The subject of notebooks and journaling came up the other day. I never thought to write about it as it seemed a mundane subject. But when interest was expressed I thought – why not?
For what it's worth, I think it's mainly women who have a fascination with notebooks. Not to stereotype - I just don't find males are that interested in office supplies - LOL.
One of the things that keeps me organized is a decent notebook. I actually have more than one for different projects but there are only two I use for daily reminders and lists.
Embarrassingly enough……..I can’t stop acquiring them. I mean, you can always use a notebook, right?
My larger notebook has lists and ideas. Things I need to do, purchase, reminders of weekly events and linkups on blogs and things like this.
The small pink one that rides in my purse is more of a diary. What we eat, menus, books we are reading, movies……you get the idea. It's great for when I make a grocery list and menu planning ideas.
Also, I write down the names of books I want to read and if I saw it on someone’s website, I note where the recommendation came from in the event I review it. Then I can link back or give a mention.
Another constant on one of my lists is about crochet hooks I own. How many times in the past have I dithered about which size to buy, only to find I have duplicated it….again.
Honestly, since I discovered the Clover bamboo from Japan I probably won’t buy another brand since I have so many of the other ergonomic types.
And now on to Social Media ...............
Every blue moon I need a break from social media. Once I tire of it and find I am not keeping up, I know it’s time to deactivate for a while.
Over a year ago I deleted my Twitter account and turned out I regretted it. By the time I decided I wanted it back, it was too late. Completely purged. So I started a new one but the interest isn’t strong now. And as I said, when you don’t check in on it the feed seems unmanageable.
(I'm not on all of these above)
I say this as an announcement so no one thinks I have “dumped” them when I finally get around to deactivating. They need hibernation for a bit so, if I am not around, you were not dumped.
That’s about all I have to say today. We have been eating well, continuing to walk each morning, reading and watching movies. I’m almost done with a scarf that I have been crocheting off and on for a while. I know Doug would love for the weather to be decent so he can get a telescope out. It's been rainy and now it's cold.
Oh! Doug bought me this cool loom which should assist me in making hats. I am very excited about that and hope I’m not too dense to figure out the instructions.
Updates will be forthcoming.
PS - I am cross posting this to Novel Meals as I have two followers that read both sites.
