Birds on the Brain

Okay, first, I want to assure you that I did get word count, and made up for a 1,000 for another day. I moved furniture in the morning, unpacked 4 boxes, and even walked around the block to get my mail. I answered numerous spam calls, and really, I have been working. But….then the BIRDS came.

And that meant hurrying to open the blinds and hope not to scare them away, grab my camera and take some shots.

Golden Finches?

Now this little dude was dancing around and wouldn't sit still for a picture. Purple finch? House finch?

He really, really wanted to go down to the feeder below.

Two sparrows and a cardinal that I missed, swooped in to see the seed, but no takers. A sparrow was eyeing it from the fence, but he wouldn’t buy it. I have seen a bunch of these birds land on my grass and peck around the day before. Maybe they’ll get braver.

Okay, so remember about the work I have to do on the manuscript? I need to write 6,000 words to catch up. I had 7,000 yesterday, so whittling away at it. 65,000 to go!

Have a great Saturday!!! I know what I’m going to be doing. Do you?

Edana Chattan senses concerns where people she knows could be in danger. When her brothers warn her they’re in trouble, she can’t convince her father to listen to her, so with an escort, she tries to locate them. Separated from her escort during a storm, she is discovered by Angus MacNeill, who is tasked to return her home.

Only Edana has other notions–and convinces him and his companions to allow her to use her abilities to locate her brothers who are manacled in a dungeon somewhere. That leads to a faux marriage and more dungeons and more trouble than Angus had ever thought possible. So why is the bewitching, fiery-haired lass making him think of marrying her for real?

I don’t normally post twice in a day, but this was so important, I had to post about it because it’s the only day it will EVER be the BOOK OF THE DAY. 🙂 So here it is. One last day at 99 cents and it will be forever and ever gone. Probably. 🙂

My computer is broken. 🙁

I got a finch feeder and finch food, but no one’s come to eat. Did I do it wrong???

I’m off to eat lunch, but had to share….
