Mushrooms were day 6 (the egg is buried under them). I was reading about how you should eat slowly, drink water before getting seconds so you feel fuller, use a smaller plate (I think that’s a great idea), eat 5 vegetable servings a day…hmm, I usually eat 3. And basically, break habit routines. Mine is eating dessert after a meal. I don’t need it. I’m full. Yet I crave it. So I need to break that habit.

I’m halfway through proofing Vampire Redemption. And the taxes are ready to go to the accountant, yay! And I need to start autographing books to go readers and get them ready to ship. I already received the promo stuff for the Billionaire story coming out in May, so I need to start writing those blogs. But also, I have the 10th Anniversary release of Legend of the White Wolf coming out THIS MONTH, so I need to get on that. I’m waiting on the other beta reader’s comments for Highland Wolf so I can edit it and proof it one last time and turn it in. Then I’m off to write Red Wolf.

Back to proofing on Vampire Redemption. It’s the long-awaited sequel to Huntress for Hire.

Have a super fun day! I’m waiting for it to warm up!

I Want to Garden!

My daughter brought over a tomato plant she started from seed. It’s the biggest one she has and she doesn’t know how it got that big when all the rest are still just little. So I’m excited to make it grow really big!

I took my granddaughter to the store to get a little jacket because she keeps getting dropped off with no warm clothes and it’s cold in the mornings, oftentimes. Of course, we had to take home flowers. My favorite are purple, hers are pink. So you can tell which she picked. She also liked the red and yellow ones that looked like a darker pink.

Well, I’m still continuing with a different vegetable every day. I picked up some corn on the cob and fresh spinach for a couple of the days.

I’m off to do the despicable taxes. I keep telling myself: And this too shall pass. IF I keep working at it and GET IT DONE.

I want to write. And garden.

Oh, oh, oh, I got the copies of 10th Anniversary release of Legend of the White Wolf, releasing this month. The 10th anniversary copies have been delayed every release, so I’m excited to get them in early so I can take pictures and do promo.

Okay, back to the taxes. I swear every year I will do these earlier, but I must admit I believe this is the earliest I’ve ever done them.

Have a beautiful day!!!

Oriental Poppy?

This was a poppy of some sort, I believe, I captured on my walk.

I’m continuing with my different vegetable a day.

And I worked on tax stuff ALL day yesterday. Today little one is here, so I doubt I’ll get much done. I’ll try, but…

I did edit the first 3 chapters of Vampire Redemption last night also.

Whoops, little one is here! Off to feed her breakfast!

Have a super lovely day!

VegOut Day 3 & a Walk to Vote

It turned out to be a beautiful day and a 2 1/2 mile walk on the way to vote and back. I took pictures of flowers, squirrels, a great blue heron, green herons, snowy egrets and a great egret, and turtles.

Snowy Egret & Great Blue Heron

More pictures later!

I managed to edit 9 more chapters, but still have 5 chapters and an epilogue to go, and little one will be here today in a half hour. At 5 am, I was spreading weed and feed granules. Yes, in the dark. In the light rain. It’s supposed to pour rain in a couple of hours, so I figured it was time to do it before my granddaughter gets here. I was pulling tons of weeds yesterday. You’d think I’d finally get a handle on it. But nope! And all my lilies and daylilies are appearing out of the ground. Soon, they will flower.

Off to edit a little bit before it’s too late and I can’t!

Have a great one!

I Want to Garden

Image may contain: one or more people and food

My first day of the vegout: potato and tomatoes! I’m not sure what I’m going to have today, but I’ll figure out something. The chives are fresh from my garden. Every year since I planted them in my pots, they’ve survived outside during every kind of weather and I’ve had fresh cut chives for my potatoes daily. So now you know my secret. I nearly always have a potato.

When my granddaughter was telling my daughter what the vegetables were in a book, she came to the potato and said, “Grandma’s potato.” She loves them as much as I do. Kid after my own heart. Her daddy does too though! But her mom thought that was some funny.

It’s going to be 80 degrees today and I want to shop for plants!!! I want to fill in one of the flowerbeds to overflowing so I don’t have to weed so much. Right now, it’s a bed with a few daylillies, gerbera daisies, coneflowers, salvia, a crape myrtle, a rosebush, a ligustrum, and lots of grass and weeds. It’s not like I haven’t planted other things in there to try and fill it in. It’s just that a lot of it isn’t making it. I’ve had this problem before. I keep adding plants and pulling out plants that are dying or dead, and then I add different plants. Trial and error. So in this one spot I was having trouble with in Oklahoma, suddenly, every plant I planted there grew and grew and grew. Too much.

Laughing. So I figure the same thing will happen here. Eventually. I have another flowerbed like that. So I need to do the same with it.

Okay, well, the good news is I think I wrote the last scene for Highland Wolf. I won’t know until I start reading it over today from beginning to end. Which needs to be my focus instead of shopping for plants. *sigh* But it’s perfect planting weather!

Have a wonderful day doing whatever you need or want to do!!!

VegOut–30 days of Vegetables

Remember to eat your vegetables!

https://vegoutwithrfs.org/veggie-tracker/

Every year I do this. My daughter got me started some years ago since she’s a dietician at a school district. I always eat vegetables every day, but the challenge for me was to eat some new vegetables I don’t normally eat, or I rarely eat. I don’t usually think of beans as a vegetable, so I try to get a bowl of chili in during the month, and if my daughter and I go to this one special salad place, we can choose all kinds of vegetables to throw into a bowl an add it to a wrap, including beans and avocado, spinach, tomatoes, and more. Even having a pizza at one of the pizza places, I’ll add spinach, dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell peppers. So it’s not that hard, but I often forget to keep track of it.

I’m getting close to the end of the book, Highland Wolf. I’m nearly at 90K and I need to write at least one more scene today. Need to go to the grocery store and pick up some more fresh vegetables too.

Hope you have a healthy and fun day!
