day for errands

Mom and Dad had dropped Dad's car off to get repairs last night, so Dad took my car to work.  He came home at lunchtime to get me so we could go get his car, and I could have mine back.  I went off on various errands, to the grocery store, to check to see if my phone bill payment had gone through, and to pay other bills.  I had a bit of fun time going to Party City and getting a few glowsticks.  They were out of several colors, but I got white bracelets and the little green glowsticks on lanyards.  It was really busy there a couple of days before Halloween.  Several people were buying costumes, and various Halloween accessories.  I made a mental note to go there November 1st and get Halloween things on sale cheap.  If I can find a Halloween Adventure store around, I might check there the first couple of days in November, too, when prices are slashed.

Since it was nice out today, I managed to get outside, and enjoy my pots of fragrant herbs.  I found a pot of rosemary that had survived the summer by rooting into the soil of a big pot.  The scented-leaf geraniums are doing well, and some of the begonias look fabulous.  The patchouli had some leaves with holes in them (what would eat patchouli?) but was doing all right.  I didn't bring any pieces of herbs in today, but just went around and sniffed various ones for the pleasant scents.  I got to the side yard, where the mystery pink rose had a bud partly open, enough to get the sweet scent of the rose.  If it stays nice for another day or two, I'll pick that.

So, bill paying and errands, a little fun shopping, and enjoying my flowers and herbs while they last.
