I have a perpetual calendar with quotes on it that I've been flipping through for years now. I found today's quote so amusingly fitting for the occasion, I had to put it here:

     The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them.     --Mark Twain

     And yes, I devoured the last Harry Potter book. Read from 6 pm to about 10:20 last night, and from 7:35 am to 11:00 this morning. It was superbly delicious, and those 759 pages were consumed in about 7 hours and 23 minutes. What a feast! I took notes as I went along--my most enraged moment was on page 261, and my teariest on page 700.

     On a completely different note, my first morning glories bloomed today! Two of them, though only one was open at 7:30 when I went out to get a photo. Thirteen days later than last year, but still better than the years when they don't get underway until August. Thank you God, for blue, blue flowers!
Emotional Status:
groggy groggy from too much reading!

That's great! Just remember they need to have something to vine on like a fence or trellis. As for winter, up here and in most of the US they're grown as annuals. Either buy a new seed packet in the spring, or collect seeds in the fall (but the seeds tend to revert to a smaller, dark-violet flower in my experience).

It's hanging in there! Been a pretty rough summer and it shows, but at least I haven't lost anybody lately.
