Things have been so busy in general that it was great to have 4 solid days of free time. I finished reading twilight, got crackalackin on some home organization projects (which are all, of course, only half finished) and did some cooking.
I was skeptical about Twilight but Chelsea insisted that I read it. I trust her opinion on books but I think she’s biased when it comes to stories about Vampires. Our tastes always diverged somewhere between Snoop and Anne Rice. But she was relentless and since I love discussing what I’ve read with her I took her up on it. It took me a week to get through and I thought I was over it about 2/3 of the way through but the sexual tension and then the ending kept me going. I don’t think I’d shell out for the rest of the series but since she’s kindly offered to ship them to me I think I’ll push through. While I’m waiting for them to arrive I have the prequel to Anne of Green Gables that I borrowed from the library to read. I hope it’s not just full of sad things that happen to orphan children. We’ll see.
Last night we made pizza for dinner using a simple recipe from the BHG cookbook. The crust was just ok. It lacked chewiness and flavor as far as I’m concerned. Ben thinks it was pretty good but that I made the crust too thin and crispy for his liking.
I also made a huge batch of ‘chex’ mix with all kinds of goodies that I like in it. And I made a big batch of granola that tastes fantastic using a recipe from Martha’s website originally published in Body + Soul magazine.
Tomorrow it’s back to work for me but it will be a short week… I think, you never really can tell. What have you been up to? Oh, and that patch came out of the wash just fine, yay.
