Calendars for the New Year

One of my best memories of New Year's Day was buying a new calendar or weekly planner and transfering the important dates from one year to the next. It was a chance to reflect on the past year, to think about the people and happenings of that year. Well, I still do love calendars. Every year I request calendars from my family on my Christmas list. This year, my friend Brenda at Quilting Cowgirl gave me a beautiful calendar from That Patchwork Place. It is living in my sewing room. It's already open to January with a stunning winter quilt.

 My boys gave me Dachshund calendars. Two different Dachshund calendars to be exact. One is now living in our master bathroom. Each day has pictures of different Doxies. Michael, my son, has a January birthday. The doxie on his date, January 21st looks lots like our Rusty. The second Doxie calendar will live in my office at school. It has big numbers that I can see from my computer.

I also like to have a calendar on our refrigerator. Everyone in the family adds their schedule to the dates so we can keep up with each other. The Chick-Fil-A cow calendar has become our favorite for this job. The coupons on the calendar come in handy, too.
  I also have a PDA that I carry in my purse. It's great for scheduling appointments without having to carry a big planner around. The planner exists, too. It lives in my school bookbag.

Guess, I have a calendar obsession, too.

so far your obsessions are rather mild ones!!! Have you tried to download Bonnie's step one? I am having problems getting the thing to not chop off directions. Just call me computer challenged!

I like calendars too - I have one down at my computer desk...a google calendar that I can reach from any computer, and a great one on my iPhone...I just wish I could get the google calender on the iPhone.

I'm not much into calendars but we did end up with a couple of dachshund calendars.
