I love the stickers Tal found in your new planner! They seem perfect for setting the mood for one’s day. What if a different variation offered polar opposites? Instead of “Make Today Count”, consider “Today’s Going To Be Awful”. Maybe not as a deliberate act, we (I) can self sabotage a new day. Being present helps remedy such inclinations.

Sometimes reading a new post such as this one conjures up having a “life docent” accompanied by Muses (of course) to set a tone and bring lightness to the errands of life. Even metaphorical ones. 😁

A bank open on Sunday?! Not an ATM?? 🤪 I must be dreaming.

I hope your day continues on the bright notes with which it’s begun. Woof! (A hello to Henny)

C'mon... The Midwest is behind the curve on everything... and we've had Sunday bank hours at grocery store branches for well over a decade.

This was actually about my shift from once thinking 'the world should shut down and take a breather on Sundays' to 'what does my opinion on this matter'? I've learned that gratitude is always more favorable than grumbling.

Thanks for the perspective on bank hours. It was perhaps 35 or 40 years ago the largest local bank installed teller functions in all our Publix Grocery stores. But the banking was not open on Sunday. That vanished entirely nearly 30 years ago. Fast food Chick Filet and the craft chain Hobby Lobby both are closed on Sunday.

FedEx made a totally non-essential delivery at our house today. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And Amazon was here a few weeks ago at 6 am???

My 3x5 card addiction got a little out of control. I calculated that I have about 6.7 years of cards. The obvious answer is, of course, to find more uses for them and use them more and make them more integral to my life, yippee!!! lol.

6.7 years? How does one calculate such a number?

Looking forward to hearing more about the Great Index Card Integration!

2,600 cards, 1 a day for 365. Huh, that's over 7 years... I don't normally do one on the weekend so that creates some slack though I do use them for pretty much everything. I used to have them on Amazon subscription and "my eyes were bigger than my appetite"

T-shirt: “I waited and stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.” 😁

Your sticker shot had "Meeting" "Meeting" Meeting" "Meeting" one right after another. I had flashbacks to my working life! 🙀

Okay... lame. But I tried!😂
