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!

Julie & Julia...

I finally watched the movie.  And I felt the same way I did about the book: leave out the annoying parts about the self-absorbed, not-very-nice Julie Powell and give us a biopic about the wonderful, delightful and ever-interesting Julia Child.  Meryl Streep was fantastic and I absolutely adore Stanley Tucci.  They have a great chemistry (remember The Devil Wears Prada?) and I could watch both of them for hours.  Of course, it didn't make me want to bone a duck, but I am thinking about making a batch of potato leek soup...

  1. I haven't seen the movie but I agree about the chemistry with in The Devil Wears Prada. Hopefully I get some quiet time soon so I can watch it. I cook everyday and my recipes are getting predictable. I really should try something new.

    Hope you have a good week!

  2. I'm in the middle of this book right now, Dawn! Then I will allow myself to see the movie as well.
