Week in Pictures

All summer long I was so excited to sign up for this holistic nutrition 16 hour workshop through PCC. I got there, and: 1) the instructor I was paying to learn from decided not to show up, 2) the guy who subbed was 30 minutes late in showing up to teach, then spent the next 45 minutes on introductions because he had no idea about the program, the content, nothing - a lot of reading straight off the powerpoint slides, and 3) I wasn't even on the attendance sheet, and learned there were emails the other students got about a test that had to be taken and a paper that had to be written that I knew nothing about. I went home and logged on and my registration was accurate, so after doing more digging, it turns out that PCC, while taking my money for the class, assigned me to a class in December unrelated to this. No one there responded because it was the weekend, so I had to just drop out and am now going to need to go through the godawful process of demanding a refund - and still not getting the benefit of the teacher, class, etc.! UGH! What a nightmare.  I guess I don't feel bad missing it when the ND teaching the class, in talking about women's health said that he was "glad he wasn't a lady".  WTF.

All summer long I was so excited to be signed up to take a holistic nutrition therapy weekend-long workshop through PCC. I got there, and: 1) the instructor decided not to show up, 2) the sub was 30 minutes late, then spent 45 minutes on intros because he had no idea about the program, content, etc – reading straight off the slides, and 3) I wasn’t even on the roster! Turns out there were emails students got with a syllabus, test, and paper to be written ASAP – all that I knew nothing about. PCC, while taking my money, assigned me in the system to the wrong class. So ultimately I had to drop out and request a refund – UGH! What a nightmare. I don’t feel bad as missing it when the sub said, in starting to talk about women’s health, that he was “glad he wasn’t a lady”. Sigh.


Meanwhile, my scarlet runner beans are still going strong - actually a bit frustrating as I'd like them to hurry up and dry on the vine so I can harvest them!

The multitude of mushrooms and varieties this year has been incredible.  These brown buggers are everywhere...

And I can't even explain these neon orange ones nearby!

Just love the one growing out of this poplar stump - the top one has been there about a year...

Just love the ones growing out of my old poplar stump in the backyard – the top “psychedelic” looking one has been there for over a year…


Fall colors are still here, and the raking is in full swing in our neighborhoods here in Stumptown!
