Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.
*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

My Fred made me a new table for Christmas...it's exactly what I wanted! (And needed!) It's so beautiful (I cried happy tears!) It fits me so perfectly and now I can be by the window and be near the woodstove, and watch the outdoor drama at the bird feeder...while writing or drawing...YAY!!!! (As you can see the little storage shelf already has my Peterson bird book.)
The kitties seem indifferent about their new toys...I caught the dog nibbling on one of them...he doesn't quite understand the catnip attraction, but because they go nuts over it, he's naturally curious...
The cats seem more enamored with the box full of leftover catnip stems...(I haven't had the heart to throw them out yet since they're having so much fun!)
This silly kitty is Crouching Tigger-Hidden Pooh (AKA Tiggy-Pooh)
