Trelawny is suppose to have snatched Shelly's heart from the funeral pyre

It is 9:47 AM Sunday morning. It is in the high 30's today. All night snow water droplets dripped off our roof.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up made coffee and oatmeal. I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. Carol called at 8:38 AM to tell me she is ready to come home (my wife is a night nurse at a nearby hospital).

Carol has gone to bed for the day. She plans to get up and go to Covenant PCA tonight. She is off from work the next two night.`

I have been doing the usual stuff this morning. I have not fed our birds yet. I have been reading this morning a book I got out of the lower level last night titled, "A Book Of One's Own People And Their Diaries" by Thomas Mallon. I got this book back out to read because last night I started to read Mallon's new novel "Watergate" historical fiction. I also got back out to read last night a book titled, "Memoir: A History" by Ben Yagoda. Last year I read Yagoda's book on the history of the New Yorker magazine. I recently found out that Amazon Prime is going to air a documentary on the history of the New Yorker magazine.

Last night I read basically these books-

"Almanac Of The Dead" a novel by Leslie Marmon Silko

"Watergate" a novel by Thomas Mallon

I also watched television shows last night on our Amazon Prime. Today I plan to watch the professional football playoffs. Existence will keep decaying.

Well I suppose I will close to fed the birds and drift through the day.

"[31] Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
[32] But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.
[33] Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
[34] Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
[35] Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
[36] Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
[37] And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
[38] Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
[39] And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
[40] And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
[41] Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
[42] He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
[43] And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
[44] And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
[45] Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
[46] Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
[47] And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people." Matthew 26:31-47
