Prepping the Garden

It is that time of year; time for prepping the garden and sowing my seeds.Last week I was trying to find a way to get someone to rototill my garden, or, in desperation, checking to see if I could buy one. Though I knew full well that I had no place to store a rototiller […]


My Wee Yard Sale Results

It was a gloriously sunny day. I was up at 6 and by 7 was setting up my make-shift tables with stacking stools, boxes and wide boards. My stock was almost all in the front porch, so I didn’t have to carry the boxes and things far, and I made a point of trying not […]


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 […]
