Antique? White Rocking Horse

This rocking horse is smaller, so my jester bear doesn’t look so tiny on the big horse.

Running late on blogging. Trying to get several posted for different sites and getting books ready to ship. Trying to multi-task isn’t working. lol I have lots of half-finished things.

6 Degrees Cold–Freezing Rain

Ice on the suet bird feeder

I caught the cardinal below the window, the blinds were open, couldn’t pull them up without scaring him off, but he’s even got ice on his tail feathers and their bird feeder has a layer of frozen water on top.

I finished two of the bears and have them and books to ship, but we’re going to have freezing rain all day today and it’s only 6 degrees out for now. Soooo…

Campbell Clan bear and MacPherson Clan bear are ready to go to Australia!

The Matheson Clan Bears are nearly ready. Just need some more clan fabric from Scotland.

And I’m off to work on taxes, a student’s lesson, and getting books and bears ready to ship.

But, no matter what, I can’t quit thinking of books. Two days away from the STORY, or STORIES, was way more than a break that I needed.

So last night I was mulling over A SEAL Wolf for Sale, which is the next deadline book I have. And The Viking’s Highland Lass, which I have written 14,000 words on, but am not sure I’m going in the right direction on it. So more pondering on that. However, I have come up with the way I will begin SEAL. I want fun, excitement, adventure, the usual. 🙂 And I think I have the right scenario in mind.

I have ice on the inside of my kitchen window. Which means I need to replace it!!!

Have a lovely Monday! Hope you are not having icy weather like me. 🙂

I often forget to include a link to my bears when I’m posting about them, but here ’tis: www.celticbears.com

And just a reminder, Silence of the Wolf is available online and at stores tomorrow. Actually online, the orders are already shipped. 🙂

Mission: Fog

That was my mission. Take pictures of the fog. I love fog. It reminds me of vampires. And ghosts. And the mystery beyond.

So when I see a fun, foggy day, I take pictures. Only this time I thought I’d try to capture the fog and then do a black and white version of it. Some of the photographers’ sites I visit have the most gorgeous black and white photos. Total novice here, but I thought it was interesting, nonetheless.

It’s a bit cluttered with telephone pole, wires, a fence post, hose roped around it, a picture of the bare field in between my property framed by trimmed hedges and then my neighbors of his trimmed peach orchard, and beyond, trees in the distance. It’s also interesting to see the fog layers and how deep it is the further out you get. It shows a country life where wildflowers can grow with abandon.

And this was taken on my other neighbor’s side where the fog was even more pronounced. Actually, it was getting thicker by the time I moved to the backyard.

But I was thwarted on my mission to take pictures of the fog.

Because of him.

Here I was happily looking for fun fog shots and he was in the backyard, looking at me when I must have taken the 2nd fog picture. I turned to take one of my back acreage, and there he was. The farmer was actually getting ready to sow his crops so was making a racket right next to my yard, yet Wiley, the Road Runner, just watched me and let me take several pictures of him surrounded by henbit, the wild purple flowers around him.

And then I worked on bears for one bear order, 3 Matheson Clan bears. They have their tams/bonnets on, but are bear chested, needing their sashes still, and waiting on the fabric to come from Scotland.
And then I have to finish up the Campbell and MacPherson Clan bears for another order.
So that’s my mission today.
And our nice warm weather dropped in temperature, because it’s March! Prediction of ice on Tuesday.
Do your plans ever go asunder?

Cougar’s Mate and the Near Catastrophe


Doesn’t that sound like the title of a book?

If I just told you that I wrote the story and then it was ready to go and then it was ready to read, that wouldn’t be any fun at all, would it? Stories need conflict.

So I put ten hours into proofing it one more time, and then… get an error message when I saved it. Now, I’ve gotten them before, no problem. Not this time. I saved it under a couple of different files I would need and then went to send a copy to myself, just as a precaution, and guess what? Instead of 526K of story, I had 0K. Nothing. Zero. Nada.

I don’t have panic attacks except over losing a book I just wrote!!! I can lose half a page I’ve written and be upset. Fire in the kitchen? I can deal with it. First snake in the house, no problem. Second snake in the house…it was biting at me, so, okay, that was giving me a slight amount of angst.

But lose a book I’ve just written? That’s the reason to have a panic attack. And I had lost an entire book, years ago when I had nothing else to save on but a CD disk, and I still wish I had a way to get it back!

After a couple of hours of searching on the internet for a solution, not wanting to shut down Word or the computer,  I had planned on uploading the finished manuscript to bookselling sites right after saving it, I hadn’t figured out the problem.

I called my daughter, but I’d already tried everything she suggested. And my mss was sitting there, right before my eyes. And yet? I couldn’t save it. I have to say that I did have earlier copies of it, but not the one I just spent 10 hours working on.

Well, she suggested I save the mss on a thumb drive and then try it on my laptop. I did. And it opened fine. Then I emailed myself a copy.

And then with a whole lot of trepidation, I was going to turn off my computer and restart it. So I began shutting everything down, including Word and it said there was some kind of glitch. Did I want to restart it?

So I was like, yes!!!

And once Word restarted, all my work was there. Plus, like 10 copies of the mss in various forms of distress. I had copy and pasted some into notepad which makes them lose all their formatting.

The happily ever after is that, the mss was fine, uploaded to the sites last night, and I have it saved everywhere! If you ever have trouble with something you’ve written and you save it and it shows you have 0K, maybe you can do what I did to recover it. At least for me and for this time, it worked.

But I just thought you should know that sometimes what seems like a smooth process can be anything but, and that’s perfect for a story, don’t you think?

daffodil fun 500

I had to take another picture of the daffodils as they’re doing a beautiful job of blooming, and though I didn’t think it would ever happen here, they are multiplying! So I’m excited about that!

I’m taking the weekend off from writing to catch up on working on bear orders and such. 3 Matheson Clan bears, 1 Campbell Clan bear, and 1 MacPherson Clan bear. See? Even Highland bears are hot! 🙂

Are you having a fun weekend?

Interesting Doors…

Weird things fascinate me. These doors were in Savannah, Georgia. I was having a discussion about doors with my daughter yesterday, and she was telling me that they put temporary doors on the homes they’re constructing because thieves steal the doors. Huh? Who would have ever thought it.

Okay, so maybe doors are more of a precious commodity than I thought. But unique doors fascinate me.

This one was at the Cotton Exchange.

And these were taken in Salado, Texas. These doors might look like ordinary doors, but they were only about 5 feet tall, if that? Little tiny doors. And very narrow.

tiny inside doors (533x800)

I found it fascinating on the doors of this period in all of the old houses redone as shops and how many of them had windows above.

Back to writing! Reached 55,000 last night, but still 5,000 short for the week on A Highland Wolf Christmas. *sigh* With the holidays coming up, I’m running out of time! But I remind myself when I started this venture, I had Chapter 1 written. As in the heading: Chapter 1. Not the whole chapter. So 25,000 to go! Much better than 25,000 done and 55,000 to go!

Oh, and while I was talking to my daughter about Halloween and how some have over a 1,000 trick-or-treaters at their door–wow, she was telling me how she had one girl show up in a bra and panties–about 14. Who let her out of the house dressed like that???

Have a super Sunday!!!

Sunset in Texas & the North Star and the Moon

Oct sunset, moon, north star (800x748)

Note there are other specks of stars surrounding the moon and North Star.  The sky is filled with stars this morning and I tried to capture them with my camera but it’s only showing blackness. But I loved seeing the Dippers in the early morning darkness. Ever go star gazing?

What do you see?

Do NOT Feed the Alligators–Why Need a Sign???

AAD Conference, 2013, Savannah 085 (800x534)

Here, you go to the swamplands and there are signs–watch out for rattlesnakes, no alligators. 🙂  But in Savannah, who would think to feed the alligators???

AAD Conference, 2013, Savannah 128 (800x533)

When we were walking through Savannah and taking pictures of the old buildings, one of the ladies pointed up at the “lady in white” watching out the window. How cool to see such a sight and make us feel as though we had really stepped back in time!

This is the paddle wheeler we took for a night of wild partying.

Suspension bridge cloaked in fog that night.  Cool, right?

It’s hard to tell from this picture, but these cargo boats are HUGE.

Okay, that’s it for today. Have to get back to editing Hero of a Highland Wolf.

herohighlandwolf-300 (487x800)

Have to show him off every chance I get…and then it’s back to writing.

Have a super Tuesday!!!
