About Me

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!

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!

Old(er) people...

Gotta love 'em.  One of my oldest clients was just here, along with his new wife, and the entire time she was here, she called me Sandy.  Now how did she get Sandy out of Dawn?  She was a little hard of hearing, so I could see how she might misunderstand and think I said Donna, but Sandy?  (I once knew a lady, years ago in a former life, who thought my name was Doris.  That is ten times worse!)  Oh well, I gave up on correcting her and just smiled at my client, her lovely and kind husband -  who didn't want to correct her either.  Isn't love grand?


  1. that is so sweet. I guess I'll answer to anything too Dawn. I worked with a lady at the Hillsborough County Zoning dept. a long time ago. She called me Joey. She thought that was my name. I thought it was her accent, I guess it was mine that made her think I was saying Joey. Ha.
    Anyway, we got it figured out eventually.
    I've been getting comment error messages on some blogs when I try and comment. Hope this comes thru. I've enjoyed reading your previous post about the books you're enjoying.
