While I Should Have Been Writing-Again

I always get motivated by spending time outside, so it isn't really wasted time, even when I should have been writing. I saw some beautiful moss on a hike and I got to see the start of day two of a 90 mile canoe race through the Adirondacks.

This guy was fat and longer than my pointer finger. This North American Millipede is common in the eastern US, but it was the first I've ever seen.

While I Should've Been Writing

I get lots of ideas "when I should've been writing", so I let me guilt go...most of the time. I spotted this gorgeous bobcat while out for a walk.

About now, my thoughts start turning to summer. But first in the Adirondacks, there's mud season.

I Can't Wait!!
