Paul Neyron rose 2


I did laundry late at night, and went to bed around 1:30 a.m. or so.  I slept til 11:15 a.m., which was way too late.

Mom says it's terribly humid out, but is still considering a shopping trip to the usual grocery store.

Later: Mom and I went to the university where she used to work so she could pick up an interlibrary loan book.  She caught up with a couple of the library staff folks.  On our way home, we stopped at a Super-Walmart and I picked up a few things.  It was a productive trip for me.

I started reading some of the books about castrati and eunuchs that I'd gotten yesterday after we got home.

Later still: A. and I had trouble getting in touch by phone.  I think I had very poor reception in the den.  I went downstairs, and we finally were able to hear each other.  We ended up talking for nearly an hour and a half.

The 'Maid of Orleans' sambac jasmine continues to bloom.  It's done pretty well this year.
