I love new books .........
Two books about herbs that I ordered from Amazon came today. They both look like they will be informative as well as full of beautiful pictures and illustrations. I will curl up in my chair with them later tonight. New books always make me happy.
We've had a wet couple of days, but we needed the moisture. It is warm today, so with the high humidity it almost feels like a sauna when the sun peeks out for a few minutes. We have a tornado watch in effect for awhile this evening, but it looks calm right now.
After doing my weekly house-cleaning today, I planted some vinca around the light pole in front of the house. I've tried different things in that spot and vinca does so much better than anything else. If I find something that works well, I will stick with it. I had 10 plants left over, so I planted them in some pots on the deck. I'll probably pick up some petunias tomorrow and plant them in pots.
I went for my annual physical week before last. I've gotten all my lab and test results back - everything was normal. I didn't think anything would be wrong, but it's always nice to be given a clean bill of health. I still have an appointment for a colonoscopy on the 13th. I'm trying not to think about it. I have put off having this done for years. This time the doctor didn't ask me about it, he just made the appointment and told me when it was. I guess he knew I would keep putting it off.
