Friday so far

I don’t really remember when I went to bed, but it wasn’t that late for me – perhaps 2-something?  I woke at 11:30 a.m.  After doing my morning routine, I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp for half an hour.  I’ve been trying to do that every day, though the times that I do it vary.  I’m not exactly establishing a good circadian rhythm.  I need to work on that.

While I was under the lamp, I read a bit of Intersex in the Age of Ethics.  I’d read it before.  I think I first read it in 2006 or 2007 or so.  I finally got my own copy a few years ago.  My copy has a lot of underlining.  It was used as a textbook.  I erased a little of the underlining.  I may pick up with doing that.

Alice Domurat Dreger first wrote Hermaphrodites and the Medical Invention of Sex, then Intersex in the Age of Ethics, as she heard from modern-day intersexed people interested in the historical book.  She’s written a book about conjoined twins as well.  I read it, but now can’t find it.  I doubt I would have given it away.

I went out briefly, as it’s supposed to snow later and I wanted to get outside for a bit.  The ornamental kale Dad planted several weeks ago still looks good.  They’re purple-centered ones.

Aunt P.T. and my cousin J. are supposed to come for lunch on Sunday.  Uncle P. is having a holiday gathering at his house on Saturday, but it’s at least a three-hour drive for us, and Mom and Dad have a funeral they want to go to.  I may call Aunt P.T. and ask if I can meet her somewhere along the New Jersey Turnpike and go with them to Uncle P.’s holiday celebration.

PaperMoon and I are talking about Into the Garden with Charles, which I finished a little after midnight last night.  Skip grew a lot of plants I tried to grow.  I succeeded with a few of them.  I recommended E.A. Bowles, Elizabeth Lawrence, and Louise Beebe Wilder’s books to PaperMoon.

I got a lot of laundry done.  I doubt I’ll really go on a long driving adventure tomorrow, but I wish I could go see the family.
