A New Day Has Begun

Once again, I have come to change the look of my diary while writing. I used to use Word, but I have gotten rid of the monotonous yearly subscription. I have been using iOS instead of Windows for several years, and the annual subscriptions are getting very expensive for my low-income status of being handicapped and having health issues at this time. I use what Apple (iOS) has allowed Mac owners to use Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. These three programs are free to use for the Mac user. I love the iOS operating system comparing to Windows. The programs Pages, Numbers, and Keynote is similar to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I am using Pages now, and have been since January 1, 2020. I have to create my cover page as Pages does not have that option. I have enough imagination to create my cover pages. Yes, it is extra work, and I have time to spare every day to work on my writing projects.

January 2020 has now left the stage so that February can do its performance. I believe, for most of the month, January went by fast. Is it true that when someone gets older, time does go by more quickly? I have noticed a little difference in the days gone by as I have gotten older throughout the days of my life since childhood. Even some days do not seem to go fast enough, or it could be that I have a rough patch in my day, or I am bored to death. Today is dialysis day, and the weekend begins once dialysis over this afternoon. Yep, I have what I consider two types of weekends now. If and when I change days going to dialysis to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, my weekend begins at sundown Friday night to Monday. Right now, having dialysis on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, to me, makes it two weekends even though Monday is a weekday.

I have been up since 5:30 AM this morning. I thought of getting up and writing in my diary before my day began with bathing, getting dressed, and heading out the door to dialysis when I decided to get to writing in my journal by 6 AM before my IRIS worker DKF got here before 7:30 AM. That is when she comes on Saturday mornings until further notice. She will not be here on February 8 and February 15. Why not spend a little time writing in my diary? It is an excellent time to do so.

  1. This is an attractive page! I have an iMac and use pages and the other programs you mentioned. They work fine for me and I don’t miss Windows either!! 🙂

    One of my things I want to do this year is to write more.. in my on line diary, AND my paper journals too. It’s therapeutic. 🙂

  2. Mac is great and I love using their Pages templates as my diary. I tweak it a bit to suit my needs. Creating my own cover pages is fun and it gives me a chance to be creative
