in the end who really cares

It is 10:11 AM Wednesday morning in the ongoing death march. Outside this morning it is cold and cloudy. It is suppose to snow today off and on. It snows till April here in West Michigan. Maybe by the end of May we will see warm Spring weather.

I got out of bed around 7 o'clock AM this morning. I got up ate a bowl of cereal and made a pot of coffee. I messed with the computer and then wrote in my paper diary. I have been wandering my cell and reading 'Paul: A Biography' by N.T. Wright. So goes by Time this morning.

Last night I made a video for my Booktube channel and read my books late into the night. I read from these books last night-

'Tristessa' a novel by Jack Kerouac

'The Diaries of Emilio Renzi: Formative Years' by Ricardo Piglia Translated by Robert Croll

'The Royal Family' a novel by William T. Vollmann

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I should mop floors sometime today because Carol is flying home from Denver. I expect Carol to be home late tonight if all goes well. We never know when it is all over.

I am falling asleep so I will close to sit and hope for better days.

It is 4:18 PM Wednesday late afternoon here in West Michigan. I feel restless but it is snowing and I can't drive anywhere in bad weather. Where would I go anyway? There is no place to go that I have not been there before.

I cleaned the house and trimmed my beard this afternoon. Carol won't be home for another eight hours so I have to wait it out. I have been reading 'The Invented Part' a novel by Rodrigo Fresan Translated From The Spanish By Will Vanderhyden.

I did leave late this morning to visit local thrift stores and go pick up a prescription. I did not find any used books to add to our library today. No books came in the mail today for me. Do I really NEED any more books?

So Time crawls along at a normal pace. I thought of making a video for my Booktube channel, but my mind is spinning this evening. I like to do a video on the apostle Paul and what N.T. Wright has written about him. But that is a task I am not up for this evening. Where to begin in setting forth the New Testament theology of N.T. Wright?

So the day has gone by. I suppose I will close to drift and read my books.
