Great White Heron

Great White Heron standing by the fountain at the Houston Zoo.

My son-in-law told me when I began taking pictures of the great white heron that he wasn’t part of the zoo. lol But he was by the fountain and it was a fun shot.

My daughter told me that I was supposed to take pictures of my granddaughter at the zoo. What??? And not the animals? I did take pictures of her, but I have to admit I was having lots of fun shooting the animals.

And some of them even turned out great!

Well, yesterday, I wrote another 3,000 words on the story. I’m having trouble with conflict in the story. That means I’m having my own internal conflict. It happens often. So whenever that happens, I pull up all the resources on conflict to try and center myself on the idea.

I love it when it comes to me, when I can come up with a plot and motivation and conflict and fly right through it. When I get back to writing on the Christmas wolf anthology story, I have it! But I want to get more of this book finished first. I’m at 30,000 words and have 50K left to reach minimum word count.

I managed to plant two of the ligustrum yesterday. I’ve been cutting back the milkweed, pulling weeds. The milkweed had been leafing out and died back with the ice age, so they’re coming back at the roots now. Seven more plants to plant. I hope to get some done today, and the rest done tomorrow.

It’s chilly this morning again. I should appreciate it since when it warms up in a few weeks it will stay hot forever, and then I’ll be wishing it was cooler. But it’s too cold for me right now. lol


Have a great day! Need to get mine started!

Blue Gray Heron

So this morning little one was dropped off an hour early and Grandma was just getting up, which isn’t like me at all! Usually I would have been up for a couple of hours. *sigh*

I’ve been scrambling to get her fed, the dogs fed, the birds fed, and all.

We did some sight words and now off to do a puzzle.

Have a great day! Mine had a big jumpstart. lol

Late…Late…Late

I received an email from the journalist who is writing the story on me for the university that I received my graduate degree from and so I was in the middle of responding to her when someone knocks on the door.

I figure it’s my battery operated radio I ordered for the storm, that still hasn’t arrived. That’s okay. I’ll be all set when we have another. Though hopefully we won’t have anything this bad again. I keep saying this because the flooding last year wasn’t supposed to have happened either.

It wasn’t the delivery man! My daughter showed up with baby and wanted to take a walk as she’s going stir crazy. Man, was it hot out. And muggy. And hot. We walked nearly 4 miles.

On the walk, we saw a great white heron, an impassable walkway for the baby in her buggy, toadstools, and a maintenance guy was going around to all the trash receptacles and letting out all the water in them.

Then we went to a restaurant that was open, just to get out. She’s going back to work early to deal with deliveries of food to her school district, but the kids and rest of the staff won’t be starting back until the 11th.  Too many staff members were affected by the flooding.

We donated to an animal shelter last night, and I just learned one of our local authors lost everything in the flood, so off to donate for her.

Hope your day is great!

Inspiration? Or Just Wears You Out?

So I was at the Disney RWA Conference, book signings, networking, workshop hopping, editor meetings, firework watching, storm watching, rides, rides, rides, and rides. Walked between 9-11 miles a day! In the 98 degree heat and the 76+% humidity.

Rode monorails, ferries, and buses. Walked and walked and walked. And Walked. Got drenched.

When I go to a conference, I try not to just go to the conference. I want to see the area because….I paid a lot of money to get there. And….oh, wow, it’s just great for stories. And picture taking!!! And sharing.

This was the best birding place ever!!! Saw all kinds of different birds, and flowers, and the birds are so used to the millions of people, that they pose beautifully for pictures.

Even the squirrels and bunnies do!

Hope you had a great day!

Blue Water, White Heron

White heron in the surf, beach rentals, need a chaise lounge and an umbrella? Wake boarder paddling away, hotels along the white sand beach, aqua waters, birds of paradise.

And books signed at Books-a-Million and Barnes and Noble in Daytona Beach, Florida.

It was fun while it lasted! We had the most beautiful days until our last day, and then it turned colder and rainy. But we still walked down the beach and enjoyed our stay until the end!

We had a blast, and now it’s time to return home and get back to writing.

Have a sunshiny day even if it’s overcast and rainy!
