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!

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!

A luncheon out...

I had a productive morning, thanks to the help of some wonderful friends.  Ariela helped me move more stuff out of the office and Allen & Tom disassembled my desk and moved it to my new home office.  It took us awhile to decide on the optimum configuration for the desks in my dining room - but it's there and now all I have to do is put everything away!  I'm hoping to get my internet and phone moved on Monday, but that remains to be seen, so my computer is still at the office.  Ariela is gearing up for the indoor yard sale on Saturday - and I am proud of myself for cleaning another eight bags of stuff out of my closet and apartment to sell.  Less is more, less is more...  We went to the Thai Lotus around the corner from my house for lunch.  I've not been a big fan of Thai food, but the guys seem to like it, so we went.  I had Pad Thai with chicken and Ariela had something called Lotus Chicken.  She liked it.  Al had some sort of curry and Tom stuck with his favorite Lotus rice dish.  It was actually quite good - different for a change.  I am so thankful for good friends who are willing to help me out with moving all this stuff.  Tom and Ariela both love to cook, so I foresee a Nicaraguan feast in our near future.  Ariela's husband makes a mean carne asada and she makes this classic Nicaraguan dish called gallo pinto that is really good.  Tom & Al are both from Wisconsin, and while Al is a meat and potatoes guy, Tom is willing to try other things.  Ariela is a food adventurer, too - Marco is stuck on Mexican food.  And well, I will eat just about anything.  As long as it doesn't look like the animal it once was.

  1. I had missionary friends from Thailand who used to visit me years ago....'Pad Thai' is the name of the restaurant we ate at on several occasions. Though my friends have moved away and we lost touch....the restaurant is still less than 2 miles from my house. Think I will have to have lunch there one day soon....
