Anne says at RevGals:
Whether or not we make resolutions with the new year, we all transition to a new, physical calendar. In recent years my favorite wall calendar is called Pooped Puppies, a monthly collection of sleepy, or sleeping, pups that can’t help but evoke an “awwwww.” for many years my godmother gave me a flat, weekly desk calendar that featured National Geographic photos. One of the great things about calendars is that for each of us they fulfill the “form and function” requirement–a place to indulge an interest while serving a purpose.
For today’s FF, tell us about five calendar themes that you like to see hanging on your walls or going with you to appointments, or that you WISH existed to adorn and accompany your life.
1. My new 2014 office calendar is "Dogs Doing Yoga"
here is a selection. :) This is over my desk and not really convenient to write on, but I love the photos and it gives me handy calendar reference.
2. My home calendar doesn't have a photo theme, just very large grids for each day. It will be useful for filling in class assignments, doctor appointments, meetings, etc. Also, it's the place I put the little stickers to remind me that I need to give the dogs their heartworm meds...!
3. I had a Georgia O'Keefe calendar years ago that I adored:
4. For the last two years, my city has sent a calendar in the mail with all the information on garbage and recycling pickups, city events, etc. It's been exceptionally useful, but I haven't received one yet, so I guess I won't. Boo!
5. And finally, probably my favorite calendars have been ones that family members have compiled with photos of reunions or family members. My brother Don's family did a great one a few years ago, and my sister Nancy had one with her kids on it. I LOVE, LOVE those. :)
oh, and a bonus? As a MONSTER church geek, I always get (from somewhere) an Episcopal Kalendar. It looks like this:
it has all the liturgical colors/seasons, and on the back is the lectionary for each day and Sunday. :)
Because that's how I roll, y'all.
