Corn Bread and Chili Night!!

So pretty much. I was browning the ground beef for chili this afternoon and I was like, "I hate the smell of ground beef." I'm not a vegetarian, but ground beef just kind of grosses me out lately. I'm not sure why. I was feeling kind of blahish about eating chili tonight after that experience...but now that it's been simmering for over 2 hours and I just tasted it, I'm looking forward to it! =] And corn bread mmm. Little sis is super jealous. Sorry little sis, maybe I can bring you some leftovers. =]

Mmmm! As Rachael Ray would say, "Yum-o!"

Today was so nice and sunny, and hot!!! It's sort of a bummer that all of summer camp season was rainy, and now that it's over and everyone is back in school it's gorgeous, and hot!!! Luckily I live on the water. =] This afternoon I went down and sat on the beach to spend some time with God. It's so nice to just change your normal routine sometimes. I would rarely take the time to walk down to the beach...(which is a shame if you know where I live!) but today was just so nice and beautiful, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Then little sis called and we talked for 45 minutes or so, just catching up. =] I don't consider myself much of a phone talker, but I was enjoying chatting about nonsense and life with her. =]

I talked to the lady from the place I applied at last week today. She said I could come in Tuesday at 11 for a sort of trial/interview. I'm excited. It's nice to be at home, but when Ben's gone it can be sooo boring! He was gone from about 9 - 4:30 today When he got back I ran to meet him!! Only to find out that he had to go back... =[ He only came home because he forgot his wallet and needed to pick some things up for the job. Bummer. I didn't picture my evening sitting in a beanbag chair, watching Charles in Charge on Netflix, and knitting. (Okay, okay, I did picture the knitting. =])

My progress from last night! I did more today, but I'll save that for a later post...=]

And finally, a fun quiz I got from lil sis on Facebook.

Which Starbucks Drink Are You?

(I couldn't resist)

Oooh, my fave. =]
