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.
