Errands, house cleaning, more errands, good rehearsal, and caught the end of a show.  Of particular interest: At Kohl's I ran across a somewhat Holy Grail item, a white, long sleeve, waist-length cardigan. Maybe it doesn't sound rare... but I've been looking for something like this for, oh, 15 years. So, WOW. (Everything usually has 3/4 sleeves, or short sleeves, or is too long in the body.) I suspect I will be buying another before they sell out, so I can stockpile for the next 15 years.

Also, Nyx Butter Lipstick is pretty impressive from the first wearing. Very pretty colors and feels as light and smooth as chapstick. Ulta has a buy one get one half off through Saturday...

I got a bur oak. It's a nice big white oak, with enormous acorns (up to 2" long) with big fuzzy caps that make them even bigger.

My tree is fairly young (about 12' tall) and in a 15 gallon container. My soil is of such, um, uncertain quality that the nursery recommended a young tree that can establish itself quickly and learn to deal with the rocks and clay.

It's going in the back yard where I can get some shade from the south. And I think I'm going to name it Marya, after the Russian woman from Hogan's Heroes (played by Nita Talbot). Because she wears furry hats like the acorn caps.
