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.

Bears oh my…

So I was taking out the trash and came face to face with this.

We took one startled look at each other and decided … WTF!!! I turned tail and ran faster than I run when there are cookies on sale at Safeway, straight into the house and, because I love you, grabbed my camera and hit the deck.

The big bastard was still there, right there, eyeballing the trash I’d dropped. Except …

He wasn’t alone.

And then while I took a very big gulp and waved and said “hey guys, you take all the trash you want” … something happened. ANOTHER head popped up.

I offered them all of my cookies but they said no thanks, they were good with my trash, thank you very much. Apparently, we here at the Shalvis abode give very good trash.

I’m still trying to recover. It might be awhile …

Tuesday Tidbits

So it’s the Snowpocolypse up here in Tahoe. This is my bedroom window. From the second floor…

This Frat Boy and Cali playing in the snowed-in street like … well, dogs.

And this is the day’s walking view. Which I realize is gorgeous. But it’s also …

… butt ass cold. Just fyi. I’m ready for spring. Anyone else?

How a spider almost killed me

So because my clothes felt a little snugger than I like, I decided to exercise. I pulled down a yoga mat and got to work. Two minutes later I was huffing and puffing and flat on my back.

That’s when Alpha Man got off the couch. “Don’t move,” he said. “And close your eyes.”

So of course I leapt up and kept my eyes wide open. Which is how I saw the HUGE MASSIVE spider crawling off the mat.

The mat that I had just been on.

Alpha Man caught it so we don’t have to move. At least not yet… But I’m done exercising.
