September 2020 Printable Calendar

8:11 AM

 

The virgo art goes to illustrate the Home Cyn Home printable calendar for the month of September

I almost dropped the ball on this one! 

It's September 1st, 7.30 am and I just realised I didn't schedule this month's printable calendar post. This year I can't blame it on the festive vortex and too many public holidays or too many social engagement though. 

August has been as boring as you would expect it to be in a country that is still half shut. I think I can blame it on 2020 fatigue, being done with all that crap already, and falling in a new routine of dealing with online school, and a fragmented work schedule that has to wrap around the time my daughter needs the laptop, and the time hubby needs my office space. 

It's been almost 6 months now that I am constantly sharing my space with both of them (and the pets) and I'm not going to lie, I'm still not fully used to it.

All this past week, my daughter had her "Fall break" which in Pandemic time is a bit ludicrous as you anyway stay home. It is the first time in the history of school holidays that I welcome that break though. Because for one whole week, I am getting the office AND laptop in the mornings without interruption whatsoever, and that has made a world of difference to my overall productivity.

August has been a very wet month in Mumbai, apparently we received the most rain in August in a decade. This was the perfect excuse to stay in bed, and drink tea the whole day long
But all this set aside, the lockdown / pandemic fatigue is really kicking in, and I really wished we could do away with this whole mess once and for all. I said it before, I feel like we are playing a weird kind of video game where each levels grant us more freedom and perks.

August, aka "Level 8" has seen the reopening of the shops in malls (but not restaurants or cinemas), I am seeing a lot more rickshaws on the road, which gives me hope that should I step out alone, I can get around the way I used to. 
Our cook is finally back, we found out that she got her authorisation to work in another building in the compound, so we requested she be allowed to come to our place. That was some paperwork with a heavy dose of sermoning on how if the disease enters the premises we will be responsible. 

The management also insisted the cook subject herself to a medical check up every 2 weeks (for which we will have to bear the cost apparently) and initially the management was trying to regulate her working days to alternate days, but we wanted her daily, so we had to sign more paperwork for that. 

There is no telling what September has in store and what perks we will really gain, so far I heard the Mumbai metro will be allowed to resume limited operation. I haven't looked into anything really as the more we go into this crazy year, the less "F" I give.

If you came here to download the calendar page for the month of September, I'm done rambling and you can do so now before I launch myself in a tirade about the artwork.





The artwork is as usual available in both my Society6 and Redbubble shops. The Apron in the picture above is one of Redbubble's latest product
The month of September is associated with the zodiac sign of Virgo, which starts on August 23 and ends on September 22. 
Virgos are said to be practical, logical, perfectionist and quite intense if not dominating. I can't disagree with any of it, I have family members under that sign. I'd say the perfectionism is pushed to a fault, and if something could not be explained logically, it is usually dismissed as total poppycock by the Virgos I know. Ironically, I'm pretty sure most Virgo would poo poo astrology because it isn't logical.


That's all for the month of September folks! 
See you in October for another calendar post and a recap of the month that was. I am yet to work on the 2021 calendar edition, though this year there will be massive changes in the whole format and how I share it. More on that in a month or 2...

  1. Happy ganesh chaturthi to you and family, may lord ganesha bless us all with health and auspiciousness.


    It has been the wettest august for the past 44 years. It rained for two weeks straight. Driving in the rain is a strange adventure more like a video game.

    The metro is going to be operational soon in a graded manner. How I miss it. My house and office are right next to the metro stations. Now, it means more checks, restrictions and long lines. I don't know how they are going to work out the crowds.

    1. Thank you, wishing you the same,

      It's been a really wet monsoon all along in Mumbai, normally in August we see the rains slow down a bit, this is year it's been pretty much raining all month long, I think we saw the sun only twice in August.

      The metro was supposed to be operational in a graded manner in Mumbai too, but I read reports and guidelines that suggest otherwise. Not that I use the metro often enough to really stay on top of that kind of informations.

      We are still all at home, offices aren't really reopening unless they really have to and I think a lot of people are enjoying not being stuck in never ending commutes.
