The Photo Album Project

It is time to explain the photo album project I’m working on. Particularly as it is uppermost in my mind this morning. I put in a long evening at it last night and felt great to see that I had scanned, arranged and labeled all the photos from one of the Elliott albums. I’ve just […]


A Precious 91 Year old Lady

Let’s go to Saturday and my visit with a precious 91 year old lady. (I told you about my home routine last week and nothing has changed there, except that I had such a good time on Saturday I didn’t get home to do my housework. :)) My originating family never put up much of […]


Back to a Schedule

Yesterday was my first day back to a schedule like I’ve used for years (with adjustments) to make progress on many jobs and goals at a steady pace. I felt so good at the end of the day! Do you ever ask yourself, “How will I get all this done?” May I tell you how […]


My Pumpkin Story

Last week an acquaintance had sent me three pumpkin recipes that looks so good, I felt I had to buy a pumpkin after all. I don’t always bother, and had not grown any spaghetti squash, which I often use as a substitute. So besides all the other things I was doing I took time to […]

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 […]


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. You may recall that I was transplanting a lot of aloe vera into bigger, better pots and look forward to growing some giant aloes this winter. But I have only so much window sill space, […]


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. […]
