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


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!

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!

And I'm back...

We started our staycation in Jackson, Mississippi, home to the incomparable Eudora Welty, by reading The Help, by Kathryn Stockett.  It was excellent - well worth the time.  After a brief nap, we made our way back east to Washington, DC when we watched National Treasure.  We made a brief stop in Philadelphia and ended up in NYC, under the Trinity Church on Wall Street.  But then, you've probably seen the movie.  
Next, we winged it to Paris with Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, that wonderful, brooding Irishman Gabriel Byrne and that Leo kid while we watched The Man in the Iron Mask.  Okay, so the Eiffel Tower wasn't there in 1662, but I doubt that the real Aramis was as charismatic as that Jeremy Irons.  And then there's Gabriel Byrne...  I think that this is the only movie I've ever seen where John Malkovich isn't crazy. 
Still not a big fan of that Leo kid.
It was fun - brief, but stress-free.  I was at the office by 7:45 am on Sunday so that I could meet the guy who was installing my replacement AC unit - but he was sick and couldn't come until this afternoon.  Petey and I had a nice visit and I did some work.  When it got too hot to stay here any longer, I took my Netflix fix of Ghost Ship (yes - another Gabriel Byrne movie!) and went home to another quiet afternoon for a brief nap and no phone calls!

I am now happy to report that I have air conditioning at the office again and it is so nice and cool in here.  Just in time to go home!
