There were a bunch of sparrows and a robin or two in the dead tree the other day, all at the same time. There were a lot more than I could get a pic of. It was like they were having a meeting. It didn't last very long, but it was a bit noisy.



Yesterday I was able to take a few not too blurry pics of a skunk in the yard around sundown. Picks of that and also a robin I took today under the cut... Read more... )

Writing and Whatnot...

I finished and posted my fic that I was writing for [community profile] fan_flashworks . It's not awesome, but it is done and I did enjoy writing it, mostly.  
I did not enjoy editing it though. I hate that part. A lot.
This is probably one of the longer fics I've written if not the longest. Not that I've written tons of fic or anything.

Okay I checked...this fic at 3,478 words is 1350 words longer than my previously longest posted work. Hmmm... wacky.

Very hot and humid today. Blah. I could really do with cooler days. I find it hard to motivate myself to do much of anything when it's like this. 

Oh, the latest issue of America (America Chavez solo comic from Marvel) has her teaming up with Kate Bishop (the other Hawkeye) for the issue (and next issue to it seems!) Very cool!!!

I finished the fic I've been working on for fan_flashworks. It was like pulling teeth at the end. Hot and humid doesn't make for the best writing days really. Especially without an air-conditioner. But I got it done. Now I have tomorrow and the early part of Thursday to make it suck less so I can post it in time.

It ended up being longer than I thought it would be. The first draft is about 3,500 words.

Has anyone tried using the book app Kobo? Am I right in thinking it restricts download of ebooks to the app/user account only? And you can't actually download the book to another computer or mobile phone without the Kobo app?

When people ask for time, it's always for time to say no. Yes has one more letter in it, but it doesn't take half as long to say.

Some photos of my desk area taken over the weekend. I set my desk back up, after haven taken it down a few weeks ago.
Now if only I had a good chair. My choices are one of those exercise balls, a very broken cheap office chair and a metal folding chair. At the moment I'm using the ball.


a mug of pens, a small stack of washi tape, a lamp and my Evil Queen funko pop and a blurry Castiel funko pop key chain hanging on the lamp.

In other news it's hot and humid today. I've made progress on the fic I'm working on despite the horrible heat, but I really need to get more words down on the page today. Hopefully it will cool down a bit soon.

I'm tired, so I'm just going to do a photo dump with these pics from yesterday...mostly squirrels trying to stay dry on a rainy day.

like these two on the neighbor's deck. People generally don't go out there at all, mostly they just seem to store junk there. I guess that makes it "safe" to the squirrels.

I made biscuits today. Usually I just make plain biscuits, but the husband picked up some stuff at the farmer's market yesterday so I ended up making cheese and scallion herb biscuits. They were quite good really and are all gone now. The scallions we have are big and fresh and gorgeous from the farmer's market. So much green!!! I used a basic biscuit recipe and then just added stuff.


I also have a few bird and porch pics under the cut from late yesterday afternoon...Read more... )

I have errands today and the weather is looking like rain. I probably won't take any pics today. I want to get some quality reading time in too. But we'll see. I'm having a high anxiety day since I woke up, and taking pics relaxes me, so maybe I'll make the time if the weather isn't too wet.
