Yes, that's much the same as I suggested (12 months x 4 weeks +
4 solsticial/equinoctial weeks and 1 or 2 days over).

Or another way of looking at it: forget about months altogether, and
have the year consist of week 1 ... week 52 (with 1 or 2 days over;
have to keep saying that, otherwise people think I don't know how
many days are in the year).
