Weekend Roundup

First, for all of you hit by the cold miserable storm–I hope you stayed warm and safe. It’s been cold and rainy here in So. Cal., but much of the U.S. was slammed hard to huge storms.

My weekend was a blur. I sent my book to my editor on Saturday–YAY!! To celebrate Wizard and I went shopping for toys for CHiPs for Kids.  We had a blast! We set a budget then had the best time picking out toys–definitely the highlight of our weekend.  We’re taking those to a donation center tonight.  We also got a tree, but haven’t decorated it yet.  Still, it’s progress. This weekend was the start on the nonstop running around and craziness.  I don’t think I’ll do a lot of baking this year, there’s just no time.

I’m doing some plotting on more books.




Oh before I forget, PLAY HARD is free on Amazon Kindle /  iBooks iTunes / and Kobo






So how was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

Wow, really? Friday already? I’m had my head down working and have no idea how Friday got here.  Last time I checked it was Tuesday. The book just needs one more straight edit and off to the editor it goes.

So who’s getting ready for Christmas? I haven’t even started. If it’s not raining this weekend we might get out tree. I’m still trying to wrap my head about it being December.

What are you all doing this weekend?

Wednesday Worthy Goes To The Dogs

I lost the picture I originally intended to post (don’t ask-yesterday was just one of those days–I can’t find that sucker anywhere). So instead, I’m going to post this guy:

Corky's officioal photo

This is CPA Boy and Special K’s new dog, Corky.  To my great sadness, I still haven’t gone out and met him in person. I hear he’s super sweet, possibly not the smartest dog ever, but calm and sweet.  Meeting him will be my reward once I turn in this book and get everything else on my desk done.

So…what do you think, is Corky Worthy? By the way, this is his “official” photo sent to my by Special K. She cracks me up, she actually called it his official photo.

Weekend Roundup!

I’ve missed you all! I’ve been working at a crazy pace. I have the book completely drafted, now I’m going through to fix and clean it up for my editor to read.  I’m too close to even guess if the book is good, bad or blah. Let’s all cross our fingers!

Thanksgiving here was awesome. I got up around five thirty to get a couple hours of work in then jumped right into T-Day work.  Everything turned out great. The only downside was Middle Son, and BLB couldn’t be here as they work retail.  We really missed them and Bailey Dog.  Otherwise, it was great! Everyone, including Biker Witch, really pitched in to help which makes it even more fun. All the wine didn’t hurt either :-)

So my tall. hot blonde niece who is in her mid twenties comes in the kitchen and say, “Aunt Jennifer can I have some wine? Please?”

I look at her and she’s just too gorgeous. Seriously. So I say, “Ask me like a blonde.”

She goes all valley girl on me and says “Please????”  I cracked up. I love my family. My nieces are so many flavors of awesomesauce I adore them. They never even blink when I do this stuff to them. They just play along.

I gave her the wine ;-) (She’s old enough and wasn’t driving)

Around all my writing, Wizard and I found time to watch a great movie, THE VOW with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams.  We just randomly chose this movie and really liked it.  Then Saturday night Wizard and I went out to dinner and had a blast together.  Later that night, we were watching TV when Wizard turns to me and says, “We still have fun when it’s just the two of us. I love that.”

And that why, even though he might have some control issues (we bickered for three days over HOW to thaw a turkey.  I won because I’m right and Wizard pouted), he’s a keeper.

So how was your Thanksgiving? And Weekend?
