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.
