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 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!

Ray Isuzu and I...

just got back from a little ride and some errands.  One of the errands was to fill Ray's twelve-gallon tank with gasoline.  I shouldn't complain, because I haven't treated Ray to a fill-up in over a month - but it cost me $47!  The poor guy was on E, but he started right up and off we went to the gas station.  Obviously, Ray and I don't get out much - but it looks like we'll be getting out even less if the price of gas goes up any more!  We made a quick pit stop at the bank for an ATM deposit and then got a chicken sandwich for lunch.  We were planning to stop at Publix for some essentials and then the sky clouded up and by the time we got back to our neighborhood Publix store, the sky was black as night off to the north.  I love a good rainstorm as much as the next person, and Ray was in dire need of a good rinse, but we both prefer to enjoy the rain from the comforts of home.  So here we are, snug as bugs in a rug.  Aggie and Peter are happy - they are not big storm fans.  Guess this is a good afternoon to get lost in a book. 
Mr. Monk & The Two Assistants awaits...

  1. I am so sorry you did not get to Publix! I know how you love that place! I filled up one day this week and it was $55.66! My son lives in California and he is paying $4.55 a gallon.
    Enjoy your book. We are off to the neighborhood school to vote. Then maybe a nap before church. I am scheduled to be at a 'Relay for Life' event from 9:00- midnite. Thought a nap now may help! It is COLD here in DFW area today! Texas weather!!
    PS....I am glad to see your postings again!
