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!

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!

Gratitude journal...

One of the things I've been doing lately is writing in my gratitude journal.  Yes, every entry begins with I am thankful for and then whatever thing, however small or silly, I have to be thankful for that day.  Sometimes there's two or three things.  One day I was thankful for hot chocolate.  Another day is was Divine Comfort.  You get the picture.  Just the simple act of writing down the things I am grateful for has given me a new appreciation of life's small blessings.  I know I am guilty of spending way too much time worrying about the big picture and that gets in the way of enjoying the little things.  I intend to spend more of this new year appreciating the good things in my life and less time thinking about the things I can't change.
