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.

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!

It's our twelfth Aggiversary...

Aggie came home to live with us on December 5, 1998 when she was about nine weeks old.  She was the feistiest puppy I ever met!
She went from little puppy to chunky monkey in no time!
She is still pretty feisty and full of herself at the ripe old age of twelve - only now I don't know whether to call her a chunky monkey or a cheeky monkey.  Or a chunky cheeky monkey.  She's still the very best Christmas present anyone ever gave me!


  1. Awww, I'm so glad you have had each other for all these years. Love that -Happy Aggiversary! classic.
