I forgot to share our dressed up garbage truck this past Tuesday, Canada Day. I've never seen a flag draped across one before.

Kai wants to know, what the heck happened to all of the bees?

june 30 2014 kai

I knew it was bad but now I'm noticing their absence in my own backyard. Literally. By this time of year, I've seen and taken hundreds of photos of bees around the yard and in the parks. (Still trying for the perfect shot.) I've seen 3 bees since April of this year. Only 1 last week. I do not know how people are not freaking out about this. I don't know how the governments around the world are not taking a collective stand against pesticides and whatever else is killing off the bees. And yes it is an issue that is just has important as war, famine, sexual explotation etc. If we don't have bees pollinating our crops, most of our food supply will be gone. Where are my bees? A Facebook page that I follow, concerning bees: Ma's Backyard Beez. A great resource and they link to great articles and other websites.

july 1 2014 rose 3Time for another library run. I renew the books 2-3 times, but I get them read. I finished The Amazing Absorbing Boy, by Rabindranath Maharaj.  An immigrant story about a teenager from Trinidad, who comes to Canada to be reunited with his absentee father and hopefully find better opportunities. It was a great read, until the end. Why? There was no real conclusion! Did the main character stay in Canada or go back to Trinidad? I guess I'm left to fill in the blank.

Till next time,

The only reason that I'm excited that's it's Friday, is because this Monday is Family Day in a few provinces in Canada. Ontario being one of them. I'm thankful for that and am going to enjoy it. I've learned to take advantage of Government/Federal/Provincial days off, because I have the law behind me to say, I need a damn break! I know that I'll be working on school stuff for the rest of today and all of this weekend. I plan to get caught up and comfortable with where I am, in school, if it kills me. Okay, that's a bit dramatic but I think you know what I mean. There's no point in taking this program if I can't teach someone, with near perfection, everything that I've learned. At least that's the way that I feel about it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI did finally finish, 1 of the 3 books that I borrowed from the library. Who Asked You? by Terry McMillian, 2013. It took me weeks to finish it because if I do have any time to read my eyes are burning from exhaustion, so it's a constant, "I'll read another chapter tomorrow," deal.  So I'm hoping that I can get another head start on book 2 of 3, (Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach, The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow). Maybe watch a movie, or keep working on my book forward. Which by the way has been thrown way back out of my minds eye. I knew I would be busy with school, but I underestimated the workload by a lot. My first book schedule is months off and I have to find a way to get it back on track. I'm still trying to figure that one out, since school really has no end for me. Anyway, I'm off, I have a courses calling me. Have a great weekend and Family Day, if you get the day!
