    What kind of calendar is in your home?

    Do you prefer wall or desk calendars?  Scenery, animals, birds, in color, black and white, sepia tones, etc. ?

    I always have at least two (one for my room that is private) and they have to have beautiful pictures of flowers or birds, cats, etc and the big squares for each day for writing appointments and all my business in. I keep them then and can go back and find the date anything and everything happened the year before. Sort of like a diary!

      I do the same thing, Jackie.  Everything important is written on that calendar.

    Any more I have only the calendars in my phone & computers. I haven't had a paper calendar in many years.
    When I did it was usually 1 Dilbert and 1 Far Side.

      You know, I forgot that we could use that option now.  Thanks for the reminder.

    I always get calendars for Christmas from my ma who is obsessed with keeping them. My favorites are ones with adorable animals big_smile

      Would you be interested in babies more than adults?

      So your in-laws don't keep them for any more than that particular year, right?

    Even with calendars that can be viewed in a number of different ways on gadgets, I have "a thing" about having a "real" calendar in one corner of the kitchen.  (I also have "a thing" about having a few "face" clocks too, in spite of having all kinds of digital clocks "everywhere".)  Anyway, I most often look for beautiful, colorful, Nature-pictures (flowers are easiest to find, but the right scenery is good too).  I did have to live through one year of cute Teddie bears dressed in month-appropriate outfits; but they were cute and cheerful, and I'd waited to long to buy a new calendar that year.  I don't - at all - rely on, or frequently refer to, the wall calendar, though.  I "live by" the electronic ones.  I just think there should be at least one wall calendar in a home.

    To me, desk calendars are a waste of desk space and paper.  I'm a minimalist when it comes to my desks.

      Glad to know that you still have use for wall calendars.  Thanks for the input.

    I always have a wall calender next to my computer. It seems to make it easier for me to refer to dates for bills, appointments, etc. I usually get either one with nature scenes and Bible verses or one with wild animals (wolves and tigers being my favorite).

      I like having something in front of me, too.  I have to write my work schedule on it, as well, since it is always changing.

    We have a tradition of keeping a wall calender that features, Australian Cattle Dogs. Our breed of course, and one that has been in mine and my families since I can remember. The dogs are also known as, Blue Heelers, or Queensland Heelers.

      I have met a couple, believe it or not.  Those are good rough and tumble dogs.

    I like to have a wall calendar in the kitchen for appointments and such, and one by my desk. I usually just use whatever free calendar the bank or propane company is giving out that year.

      I used to do that, too, Sherri, then I found that I just didn't have enough space.

    I love both wall and desk calenders. I love scenery, motivational quotes and calenders depicting art and architecture.

      I thought of shooting some pics from rooftops in black and white.  What do you think?

    We have wall calendars. Paris Glitz to be exact.
    Ever since we went to Paris we have bought calendars that include photos of this beautiful city. The Paris Glitz calendar photos are black & white in the background with the focal point of the photo in vibrant color.

      That really sounds interesting.  I'm going to have to take a look at that technique.  Thanks for the great info.
