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.

Happy Independence Day

I’m wishing a Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! In my heart I’m with you today, for I listen to BBNradio.org all day long at the computer, and it is celebrating with lots of godly and patriotic songs, and dramas. I think it is lovely that there is such a godly overtone to […]


What I See with my NEW Eye!

Okay, talking about what I see with my new eye may be rather melodramatic. I still have the same left eye, but the new lens put in there makes it feel like a new eye. Wow! Whites are dazzling white! Colours are so vivid! Everything about two feet from my face is quite sharply focused […]
