Free Angela Davis!

It is 12:43 PM Wednesday afternoon here in west Michigan. It is nice sunny day. It feels like early Autumn this afternoon outside.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I made a fresh pot of coffee and then I messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read from these books for morning worship-

Carol got home from around 8:40 AM. She went to bed around 9:30 AM and works tonight. I left the house around 10:30 AM to pick up an order of coffee beans, go to a local grocery store to get supplies and then to visit local thrift stores in search of used books. I found these used books this morning for our library-

These are the used books I bought this morning. When I got home from my errands I ate lunch and cataloged the used books I bought this morning into my LibraryThing site.

Last night is a blur right now. I recall that last night I made a video for my Youtube channel and read from a novel titled, 'Asymmetry' by Lisa Halliday. I suppose I will close to feel wasted. Life around here is so wild it leaves me feeling dead.
