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.

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!

I'm nesting...

now that I have some free time - and getting ready to move even more stuff into my new place - and I have these two great silk plants from the office (that everyone has thought were real for the past three years) to find a spot for.  I had them in these hammered copper pots that I bought for cheap at Target way back when, but they never looked just right.  The other day I got a ceramic pot for the ficus at WalMart and it's perfect in the living room - after I moved the ginkgo tree to the lanai.  I have tried to find a suitable pot for the chinese evergreen, to no avail.  My shopping mantra is now: when looking for just the thing, go to Target.  I browsed the whole store, as I am wont to do, and in the garden shop (where else?) I found a lovely terra cotta pot for $14.00.  My only problem was getting it into the cart from the top shelf.  You can do it, I encouraged myself and prepared for a hernia.  And when I got a good hold on the thing, I realized that it wasn't pottery at all.  The thing sure had me fooled! 
And the best part is that when I got to the checkout, it was only $8.99!
