Rudolph Day for June
Rudolph Day was Monday, June 25, and I'm afraid I didn't get a lot of Christmasy things done that day. A thought just occurred to me, though, and I think it may help with future Rudy Days. In the past month or so, I have taken to scheduling my weeks and my days again. (This is something I used to do when my eldercare responsibilities were very heavy.) I have a great weekly schedule set up that I can print out for each week, and I print them two-sided so I get two weeks' worth of scheduling out of one sheet of paper. It just now occurred to me that I need to be sure to write in Rudy Day in the weekly schedule that includes the 25th of each month. That will help, I'm sure.
That said (and hopefully I will act on it this month), I did accomplish some Christmas planning that day. I got out my Christmas notebook and added a few ideas to my gift lists. As mentioned previously, I did order the items I needed to make a particular gift item for a loved one. Those have now arrived, and I will start the project soon. Also in the past few weeks, I have ordered and received a few stocking stuffers, plus I have ideas for others. I also added a fudge recipe to my Christmas cookbook so I will know where to find it.
So ... not the most productive of Rudy Days, but a few things got done and Christmas planning remains on my radar screen. I am paying attention to some Christmas in July postings going on this month, so maybe I can get back here to my Christmas kitchen and share some of those ideas!
