A New Garage for Me?

A new garage for me? This fall yet? Wow! Last week it became a possibility . . . . Further to the things that all seemed to happen on Tuesday last week, Gary has fixed the back step that was sagging, taken out the “not- all-there” pantry window, and installed the new one I’ve had […]

Happening All At Once!

Whew! Today is a day when all kinds of things are happening all at once! I knew I had a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and that I’d want to get this RoseBouquet written and published by noon for sure. But before breakfast my cousin Gary (my handyman, and renovations man from last summer, remember?) phoned. […]


Bethany’s 30th Anniversary

On Sunday afternoon my friend Gayle and I were at Bethany’s 30th Anniversary. 30 years ago a number of Mennonite churches got together to plan and build the first phase of a series of apartment towers, and by now a village of housing units and condos for retired people. This suites are not restricted to […]


Loyalty Costs Us

Do you agree that sometimes loyalty to friends costs us? In the long run it is worth it though! Our Mission, Impact Canada Ministries Inc., has finally sold our building after having it up for sale for 2 years. We need to move out by the end of August. So last week Tuesday at our […]

Chokecherry Day

One surprise phone call on Saturday morning turned it into a Chokecherry Day.

Still in my […]


Birthday Picnic

Yes, I had a very good day on my birthday. I had Judy and Ning who sit with me in church, and we stopped to pick up Gayle at her house. Though we had to wait a few minutes for her ride to drop her off, after attending their church. I had prepared a lunch […]


Garage Sale at Church

Our church had planned a community Garage Sale at Church on Saturday to raise money for a missions project. I had signed up, having piled things up in my front porch for either a yard sale of my own, or to join this one at church. Friday, I geared up to make mini-flyers and labels […]


Cleaning for Company

I was busy Saturday cleaning for company. Maybe you do that too? You don’t mind the ‘lived-in’ look, because you need to have things handy for the things you do throughout the day, and sometimes you just need to “be” who you are for a while without first picking everything up and putting away, or […]


It’s Raining!

“It’s raining! God is Blessing!” Dad used to say ecstatically on a day like today. Mind you, it was a German proverb he was quoting. He also loved to see a “Seven Day Soaker”. I don’t think we’ve had seven days of continuous rain yet, but we’ve been averaging 2 or 3 days of rain […]
