And that is where I got this 6 lb 12 oz / 3.06 kg can of black beans. Isn’t it delightful? I think so. Black beans are neato.
I love Costco, their bulk food, their samples, how they have everything you need to survive. If you ever wanted to, you could easily live there. I want to. I want to live in Costco, maybe. Oh I don’t know… I have mixed feelings on the issue.
So back to the beans. After opening my beastly can o’ beans, I proceeded to make some black bean soup, complete with tomatoes, corn, peppers, onions, and garlic. It was deliciouso! Then Stacy, Ally, Ting, and I sat around the table, ate yummy soup, and talked about what we are thankful for. After all, it is Thankful Thursday.
I got a very lovely email from Brother today. Twas nice and long even had pictures! I miss Jakey Boy quite a lot and wish he were here in Hawaii with me instead of in New Jersey. He goes to dental school in New Jersery. Wow. My bro is in dental school. Impressive. I’m so proud of that brother of mine, who in a few years will be referred to as Dr. Jakey, or Dr. Jakey Boy, or maybe Dr. Owens, yeah, probably Dr. Owens. Anyways, I just wanted to write and say that I like my brother. I’m so lucky to have a cool brother like Jakey Bob. This was the last picture we took at the airport right before we sent him off to New Jersey land. Sad day. Twas quite sad when he left, but Christmas is coming in two months! Which means not only snow, Alaska, home, family, Christmas trees, winter wonderland, but I’ll also see Jakey boy!
And now for more bad news… last night there was another roachie in our humble abode, but he was not dead on his back like the other two. He was scurrying around our kitchen floor. I screamed and panicked as I stood on the coffee table and told my roommate to get it. But alas, she is similarly scared of the roachies. Before we took any sort of action, he ran away seeking refuge in this weird creepy cupboard. So for the worst news yet in this story… Mr. (or Mrs.) Cockroach is still in this house somewhere, probably waiting to attack me at any moment…
100 Loves of Jerusalem, that I miss so much, (and the list is in no order whatsoever, just the first 100 things that popped into me noggin):
Got together with a couple lovely Jerusalem ladies. Happy! Ate acai bowls. Yum. Drove to costco. Talked a lot. About school. About our fellow JCites. About our incredible four months in the Holy Land. And about how we miss it all so so much. Can’t stop thinking about it, ever.
…the best beach day yet!
This weekend has been delightful, because for eight hours I got to hear divine instruction from prophets and apostles. What a blessing General Conference is. I love it.
I must say, though these events may seem like preparations for All Hallow’s Eve, they are actually just regular ol’ everyday occurrences in my good life. Meaning that I frequently take crazy pictures with crazy people, and that I like to dye my hair dark, and who doesn’t love a little neon orange, especially on your toes? And since I practically live on the beach, it so happens that I’ll see a remnant of some sea creature on occasion.
