a text that came into existence through history

It is 7:42 AM Saturday morning in the flow. I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I went to bed early last night so why I am so tired this morning. I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer.

After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. So goes the morning thus far.

This morning I once again volunteer at the Herrick District Public Library used books store from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM. I will come home after the book nook and watch college football all day.

Yesterday I cleaned the carpet, mopped floors, made a video for my BookTube channel and watched some TV. I went bed around 10 o'clock PM. I did take Rudy for a walk around the neighborhood before going to bed last night. I have been walking this neighborhood going on 26 years. We once had neighbors that had lived in the same house for 45 years. I wonder how long Carol and I will live together in this house. Our days are numbered.

I got out to read this morning a book titled, "Hermeneutics as Apprenticeship: How the Bible Shapes Our Interpretive Habits and Practices" by David I. Starling.

I suppose I will close to feel wasted. Maybe I should take Rudy for a morning walk. Rudy has been hacking all morning. I think he has a cold or his allergies are bothering him. I should give Rudy a bath today.

It is 4:20 PM late Saturday afternoon in the Death Flow. I just got up from a short nap. I need some shut eye if I was going to make it. There is a college football playing on TV behind me. I am really not in the right state of mind to watch college football. I am tired.

This morning before I left for the library book nook Carol called me. I left for the book nook around 9:30 AM. At the library I checked out a book titled, "Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt And The Land Of America" by Douglas Brinkley. The book nook was not busy so to keep myself awake I wandered the store and read from a book titled, "Hermeneutics as Apprenticeship: How the Bible Shapes Our Interpretive Habits and Practices" by David I. Starling. I brought home one used book from the book nook to add to our library titled, "Nobody Is Ever Missing" a novel by Catherine Lacey.

When I got home from the book nook around 1:20 PM I ate lunch and wrote in my paper diary. Existence keeps on decaying. The sun has been shining all day.

Well there is nothing else to report so I will close to feel wasted. Tomorrow is the last Sunday of September 2016.
