I got all but one item on my to-do list done today! And buying a sack of satsumas got postponed because of logistics.

First order of business was typing up a recommendation letter for that former student. Next was heading out for a bunch of errands.

First stop was voting. Lots of parking, no lines. Of course, the Congressman up for reelection has essentially no challengers.

Second stop was the print shop I use, to fax the rec letter to its destination.

Next stop was a nursery, where I ordered a crepe myrtle tree. (Note to self: call the people who mark off your yard where stuff is buried, like gas and phone lines.)

I eventually made it to the recycle place (road work created one-way traffic and long lines) to dump the newspapers. Unfortunately, two of the bags escaped as I dumped. Grocery sacks are an endangered species nowadays. The last time I dumped papers I gave a bit of thought to making holding sacks, with handles on the bottom so I don't lose them. After losing two today, I may have to give that option a bit more thought. For my copious free time.

By then it was time for a lunch break, and I started reading a Sister Fidelma mystery. After lunch I got gas, then had a sudden urge to get my oil changed and car washed. (The same place does both.) That took a bit over an hour--they are massively shorthanded. But, the waiting area is clean and they have snacks and drinks for sale. I read a bunch more.

With a lovely clean car (complete with its fresh oil) I headed for PJ's to keep on reading. No geek books today--Peter Tremayne writes good mysteries. And there I stayed till it was about time to go next door to BK and meet my student.

And that took care of everything on the list except for the satsumas, and my "trail" did not go near that place.

Now I have three days of work coming up.
