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!

Putting away...

the last of the Christmas decorations got off to a rocky start!  The basket was top-heavy and slipped out of my hands and sent everything crashing to the floor.  As you can see, there were a lot of casualties: my Spode Christmas teacup & saucer, my ME mitten candle holders and one of my Longaberger Christmas votive holders.  I managed to find the antler for my reindeer photo holder, so it wasn't a total loss.  As I swept up the mess, I reminded myself that it's just stuff.  Stuff I really liked, but stuff nonetheless.
I managed to cram almost everything neatly into the hall closet - thank goodness for the two extra shelves we installed when I moved in!  I am still looking for a small dresser for my rubber stamps - when I find one, these rolling carts will move to the bedroom closet for clothes and stuff and my vacuum cleaner will finally have a home in the hall closet.  One day soon, I hope.
See - Christmas fit nicely on the top and there was plenty of room on the next shelf for Autumn and Spring.  I  moved office supplies to the third shelf, along with gift wrap and my stash of paper bags.
This bunch of stamps may look nice and neat, and the bins are all labeled, but it's murder to get to them.
We even hung up Aggie's leash and my umbrella - things are looking up on getting this post-holiday mess in order!
