5 Frugal Grocery Shopping Tips

I helped out a friends with some frugal grocery shopping tips on Sunday. People who are on social benefits get their January income just before Christmas. Which is nice if they are desperate for some Christmas food or treats, but if they spend it all, they are stuck without basics like groceries in January. Until […]


New Year’s Day Surprise

Happy New Year! Did you get any New Year’s Day surprise? Probably not like I did! 🙂 I hope your holidays went well, and you have saved some great memories of times with your family and friends. Mine went much as I’d planned and expected. I was especially pleased last week to follow my Retreat […]


Revised Goals & Agenda

When you have as many goals as I would like to accomplish, you sort of have to be willing to wait for some things.They will come in due time. The Mission’s history book is top priority, and I’m happy to say I’m in the layout stage, and hoping that the pace will quicken; if preparing […]


Responses to Gr’ma’s Hope Chest

Several friends have commented the hope chest of my Gr’ma’s that I told you about before Christmas.

Gr’ma’s Little Brown Hope Chest

Some Friends Write. . .

Perhaps I should change this area to be for feedback when I get some. I don’t get feedback or comments every week, and there are times I would rather keep some conversations with friends private, but if, and when I do get some feedback, I think I will enter it here so you can see […]


You’ve got Christmas Mail!

Hey, you’ve got Christmas mail! Yes, today I have a Christmas card and a letter ready for you. Of course, you know I don’t like to piggy such gifts in emails because they can so easily be blocked by filters. That way you never get to see them at all. You don’t even know you […]


The History Book Inspiring Me

Now this might discourage others, for there have been delays. I know already that I will not succeed by the end of December after all. But that doesn’t mean I should throw in the towel and quit. There were just a lot more things happening in 2007, so it took three evenings to write up […]


To Change or Not to Change

Well, only two readers responded last week. Both like the RoseBouquet as it is. I did say that you had until the end of December to respond, so I’ll wait a little longer to make the final decision. In several ways I see the RoseBouquet as a continuation of my old Pen Pal Club that […]
