It’s that time of year again folks. The time to fill out your 2020 planner/agenda.
I’m now looking through my 2019 calendar. I’m reminded of the important people and events in my life as I’m jotting down in my new planner the addresses, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. It’s also the time I reflect on events, accomplishments and losses experienced.
With my 2020 planner, my thoughts turn to the future. What dates need to be marked? What travel do I want to happen? What goals will I set? What do I want for myself for the upcoming year??? A new year of possibilities is before us.
So you can see, my planner choice is important. Last year I bought a ClareV and it served me well. I chose this year’s planner from Anthropologie. My only requirement for my planners: a spiral binding. (Book type binding never make it through the year for me.)
By the way, my pen is important too. I like to use the same pen throughout the year. My personal favorite is the Sharpie fine point pen. (Insert heart emoji)
I haven’t read Bukowski since my 20’s. I wasn’t sure if he would still appeal to me. It turns out I will forever love him. Simple sentences perfectly written of his gritty, drunken, day to day life. Genius!
I’ll be serving this Limoncello syrup along with some fresh fruit for Christmas, but I can easily think of multiple ways to use it. It literally took about 10 minutes to make. This syrup tastes deliciously sweet with a bit of kick and looks pretty in this small bottle I purchased.
It’s so easy, I feel a little silly writing out a recipe for it.
Heat 1/4 fresh lemon juice and 3/4 sugar in the microwave or stovetop until the sugar is dissolved. (Careful it doesn’t overflow in the microwave.)
This French book was an overnight success when written and is still an iconic book. The writer was only 18 years old when she wrote it.
Seventeen year old Cecile is staying with her handsome bachelor father in the French Riviera for the summer. She is used to seeing her father with many women, but then he decides to get married. Cecile begins to have conflicting emotions and the devious planning begins as well.
