More Proofing

I knew more of this would be coming, but I’ve had such a horrible time at sleeping because my shoulder/arm hurts all night long, that I’m so tired all day I’m not getting half of what I need to get done, done.

I took two Ibuprofen last night to see if that would help, and I think it did some. So maybe I can get back on track with sleep and productivity!

I need to finish up Jade Bear, but I need to find a paisley ribbon if I can and then add the names on the paws.

And I made up another bear for a possible sale, but it was too dark last night when I finished it to take a photo of it, so I will today.

I got You Had Me at Jaguar proofing last night in, so need to do that also. And I wrote 700 words on Cougar. Since yesterday was a baby day, I don’t usually have much time to do anything else but take care of her. And then when she goes home, I’m usually too tired to do a whole lot. lol

I was working on the bear a couple of times while she was here on Wednesday and Friday and I showed her the bear ears and placed them against my head and then on hers. Her newest word is: “Cool.” She loves all the bears sitting around but she’s good about understanding that those are Grandma’s bears, not hers to play with.

It’s cold out! Yay!!! It’s all relative. What’s freezing for us (51 degrees when we’ve been 75 in the mornings) is warm to others. With 98 highs, and then now 70 highs that feel colder by a few degrees is a huge change. But I love it.

Okay, I’m off to do something productive, yet, I want to go back to sleep. If I could.

Have a great one!!!

Choose Your Poison

I took the picture of the jar at my daughter’s house and then embellished it, but truly, do you know what it is you’re drinking? I don’t mean spirits either. But all the sugars and the stuff you don’t know about? The minerals and vitamins that you’re supposed to take to make you feel on top of the world. The vitamins and minerals you should be getting from your food, unless medications you’re taking strip them out of your system. The “natural” herbs from the wild that are supposed to give you long life or miraculous cures that aren’t regulated in the least?

Maybe it’s the same as drinking some of this powdered skull, eh?

Okay, well I spent yesterday finishing up a scene, writing another, and I think I’m nearly to the end. It’s a good thing because I’m nearly to the deadline. I’m up to 106,000 words and will probably be at least to 107,000 today. It’s still not done. I’ll need to read it all the way through again after I finally finish it. But it’s getting closer!

Once it’s done, I’ll need a drink. That powdered skull is sounding good. I wonder if it will give me more insight and great ideas for my stories?

Have a super great day!!!!

Spooky Weather

We had another 4 inches of rain yesterday on top of the 19 inches we already had. We have only a 20% chance of rain today, so not likely we’ll have any.

I took a picture of one of my daughter’s decorations for Halloween and embellished it.

So I’m off and charging on with the story. I’m at 101,000 words now, maybe, maybe, maybe an end in sight.

Hope you have a beautiful day. If the roads aren’t too flooded, I’m going to try and get some groceries. Or, just keep writing.

When it Rains, it…

Little Chickaee on a Wet Rosebush

Pours. 19″ of rain, roads flooded, and schools are out today. We were under 40 flood watches last night, down to 10 flood watches today, and only 50% chance of rain this afternoon.

My daughter is off from work because of the flooding and we’re having a tea tasting party and watching a movie. Then I’m back to writing.

Ten days to go, and I still am a LONG way from getting the book done. Argh.

Have a super day! We finally got rain! And rain. And rain. And….

Giant Swallowtail and Storms

It’s been a morning and a half. About 2 months ago, I reinjured my shoulder where I’d torn the rotator cuff. It took a year to heal. But thankfully, in 14 years, it was fine. Until I reinjured it. I think it was lifting all those 40 lbs of bags of mulch, 18 of them about 2 months ago. Anyway, it kept getting worse and worse and worse. The first time, I had a frozen shoulder and could only raise my arm part way. I had to have surgery. It’s not as bad this time, but it aches constantly and so sleeping is intermittent.

So this morning I was in awful pain as usual, and I just gave up on it and began editing the book again at 4 am. We’ve had torrential storms from the tropical storm and had 9″ of rain already. I had to take the dogs out on their leashes to get them to do their duty. NO WAY were they going out in the lightning and thunder and pouring rain to do anything. They could hold it. Right. lol But if I took them out, they felt a little safer.

Anyway, so I’m up to ch 15, trying to still figure out how to end this. If I could get a couple of good nights of sleep, maybe I could figure it out!

I had made so many changes, so many new scenarios, so many shifts of scenes that I need to see if it was all working. So far, so good.

Have a great day! I love the rain. I wish it would spread out a little and not all come at once though!

Hummingbird Art

I’m off and running this morning. I wrote another 3,000 words yesterday, did all kinds of switching scenes around which changes things a lot. What? They were going to bed but now it’s daytime? Lunch is breakfast? This isn’t relevant. Oh, no, need more setup here now. Anyway, somehow with all the moving around of stuff, I still managed to write more. I’m at 95,000.

Off to do my thing.

Have a super lovely day!

Hummingbird

I finished edits on Night of the Billionaire Wolf and turned it in. Yay! Now I’m back to Red Wolf Christmas. It’s due in 2 weeks and I’m still working on it. It would be all right if I had it finished and was just editing it, but…it’s not finished. ugh.

This morning I moved a scene to a couple of chapters earlier. Which changes things for the next about 3 chapters. The butterfly effect. I haven’t figured out the ending, or what ties everything together yet. sigh. It’s got to come soon!

Okay, I’m off to work on it and hope your day is beautifully orchestrated.

Giant Swallowtail

on a Giant Zinnia

Their wings flap so fast constantly that I never know if I’ve just gotten a blur or something nice and clear.

I’m off to proof another 160 pages of Night of the Billionaire Wolf. Need to get this turned in so I can get back to Red Wolf Christmas.

Another sizzler for three more days and then the temps will be around 91 for a high, yay!

Have a super fun day!!!

Storms

I’m running out of time. NEED to finish this book and read the other to turn in. With my granddaughter, it’s hard to get much done.

I’m off to write. She’s back tomorrow again. And then four days of no granddaughter and all writing.

We ended up with 4 inches of rain yesterday, 3 inches for the first storm and an inch for the second. Yay!

Hope you have a beautiful day! I’m just so glad it rained!

Alpha and His Cheese Its!

It’s an enrichment program they have at the wolf reserve in Omaha. He didn’t just find trash lying around. They put chicken bones in it and he has to search out the prize. He found it and he took off running. MINE.

Reminds me of my granddaughter. She looked in the fridge this morning, pointed to my yogurt and said, “Mine.”

Yep, from wolves to kids, it’s the same deal.

I’m off to play with her…hope to get some work done on the story, or reading done on the other. We had rain!!! Yes! Three inches. We sure needed it.

Have a great day!!!
