Seeing Things

I’ve been seeing things – unusual things that may not really be there! Don’t be afraid of me; I’m not dangerous. But I have been a little worried about my vision. On Saturday morning I woke up with a stiff neck, but I got dressed and got my laundry going downstairs, and a bit later, […]

The Little Ordinary Things of Easter

Did you have a big dramatic Easter weekend? No? Mine was filled with the little ordinary things of Easter. But the point is that we are celebrating and remembering the really big climax of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. We can’t match that drama with new experiences, can we? But we can rejoice in, and […]


Reorganizing When I ‘Clean’

My style of spring cleaning is to be reorganizing when I ‘Clean’. I meant to be doing that in my basement during the winter Saturdays. It didn’t quite come off. Either I wasn’t feeling up to it (shingles), or I had events to be at. (funeral, AGM, etc.) But last week I really dug in […]


My Surprise at Our AGM

I’m brimming over to tell you about my surprise at our AGM on Friday night! They completely caught me off guard! You know what AGM stands for, eh? It’s the abbreviation for Annual General Meeting. It’s something that all non-profits and charities have once a year, when they report to their membership or supporters and […]


A Minor Camera Miracle

You may recall that I mentioned my troubles that weekend of the MHSS AGM, with a second-hand camera I had bought on short notice. It would not accept the memory cards I put into it. I had to count on a friend to take the photos I needed for the written report of the meetings […]


If I Sound a Bit Hurried –

If I sound a bit hurried today, it is because I have a full agenda with extra events to attend. Am I ever thankful that my health has improved considerably over the weekend, and I feel more up to my usual strength and energy. On Saturday I did feel a little “off” and had a […]


What My Doctor Said

I’m just back from my doctor’s office. Thought I’d hold this RoseBouquet up until I could report what my doctor said. She is my regular physician as of July, but she had not been available week before last, so I had to fill her in on this saga. She was pleased with how the shingles […]


Organ Recital – Part 2

Here is my Organ Recital – Part 2 for those who have been so compassionate and have reached out in kindness to me this past week. You are probably waiting to hear how things have turned out so far. I found that taking my prescription and some painkillers about every 6 hours allowed me to […]

My “Organ Recital”

When you spend a lot of time with seniors, you will hear Organ Recitals quite often. These are not musical performances. Rather a description of what is wrong with their various bodily organs. The only musical instrument I play is a radio, and I generally refrain from giving “organ recitals”, however, today that is all […]
