​Busy with joy
 I've always been a busy person. There's really no other way to describe my decades-long lifestyle: busy, busy, busy and loving it. For the last several years, however, I've stopped operating as a technical writing business, stopped (for health reasons) a number of volunteer activities and most difficult of all, stopped doing all my housework by myself. I admit it's not been easy, this not being busy business. Read more...

Altogether wins it!
For all of the more than five decades we've been married, Ed and I have enjoyed playing board games. Out of respect for trade marks and their legal implications, I won't name any but one of our favourites involves lining up numbers in sequence. Read more...

Thoughts on cutting the grass
This week I've been thinking a lot about grass. No, not that kind and no, I have not been imbibing, inhaling or sniffing any foreign substance. Rather, my thoughts have been with each of those individual blades that comprise our green and brown lawn. Look at it this way: for a few months each year, lawns are expected to look good. They are raked, fertilized, aerated and watered and in general, primed to outgrow the neighbour's plot of ground. If you want to be an example to the neighbourhood, remember that looking good requires a lot of effort. Read more...

As time goes by
This week Hubby and I celebrated 51 years of marriage, a great accomplishment for any couple. Yes, like anyone who is truly honest, we’ve had our ups and downs but as the years have gone by our love and appreciation for each other has only continued to deepen. As Dooley Wilson wrote in his song “As Time Goes By”, it isn’t the passing of time or even of that initial infatuation with each other, that binds two individuals together, its their commitment to one another. Ken Rolheiser, a Saskatchewan columnist whose work I always admire, wrote in his weekly column, “World Wide Marriage Encounter tells us that today one in two marriages fails. If the couple is married in church and continues to go to church, only one in fifty fails; but where the couple is married in church, continues to go to church and has a prayer life together, the failure is one in 1005.” Read more...

The blessings of intervention
In our daily phone call, my daughter-in-law explained why she didn't answer the phone immediately: "I was just unloading my groceries when I saw a little bird that had fallen from its nest. I managed to pick it up without hurting it and I got it back to the nest. I was afraid that our cat or the ones in the neighbourhood would get it if I hadn't picked it up immediately" As you can well imagine, we both were relieved that she was there to intervene at just the right moment. Read more...

Keep your eyes on the goal
It was while cutting heavy brown paper to wrap around a parcel destined to another province that I realized the truth that I wanted to share in this week's offering. That truth comes from a most simple action. You see, for years the simple task of cutting paper the right size usually resulted in a hunk far too long on one side and, usually, too short on the other. Unless I got a ruler and drew a line, the results were rarely what I'd envisioned. Read more...
