Life has been wonderfully busy, so I just wanted to stop in for a quick catch up post.

-Had a sick family member that I was helping out, so that took a lot of my time. Family first!

-The sky's out here in the lower mainland are thick with smoke, from the continuing wildfires. The lighting is very off. Dark with a greenish hue. I hope everyone's breathing is okay. Click the here for info on ways that you can help.

-I've been working on an SEO/Marketing/Social Media certification. It would be nice to finish in a couple of days but if I want to retain the information, I need to take my time. Always improving myself, especially with the ever-changing digital world.

-No podcast or cooking video this week but I'll do my best to have one up next week. I swear the heat temporarily addled my brain.😁 Check out the previous cooking video.

-And finally, my patio garden is coming to an end. It wasn't the success that I had hoped for but at least I was able to grow a few things. Finally able to enjoy some tomatoes! Check out my latest Garden Update.

Have a great weekend & Friday!

Till next time,


"Everything Is Not For Everyone"

-The trials & tribulations of entrepreneurship. Sometimes you have to dip back into outside employment. I've been concentrating on the outside world job search (for quite a while now) so there hasn't been much time for editing many videos or even to film them. I'm working on that. There are quite a few videos on Nadia's Kitchen Creations to watch, so please go check them out a few there. Or Check out my Nadia Creates, my DIY channel.

-My latest podcast, Episode #77 - "Calm Amid The Madness"  is out. I won't be putting my podcast on YouTube or Vidme any longer. Very few views, so I'll put my time toward other endeavors, such as selling my Body/Hair Butters. I'm trying it out. Like anything in life, if you don't try you'll never know. I'm working on a very simplified selling system right here on I will still put my animal and nature videos on that channel NadiaDonella.

-My tomatoes are growing. I could be tasting one by next week. What can I say? Growing food makes me happy.☺️

-And finally, If you're looking for prints of my photographs or home decor, please check out my portfolio, under NadiaArtist. Newly added inspirational quotes are also available. Any other photography requests, email me at

Have a great weekend & Friday!
