Saturday so far

I went to sleep at 9:30 p.m. Friday night, slept very lightly, and woke around 5:15 a.m.  That was ridiculous.  I don't like it when I get sleepy so early.  I got some laundry done.

Mom and I went to the post office.  They were advertising stamps that have vintage flower seed packets on them, but that particular post office didn't have them yet.  They had the "forever" stamps that are white roses, though.  There was a line.  I'd brought my Nook with me.  There were noisy children in the line, so I couldn't concentrate enough to read fiction.  I read some of the Nook User Guide.  After our trip to the post office, we went to the grocery store.  I got what I wanted pretty quickly, but Mom waffled over everything.  She doesn't usually take quite that long to decide what she wants.  I put my iPod on and listened to music, and that helped.  I'm not generally a fan of the music -- well, Muzak -- playing at the grocery store.

At home, the sweet briar had several flowers open.  This had attracted bees.  They were smaller than bumblebees.  I wondered if they could be honeybees, though I've heard honeybees are getting quite rare in the country.  Whatever kind they were, there was practically one for each flower.  A couple of the flowers of 'Mme. Isaac Pereire' should be opening soon.  The sepals are nearly all the way down.  I'll go outside again and take pictures of the sweet briar flowers.

Later: I took some flower pictures.

Later still: I read A War of Frontier and Empire: The Philippine-American War, 1899-1902 by David J. Silbey.
