About Me

My photo

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.

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!

So yesterday...

there's this big boom and suddenly I have no power, save the UPS running my computer.  And UPS - or uninterruptible power source - is a laugh; it runs just long enough for me to shut the computer down.  That was about 1:15 - right after my friend Jill left.  We were going to have lunch out (s signature summer salad from Crispers was calling my name!) but then I decided I hadn't ought to leave in case someone called for an appointment or came by.  Hmmph.  Shoulda gone to lunch - we were without power until about seven.  Since I have a VOIP phone - no phone, no computer, no nothing!  We must have had a squirrel with a death wish in the neighborhood because they had to replace the transformer just behind us.  Aggie had a good time watching the guys from FPL and I started re-reading Tess of the d'Urbervilles.  Okay, okay - we also had a nap.   I mean, who wouldn't?  I did fix dinner and do some meaningful work after we were electrified again, so it wasn't a totally unproductive day.  No technology is a good thing once in a while, don't you think?
