I got up this morning around 7:48 AM. When I got up Carol had left to have breakfast with a friend who just became a widow. In Carol's church there are six women this year who have become widows. There are right now 26 widows and 6 widowers in Carol' church. It seems men/husbans die before the women/wives do. I know someday Carol and I will both die. I am sure I will be the one to die first.
I spent the morning doing the usual things like having breakfast, writing in my paper diary and reading from a book. Today I mainly read my Reformation Commentary on the Gospel of John Chapters 13 through 21/I read on John Chapter 17 today. Now it is 1:52 PM Tuesday afternoon.
Before I sat down to write I fed the birds and put clean water in the bird bath. It sure was hot outside! Carol has been on the computer ordering books for the Woman's Church Ministry.
I do not know what I will read this afternoon? Today I have find myself just staring off into space.
I did take a walk this morning around our neighborhood. I took a walk last night also. Tomorrow is the first day of our Friends of the Library Used Books Sale. Due to my present mental health condition I have not helped this year with the Used Books Sale. I can volunteer at the Book Nook, but that is about it. After I do my volunteer shift I need to come home and recover.
I did read from these books today and also last night-'The Size of Thoughts' Essays By Nicholson Baker and 'Rome, Naples, And Florence' Travel Memoir Fiction By Stendhal.
Well, I suppose I will close to write, read, and stare off into space. I have not taken any Xanax today. Thus far I feel OK. I am still taking each morning Paroxetine.
