Mom and I went to Wal-Mart later in the day. I'd run out of the green tea and cucumber soap I usually use. They didn't have it there, so I just got white Dove. I like the pink, as that's what Grandma S. used to use, but I don't think Mom likes that scent either. I've been using honeysuckle and rainforest glycerine soaps. They're scented, but not terribly strongly.
There are a couple of scented soaps I've tried that had scents I didn't like, but most I like. Anything from sandalwood to rose, from patchouli to bay rum to lavender, I usually like them. There are a number of COPA soaps I like, and when there was a Crabtree & Evelyn store I could get to, I used to shop there. I liked all their rose products. I've heard they have a specific rose named for them now, 'Evelyn'. It's an English rose. I believe they use it now for some of their rose-scented products. I liked the damask rose a lot.
Anyway, I got out of the house. It was warm out, so I wandered around the yard for a bit. The quince tree has several quinces, and I'd like to do something with them. I don't think it's enough to make quince jelly. I'll have to look at recipes. The mystery pink rose has a bud. That's gotten through several winters, so I'm not too worried about that. I wondered whether to cut the buds from 'Duchesse de Brabant', but I think I'll wait until the weather prediction is for frost. I'll see if they have the time to start to open outside.
No real plans for the evening. I still have plenty to read. I'm sure I'll wear out the videotape I taped Glee on by watching "The First Time" about a dozen more times. Such a good episode, though I now have random West Side Story songs stuck in my head for hours at a time. The actors did a good job with the songs. Some are trained singers and some aren't, but they covered the songs decently.
Later: An editing job was ready for me, so I did the first read-through. This week it's fairies.
