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!

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 last long weekend...

for a while - I know, there's Presidents' Day - but tax season e-filing starts on Tuesday, so this is my last rest before a couple of really busy months.  Not that I am complaining - I am actually looking forward to the work.  I made some brownies this afternoon: one pan for John the maintenance guy who was nice enough to change my hall and bathroom light bulbs for me and bring me some touch-up paint and one pan for in case anyone stops by.  My hall light fixture had burned out several months ago but none of my friends could get the cover off to change the bulb!  The maintenance guy even had a hard time getting it apart - but it now has two new fluorescent bulbs in it, so I won't have to worry about that light for several years.  I had him put fluorescent bulbs in the bathroom, too.  Every little bit helps save on the electric bill!  I am happy to report that when they sold the apartment complex to the new company, they kept the maintenance guy who isn't afraid to get dirty and knows how to fix everything.  I hope Dapper Derek finds a job more suitable to his prissy, I-don't-want-to-muss-my-hair ways.  So what am I going to do for fun this weekend?  Well, besides eating a brownie (or two), I'm going to finish re-organizing the hall closet and get my tax season supplies ready.  Then I'm going to finish organizing the laundry closet and my craft fabric stash.  That should take me a while - but I'm going to try and cull out some more fabric to donate to Goodwill because I have more craft materials than one person could ever use in a lifetime.  Aggie will probably persuade me to take a nap (or two) and she has strongly hinted that I need to go to the grocery store and buy a) a bag of Newman's Own dog food, 2) some of those Good Life heart-shaped biscuits she likes and D) some sort of real meat.  She's not picky about what kind of meat - just some meat.  I think that Publix has Boar's Head roast beef on sale in the deli, so there may be a roast beef sandwich in our future.  I also expect that while the laundry cycles, spins and dries that I will be spending some quality time with my Kindle - so many free books, so little time!

  2. Sounds like you'll have a productive and fufilling weekend. Those brownies look incredible. I made your cinnamon chocolate bread pudding today. I sampled it earlier (before I took some to the neighbor's) and it's very good. I think Nanniepannie and I will have a bit of ice cream with it for dessert tonight. Have a good one!
    Best,
    Susan

  3. I love Publix and so wish we had one near us! My sister in law is in Florida (Clearwater) staying with her daughter for a few weeks. She gets to shop there! When we visited in March last year I fell in love with that store!! Next best is the HEB in Katy, Texas near Amber. Here...I shop Sam's, the $ store. Braum's and Kroger when I need a 'real' grocery store.
