Mom and Dad and I went to Boscov's for "Friends Helping Friends" day. One of Dad's veterans' groups was participating, so he'd been there in the morning selling coupons. I didn't get anything. I think Mom got a bathrobe. Dad got pajamas and other stuff he needed.
The royal jasmine has another flower. I've got to bring it in soon.
Dad and I did a bit of gardening. I finally planted the cardinal flower that had been in a pot all summer. It had bloomed in the late summer, and still had green leaves, so that was cool. We planted a 'Red Velvet' lily and cyclamens. I'm glad we got them in. The sternbergia was supposed to be planted "as soon as possible," so we'll have to work on that.
I went to the library and met J., the person I am tutoring in ESL. I'd brought in my books of herbs and some herbs and spices themselves. I brought in some fruit and vegetable and flower catalogs, and gave some of them to J. We went over parts of the body a little bit, and various illnesses, from the Oxford Picture Dictionary. I got an atlas from the reference shelves and J. showed me where she was from, on the Yucatan peninsula. J. showed me how she'd been working through the ESL workbook.
