Ugh, Picture Time Again

“Okay, which is my best look, side view, or head-on?”

“Tanner, don’t encourage her. Maybe she’ll go off and take pictures of flowers or something.”

“I like getting my picture taken, Max. I’m very photogenic.”
That’s my silly dogs for you. I keep telling myself I need to take treats out to capture their excited looks and not their bored looks. But I forgot. It was really windy, and their hair kept flying in front of their faces. Part of Tanner’s ear flew over his eyes when I took the one shot. I should have just taken a picture of all the hair in their eyes–sometimes the shots that are the most fun are the ones that show the real story.

The good news is that I think I came up with a story idea for the novella. I think. I just have to figure out how to write it. And I managed getting 500 words on my Wolff story, so I had word count, since I was 1500 ahead. And I finished proofing SEAL Wolf Surrender! Yay!

I’m off to keep after it. I’m not out of the woods yet. And I just got word I have some other books coming out on sale so I need to make up some graphics for that. Have a great day!!!

Trying to Write My Blog

Be right back. Baby is here.

Yesterday for 365 days of photos, it was hat day. Tanner tells Max to not look so glum because his hat looks much better than Tanner’s. And today was hot drink, so I made a cup of lemon lavender tea in my favorite Scottish cup. You can see the roses are still blooming.

Today we’ve tried having breakfast, coloring, toddler wearing grandma’s big fluffy socks, cleaning windows. And dusting. It’s only 8:48 am. What now?

So yesterday I did my annual physical. You answer a million questions on a notepad. Do you sleep? Do you eat? Are you anxious? (Uhm, when deadlines are hanging over my head and I’m still not there, a little) Do you doze off during work, lunch hour, movie time, stopping at traffic lights? Do you forget where things are? (Come on, like that doesn’t happen to all of us!) Do you forget names and faces? (Does it count when I’ve always been that way??? Or when I spell my characters’ names a myriad of different ways?)

Is it the writer in me that wants to answer these with qualifications?

Okay, back to working with baby. Have a terrific day!!!

Max and the Squirrel

Could be a book title, don’t you think? lol

Anyway, Max is in hunting mode. The squirrel is in taunting mode. Of my two havanese, Max is the real hunter. Tanner will give chase, but he is easily bored. Max–he’ll wait, and wait, and wait. As you can see he went from jumping mode to sitting, but all his concentration is on the squirrel no matter what his posture. He finally jumped at the tree to make the squirrel run back up it and then turned to me and joined me as if to say he showed the squirrel and he’s done with the game.

Life is a story.

I finished another panda bear! Need to take a picture of it and ship it off this morning. Picked up an order for a Munro Clan Bear. Still trying to figure out how to start Silver Town Wolf Christmas….what the issues are, etc!

Still fighting this awful cold too…. Yesterday, I felt so miserable, I just couldn’t get into anything. Then finally I was feeling a little better and was able to finish the one panda, work on the other, but still have a ways to go on it.

Have a great day!!!

Billionaire Proofing is Done!

Dragonfly watching the fairy in the cowboy boot, Tanner wanting to get into baby’s wading pool when she was gone, a tangerine zinnia, and a beautiful, magical sunrise.

A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas final proofing is done! I’m turning it in momentarily so I can get back to work on finishing SEAL. Nearly there. Jaguar edits will be coming any day.

Off to work!!! Have a magical day!

Another Fun Review!!!

“Sometimes identity theft can bring you the love of your life”

Fresh Fiction Review

All’s Fair in Love and Wolf
Terry Spear

Reviewed by Kim Roller
Posted May 11, 2018

Romance Paranormal

ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND WOLF takes you back to Terry Spear’s the Silver Town Wolves series for another look at life as a shifter in a close knit pack. This book centers on how a case of identity theft can bring you the love of your life. Even though this was the first time that I’ve read this particular part of the series, I had no trouble following the lives of the Silver boys and their family and friends in Silver Town. Silver Town is a unique town in Colorado that is completely wolf run and owned. This book is the story of Jenna and Sarandon who weren’t looking for true love, but they find it in the most unusual way.

I always look forward to reading Terry Spear’s books. They are entertaining, funny, and show what true love can be like and how you just know when you’ve found the right person and wolf for you. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Silver Town Wolves series and any other shifter books her imagination can come up with. I’m just sorry I got such a late start in reading her books.

Learn more about All’s Fair in Love and Wolf

SUMMARY

The Silver Town wolf pack has your back

Wolf shifter Sarandon Silver’s in trouble with the law, and bounty hunter she-wolf Jenna St. James is determined to bring him in for trial.

Lucky for Sarandon, the entire Silver Town pack is ready to fight for his innocence. But until the case is solved, Jenna’s sticking to Sarandon like glue…

Still working on settings to make sure the fast moving baby isn’t a blur. She was hilarious yesterday. For the first time ever, she smiled when she realized I was setting up to take her photos, ie, bringing in the soft box into the kitchen to try and have better lighting for the first time. But what was so funny was she came over while I was crouching down to look at the pictures on the camera! She’s going to be like Tanner, the black havanese, and a photo hound. lol

Anyway, she was pointing at herself on the camera viewer. So then I was sitting on the floor to get shots of her at more her level, but she kept crawling toward me fast and climbed into my lap for hugs. lol I needed the settings on hummingbird speed. So those were a blur. I still need to get better about getting the right settings as her hand is slightly blurred in the picture with Tanner.

So today, we’re walking a mile and a half for the Spring Independent School District student scholarship fundraiser and health awareness. It’s early, good thing, because it’s going to be hot. And then I’m fixing lunch for us. I started re-reading Her Jaguar Protector last night so I can turn this in on Monday. I’ll finish that today. Going to try to read one more chapter before I leave.

And tomorrow is a wild and crazy day for Mother’s Day. Baby baptism, so I will be taking lots of pictures. And Mother’s Day, and then I can relax, right?

Have a lovely day! I’m starting mine out right with a nice little walk!

The Squirrel Hunt is on…Or the Squirrel Game is on…

Max is my hunter. Both havanese are, but he’s the fastest and he caught the rat that meant no more rats on my feeders. None. Any. More. The rats live in packs like wolf packs and so once one of their own was killed in front of another, that was too afraid to leave the feeder, no more rats.

Max also is persistent. Tanner wanders off and does his own thing. But if Max is chasing the squirrels, he’ll join him.

So the squirrel chase is on. They run so much slower than the havanese, but they tend to do tactical maneuvers much faster. They turn and twist and the dogs can’t turn that fast. The squirrels are a real nuisance with the feeders, dumping the feed on the ground. Some birds eat it, but often it just rots. I use the tray for the bigger birds. And yes, I’ve tried squirrel-proof feeders and they are impossible to clean.

Max usually sits at the base of the pine tree where the squirrel has scrambled. Max can jump really high, but the squirrel will stay just out of his reach. It’s a game to the squirrel. He’s wagging his tail at him. Taunting me while standing up next to the shrubs, makes for great pictures. I always try to look at the bright side of things! But here, Max was hiding behind a shrub, lol, waiting for the squirrel to leave the tree. He is becoming a tactician.

We have tons of squirrels, so it’s not just one. And I doubt if the dogs managed to catch one, that would deter others. I don’t really want them to kill them either.

I just switched to seeds only variety of birdseed, so hope that helps lessen the mess. And I bought a composter for the garden. More about that later.

Managed to get 2,000 words on my off day (baby was here), so up to 54,000! Twenty-six to go. Now, that wasn’t hard, was it? Goals, goals, goals, and working toward them, even if I don’t feel like it. Still nauseous and can’t seem to kick this bug, but I’m writing anyway. It’s easy to make excuses, so I try not to!

Have a super day!!!

The Eyes Have It…

If you can focus on anything–aim for the eyes. 🙂 <3

It’s like windows to the soul.

Off to write!!! Have a super great day!

Upside Down Morning

Good morning, everyone! Are you awake? Apparently, I’m not. I put my watch on upside down, threw my recyclables in the wrong garbage bin, which meant fishing them out and putting them in the correct one, and….hopefully there won’t be a third dumb thing I do today. 🙂 <3

Baby is on her way over, hope she’s getting over the flu and doesn’t give it to me!!! My daughter informed me that the baby is having diaper blowouts from the antibiotics she’s on.

Ugh, and I don’t have a change of clothes for her. So wrapping her in towels for her first nap. lol See how my day is going?

Here is the anatomy of a story. Max, the white havanese, is pretending to ignore Tanner. Tanner’s bowing in a taunt to say: Play with me. This is the inciting incident.

Does Max continue to ignore him, or go in for the play fight?

Next, Max continues to pretend to ignore Tanner. Tanner lays down, pretending he’s not ready to play.

Then Max rushes in to attack.

Tanner rushes back and Max turns to start the chase. 🙂

The end.

Off to bounce baby to sleep, hopefully. 🙂 <3

Sleepy Puppies

Until they see the cat.

A story can be that way, just sleepy, until something draws everyone together for a common goal. Prey.

Oh, and Tanner is always up for a mug shot. He needs a face trim, but he doesn’t care. If I’m trying to take a picture of the other dogs, he wants in on the action. To my surprise, so did Max. He usually doesn’t like having his picture taken. It’s just something he has to put up with. But if I’m taking pictures of his cousins? He wants to be included.

As you can see, I was really writing. Really.

Off to get started on it…well, after everyone has another potty break. I love taking pictures of the cat, but I’m hoping he doesn’t come around because of the dogs. My earlier dogs were raised with cats, so no problem. But these haven’t been.

Have a wonderfully, exciting day! 🙂 I made it to 50K! Woohoo! 30K to go.
