It is 2 o'clock PM Saturday afternoon in the flow. It is a hot sunny day here in West Michigan. As I type these words I feel myself falling asleep.
I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. After I messed with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read till Carol got up from a book titled, 'The Evangelicals: The Struggle To Shape America' by Frances Fitzgerald. When Carol got up I made us oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I dozed in the living room. I find it hard to stay awake these days. In my old age I find myself falling asleep a lot. There is nothing in this fleeting life to stay awake for.
Carol left this morning to visit our local Farmer's Market and when she got back we did errands. While we were out doing errands we visited thrift stores so I could search for used books to add to our book collection.
