This morning when I got up at 6:35 AM I found Carol home from work. She got out early this morning, because she went in early last night for a nurse. I immediately cooked myself breakfast when I got up. I ate a big morning meal and then wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my paper diary I messed with our main computer. I responded to comments posted on the video I filmed last night for my Youtube channel.
Carol went to bed around 7:30 AM and I left for the library around 10:15 AM to help pack the used books that did not sell at the Friends of the Library used books sale. I left the library around 12:30 PM and I brought home these used books that I bought from the left over used books-

OK that is done writing out a list of the used books I bought home today from the Friends of the Library used books sale remains. That was exhausting!
So Time keeps killing me. The time is now 3:20 PM. I need to close shop and head for the hills.
This morning I really did not read anything before leaving for the Herrick District Public Library. I am very tired these days. Life is one ball and chain. I will close to wait it out.
