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.

Monday Musings

Let me set the scene. We had sand delivered. Expensive sand for concrete. We told Frat Boy to stay out of the expensive sand.

Here’s our ensuing conversation:

I told you to stay out of the sand.

Frat Boy:
I totally did.

You have sand all over your face.

Frat Boy:
Dude, that’s powdered sugar. I ate your donuts.

I can see that it’s sand.

Frat Boy:
Oh, wait. You said stay OUT of the sand? Gotcha. Next time I’ll write that down.

He said She said…

There is a long standing argument in my house about what constitutes a clean house. It’s a he said/she said sort of thing.

– he can walk from the sink to the shower without tripping over dirty clothes and towels

I say the house is clean if:

Happy Hump Day


Make it a good one… Oh and before you go, who’s watching the Olympics and what sport? I think next week’s Happy Hump Day should be athlete oriented and I’m taking requests. B-)

So there was an incident. Frat Boy did something he shouldn’t have. He ate an entire bag of chips that he had to get into the cabinet to get at.

He is deeply sorry. Sorry he was caught. Caption this pic. Three random winners will get a copy of THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE!

Monday Musings

It’s looming over my head and yet my camera woke me up the other morning, calling my name.

“Psst!” my camera said. “Forgetaboutwork … I’m more fun.”

And damn if my camera wasn’t right. It was WAAAAAY more fun to walk along the Truckee River than work. And I only had to climb two fences and pass a DO NOT TRESPASS sign …

I cut my calf. Never let it be said that I don’t suffer for my art. At the time though, mostly I was worried about the scent of my blood drawing bears and coyotes oh my.

Probably I should have been more worried about where I parked, since I got a ticket.

If Alpha Man is reading this, I’m just kiddin’. Of course I wasn’t stupid enough to park in the same place I parked last time. And I most definitely wasn’t stupid enough to get yet another ticket. Probably.

And if my editor is reading this, this whole blog is a figment of your imagination because I am writing. Writing like a dog. I swear it.

On the two tickets I didn’t get …
