Day to Day

Have you tried those Hershey’s chocolate cherry kisses? I thought I would hate it since I dislike chocolate covered cherries. I never understood the point of the creamy stuff in the center. Wasn’t it supposed to be a chocolate covered cherry not a cherry wrapped in milky stuff covered in chocolate? The kisses were actually not bad but still had a mass of the creamy stuff at the center of a chocolate kiss. Not something I would buy a bag of, one was more than enough.

I am still trying to get everything back into its normal place after the almost rental. Right now, my place still has that stripped look. My potato plants are doing amazing. I cannot wait for little spuds. The rest of my plants are still tiny. I need to pick up a few tomato plants for the porch as well but I am not doing as many as I did last year. I gave tomatoes away by the handful every two weeks and still had too many for one person. I have planted zucchini and onions as well. I am not sure if I have posted about this or not. I managed to make some of the best chili I have ever had a few weeks ago. I made regular chili, using black beans, red cannelloni beans, pinto, and great northern beans. I also added diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and a can of seasoned tomatoes with onions and peppers. I diced green, yellow, celery, carrots, and red bell peppers and one onion and added that. I then added a frozen mixture of veggies that I had in the freezer. With the usual seasoned ground beef, cheese, and sour cream it was amazing. The best part was the crisp veggies that added texture to the whole thing. It was great with some bread and a big glass of lemonade.

I am in the middle of re-reading Twilight. I wanted to read the parts concerning Wuthering Heights but I wound up just re-reading the entire book. I enjoy the series but I keep wanting to smack Bella upside the head. She is so wound up in Edward that she does not exist without him, until the final book, only when she is a vampire can she seem to stand up for herself and her decisions. Even then, it is only to protect the others. She seems to have no concept of self worth or self-esteem. I know I had little self-esteem when I was in high school but it seems to be part of her innate personality to be utterly selfless. It is a bit disturbing.

I am also reading Gladiatrix, a mediocre novel about a Spartan priestess that is sold into slavery and made into a female gladiator. So far, she had everyone loving her and has the personality of tofu. I am still waiting to see if the book gets to any real plot twists or angst.
