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 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!

Handmade this year...

and I've had such fun making little gifts and shopping online!  I've always loved crafting, and it has always meant so much to me when someone has taken the time to make me a gift.  Or even a card!  I used to make birthday and Christmas cards even before the current card-making craze and I was always thrilled to open a handmade or handstitched card.  My friend, Margaret, who lives in England is famous for her cross-stitched birthday and Christmas cards.  I've been doing my shopping - what little I do - on eBay and Etsy and I haven't bought anything that isn't either handmade or vintage.  Can you tell I also like getting old things as gifts, too?  I even did some wrapping this morning so I can drop a couple of presents in the mail in the morning.  
Santa would be so proud - I am early this year!
