Thankfully

I woke up yesterday to sunshine and Roscoe cuddled up against me. It was the rare and delightful teddy bear cuddle, too, where he has his back to my chest and my arm is around him. For a while, I just lay there enjoying the purring and the fact that it was light enough to […]

Days of Future Passed

Long ago and far away I have been keeping in better touch with my former neighbor Patrisha since she lost her beloved dog Hamish, so I have recently learned more news about my old neighborhood. As you may remember, I used to live in the woodworking shop of a Victorian coffin factory. My front door […]

Retailing

It’s kind of surprising that I have gotten to this advanced age without having worked retail before. Or waitressed, for that matter. Nearly everyone I know has done either or both of these during their misspent youth. Looking back, I’m not completely sure how I escaped it, though I’m happy for those long ago diners’ […]

Miscellaneous

Things have been busy in Suzy-land since I last checked in with you, faithful readers. My blog was hacked, though I can’t imagine why, unless there’s a severe trivia shortage somewhere. The wonderful Candi of the appropriately named No Hassle Hosting solved the problem for me, restored everything, and implored me to change my password, […]

M-O-N-E-Y

Thursday kicked off with a visit from the money fairy while I was asleep. The money fairy really doesn’t visit me often enough these days. I actually thought she had lost my address a long time ago. I woke up to discover a pile of cash on top of my also sleeping computer, with a […]
