Yesterday I made some zucchini bread that turned out amazing! I added some walnuts and dark chocolate chips also which really made it. I seriously have so much zucchini, I don’t know if I can even use it all. I thought I was going to be able to use a lot of it for the bread but yeah, not so much. It takes time to scrape the zucchini and get it into the flaky pieces you need for the bread too.

The recipe I used is linked here. It was a really good recipe and turned out well.

Now I’m relaxing for the evening and drinking a fresh cup of spearmint tea with leaves I grew myself!

Added a bit of raw honey as well!

I plan on reading a bit of War of the Worlds tonight; actually I plan on finishing it. I need to because I want to move on to a new book. I’m ready. Honestly, I think I liked Time Machine better than WOTW. In my opinion, traveling through time and seeing the fate of mankind as something completely different than what you anticipated as well as disturbing and dangerous, stuck without your time machine to get back is a much more jarring experience than aliens invading Earth. However, the sentence below may make it just as jarring.

“I felt the first inkling of thing that presently grew quite clear in my mind, that oppressed me for many days, a sense of dethronement, a persuasion that I was no longer a master, but an animal among the animals, under the Martian heel. With us it would be as with them, to lurk and watch, to run and hide; the fear and empire of man had passed away.”

Probably the creepiest part of the entire book: the main character has been heard from within his hiding spot and he must curl up amongst some coal while the tentacle of the Martian creeps around examining things and it just took the curate and killed him. Talk about true terror.

“Surely, if we have learned nothing else, this war has taught us pity—pity for those witless souls that suffer our dominion.”
