Saturday so far

There hasn't been much of it yet for me.  For some reason I felt afraid to go to sleep last night, but once I fell asleep I slept nearly twelve hours.  I can't begin to explain it.

Before that weirdness (Friday night), I was reading some newer Changeling novellas, and re-reading some older ones.  I finished a line edit.  It wasn't a terribly exciting day.  I read some chapters of The Golden Age of Gay Fiction again.  I looked to see if any of the books mentioned as forgotten by most had been done as e-books.  They had not.  Amazon had some available, and some of the used ones at low prices.  Perhaps I'll get some next month.

Today: I got my bag of Jasmine Pearl tea.  I had a cup, then made up ten "bagettes" with a tablespoon full of tea each in them.  The directions say that it should be a tablespoon to eight ounces of water, but that's awfully strong.  I tried that, and it was a bit more than half in the glass teapot.  I boiled more water and filled the teapot.  By then the tea in the original eight ounces of water had been steeping for quite a while, and the tea with more hot water added was plenty strong enough.

I need to think of a birthday present for Mom.  Her birthday is the 24th.  She keeps saying she wants me to make earrings for her, and then she's so picky about what she wants, and takes forever to decide.  Maybe I'll just give her a choice of about a dozen kinds of stone or glass beads and have her pick out of them.

Aside from that, I went out to smell the roses -- quite literally.  The mystery pink rose had a couple of buds, one slowly opening and one still in tight bud.  A flower on 'Duchesse de Brabant' was in full bloom.  I'll pick more blossoms from the mystery pink rose when the buds are more open.
