Reflections in the Pond

On baby’s and my walk, I captured some pictures of our hot, muggy, Texas fall. And I realized there was a turtle near us. It was so muggy my lens kept fogging up (100% humidity) and then he hurried to get in the water and hide from us so the picture isn’t as clear as I’d hoped it to be. They are really shy around humans still. And I was able to show baby tons of very hungry caterpillars on the milkweed leaves, a carolina anole, the cocoon for the monarch butterfly, butterflies, honeybees, and bumblebees. So we had a science day.

Some days it’s impossible to get word count. Yesterday, it was just not possible. I was trying to finish edits when I could while baby was here. I managed 11 chapters, and still have 7 more to read through today. So I should get it done today, then back to word count on another story. I want to be able to turn in SEAL Wolf Surrender today.

We had stormy weather last night, lightning constantly. It poured, but things don’t look that wet out, too dark to really see. Our low is 65, our high 69. So much better than the heat index of 94 yesterday.

Okay, I’m off to finish SEAL…. hope you have a wondrous day!

Time for Walking…

I was trying to wear out baby yesterday, so I strollered her around for 2.8 miles, and she didn’t fall asleep. She was talking away for the longest time, then got really quiet and I thought, this is it! And headed back toward home. Then she began talking again. Two hours after our walk, she finally fell asleep. lol

Grandma was worn out. But I finally managed to write 2,000 words for the novella.

Have a great Saturday! We’re supposed to get rain, last I looked. But now it’s saying much later. I’m enjoying the cooler weather!

A Walk Through the Wetlands

I’m off to work with baby. But I loved taking a stroll through the wetlands, watching for snakes! And hoping we didn’t get lost. The leaves covered so much of the ground in the wooded area that it was hard to locate a real path. 🙂  I loved catching the sunlight streaming through the woods and didn’t realized I’d captured some sun flare. 🙂 <3

Hoping still to get to 30K on My Highlander today. Reached 28K last night. 🙂

Have a super day!!

It’s Time to Finish This Now!

Do you ever find yourself taking all kinds of pictures and never really having the time to stop and look at them? Do anything with them? Do you ever open the file and take a closer look and see the beauty you couldn’t before?

Elephant eating, turtle reflecting, snake watching, lemurs hiding.

Do you ever find yourself writing all kinds of stories and never really finishing them? They have great beginnings, and maybe great middles, but you never…finish them?

Do you ever start on a project and never quite finish it?

Sometimes it doesn’t take all that much time to stop, look over whatever you’ve been working on, and do something with it. Something fun and creative and ultimately fulfilling because you finished it.

On the other hand, maybe what you thought was okay, really isn’t, and it’s time to just get rid of it. I caution not to, though. It’s amazing what new insight, even years later, can help you to make a project shine.

I’m 20,000+ over word count and still writing the now Neverending  Story!

Have a lovely day! Babysitting day for me….

New Review for Highland Rake!

Highland Rake, Book 3
Dougald MacNeill takes Lady Alana Cameron to his laird brother James’s Craigly Castle when he finds her roaming the heather on the MacNeill lands. But who has sent her there and why? Her uncle, laird of the Cameron clan, and warring with the MacNeill for years, has made a marriage arrangement with another clan and now that is even at stake.
Having witnessed her father’s death, and even believing he had returned her home when all along he had been dead, Alana discovers she has the gift, or curse, of seeing the newly departed and sometimes those who should have long ago passed over. Her own deceased brother continues to plague her, the rake, and now another, who is very much of the flesh, Dougald MacNeill, has her thinking marrying a rake might just have its benefits. Dougald’s sister, who is one fiesty ghost, has offered to help Alana keep Dougald in line if he thinks of even straying.
But who sent Alana on a fool’s errand in the first place to remove her from the Cameron’s lands and set her squarely in Dougald’s care, and who really killed her father and her brother, and what has it all to do with Alana? Will she and Dougald learn the truth before it is too late?

Yes!!! Lovely review for Highland Rake!
Not all of my Highlander series books have paranormal elements, but this one I had a lot of fun with when Alana, the heroine, can commune with ghosts. Can you imagine if they pestered you all the time, and you had to keep it a secret in medieval times? Well, today, you could pretend to be talking to someone on a cell phone. But back then?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love The Highlanders, March 15, 2014


This book is a delightful mix of things, Handsome devilish rogue of a highlander, Dougald. Our Damsel in distress Alana who can also see ghost which adds paranormal. Murder and mystery. There is a good story to this book.

Lady Alana is lured from her clan. The MacNeill’s find her on their land and take her to their castle. Her rescuer is Douglad MacNeill who has a reputation as a rake. I don’t want to get into spoilers because it will ruin it for you but the romance is hot. The ghosts can be comical sometimes and in with it all they have to solve why Alana’s brother and father were murdered and if some one wants her dead too!
If you like the old Highlander clan books with their feuds and male attitudes you will love this. Terry Spear is a great story teller.

Thanks to Pam, for loving the story!

Do you see the turtle in the swamp? This was at the Arboretum in Spring, Texas.

I’m off to write on A SEAL Wolf for Sale. Spent the day brainstorming with Donna and Bonnie, but now it’s time to write. 🙂

Oh, and had another personalized bear order to make up for a new baby!

Have a super great Saturday!!!
