Last friday I got an email from blurb.com that the book had been shipped. I archived the email and didn’t think anymore about it. When I opened my mailbox today, what do I see? To my big surprise, the book!!
The book has arrived. I could not wait to get inside my apartment so I could have a look at it. I tore up the package and smiled widely when I saw the cover.
I was a bit worried there would be typos in the book. I did spellcheck it twice, but sometimes you just turn blind. Maybe I should’ve let a friend look over it? Of course I saw some typos. I’ve spotted a few. The worst one that was I’ve said she’s born in ’78! Doh! It’s ’79! That’a bit annoying, but what can I do?
Apart from the few typos, the book is great. I love it. I hope Linda will love it too. I’m so eager to give it to her, I could go home tomorrow and deliver it. But I have to wait. Her birthday isn’t until next week (wednesday).
The book is not the only thing that arrived today. So did the sun! Horray for that! I went out on a stroll after work, taking some pictures. It was nice to finally be able to catch some sun / light in my photos again. It seems like such a long time since I’ve been able to do that!
This is one of the shots I took. The colors are a bit unusual for me, but that’s one thing that I like with this shot. This will be found at flickr, but not today. I’m too tired to upload it. And I’ve already uploaded one picture today.
I’m planning to create a new set on lukcytown.no. Well, it’s two actually when I come think of it.
- A black and white set. I got inspired by a flickr-buddy named Alice. The takes only black and white pictures. I find pictures in black and white beautiful. If you have a dull colored picture, you can easily make it better by turning it into black and white. I’m not going to call this set black and white, because that’s so ordinary and boring and far from what I am ;) I’m gonna call it ‘not color’.
- A set with the cards I’ve created. I always show you here what cards I’ve made. I think it’s time to put them on my webiste.
It will take some time to organize this. The boring part is to downsize them to the right size; one set with 600 x 400 pixels and one set with thumbnails that are 75 x 75 pixels. Maybe I’ll start the process tomorrow. We’ll see how the day turns out.
