I Planned to do What???

Write!

But other things are filling up my day, so I’m still going to write, but I still have to do all these other things!

Not these things, though I have to take a break, right? The one of the cougar I took as he was walking toward me at the Cameron Park Zoo. I was glad there was glass between us. 🙂

I have to take Tanner in for shots, *sad face*, and after I drop Tanner off at home, I need to ship off books, book marks, some for men and women in uniform Overseas, and a bear for a literacy fundraiser.

Storm clouds are building. It’s mucho hot out already at 7:30 a.m.

When I get home for a second time, I have an interview with a representative of Monmouth University where I earned my MBA.

And then? I HAVE to write. I’m a 1,000 words behind from working on proofing Falcon Fae, so need 3,000 today.

Then my daughter said her friend has a newborn and asked if  I’d take newborn photos. At my house. That meant I had to stop writing last night and clean house. It’s not that bad, but I get behind on dusting and vacuuming.

Soooo, picture taking is later this afternoon.

When I made up my word count goal, I had nothing planned at all. 🙂

But, I’m determined to do it all.

Tomorrow, I take care of baby…so I’ve given myself two days off a week from word count goal–the two days I have her. Then it’s photo days, or teaching and playing days. Cuddling days. I still plan to write some after her momma picks her up though.

So I’m off to finish getting ready to take Tanner in to the vet. It’s already been a whirlwind morning, and now, it just continues–only I’m going to be running out in stormy weather. Hmmm, I might have to ship all that stuff on another day.

It’s pouring! Thundering like crazy.  We needed rain, but….

Have a wonderful day!!!

Love Storms!

Just not all the lightning that went with it. It’s pouring rain this morning again, which we so needed!

Let a little rain into your life!

Stormy Sunset

We had stormy skies on and off all day, but it didn’t storm. We’re supposed to have more tomorrow, but it’s been going that way, huge thunderheads, no storms, 80-90% of rain, no rain. So we shall see. 🙂

Have a lovely day!

Skies before the Storms Hit

 

Sunrise–beautiful storm clouds. And then the rain came down and the birds and the squirrels braved the weather to eat. Here’s a baby squirrel on the feeder as the rain is pouring.

With the upcoming release of SEAL Wolf Undercover, I wanted to share a new video trailer for the “first” in the SEAL Wolf Series. Actually, To Tempt the Wolf has the first mention of the SEAL wolves, but I need to make a new video for it too. 🙂

 

 

SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing
Book 1 in Terry Spear’s SEAL Wolf Series — A USA Today Bestseller!

Her instincts tell her he’s dangerous…
His powers of persuasion are impossible to resist…

While her overprotective brother’s away, Meara Greymere’s planning to play—and it wouldn’t hurt to find herself a mate in the process. The last thing she needs is one of his SEAL buddies spoiling her fun, even if the guy is the hottest one she’s ever seen.

Finn Emerson is a battle-hardened Navy SEAL and alpha wolf. He’s a little overqualified for baby-sitting, but feisty Meara is attracting trouble like a magnet.

As the only responsible alpha male in the vicinity, Finn is going to have to protect this intriguing woman from a horde of questionable men, and definitely from himself.

Night Skies

 

Tropical Storm Warning in effect.

Batten down the hatches. Hope we get some rain, no flooding, no high winds. Just some rain. And cooler temperatures. That’s it.

Running errands today because tomorrow, it’s supposed to be pouring. Maybe even this afternoon.

Stay safe if you’re in affected areas!!

Storms and Sunrise

Different times of the day during the storms yesterday. A hurricane sign went up on the highway. What???

We’re 70 miles inland from the Gulf, but one woman said when the last hurricane hit, they were without running water and electricity for 2 weeks.

It’s hurricane season.

Have a nice hurricane-free day.

Storms and More Storms

The morning after, the night before, and then more.

I love storms, as long as they don’t cause any damage. It settles the dust, feeds the thirsty plants, and cools things down! For a little while, we were even cooler than it was in Minnesota!

I love storms.

Falcon Fae is over halfway done! Yay! I’m not sure when it will be all the way done, but as soon as it is, I’ll be working on Billionaire Wolf Christmas, and then the next Highland book.

For my birthday, my daughter and SIL bought me Divinity Original Sin, so after word count, I played it for a while. Then did some more word count, then played the game again, and more word count. It’s very linear, so once I went down into the crypt, I was stuck. I love games where if you need to build up your strength some more, you can leave, find or pay for more armor, fight, and once you’re stronger, return to deal with the big boys. It wouldn’t let me do that. Ack. So now I’m stuck trying to kill something that can’t be killed.

It’s like creating stories, or doing photography work, or just doing anything, really. If one thing doesn’t work, you have to try something else.

With photography, I had my ISO set on auto. It was great because when I was trying to take pictures and figure out all the settings, I was getting white or black pictures. But with auto ISO, I was getting a lot of great pictures, but some were turning out really grainy. So time to put on my armor, and fight the big boys. And it’s working! Auto ISO forces the picture to brighten, when it’s not that bright out, and you lose the beauty of the low light pictures, such as the photo with the lights reflecting off the wet streets and the glow of the lights against the darkness. And it makes for really high ISO and then that makes for more graininess.

I’m brand new at working with adjusting everything at one time–instead of just aperture and shutter speed–I realize when I have a larger F-stop number, versus a lower number (aperture), I have to adjust shutter speed. Or I end up with black or white pictures. Which means constantly looking to see what I just took to see if I goofed, or got it right. Or in the ballpark. For now, I’m leaving my ISO at 100, to try and reduce the graininess of pictures.

But if I want to take pictures of fast moving birds, like hummingbirds, then the ISO has to go up! I love this article by Thomas Stirr. Now if I could take handheld photographs of hummingbirds that looked this outstanding? I would be thrilled.

Maybe one of these days I’ll defeat the unbeatable, and move onto the next challenge!

Have a great and successful day!
