AlphabeThursday - J is for January

When I think of the calendar, my mind starts with the month of January.  The first month of the year, the month that we are in currently, my birthday’s month.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I have calendars everywhere.  And I see January all over the place.  There’s a cloth calendar that hangs on my wall, right next to my computer, at home.  A very handy place.



Then on my computer there are two or three calendars.  The one that I like the best in my Goggle calendar.  It’s on the screen at work whenever I’m there – half my life!  I like to look at the calendar by the whole month, not one week or day at a time.  I took this photo mid-month; lots of people were on vacation at the beginning of the month, for the holidays.  I recommend this calendar if you’re trying to schedule more than one person.  It would probably work for everybody at home too.  


I can expect a Sierra Club calendar every year with great photographs, a gift from my brother.  Since there are so many calendars around the house, I decided to put this one under my Roku box, out in the living room.  As the weeks roll by, I turn the pages and get to see a new photograph.


This is probably the most useful calendar I have.   I make a table with Mircosoft Word, and fit the days in the boxes.  Then the month; It’s January!  I print it out on a sheet of paper and keep track of my bills.  Yes, call me an organizational freak; I know I am.  But it works very well and is easy to do.  I use Word tables all the time – at work and at home.   


My overall favorite calendar is in my art journal.  I make a new one every month.  Right now, you can see I'm in the middle of January.  There is a big different between a new calendar, with only geometric lines, and a colorful mosaic when the month is finished.  This calendar keeps me doing a little bit of artwork everyday, even if I don’t have time or the inclination.

This month is not my favorite because I am very sensitive to cold. But congratulations on your birthday!

This is the first year where we don't have several calendars hanging all over the house. I like your art journal calendar the best. It has my hands itching to do one.

The art calendar would be my favourite too! I'm a bit of a calendar junkie - over the computer in the kitchen, a diary beside my laptop.....
