the author of time transcends time

It is in the ice and snow flow 11 o'clock AM late Tuesday morning. Outside right now it is snowing and 20 degrees. I have been up since 5:30 AM. I am trying to not take a nap today, because I sleep better if I don't take a nap. I was sitting in the living room falling asleep before I decided to write something in my blogs.

So I got up way too early and made myself a pot of coffee. Next I messed with our main computer. I fixed myself oatmeal for breakfast and after I ate my oatmeal I wrote in my paper diary.

Carol called me around 8:30 AM our time and 6:30 AM their time in Arizona. She was up reading her Bible and listening to the sounds outside her window. She said it was nice to have a window open and to be able to sit outside in warm sunny weather.

After talking to my wife I fed the birds and got out these books to read when not falling asleep-

"We Believe in One Lord Jesus Christ" Volume 2 [Ancient Christian Doctrine] Edited By John Anthony McGuckin

"Luke" New Testament III [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Beth Kreitzer

Not much going on this morning. Sitting in the living room listening to electronic music and watching snow fall outside. Existence keeps flowing by.

Last night I read and watched television. I went to bed around 10:25 PM last night. Now it is another day.

Well I will close to drift through the day.

It is 2:59 PM Tuesday afternoon in the snow flow. Every day around this time I put away my paper diary and get ready to go into the early evening hours. The days it seems are getting longer and longer.

I laid down for an hour in our bedroom. I miss sleeping with my wife. Yesterday I skyped Carol, Bethany, and Louisa. I watched Lou eat macaroni & cheese for the first time. Louisa loves to eat! So I watched Carol and Bethany for awhile. After skyping Carol it was going on 8 o'clock PM here in West Michigan. I watched 'Gotham' and then I watched 'Sleepy Hollow'. I went to bed around 10:25 PM last night. Weird dreams drove me out of bed this morning around 5:30 AM. Every morning when I wake up I think about driving downtown for breakfast at the Windmill Restaurant, but I decided not to. I settle on just having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast instead of eggs, pancakes, and sausages/coffee. I have the freedom to eat anything I want to eat, but I am not into food. Today I have eaten basically a sweet roll, a bowl of oatmeal, a banana and a half of sandwich. Do not know what I will eat for dinner. I am just not into food.

This afternoon I have been reading my newest book titled, "The Deluge: The Great War, America And The Remaking Of The Global Order, 1916-1931" by Adam Tooze.

Tonight I do not know what I will do to kill time. Tomorrow is a Wednesday. Carol flies into Grand Rapids Saturday night. She works Sunday night. No way of escape.

Well since this is going nowhere I suppose I will close to wait it out. It is snowing outside and bitter cold. If it was not so bad outside I might be tempted to go someplace to eat dinner. Go to some eating establishment and eat a meal imagining myself being a widower.
