Friday so far

I went out and took pictures of the roses.  'Kazanlik' (a.k.a. 'Trigintipetala') has a flower open.  The Jacobite rose has flowers that are perhaps three-quarters of the way open.  'Ispahan' has a couple of fully open flowers, and a lot that are half-open, as well as dozens of buds showing color.  There might be a hundred buds on 'Ispahan'.  I doubt I'll actually count, but the bush is seven feet high and six or seven feet wide, and has numerous clusters of three to five buds.

I had leftover chicken tikka masala and basmati rice for breakfast.  This batch of tikka masala was hot enough (spicy enough) to make my body temperature noticeably rise, or that's how I perceived it.

I was all ready to go to the grocery store, only to find that the rearview mirror of my car had fallen off.  I'll have to wait and go with Dad when he goes to the shopping area.  The battery died recently, and now the rearview mirror has gone.  I don't think the fan is working either.  Well, the car is twelve years old.  It just seems that several things are going wrong around the same time.

Later: I went along with Dad while he went to the library to drop a book Mom had read off, then to the grocery store.  I got cream, basmati rice, and jasmine rice.  For our last stop, we got a rearview mirror repair kit from Pep Boys.  When we got home, I found that I already had jasmine rice, but it keeps.

I am doing my usual online reading.  I've been talking with G. of AE.  (Added months later: I must have been talking about Gunners.  It's not his real name.)
