September Post Linkup | Fall Goals

photo_Death to Stock_graphics_The B Bar

This month I’m participating in B Bar’s September link-up.  My goals for the Fall include:

1 – Learn how to design websites.  Website design and development is a skill that I never thought I’d learn; however, I have creative ideas that I’d like to employ on my blog.  

Initially, I thought I’d find a simple plug-in for the design features that I’d like to incorporate.  When that failed, I decided to hire a web designer, only the quotes I received were all over the place.  For example, a couple of designers informed me the job was too small for them to consider; whereas, other designers quoted between $1,500.00 and $4,000.00.

I signed up for a twelve week Website Design course at the local Adult Education Center. Our first meeting was last night and I’m super excited that I’m learning HTML/CSS/Javascript.  

As soon as I become proficient in website coding (hopefully by January), I’m going to re-design and add a bit of sparkle to my blog.

2 – Create a signature Fall cocktail.  During my recent trip to Venice, I purchased Recioto, an Italian dessert wine.  I’d like to try combining red-fleshed apples with the wine, warm spices associated with Autumn, and possibly a splash of sparkling wine to create a delicious pink concoction.

3 – I enjoy fitness walking, and I thought it would be great to enroll in a 6 week hiking course. Hiking will allow me to discover and explore the local mountains and canyons; and will give me the opportunity to scout locations for upcoming photo shoots. A couple of images from previous walks I’ve taken during the past year.
