Shaken Up!

Nov 01

So how’s it going? I said last month we wouldn’t be having an inside pet.  Charlie, our temporary, 19-pound Persian has come to visit.  He belongs to our pastor, Aaron Bouchard and his family.  They are staying with Sara’s parents in Brampton until they can find another rental property in Milton (a matter of prayer!). As soon as Charlie bounced out of his cage the...

Travelling Along Way

Jul 31

Greetings! I can’t believe what has been happening with my English Ivy. I planted it about ten years ago at the back corner of our Churchville home. It has travelled along the back wall of the house as well as along the driveway side and is almost turning the corner at the front of the house. One plant! It must love our soil.

During the past two months they have been blooming wonderfully with a lovely, petite, pink flower in our front garden. What a stand out in an otherwise brown, icy/snowy background. I...

He Careth for You!

Spring Greetings from Churchville! A few days before spring arrived in March we were hit with one last wintry blast. The ground was thickly covered in powdery whiteness. I happened to look out our bedroom window and spotted my first robin of the season pecking away at the berries on the sumac trees along our driveway. I was grateful he had something to eat for there...
