Hairy Bears and Hairy Woodpeckers

 

Finished an order of a teddy bear for a newborn, and caught a much better shot of the hairy woodpecker this time. He’s getting used to me.

Still plugging away at the story. 35K done, 45K to go.

Computer and internet giving me fits, so finishing this while I can!

Have a lovely rest of the weekend! 🙂

A Study in Woodpeckers

Redheaded woodpecker, Red-bellied woodpecker, Downy, and Hairy

When I first moved here, I saw the redheaded woodpecker, but I think there are too many birds and the dogs, and me to make it worth his while to visit the yard. I saw a downy in my tree out front when I went to walk to the mailbox around the block, but no camera. He just stayed there too, so he would have made for the perfect shot. He was low in the tree. Most of the time, I’m really far away, and the light in the sky makes it hard to focus on the bird.

I caught this downy in a forest in Minnesota. The hairy woodpeckers were doing a mating dance in the tree behind my property. And I caught the red-bellied woodpecker in flight. He’s the only type that eats at my feeders, unafraid, for the most part, of me taking pictures out of my window in full view of him.

The hairy is still working on the dead branch of the pine tree out front, so I caught him yesterday working on it. I used to be able to stand there and take pictures, but this one was skittish.

If you hear that rat-a-tat-tat in in the woods some day, it just might be a woodpecker. Yes, they’re destructive, and can cause damage to homes. I still love seeing them. I heard an owl in that same tree the other night, but I wouldn’t have been able to capture a picture of him. It was tempting to look for him though. I was curious what kind it is.

Back to the book. 27,000 done, 53K to go!

Have a super day!!!

Okay, I’m back to typing up notes and will try to post tomorrow again. Meant to yesterday, but just didn’t have time. We had a lovely signing. One of my fans actually called the store from NY and ordered 6 of the books, so I autographed them for her and they’re shipping them out.

And only in two days–A Highland Wolf Christmas releases!!!

Highland Wolf Christmas-300

A Highland Wolf Christmas (Book 15)

(OCT 7, 2014)

It’s going to take a lot of mistletoe…
Guthrie MacNeill, financial advisor for his clan and werewolf pack, is at his wit’s end when the pack leader’s mate hires a gorgeous party planner to bring holiday cheer to the castle. Guthrie’s wildly attracted to Calla, except he can’t reconcile the fact that his job is to save the clan’s money, and hers seems to be to spend it.

To warm this Highlander’s heart
Calla Stewart has never had a more difficult client. The laird and lady of the castle are delightful, but the handsome Highlander holding the purse strings is quite impossible. Since she specializes in holiday magic, Calla hopes she can make the scrooge-like wolf lighten up. Then Guthrie takes on the role of Highland warrior to protect her from an unexpected threat, and the holidays take a turn for the passionate.

Praise for A Highland Werewolf Wedding:
“Sultry, sexy and satisfying.” –Long and Short Reviews
“Will leave readers longing for a Highlander of their own.” –Romance Junkies

Off to a boat ride on the St Croix today and more wolves tomorrow!
