Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

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

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!

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!

Lost in translation...

Don't you love the funny translations of our colloquialisms from people whose first language is not necessarily English?  My friend Long, who is Vietnamese, wasn't feeling well this week.  He just came down to see me and I asked how he was feeling.  "Better," he said.  "I stay home yesterday and took too much medicine and it make me itchy (twirling his finger around like he was dizzy).  Then I try to eat something and my stomach feel bad and I throw out."  You know, that's really a better saying than throw up.  Because we don't actually throw up, we throw out.  Just thought I'd mention that.

  1. I agree-it really does make more sense to say throw out!

    Best wishes, Natasha.
