Flippin'


I don't know about you but me?

The older I get the more reluctant I am to flip the flippin' calendar on to the next month. This is the one that faces me, hanging on the centre column of my two office windows. A gift from a school-friend in Dublin every year. The picture has Kylemore Abbey in Connemara on it, with the boat in the foreground.

My big formal one in the living room for July features a photo of mine (and a rather nice blurb about moi), so I'd like to keep it stuck in July, but visitors might wonder as to my braggadocio quotient. Humility is far more attractive.

Even though August is quite a lovely month, lots of plans and events and even travel. But still.

I'm not flippin' ready, am I.

Flippin' tempus fugiting 'n all.

  1. I solved the flipping calendar problem a few years ago. I no longer hang a paper one on a wall. I use my phone and a shared online one with Elly.... She likes to keep tabs on me! ;)

  2. Tried the virtual ones, GM and can't seem to enjoy them at all. Same with address books. I've lost too much data.

    I am highly visual, so I like to see the whole month in front of me.

  3. Nice quotes about oneself are to be savoured and kept, I think. I've been to, and run, workshops where everyone has a card at the end and each participant gets to write some appreciation for other participants. In my bad black dog days, I get mine out and read how wonderful I am! And then I'm tickled pink.

    It's lovely that you have something to remind you how wonderful you are. I know, I don't know you, but your blog gives us all clues!

  5. I have my agenda which covers a week on two pages and I never get an idea of the month that goes by, or for that matter, the whole year. Time is almost an illusion to me. I only notice it in the change of seasons and the weather. I suppose it's not really all that important to me. I get older, sure, but it's pretty much irrelevant.

  6. Someone asked me yesterday how long I had been retired. I can't remember.

    The quote in question is way beyond my capacity, calling me a "master of the arts" for one. Puhleese.

    If only I could believe the blurbs about me!!

    They haven't seen me on my NO DO DAY. :)

    I'd like to be in your head space but I have to keep track of so many different things and engagements that my head would explode if I didn't look at some complete pictures sometimes.

    I live four miles north of Kylemore, Sask.
    This is the first time I've heard of the name used elsewhere.
    Interesting! Guess I should do some research.
    Shoulda woulda coulda.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
