Alligator Or Lizard?
I didn’t know that I could scream until I saw this thing! I just finished vacuuming, and went to wash my hands in the restroom. When I re-entered the hallway I saw this creature running away from me! My first thought was It looked like a miniature alligator. I then proceeded to freak out. I wasn’t sure if it was an alligator, a lizard, or a snake at first. So I did what any brave person would. I grabbed the closest thing I could, a typical oven mitt, and when after it. The freaking thing chasing me, hissed, and even dared to charge me. When it did, I did the logial thing and I screened again! (LoL) But I eventually caught it! With closer observation, I realized it was a lizardyet it looked a lot like an alligator. After living in Florida and seeing aligatilors all over. it is obvious why the creature creeped me out. I being a writer an a sci fi fan wondered about genetic mutations for a split moment. Had aligators found a way to interbreed to survive the cold northwest?
If you Live in Florida or have ever been around wet lands/swamps you probably have a knowledge and possibly a fear of alligators too. (And for good reasons)
I quickly put The lizzard outside in the garden and then quickly returned to the house to look it up and figure out what it was. Guess what? It’s called a Sothern Alligator lizard…. Go figure…. They are mostly carnivorous , yet also vegetarian. they must have a hearty appetite! HERE’S some pictures of what I saw.
As you can guess, I didn’t wanna keep it. I’m grateful my three year old nephew was still fast asleep when this whole ordeal was over.
(This is the best image I could find that I can share. The one I saw had more green with blue coloring.)

Hello dear readers,
I finally got around to editing the links and my work page! Whew… It’s a pain to do, I’m not entirely happy with it. But my coding skills are limited… @.@ Anyways I added a few books I am working on. Normally I would do a full detailed progress report with lots of fun little details. But I am taking care of my nephew this week, he is currently occupying his self with the movie Frozen… His favorite character is Olaf of course… One of Mine too. 😛 Great Movie you should see it….
So I have to keep this short..
Some of my books are on hold, oddly enough all my fictions.. Due to a past virus I had my updated versions were deleted from my laptop. However I was smart and backed them up on my External Hard drive… The bad news is, since the move I can not find the power cord to it… I had kept them together but somehow the cord has vanished… I however was smart enough to back up my faith based books in 2 other places. So I am currently working on those when Time permits.. Those being: “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “Deeply Rooted In Him”, and “Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments”. The latter being a book I was able to compile really quickly… I was not gonna announce it, I was gonna leave it as a surprise. But since They are all coming along so nicely I couldn’t help but share my Joy. Although I seem to be busier then usual, and i have a small desk… I am doing a lot better with staying focused and writing more often then I used to.
I long so much to finish them as soon as possible, and I get so stressed when I want to write and can’t. However Life is precious and people are too. So I tend to choose experiences and people over time alone writing if presented the option. God’s timing is perfect so I try not to get mad at myself for not being done yet. I want them to be perfect… Well as perfect as I can be and I am looking for publishers on two of the three books too… Tho I will probably self publish also…. I want to follow God’s will.. I am really pleased with how “God Supplies and Miracles Happen” Turned out! You need adobe reader for the e-book.. I’m debating paying the money to get it on Amazon, Nook and ibooks…. What do you think? Should I? And I adore how the print book turned out… You should totally check that out. http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27
Well that is it for now…
Lots of Love, God Bless you today and always!
