Time Sure Flies

Created this picture from Oscraps.

So the rising cases of COVID-19…well, are rising. We figured a couple of weeks after Labor Day they would go up. The problem is that we have never gotten this under control. And so many are like done with it–done with the social distancing, wearing masks, now eating out, socializing, throwing parties. With nearly 200,000 deaths, when is this… acceptable? Non-existent? Just another case of the flu?

Tell that to those who are suffering from the effects long-term, or to those who have lost family members to it.

Okay, off my soapbox. I swear I’m not going to read the darn news. What I don’t know won’t kill me. Right?

We’re having rain and more rain, love it as long as we don’t have flooding from Tropical Storm Beta. But it’s cooled it down and I just love it.

I’m working on Cougar Halloween Trouble, and had disappointing news that Wolff Bros 2 won’t be coming out until January of 2022 now. But the good news is that I can write some more indie books to fill the void for next year. Right now, I’m working on cougar Halloween and then plan to write a full length cougar novel and a jaguar novella. I’ll have the Halloween novella done soon. The novel will probably be out in December. Jaguar? Maybe I’ll write that one right after Halloween cougar. I have started it, and I have a cover.

Have a great day and be safe! I’ve got to get to writing.

My First Short Hair Photoshop Oil Painting

A tiny Purple Magic sapling flowering–I’ve never seen one this small flower!

Okay, I’m off to work. I managed 2500 words yesterday, 5500 to go. I did a ton of yard work, even though it was still way too hot. Today, it’s supposed to be 68 this morning, yay! So once it’s light, I’ll begin to work.

But I need to wrap this baby up–Tangling with the Wolf, here I come!

Have a great day!

More No Hair Practice

I’m still working on my first short hair little boy–Elevate Your Art Photoshop painting. The photo is from Pixabay.

I managed to get 2,000 words yesterday, 8K to go. It’s still hot, but tomorrow it’s supposed to be 71 in the morning, and Fri, 67! Yay! So I’ll get some yard work done.

Little one is on her way and we’ll have lots more redecorating going on I’m sure. She moves everything from one place to another, constantly. At least she’s having a ball.

Have a great day! I’ve got to get busy before she gets here.

No Hair Photoshop Painting Practice

I’m waiting on the last required photo for approval for no hair. But I need to do some more practice ones and this is one of them.

I finished edits on Wolff Bros last night, need to add acknowledgements and then turn it in. Today I’ll be trying to come up with ideas of where to go on Tangling with the Wolf novella. Hopefully, I’ll write like gangbusters.

Hope your day is great!

Runaway Dogs and Such

Still Working on No Hair Pictures–yes, she has a little peeking out.

We had storms and 2″ of rain last night, yay! So I was out weeding this morning because the weeds are easier to pull up. Both my dogs got out. The pest control man must have left the gate unlatched. I always check to make sure the gates are shut, and it looked like it from a distance.

I was out weeding out front when Tanner came running to me. He’s such a sweetie, so happy to see me. Max was long gone. I checked the backyard to make sure. He’s bad to run off. And he’s not eager to lose his newfound freedom. Tanner just wants to be with me.

Max and Tanner

It’s funny–in a dog psychology way–because Tanner is the alpha, Max the beta. Max is my lapdog, Tanner isn’t. So what’s with Max running off and Tanner not?

Anyway, Max came back, not to me, maybe he thought he’d be in trouble, but I was just glad I hadn’t lost him, and I took him inside and worked some more on the weeding. After I made sure the gate was shut.

Yesterday I spent most of the day trying to come up with a story idea for the Wolf in Trouble novella for Dreaming of the Wolf. I did finish all my promo blogs. Yay!

I finally started writing something on the novella late, so I need to type up my notes. I was trying to set up my mss for typing, but having issues with setting my indents, and just finally realized the blocking on the page somehow slipped to centered.

I’ll be off to have some fun with the kids in a little while for a couple of hours, and then home to work, then we’re having a barbecue later for Labor Day.

I’m off to weed just a wee bit more and then I’m running!

Stay safe!!!

Woohoo! Finished!

Wolff Bros 2 is finished! I finally figured out what I needed to do at the end! Yay!!!!! I did some more weeding this morning. My reward. But also, it’s cooler out this morning, so wanted to get some work done. Beta readers have the book and next I’m off to work on the promo blogs for Joy to the Wolves!

So I resubmitted so I can do my next no hair portrait. I have 2 more and then, maybe short hair? Not sure.

But first, I’m off to find the blogs I need to write for the upcoming new release. After that, Dreaming of the Wolf novella, and then! I’m writing the Halloween novella for cougars. I’ve been doing that every year for the past two years now also. They’re fun.

Okay, off to get my day started!

Have a great one!!!

Books, Books, Books

Apple and Books–Painted in Photoshop

I took a break from Wolff Bros, because the deadline for Wolf Wore Plaid is only a week away and finished editing 16 chapters. I have 11 to go! Yay!

Little one will be here today, but maybe I can get a couple done before she’s off to her home. And then a few more done before it’s too late tonight. I still feel like I’m fighting a head cold.

I submitted my portfolio for review for the Photoshop art class, and in the meantime, I’m just practicing working on other comparable photos until my work is reviewed to see if I can move forward.

Hope you have a great day! I’m trying to hibernate, work in the books, and stay out of the heat until next week when we have a cool down. And then I hope to get a million yard chores done.

Hurricane Missed Us!

We sure dodged the bullet on that one! My thoughts and prayers go out to those living in Louisiana and other areas where the brunt of the storm is hitting.

I’m working on Wolff Bros 2 edits still. At 88K. I wanted to get this done before Sept 1. But not sure I will. I have little one tomorrow and Saturday.

Okay, I’m off to work!

Have a great day!

Egg Practice

Well, weathermen are still unsure whether we’ll get some of the storm. I saw where we might get 1-2″ of rain. It’s showing rain from Wednesday through Friday.

It’s only going to be a high of 89 on Wednesday, wow! 97 today.

I’m taking little one overnight on Friday night and dropping her off on Saturday. I now have the one little room set up for her to sleep in, so we’ll see if she’ll sleep there, or end up in my bed. The problem is when she ends up in my bed is that I don’t sleep. lol I told her if she stays with me, that’s her bed and Grandma has her own bed. So we’ll see. lol

So I have 3 days of writing–today is cooler, if I could do some yard work! I’m still trying to finish the book. I’m at 87K. Goal is 89K. I will make that. I’m still just trying to finish writing the extra scenes I need. I realized, not only do I need to finish this, and write the novella, I need to write some promo blogs for the Sept release. I don’t know how Sept got here so quickly!

Have a great day!!!

Hurricane Coming?

Still Life of Vegetables

So I was coming home from a trip into town and my GPS warned that the route I was taking could be closed because of Hurricane Marco. I had to look at my weather map again! I didn’t think we were having any rain today. lol

Okay, so I think they’re preparing everyone who travels those routes in a few days.

I just got home, had to pick up little one, and we have a ton of fun things to do!

Have a great day!!
