Since my granddaughter didn’t show up yesterday, holiday, surprise to me since her mom’s job means she often has to work some of the holidays, I managed to get some work done on Claiming the White Bear’s print book. See, a day off does not mean a day off. It means an extra day to work! And I was glad!!
I managed to create the print cover, formatted the book, and halfway proofed it. I wanted to finish it and get ahead on my word count on Wolff Brother, BUT, that was a little too much for one day.
Today, I need to get word count, run errands, yet, what I want to do is finish proofing the book. I’m going to try and do all of it today. Try.
Hope you are having a grand day!! I’m off to proof some more! Oh, and it is going to be 70 degrees today. Weird, weird weather. But enjoying it! Temperatures are dropping again tomorrow.
Baby is on her way and I have a maternity shoot tomorrow, but I finished my bear orders and promo blogs for Flight of the White Wolf. Now, I need to write the next jaguar story. Still trying to figure out the first meet!
The maternity shoot is free and I hope I do it justice. The young lady is a good friend of my daughter and set up her baby shower for her. I was volunteered, I didn’t offer. 🙂
She loved the ones I had done of my daughter and son-in-law, but we did it at the golden hour, and most of my pictures were soft. Still working on capturing clear images for people. 🙂 <3 I took those last March.
These are the bears I finished for orders. And I have another, but waiting on baby’s birth date. The supermoon was beautiful yesterday. Today, it’s hidden by clouds. And the other was the lunar eclipse, but I focused on the tree branches instead of the moon to show what was in my way as I was photographing the moon. 🙂
I had already taken the puppies out at 5 am, and then around 6, I looked to see what the weather was going to be like for the day because it was so cold that morning. Oh, oh, oh: Super Moon, Blue Moon, Total Lunar Eclipse started ten minutes earlier. By the time I got my camera and the right lens on, and ran outside, the moon was already eclipsing. Fast. And I didn’t have time to grab a jacket. It was 37 and COLD. I was out there for about an hour taking pictures.
No tripod to hold the heavier lens, so I finally ran inside, grabbed a bunch of boxes of bear fur, stacked them on a patio table, and, didn’t work. Ran back in and got some of my books and stacked them higher, and took steadier shots. On the one, I focused on the tree branches to show that the tree was in the way!! They turned out pretty cool. This morning we have all cloud cover, so I was glad we had a clear morning to see it anyway!
I was coming back from Colorado Springs where I attended a readers’ conference as a featured author, and one of my fans told me I had to make sure I saw the Super Moon! Only I was flying in really late that night, in airports, had been stormy a lot–so really had my doubts…and if I was on the wrong side of the airplane, if the moon was even visible, I wouldn’t see it.
But all the stars and planets were lined up just perfectly. And there as big as day, the moon and I were suspended in the night sky together. I’m certain the lady next to me thought I was nuts as I was taking pictures. Or maybe… she wished she was sitting where I was… with a beautiful view of the super moon.
Fourteen months and it will be here again–next year in August. I have a different readers’ conference to attend. I wonder where I’ll be when the next one is visible? 🙂 I remember seeing a moon like this some years ago, and running home to get my camera, but the huge, huge moon had shrunk in size by the time I was ready to take a shot.
Did you see the last super moon?
