After a year of blogging, I decided I wanted to find a way to print my blogs to book format. After doing a bit of research, I found a site called Blog To Print.

The format was fairly simple to use, although I had to add some pics to my blogs to keep the last page of each entry from being a few lines of text and then emptiness. This was because I chose to have page breaks instead of allowing each post to run into the next.

A table of contents with the title of each post was created automatically. No work on my part. WooHoo! I did have one that I had a hard time getting to show up, but their help option offered the correct solution for me.

They had a pretty good selection of cover options and sizes, and it was a pretty friendly program to move through. My book came out to be about 1/2 inch thick, with 100 posts of average length.

The price was reasonable for the book I received. I know, cuz I have ordered over 20 printed photo albums in my life. And, I was thrilled when I saw the quality of the paper and cover! Nice job Blog to Print! I recommend them.


Too early…

My day began much earlier than I had hoped it would with a dry, asthmatic cough. Not mine, our cat’s. When the house temperature drops to its coldest around 4am, it seems to trigger the cough. I gave up trying to sleep by five and decided to do something to help. This year the cough has been considerably less than in past years. I pulled out my handy homeopathy remedy binder and read up on the different asthmatic issues. After finding a spray bottle, I mixed the chosen remedy, then lovingly sprayed her with it. Usually over the top of the head so it doesn’t go directly in the face. I will probably use it again tonight before bed and hopefully hat will stave off a four o’clock episode. A day too late, since I could have slept in this morning, but have to be at our property early tomorrow to work on wiring our electrical panel.

C’est la vie.

To make the best of it, and make this “the best day ever”, I am going to eat breakfast alone, cuddle in the couch with the cat, blog, make a set of tzitzit (tassels worn on the corners of clothing to remind us to obey God’s instructions for living) for our granddaughter, then read my bible until I drop off again. Our granddaughter has been asking for a set, so I bought embroidery thread in her favorite colors. A day in jammies, cuddles with a cat, reading my favorite book with my favorite person. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Hope you have “the best day ever!”
