He’s asking when she’s going to get dinner on the table.
We’re under a tornado watch, 60 mph gusts of wind, and thunderstorm warnings this morning. It’s been raining all night and thundering like crazy. I can’t get my dogs out to go to the bathroom. I tried several times, went out with them every time, but it’s a no go. “What? Are you crazy, Momma?” I don’t blame them.
So hopefully they can hold it for another 3 hours.
So yesterday, I was in the zone for writing Vampire Redemption, but I’m still sick, at least in the morning it was really bad and I’ve nearly got 3,000 words. Nothing is stopping me.
Then my daughter calls. “Are you well enough to go shopping at garden centers?”
OMG yes. I mean, I was feeling better by then, and she read about companion plants to me that will help keep the bugs off the ones you want to keep bug free, while we kept throwing her corgis outside. Both have diarrhea now, and she was doing what I was doing, cleaning out crates, bedding, floors. I’m so glad they’re home. lol
They love me though and were eager to see me again, after I had them Friday through Sunday. Little one was at daycare. So my daughter and I had lunch out, then went to Home Depot and Lowes. I picked up some bark mulch and flower seeds. One of my neighbors calls me the flower lady. Some call me the bear lady. Others the wolf lady. lol
So despite having lunch out, picked up some bark mulch and a few flower seeds, I managed to write 4,000 words on Vampire Redemption. I wanted to do more, but I was sick again in the evening and so tired from not sleeping that I went to bed early.
I’m feeling better this morning, but have a dental appointment. Important, of course, but a necessary evil.
I’m off to write before I have to leave. Must get word count on Highland Wolf today. I’m nearly done with Vampire Redemption, which is why I could write so much on it yesterday. Yay!!
I’ll probably let it sit once it’s done and read it over a little later to make sure I didn’t leave loose ends in the story. And then I’ll try and write a jaguar novella while I’m working on Highland Wolf.
Lions at several different zoos. I keep thinking of what might tangle with a jaguar… (shifter-wise).
Otherwise, I’m continuing to work on the fae print books. Two are done, 7 need to be proofed and so I’m working on that today. Yesterday, I had to finish formatting two of them, so I was only able to read two of them to proof them. 🙂
In the meantime, if you live in the US, and would like one of the older versions of the print books that I have on hand, just email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and I’m back to proofing!! We had humongous thunderstorm right overhead and I moved the puppies next to my bed.
Hope you are staying safe with all the unsettled weather about! Have a super day!!
I’m certain you already knew this–isn’t everyone born knowing this? (My dad and mom’s favorite statement when something is soooo obvious)…but I was looking over some of my zoo pictures, and voila! Lions have spots!!!
Okay, so this is what I know: Jaguars and Leopards have spots (rosettes), and tigers have stripes, and lions… well, they’re supposed to be solid color! Or so I thought. So when did lions begin to have spots???
Maybe these are just really old lions and the spots aren’t like their natural coloration but… the dreaded–age spots.
So if you didn’t know it… lions and lionesses have spots.
