It is in the ongoing death flow 11:38 AM Saturday afternoon. It is another humid cloudy day here in west Michigan. It is still wet and not dry. I need to mow our lawn, but the grass is wet. Also I am not in the mood or physical condition to do lawn work. I still feel sick inside and outside.

I got up this morning around 6:10 AM. Weird dreams woke me up, so I got up to face it. There was no way to not escape waking up. So I got up messed with my lap top computer (Carol and I have been sleeping down here in the lower level while we have visitors.) Carol woke up while I was on my lap top. We both went upstairs to face existence on that level of reality. I made oatmeal for Carol and I for a morning meal.

This morning I read from these books for morning worship-

'Canonical Theology: The Biblical Canon, Sola Scriptura, and Theological Method' by John C. Perkham

'The Love of God: A Canonical Model' by John C. Peckham

The morning has gone by in a blur. Carol and I did leave the house this morning to buy more food for our visitors. While out running around the Wasteland food gathering we stopped at a local thrift store so I could look at their used books. I found these used books to add to our library today-

'Man and Superman' a play by Bernard Shaw

'Mothers and Sons' Stories by Colm Toibin

'Ever Since Darwin-Reflections In Natural History' by Stephen Jay Gould

'Being Shelley: The Poet's Search for Himself' a biography by Ann Wroe

So time keeps crawling by on broken legs. Last night is a blur so I won't attempt to summarize it this morning. Yesterday I mainly read when possible from a novel titled, 'The Queen of the Night' by Alexander Chee.

I do not know what Carol, Caleb, Emily, Josie, Cora, Josiah, Hannah, and Marika are going to do this afternoon. I am still recovering from my illness, so I plan to seek healing.

I did pre-order last night a book titled, 'Theodicy of Love: Cosmic Conflict and the Problem of Evil' by John C. Peckham.

I will close to sweat out in my iron cage.

It is 1:59 PM Friday afternoon here in west Michigan. It is another damp rainy humid day. The weather has been plain wet and gray lately. It is hard to believe we are in the Summer months already when it feels like Autumn.

I volunteered at the library used books store The Book Nook today from 10 AM till 1 PM. The store was slow so I basically sat and read from a novel titled, 'The Queen of the Night' a novel by Alexander Chee. I brought home from the Book Nook these used books for our library-

'Heroes Of The Frontier' a novel by Dave Eggers

'Daredevils' a novel by Shawn Vestal

'Grant' a biography by Ron Chernow

Josiah, Hannah, and Marika went to Grand Rapids this morning to visit Caleb. They will be back this evening with Caleb our oldest son.

I am feeling somewhat better today, but not a 100%. I feel tired.

There is not much else to report this afternoon so I will close.
21st-Jun-2018 12:39 pm - wooden shoes
It is 12:31 PM Thursday afternoon here in west Michigan. It is a gray damp humid day. Carol, Josiah, Hannah, and Marika left to go shopping for wooden shoes and baby clothes. I stayed home because I am sick with some kind of stomach flu. I have not felt well for a couple of days. Yesterday I really felt sick. So right now I am really in no condition to write anything that would make sense.

Last night Josiah, Hannah, and Marika arrived here from Canada for their visit. They were in Canada visiting Hannah's Grandma and Marika's Grandma Great also one of Hannah's uncles.

I won't go into last night.

I got to close since I am not feeling well. I have been mainly reading from a book I got in the mail yesterday titled, 'The Destiny Thief: Essays on Writing, Writers, Life' by Richard Russo.

20th-Jun-2018 12:16 pm - the last day of Spring 2018
It is 12:09 PM Wednesday afternoon here. It is a cold damp gray wet day. It is a day one could turn on the heat once again. It is hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of Summer 2018. Today it feels like early Autumn instead of late Spring.

I got up this morning around 5:55 AM. I got up because our bedroom was hot and I did not feel well. When I got up Carol was putting an apple cake into the oven to bake. She wanted to go grocery shopping and then to the Farmer's Market first thing this morning. So when the apple cake came out of the oven to cool we left.

We were home from shopping around 8:25 AM. We put away the groceries and then Carol left for a Woman's Bible Study. I dozed till Carol got home from the Bible Study. So has gone this marvelous day.

I have read nothing this morning due to feeling sick and extremely tired. I am chilled to the bone. I am dying.

I do not remember last night. Well I suppose I will close to feel sick.

"2Cor.4
[14] Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
[15] For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
[16] For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
[17] For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
[18] While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2Cor.5
[1] For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
[2] For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
[3] If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
[4] For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
[5] Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit."

It is 10:01 AM Tuesday morning in the shit flow. It always amazes me all the shit that is flowing underground all the time. It is a gray rainy humid damp morning here in west Michigan. A good day to go outside and wait for Summer to come. This week Spring ends and Summer begins. The year 2018 is becoming history.

I wanted to make a list of the books on my main study desk this morning because I mentioned them in a video I made this morning for my Booktube channel.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up ate breakfast and messed with our main computer. I next wrote in my paper diary and then made a video for my Booktube channel. Carol got home from work around 9:01 AM. Carol went to bed and I came to our main computer to write. So has gone by Time thus far.

Last night I mainly read late into the night from a novel titled, 'The Queen of the Night' by Alexander Chee.

I will now close to download the video I made this morning. I have no plans for the day. I will close to wait it out. There is no way out.
