I am totally old-school when it comes to my calendar, planning, and journaling! I use a traveler's journal for calendar and planning (kind of my own version of a bullet journal), and I have oh-so-many journals (but no system). I like the look of your little journals -- and it seems like you have a very good plan for keeping them in daily rotation. XO

I love, love, loved the new Little Women movie! I thought it was fresh -- and just wonderful in every way. Little Women was my favorite childhood book, and I probably read it 5 times before the end of middle school. Tom chuckled at me through the whole movie, as I just kept spontaneously WEEPING! Thanks for sharing your lovely winter-y weekend. It sounds perfect. (And I can't wait to see your new sweater.) XO

What a beautiful place to be! And your goal of getting stronger is really important, Kim. What a great way to begin the new year! (And . . . that water!) XOXO

Whenever I see the word "sparkle" anywhere, I think of you! So I think it's perfect that you've chosen sparkle as your word forever. XO Happy New Year, Kim.

The clip is "unavailable" now . . . but I don't mind. Because I know JUST the Seinfeld clip you're talking about. It's brilliant! And I'm glad to visit with you whenever you post -- even if it's about nothing. XO

You are a Stalwart Blogger, for sure! (And I'll be here . . . reading every day.) I've had an iPhone since iPhones came out . . . and my phone is NOT my only iProduct (I'm a Mac person) . . . so I think the tweaks and adjustments I make for a new phone will be a lot different than what you're going to end up doing. For me, I usually tweak the way my phone and my laptop and iPad "communicate" (because some of it is just TOO MUCH interconnection for me). And I really work to turn off notifications and most of the "tracking." I also get rid of as many "add-on" apps (that come with the phone) as I can, and I organize my phone screens for convenience. I used to use a lot of different photo apps . . . but now that the iPhone camera is so great, I find I don't need them as much. I like PhotoToaster (for filters), PicCollage or PicFrame (for collages), and Fontmania (for adding grahics and text). I used to use something called FabFocus for portraits, but now that the iPhone has the Portrait feature, I never use it anymore. Gale Zucker recommends an app called Bena for motion-activated selfies. I've been meaning to try it, but haven't yet. . . Other apps? Oh . . . so many. So very many . . . Have fun! XO

Bon voyage, Vicki! Have a great Arizona trip. XO And good for you for avoiding the candy-trap! We had a big wintry-mix going last night, so it didn't look like a terribly comfortable trick-or-treat experience for the kids . . . but they didn't seem to mind at all. (I love Kate as Raggedy Ann! Erin was Raggedy Ann in preschool, too. Such a cute costume!)

You're making wonderful progress on that car coat, Vicki! It is SO COOL and I love what you're doing with it. And remember the advice YOU gave ME when I was too paralyzed to begin my first Alabama Chanin project: "We knit entire sweaters one stitch at a time. You can do this!" XOXO

WAY too soon for snow. Even if it's just the heavy wet stuff. And even if it is nearly November! I love my hostas right now -- they are glowing yellow and gold. (Hope that snow melts QUICKLY.) XO

Oh, yes! A ballet EVERY MORNING for Ginny! XO Sorry to hear about the snow. We've got it in the forecast later this week. Sigh. Arizona sounds divine right about now . . .

I love the paint on my garage floor! It is a perfect souvenir of our week together! :-) XO (You've been so much busier than I have. My painted pieces are still laying there on my dining room table. Just like they were when you left. . . ) :-O
