Yes, it’s July. But when I found the perfect piece to complete this basket, I couldn’t resist putting it together! And even for a summer birthday, wedding, or shower, it’s nice to get something you can use in a different season! (Or I f you’re like me, you’re Christmas shopping now anyway!)

It’s getting busier!  Love it!  There’s a new gallery coming, too!  More info to follow!

Natalie is one to watch - immensely talented! She and Mike P. Thiessen also happen to star in an upcoming short film shot partly in our home!

We celebrate Natalie Kloster, the first RSA student to participate in our partnership with Crandall University in New Brunswick. Under the RSA-Crandall Transfer Agreement, Natalie (FRSA 2018) transferred two years of RSA training to Crandall U in pursuit of a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts-Theatre. We wish her much success in her continued studies!

I love clover! If you’ve been by recently, you may have noticed a bit of freshly seeded lawn. We planted a mix of clover and grass - it should stay greener and lusher than grass alone, plus get flowers! If you keep it mown, the clover stays small (in fact, they call it micro-clover). Maybe someday we’ll have to get bees!

Gah! I know I keep saying it, but SO BEAUTIFUL! It’s sad that the normal numbers of visitors haven’t been able to take it in!

This June has been one for the books, in more ways than one. Thanks to all our friends, old and new, who have so generously supported us through these strange times.

This happened today, too! 💕

Looking for an excuse for a country drive this weekend? Rosebud is absolutely beautiful right now, and several places, including us, are open for business from noon to four tomorrow!

I think someone should tell the mosquitos that humans are at the top of the food chain. Without them, summer in Rosebud might be perfect! Have you had a float/swim in the river? It’s lovely! (Showering after is recommended! 😂)

I’m curious (and I miss asking nosy questions on Saturdays!) - if you could be a fictional character, who would you choose? I’m torn between my two favourite Jane Austen heroines (Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse) and Mrs. Hudson, landlady to Sherlock and Watson!

06/20/2020

Is this the first day of summer? It sure feels like it! Getting ready to open our doors (metaphorically - mosquitoes!) to show you around! And if you’ve been in before but haven’t seen the Ann Suite, it’s now finished and open as well!

06/17/2020

Getting ready for visitors this weekend! The Ann Suite will be finished, so we’re excited to show it off!

Six years ago, I accidentally dug into a nest of bunnies - thankfully without injury - and them we had cats for a few years... I’m loving the wildlife coming back! We’ve seen rabbits and a handful of chipmunks this year!

I’m finding it a little hard to know what to post these days. I know I appreciate some levity to break up the negative news we’re seeing, but also don’t want to ignore painful situations. I feel like this post addresses what’s going on in our world without getting political. I pray for justice. I’m so thankful for organizations like IJM who fight for it, the world over.

The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many more are deeply painful reminders of the sin of injustice. IJM Canada stands in ardent solidarity with all those who mourn and seek justice.⁣⁣⁣

Power should always be stewarded carefully, and freedom to live in safety should be for all people - always.
