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’s Musings

I love holiday movies, always have. From A Christmas Carol to A Charlie Brown Christmas, I’ve seen them all, melted over them all, and probably cried buckets over them all as well. Another favorite is The Holiday with Jude Law, which I just rewatched. I actually wanted to to the theater and see Fantatic Beasts but it was sold out. I was in the mood for Hogwarts and adventure, not a sappy romance (funny considering I write them…)

But there was nothing sappy about it at all. It was a wonderful, deep, warm, funny, sexy romance. In fact, there were two romances. And I melted. And yes, I also cried. In a very good way.

How about you? Do you have a favorite holiday movie? Or how about a holiday book? Comment here today and I’ll be drawing names. Three of you will win my upcoming ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE.

Thursday Tidbits

My yesterday:

1. Got out of bed and stepped in warm cat yak.
2. Ate the last Alpha Man’s hidden Halloween candy and then denied it.
3. Hit the New York Times bestseller list at #6 with ONE SNOWY NIGHT!!!
4. Cried over the commercial where the woman takes down her holiday lights and puts them up for an elderly, lonely neighbor.
5. Burned water making tea.
6. Finished LOST AND FOUND SISTERS, a bigger book than I usually write and can’t for you all to read.

Happy Hump Day

Thought maybe you could use some melting too. Happy Happy Hump Day!

Our poor baby

So Cali went in to get spade and the poor baby.


She’s feeling both high and drunk, so much so that she can’t hold up her own head. But no worries, Dobby, aka DumbAss (I PROMISE she’s earned the nickname!!!!!) is on the case.


She’s a self appointed babysitter and is doing a great job.


Just another Tuesday in the Shalvis household…

Our guest…

He’s very shy, our porcupine. He’s living in our front yard. He says no thanks to pictures though.

Especially face shots. However, he likes to show his very pretty hind quarters.

Thanks to Alpha Man for risking life and limb to get these pics. Thanks to the cat for keeping the dogs occupied. Thanks to Special Edition and Youngest for not taking their eyes off the TV when I said THERE’S A PORCUPINE! I bet if I’d said THERE’S A CUTE GUY, they’d have come running…

Only me…

So I drove to the store and when I got out, I grabbed my car remote thingie without looking, and because I was tangled up in my bag and some other stuff, I hit the door lock on the actual door rather than use the remote, and then shut the door. A little while later I came out of store and tried to hunt down the car remote thingie in my bag but it wasn’t there. I’d grabbed the little garage remote thingie instead!

Yes, seriously.

I bet Toyota never thought of this crazy way to lock yourself out of your car when they came up with the remote… sigh. Only me.

Ever lock yourself out of anything? Please tell me yes…
