“The RoseBouquet”
The First Feedback

On Sunday I dropped off a copy of the book for a Board member who was away at a funeral. He phoned last night all excited. He’d been reading in the book and got to about page 80, and he said he had to call to tell me how exciting he found this history! He […]

A Printing & Collating Mess

Things look rather cluttered and messy. Last week I decided I would have to ignore housekeeping and weeding, and even my other blocks of personal time to get this book DONE to the point where I can get 20 copies printed and bound and distributed to a select list of people who have some background […]


More to Do

It would be nice to say that after that I’ll veg-out for a few days, and then catch up with my housework and weeding of the garden. However, there is more to do! I still need to design the real cover, and finish the Appendix. I’ve got the timeline done there already, but I’m doing […]

Learn Self-Publishing by Doing

It is always fun to visualize one’s self as an author of a finished book. However, I recommend you learn self-publishing by doing it. Last night, while collating, I recalled that years ago, when I moved home to care for my parents, I had vivid dreams of writing books. Somehow I knew that to become […]


A Picnic Supper with Tom

Yesterday was a provincial holiday here; I decided on a picnic supper with Tom, my brother. We had not eaten outside yet so far this summer, and when you get into August, things are sliding downhill into fall. At noon I started sort of a casserole in the crockpot with 4 chicken drumsticks and some […]


Time-Crunch!

I’m sorry if my lifestyle sounds boring to you, but I am determined to get this history book for the mission done and I am at a time-crunch time now. I have said that I will be ready tomorrow to start printing copies for the proof-readers and fact-checkers. However, I’m not done with the Appendix […]

A Busy Birthday Yesterday

I had a busy birthday yesterday. First I had to beg off from my walk with Rita, as I had some business errands to run, banking, see my insurance agent about bringing down my house insurance (the bill was suddenly over $700 and due at the end of the week), and something to do at […]


My Secret Project

You don’t want to read about me going on and on about my efforts to wrap up the end of the history book, so I’ll just drop a hint that I’ve also been working on something else in a little block of time after lunch. Just an hour or less of time for future online […]
