Time for a recap. Well, did I tell you I wrote a book? I did, sort of. Mostly, I compiled it. It is a family history for my Grandma's 90th birthday. I had all my Grandma's sons and daughters fill out questionaires and wrote biographies. My grandma wrote her childhood memories and I put them all into a book with photos. It turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. Actually, lots of people said they liked it. I could have picked it apart ten ways from Sunday, but I just published it anyhow.
I used Blurb.com and overall, I was satisfied. You can't tell here, but I made some huge boo-boos and contacted customer support. They were able to grant me the clemency of a re-print even though the mistakes could have been considered *cough* my fault. I would use the service again, as I was happy with the quality of the book once completed.
I think my Grandma liked it and that's what matters. It was her present after all.
I am taking guitar lessons and they are going fairly well. The more I learn though, the more I realize I have to learn. I suppose that is progress. I am working on Christmas music right now. I have started some gift shopping, and I got some great ideas from the bake sale they had at work as to packaging etc. I raided the same Dollarama and got my supplies. I'm ready to go. Just need to bake now, can't wait to start!

Oh, and THIS happened. A one day strike at my work place. That's all I will say about that, for now.
Ciao for now. Bean.
