Hello out there. How are you doing? I hope you and yours are safe and well. And if you have a challenge to face, know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
No, that is not just a platitude of mine. I send out a blessing for all my readers on all my blogs every day. It is my belief that I do not need to know you in person to be able to send supportive energy to you. And you do not need to be a believer in this sort of thing to benefit from it either. Doesn't it make you feel better just to know that someone thinks of you daily?
Speaking of challenges. I've set myself a couple to get through cancer treatment. In the last couple of weeks, I let you know what I am up on all my blogs. From next week onwards I will add some membership only posts on my page at "Buy Me A Coffee".
I am going to give you an insight into my blogging day and teach you every day English or German hence "Germlish". My mother tongue is German, but I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I do not feel I fit into the "normal" English teaching jobs, so I decided to create my own way of teaching.
This is not for people who want to use their language skills for school or university. This course is for those who wish to use their language skills for everyday use to speak to their friends on social media, for example. It will give you the basics and ideas and suggestions on where to get more information about more language teaching from.
I am not quite sure how often, I will be able to do so depending on how my cancer treatment goes. My plan is to do a short daily post besides Sundays. Well, we'll see how that goes.
And otherwise what have I been up to?
Last week I got invited by Dough J Cooper to review the second book in his "Bump Time" series. I read the first book last year and was totally hooked. Even though I felt I had enough on my plate, I decided to read and review his second book too and am so glad that I did. I wanted to know how Diesel and Leilah's stories would progress. It was certainly worth the read. Find out what I thought about the book here on "The Bee Creates...". And you can find out here what else I have planned to read this year.
On "The Bee Writes..." I stepped back in time and published two book reviews from previous years. One was for Terry Brooks "The Morgawr". The other for Mahtem Shifferaw's poetry book "Fuchsia" which really impressed me. What genre's do you prefer to read?
I took some time to update the layout on "Bee Wordless" on Blogger. The grey background brings out the photos much better. And the first page shows pictures with the post titles which I think fits much better for a photoblog. I love it, and I hope you enjoy it too. This week I posted some photos from a trip to Switzerland in 2015. Please find the latest posts here.
That is it from me for this week.
Have a lovely and creative Thursday despite everything. I am looking forward to meeting you all!
Please stay a little longer and discover music and good news on The Bee Writes... at Wordpress.
You are more into photography? Please find my photo posts for Wordless Wednesday on Bee Wordless... on Blogger. Thanks!
Just one more thing before you go: The hospital that is treating me for cancer is fundraising for a dedicated breast cancer unit which would allow same-day diagnosis and better premises for patients and staff.
Please, if you can spare a little money hop over to their Just Giving Page and give as little or much as you can. Or share the page on your social media. Your support means a lot to me! Thank you very much.
