Big Cats, Little Cats

2 cougars, 2 jaguars, 3 ocelots

Love the big cats and little cats. Two cougars were pacing here. The jaguar was growling here, wanting to mate and did. Hey, zoos are supposed to be for education. What can I say? And I was only able to catch a couple of good shots of one of the three ocelots. Everything else was smeared windows or too much fence.

More cats coming up. I was working on Christmas decorations and Woodland Fae and The Witch and the Jaguar! I’ll be finalizing the cover for The Witch and the Jaguar and begin final proofing.

Off to work! Have a super special day!

The Witch and the Jaguar

I’m still working on Woodland Fae, getting closer to word count and I was messing around with a witch’s picture for Halloween, but then I fell in love with it and thought, what if I made a short story to go with it? How about a novella? So what does a jaguar shifter do when she wants to go to a Halloween party without her over-protective brother? She turns him into her familiar when he arrives home unexpectedly. Of course, we normally think of something like a little black cat. Not in the world of jaguars. See how stories get started?

Anyway, I won’t have it finished in time for Halloween, but from what my fans say, any time of year is good for any kind of seasonal story. And that works for me.

The problem is in the middle of the night, I was seeing both the fae’s story continuing to develop in my mind, and the jaguar one. I was too tired to write them down, but I’m going to try and remember what it was I “saw” before it’s too late.

It’s cold this morning and I finished a bear order and wrote 3,000 words yesterday, see if I can do as much today! So I need to ship the bear to Australia, and get some groceries and then it’s back to WRITING.

Have a wonderfully productive and fun day!

Jaguar–Before/After

Setting the jaguar free… I took the picture of the jaguar half-asleep, dreaming of a waterfall in a jungle. He was safe in the Omaha zoo.

Baby time! Hope to run some errands, but we’re supposed to have thunderstorms, so playing it by ear. I can’t imagine running baby in and out of the pouring rain…

Reached 35,000 yesterday, 45,000 to go. That’s just to reach the minimum word count. They’re always longer, but it’s the goal I aim for. Just a few more days and I’ll be at the halfway point! A miracle!

Have a super day!!!

Jaguars Thinking of Each Other

I have to get into the mindset for my writing and sometimes playing with photos that help me to capture the feeling help. The first one is a combination of renderosity black jaguar and a fantasy background, and butterfly overlays from etsy. The second is a jaguar photo I took at the Omaha zoo and the background is from renderosity also.

11,000 done, 69K to go!

Okay, baby should be here any minute. Tanner’s driving me nuts in anticipation of her arrival. I hope to walk her to the park today, if she’s not fussing like when I took her for a walk on Tuesday. It’s supposed to be a high of 70 today, high of 49 on Sunday–see why everyone is getting sick? No time to adjust to the constant swings in weather.

Have a super great big cat day!!!

Big Cats are Beautiful

Cougar, lioness, tiger, white tiger, cheetah,  jaguar, and snow leopard!

I always have to see the big cats when I visit a zoo. They ‘re beautiful. 🙂

Have a super great day!!

The Magic of Being a Child

magical-1090663

Corey wondered if Santa was an Arctic wolf after all. He’d wondered ever since a fake jaguar Santa had come to visit the kids at the jaguar shifter daycare and asked what they wanted for Christmas. He knew that Santa couldn’t have been real because Santa was from the North Pole and weren’t the Arctic wolves from there too? The jaguars he had met had never been in the snow, so it made sense.

And yet here it was Christmas Eve, snowing in Minnesota, and he was home with his family–his mother and father, his brother and sister, and his uncles. He’d asked Santa for one thing for Christmas–to be home with his family. And now he was.

So maybe the Santa in the sleigh flying across the sky, highlighted by the full moon, was truly the jaguar Santa that had asked him just what he had wanted for Christmas.

Maybe there were two of them. A jaguar shifter and a wolf shifter who brought gifts to all the girls and boys, depending on if they were a wolf or a jaguar. But he’d had the most special gift of all.  And this time it was from a jolly old jaguar Santa, who, with a twinkle of merriment in his blue eyes, had said he’d get his wish and more. And he was right.

Should He Be Worried?

Yep, surrounded by turkey vultures, but he probably doesn’t know what they’re all about.

jaguar-fence-800x533Let them in here with me, and I’ll take care of them, the jaguar says.

Lioness and Vultures (588x640)Lion, King of the Vultures spicify (640x427)The lions might not care about them.

black bear side vultures (640x427)Or the bears.

rhinos and vultures (800x533)Or the rhinos.

cougar close up teeth whiskes (640x427)But come fly into our exhibits and that will give us something fun to hunt, the cougar and jaguar say.

And I’m fantasizing about roasting turkey….yum.

I Bet YOU Can’t Do This

Okay, so my grass is dying out in patches and I couldn’t figure out why. I have an automatic sprinkler. I kept meaning to check it out, so this morning, I finally remembered, and guess what?

Yep, it was OFF. No wonder my grass is dying in patches. But at least it’s an easy fix. I couldn’t have auto sprinklers anywhere else I’ve lived, so as long as they work, and I’ve turned them on for auto…it’s great!

Maybe it will rain again though. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

Sometimes You Have to be a Contortionist…

to clean the right spot.

jaguar lifting leg to lick text 600x400closeup of a moth (800x768)-RecoveredI joined a FB group that has a weekly photograph theme, and so this weeks is sepia. I’ve never done a sepia photo before, so here it is. This is of a Skipper Butterfly.

warm sepia closeup of a moth (800x768)-RecoveredI still like the warmer brown tones rather than a cool or flat sepia, so what do you think?

Okay, off to catch up on my writing. It’s foggy, got bitten up trying to plant plants yesterday and dig grass out of a flowerbed I’m working on. They have had several cases of Nile Virus in the area, so I need to be more careful.

Have a great day!!

Some Days…

Jaguar waiting for turtles to grow bigger

*sigh*

I just want to chill.

No time for it. But if I had time for it…I’d be this jaguar.
