Merry Monday - A Schedule Feast

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignright" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

My life often gets a little busy.  Here was my weekend:

  1. Friday - Final practice then performance for fundraiser. I should've probably stuck around to party longer after, but a friend was driving to my area of town anyway.

  2. Saturday - I did dishes, worked on a group presentation, and worked on other homework.

  3. Sunday - I went to church, had the second last practice before my 2nd grading attempt of 2nd level black belt. After that, I donated items, did some groceries, did homework, visit with my little buddy, and capped it all off with B-Movie night.


This is my next couple of weeks:

  1. Monday - Bring my car for a tire retorque. Go to work placement to figure things out. Go to play writing class. Homework. Tweak and submit TV episode treatment. Double feature at the Mayfair.

  2. Tuesday - Two classes (one with presentation). Final practice before grading attempt. Lengthen ties on my outfit for grading.

  3. Wednesday - Class. Wash needed clothing for grading.

  4. Thursday - Two classes. Iron grading outfit. Pack for trip.

  5. Friday - Travel with friends to GTA.

  6. Saturday - Grading. Seminar. Either celebrating or mourning grading results with libations.

  7. Sunday - Do homework while watching the tournament. Food. Travel back to Ottawa.

  8. Monday - Class.

  9. Tuesday to Thursday - Was supposed to be work placement, but we're postponing until the new year for my sanity and theirs, so just classes and the other usual stuff.

  10. Friday - Homework

  11. Saturday & Sunday - Digi60

  12. Monday - Class. Breathing.


And then I think it's Christmas Party season followed by Christmas.

Well, I expect I may forget some posts over the next couple of weeks and I'm apologizing in advance. The most important thing is getting my school work done.

If I get time in between that all and continuing my house cleanup, I'll put some time in editing my novel or maybe even go on a date? Who can really say what will happen on any given day? Working as a planner for a long time taught me plans are limitedly useful and goals with flexible timelines are more important because sometimes it's really not about how long it takes to achieve something, but more about persevering.

Speaking of my novel, I got this brilliant idea for it the other day and then I forgot it! I was so upset!!! Somehow, I've managed to recall what it was, so I am relieved about that. Usually ideas get lost forever if they aren't written down right away in my experience.

Anyway, I think I have a quiz this morning, so I better study that material. I know most of it, but she might want specific wording...

Guid cheerio the nou,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
