I have grown to love diaries, notebooks and journals ever since. Now I use them for multiple purposes daily. Two in my pile above are just for library books...one to note any books I might want to read and one to record those I actually read. The smallest one goes with me everywhere to note anything that I find interesting whether it be sayings or recipes or whatever. Another has all my passwords, lists of belongings, important numbers, etc. I note all my needlework in another...I'm trying hard to be more diligent in noting the kind of wool or fabric used and where the pattern comes from, etc. This is also my wish book where I note intriguing ideas and sketches for future projects. With the start of this blog, I've added yet another book to the group...one for all my blog ideas and plans. There are so many!
Subsequently, my love of journals has become known in the family. This is one my daughter brought me from Cuba; it is fashioned of homemade paper, hand sewn and has my name on the cover. A perfect gift.
