2018 Calendar

October 18th, 2017

Last year I didn’t do a calendar, which was very sad. There simply wasn’t enough time or energy with everything going on and all the traveling. This year however, the Chiot’s Run Calendar will be back. My plan is to have it finished and ready next week. In fact, I’ve already been going through photos and choosing a few of my favorites.

The funny thing is, as I was thinking about this calendar I didn’t think I’d have enough images to fill an entire year (good images that is). A best of calendar from the last 8 years was on my mind, but then I started going through photos and I think there will be more than enough from this year and last. The hard part is actually narrowing them down to the top 12-20.

Do you buy a paper calendar each year?

    Susy, calendars are easy to make with all the technology we have today. Almost any place that processes pictures with be able to print out calendars. Last year I noticed that you didn’t have a calendar for what ever reason so I made my own garden calendar. I picked one picture that was taken from every month of gardening through out the year and designed the calendar on the Walgreen’s website. They printed it out and I picked it up. It’s been a pleasure to see what I was doing last year during each month. Your pictures are so much better than mine when you make your calendar. I’ll most likely make one again this year.

    Have a great calendar making day.

    I usually buy calendars but I’ve received several free calendars in the mail this year that are actually pretty nice so I am going to opt to use those this year. It feels weird to deviate but might as well not waste it, right?

    I am looking forward to getting one of your calendars. I started listening to your podcast in November 2016. I wanted to buy one last year, but, there was none. Thanks for putting one together for 2018.
