Monday so far

I turned off the computer at 11:30 p.m., after talking with A. for an hour.  I went to bed a little after 1:00 a.m.  I don't think it took me long to get to sleep.  For the last hour or so I was in bed, I was on the edge of consciousness.  I got up with my alarm at 10:00 a.m., so that was good.

It's been a quiet day.  I went outside and worked on plant things.  I put the sun-loving plants out on the table in the back yard, and the shade-lovers on the porch.  I went around and smelled the flowers.  Something ate the top leaf off the very poisonous lily-of-the-valley.  If it was a small animal, it doesn't bode well for it.  I went back to the very back of the yard and smelled the winter honeysuckle.  I want to enjoy that while it lasts.  One of the carnations that was in the raised bed seems to be trying to come back.

I suggested to Dad that we dig up some of the apple mint that flops over onto the driveway and path to the front door, and plant begonias there instead.  Mom liked that idea.  She complains about driving over the apple mint and how it falls into the path.  It turned out that the apple mint was growing several inches over the driveway, from stems that were in the dirt.  I planted some of the apple mint Dad dug up by the west side of the house, not far from the herb garden.  It looked like it was going to start to rain, so I moved the sun-loving new little plants to the porch.  The porch has a roof.

Slightly later: We got a message that my "blue-blocking" sunglasses were in.  I went to the opticians.  The sunglasses are orange, and when I looked through the windshield, everything had a weird tint.  It's not as weird a tint looking at the computer.

Later: I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for a bit.  Te is writing a fic with the working title: "Have You Tried Sodomy?"  They haven't gotten to the sodomy yet, but I'm sure they will.  Te does not let you down when it comes to sodomy.

A few days ago I saw a very funny Goodreads review.  I don't remember the book being reviewed, or the reviewer's name.  What I remember is the line: "It was like a Sean Michael book, but without the fisting."  I cracked up.  The first Jarheads novel I read, the first chronologically in the characters' lives, though not the first published, I kept thinking, "There will be plot any time now.  Any minute, plot will happen."  I have no such excuse for reading the next five books.  (And quite a number of short stories.)  In Sean's books in general, the protagonists are usually likeable, and the books are fun to read.  Several of the people I follow have told me not to feel guilty about reading books with no plot.

Later still: I finished Carry the Ocean.  I thought it was very good.  Hopefully it will give people more understanding about the various disabilities some of the characters had.  I liked that no one was magically "cured" by love, but that they worked hard at managing their disabilities, and were given tools and "modifications" to use.

Te updated her new sodomy fic.  I'm sure they're going to get to the sodomy.  They took a detour to fellatio, and I think they'll take another detour to rimming.  But sooner or later, the act in the title will happen.
