Dad as a Craftsman

Last week we had bought a case of peaches. I’ve just had to clean up a bunch and get them into plastic containers for the freezer, as they were beginning to turn bad. I’m running out of those plastic containers, so I may have to go back to using glass jars again if this keeps […]

A Birthday Party of Sorts

Dad does not remember birthdays, nor does he know how to plan surprises, or even to shop for gifts. I’ve long ago come to terms with that, and it no longer bothers me. It’s not necessarily that he wouldn’t want to, he just doesn’t know how. Past experiences have taught me that if I want […]

It’s Berry Season Around Here!

Well, I bought that Costco membership card yesterday. Even got a $10 cash card to spend right away, courtesy of the young man who answered my questions last week. But had a bit of a let down as we went looking for my list of grocery items, and I saw that many of the items […]

Holiday Coming & How our Garden Grows

We’re preparing for our short holiday this weekend. As I mentioned last week, my brother Ernie and his wife, Penny, have asked Dad to build them a two-seat glider swing, such has he used to build to sell a number of years ago. They offered to fly him in, but Dad would rather we drive […]

A Contract with Blessings

We are blessed with almost daily rains. We did have one rather warm, sunny summer day last week. If you weren’t here last Wednesday, you missed it. 🙂 The forecast says that Friday will be another summer day, but if you leave the province for the Canada Day long weekend – shoot, you’ll miss this […]
