TGIF!

 

A cold bumblebee and two caterpillars eating off the same leaf. “Hey, George, go find your own leaf.”

Baby’s here. How did Friday get here so quickly? The temperature dropped and we’d had lots of rain, so after shipping off SEAL Wolf Surrender, yes, it’s done!, I was working on Woodland Fae for a while, then pulled a ton of weeds out yesterday. Quit coming back!

It’s supposed to be cold and rain all day today, so not sure if we can even take our walk today.  But while I was editing the book, I walked 5.3 miles!

Hope you are having a fantastic TGIF!

Darkland Elf is Done! NaNoWriMo is Ongoing!

Sleeping caterpillar–original picture, and adding an interesting sky to the picture for a fantasy look.

While I was editing and proofing Darkland Elf, I ended up adding 2100 words, so made my daily goal for NaNoWriMo. It’s going to beta readers soon and I’m jumping on….I think The Witch and the Jaguar. I keep seeing scenes from the story.  But I might need to write on Woodland Fae or Claiming the White Bear…whichever pulls me into the story first.

Okay, I’m off to work!! I have to read the stories over to see which one snags my attention the most. Hope you have a beautiful day filled with magic!

Continuing with the Story & Sleeping Caterpillars

Yesterday, I had the baby and she fights sleep unless she falls asleep on my shoulder as I’m walking her. But I can’t walk her like that for two hours, so I tried to put her down, and nope, she wakes and has a fit. Walking then won’t work, because mean grandma will try to put her down again. So after hours of doing all sorts of fun things, I know she has to sleep. She’s clingy, tired, and so I think: Stroller walk! We walked the half a mile to my daughter’s development and I figured I’d take her to their play park, but every time I hit that area, she’s sound asleep. Yay! So I walk back to my house and she sleeps in the stroller.

She woke after an hour and half and I cuddled her in my arms and she slept for another half hour. But, I was also able to work on Darkland Elf and wrote another 2200 words. Once she went home, I also finished proofing Day of the Wolf, so am getting ready to turn that in today. Then back to Darkland Elf. I hope to finish writing it this weekend, then work on Woodland Fae or The Witch and the Jaguar, whichever comes to me. With this one, it’s practically writing itself, which is why I’m not stopping on the story. I also need to edit my Silver Town Christmas book next. No contract for the next wolf books yet, so continuing on my merry way to finish up other books too.

As to all of these sleepy little critters, they were having conversations of their own. Sleepy butterflies, and sleepy caterpillars. “Hey, George, you ate all the leaves!”

And: “Raindrops keep falling on my head, back, antenna, give me a break out here. I’m already cold enough!”

And that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.

Have a super wonderful weekend. Off to write!

NaNoWriMo & Monarch Butterfly Caterpillars

What do they have in common? I had to stop writing and take pictures.

Hoards of Monarch Butterflies visited the milkweed and now I have beautiful monarch butterfly caterpillars. We still will have like 81 degrees on Monday, but it’s time for all good little butterflies to head on down south.

So I made 5,341 words by last night on Darkland Elf. I’m 10,000 words over what I set as my minimum goal, and if I didn’t have baby here, I’d be writing up a storm. I hope to get at least 2,000 done today though. 🙂 I want to get this done before I start reading Day of the Wolf. I’ll probably turn that story in to my editor on Monday.

My neighbor lost a ten-foot juniper tree during the storms on Halloween the other night. We had winds up to 56 miles an hour. It always makes me worry about my swaying pine trees.

Okay, baby is due any second. Off to get ready!

Monarch Butterfly Caterpillars!

The monarch butterflies only feed off milkweed, so I’m struggling to get rid of the aphids and milkweed bugs that are trying to destroy the milkweed plants. And I found two little tiny, itty bitty monarch butterfly caterpillars. You can see how tiny they are with the one on the tiny flower bud.

Grandbaby sitting, so we had a morning walk (it was cooler out!) and she’s down for a nap (momentarily). So off to work on a snow globe Christmas card for one of my fans.  I needed to make a larger version. Note to self: Make two versions when working on photoshop. The BIG one, and the reduced size for the internet.

Vistaprint makes really nice cards, business cards, and they have their annual 50% off right now, so trying to get this done so I can get them printed off for Christmas!

Have a fabulous day! I have baby monarch caterpillars! They losing their habitat so quickly that they are dwindling in numbers every year. So I want to do my little, little, little part to help them.
