Books

Well the first week of online classes is complete. Sort of. Meaning that I did not get more then, some online reading done. I sent frustrating emails about assignment confusion and content not being available. I'm waiting on textbook deliveries, by the pony express (Canada Post). I had to pick a 6th course because one was not being taught this semester. I know they (registrars office) are busy but it helps to get this done earlier then a week before classes start. Yes, I'm a bit pissy but I hate doing things at the last minute. Let's not forget the wonky internet connection, from the storm earlier in the week. One minute pages are opening the next, nothing. Okay that was a great vent.

Even though I couldn't get the start that I wanted to, I've let it go and am using this "free" time to work on building nadiadonella.com and to get in some leisure reading.

On this months (possibly into October) reading list:
Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Roby
What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill
The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy  by Fiona Neill
Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni
Watcher of the Dark: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatural Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise

New glasses. I love them! They are light, cute and the world looks sharp again.

This break has been nice and even more so since just found out my classes don't start until September 9th. The 4:30 a.m. rises are over, at least by the alarm clock.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to fit in a little more photography, writing, and blogging, now that I don't have to commute to the college everyday. It's not a lot of spare time, just enough. I'll do my best.

I do plan on getting back to product reviews, why not? If I like a product why not share it? I also plan on doing some more recipes for animals and humans. I'd also like to throw some short videos on here to practice my editing skills. I didn't take the class to lose the skills, so again, why not? I also plan to change over my website, or rather build it from scratch instead of using this template. That might be while because it needs to be perfect and I do have a full course load. After all, I am showcasing the skills that I have learned for employment.

Books on the reading list for the remainder of my break.

Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Lawson Roby The Prodigal Son by Kimberla Lawson Roby Eyes to See: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise King of the Dead: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller by Joseph Nassise

I just wanted to share  some pictures of a black bee (I'm a bee lover), a female valley carpenter bee, according to google. (I have no idea.) From the start of her feed, to the end. The males are golden I colour, but I haven't seen them yet. I wasn't trying to get a series of shots, that's why the entire flower is not in frame but I liked what occurred. In future I will try for a series, to get everything in frame.
