“The RoseBouquet”
A Plague Over the Kitchen Sink

We’ve been enjoying a lot of fruit the last few weeks, and though I’ve been hiding what’s left in the fridge, we have a veritable plague of fruit flies this week! All over the sink and kitchen cabinets. I’ve been washing things down but good, and setting out apple cider vinegar and honey in a […]

Building a Summer Swing

I realized after last week’s RoseBouquet that I had the photos, and could have done up a story of Dad and my brother Ernie building that swing in Winnipeg in early July. It slipped my mind. However, I’ll give you the photo story here now. Dad bringing out the cord to start on the swing. […]

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 […]

Giddy with Anticipation

I’m still learning about those php forms for my Get Acquainted pages on my site, but I think I latched onto a good pre-written form/script yesterday, and hope that I can still get all four of them functional in the next few days. My heart is really ready to move on to something else. I […]

Ruthe’s Theological World-view

Have you observed that authors tend to give their main character at least, their own world-view and concepts of theology. It creeps in even when we think we are not doing it. I got to thinking; I know I was deliberately giving my heroine aspects of my own relationship with God, but what theological World-view-points […]

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 […]

Forms & Clients

I did have the first two forms of the Get Acquainted forms in the Arbour section working, but as I started the third one yesterday I spotted a problem. Hunting for the solution, I discovered a notice that explained the probable cause. Best answer was to uninstall the phpformgenerator and install a fresh download. So […]

How to Pray Panic Prayers

Your sister-in-law calls to say their little boy is in the hospital, VERY sick. The one you especially love! Your spouse has some aches and pains that won’t go away and has some tests done by the doctor. Next thing you know, there’s a call from the doctor – “Not Cancer!” you shriek as you […]
