Every year I am given free calendars by my bank, my employer, or specialty store. I usually kept the prettiest one out (most likely with dog pictures) and put the rest in a drawer.
But this year I've decided to put the others to use.
2010 calendars are beginning to make an appearance and I'm going to make specific ones do special duty.
One calendar will be used to monitor weather. While I might put major weather occurrences in my journal, quickly penciling in the temp and rain chances is a good reference for next year when you decide to sow, reap or plan for major events. If you discover that most of October was rainy in 2009, you'll try to plan around the rainy season for next year.
Another calendar is to remind me when I gave the dogs their heartworm and flea preventative. I generally try to do this at the beginning of the month, but in the past due to life's interruptions, meds were delivered later.
And I don't need to remind you ladies about charting your menses, either to get pregnant or avoid it. It's good practice even when you're on the pill since it gives you a barometer of your health.
One of my neighbors always kept a calendar with notes about impending doctor visits.
Put your calendars to work. And here's a freebie from Eukanuba. Go to their site and get a free 2010 calendar mailed to you. (the button is on the right side of the content box)
Do you use your calendars to record events?
