Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Getting into the spirit of the season...

finally!  This morning I've been making up teacup gifts with herbal tea bags and dark chocolate bars.  I had an overabundance of teacups and saucers from my storage unit and decided that they would make great little Christmas gifts.  All they needed was clear wrap and some pretty holiday ribbons.  My retired friend Richard, who is as short on holiday funds as I am, had several ladies on his list as did I, so working together, we have made a bunch of holiday packages for a very reasonable price.  I have six left, so I'm wrapping them up and putting them on the Busy Bee Cards (& Gifts!) shelf in the front window.  You'll never know who might need a last minute gift!

And my good news for Monday is that I've gotten the larger apartment and I can move in on January 16; now all I have to do is line up some muscle to help me.  I'm excited because it's in a much better location as far as parking and it's solved a big problem for when my office lease is up in July.  My office landlord has been very understanding about the fact that I do not have my husband to subsidize my rent anymore - if only Florida Power & Light were so kind.  Ha!  Thank heaven (and the IRS) tax season is just around the corner.
