I’m going to try to join in with Julie’s very fun blog and add in another journal – the Month in Numbers. Here is January from a newbie! 🙂
I just found this last night so didn’t know to pay attention to the Communal Counts.
A) New things I tried: 2
- shopping for carpet in a decorating store
- wearing a fur hat — warm, happy, proud
B) How much I paid for a loaf of bread this month: $2.99 for a regular loaf of 12-grain bread at the grocery store
Read 219 pages in a book – Something More by Catherine Marshall. It was published in 1974! (I’m NOT a reader so this is stunning that I’ve nearly finished one book in one month.)
I am keeping 8 journals — in my A5 Fuchsia Filofax: a Five-Year Journal, a daily farm & family life journal, 365/30 Lists (a list per day, per month), & to-do’s to Ta-Da’s! Here on my blog will be: my month in numbers that I hope to make into mixed media art journals in various forms. I also have a personal journal. On my tablet that syncs with my phone, I have a running journal of appointments, special days, menus (counting as 1 journal), and my exercise log (counting as 1 journal).
I went to the fitness center to do water aerobics only 4 times. (too much weather!)
We missed mail delivery because of snow 4 times because of too much snow.
Used 2 gallons of paint for 2 coats of paint to the ceiling in JP’s room. Installed 1 new ceiling fan & light. (cover of bulbs isn’t on yet as I think I’ll go with one step brighter bulbs)
We received 1 letter – he is on 2 lists (Dean’s list & Chancellor’s list) – for a 4.0 grade for fall of 2013! Two proud parents. 🙂
I hope you check out the Month in Numbers list that is growing on her blog. There are several fun blogs already linked in the comments section.
