our true country is Paradise

It is 12:23 PM Saturday afternoon in the flow of existence here in West Michigan. It has been snowing for a couple of days here by Lake Michigan. It is also bitterly cold outside. It has been predicted to get in the low teens next week.

I got up this morning around 5:45 AM. When I got up I found Carol reading her Bible. I got myself a bottle of cold water and sat in my chair seeking to wake up. Around 6:30 AM I got myself a cup of coffee and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I ate breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary.

When Carol got home I had down loaded a video I had filmed and was about to have lunch. So has gone by existence thus far today. Because I got up so early this morning I feel sleepy. I do not feel like taking a nap so I will just keep moving.

Last night Carol went to bed around 10 o'clock PM and I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I mainly read last night from a book titled, 'Henry David Thoreau: A Life' by Laura Dassow Walls.

I suppose I will close to wait it out.
