Friday so far

I went to bed around 12:30 a.m. or so.  I didn't fall asleep right away, but I don't think it took me very long to go to sleep.  I woke at 6:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep.

I signed up for a couple of "Night School" classes offered by the county.  They are for adults who want to learn hobbies, crafts, learn a language, learn about a subject, or go on a bus trip, etc.  I signed up for jewelry making and Sign Language 1.  I want to learn sign language.

I ordered fall-planted and spring-planted bulbs from Old House Gardens.  Some of them were rare even for a specialty bulb company.  Those are probably sold out already.  I didn't want broken tulips (tulips with a broken pattern on the flower that shows as stripes or flames of color), which was good, because they sold out fast.  I got "Butter and Eggs" daffodils.  I ordered jonquils last year, so they should come soon.  I ordered a "Tulip Diversity Sampler," which apparently has some of the tulips they have a lot of, but showing the wide range of their appearances.

Later: Mom and I went out and about, including to the library.  This week and into the next are the times to turn in the book lists from the adult summer reading program.  I looked on Goodreads for books I'd read recently, and filled in the list of ten books.  We came home briefly, then went out again to the Amish market.

I went out again in the early evening, to register for Friday Night Friends.  I couldn't register.  The front desk person at the Y said to come back on Tuesday when the people who could do it would be there.  That was a wasted trip.  I stopped at the library again to pick up more books to meet the criteria for the sixteen-book challenge.  I still need to read "a book being made into a movie this year," "a book 'everyone' has read but you," and "a book recommended by a librarian."  That would be The Danish Girl, To Kill a Mockingbird and Bring on the Blessings, respectively.  I tried to read them earlier in the summer and couldn't.  Maybe I'll get through them in the next few days.

I talked a little with A.J. and her sister B.  A.J. still has her cold.  I told her I'd see her next Friday.  I texted a bit with WhiteSheepCBD.  I chatted a little with Jamie.  It was nice catching up with zir.
