Day Timer keeps us going

September 20, 2007

My Day Timer calendar is my lifesaver. It is so important to keep everything on schedule, and recently a disastrous thing happened.

I accidentally left my little book in my shirt pocket and it got washed and dried but good. My schedules were all in little bitty pieces and I was lost.

The night when I usually write this column and had no ideas, I got on my bike and rode around the driveway making circles and figure eights. I was thinking about that little book and thought, hey, why don't I write about that?

This last week has been so busy, and I did some very enjoyable things. On Monday, I had the opportunity to put my latest sculpture on display at the new First National Bank grand opening.

At 9 a.m. Tuesday, I met with a group of friends for breakfast, which occurs every other week. Some are former teachers and we have great conversations.

At 11 a.m., I was invited to give a grapho-analysis program before lunch at Twin Oaks Assisted Living. What a fantastic group of senior citizens they are. All have had successful careers and were full of questions. After lunch I got to tell them about my own art history along with questions about my son, Mike, who painted a mural in the Courthouse. This was part of National Assisted Living Week.

Then there was a 6 p.m. Library Board meeting, followed by a meeting with the Leavenworth County Artists Association at 7 p.m.

On Wednesday, we headed to Kansas City for Ada's eye appointment and got back in time to attend a funeral for a dear friend. At 2:30, I went to the ribbon cutting at the new bank. At 7 was the Knights of Columbus meeting at St. Francis.

Thursday I went to a District Kiwanis interclub meeting at Sabetha. At the same time, Ada went to Smithville for an appointment and got back in time to go to a Historical Society meeting at 1:30. By 4 p.m. we were packed and heading for the State Fair in Hutchinson.

On Friday we manned a booth for Birthright from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., then enjoyed some of the displays at the fair before heading home at 4 p.m.

Saturday morning, I took pictures of runners and walkers at the Steeple Chase and at 11 went our great-granddaughter's soccer game.

Save these little books because they are so important to help remember dates and events. I know many of you out there have similar busy times and know the importance of a Day Timer. That's what keeps us going :
