The Girl From Ipanema

It is 12:42 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold rainy gray afternoon.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. When I got up I made a fresh pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. Carol got up around 6:30 AM this morning.

I did not read anything this morning due to being extremely tired. I did write though in my paper diary this morning. Next I took several loads of books out of the lower level and put these old used books into our old Dodge van. Tomorrow Carol will take another huge load of books over to Bluestocking Bookstore to exchanged for instore credit.

Carol and I left to do errands around 10 o'clock AM this morning and we were home by Noontime. When we got home we then ate lunch. I went down in the lower level to sort through books after lunch. Now I am writing in my online diaries. I am really too tired to read or actually do anything today. I suppose I will close to drift through this day.

Last night I read before going to bed from a book titled, 'The Accidental Life: An Editor's Notes on Writing and Writers' essays by Terry McDonell. I have really reading this memoir by Terry McDonell about being an Editor of leading national magazines over forty years.

I got to close before I pass out.
