Wednesday so far

I went to bed around 12:30 a.m. and got up a little after 10:00 a.m.  I didn't sleep that well -- mostly pretty lightly.

I have an appointment.

I meet J. at the library at 5:00 p.m. for more ESL lessons.

I want to get more bulbs planted and bring in the tender plants.

Later: I made it to my appointment.  Dad was watching leftover baseball that he taped last night when I got home, and wasn't interested in helping with bulbs.

I picked some fresh herbs, mostly fragrant ones, and packed my collection of baking spices.  I brought them to the library.  J. got there around the same time I did.  I said we should sit on an outside bench for the fresh herbs, in case someone inside was allergic.  J. enjoyed the herbs.  I pointed out the bronze fennel that was growing outside the library.  The library grows some plants to attract birds and insects.  We saw a caterpillar on one of the stems of the bronze fennel.

The spices I showed J. when we'd gotten inside.  I had brought a small, dated, paperback atlas.  I got a Spanish/English dictionary from reference.  That was fairly helpful.  I wanted to look for an encyclopedia of vegetables and a book about different cuts of meat.  We explored that area.  J. was thrilled at that section, as it turned out to have several bookcases of cookbooks.  She *loves* cookbooks.  We got one on Mexican food that had good pictures.

When I got home, I finished reading A Private Gentleman.  Some of the language seemed modern, but I enjoyed the story.  It had rather a large amount of angst, but I didn't mind that.  Erastes had reviewed it, and also said that it had some modern language.
