May and June Daily Journaling

 

Here it is….the first day of another month, almost half way through the year 2012!  Where does the time go?  For me it is time, once again, to share my journal pages with Kate and friends at The Kathryn Wheel.

I can tell you that keeping a daily journal helps you recall some of those moments that have passed.  Years ago, I started keeping sporadic garden notes in journals.  Those garden journals have morphed into daily journaling, like this one from May.

IMG_2405 May was a busy month!  Besides notes about what I do each day, I like to keep some of the memorabilia I collect along the way in my journal and in the case of the fold out page “wait….there’s more”, I still use this as a garden journal so when the page is open….

this is where I keep track of when and where  I planted certain plants and seeds or when I fertilized the roses or sprayed the weeds.  This keeps the information in one place for easy reference through out the summer.

 

 

My journal is not “just another pretty face”…..she earns her keep!

May was a dud for the calendar journal. But now I think I know what I like and how I'll do it. You are inspiring and I'm limping along behind ya! Yours is so very cool!

You create the most colorful journals. I love what you do, but I don't like to write that much. I'm glad you do (grin). These are simply gorgeous. Like you, I keep track of things like when I planted something, or even when I changed my water filter. It's a great reference, isn't it?

That little message, 'wait, there's more!' just cracked me up! fun way to point out the flap (and perhaps indirectly make fun of those obnoxious tv commercials?) love the colors and textures...
