It is 1:30 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It has been a cold damp gray ugly day. I hope the plants don't die because of this freezing weather. It is unusually cold for this being late Spring. But once again I know Spring here in Michigan is normally cold and it does not get warm till the middle of May and the first weeks of June.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. Carol was up and she told me she had gotten up around 4:15 AM. So I got made a fresh pot of coffee and ate breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and then messed with our main computer. The world is going to hell, especially America. I spent the morning reading from a book titled, 'The Life of Jesus Christ' Part One Volume 2, Chapters 41-52 by Ludolph of Saxony Translated By Milton T. Walsh. Last night I read till past Midnight. 'Philip Roth: The Biography' by Blake Bailey. I also read last night from a book titled, 'Masscult And Midcult: Essays Against The American Grain' by Dwight MacDonald.

Late this morning Carol and I left to check out places for used books. I bought these used books at various places-

When we got home from our travels we had lunch and I catalogued the used books I bought this morning in my LibraryThing site. So has gone by Time thusfar. This afternoon we babysit Josie Joy when she gets out of school, Caleb drops her off.

I also received this afternoon by UPS the pens I ordered online from Staples Office Supply.

Carol left to deliver a meal for a couple in her church that just had their first child. Time is Now 2:05 PM and I feel wasted and stressed out. I need to get stoned. I need to take a walk on the wildside.

"[1] Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
[2] Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
[3] And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." First John 3:1-3
