Friday Catch Up

This past week has been continued catch up of school work, with an upswing. I'm unofficially finished 1 of my courses, which leaves 5 more to complete. End date is December 16th, and I'm doing my best to finish before then. It's been long days and nights but I'm doing my best to plough through, so I can have one less weight upon my shoulders. Breathing room, or grieving room, which I can not do right now. I need to finish all of my courses with great marks. Passing, no matter how bad the circumstances, is not good enough for me.

I'm going through the last of my mom's homemade bread, from the freezer. This means super thin slices, so it lasts as long as possible. This week it's been her fennel bread. Who knew bread could make me cry. The fennel bread is so good with pepperpot at Christmas time. None of that this year, because that was one of the dishes I was still getting yearly lessons on.

The kennels are full at my local humane society, again. It's so odd, how one week the kennels are almost empty, to being full the next. Sad and kind of depressing. Below is one of the dogs, I had the pleasure of walking this week. Not a fan of the clipped ears, because it looked like the "owners" did it. I wish people would not clip ears. Another rant for another day. I swear I have full conversations with the dogs. Sometimes I forget that I'm in public, until someone comes up behind me. Who knows what they think, but whatever, the dogs seem to enjoy my ramblings.

and I love it! It's my favourite season and so far it's warmer then normal. The calm before the storm, according this years Almanac. A long, cold Winter is on the way. I'm not complaining because other than moving to somewhere in Southern California or Vegas, there's nothing that I can do about it.

I'm slowly but surely making my to a decent and somewhat workable school schedule. I'm getting assignments and quizzes completed on time, so that's all that I can ask for. It's taking me longer then I would like but there's a lot going on and I'll share more when I can. There is no perfect timing in life, so I'm doing what I can.

Working on winding up some wool and spinning the rest of my black Alpaca that I started 2 years ago? I know that's bad. If I continue to wait until I have "time" it will never get done. So when I'm watching a movie, vlog, or listening to a podcast, I'll wind or spin. I'm thinking of making a hat/mitten/scarf set, for the Winer. I'm also deciding on freestyle or pattern. Who knows?

More writing ideas are swirling in my head and there is not enough time to do more then slap the idea on paper, so that I don't lose it. I guess I'll have to learn how to write in minutes instead of hours or days, like I prefer to do. That's a change that I'm not sure I want to work on.

More inspiration to get my entrepreneurship on the go, below. Business plans, finishing school, future employment. Stressful but I want to help the animals so I need to keep moving. This Wolf Hound was awesome. I think he surprised is older self with the 7 foot leap into the sir to "catch" a squirrel, with whom he was having a 1 minute faceoff with. This young Boxer was playful as anything. She's a sweet girl and with a little training to not jump on people when she gets excited, she would be a perfect family dog. All my biased opinions of course. 🙂
