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.

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!

New old dresser...

You’d think all I do is look on craigslist for used furniture to feather my nest.  Well, I admit I do check the ads every day, but it’s mainly for the entertainment value of weird stuff and misspelled ad headlines.  But occasionally…  Remember my closet with the rubber stamps in the rolling carts?  Well, it might have looked nice and organized, but getting the carts in and out of the closet and finding anything was not as convenient as I had imagined it would be when I came up with that particular plan.  So – guess what I found on craigslist for a mere $75?  This lovely antique oak dresser which fits perfectly in the space between the sofa and my craft desk – and it provides a much better place for my rubber stamps.  Easier to access, easier to find what I’m planning to use – what more could I ask for?  And it’s pretty too!  Al & Tom picked it up for me – furniture is, after all, their business and delivered it a few days ago.  Tom even tightened up the drawers and polished it up for me.  I have since filled it to the brim with stamps and other tools – and sorted out some more stamps that I don’t want for donation to someone who might – and I am loving it!  I used little plastic trays in the drawers to separate the stamps by category and amazingly, everything fit.
And – the bonus here – it’s the perfect spot for my dragonfly lamp, some framed photos, my small Harmony Kingdom box collection and my white hyacinth.  I love it when a plan (and a room) comes together!
