I was in a pink mood. Gold yesterday. Green tomorrow. White one day. Blue another. Colors can evoke emotions. I have to remember to include them in my writing.
I’m a little over halfway done on proofing Relative Danger. I’m hoping to get it done today. No grandchild care, so I’m free to just work on this. The dogs are bugging me to eat. I got up at 4:30, way too early to feed them, though I took them out in the dark this morning to potty. So that’s next on the agenda. And then back to proofing.
I have an infestation of moths. I must have let in a pregnant one and now I’m constantly killing moths. ugh.
I’m off to feed the ravenous dogs!! And walk them before it gets too hot. Oh, it’s cooler today. Yay! Just checked the weather forecast. Maybe storms around 11. Not holding my breath. They’ve been saying that for three days.
Have a super great day! Mine’s going to be great with the cool down and hopeful rain! And working on the green fairy art too. 🙂
I love fairies and wolves. Well, and a lot of other things.
I just finished edits on Wolf Takes the Lead and turned it in. I started working on editing Relative Danger, previously released. I have a new cover for it, so I want to update it.
Still taking care of my granddaughter, so once she goes home, I can concentrate on it and maybe get it done by the weekend and then republish it with the new title. Then? It’s time to get back to Lachlan’s story. Sometimes it helps me to write on a current story after I’ve read a couple of others I had to work on. I’ll reread it from beginning to end and then hopefully be able to figure out how to finish it.
Another hot day. No rain. *sigh* Maybe Thursday we’ll get some, but I’m not holding my breath.
I love the little miniature roses. The rosebush can get fairly big. I have a white one and a yellow one that have grown to about 3 feet tall, but the roses themselves are like little fairy roses, miniature. Of course the Encore red rosebush I have has regular size roses and it’s about 8 feet tall. But I have other miniatures that are very tiny. They probably need to be relocated.
Off to take some pictures of the yellow miniatures. They’ve been blooming like crazy.
Seagull is from Daytona Beach. Mermaid created with Daz3D.
I’ve been working all morning on trimming back crepe myrtles. I don’t top them, but I trim off the lower branches to form a nice tree. The peeling bark on crepe myrtles make the trunks just as beautiful as the foliage and flowers. So one is blooming! It’s a red, but its flowers came out pink this year. lol
And I have two beautiful volunteers are realize are weeping crepe myrtles. I love them, but never bought any. I was trimming the base of them too so they would grow up a bit and other plants below them could still do well. I love weeping trees. They’re majestic and it adds something unique to the garden.
Well, little one is here, so we walked and will do the splash pad later this afternoon. It’s going to be another scorcher today. The mermaid has the right idea, stay in the water and stay cool!
Butterfly at Wild Kingdom. I love butterfly exhibits and could stay in one and take pictures all day.
I’ve done some weeding. I could do a ton more, but I want to write. I caught the rat that was eating my tomatoes and chewed a hole through the fence. But of course there are tons more. I heard one in the wall yesterday afternoon, scratching like it was as big as my 15 lb dogs. I thought it was them! Until I saw them watching me, waiting for me to get rid of the rat. ugh. Time to call the exterminator.
I managed 3,000 words, 4,000 behind still. But if I can get 3,000 a day, that whittles down the amount by a 1,000 each day. Off to write!!
Thunderstorms this morning. I hadn’t expected that! I decided to make some Valentine Art. Hopefully the bird delivers her message before the cats get to it. 🙂
Have a super fun day! I have babysitting duty for baby this afternoon and was going to take him for a walk, but not sure now about the weather. And I turned in Christmas Wolf Surprise, so started working on edits on A Wolf’s Second Chance. And then have to get back to word count on it.
So my theme is Valentine’s or Love for February. Created the fairy and lions from Daz3D.
I guess I had talked to my daughter about taking my granddaughter Friday night, but I was thinking more of next weekend so I could get more done on the story. Then she drops her off and I’m like, okay, I have her tonight! lol
It’s still really cold and I had my usual bad sleep when little one stays here.
I still need to get my 2,000 word count and I was lacking 300 words yesterday. Once she was here, that was it on writing.
The chickadees rarely sit still for me, so I got lucky, though it would have been better if the chain hadn’t been in the way.
So I forgot to blog today. Little one is here today and we were trying to learn how to read some words. She hates doing it, so I was trying to make it fun. If she could read the word on the card, she took a step forward. When she read enough and was to me, we hugged. Now what can be better than that?
She’s down for a nap, but she should be up any minute now. It’s a rainy day. We hurried to the mailbox to get the mail before we got too wet and did the same to feed the birds. 100% chance rain all day and night.
