Ready to Fly

1 Nov

I’m afraid Fionn’s ear (the one he cut the tip off) is getting infected.  He’ll definitely be getting another round of antibiotics.  It would probably help if he quit acting like a buck in rut.  I seriously doubt that will happen until spring though.

I think I need a vacation or something.  It’s been just a chaotic pace with all kinds of craziness.   I kind of feel like I’m spinning my wheels and getting nowhere.  My motivation has been suffering.  I’ve spent the last week feeling inadequate and worthless.  I don’t know why I get into these funks occasionally, but it would be nice if I could shake it.  Must be the time of year.  Hopefully, this funky mood will change before spring.

Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo.  Not sure how it’s going to go this year.  That goes back to the crazy schedule and lack of motivation.  It also goes to the snarky nature of reviewers.  I can handle constructive criticism, but most comments I’m reading in reviews are just petty, which I don’t understand.

It looks like the popcorn we planted in June actually filled out, and I’m going to have  a good harvest.  Now I just need to pick it and find somewhere to store it.  That will probably end up being my dining room.

When I was walking back to the house after photographing the combine last weekend, I saw some milkweed pods ready to let their seeds fly in the wind.  I had to play with this one.  This is the version I shared on my author’s Facebook page.

I figure it’s always best to take a chance and risk being wrong rather than rotting in the confines of a small enclosed space.  Well, unless I’m in a funky mood.
