Thursday so far

I went to bed at 1:00 a.m., and tried to get to sleep for two hours.  I couldn't get to sleep.  I got up and had a muffin and took Benedryl.  I finished reading Mr. Hockey, then tried again to go to bed.  That time I dozed.  I got up at 8:30 or so and had breakfast, including Breakfast Blend tea, which I thought would keep me up.  I went back to bed and slept until 10:30 a.m.  At that point I felt semi-rested.

Mom and I went to the local independent book store.  I got a book on "feeder birds."  Dad will be able to refer to it to see what birds he can recognize.

When we got home, I watered the cardinal flower, blue flag iris and the jasmines.  The sambac jasmine 'Maid of Orleans' has lots of flowers open.

Later: Mom and I went to the Y and went swimming.  The water was cold, so I just paddled around a little and read some of John Buchan's The African Colony.  It was written in 1902, and Buchan is quite the racist.  The colony is South Africa.

YMCA-P. had called last night, but by the time I saw his call, it was 11:00 p.m., too late to call back.  I called him back this evening.  I texted J.  A.J. called me back, and we talked for a while.

I fell asleep in a chair downstairs at 9:00 p.m.  I went upstairs and dozed from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.  I went on the computer for half an hour, and then read for about half an hour, and went to bed again.
