Look Up, Look Down…

Look close, look far…it’s amazing what a different perspective you can have.

What we have: looking up through the shaded trees on the wetlands walk to see the brilliant sun; long distance shot at the arboretum, fall colors and flowers, shadows and light, and a path that leads you to the building; a grizzly bear close up, chomping on the fence to give you a bear hug; looking down–parakeets having a disagreement.

I didn’t have any time to work on My Highlander, well, let me amend that–I was taking care of grandbaby, took the dogs into be groomed, did a little shopping, bought a new strand of Christmas lights, well, two, and one half of one didn’t work, and worked on setting up the tree for pictures for Christmas. Oh, and picked up puppies!

But….I DID write 200 words. See? I wanted to, but didn’t think I’d have time. I didn’t feel like I should mention it because it was ONLY 200 words. But 200 words is…200 words. My incentive? Not only to keep at it, but I didn’t want to show one “dropped” day on writing every day for NaNoWriMo, even though I’ve made over 50K. Working on getting to 60K, hopefully, today. My daughter tells me we’ll shop for groceries today, tomorrow or Monday. Hmmm, that narrows it down. So I need to write in the meantime.

I cleaned house, but the puppies have already brought in a ton of more pine needles. I need to vacuum my yard.

Have a super weekend!!!!

Take a Walk with Me…

You never know what you might find!!!

Okay, finished NaNoWriMo–made over 50,000 words on My Highlander. But of course it’s not done, so off to write and write and write.

But if you want to take a walk with me, look at the wonders we might find!

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!!

Giraffes, Pumpkins, Parrots, Oh My!

And koi and flowers and bird in the sun and shade…

Went to the arboretum, wetlands, and the zoo to capture tons of pictures. 🙂

Have a wonderfully wild day!!

Hike to the Wetlands

wetlands-7-half-mile-900-004We went for a hike to the Wetlands, which for now should be called the dry lands. Nothing wet about them. It was a seven and a half mile walk, and it was hot, but we had fun.

We’re taking my son to the airport this afternoon, and while we’re continuing to have 80 degree weather, he’s headed for 45 for a high today. So he had a reprieve.

Thick fog this morning with a little cooler air, but the temperature will be high again today.

Enjoy the day!

A Matter of Perspective

Turtles and the wetlands

A bale of turtles covered in green algae which covered the water.

My son was frustrated because the camera was focusing on everything other than the turtles, but I thought it was fascinating.

And you see, that tells a story. You see it, don’t you? The jaguar creeping up to the grass, the reeds, then closer until he sees nothing but dinner waiting for him on the logs. Jaguars love turtles, even though these are more snack size.

Maybe he’ll wait and let them grow a bit bigger, and just chill  out for a bit.

Taking photos is a blast! Making up stories about them, or telling fun real stories is also just as much a part of the adventure. 🙂

Well, I had to review my synopsis for marketing for SEAL Wolf Diving for Trouble, and it’s already the most recently updated. Woohoo!

Back to reviewing Silver Wolf Christmas! There will be a final proof and it’s done! It will be out in October! 🙂

Have a super great day!!! 🙂 <3
