It took me a little while to get to sleep, but I wasn't distressed. I woke at 7:30 a.m., but went back to bed and back to sleep pretty quickly. I woke a little before 9:30 a.m. I hadn't fixed the time on my alarm, so it would have gone off at noon. I fixed that.
I got a bunch of free books.
I went to see if there were any strawberries at that flower stand I'd gotten the salvias from, but the proprietor said that strawberry season had been over for about a week and a half. He had blueberries and vegetables, though. I got blueberries.
I went to an upscale plant nursery. They had herbs 20% off. I got a little bay tree, sorrel, patchouli and a scented geranium that had kind of a lemony scent and variegated leaves. I also got a cardinal flower that was ready to bloom. I came home and planted everything but the cardinal flower, and watered the cardinal flower and the plants I planted.
Later: I signed up for an adult summer reading program at the local library. It had various "challenges" to read specific kinds of books. One was a book recommended by a SO, sibling, or BFF. The only one of those I have is a sibling. J. first recommended a cyberpunk/zombie apocalypse book. I appealed to my virtual friends. J.-PA recommended the "Lost and Found" romances. The titles include the word "Embattled" and the male protagonists are veterans. She got them all. I got the first three free as e-books. Die_traumerei recommended a couple of science fiction romances.
I told J. that I didn't want to read a zombie apocalypse book, and he came back with another couple of ideas. One was a Star Wars tie-in book. J. is big on Star Wars, and has read a lot of tie-in books. The other was Mr. Hockey, a biography of Gordie Howe. That's one I'd actually read.
Another challenge was for a book set in a place you'd like to visit. "Great Britain" is easy enough, and I'm sure I can find plenty of m/m romances by the Macaronis and Josephine Myles and J.L. Merrow set in the U.K. I also reserved a copy of a book about Highclere Castle and its inhabitants from the library.
For "a book that's being turned into a movie," I put a copy of The Danish Girl on hold. I had heard of Lili Elbe, and got a non-fiction account as an e-book. "Ask a librarian for a recommendation" was the easiest challenge, though. I looked across the room at Mom and asked her. She held up the book she was reading. Guess I just need to wait until she's done.
