I got a pocket watch. It has a nice big dial and visible second hand.
I finally got out and planted the irises I got a month ago. Dad had said there was a part of his vegetable garden he wasn't using. I wouldn't have been able to get through the clay and shale of the unimproved (most of it) yard. The soil in the vegetable garden was nice and soft. The irises are way too close together, but at least they're planted.
It was a much nicer day today than we've had in several weeks. It wasn't raining, or super-hot or super-humid. I've been keeping my window open for the fresh air.
