April 18, 2003 Chautauqua



From the Editor's Computer 

   Have you ever noticed that just when you think you have it all together...life happens!

   Saturday I was in a rearranging mood, so decided to make some changes at the library.  I was having fun, and even discovered some treasures that I didn’t know existed.

   I decided to vacuum the floor, just to finish off the job.  Everything was going great, until I got to the stairs, where the vacuum died - painfully - with smoke and spewing of unmentionables.  The situation was made worse because we were having a supper that evening, and it was now impossible to breathe because of the smoke.  Needless to say, I had to come up with a rapid method of airing out the building and only a short time to do it in.  I did prevail, with the help of an air freshener, and our supper was a success. 

   What surprise is Life throwing your way?

April 4, 2003 Chautauqua



From the Editor's Computer 

   The moisture we have been seeing of late is a wonderful sight to behold.  Spring has truly sprung here in Alberta.

    Spring is a good time to reflect on our lives and our blessings.  As the earth comes to renewed life with buds appearing, as well as the green grass, we should take a moment or two and reflect on how we are coming more alive with the spring.

   Despite what is happening in the world all around us, we do have a lot to be thankful for, and I believe we need to remember that more often.  We all have umpteen things that we are grateful for, so start making a list.  See how long you can make it.

   Happy Spring!
