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. […]

It’s Promo Day!

Last week, while waiting for a final decision from the Executive Committee of our mission Board, I polished up a 6 page sales letter, and also prepared a webpage version. I sent the committee each improvement. One man thought I should go ahead, but I do understand working under my authority figures, so I waited, […]

Where Did This Morning Go?

Whew! Where did this morning go? I’m behind with this RoseBouquet because I’ve had more of those Advance Reviewers’ visits this morning, and learned of more errors to correct. I guess I can only repeat what I said last week about being glad to have this opportunity to find out about these things before the […]


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 […]


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 […]


A Printing & Collating Mess

Things look rather cluttered and messy. Last week I decided I would have to ignore housekeeping and weeding, and even my other blocks of personal time to get this book DONE to the point where I can get 20 copies printed and bound and distributed to a select list of people who have some background […]


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 […]


A Busy Birthday Yesterday

I had a busy birthday yesterday. First I had to beg off from my walk with Rita, as I had some business errands to run, banking, see my insurance agent about bringing down my house insurance (the bill was suddenly over $700 and due at the end of the week), and something to do at […]


Blooms Busting Out!

We had a good downpour of rain early last week, and so now the blooms are busting out all over! I hope to do a proper garden tour in August again, but I thought today I would just show you a few contrasts from what parts of the garden looked like in June and what […]
