glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


carnal pleasures dull the intellect

It is 12:36 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. I suppose we are really situated in the middle west part of the state of Michigan. We live on the West part of the state of Michigan and not the east part of the state. We live in the Midwest. I always tell folks when they ask me where I am from I tell them from the West Coast the San Francisco Bay Area Oakland Calif. is where my mother gave me birth. My mother died in December of 1968, killed by a speeding ambulance.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. When I came upstairs Carol was getting ready to leave the house to do errands. Before she left she read Tripp's devotional book, 'New Morning Mercies' and we prayed. After Carol left to do her running around I wrote in my paper diary, filmed a video for my Youtube channel and read from a book titled, 'The Life of Jesus Christ' Part Two, Volume 1, Chapters 1-57 By Ludolph of Saxony.

I left our house around 10:05 AM to check out a used books sale at the Bluestocking's Book Shop. I got these used books for nothing (the used books sale was a dollar a plastic bag sale and we had a coupon for two dollars, I bought two plastic bag of old used books)-

I left Bluestocking Books Shop around 11:05 AM, drove home to have lunch. When I got home I found Carol home cleaning her bedroom closet, which she is still doing. My wife must end each day knowing she has been productive/accomplished something/done a good deed/not wasted Time Time Time.

I ate lunch and then left to fill my old rusty Dodge van with gas and then drove home to go through Time Time Time. Now I am writing in my online diaries.

Last night we watched Professional Football and read from books. Carol went to bed around 10:10 PM and I soon afterwards went down into the lower level to go to bed. I mainly read yesterday a used book Carol bought me at the Bluestocking Used Books Sale titled, 'The Man Who Would Be King-The First American In Afghanistan' biography by Ben Macintyre.
