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...
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!

Aggie's Porch...

Remember our sad little screened porch?
Well, it's now Aggie-ready!  We keep Aggie's puppy potty out there, but I was always so afraid she'd see what she thought was an intruder in her domain and jump through the screen.  She's fierce that way!
It was a little flimsy - and the wind kept blowing my tree over.
Hence, the makeshift ribbon tie-up!
Aggie's friends (and mine), Tom & Al designed a dog-proof enclosure for Aggie - and a decorative plant shelf for her mom.
Al is the installation assistant today while Tom puts everything together.
Aggie is supervising.
Al is holding the shelf in place while Tom adjusts the supports.
Tom is getting the corner section just right.
Aggie checks out the final product.  It would appear that she approves.
Since the lawn guys and their blowers are the bane of my very existence, I washed the cushion covers and replaced the old cushions with new ones.  The seat cushion is a little plumper than the old one - and more comfortable, too.
I added some plants to the shelf - just a few small ones because I didn't want to block our nice view.
Much better!
Aggie checks out her fresh puppy potty.  Of course,
she still won't come outside alone!
The new hummingbird rug goes perfectly with the cushion colors -
and it was cheap!
Our lizard visitor, although I cannot figure out how he got in, seems to approve of the new plant shelf.
We love it!  Thank you, Tom & Al for making Aggie's screen porch just perfect!
