Tuesday so far

I turned off the computer at 11:00 p.m., and sat up and read until about 1:45 a.m.  It took me some time to get to sleep.  I woke at 11:45 a.m. again.  I was doing better for a while there.

It's raining, but I don't have to be anywhere, and the plants need it.  I had been watering the ones that looked particularly dried out for the couple of days previous.  Many of the plants I got are tolerant of hot, dry conditions.  The portulaca and patchouli are doing very well in the heat.  The blush-pink-flowered geranium looks very happy.

Later: I wrote back to WhiteSheepCBD.  We've been talking about independent e-publishing companies.

Professeur Blanchard actually wrote back to me.  He recommended Queen Margot.  It was nice of him to write back.

I went out briefly, but it was still raining lightly, so I looked at the flowers from a distance and just got the mail.  I like having some of the scented geraniums by the path to the front door, but the pink-flowered, bronze-leaved begonias are doing really well tucked into the herb garden, and I'm thinking of switching them so the pink-flowered begonias are by the path.

I talked to J. for a while.  K. had texted me that she and J. really liked "One for the Money."  I left the DVD with them.  J. said they had indeed enjoyed that.  I said that if J. were interested, I had 1 to 19 of the By-the-Numbers books.  He asked if I had the Between-the-Numbers books, assuming that I would, which I do.  What I should do is get J. to read the Black Dagger Brotherhood books.  They're so over-the-top, he might enjoy them.  I read part of The King, but the part I was reading was mostly about the Shadows, which have a whole 'nother mythology of their own.  Not that I don't like shadow assassin characters, but I thought I'd be reading about Wrath.  It's another book that's an urban paranormal saga, as someone (Lesley W.?) commenting on a Dear Author review labeled the books.  If I had gone into it expecting to read about everything but Wrath, I would have been a lot happier.

Slightly later than that: Mom and I went out and got takeout.  We got egg drop soup, pork with mushrooms, and shrimp with lobster sauce.  It was a change from the usual pork egg foo young.

I texted a bit with J.-PA.
