I have three new calendars this year. One that came free with a magazine and two that I bought on purpose because I just couldn't resist them.
On the first Tuesday of each month, I will show you the pictures on that month's page.
Here are the January pictures.
this is the calendar that came free with the "Country Home Ideas" magazine. I've hung this calendar in my lounge room, close to my table, but far enough behind that I have to actually get my bum off the chair if I want to check anything on any of the dates.
See? I'm exercising! Well, sort of (*~*)
this is the January page of my kitchen calendar. I simply couldn't resist buying something titled 'violentveg.com'
Two potato head policemen standing over a dead ear of corn. The words read, "Looks like there's a cereal killer on the loose Wilkins"
At the end of December 2016, all of these are getting framed and hung on the kitchen wall!
They'll be grouped in three rows of four.
these next photos are all the same calendar, it hangs in my bathroom, close to the loo for easy reading, but high enough to be out of the way.
Pretending to be a Normal Person Day After Day is Totally Exhausting.
Designed by Suzy Toronto, this one practically jumped off the newsagent stand into my waiting hands. I loved it without even opening the pages. I had to have it!
Here are the words:
I'll print them below in case you can't see them well enough.
"William Shakespeare wrote,
'This above all:
to thine own self be true.'
Boy, did he nail it on the head!
A lot of us go through phases
where we think we have to be,
act, and look like everyone else
in order to fit in.
I tried it, and it didn't work.
Now I realize,
God doesn't want an orchestra
of identical instruments
all playing the same tune.
so I let go of the status quo
and decided to just be me.
Besides, pretending to be
a normal person
day after day is exhausting!
