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.

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!

How could I forget...

to write about where the bakers rack went? Remember when I bought that lovely client chair for in front of my desk - and it was way too big for the space?  The bakers rack had to go - so my client Jonathan, who always liked it, snapped it right up and gave it a new home at his house. 
And sweet man that he is, Ariela's husband Marco volunteered to put up the new shelves that were replacing the in-the-way baker's rack.
When you know how to do something, it doesn't take long.  Marco, after his morning trip to the dentist, gave up part of his day off to help me out.  I really appreciate him - and his handyman skills!
Aggie supervised the work and when he was finished,
it got her cairn seal of approval.
And here is the finished project: a place for part of my May basket collection and a much clearer walkway from the front door into the apartment.  Added bonus: the big client chair can stay!  Thanks again, Marco, for all of your help with yet another lovely improvement to my cozy, little home!


  1. How wonderful this looks!! And how nice to have a handy man for a friend!!
