Sunday Post 56; It's Monday, what are you reading? 41
The Sunday Post - a chance for a chat and catch-up with other bloggers - is hosted by Kimba, here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? Is now hosted by Kathryn over here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/
Let's see ... school's back! SCHOOL IS BACK. I mean, I love spawn of course, but dear LORD he can talk!!! Having him at home all the time also makes working at home that much harder, so I'm hoping that I can productively finish this spreadsheet this week. I need to have it done by Friday anyway, and on Friday I have an intro thing to go to for my course. I'm officially a student again!
Never ever saw myself doing any kind of business course - I have a degree but it's in English literature and is also from 20-plus years ago. This will be .............................. interesting.
There's still some paperwork things to clear up, as there always seems to be, but other than that, as of Monday Feb 13, I will be a card-carrying student. I'm taking papers in employment relations, intro to law, workplace communication, intro to computers, intro to marketing and intro to management. That should spark up some dormant brain cells!
I finished two books over the weekend - Dance Off by Ariel Tachna and Nessa L. Warin - a very genial and sweet M/M romance novel set during a Dance with the Stars style competition, and Return of the King (LOTR) which packs a different emotional punch every time I read those last words of Samwise Gamgee's "Well, I'm back."
I'm flirting with The Summer Queen by Elizabeth Chadwick, and possibly Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray - I loved One Thousand Pieces of You, and this is the sequel.
Other than that, more spreadsheeting, school, getting ready for uni - and also being a grown-up and bidding for freelance editing work on Upwork.com. Why not, right? I have 19 years' experience as a copy-editor, I feel like I can still put it to good use.
I did one post last week - my third awesome lady; Helena of Egypt. Once again, frustratingly, not much is known. Next up is my first author, but I may have to re-think that. I've put Hypatia in that category, but from what I've found she seems to have been a mathematician. So I need to dig around for a very early lady author for the next slot.
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
