It is 3:49 PM Tuesday afternoon here. I was reading from a book titled, 'Garrets and Pretenders:a History of Bohemianism in America' by Albert Parry when I realized suddenly that I had not yet written in my online diaries. Existence had gotten away from me and it is time to break the code of silence and write something down for the human race to ponder as we all go up in smoke.

I got up this morning around 7:30 AM. Carol had been up since 5 o'clock AM this morning. Right now she is sleeping, because she goes back to work tonight after being off for two weeks. So I got up made a pot of coffee and then wrote in my paper diary. Carol wanted to go to errands so I got dressed and we went and did errands. First we went and got oiled sunflower seeds for our birds and then we went grocery shopping. When we got home from our errands it was going on 10:15 AM.

I ate breakfast and then wrote some more in my paper diary. I did not read any of my Christian books this morning. I have only read from these books today, 'American Moderns: Bohemian New York And The Creation Of A New Century' by Christine Stansell and 'Garrets and Pretenders:a History of Bohemianism in America' by Albert Parry.

When Carol went to take a nap I decided to sit in silence and go deep inside a still point. I woke up around 3 o'clock PM. I should mention this morning while Carol was out walking she stopped by Caleb and Emily's. While there she got Ollie their dog and brought him to our place for us to babysit. Caleb will be out of town and while he is gone we will watch Ollie.

Last night I do not remember. I think Carol I watched television and went to bed early. I mainly read yesterday from the book,'American Moderns: Bohemian New York And The Creation Of A New Century' by Christine Stansell.

I do not know what I will do the rest of this day to keep myself awake. I did mow our lawn yesterday while Carol was gone visiting her elderly friend Pam (Pam is 95 years old and wants to die). What I want is to know absolutely I am going to heaven to be with the Lord, the saints, and the elect angels. All I want in this life is to be a Christian and to know for certain I won't go to Hell.

I suppose I will close. I also read yesterday some more of the novel, 'Ducks, Newburyport' by Lucy Ellmann. I suppose I will read some more of this novel this evening.

It is 9:02 PM Tuesday night here in Holland MI. I filmed a video this evening for my Youtube channel and below is a list of the books I mentioned in that short video. I really do not know why I filmed videos since I always feel like I come off foolish. Who am I to talk about life and books? I am just an old man who sits prays for absolute assurance of salvation. I am also a man with little faith and needs a fresh Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Ollie the dog is laying next to my feet. He is use to going to bed early, whereas I stay up to at least 11 o'clock PM. Caleb and Emily are usually in bed by 8 o'clock PM each night. They put to bed Josie and Cora by 7:30 PM. So here I sit waiting for my present recent video to down load.

I have been reading this evening, 'Ducks, Newburyport' a novel by Lucy Ellmann. Not much else going on this evening news worthy. Carol went to work tonight. She had face time on her cell phone with our daughter Bethany and the grandkids Lou, Marn, and Jack this evening. Andy Beth's husband comes home early Friday morning from California. Andy is a an engineer and is working on a dam project in Sacramental, California this week. My youngest sister lives in the Sacramental area.

Well, I will close to feel sick. I am tired of all the shit.
