Today is the first official day of Spring but here in Florida the humidity and temps are nearing summertime levels. Afternoon highs have been in the mid to upper 80s for a few weeks now. Last week, we were scolded by a flock of ducks, waddling and flicking their tails. Made me wonder if they were already nesting. The resident peacocks have spent the winter growing their tail feathers and now they're parading for the peahens. They remind me of showgirls who balance elaborate headresses on their noggins.
If I'm not writing YA, I'm reading, drawing or hanging out with my husband and Catahoula hound. And my days don't feel right if I don't have a dose of horses, cows or wildlife.
