The pelicans were in a boring place, so creating this photo art and set them free.
Working on the new book. I wrote a synopsis and will turn it in today. Little one will be here soon, so I need to…well, she’s here and I just got back to this. 4,000 words on the new book and upward and onward! We’ve been putting away recycled Christmas bags, washing dishes, and sheets, feeding the birds, and putting out tea bags in the recycle bin. She loves to help me and it makes it more fun for me too.
Fixing breakfast. Her favorite? Hash Browns. Her mommy doesn’t make them and I love them too.
I feel like a broken record. Still working on the White Wolf book rewrites. I came to the end of the book, found a scene that I had moved around and around and it belongs earlier in the book, so trying to figure out where to put it now. lol Okay, finally found its home. Still need a more finished ending to the story though. Will work on that until I have to pick up little one today.
In the meantime, I read where some people in Texas were getting humongous electric bills. Not just what I had heard via the grapevine before but some Texans received electric bills amounting to $17,000. Forget paying the mortgage, car payments, health insurance, home insurance, car insurance–taxes!, other bills, for food, gas, or whatever else you need to live on during the month because all your money, and the loan you’re going to have to take out will have to pay for the electric bill. Is that nuts, or what?
Like I said before, heads should roll over this whole fiasco. Now some are saying that the government is going to help people like that out who were charged such high bills. Well, thank you very much, but why is this even happening in the first place? And what does helping customers out mean in real terms? That their normal $200+ bill would still be a $200+ bill, or they might have to still pay a couple of thousand?
We have plenty of sun and wind in the state, but the powers that be want to keep their money in the fossil fuels which means Texas is literally screwed. Well, except for those who reap the benefits of profits from fossil fuels. Will someone please step forward who is truly for the PEOPLE and progress?
My electric bill comes due in a few days and I’m hoping I won’t have any heart attack surprises like that too. It didn’t look like it when I looked at my account, but who knows, right? None of these people knew they were going to get that kind of a bill either.
I really, really, really believe this year will get better. Sometime. Some day. Hopefully sooner than later!
I have faith. Unless I end up with a $17,000 electric bill.
At the Waco zoo, they had a really cool bird walk-through and the birds were just not afraid of us. The place was empty on Friday after Thanksgiving, so we had the place practically to ourselves for a few hours. Several of the birds were sitting on the fence keeping the wild animals (that’s us) out of their home, so they were right next to the walkway. (The bald eagle was in an enclosure of his own.)
Love the pelicans. They always remind me of a pterodactyl.
I’m up at 1, couldn’t sleep, so thought I’d get some things done, like unpacking my suitcase, blogging, and editing on Woodland Fae.
The temperature dropped thirty degrees from yesterday, so it went from 63 in the morning to 33. Too much of a drop!! But by Thursday it will be 76 again. Weird weather.
