Brings-flowers weather

You guessed it–cloudy and wet this morning.  :)  I’m keeping in mind that this will cause the flowers to spring up sooner.  :)

Did you catch the new behind-the-scenes video, focusing on Slade Barlow, the hero of “Big Sky Country”?    The book will be out SOON–the last Tuesday in May.  What fun!   The show is on Harlequin’s Facebook page, and probably on mine, and there was a link in yesterday’s blog.

Another chapter drafted yesterday–I seem to be on a roll here.  I hope to finish next Wednesday and take the weekend off, too–do some art, possibly visit Costco, figure out my new camera.  :)  Oh, yes, and plant some zinnia seeds indoors, to be set out when the weather is a little better.

I have dahlias (I think) coming up in my planters on the deck, but as I recall, they could be the tiger lilies from last year.  :)  OK, God, surprise me!

In other news, I’m officially at “war” with Woodie Woodpecker.  He’s pecking holes in the walls of my house!  I scare him away ten times a day–wouldn’t actually hurt him, which is why I put the word WAR in quotations–by banging on the door frame and sometimes yelling.  This scares Bernice and the kitties, though, so I have to make it up to them after every shouting match with Woodie.

Yeesh.  That’s life in the country for you.

And that’s the news from my kitchen table.  See you tomorrow.

    I’ve been told that woodpeckers get a little crazy this time of year. We once had one attack a vent pipe on our roof several times a day and he kept at it for about three weeks. Very disconcerting! And he paid no attention at all to my yelling. :)

    Hope this one doesn’t seriously damage your siding!!

    I am sorry to say that the visual of you banging on your wall to scare off a woodpecker makes me laugh out loud!!! Maybe you should let Bernice give him what for!!
