Sunrise

The sun is just about to peek over the eastern hills, beyond the draw. I love this time of the morning, when things are still quiet. We’ve got snow, with more predicted, and I imagine the horses are starting to stir around out in the barn, looking for breakfast. Sadie is snoring on her pink bed under my printer table, and Bernice is cozied up on my bed. The coffee’s on, and I’ve done my journaling.

Life is good.

I wrote the first chapter of “Logan’s Return” yesterday–and I love it. It’s going to be great, spending time with the Creeds. Hunks, every one of them, but hunks with hearts. I always fall hard for my heroes, and Logan, I can tell, will be no exception.

I’ve got some craft projects going–right now, I’m doing “Melt Art”. I scanned a picture of the Cartwrights–the original inspiration for my penchant for cowboy brothers :)–and printed it out on t-shirt paper. Later, when I’ve finished my writing for the day, I’ll make a pin by pouring the clear acrylic/wax stuff over the image. It hardens in about a minute, then you peel the back off, and you’ve got a clear transfer. T-shirt paper works better than regular ink jet–much easier to remove the back. I use a cookie cutter greased with mineral oil to shape the thing. It’s messy work, as you can imagine, but it’s satisfying, too. I get lots of good ideas when I’m playing with my toys–and you know what happens when I get a good idea!

Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day, as the cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months.
