Today’s quote in my Farmer’s Almanac calendar says:
How softly runs the afternoon
Beneath the billowy clouds of June!
~Charles Hanson Towne (American Poet – 1877-1949)
I really like this calendar from the Old Farmer’s Almanac. It’s full of neat tips for gardening, weather, outdoors and such, has great clip art and it’s pretty on my desk! I try to make "entries" into it everyday about the little things we have done, what we ate for dinner (helpful sometimes) and misc. information. For instance, I look back at February 21 of this year and the entry says:
KK – 9-3:00
Coffee with K
Work on SB Pages
Pasta Primavera – YUM!
and on January 21 of this year:
drive back – Jamie ->Boys babysitter
6:00 – reservations at Macaroni Joe’s
8:00 – "Odyssey" @ Ama. Glove News Center
Some of it is criptic but for the most part, I like looking back to see our "going’s on" around here. Some weeks I don’t enter and I invariably miss my little entries – I like proving the fact that I have been productive! 🙂
It’s also a great way to remember dates for your journaling on sb pages. If I know the month I did something, I just flip through for a little reminder about the day…easy! I’ve been doing this for about three years and really love flipping back through the years…
