Jill and the monkey

Jill 111516
Jill has a new toy, a monkey or maybe it's supposed to be a gorilla I don't know. Tonight I found her with the monkey, a teddy, and a puppy in my bed. She likes to lay up there and watch me at my desk. Actually, she goes where I do, carting her latest 'favorite' baby. Tonight it was the monkey. I often find them in my bed. I don't mind one or two, but there is a limit you know. She couldn't believe I tossed all three of them on HER bed when she decided to go to sleep. The look said, "Of all the nerve!" I just have to love my Jill, even if she tears the bed apart making a nest for her toys and leaves them there at bedtime.

I have been reading, get this - Western Romance! I have read nearly all of the free Smashwords selection under that heading. It's fun to fantasize and want a "Do-over" I think I would make a successful mail order bride, LOL. I have finished most of the free Regency books, not so sure about wanting to live back then - I don't believe I could be that prim and proper. Most modern day romance isn't all that great unless the characters travel or are out of the city. I am not all that thrilled with modern technology or the crowds. Not much to fantasize about ... I did notice a lot of things about the authors, a lot of them make their main characters writers and they are successful. Also some are rich and they spend their money. They have a fantasy all their own, LOL! Nothing wrong with that, it just doesn't sound realistic enough to be caught up in the story.

Last bit of news and I hope you can take the shock - I have been getting food catalogs in the mail and I am considering ordering some for Christmas. This old Bah Humbug can hardly believe it herself. The urge may only last as long as long as I don't watch any of those dad-gummed commercials on TV.

New day starting, have a good one!

    1. Thanks, T. I think we all know someone who would fit in better during the days of the pioneers.

  2. Oh Jill, Gracie and you would get along just fine. It's not enough that Gracie hogs the bed... but Lambie sleeps with us every single night as well. Glad you are enjoying your reading, Sharon. I am trying to finish a trilogy of beach books and am on the last one. I decided to download the audible app and 'listen' to the last part of the last book since my eyes tire so easily. haha! Needless to say I fall asleep. Last night I was like... wait... when did Carson have a miscarriage??? and... why are Harpers sisters angry with her because her rich mother is willing her money to buy Sea Breeze? Then I thought.. well, I will just hear it out (last chapter) and go back and read to find out when all that happened. Guess who couldn't stay away for one lousy chapter?? ugh. I am hopeless.

    1. Tried the audible books - too slow and yes they are sleep inducing.

  3. Jill is so cute. Of course she wants to sleep with her cuddly toys. I had to teach Faith to not bring any toys in the bedroom because she likes the hard ones, bones and such, and there are mirrors on the closet doors. She is so cute, she brings them to the door and drops them there. For me to stumble on at night if I have to get up.

    1. Yep, I think dogs want to share their toys the only way they can. Bless 'em, trip us all up, ha ha.
