In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take 1 - 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?
Please have a peek at what others have found this week:

This week what I've noticed has much to do with my 2019 goals; my discovery of a new way of setting goals, especially around my scrapping & storytelling style & methods.
While I am looking forward, I thought it would be interesting if not helpful to maybe have a look back on how I kept notes about the weather as my gardening scrapbooking is what I do most of. I've been keeping notes about weather since high school because of a geography project. By the way I scored a very high mark for my completed project.
What I noticed about my early weather calendars was the sense of fun & play about them, even in recording winter months or maybe because of winter. I do know that I would find a sticker sheet & use it, no saving or stashing, no buy extra just in case. Then as I review my current calendars I noticed a lessening of product use & definitely a lessening of play & fun on my page.
So my threesome to day is a look back, plus it also serves (me) with a reminder of returning to play, fun & using the stuff I have. I haven't yet put together 2019 January's calendar page but you can be sure there will be a return to a sense of play in recording the month's weather. Also to note, it was fun to look back to see how if any the weather patterns have changed. Oh & these pages are not part of my school project, like so much from my youth, nothing was saved.
The first page is from 2004, the second is from 2005 & the third is from 2013
And yes I did have a quick thought "oh I wish I had bought two of those snowmen dies & sticker sheets because I would use them now " (would I though ?).
