  • Finally Getting Published!

    So it’s been a while since I’ve posted – over a year. A lot has happened since then, yet a lot hasn’t happened as well.

  • Gazing Over My Cuppa Tea

    A few months ago I got a message saying, “Tiddles and Shindig need you in May!” So here I am revisiting my first housesit. Greetings from Great Malvern, England. After a wonderful but uncharacteristically chilly and rainy stay in Germany, I told the homeowners that I was looking forward to going to England for some warmth and sunshine. I said…
