Thinking about……

by surrender884

I started a new e book today, Crazy Love, by Francis Chan. In the first and second chapters we are instructed to go to the book’s web site and watch two YouTube videos. Well that is fine but, then I have to leave the app where I am reading, then open the app again.

Instead I power up my laptop, that way I can keep the app open on my tablet. Now I am thinking that maybe I should down load the app to my laptop. It is possible to do so with this Windows operating system.

The other day my wife tells me to never publish anything that has to do with her life. Fine, I can do that. There is enough stuff about me to confess to anyway.

Three more months and I retire from public service. Sounds important doesn’t it? Not really, just thirty four years working in a thankless job with skills probably not useful after retirement. Sure I learned the proper way to use a Skil saw, that it is best to wear safety shoes while using a jack hammer, always wear a hard hat while on construction sites and do not ever turn your back on traffic when working in the street.

While out and about I ask for applications for employment even if the place isn’t hiring. Come this December those applications will be taken back to the businesses where I received them.

My plan was and is to retire but, still work elsewhere, either full or part time. The thought of working one more day past retirement at my job now is depressing enough. That should tell you something.

Today I went to a local business that trades used books, music and videos.Each item you bring in is worth so many points. In return those points are used towards the purchase of items they have. My collection of books is at the lowest level since I traded some last year for points. This morning I went through my books and traded some more.

Now if I continue to check out ebooks from my local library’s app there will be no trading for other books. The great thing about used books is the discounted price for sure. I have traded for books I purchased from the used book store too.

My other option is to trade cds and dvds at some point. Today I scored the cd  “Collide” by Skillet at a great price. Two books for $3.95 each, a next to new Bible and a slightly used Catholic Catechism. After I return home a friend tells me the store has a new arrivals warehouse in the back.

What a dream job that would be, working in a bookstore. The only problem would be spending some of the paycheck before leaving on payday.

Well that is what I have been thinking about lately. Mostly I think about God though.
