Monday so far

I didn't go to sleep until late, and slept late.  Mom and Dad went to an appointment for Dad and then to a major shopping area, to the L.L. Bean store there.

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.
