Okay--you're going to laugh, but I never got to those final Christmas cards. Because I have been feeling so much better by comparison to the past couple of years...well, I mainly just kept working away on the apartment all week. Couldn't help myself--lol! Do you know how long it has been since I have had the energy to even be antsy!? ROFL! So, I still have several cards to finish up and mail off--BUT--I think I can still meet my own personal deadline of the first week in December, so that would still be a win in my book. :)
There are different numbers of partridges this past week that come to the Critter Cafe. Definitely more than one covey out there now.
...sorting through bins and stacks and boxes...off and on all week.
Wednesday I baked fish, chicken, brownies and made some turkey burgers, too. Leah dropped off what I had for the drive-up pickups at Target and Cashwise...also a new routine.
Thursday--end of the month stuff. Got my bullet journal ready for December, banking, and rent check to the office drop box. Got basically done with the bedroom folding tables.
Now that it is colder, I notice Allie sleeps almost all afternoon on the table in the bedroom...almost every single day. And quite deeply, too. :)
Friday Dagan brought me again to the clinic for labwork. I worked a lot of that day to finish off the mess I had left to sort from the bedroom folding tables that I had drug out all over the kitchen--because McFamily was coming over Saturday afternoon to work on the "Leah List".
For my 2023 experiment I have been using this Jumping Fox binder......and this refill I found that fit the bill for what I used to make for myself. Close enough.
A decent sized monthly calendar...
...with a weekly two page spread. I wasn't sure I could get used to my extra insert page being stuck into the first week of the month like this...
...but I have gotten used to it after an entire year of using it. I also wanted a refill that had full sized sections for every day of the week and not smaller ones for Saturday and Sunday.
This year I found a new mini-binder that was right up my alley, eh? A rainbow of colors!
Trying to find a refill for a three ring mini-binder wasn't easy. (Couldn't find the one I used this year.) But a seven hole refill fit perfectly. I found a colorful one!
It looks like it is made by the same company as far as the layout goes. Perfect!
These days I only have to fill out all the information on my insert page every month. Used to take me so much time and effort (Leah, too) that I got to dreading it. I am loving the premade refills, I tell you.
As long as this works for me, I am one happy camper! Whoohoo!
Anyways, Dagan and Leah did a lot of things for me while the boys watched Walking With Dinosaurs (old one from 1999) and The Secret Life of Pets (Netflix). Leah cut my hair and made the binder pages. She and Dagan moved the other big box I had finished packing in the bedroom up on to the U-Haul wall.
