Back to blogging!

Yeeeess!!!! I'm still alive.... even though I stopped writing for a while.
After a few comments from my grandma and my mum (my personal fan club) I decided that one of my 2008 commitments would be to start blogging again... and here I am :)

In the next weeks I will try to summarize the many things that happened in the past months... starting from :


July 2008

After my wonderful yard sale, with Kamala and Sharon, who helped me out bringing me some costumers and Tim Hortons coffee, I sold out almost everything. The good bye party was a very nice event and I was happy to see there many of the people who I consider my Canadian family and who made my stay in North America a very special one!

Thursday was my last day at work. After that, I went home and spent all the afternoon and night packing in order to leave my room empty and ready for the next tenant.

Originally I was supposed to leave Ottawa by Greyhound on Thursday evening.... in reality I left on Friday July the 31st at 7am. I arrived to Toronto where I could take this interesting picture (look closely if you don't see anything special.... )
After that I went to have lunch with Lukas....and to the airport! We were ready to leave for Cuba!!!!! But that is the August highlight....therefore the next post!

Hi Maura!

Thanks for your comment! Actually I just created the image on Adobe Illustrator... I first created a big base with a picture of the grass (actually many pictures pasted together one next to the other) and then started pasting other pictures etc.
The picture of the map, the album and the little coins were available in the apple iWeb (i think that's the name of the softwate but I can check if you want) :)
I hope this info will be helpful :)

ah! important point: once you created the image, you have to upload it on your blog (but without publishing it). After that you go in the blog's template and add the image's file name: this is how it looks in html:

body {
background:url("http://manygreatideas.nomadlife.org/uploaded_images/sfondofotoperblog2-787966.jpg") repeat ;
margin:0;
padding:20px 10px;
text-align:center;
font:x-small/1.5em "Trebuchet MS",Verdana,Arial,Sans-serif;
color:#333;
font-size/* */:/**/small;
font-size: /**/small;
}
