    A Calendar For Every Room

    So I have to admit that I went a little nuts when it came to buying calendars for 2005. I usually get them at www.lang.com where they have a large variety of different types. For the bedroom I got “The Love Of Cats” calendar which has an adorable painting by Sue Ellen Ross on each month.

    For the bathroom I got a calendar called “Cats In The Sun”. For the dining room I got the “Welcome Home Calendar” and I got one more calendar called “The Four Seasons Calendar” which I had no idea where to put. Herman came up with a great idea of putting that calendar in the living room, I must admit it looks good.

    I also got a Humane Society calendar which went in the back porch. And last but not least I got a page a day cat calendar for my computer desk.

    Of course, Herman has his own calendar upstairs in what he calls his office. I call it the balcony. The calendar he has up there is of barns. I think it’s of old Dutch barns, one of which was his that he donated to the Schenectady Historical Society.

    What was really neat about that is the fact that they took the barn down timber by timber and put it back up in Rotterdam Junction. We were invited to go to the opening of the barn and it was quite exciting seeing the old barn back up in one piece.

    So back to my calendar buying for 2005. Even though I purchased mine online, I’m sure you can find calendars locally. This goes back to my shopping online vs locally. I guess it would be cheaper to buy calendars locally but I really enjoyed going online to do it. Plus I don’t know if you could get the calendars that I’ve gotten locally. I’m guessing no.

    If you don’t feel like shopping for calendars you could do what my aide Terry does. She simply waits for the calendars from the bank and the fuel company as well as local insurance companies and The Humane Society just to name a few.

    Whether you shop for calendars or wait for freebies like my aide does enjoy each day as it comes.
