calendar // august


Very much subscribing to the theory of “better late than never” with this month’s calendar.

I haven’t missed a calendar download in too many months to remember so I can’t let the streak break now.

Plus, we need one for the kitchen.

This monthly calendar is the tool by which we remember who did the dishwasher last. This is one of the chores exclusively done by the boys which they take in turns and without written evidence, there would be much arguing and conjecture about who did it last.

When I’m late supplying one to pin next to the fridge, they start writing dates and initials down the to do list.

So this is a little reminder for them [someday is not a day, just like soon ~ as in I will do the dishwasher "soon" ~ is not a time].

Happy birthday to all the August babes ~ celebrate with peridot stones and gladioli!

Do you use the calendar? What do you use it for?

Pinch and a punch for the last day of the month ~ and the last day of the financial year here in Australia. [But let's not go there ~ tax time, ugh!]

Not to mention we are halfway through 2014! How did that happen?!

So July.

  • It was named by the Roman Senate in honor of the Roman general, Julius Caesar, it being the month of his birth. Prior to that, it was called Quintilis.
  • July starts on the same day of the week as April in every year, and January in leap years. In a common year no other month ends on the same day as July.
  • It’s hot in the north and freezing in the south.
  • It’s a great month for Independence Days around the world ~ including the US on the fourth of July ~ and its Bastille Day on July 14.
  • July’s birthstone is the ruby and its birth flowers are the Larkspur or the Water Lily.

Pinch and a punch for the second day of the month.

This month’s calendar is coming to you a day late this month after we spent the weekend celebrating with a bit of bash for my birthday. Twas a great night and hope to be able to put some words and pictures together for you soon.

So here we are in June, which means  the halfway point of 2014 is drawing near, which, quite frankly, is just crazy.

It is of course the official start of winter here in the south, summer in the north, so a splash of pink seemed in order.

Some fast facts about June.

  • No months start on the same day of the week of June in common or leap years, just like its predecessor May.
  • The Latin name for June is Junius. But there are differing theories for its origin ~ after the Roman goddess Juno or from the Latin word iuniores, meaning “younger ones” . 
  • It’s World Environment Day on June 5 and Bloomsday on June 16 in honour of James Joyce’s Ulyssess.
  • And of course the solstice occurs from June 20 to June 21.
  • June’s birthstones are pearl, alexandrite and moonstone and the birth flower is the rose.
