AtoZ Blogging Challenge/”N”

Happy Tuesday, AtoZer’s.  Today’s letter is, “N” which I have a couple of different uses for in my daily planner.  (N)otes are the quick little thoughts, dates, thing I want to remember but don’t have the time to spend on them right there.  So I just jot it down on a post-it or piece of scrap paper and stick it in the day I wrote the note.  

When I go back to that day in the planner, I write it down on the appropriate date or put the thought where it goes permanently i.e. such as my commonplace book or my recipe planner.  I might also use the note w/a date on my, Running-to-do List or my 15 minute list. I keep my running-to-do list on the back of my Notes card.img_2579

If it doesn’t fit into any one of those categories, I also have a Notes/Index page in the front of each planner that I use.fullsizeoutput_4a3b

I realize this may all sound a bit complicated but when you have been doing it for awhile it’s just goes right into my planning shall I say concert…The instruments all work together and my days do make some beautiful music.  

I’m sorry this is a bit tardy, but yesterday was a beauty and I had to go out and enjoy it.  Blessings Blogger’s ❤  The letter “O” I will post tonight 😉    

AtoZ Blogging Challenge/”M”

Happy Monday Afternoon…I know, I know so I got a late start.  What can I say it’s Monday and it’s the letter “M” which it just so happens that’s the letter for the day, AtoZ2019Mwhich coincidentally I actually have 2 prompts for the letter, “M”  

The first one is my Monthly Section…I’ll tell you though my planner just keeps changing and changing, an evolution of sorts.  It’s very important to do that because life and planning as with all things if they don’t change and stay the same, it can become very boring and mundane.  Planner’s also, like people not changing, don’t grow and that’s not good.  Here of some of my monthly planner layouts…

The one right above is from my Daily Planner, Serena…I decided to not color in the lines for this layout and I really liked how it came out !!!  The other one to the top left is also Serena’s monthly layout for April & Spring.  It’s okay, but I’m not as happy with that one as February’s.  The other 2 monthly layouts are from the Mother Ship.  That what I use to create Serena’s monthly layout.  As you can see they are not as I guess busy…and here’s April’s monthly layout from my Mother Ship Plannerimg_2576

You can see I’m a bit behind, but I’m thinking it’s because of the AtoZ Challenge thing 😉

The next prompt I want to use for today’s letter AtoZ2019M

is my Daily section, which would be (M)onday   Here is what my layout looks like for today…(M)onday ❤img_2572

It wasn’t that great because well it really was (M)onday 😉  to the right of the Monday/Daily section is my dashboard.  I’m really not liking this monday at all…this picture will give you a better idea of how it should look.fullsizeoutput_4a3a

Usually one of my (M)antra’s for everyday and probably for life is right there…”WRITE IT DOWN, (M)AKE IT HAPPEN <3″  Happy (M)onday AtoZer’s, now onto “N”…

Song Lyric Sunday

Prompts for Song Lyric Sunday…“Freeze/Cold/Ice” which is totally appropriate for today, April in the Midwest.  5 Inches I think, R E A L L Y !!!  That’s what the husband said when he got up, and they just issued a, “Special Weather Statement”  Can we just have a little warm weather, please 😦  These were the pictures I took before it really got going and this is now…again Really 😦

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s hear it for Song Lyric Sunday !!!  It is as Cold As Ice, brrrrrrr

“Cold As Ice”

You’re as cold as ice
You’re willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you’ll pay the price, I knowI’ve seen it before
It happens all the time
You’re closing the door
You leave the world behindYou’re digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you’ll pay

You’re as cold as ice
You’re willing to sacrifice our love
You want Paradise
But someday you’ll pay the price
I know

I’ve seen it before
It happens all the time
You’re closing the door
You leave the world behind
You’re digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you’ll pay

Cold as ice, you know that you are
Cold, (cold) as, (as) ice,
As cold as ice to me
(Cold, cold cold) (as, as, as) (ice)

(Ooh, ooh, ooh, cold as, cold as ice)
(You’re as cold as icccce)
You’re as cold as ice
(Cold as icccce),
Cold as ice I know
(You’re as cold as icccce)
You’re as cold as ice
(Cold as iccce)
Cold as ice I know
(You’re as cold as icccce)
Oh yes I know
(Cold as icccce)
(You’re as cold as icccce)
You’re as cold as ice
(Cold as icccce)
Cold as ice I know
(You’re as cold as icccce)
Oh, yes I know
(Cold as icccce)

And in case anyone was wondering the forecast Hi for Tuesday is 70 degrees…Y A Y  Happy Palm Sunday and so starts Holy Week…Holy Thursday/Last Supper…Good Friday/The day Jesus Died for all of us…Easter Sunday/Jesus Rose again to give us all eternal life ❤   

AtoZBlogging Challenge/”L”

Happy, Happy Saturday and the #AtoZBloggingChallenge   Today’s letter is, “L” and I am just so thrilled.  I just learned how to do a pingback, Y A Y !!!!  It was just as exciting as when I learned to make a link.  I know, I’m really showing my age and my, “Low Tech Abilities” but I don’t care because I learned how to do a PINGBACK !!!  Y A Y for me.

Now onto the letter for the day “L” is for (L)istersgottalist.  This really isn’t a section in my planner, but I do make lists in Serena, my Daily Planner.  This is Cori’s baby, and I just love it because it get’s its own TN.  Listing is something I love to do and she makes it fun ❤  Here are some pictures of my TN’s for (L)istersgottalist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m giving you the link for her website and my disclaimer again I make no money off this if you use the link or just go to the site.  It’s really beautiful and again, I look so forward to all of her monthly planner supplies.  

Prompts >> Listers Designer – Girl Friday Edition April 2019

I really love the listing thing and I found a book, “What’s on Your Top 10 List.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Saturday Evening AtoZer’s  Hopefully you are having a great weekend.  Challenge on ❤ and if your not, “Make a List 😉 . “

 

#SoSC

First time doing this…Prompt for today, “Lip.” “This post is part of SoCS:  My lips have an “X” marks the spot.  Really it does.  Back in the early 60’s probably when I was around 1 or 2 years old, and just learning to walk I did what probably most toddler’s do and fell right into the corner of the Coffee Table.  Predictably it was a trip to the ER, (Mom) was an RN so she knew it was going to need stitches.  

They didn’t care so much back then about leaving scars on your face and from the looks of it the stitched it up with a fish hook.  I had a passel of children 3 boys and 1 girl who all, I think at one time or another ended up in the ER getting stitched up from a corner something.  You really can’t see any of those scars at all.  My scar is huge, a big, “X” right on the corner of my lip.  Connie, the youngest son has a divet in his forehead, but that wasn’t a cut.  Some little kid threw a toy car at him and it hit him right in the head so the fixing of that was not a precise as the other ones.

The needles they used on the kids when they were getting stitched up were these micro needles.  You could hardly even see them, or if the cut was strait enough they just would glue it.  

I’m proud of what I call my battle scars.  I also was born with a strawberry birthmark on the left side of my face.  It’s not quite as bad as some that I have seen, but it’s definitely there.  In fact every time I go to the doctor, (and it’s the same doctor) he asks what happened to the side of my face.  I usually just say the same thing, “I was born with it.  It’s a birthmark 😉 .”  Sometimes I might make up some stupid story, and then he remembers oh right it’s your birthmark.

I always tell the husband if I ever go missing and they find a body somewhere, just check for the birthmark and you’ll know it’s me ❤  Let’s hope that never happens.  Interesting doing this challenge SoCS, you end up somewhere totally away from the prompt.  It was, “Lips,” remember.  Happy SoCSaturdy ❤  I’m still working on AtoZ letter, “L” and no Lips wouldn’t go with my planner theme.  Then it’s Song Lyric Sunday tomorrow so looks like I’m going to be blogging a lot for the next 2 days.  I still have to catch up with the letters, “H & I” for the AtoZ challenge.  Enjoy the evening, Happy Weekend ❤ 

AtoZ Blogging Challenge/”K”

Happy Friday, AtoZer’s…I’m loving all the post’s for AtoZ, what a wonderfully diverse challenge ❤  I am learning so much following all the different Challenger’s participating…

I must say using this topic (Planner’s)is getting a little bit challenging, ah but that’s why they call it a Challenge 😉  Today’s letter is “K” and I’m going to blog about Planner (K)its…My favorite one is Christy’s, The Planner Society.  I can’t say enough great things about her kit. I know I have put a picture of the kit and the link up but it really does deserve some more blog time !!!

This is the kit for March/April.  She has a bi-monthly subscription.  She use to do it every month but then she just made the (K)its bigger and better and turned it into 1 kit every other month.  I thought I was going to not like that very much, as I would miss out on my monthly kit fix 😉 , but as it worked out I get so much more done with the one kit (I’m signed up for 3 kits,OMG) and get to use it all.   I’m pretty sure I could get a show for hoarding planner supplies (mostly Christy’s) or I could use an Planner (K)it Intervention 😉  

I must show you what I got from The Planner Society yesterday and I’m pretty sure it’s going to turn into one of my most cherished planner’s ❤ !!!  I just love, love, love that little planner girl ❤  You can see the extra wash, box stickers and planner stickers ❤  

 

 

 

 

 

 

https://www.theplannersociety.com/subscriptions

This is the link you can use to sign up for your own kit subscriptions…(Disclaimer  I don’t get any commission from the sales of her supplies)  I think that if you are interested in starting a planner, this would be the best place to begin.  She has many different options in her subscriptions.   She has extra add on’s that I have too, ie washi tape, box stickers, and planner stickers.  My (K)its are complete and they are soooo pretty.

I am showing you all of the supplies that I use to help you set up your planner, but remember and this is really what is so important about planning.  Don’t loose sight of what I use my planner for…Writing it Down, Making it Happen.  When I write it down it gets done more times than not !!!  It never needs to be charged or looses a charge.  No one can hack into it.  It’s a hard copy and archival safe (thank you, Christy)…and for some reason, I never lose it like I lose my phone or forget it…Most importantly, it makes my day sooo pretty 😉 This is how I look forward to the day ❤

My featured picture is today’s layout using April’s Planner Society (K)it…Happy Friday ❤  Blessings Bloggers

 

AtoZ Blogging Challenge/”J”

Good Thursday morning AtoZer’s.  How’s your challenge going ?? I know I need to play catch up a bit, so I’ll just wait for Sunday and I’m pretty sure today is the letter “J”.

(J)anuary  is a really great month for a planner.   A brand new year with a blank planner.  It really is like Planner Heaven.  So much to do and plan.

I have stuck with the same daily planner for a couple of years now.  Franklin Covey’s, “La Vie En Rose.” She’s my Serena.  

Beautius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I use a Websterspages A5 planner for what I call the, “Mother Ship.” That’s where I plan the month and then transfer to my daily planner…
