“The RoseBouquet”
Did You Give Thanks?

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada. However, as I’ve often done before, (and I know many other families do too), I made a point of celebrating it with a family supper on Sunday. The only family I have close by is my brother Tom, and the last few years I’ve been including a friend of […]


Heaven’s Gonna Shine!

A California friend sent me a link to acapella hymns on Youtube. I like all the songs, but this one was new to me, and I really like it best of all. Heaven’s Gonna Shine is very lively and enthusiastic! Heaven’s Gonna Shine! There is a list of 42 such songs all set with beautiful […]


My Saturday Plant Sale

Just for something different I’ll tell you about my Saturday plant sale. I even have some photos to show you.

The other smaller ones are crowded in their pots. So it occurred to me that if I got rid of my 20-something Christmas cactii, and […]


Cooking for Sunday Company

Do you hesitate to invite guests home with you from church on Sunday? A lot of folks go to eat out, but I think that’s too expensive. I wanted to invited a friend over for a birthday lunch this last weekend, and I had just recently tried a new crockpot recipe that I enjoyed. So […]

An All-Nighter

Yes, that’s what it took – an all-nighter from Sunday evening through to Monday morning, but I got the book polished and uploaded for the printing company just before 7 am. (I can’t recall when I last ever pulled a one-nighter!) Then I was hungry, so I had my breakfast muffin and went to bed. […]
