A new Year

My year begins in October.

On the 7th of October I will be beginning my 60th year. Never thought I would live to see that day but the Great Spirit willing I will.

On the 31st most Celtic witches and other pagans celebrate our New Year as Oct 31 and Nov 1 mark the end of one harvest year and the beginning of the next.

I usually have to replace my datebook/journal around the beginning of October and this year is no different. I have chosen the book and put the year on the front. Today I will be adding the yearly bits like birthdays and such.

The first section of my journal includes the annual celebrations, my yearly and monthly goals. Sometimes other things as well.

I was wishing for my first datebook which was called soul something, it has a lot of other sections in the beginning as well but I think it is long gone. I did have a One Note version but I don't know if I still do.

A few years ago I switched to Evernote but I am thinking it is rather limited compared to One Note. In One Note I can make charts and things in the other Office apps and import them, Evernote not so much.

Anyway, I've been keeping busy. As the year winds down I am planning for the new one, not only in real life but online as well. I am determined to get my crazy quilt wall hanging done by the end of the winter, sooner if I can.

I have been thinking about what shape I want this blog to take next year as well. I enjoyed the daily celebration posts but am not sure I want to continue. There is a lot of research involved on the other hand I learned a lot of new things and as far as I'm concerned that is the most important thing.

If you have any suggestions I'm all ears!
