Jill's Blog

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.

I Love Lucy

FullSizeRender 2

So Frat Boy and I were on our morning hike through the woods and I was moving along at a good clip because there’ve been a lot of bears and coyotes this year.

Well, that and the fact that I have consumed too many cookies lately and I’m not going to fit into my Big Girl clothes for a Chicago event in a few weeks. But I digress.

As we’re moving along, I’m happily wailing at the top of my lungs to Kelly Clarkson’s devastating Piece By Piece when Frat Boy goes off trail, stands at the bottom of a huge, old tree and barks. Huh. I go to stand next to him, tip my head back to peer two hundred and fifty feet up to the top of the tree, and then BAM. The next thing I know I’m sitting on my ass in the dirt, my head spinning.

A squirrel had beaned me with a pinecone.

Still dizzy, I call Alpha Man. “You’re not going to believe this.”

“Does it require stitches or a cast?”

To be fair, he has good reason to ask me such a question. “No.”

“The bank account thanks you.”

Honest to God, he’s so sweet and sensitive and loving it boggles the mind. Anyway, so now I have to add squirrels to my list of rabid creatures to avoid…

Original post:
I thought we came to the store for food only. As in from the basic food groups.

We did.

You just added four boxes of chocolate fudge cookies to the cart.

Chocolate is a food group.


Seriously. I read a study. It said women with all day access to chocolate were happier and easier to live with.

Yeah, I’m going to need that in writing.

(I’ll be drawing three names from today’s commenters who will win my next book SWEET LITTLE LIES!)
