Going at a Snail’s Pace is…

Not happening! Not if I want to get anything done!

I’m sure the fae were at work yesterday–hassling me. It all started with trying to get directions to an appointment I had that morning. Google Maps said it would take me 4 hours and 1 min to get there. Wait, what???? Walking.

That was only the BEGINNING of my wild morning. But baby’s here and I’ve got to run! No walking allowed. Not with a toddler on the go. I plan to take her to critter hour at the children’s museum, if everything works out.

And we have to run errands! It’s harder to run them with a toddler, but at the same time, I don’t get a lot done during the day when she’s here, so it gives me time to do things I really need to do and then I can write on the days she’s not here. Win-win for me! AND, sometimes she falls asleep! Which she really needs to do, but fights all the time.

So we’re off to have fun! Have a great day!!!

“Leave it, Tanner. Tanner, drop it.” Outside, I’m having a better success at getting him to drop things. Inside…I turn him upside down, not like by the legs. I hold him like a baby and just tilt my arms so that he’s part way upside down, but still totally secure against me, and then he drops whatever he’s got that I don’t want him to have.

🙂 I know. I know. It’s totally not the way to go. He’s getting my attention when I need to just be firmer with him.

Ha!

He’s way too stubborn. And if I try to take it away from him, then it’s a really fun game of tug-of-war, even if I’m not pulling and just telling him to drop it. 🙂

But we’ll get there. 🙂

I took a close up photo with my phone of a snail, wow. Amazing how great it looks.

I’ve been finishing up some bears. Note while I was taking pictures of the bears, Max was helping with MacLeod Clan Bear to make sure he was sitting up properly. These two are for one order, and I’m finishing up two more for another order.

I got 2,000 words done on Taming the Wild Cougar.

Taming the Wild Cougar WEB 05082015

But I was 1300 short on Billionaire. Was doing some brainstorming and research though.

And, I’ve been walking 3 miles for the last 3 days. 🙂

Soooo, off to blog and another site and then it’s time to work on Billionaire, and make up for yesterday! And finish up the last two bears!

Have a super great Saturday!!! Mine is totally booked!

The Snail with a Beautiful Shell

Did you know that baby snails have a soft shell and as they eat calcium, it hardens? Remember how important calcium is to our bones and teeth? Well, for a snail, it’s his home, protection, burden to carry. 🙂

Snail’s Beautiful Shell

But what makes the shell so beautiful, or not? Genetics? Mom and Pop? Luck? I saw a ton of snails in the yard that day, only I couldn’t capture them because I ran out of space on my card. Ugh.

I managed to capture him, and he was beautiful. Does he know it? Does it make him more conceited than the other snails? Ahhh, but who’s to say what constitutes beauty? Truly, it is in the eye of the beholder.

To his fellow snails, he might not be beautiful at all.

Have a super great fun and frisky Friday!

Escargot…on the lamb…

escargot (640x427)

Do you ever notice the small things in life? The dewdrops on the grass? The snail slithering around?

Who would ever have thought taking puppies out for a bathroom break would yield such treasures?

Anyone for escargot?

He’s the one that got away.
