After visiting local thrift stores I came home to find Carol still up. My wife has a cold and is not feeling well. She is now taking a nap.

I have not done much else today thus far. I got up late this morning and did the usual things. I mainly read this morning for devotions from a book titled, 'Justification and the Gospel: Understanding The Contexts And Controversies' by R. Michael Allen.

Last night I read some of the biography, 'Schlesinger: The Imperial Historian' by Richard Aldous. Carol and I watched a movie on Amazon Prime titled, 'The Arrival'. Carol went to bed after the movie and I stayed up late to read and write.

Well, I am weary so I will close to feel wasted. It seems from reading the News lately women are at complete war with men.
