Go to the Doctor? Yes. No…

Do you ever have trouble deciding whether to go see your doctor when you’re sick?

I’ve been wrestling with this for several days now. I came down with a flu bug on Saturday night.

Plodding Away at Christmas Mail

My bulk order of 15 copies of my own novel arrived on Monday. I’m rather excited about selling to folks locally here whom I hesitated to urge to buy because I knew the cost. Only, I’m not very good at sales this week:)

Carol Festival Conversations & Singing

Every year, the first or second Sunday of December, there is a Carol Festival in our local school gym, put on by four participating churches. I always look forward to this. Some years each church has a choir practiced up, or sometimes they have smaller singing groups, even the school prepares a children’s choir. This year they tried the mass choir idea again.

Anyway, I often end up sitting beside someone that I haven’t talked to for years, or have never met before. This time I was beside a nice retired lady

Sharri – the Little Sister

(a character in Ruthe’s Secret Roses)

The delightful thing about having a little sister, is that you get to watch them grow up. Later on you might even have her for a friend on an equal footing. That’s not guaranteed, but sisters often report growing very fond of one another later, even if they fought over everything as children.

In Ruthe’s Secret Roses, Ruthe has a very close relationship with her younger, seven-year-old sister, but not so close to the middle sister.

Hinting Works

Last week one evening, after doing dishes, I came back in from tossing the compost on the garden (we let it freeze and disintegrate in the spring, and then Dad rotor tills it into the soil). and I said to Dad, who was sitting in his recliner, “You know, next summer I’m going to persist in bringing up and whining for a yard light at the back of the house to shine into the garden. Do you think it will help?”

13 Christmas Meditations – as my Gift to You

My gift e-book, 13 Christmas Meditations, is ready for your Advent reading. A gift from me to you. I had the devotionals written and ready last year, but didn’t get to formating them into an e-book. Now I’ve got that done, and also prepared a print version, which I’ll make into little booklets for friends who still won’t touch a computer. I can’t ignore them just because they are not on the internet planet, can I?
