Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.
Not a bear today, but…
May 17, 2013 | Filed under: Stuff
Drove up on our property and saw something moving beneath a tree. You’ll have to excuse me if I wondered WHAT NOW.
But it wasn’t a bear and her three babies.
It was a family of deer just hanging out beneath our tree having a little chat. But they weren’t much interested in continuing that lazy afternoon chat once they saw us.
I asked them very nicely to stick around and let me take pics…
They declined. How rude.
NOT your average Winnie The Pooh

This is my street. And less than an hour before this picture was taken, I’d walked it with Frat Boy at my heels. Okay, so Frat Boy wasn’t at my heels, he was bounding out in front, tongue lolling, looking for the next party, but I digress.
This is mama bear and her three babies, fresh from digging through our trash for their afternoon tea. This is the same bear who last year at this time growled at me for daring to take her picture.
This is one grumpy ass mama. She’s tired of her annoying children, she’s tired of doing all the cooking and cleaning, and she’s tired of not fitting into her jeans. There are some days (like this whole past weekend), where I can really relate …
Life with a cat

Do you have a cat? Does he/she run your life like Satan– er, Sadie, runs mine?
Best of – what’s in your car?
May 14, 2013 | Filed under: Stuff
My car is a mess. Truly. It’s because I share it with teenagers, dogs, and Alpha Man. If you opened the door right now, you’d find the usual assortment of gum wrappers and maybe last night’s Taco Bell wrappers.
You’d also find my slippers (I kicked them off while waiting for Youngest to get to the car, and then I left them there because . . . well, I don’t have a reason). You’d find at least five half drinken (I know that’s not a word, thank you very much) sports drinks because I can’t bring myself to throw them away and waste them. You’d find my wallet (actually I hope you’d find my wallet because I can’t). You’d find at least four books that I’m reading because I can’t stand to be without a book. You’d find a winter survival kit (but God help me if I really got stuck in the winter because I already ate all the food out of it while waiting on a basketball practice that ran long). You’d find at least two sports bags from Middle. You’d find Youngest’s hair brush and an assortment of hair ties. You’d find nothing of Oldest. She’s the anal one.
So … don’t leave me hanging out here alone. What would we find in your car?
Pretend Boyfriend Day

How about you? Who’s your pretend boyfriend at the moment? (I say at the moment because mine changes daily, but hey, maybe that’s just me. )

You know the drill. Name the excerpt. Bonus points for admitting if you’ve read it or not, though it won’t have any bearing on the winners, which are randomly drawn.
“So I guess that the next time I make a date with a concussed guy, I should pin a note to his collar so he doesn’t forget.”
“Good plan.” His hand was next to hers on the table. He let his thumb glide over her fingers, a small, almost casual touch that sent a shudder through her. “I’m sorry I forgot our date,” he said.
So … know the book?
