It is in the ice flow 8:11 PM Tuesday night. I am once again alone with my Self. I drove my dear sweet wife to work about 15 minutes ago. It is horrible outside due to a winter storm coming off Lake Michigan. I am sure we will have dig ourselves out tomorrow morning. I was thankful the fellow who plows our driveway came this morning. I am in no physical shape to shovel snow off our driveway.

I had a super quiet day reading my books, watching birds around our bird feeder and writing in my paper diary.

The biggest chore I did today was cook turkey burgers for my wife to take to work for meals. Not much happened today to carry me off into another world of excitement. I plan to go to bed early tonight. I stopped watching television at night pretty much. I have these secular books to read if I need something to do at night-

Lately I have been out of it due to the winter blues. I am spaced. Out somewhere else lately mentally.
