Paul Neyron rose 2

Thursday so far

I turned the computer off at 11:30 p.m.  I reread "The Best Christmas Ever" for the umpteenth time.  I went to bed a little after 1:00 a.m.  I don't think I fell asleep right away, but I don't think it took me long to get to sleep.  I got up with my alarm at 10:00 a.m., so that wasn't bad.  I guess I got eight hours of sleep in.  At least it was light out by the time I got up.

I had toasted rice green tea.  I am feeling better, but still coughing and somewhat congested.  I finished up one box of Mucinex, but I have another.

I saw a tufted titmouse on the birdfeeder, and juncos on the ground.

I sorted out more book files.  I have the 2008 Dreamspinner Advent Calendar books in PDF form, but Dreamspinner doesn't offer the Advent package for 2008 anymore.  I guess a certain amount of authors got their rights back and republished elsewhere.  Andrew Grey's story is still available, but I have that as a PDF, and it was a short story.

I got a book featured in BookBub.  I looked at the publisher, and it was Dreamspinner Press, so I got it directly from there for sale.  That way it's in multiple formats and doesn't have DRM.

I said hi to A.W., and she gave me the first chapter of a story to proofread.  I didn't feel ambitious, but worked up the ambition to look it over.  This one has a duck shapeshifter, so I gave a quick lesson on ducks and geese in the chat box.

I don't have any plans for the day.  Mom and I got to the Amish market yesterday, so we don't need to go there today.

Later: I watered the plants.  The begonias are still blooming.  The sambac jasmine 'Maid of Orleans' had a flower.  The yellow jasmine (Jasminium humile 'Revolutum') has buds.  The patchoulis have the patchouli version of a flower.

Mom and I went to the library.  I was going to get Marrying Stone for her, so she could read that and then practice reading Simple Jess on an e-reader.  She said maybe after the holidays.

We went to the grocery store, and I got soda for the Friday Night Friends holiday party, and more Mucinex for me.
