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 - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
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!

The deed is done...

I've reduced eleven years worth of beautiful, lovingly-preserved Mary Engelbreit Home Companion magazines to one flat box of inspirational clippings, recipes, illustrations and paper dolls.  It just about killed me to do it (I'm really not exaggerating) but it's time to let go and move on.  I did save the premiere issue.
For old times sake, you understand.

  4. Had to come over and see if it was true! (You had commented that you were doing it.) Having chest pains of anxiety, and yet admire your follow through.
    I can never find old ME's secondhand, thrift or freecycle, to use in any altered form. Can not bring myself to cut up the few I have. 11 years worth! Can not imagine.
