Friday so far

I went to bed a little after midnight, but didn't get to sleep.  I got up briefly at 1:30 a.m., but quickly went back to bed.  I got up at 6:30 a.m., but quickly went back to bed then, too.  I finally officially got up for the day at 10:00 a.m., when my alarm went off.

It is a nice day out.  I am thinking of going to Longwood Gardens (www.longwoodgardens.org), but I am low on energy.  I think Dad passed his cold along to me yet again.  Tonight is the night the Friday Night Friends watch the Trolls movie.  I am tempted to go see Dr. Strange instead.

I watered the inside plants.  The 'Maid of Orleans' sambac jasmine has buds again.  I chatted a bit with A.W.

A few hours later: I went to Longwood Gardens.  I was still low on energy, so I got a scooter.  I saw the conservatories and ate at the Terrace Restaurant.  At the restaurant, you need to leave the scooters parked outside, but that was okay.  I didn't wear myself out.  Some of the camellias were starting to bloom.  It was the Chrysanthemum Festival, so of course there were thousands of chrysanthemums.  They had paper lanterns strung up in some of the rooms and passageways.  They were nice and colorful.  I smelled a sweet olive and liked the scent.  I may get one of those as the plants I brought in for the winter die off, and if Logee's has another fragrant plant sale.

Later: The Friday Night Friends watched the Trolls movie.  It was better than I expected, pretty cute.  When I got home, I watched the last little bit of Anderson Cooper 360 and then watched Don Lemon.
