the church as the true heir of the ancient traditions of Israel

It is 1:47 PM Monday afternoon in the flow of existence. Outside this afternoon it is cloudy and warm. We are suppose to get rain this afternoon.

This morning I was up around 7 o'clock AM. I made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. Carol got up and made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast.

We left the house this morning around 9:30 AM to take Rudy for a walk at Stu Visser Trail. After we walked Stu Visser Trail we drove to the Holland State Park to look at Lake Michigan. There were just a few small ice bergs visible from the shore line folating on the Lake.

After visiting Holland State Park we checked out a couple of thrift stores for used books. I found only three used books this morning to add to our library.

"The Commissariat Of Enlightenment" a novel by Ken Kalfus

"The Ayn Rand Reader" Edited By Gary Hull & Leonard Peikoff

"Gorky: A Biography" by Henri Troyat [Translated From The French By Lowell Bair]

After checking out thrift stores we went and to Zeeland Feed Store to get sunflower seeds for the birds and wildflower seeds. I plan to plant again this Spring some more wildflower seeds in our backyard.

Well I am tired so I will close to rest. We had an active morning.

Henri Troyat

It is going on 3 o'clock PM Monday afternoon. I wanted to list other biographies I have by Henri Troyat in our library. This morning at a Goodwill thrift store I found another biography written by Henri Troyat titled, "Gorky: A Biography". I have these other biographies by Troyat.

"Flaubert" a biography by Henri Troyat [Translated By Joan Pinkham]

"Turgenev" a biography by Henri Troyat [Translated by Nancy Amphoux]

"Peter the Great" a biography by Henri Troyat [Translated by Joan Pinkham]

"Tolstoy" a biography by Henri Troyat [Translated from the French by Nancy Amphoux]

I collect biographies for our library. I usually read a couple of biographies a year. I also collect letters, diaries and memoirs for our book collection.

I did not mention in my last entry what I did last night. Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM.


I did not sleep well. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight.

I like reading biographies mainly of writers. I do collect biographies of historic figures, but I like reading literary biographies.

I will close to drift. I am out of my routine so I feel at a lost. I usually start closing down around 4 o'clock PM for the day. Carol left to go visit a friend who is going through hard times.
