITE.

They’re Everywhere! They’re Everywhere!

And that’s a good thing! Monarch caterpillars are everywhere. Unfortunately, some eggs were laid on milkweed that didn’t have many leaves, so they devoured them quickly. I have transported a couple of them to the other side of the backyard where there’s plenty to eat. Who would have ever thought I’d want a bug to eat my plants? But the butterflies are beautiful and they’re losing their habit. So I’ve planted a butterfly haven. Zinnia should be coming up soon and the butterflies love them too. The seeds are sprouting, and I just planted pentas and hummingbirds and butterflies love them.

Okay, I’m 4,000 words behind, so still catching up. But I think I might need to switch stories and start writing on the novella that’s due sooner. *sigh*

And I have babysitting duty on Saturday evening, so must get my word count in early.

I’m off to write!!! And ship some books. Have a great Friday!!!
