Wednesday so far

I turned off the computer a little after 11:00 p.m., and got sleepy by 12:30 a.m.  Of course, once I lay down I was wide awake.  I got up at 2:30 a.m. and had Benedryl.  I read for a while, then took Alka-Seltzer.  I lay back down at 3-something.  I woke up at 7:30 a.m., but was able to get back to sleep.  I woke again a little before 1:00 p.m.  I suppose that once the Benedryl works, it really works.

I got out and about a bit.  It is a nice day out.

I did laundry.

I picked up another couple of editing jobs.

Later: It got cold.  Dad and I brought in various tender perennials we'd potted up.  Most were geraniums and jasmines, but we also brought in the Canary Island broom and the bay tree.

The begonias had had it after a light frost, and so had the nasturtiums and patchouli.  The pineapple sage looked kind of droopy.  The lemon grass still looked okay, but I think tonight's frost will get it.

I talked to Riah for a bit.  On my side, I talked some about what plants I had, and which ones I usually get in the spring.

I could look back to the entries for the second Thursday in May, the Herb Sale, but I know what herbs I try to get.  Pineapple sage and pineapple mint are two.  I like having spearmint and lemon balm around.  They usually live through the winter.  I get scented-leaved geraniums, rosemary, and usually bay.  I like to get patchouli.

As for flowers, I like to get begonias, zonal geraniums, heliotrope and irises.  We have a lot of tiger lilies around, but the deer eat them.  We have a good number of roses still, too, which the deer eat as well.  Still, most have enough buds left to bloom in the late spring.

I called S.M. and talked to her for a while.  I texted with WhiteSheepCBD.

Later: I called YMCA-P. and talked to him for a bit.  I arranged to talk with A.

I worked on an editing job.

Later still: I talked with A. for about forty-five minutes.
