oversleeping Monday

Well, I was very bad, and slept through a 1 p.m. meeting with a couple of other garden club ladies, to work on an arrangement.  My sleep schedule is incredibly disrupted, even for me.  However I made plans to meet with S.(S.), one of the German-born ladies in the club, to work on the arrangement of driftwood and shells.  That meeting is at 3 p.m. Tuesday, and I'd better make it.  The next time S. and B. are planning to get together is 10 a.m. Wednesday.  I'll set an alarm and see what I can do.  S. was talking about making flowers out of shells.  I didn't think I was that creative, but I said I'd see what shells I had.  I have some beach glass and a little vase that has salt iridescence on it.  I'll bring those and see if there's anything we can do with them.

I don't know if I posted yesterday that I'd read Josh's This Rough Magic.  I think it's the one he had to write in two weeks because of his insane schedule.  I couldn't tell, though.  It's a historical, and very good.  The romance is not as understated as some, but it's not in-your-face obvious, either, how the characters feel about each other at first.  The era called for discretion, and Josh does that atmosphere very well.

Anyway, I talked that up on AE's m/m romance thread.  U. didn't think it had come out for Kindle yet, so I called one of "my people" to see if Mobipocket was the Kindle format.  Just like me supplying all the links for U. to get L.B.'s books, Josh can thank me, too.  As I've said, Josh was getting love on that thread before I ever posted there, but U. is a huge fan of Josh's.

I did a quick proof on a Changeling short story the night before -- or was it last night?  I still pick up proofreading here and there for Changeling, as needed.  I'm pretty up-to-date with the editing there, with one I've already read through due on Thursday.

R.A. had called me a couple of times.  I called her back to say I'd be at the house for a few days.  I was glad I'd put all my editing on a USB drive.  That thing goes with me everywhere I go.  I don't seem to have forgotten anything this time.  I want to get some CDs I had left here to put on iTunes again, since I lost my music when my computer died.

Dad helped me plant two roses, 'Duchesse de Brabant' and "Odee Pink."  They're in pots.  I'm not even pretending they're hardy.  'Kronprinzessin Viktoria' has a couple of buds on it.  That's the first one we'd planted, soon after it arrived.  I hope to get the rest of the Tea roses planted sometime this week.

Not a terrific amount accomplished today, but hopefully I'll get more done tomorrow.  I'm happy about the roses, anyway.

Added: I went shopping direct on MLR's site, though it occured to me after I got the books that I probably could have gotten some from Fictionwise.  Well, I'll try to think of Fictionwise next time.  MLR doesn't even take your information, just does it all through PayPal.  I guess that means that you never actually get your own "bookshelf" there.  The stories sounded good, though.
