Fall Colors and Jacques Le Jester Bear

Pear Fall Leaves

I was getting ready to have dinner when I saw the pear tree in fall colors. I had to stop what I was doing and run out with the camera. We don’t get much in the line of fall colors here, so I was excited. 🙂 And I’m working on a jester bear for a possible order. An earlier one I made won first place for Best Dressed Bear.

And I’ve finished proofing the print copy of Call of the Cougar, so off to work on Phantom Fae!

Have a lovely Tuesday!

Going to the Birds!!

I finished a first “official” edit of Jaguar Pride, but will make several passes through before I send it to my beta readers. I have a scene I need to add, and a couple of loose ends I need to cover. But I needed to take a break from it and start fresh with it tomorrow.

Which means? I started on the 13 guest blogs and interviews for the Silence of the Wolf blog tour in March. Before long, it will be time to turn them in. (5 down, 8 to go) I also read 4 of the 8 Rita books I needed to judge and they are due in March. So it all takes time.

But… I had to take a break, so see what I did on my break?

I took pictures! I read about another author who had bird feeders out and so she got a new camera and took some fun pictures of the birds and squirrels, and I thought how cool! And another friend tells me how she’s always refilling her bird feeders in snow-buried Minnesota, so I thought I would get some bird feeders too. Only nothing’s feeding at them.  I realize from this I’m rather impatient. LOL

Still, the winds were so high, they scattered finch seed from the feeder on the patio, and I had white crowned sparrows feeding. And my male cardinal came down also.

The female cardinal usually hides, but this evening, she was out with the male, and they were dying to come down and eat some of the sunflower and other seeds I put out for them today. Here is the cardinal in a pear tree. 🙂

And here is the female. He joined her when I came out to take a picture of them, but I missed capturing them together.

So do you have feeders out and if so, what kinds of birds are you getting?
