Sunday so far

I turned off the computer at 11:00 p.m.  I read a novella of Eli Easton's that had "prairie dog" in the title, and then started reading the next book in that setting, Stolen Suitor.  I went to bed around 1:30 a.m., but couldn't get to sleep.  I got up briefly, and then tried again.  I didn't have to be anywhere today, so I didn't take Benedryl.  I must have finally drifted off.  I got up at 10:30 a.m., and that could have been better, but wasn't as bad as it could have been.  I was very congested when I woke up, so I took an allergy pill then.

I got the free ARe book.  It's a box set called "Chicago Underground."  It sounded dark and gritty.  I got other free books from BookBub.

I went to Tyler Arboretum.  I got a membership.  Members get a preview day of the plant sale.  The lady at the entrance building said that the crabapples and the dogwoods were good, but that it was a little too early for the lilacs.  I went as far as the crabapples.  They were really pretty.  There were a lot of bees around them.  I did not get to the dogwoods.  They were having a tour of a historic old house on the grounds, so I looked in there.

J.-PA told me she'd looked up free Kindle Amish books, and found quite a few.  I found some.  I talked to YMCA-P. a couple of times.

I went out to the yard.  The second set of violas had kind of come back from wilting.  I planted them in the herb garden and watered them.  I watered the rosemary, winter savory and oregano.  The rosemary and winter savory seem to be bouncing back,  but the oregano still looks wilted.  The lemon balm is coming up in the herb garden.  Dad and I planted the Southern magnolia in the spot where 'General Jacqueminot' had died.  There was already a stake there.  Dad planted the forsythia that had been in a windowbox type pot in a big round pot.  I watered the pansies.

Later: I read several free "sweet, clean" Amish books, some of which seemed more realistic than others.  I finished up The Stolen Suitor, which I thought was very good.
