glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


a collection of illuminative moments or perceptions

It is in the flow of existence 2:22 PM Wednesday afternoon. The sun is shining this afternoon, but it is cold. It is 27 degrees this afternoon.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up my wife was getting ready to leave to get her blood drawn and to meet a friend for breakfast. When Carol left I made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my diary I made a video for my BookTube channel. I read this morning from a book titled, "The Works Of Reverend Hugh Binning".

Carol got home around 9 o'clock AM and she suggested we go for a walk since it was so nice outside. So Carol and I went for a walk at Windmill Island and Window On The Waterfront. After going for a walk we visited thrift stores so I could search for used books to add to our library. I found these used books this morning-
