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 - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
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!

Decisions, decisions...

DAWN:  Aggie, could you please move?  Mom needs to vacuum the floor.
AGGIE:  Zzzzzzzzz.  Snort...   Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
DAWN: Aggie.  Move your butt.
AGGIE:  ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz.
PETER:  Shall I wake her, Mom?  Oh please, oh please!!!
DAWN:  At your own risk, buddy.

Peter and I are both still undecided.
He thinks that the old adage to let sleeping dogs lie 
might be the best course of action.
I, on the other hand, will live to vacuum another day.


  1. That's too funny! Was the vacuum cleaner on?

  2. There's always tomorrow! However....I am heading out to the den to vacuum in there now. We had a fire in the fireplace this morning and LD did not realize the damper was closed! Who KNEW it would turn COLD in MARCH in TEXAS?? It's pretty dusty in there now......

  3. I'm always looking for an excuse not to vacuum? Do you lend out Aggie?
