A note about my plants since I emptied the sun room of the storage and eBay stuff - there is plenty of room to reach all of the plant stands in the large 3-window bay-type window, and one puny little African violet has been nudged back to life and surprised me this morning by opening two pretty pink blooms! I've potted another of the succulents I rooted in water and planted a mum in a pot outside.

Some of the okra, the eggplant, and the tomatoes have been pulled and tomorrow I'll start weeding and digging for the next crops, probably broccoli, maybe cauliflower. I suppose I could try growing Brussels sprouts, but I'm not a huge fan so I'd be giving them to my daughter who does like them.

The back yard was finally mowed, but 3+ weeks out I'm still waiting for Northern Tool to get my trimmer into the store they're supposed to deliver it to. Lesson learned: I'll never again buy anything from them that they don't have in stock.

Middle of next week is Amazon Prime Day; I have a few items added to my wish list that I'll order if they're on sale. I've been working on getting the most functionality out of the devices I have here and have finally gotten the Adobe Digital Editions working on my Fire tablet HD and loaded several books (Bat Goddess told me about this a couple of years ago - the University of Chicago gives away a free eBook every month; if you get signed up for their email the note comes right about on the 1st and the send a link.) You need to use the Adobe authentication software and for the Fire I have to put the book into a Dropbox file and transfer it in that way; for some reason I can't get the computer to navigate to this tablet. The other device that has issues is my 2013 Sony SSD laptop; the USB ports are marginally useful so I've ordered a bluetooth mouse and will try that with the computer. If it isn't great I'll reset the computer to use in tablet mode and see if that helps. It's a touch screen and the mouse can be used elsewhere if it doesn't work on this device.
