glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


freedom of the seas

It is 2:22 PM Friday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is another warm bright sunny day. The weather lately has been perfect late Autumn weather.

I got up this morning around 6:05 AM. I got up and asked Carol who had won the Presidential Election? Still no knowledge who will be the next President. We might not know who will be our next President till next year. It could go either way Biden or Trump. It all depends on those who are really in Power in America. The American people do not chose their presidents, but the unknown Powers that rule the world behind closed doors.

So we will have to wait how much money changes hands in the coming months.

So I got up got a glass of apple juice and sat in the living room seeking to wake up to another day. After waking up somewhat I wrote in my paper diary and then ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. After breakfast I read some more of Anthony Burgess Exposition of John 17.

Carol went for a walk and when she got back we left to drive up to Grand Haven to see if their public library used books store Cheap Stacks was open. While we were in Grand Haven we stopped at thrift stores to search for used books. We found used books at these charity shops before driving over to the library Cheap Stacks was closed so we headed back to Holland. We drove along Lake Michigan and stopped at Kirk Park to look at Lake Michigan. I took pictures at Kirk Park before we headed back home.

Before coming straight home we stopped at a thrift store in Holland and then we stooped at our public library to look to see what used books they had for sale. I bought all together these used books today while we running around (I won't list the used books Carol bought today)-
