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 […]

Two of My Traits

Two of my traits are making me a lot more work than you might get into. One is my commitment to keep any and every promise I make. The other is my resolve to do everything I tackle as WELL and THOROUGHLY as I can before I call it done. Really, I didn’t know how […]

A Slower Pace Now

A slower pace and spirit has settled over me this week, but last week it was still pretty intense. I was trying to get more album pages finished and put into the first binder. The rest are now on my agenda to finish by the end of this month. There were a flurry of emails […]

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. […]

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 […]
