So it is a new week. We go into the month of July 2014 this week. I mentioned to Carol the July Fourth giant used books sale in Grand Rapids and I noticed no enthusiasm, so I told her we do not have to go. I really do not NEED any more used books. I find used books right around here in thrift stores to satisfy my thirst for new books. My hobby is collecting used books. I like adding used books to our library. I could always go to the used books sale alone on the 4th of July. (I do not celebrate any national holy days like the Fourth of July. I am not an American nationalist. I am not into fireworks or grilling meat on the Fourth of July. I find all that dumb. Mindless activity.)
Last night I watched reruns with my wife on TV and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I read last night from a novel titled, "Austerlitz" by W. G. Sebald.
Last night when I turned off my bedside light I was laying in the dark and I was trying to remember all the places I have lived in my life. When I was growing up we lived in many places. It always amazes me to come across people who have always lived in the same place all their lives.
Well I suppose I will close to sit in the dining room. I spend hours just sitting in our dining room doing nothing but watching Time go by.
" I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:1,2
