I love the bluebirds. I thought they would only come to your yard for bugs, so I tried mealworms, but the dogs were the only ones that would eat them! But the bluebirds come for the mixed seeds that have nuts and fruit also.
I finished Bite of the Vampire, but now need to proofread it. I’m working on Night of the Vampire, but once I don’t have my grandson here all day, I’ll begin reading Flight of the White Wolf and Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas so I can remember the characters and then develop an idea for a story. The white wolf stories came out in 2017 and 2018, so it’s been a while since I’ve read them! Bite of the Vampire should be released in a couple of weeks. Night of the Vampire, probably next year. I have 15K on it, but so many other stories that need to be written this year.
Hope you all have a great day. My granddaughter gets out of school in 3 and a 1/2 weeks, so it will be harder to get my writing done, but I have a little more time on the White Wolf book than I did with Highland Wolf!
Off to get some things done before little one arrives.
So it was a late day with the kids yesterday so I didn’t quite make 1,000 on edits and little one is back today, sooooooo……
This was a goldfish photo I took and then added textures.
I’m trying to get this post done before he gets here! We had a great time at the grocery store and man did he eat yesterday. I think he’s going through a growing spurt. Nice walk to pick up sister at school too. Got to get ready for them.
They are so adorable. When I first saw it, I thought my eyes were deceiving me. A brown and white zebra? But then I realized the young ones were brown and white. I thought it was a different species of zebra. So cute!
No baby today. We really have a terrific time. He loves to help me with dumping recycling paper and kitchen scraps in the composter and feeding the birds. My granddaughter helped me spin the composter around and scooped up doggy poop. It’s a great long handled device that actually grabs it, not like when I was a kid and had to try to get it up with a garden shovel. I made sure baby didn’t chase the dogs while in the middle of doing their business. When they hold still, he goes after them. He’s really good with them though. He pets them on the back and he’s so gentle. He will be an animal person for sure when he grows up. He loves watching the birds and squirrels. He loves pointing out the moon. “The moon! The moon!”
And somehow on the two baby days, including my granddaughter for Monday, I was able to get 2,000 words each day. I still have 9,000 to go, but that’s never the end of the story. I usually get around 86-90K by the time it’s done. And I only have 18 days left. I’m hoping to have a week left after I finish it so that my beta readers have a chance to read it.
That’s my goal. I sent half of the pictures to the magazine feature, and need to do another 4 and the interview also. Once I’m done with Highland Wolf, I need to get started on the white wolf book. 🙂
These were on display at the arboretum in Minnesota. Really beautiful. I wanted to give them life.
My granddaughter ended up having a fever and other than helping me wrap her brother’s birthday presents and take a walk and read his new books the night before when she was feeling well, then setting up her fairy garden, she was just not feeling well. So no Easter egg decorations. She did read a couple of books to me and we watched the Jurassic World kid’s show. Hopefully she won’t have a fever today.
We had 2″ of rain on Thursday, haven’t been able to see how much for yesterday yet, still dark out.
Okay, well, I managed to get 62K, can’t believe I made word count while she was here. I only have 18K more words until word count. I have both kids on Monday, so no word count that day. And my artwork is being featured in another magazine, so I need to get some new photos artified for that.
I only have 28 more days to write, and need 30k for minimum word count, but getting there!
They’re always longer than that, so still hunkering down to get this done on time. Easter next weekend, so I’m having my granddaughter stay overnight on Thursday since she’ll be out of school on Friday. Then all the Easter stuff over the weekend, so I need to keep after the writing too because I can’t make allowances for any days off from word count.
The roses are blooming in abundance. And lots of the flower seeds I put out are sprouting. At least I hope they are and they’re not new weeds. lol
