Progress on new cowboy novella
I’ve been lazy about posting to my blog. Must be because summer is sneaking up on me. We’ve had so much rain lately it’s been a little hard to tell. I finally got fed up yesterday and took the 4-year-old out to the pool to swim in the rain.
She threw a fit because she didn’t want to get her hair wet. Did I mention she’s blonde too?
Then of course, she had to walk all around the pool with me to check for critters. Every leaf was a toad or a snake. Guess I shouldn’t have rhapsodized about the baby cottonmouth or the worm snake I fished from the water this past week.
But she’s home with mom today, so I entered the pool in peace and quiet. Yeah, it was sprinkling again before I got out, but the water (78 degrees) was warmer than the outside air (73 degrees), so I didn’t care.
Fished out a dead shrew—I should have put it in a bucket to horrify the little monster the next time she stays over.
