Three months and a day since I last posted

I cannot believe how long it has been since I blogged...I first stopped because we were having Lorelei for two weeks.  And though I could probably have found time to post a few pics, I would not have had time to return visits.

The rest of the time you don't want to hear about--colds, flu, and maybe just pure old laziness part of the time.

We did not have Christmas till the day before New Years...
************
Do any of you remember getting calendars like the one above?  I don't remember where I got the image from.  It is not mine.  I would not mind having this kind of calendar again.  I love all the big, bold numbers.  I love all the information give such as sunrise and sunset times, phases of the moon...and I don't even remember all that was given on them. 

I know the ones we used to get had what sign of the moon was in...don't asked me to explain that.  I just know that mom always wanted to wean calves during a certain sign...either when it was going to legs or to ankles(?) or to feet...whether you believe it or not, it really worked.  I can remember mom noticing when a neighbor had weaned their calves in the wrong sign, and them bawling and bawling

The calendar used to predict the weather.  I can so remember looking ahead and seeing when snow was predicted and hoping they were right.  Oh, how we wanted it to snow....anything to get out of school.  Besides the fact we liked to be out in it.

No I have never had a calender like this one. Great to see you blogging again but I know what I would rather be doing if I had my granddaughter staying with me :)

So good to have you back! Yes, a friend gave me one and I still have it. I kept it even though it was years ago!

Isn't it amazing the excuses you can think of to procrastinate! If you ever need any I have a ton, I can easily lend you a few. ;o)

Glad you're back.

One of the banks in our small town gives their customers a calendar with the big bold numbers much like this.
It is good to see you back, Rose. Take care and have a nice week!

Happy New Year, Rose, and nice to see you back in blog land. :)

I would imagine my folks had calendars like that but I can't say I remember seeing them. I would like seeing the information but I also need spaces to write stuff, too.

Hope your year is starting out well!

I remember these from the distant past, before internet calendars and email calendars.. they used to hang in general stores and places like that. we never had one but is saw them around. now we can look up all of that with a few strokes of the keys. welcome back.

I remember those calendars, but I especially remember the Almanac...always a must at the first of the year! Welcome back.

I certainly missed you, but we all need a break from our blogging every now and then. Happy New Year!

We ALWAYS had a calendar like this. My Dad got them from the bank. This year my Step-dad picked one up for me when he got his at his local hardware store. They do bring back memories.
