Girls day out!

~Cayucos and SLO with Mom, Cherisa, and Hailey~
This is a house Ron is building in Cayucos.  It is super cute!
We drove by and he came running out, mainly to see Hailey! ;)
It is several streets up from the water, but you can still see a bit from the front windows.

Then we went down to walk the beach.
You can see the back of Hailey's hat, she was sound asleep!

Riding in the cart at Costco.

 Making Beef Jerky for the first time!
With Hunter Ligget camp coming up, I thought I should make some beef jerky.
(BTW, Patrick's reasoning why it is called 'jerky': "because you jerk when you take a bite".)
I called Lana Anastasia up and got her recipe.
I mixed together the herbs and spices and the meat out of the freezer to thaw partially.
Something happened and I left for most of the day.  Soon as I got back, I cut it up, seasoned it, and laid it on the dehydrator.  Matthew took it down to the "car-basement" and plugged it in for me.  When we got home from Tuesday night meeting, I rotated the trays and checked it.  It suddenly dawned on me that it would be too long to leave it until morning!  But what was I to do?  I didn't know if it would be okay to put it in the fridge overnight and start again in the morning...?  So I set my alarm for 2 and 1/2 hours and checked it/rotated trays.  Still not done.  Another 2 and 1/2 hours.  Rotated, still not done!  Another 2 hours later, I crawled out of bed and crept downstairs for the third time saying, "Done or not, it is going in the fridge!"  I didn't really know what it was supposed to look like, but it seemed to be about right, so up the steps balancing the trays, in the fridge it went, and I fell into bed and asleep...
My head had barely hit the pillow when Matthew's alarm went off, or so it felt!
I'm NOT ready for a puppy though when I saw this picture of David and Genna's,
I almost changed my mind!
