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
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!

ME Monday...

And I've been putting out the fall decorations - even though it's only slightly cooler here.  This is my only ME Halloween decoration - but I've made up for less ME with more pumpkins and baskets.
I put my candy corn garter on this plant - and I have more decorations with the candy corn theme but alas, I need to buy some candy corn.  More on this later...
My little wooden cat came out to join his own pumpkin.

Karma Bear has his own little pumpkin, too.
Aren't these pumpkin baskets just the cutest thing - I've had them forever and I look forward to getting them out every year.  They lose the jack-o-lantern liners and lids in time for Thanksgiving.
We even have a Halloween kitty to keep us company.
Check out more ME Monday over at CherryChick!


  1. Ahh....very cute. Love the little Pumpkin baskets. I have that same little ME Halloween tin. Great minds think alike ;-)
    Thanks for joining us.

  2. Hi Dawn, the decorations are adorable!! I love the autumn weather. Finally I don't have to dehydrate on my way to the car.

    Have a great week.
    Yoli :)

  3. Great decorations! Glad to see you are getting into the spirit of FALL!!! Guess it doesn't really get too nippy down there in Florida!!That could be a good thing, you know!

  4. Now you're all dressed for Fall. I've already been through a large bag of candy corn. I'm NOT buying anymore!!!
