Sunday so far

I stayed up until a little after 2:00 a.m. reading the White Rage book, about the white backlash to black people's accomplishments.  I didn't fall asleep right away, but I don't think it took me long to get to sleep.  I woke up a few minutes before 10:00 a.m.  I must have gotten at least seven hours of sleep.

I did my editing job and sat under the full-spectrum light for an hour.  I chatted with A.W. after I finished the editing job.  Octobercountry posted about the "Big Gay Fiction Giveaway" (http://www.jeffandwill.com/biggayfictionpodcast/big-gay-fiction-giveaway-november-20-27/).  I got some of the books.  I already had several of them from previous giveaways by the authors, and a few from buying them.

Mom and I watched the last episode of season two of "Call the Midwife" and the bonus feature with interviews from the actors and the folks behind the scenes.

The high temperature yesterday was 72 degrees F, and it must have been at least in the 60s all afternoon, when the L.s and I were at Longwood Gardens.  The temperature dropped 48 degrees in fifteen hours.  I haven't been outside yet today, but I opened the door, and it was very cold.  Surprisingly, the begonias survived.  They must be very sheltered where they are on the porch.

I may ask A. if he wants to talk.

Later: I texted a little with A.  I texted a little with J.

I worked on my indoor plants.  One of the Christmas cactuses is blooming.  I guess it's more of a Thanksgiving cactus.  The Christmas cactuses have bright pink flowers.  The zonal geraniums are blooming.  The two salmon-pink-flowered ones survived being transplanted from the raised bed and are doing okay in their pots.  They are on the windowsill of a west-facing window, so they get a good amount of the little sun there is this time of year.  The red one is on a plant stand below the window.  It has flowers and buds.  The sambac jasmine 'Maid of Orleans' is in flower again.  The patchouli has green spikes that I assume are the patchouli version of flowers.  The mother fern seems to be doing well.  It has a number of "baby" ferns on the tops of its leaves.  I may try to plant some.
