It is 10:46 AM Monday morning here in West Michigan. It is sunny and 67 degrees this morning.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM out habit. I got up greeted our dog Rudy and got myself a cup of coffee. I next walked to our main computer located in our living room and checked for e-mail and read stuff for over an hour. I got off the computer walked to our kitchen and made myself oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary till Carol got home from work.

It has been a typical morning thus far. Soon I will be in the afternoon hours once again.

I have nothing to do today worth doing. Last night I made a video for my BookTube channel and watched television till 11:30 PM.

This morning I read Thomas Manton's exposition of the Epistle Of Jude verse 16. Before coming here to write I was reading a biography on the life of Samuel Pepys.

I am tired so I will close to drift.
