Another Banquet & Carol Singing

Last Wednesday I was at the banquet I mentioned, sponsored by my client, MHSS. That was very nice, excellent food, carol singing, and then a trivia quiz that was sort of fun. I knew that my friend Linda, who was there too, had never seen the archives, which are in the basement of the building […]


Christmas Preparations

So what part of Christmas preparations keeps you most busy these days? If you have been reading the RoseBouquet a few years (and I’m grateful for all you long-time subscribers!), you will recall that I don’t bother with a lot of decorations or gift-buying or the many hours of baking that some folks put in. […]

Christmas Banquet Invitation

Are you going to Christmas banquets yet? Do you get invited to some banquets out of the blue? I have! I knew I was invited to a client organization’s banquet intended to thank all the volunteers, and also celebrate Christmas together. That happens next week Wednesday evening. But then on Sunday morning, right after church, […]


A Peace Event: Blacks and Mennonites

My ethnicity is Mennonite, and since our earliest history back about the time of the Reformation, we have been known as pacifists.That is, we believe in making peace rather than war. Therefore, rather than making a big patriotic fuss at Remembrance Day events on or around November 11th, our Mennonite Historical Society of Saskatchewan (MHSS) […]


Next Tuesday’s Hospital Procedure

Now, what with next Tuesday’s hospital procedure for which I’m scheduled, I’m not quite certain if I should promise an issue of the RoseBouquet, or say, I’m begging a leave of absence. This is not a big problem in my mind, but my new doctor ordered test/procedure that has to be done in hospital, and […]


Filling my Facebook Pages

Not everyone is on Facebook. I resisted for a long time thinking I didn’t have time for such foolishness. However, I kept reading that it was a smart business move to be on Facebook. Now I make a point of going to browse there while eating my lunch. Except that plan goes phooey on the […]


Snow & Blogs

While the Caribbean and eastern coasts of lower USA had their troubles with Hurricane Matthew, here in Saskatchewan we had three days of snow. In fact, on October 5, the news reports said that the snowfall that day had broken a 100 year old record from Oct. 5, 1916. However, since there were no official […]

Health and Food News

Hmm… aside from the saga of the trees, I have only bits of health and food news to share. I’ve mentioned that I have this new personal doctor, and that she sent me for a bone density test and some lab tests (which I had done last week). So yesterday I saw the doctor again […]


My First Amazon Sale

Back in spring I offered to sell some items for my brother, Tom. He took a couple of weeks to think about it, and agreed. But trying to work in the learning to use ebay and Amazon was slow going for me, and because of the book project, I had only 2 mornings a week […]

A Photo Shoot

Ever since I got my new glasses in July I’ve been thinking I need an extensive photo shoot to get new photos of myself to update on my websites and blogs. On Saturday morning I was pondering the possibility of inviting a certain friend over for Sunday afternoon to play at studio and doing a […]
