The form was based on Dawn's beautiful monthly themes at By Sun and Candlelight. Though it is a very inadequate representation -- she is an artist and I'm not ;-).
I always have struggled with temporal sequence. I don't have too much trouble with daily habits, but less regular things just don't happen if I don't keep a watch over them. So I have worked on forming a habit of planning by month. This form is supposed to help with that.
Some things I try to do or think of near the beginning of every month:
- Plan housekeeping projects
- Check the next month for the liturgical year and list topics and resources
- Make a library list or plan "baskets" of crafts and related books for the children.
- Make a list of seasonal activities and possible places to go.
