There will be some friends happy to see this!!!
How did I get here? Well it certainly isn’t because I’m a great one for personal dairies or journals. My husband is great at that!
He’s kept a daily diary since his teenage years. I know only one other gentlemen we’ve meet in our years of living in Sydney (NSW), Adelaide (SA) and Manjimup (WA), that keeps a diary. It would be interesting to know how many men folk enjoy this discipline. It really is a personal self-discipline to keep up with a diary.
Further to my husband’s interests are books!! He has a personal library of over 8,000 books. Thought you might enjoy a “look-see” in his study. The books in his study, which are wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, are only a portion of the collection. We have book shelves in every room of the house. There is another large portion of the library outside in a fully-lined, back store-room.
So what does his library mean to me? Well I get to use many books on many subjects whenever I need them. I have a wonderful supply of books to read right here in my home. It means he supports my own desire for books for all my crafting needs and I can add to that, “magazines” as well!!
When we lived in Sydney and were studying at Bible College in preparation for church ministry. We had a lecturer say “go without bread, to buy books.” Thankfully we haven’t had to go without, to enjoy our interests.
So here I am joining many friends and like minded “crafty” people in “blog-land”. I will be sharing all sorts of things from my part of the world.
