I got up this morning around 6:40 AM. Carol had been up since 4 o'clock AM this morning. Carol typically goes to bed real early and gets up early. She usually starts falling asleep around 8 o'clock PM each night. I often sit across from my wife in our living room reading and I look over to see this old woman who is my wife falling asleep. My wife constantly goes all day and when it gets dark she slowly goes to sleep. My basic routine is to go to bed around 11 o'clock PM and get up around 6:30 PM. Sometimes I might doze 30 minutes during the middle of the afternoon. I usually read and go into a deep contemplative state that could be seen as dozing.
This morning I mainly read the mystical treatise 'The Ascent of Mount Carmel' by St John of the Cross. I think last night I made video while my wife was gone to a Woman's Book Club.
There is not much else to report this afternoon. Carol and I are watching Ollie while our son and his family have a meal with his wife's family. They are predicted to be home tomorrow and will pick up Ollie. Ollie knows we are his Grandparents.
Besides reading St John of the Cross I have written several pages in my paper diary today. I plan to sit in silence this afternoon and listen to the wind howl. There is no way of escape.
