Calendar Journal

I like to jot things down through the year on a calendar. Last year, I bought a quarterly calendar and it had a lot of room to write things where the date was. Then in April of last year I decided to go with the binder and filler pages. I enjoyed it and it had a lot of room to add pages if need be.

This year, I bought the binder again. I was surprised the store no longer carried the calendar refill. I pondered for the last week of what I wanted to do. I know I could have gone to an office supply store or order it online but my mind was thinking go more creative. What do I do but head to Pinterest for ideas. 🙂

Lots of neat free printables to choose from. 🙂

The one’s I chose.

I am pretty happy with them so far. Eventually, I want to make my own. I like doing that kind of stuff. 🙂

I put them in three sections.

I used my teddy bear stationery cut down to size. I have tons of stationery because we once had a small office and computer store. I am eager to get it used up so I can justify buying new stuff. LOL (I keep telling myself it needs all used up first but now I do have room for more so just maybe I can buy a couple new ones. 🙂 )

This is the front cover. 🙂

I figure the calendar is the perfect way to know what year the journal is. 🙂

The reason I use the smaller binder is when I carry my big purse I can place it in it. Plus, the smaller size uses less ink to print. 🙂 lol

How do you organize your year?

I had a good hair day today so I am going to post my selfie for the month. LOL

20160112_144024 I chopped my hair about a month ago. She actually cut more than I wanted to but I like it ok. It will grow. I am thinking I want some color to it. I might even go brave with a hint of teal. ???? It will be a few months pondering time. 🙂

Its My Birfday.

My birthday selfie!
I’m enjoying a quiet day at home. I read a bit this morning. I enjoyed a glass of Pepsi, but thinking about getting a fountain pop. And maybe a cookie, yea.
The oldest son and I were going to go to a movie but saw they don’t offer early times in winter. Darn it. So thinking cheap night movie with all three boys but can we decide on a movie. I’ll get back to you on that one.

Unfortunately, hubby and daughter can not be here but maybe see them this weekend. Yay! Hubby for sure as long as the winter storms do not prevent that. Life of a trucker.

Enjoying all the happy birthdays on social medias. It makes it not so lonely. I sure miss my grandparents and my dad today. Grandma always made birthdays special. One of these days I hope to spend it with my mom. I didn’t grow up with her but we are OK. I’m not sad about it anymore. I understand better as an adult. And also miss my Aunt Mary’s homemade cakes. Yum.

I do so enjoy spending it with my kids and hubby when we can.

Happy birthday to anyone who has the same birthday!
