serve different purposes for different people. In my case I use a
calendar to cover up the fuse box in the kitchen. It’s actually not a
fuse box per se, but in fact a breaker box. Either way it tends to
uglify the wall and the calendar is a great way to cover it up.
This all began when I considered going to Borders while I was at OfficeMax getting a light magenta cartridge for the Epson printer.
I envisioned the selection of calendars that they always have at Borders, and realized they were not likely to have the size actually need to cover up the breaker box.
It was there
and then that I remembered a discussion that I had earlier in the day
with Sandi about this very thing. I had remarked how easy it would be
for me just to go ahead and make my own calendar. Now that I had ink to
get the Epson printer up and running there was nothing stopping me from a do-it-yourself calendar.
After I finished printing a couple of pieces of sheet music for the LMP Trio, I began the calendar project.
I went and got ink instead of waiting for the ink I ordered to arrive
in the mail is that the mail itself would not be going out for a few
days, and that would delay the sheet music by at least a week. This way,
it might arrive before Marian takes off on her Phoenix trip.
So, I got
another cartridge and I’m very glad I did, for the Epson printer is
clearly superior to the HP that I use in a pinch, and it helped make
this calendar a doable project.
I got the calendar template from the iWork community
online. You just put in the year you want and it automatically works
out the days of the week for each month. It’s the first time I’ve used
the software called, “numbers” in the iWork programs. Now that I know how it works, I can already see how I’m going to redesign it for my particular needs.
The main thing
is that I’ve got something that covers up the breaker box and I can
also keep track of appointments and schedules. Life is good, and I’m
happy with the results of my do-it-yourself calendar.
