Scrap Art Picture + Water Lily

I created this with Lynne Azeltic’s designs from Oscraps. They’re fun to use if I want to just create a scene and not take a ton of time to do it. I still created shadows under the ducks, and had to mask off some of the turtle to make him look like he’s partly under the water, and added the reflections of the geese in the water but they’re really easy to do. Still I really want to create my own.

Also, I have a waterlily photo I took in San Diego and used Topaz Labs to create an oil painting look.


Yesterday was a great day. We had fun and my daughter gave me books on composting, since we both have composters but I don’t use mine enough, and how to gather seeds to plant, and that’s something I’ve been doing since last year, so that will give me some new cool ideas. The stuff in my composter is already composted, but I need to add more to keep it going! I thought you couldn’t put weeds in the composter, but actually you can as long as they don’t have seeds on them. So that was one thing I learned already.

It’s cool this morning, yay! So I was out pulling weeds and grass. We didn’t get the rain yesterday after all. And it looks like we won’t get any rain until maybe Tuesday. So we’ll dry out a bit.

I had my ice cream sundae, expecting to gain, but you have a birthday once a year, so I figured that would be my extra 28 points and hopefully it would cover it. I lost 0.2 lbs. Watching what I was eating the rest of the day really worked, to my surprise! Of course I couldn’t eat a sundae daily, but I figure if I can watch what I eat and then have a treat every once in a while, I’m good.

I didn’t get much written, but reread the last two chapters I had been working on and revised them. I hope to really write today and tomorrow before I’m back to having little one here and picking her up at daycare every afternoon. I spent a lot of yesterday working on the Memorial Day pictures I took of the family. I need to get back into the writing saddle and start getting word count again! I’ve already got a 1,000 words on You Had Me at Cougar this morning, so up to 37K!

Hope everyone is having a great day! I’ve fed the dogs and I’m ready to write.

I’m off and running this morning. I wrote another 3,000 words yesterday, did all kinds of switching scenes around which changes things a lot. What? They were going to bed but now it’s daytime? Lunch is breakfast? This isn’t relevant. Oh, no, need more setup here now. Anyway, somehow with all the moving around of stuff, I still managed to write more. I’m at 95,000.

Off to do my thing.

Have a super lovely day!

Iris open

The English Iris, isn’t it lovely? Love purple flowers!

Okay, still haven’t started on the edits, not procrastinating, but still trying to get my word count on SEAL for the week. Well, procrastinating a little.

But I also got some more reviews in that I wasn’t expecting:

Paranormal Romance

COUGAR’S MATE is Book 1 in Terry Spear’s Heart of the Cougar series. As a longtime fan of Terry Spear, I was very excited to hear about this new series about cougar shifters. Happily for me, I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot of action in COUGAR’S MATE, but it doesn’t obscure the romance.

At the beginning of the story, Shannon Rafferty is a woman in crisis.Chase Buchanan is the sexy, incredibly sweet lawman she runs into. Chase is a dream.

Chase’s buddies — Hal, Dan, and Stryker — are all great guys and I look forward to reading stories about them in future books. They are all tough, former military types, but they all have a wonderful caring side. I love the way the entire town took Shannon in and supported her like one of their own. The town and the feeling of community and family it provides Shannon are almost equally as seductive as Chase’s charms. COUGAR’S MATE is an exciting paranormal romance with a strong heroine and a sweet, sexy hero!

RATING: 4.5 Stars

There is absolutely nothing I didn’t love about Cougar’s Mate by Terry Spear. This is one of those books that grabs you right from the first page and doesn’t let go until the last.

“She’d never felt she was cursed, but what if she was? With three dead boyfriends to her name?”

“Hell, he loved her for all her vulnerability, her sassiness, her caring, everything that made her the she-cat that she was. Somehow, he would save her.”

This book has humor and romance and lots of heart pounding action. I loved every page of it. If you enjoy shifter books, then you will love this book. This was my first book by Terry Spear and most definitely will not be my last.

Instinct told her to run…

 

Cougar’s Mate pulled me into the story from page one and kept me reading until the last word.

What’s especially enjoyable is Ms. Spears’, slow build up to the physical relationship between Shannon and Chase. It’s not rushed which makes it feel natural. Just when you think things are going Shannon and Chase’s way, trouble rear its head.

During the last part of the story I didn’t want to put the book down so I could continuing reading and see what happened to this pair.

Cougar’s Mate is the first of a new series by Ms. Spears and I can’t wait for book two.

 

Woohoo!!! Okay, enough dancing around the room, or skipping outside to take pictures. Time to ship books and then get back to the business of writing.

Any plans for the weekend???
