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!

A lovely surprise...

I was dashing out the door to go to the bank this afternoon - as much as I dash - and the postman had just left a parcel for me.  I pushed it inside the door and decided to open it when I came back.  When I returned and unlocked the door, Peter was sitting on top of the box, as if to remind me to open it.  Cats!  It turned out to be a lovely birthday box from my friend, Erin in Arkansas.  I am so thrilled - I just have to share the contents.  There is a wonderful Gooseberry Patch cookbook: The Cozy Home Cookbook.  I love those - just reading the recipes is fun!  And I am all set for 2012 with a Mary Engelbreit page-a-day calendar.  Love it, love it, love it!  And inside a little brown bag from Branson (don't the best things come in brown paper?) were some postcards and other treasures from Erin's recent vacation - including a paw-shaped magnet that says Cairn Terriers Rule!  It looks just like Aggie - and I have affixed it to near the bottom of the refrigerator door so it's right by her food dish.  Aggie probably thinks that it's to remind Peter who's boss around here, but I am sure he could not care less.  And two bookmarks - which a book person can never have enough of - believe me.  Even the birthday card is cute - bunnies from Holly Pond Hill.
Thank you, Erin, for the sweet surprise!  You made my day!
