Discovering My Errors

This past week has been about discovering my errors. But I’m glad for that! I’d rather discover them now and have a chance to fix them before the books are printed for the public. Last week Monday, Laureen, one woman who used to work in our mission for 20 years (she has now been with […]


A Better Office Chair

I need a better office chair. I don’t really have time to go shopping around for one, but this was a bothersome problem. The larger chair I’ve had for some 6-8 years, became uncomfortable, tilts to the left, and then one day a bolt started to stick up and press into my left thigh. Well, […]


The Making of Books

I thought I might show you my process for the making of books. (You know of course, that in reading my RoseBouquet you are stuck with whatever experiences I’m having). I’m sorry if you find this boring; I happen to enjoy the making of books. But I confess I got very exhausted last week in […]

Learn Self-Publishing by Doing

It is always fun to visualize one’s self as an author of a finished book. However, I recommend you learn self-publishing by doing it. Last night, while collating, I recalled that years ago, when I moved home to care for my parents, I had vivid dreams of writing books. Somehow I knew that to become […]


A Picnic Supper with Tom

Yesterday was a provincial holiday here; I decided on a picnic supper with Tom, my brother. We had not eaten outside yet so far this summer, and when you get into August, things are sliding downhill into fall. At noon I started sort of a casserole in the crockpot with 4 chicken drumsticks and some […]
