So this day has gone by somewhat normal. I got up around 6:25 AM this morning. Carol had got up around 5 o'clock AM this morning. When I got up I made for breakfast for Carol and I a pot of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer.
After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my paper diary I read for devotions from a book titled, "Godly Prayer And Its Answers" by John Brown of Wamphray. After reading this book for awhile on the duty and delight of prayer I fed the birds and then left the house to visit thrift stores north of town. I found these used books this morning to ADD to our library-

When I got home Carol arrived right after I did. Carol had gone out to lunch with an old girlfriend. I ate lunch and after lunch Carol received a text from our daughter Bethany that she wanted to know if we could skype? Beth skyped us and we talked to Beth and our two little granddaughters Lou and Marnie. Beth is pregnant and will have their baby next month Lord willing. The baby is a boy and Beth and Andy have named him Jack Stuart. Carol plans to be down there in Phoenix around the time the baby is born.
After Carol and I skyped Beth and the girls Carol went to bed to sleep and I have been messing with my books.
In the mail this afternoon I received two books I had ordered and a third book that was a gift from one of my BookTube friends.
My BookTube friend sent me a book titled, "Jonathan Swift: The Reluctant Rebel" biography by John Stubbs. The two books I had ordered are titled-
"Life At The Bottom: The Worldview That Makes The Underclass" nonfiction mental health by Theodore Dalrymple
"Shakespeare and Company Paris: A History of the Rag & Bone Shop of the Heart" Edited by Krista Halverson
So Time goes by. I suppose I will close to drift. Outside today it is 37 degrees, damp, cold, and dismal gray.
