Outside this afternoon it is gray, cold and windy. I was thinking of raking leaves this afternoon, but right now I feel sick to my stomach. I might go out in the back yard and fill the refuse contained with dead leaves since we pay to have this contained emptied on Fridays.
I have been up since 7:15 AM this morning. I had a typical morning. I made myself a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I am still not gaining weight. I weigh 215 lbs. still. I like to weigh 195 lbs.. I messed with our main computer this morning and read my books on Old Testament Book of Genesis. Carol got home from work around 9 o'clock AM this morning. This morning after my wife went to bed I made a video for my YouTube channel on book collecting and Christian Spirituality. So much is left unsaid in my videos.
This morning I went downtown and bought two new books and then visited thrift stores. I spent the afternoon hours writing in my personal paper diary and reading my books. So has gone by existence. Not much else to report. I bought these two books this morning at Reader' World Bookstore-
"Mislaid" a novel by Nell Zink
"Other Colors: Essays And A Story" by Orhan Pamuk
After visiting this bookstore I visit thrift stores and found these two used books-
"The Mighty Angel" A Novel by Jerzy Pilch (translated from the Polish by Bill Johnston)
"American Creation: Triumphs And Tragedies At The Founding Of The Republic" by Joseph J. Ellis
I have been reading this afternoon when not following asleep-
"The Blue Flower" A novel by Penelope Fitzgerald
"Penelope Fitzgerald: A Life" biography by Hermione Lee
This afternoon UPS delivered a book I had ordered a long time ago titled, "Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl" A Memoir by Carrie Brownstein.
Well I fading fast so I will close to face the coming night.
