About Me

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.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
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!

Long movies & books...

I don't know what it is with me: I start out every new year reading long books and watching long movies.  Foolish consistency, I suppose, is the hobgoblin of my little mind.  Part of the ritual is getting myself inspired to write.  GWTW always spurs me on toward greatness, which I somehow always fail to reach, but I am spurred on nonetheless.    The Stand reminds me that a) long books are actually published, 2) long books get made into movies (or a TV mini-series as it were) and d) to quote TS Eliot, "this is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper."  Oh Lord, I am waxing philosophical and quoting The Hollow Men.  I need to do something to get out of this blue funk!

  1. I think a steaming hot bowl of split pea soup and a walnut brownie would do the trick for me!!

    Wish I had thought to start something in the crock pot this morning. Now I have to come up with something for supper when I really just want to stamp!!
