Saturday so far

I turned off the computer a little before 11:30 p.m., and went to bed around 12:30 a.m.  I woke around 8:45 a.m., so that wasn't bad at all.

Mom went to the library and grocery store in the morning.  I wasn't moving that fast, but I did sit under my light for an hour.  I spent a good part of that hour sorting out all the free e-books I'd gotten on Dad's and my Nooks.

Mom brought The New Jim Crow home from the local library.  The copy in the university library where she works is lost.  That university is an HBCU (Historically Black College or University).  Obviously someone was interested in the book.  The dean of academic affairs is the person who wanted Mom to get the book for the university, so Mom will be ordering a new copy.  I was interested because two of the free Nook books were Building a Movement to End the New Jim Crow and The New Jim Crow Study Guide and Call to Action.

Mom and I went to an Amish market in the afternoon.  It was very busy, and the parking lot was just crazy.  Eventually I found a space.  We got jellies and jams and cheese and snacks and ham salad.  I found strawberry rhubarb jam, which I know I like.  I also decided to try elderberry jelly and loganberry jelly.  I tried the elderberry jelly at home.  It tasted quite similar to grape jelly to me, and grape jelly is not among my favorite jellies, but it was pretty good.  Dad says it's supposed to be good for you.  I tried havarti dill cheese, too, which was pretty good with rye bread.  Even though it was really crowded there, it was a productive trip for us.

YMCA-P. called and I talked with him.  I chatted with Riah a little bit.

After dinner, Mom and I went to Wal-Mart and then to the grocery store.  It was just a quick trip to the grocery store to get milk.  Mom will do her big grocery shopping trip tomorrow.

S.M. and I played phone tag.  I'll call her back or e-mail her tomorrow.
