I still have photos from the weekend to edit, but these pictures of a black cap chickadee that I took while down in the yard with it, only about 5-7 feet away, came out so cute I had to share them now :D

Pretty sure this is a Carolina Wren, over on a neighbor's deck.
Not the best of pics, but it was lucky I even managed this.





I haven't seen these around here before, funky :)

July 16 - July 22

New TV:

Elementary 5x14 - 5x24

I also re-watched some Supernatural episodes :)

Note:

Feeling pretty meh about the fifth season Elementary. It was...okay? I don't know. Lukewarm is my feeling really. I didn't hate it, and I didn't really care enough either.
Oh well.

Friday's Photos

It's been too hot this week. In the 90s and humid. Not a great mix. So my mood is starting to drop, a lot, especially when combined with other issues. So, I ended up taking a lot of pictures today because it tends to cheer me up, or at least calm me down a bit.

The squirrels were not loving the afternoon heat from what I could tell and I managed to snap several pics of a few lounging in the trees. I even stepped off of the porch and took some of the pics from the ground under the trees. I also snapped several pics of sparrows and one of a robin. Oh, also a dragonfly up at the top of the dead tree.

I think this is my favorite picture of the day:

Squirrel snug in a tree.

Birds and a Skunk

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.

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.
