It is in the ongoing death flow 1:33 PM Thursday afternoon. It is snowing here in southwest Michigan. Outside today it looks like the North Pole. I do not hear snow bells today.

I have had a normal day I suppose. It would be a sin to complain. We ought to be thankful for all the Lord's mercies.

When I got home it was around Noontime. I ate lunch and then cleaned the kitchen. I wrote in my paper diary and then cataloged the used books I got today in my LibraryThing site. Carol came home from her errands, ate lunch, and then left to visit her brother who is in the hospital. So Existence keeps decaying. I will close to gather my wits.
