What's a Married Woman Doing With a Date Book?

I found this date book at a T J Maxx store. The price ***************printed on the book by the manufacturer is $16.95 U.S. I paid $6.99. Can you believe it? I absolutely adore bargains like this.

In case you can't read the words on the front cover, here they are:

Sometimes the people whom we've known for only a short amount of time have a bigger impact on us than those we've known forever. Unknown

The cover page (pictured below) for the month of January has a quote as well:

Growth itself contains the germ of happiness. -Pearl S. Buck

Every page in this date book is beautiful, decorated with the artwork of Sharon McCartney or with lovely borders. Several note pages are included at the end of each month's section and a number of pages for addresses completes the book.

The book is created by BRUSH DANCE. On the back cover is this notation: "The Brush Dance is a Yurok Indian healing ritual where being true to yourself means giving your best to help a person in need. Being true to yourself is the one and only Yurok Indian law."

Guess what I'll be using this date book for? Keeping track of my workouts, what else?

I think of you, my blog readers, when I read the quote on the cover. I've, indeed, known many of you for only a short time, yet, your impact on me is great.

I love this book!!! I bet just holding it makes you feel good! Beautiful way to keep track of your exercising...Have a great Wednesday!

Ahh... Looks like a nice datebook -- and thanks for sharing it with your buddies.

One of my friends once referred to good shopping deals like this one as 'bargasms' which I think is pretty good.

Get back on the elliptical trainer!!!

Annie: You have great taste!! I do love holding and writing in it. Perhaps that's another reason why I exercise so hard; the more I do at NorthPointe, the more I get to write in my book!! Whatever works!!

Natasha: I love your friends word to bargains! Very clever. Is she a writer? If not, she should give it a whirl with her creative mind!

I'll be back on the EFX on Friday, sure as shootin.'

Okay, Natasha got me with the bargasms!

I totaly forgot what I was going to say. The datebooks is oh so pretty and believe me, we all feel the same way about you.

Now I must run, for some unknown reason I have this strong "desire" to shop!

darksculptures: Bargasms. Talk about creativity; we could use that genius in our group, right?

I agree! Word wizards are so hard to come by. We should try to catch them and feed them and hope that they multiply!

Shaddy: Yes, indeed!

Hello! Found your blog because you mentioned the Brush Dance Date Book by Sharon McCartney. Having a dedicated book just for recording your workouts is such a good idea!

I'll definitely stop by again soon! xo
