January complete and February ready in my never ending calendar

January has come and gone, and we are now into the first of February.  For the past four years I've followed Kate at The Kathryn Wheel (see link on my right sidebar), but since she has now gotten rid of the links on her blog, and since I'm not on Facebook or Flickr, this is the only place you will see my calendars.  They are not that good anyway, so I'm not going to stress if they don't go out to the world, but stay among my friends, blog buddies, and followers.

As I showed, the temperatures raised and fell faster than night followed day.  I even used that as my decoration for the month.  We had record highs four times, and several near record lows during January.  We went from bitterly cold to spring weather in a matter of days, twice, in fact, then back to snow and blowing just in time for the Super Bowl.

Speaking of Super Bowl, I usually have a party, invite a few friends over, and watch the commercials, eat till I waddle, and play the silly "the score at the end of each quarter" game.  But I am simply not feeling well enough to feed myself, much less host a bunch of rowdy friends.  So they will have to go elsewhere this year, because I've had to cancel on them.

It's also evident I'm sick, or my brain got ahead of my hand when I wrote the word "January."  Pretty poor start,

so I hope to do better during February.  As always, I will decorate this page as the month progresses.  And in case you didn't notice, I've also simplified my calendar this year, too.  No more individual dates.  I just cut a calendar page and glued it to my substrate which is the really sad, albeit expensive, journal I bought last year.

Thanks for visiting, since for the first time in four years, this is the ONLY place you will see my never ending calendar pages.  Enjoy the Super Bowl today if it's your "thing."  You'll find me sleeping with two cats most of the day (and night).

I too am sorry about Kate not having a link - I will still continue with my calendar though! I'm also taking part in Darcy's calendar challenge - something a bit different!! Love yours - that looks like some clever stamping!! Hope you feel better soon! Hugs, Chrisx

Hope you feel better. Not fun to be sick in winter, doldrums plus. Now that it's February, maybe the robins will show up and bring you some cheery get wells. xox

It is fun to see your calendar and how much you pack in every month. Don't blame you for making it a little simpler as I imagine it could get a little monotonous!

Hope you feel better. We are getting together with friends later but will be keep a look out for the snow. When the first flake falls, we are headed home. Prediction tomorrow is 6-10".

I really like what you did with your January page Elizabeth and I think adding your February page onto a substrate is a good idea.
Funnily enough, I couldn't find a link to join Kathryn Wheel this year so I am doing the calendar challenge that the Craft Barn started. I got a bit ahead of myself, not realising there were two 'items' to be used, but hey-ho, I enjoyed playing and will continue to join in. A monthly challenge is easier for me as I have my two weekly ones I want to keep up with as well aas my Anti Journal.
I do hope you start to feel better soon. That's twice in as many months isn't it? Such a shame. Do take care ((hugs))

I'm told that it's a good year to skip the Super Bowl, because the teams are lame & nobody -except those 2 teams' fans- cares at all; but I'm so sorry you're sick :( I know those cats (and maybe a cuppa tea) will ease you through the day. I hope you're better soon!

So sorry you are feeling so crummy!! Hope you get over this quickly and hope to see you Tuesday. :)

Your calendar pages serve as a nice mini journal and I really like the two tone stamp you used with stars E.
This morning you wrote on my Feb Second on the 2nd post: "Thanks for sharing this second look on the 2nd with us this month. I’m sorry I deleted the post from last month."
Also wondering HOW it can be February already!
oxo

You have me scratching my head wondering what you mean?

I'll be back tomorrow morning for T(ea) Tuesday, but I wanted to answer your question about the Grizzlies. I'm actually not much into sports except for Sumo wrestling, but we are _all_ Grizzlies fans here in Memphis lol It's a requirement for living here ;)
