The Wisdom of the Old Ones

It is 12:18 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold dry day. There is no evidence of sunshine this afternoon.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up I found my wife sitting in our living room reading. I asked her if she had had breakfast yet? She said yes so I only fixed oatmeal for myself for a morning meal. After breakfast my wife and I went grocery shopping. I was not even fully awake when we left for a grocery store this morning, but it is a blessing to be able to buy food. We ought to count our blessing in these lean days.

We were home from grocery shopping around 9:40 AM. After we put away our groceries I left to visit thrift stores in search of used books to add to our book collection. I found these used books today-

'May We Be Forgiven' a novel by A.M. Homes

'The Book of Air and Shadows' A Novel by Michael Gruber

'What Jesus Meant' by Garry Wills

'My Old Sweetheart' a novel by Susanna Moore

So those are the used books I bought today for our library. Not much else to report this afternoon. We are having Josie Joy over tonight for a sleep over. Well I will close to gather my wits.
