  1. Time for Hobbies

    It used to be books. It was a bit of an expensive hobby, especially if you could not make it to the library. Building your own mini-library of your favorite books can take years. I am, after all, still building mine. Then, I branched out to decorating our home. Adding accents: greens to be specific.
