It is another sunny breezy morning here by Lake Michigan/west Michigan. As I type I can hear birds chirping. This year I have noticed not many birds by our bird feeder. We usually go through a fifty pound bag of sunflowers every couple of weeks during the Spring and Summer months. I have barely gone through a fifty pound bag the last two months. Weird. Maybe our neighbors have gotten into feeding birds.
I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. Carol was already up when I got up. I made oatmeal for breakfast and also made a fresh pot of coffee. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'The Invention of Science: A New History of the Scientific Revolution' by David Wootton.
I might mow the lawn today. I feel right now wasted, but that is my normal state of being as an old man. I am always amazed I have lived as long as I have seeing people all around me dropping dead in their 60's.
Last night I can't recall except I went to bed early.
I do not remember if I wrote in my online diaries after coming home from the Book Nook. Yesterday while volunteering at the local library used books store The Book Nook it was slow so I read from a book titled, 'How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence' by Michael Pollan. I brought home from the Book Nook these used books to ADD to our library-
'Tales of the East and West' by Joseph Conrad
'King Rat' horror fantasy by China Mieville
'The Gap Of Time' a novel by Jeanette Winterson
'The Girl Next Door' a novel by Ruth Rendell
Caleb, Emily, and Josie got here around 4 o'clock PM to pick up baby Cora. I think Cora was little surprised to see her family once again. They left for GR around 6:30 PM. The evening hours went by. Carol went to bed early and I wrote in my diary and read till I got sleepy. Now it is another day to watch out for flying objects.
Well I suppose I will close to feel hung over. There is no way of escape. Trapped.
