Tonight I made 4 pints of pickles beets. I forgot that I had them boiling on the stove and I was wondering what the dirt smell was coming from. I even thought that my neighbors must be cooking something odd on the grill. Turns out it's me! I had a big mess to clean up. They had plenty of water left, just boiled over.
I went into the big town of Eau Claire and canceled 2 of my accounts with Wells Fargo. I set the trip counter on my truck. It's 34.3 miles one way to go to the bank. That's 68.6 miles round trip to deposit a pay check. I opened up an account with a local bank that I can go to before/during or after work. Much closer. It's just that I had that account with Wells Fargo way way back when it was still National Bank of Alaska. It's just one more link with Alaska that I have cut. (Sniff sniff)
To feel better, I went to a restaurant that a patron from the Library recommended. She had received a book about speaking Tagalog and we got to talking about Asian food and the lack of a good Thai place. This place was good. A mix of Thai and Chinese. It was the lunch buffet but even that was good. I looked at the menu and they had some dishes that I like. I will be going back and ordering off the menu. The buffet was not spicy enough for me.
When I got home I finished "The last Child" It was a good book. It was not a life changing book but it was a good plot, interesting characters. The writer told a good story. Sometimes that's all I need from a book. Just be a interesting story. On to the next book.
