Thursday so far

I turned the computer off before 11:00 p.m.  I went to bed at midnight or so.  I don't think it took me very long to get to sleep.  I got up with my alarm at 10:00 a.m., so I slept a lot.  Getting up at 10:00 a.m. wasn't bad, though.

Die_traumerei posted the last chapter of her fic, "C8H10N4O2 (The Building Block of Love)."  It was a happy ending, after some parts with angst and some sweet parts.  I very much enjoyed the fic.  It was an interesting exploration of the work it takes to start and maintain a healthy relationship, and negotiating different attitudes towards disability, and communication.

There was a new chapter of "Waiting Room," too, and I read that.  That's almost at an end.  Things have improved a lot for Bucky through the fic.  It's a high school AU, no powers.

I did laundry.  After Dad gets home from his exercise class, I hope to go to the Amish market.  They have such good foods.  In the meantime, I'll be doing more laundry.

E.M. called about my lunch invitation.  She is super-busy next week, but we will try to get together for lunch sometime.

I noticed that the hyacinth was blooming.  It seems like I only got that a few days ago.  That was fast.

A few hours later: I made it to the market.  I saw L.F. from the secondhand bookstore there.  We exchanged numbers.

I shopped in the jams and jellies aisle.  I got more strawberry-rhubarb jam to replace the one of Mom's I'd eaten.  I got quince and passionfruit jellies and bumbleberry and F.R.O.G. jams.  The bumbleberry is a mix of strawberry, red raspberry and blueberry.  It was strong, but not in a bad way.  The F.R.O.G. jam has figs, raspberries, orange juice and ginger in it, so I assume that's where the initials come from.  I haven't tasted that one yet.  We only have so much room for jelly jars in the refrigerator.  I liked the quince jelly.

I got cheeses, too.  I got provolone, muenster, Amish butter, dill havarti, smoked cheddar, and roasted garlic cheeses.  I got citrus splash juice and strawberry lemonade.  I got a couple of glazed doughnuts.  When I got home, I had a good early dinner of bread and cheese and bread and jelly.

Later: I watched a couple of episodes of "Call the Midwife," finishing up the third season.

Later still: I chatted a little with Riah and a little with WhiteSheepCBD.
