Well then....

This hasn't been the most efficient day!  So, I get up and do my regular routine.  After breakfast, I settle in to watch a few episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. Still, so good!  I decide to take a break for a bit and re-read my book from last year and write some notes.  I wanted to have everything ready when November gets here.  I was working on that when my friend called.  She said that her pup was having issues and needed to take her to the vet.  I said I'd go with and got dressed and went up there.  We took Cocoa out there and there was no cars.  Weird for that place.  They are usually packed!  We went in and found out that Friday is the day they do surgeries and things so it would be after 4 before they could see Cocoa.  The vet's office is a bit out of town, so we didn't want to drive back here and go back later.  We left her and then went up the road a bit to a place where we love to eat.  We got lunch and then headed back.  We had to wait a while when we got back, but we finally got called back.  The vet thinks she has an ulcer and gave her the stuff to treat it. We took the little sweetie home.

I planned to just drop her off and stay at their house for just a few minutes.  I ended up staying several hours!  I finally headed home.  I had eaten lunch a lot earlier than usual. I didn't even have dinner!  It's almost 11pm and I haven't had dinner and at this point, I don't think I'm going to bother.  I haven't done my workouts either!   It's stretch day, so that isn't too bad to miss, but I love stretches.  I'll either do them after this or just do them tomorrow.  I also need to do my French lesson.  The reason I haven't done much since I came home, is that I got my book out and finished reading it and taking notes.  I got a few ideas for potential things for the new book, so I put those in my notes.  I want to have everything ready to go!  I also marked up my copy pretty good.  I found several typos that I missed last year on the edit. Oops! Gotta fix those.  Plus I saw a few things I wanted to change.  I'm really looking forward to continuing on with this story!

I set up a word count tracker in my bujo last night.  I'll share a picture of it later!


Well, Hell!

So much for getting on a roll with walking.  I didn't get to walk today.  I was planning on it after my lunch, too!  I did my usual morning routine and then had breakfast.  I started on Sailor Moon Crystal.  OMG it's SO GOOD.  It's SO much better than the old version of season 1.  I am in total love so far. I've watched 7 episodes.  It's so good!  

So, I was about to do my workouts, when I got a text from a friend.  He said that we'd eat around 5.  I knew this meant he was treating me to dinner, so I didn't have lunch at my regular time.  I just had a small snack to tide me over.  I usually eat 'lunch' at 4.  We went and ate and then he had a few errands to run.  I rode with and then he dropped me home.  It was around 8 by this point, so it was dark.  I wasn't going to walk in the dark!  While waiting on him earlier, I had gotten in my car to just see if I could crank it.  It actually cranked!  When I got back home, I decided to see if I could crank it again and drive it a short distance.  I was able to. YAY!  I didn't drive far, but it did fine for the entire trip.  I was glad to be able to do that.  I won't be driving it all willy nilly, but at least I CAN drive it if I need to!

I got my book from Nano out last night and started writing some notes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to do a sequel to it for Nano this year.  Unless I come up with an entirely different story, that is the plan.  I need to do a Nano tracker in my bullet journal.  The one I used last year was so helpful!  I had the chart on one side where I put what I did each night and the other side was a blank page.  On that page, I kept up with my characters.  I'll probably do that again this year.  I had a printable last year for tracking my progress.  This year, I plan to draw mine own.  I just need to go look for some inspiration online.  I'll post a picture when I'm done.  

I'm looking forward to Nano.  Since I 'won' last year, I know I can do that this year.  I plan to re-read my entire book and take notes as I go along so I don't repeat anything and so it will all be fresh.  I am ready! Yes, I'll be drinking a lot of coffee during November! :P


Walking on Wednesday.

I was going to get up today and do my regular routine.  I planned to eat breakfast and then go for  walk.  I felt sort of meh when I got up, so I decided to not walk that early.  I did watch Sailor Moon though! I watched the last five episodes of the series.  I was so sad for it to come to an end.  I'll probably start Sailor Moon Crystal in a few days.  I'm not sure if I want to start to tomorrow or not, we'll see.

As for walking, I did take one this evening.  I went around 6 and walked for about an hour.  I got home as it was getting dark.  I guess if I'm going to walk in the evenings, I need to start a bit earlier.  Plus, when the time change occurs, I'll REALLY have to walk earlier.  It's getting cooler here and feeling more like actual fall weather.  That is nice! I'm ready for some cool weather.  No cold, mind you, but cool.  I carried my hoodie with me when I walked, but I didn't need it.  It wasn't too cool and of course, I got warm walking!

I've been sleepy all day. I woke up tired.  I have been tempted to lay down and take a nap, but if I did, I wouldn't sleep tonight.  Hopefully tonight's rest will be better than last nights!


Not enough coffee!

Yes, it's been one of those days! This morning, I'm doing my usual routine.  I get up, have coffee, and then relax in  bed with my phone until breakfast.  A bit before time for breakfast, my phone rings.  My bff's son has lost his keys and needs to get in the house.  I have a spare key to their house for when they go out of town and emergencies like this!  I get up, get dressed, and walk up there.  I did get to see Cocoa, one of the two little pups I was keeping this weekend.  I wasn't there five minutes and his grandma came home. (She lives next door.) So, I talk to her a bit and head home.  Her dog is the other one I kept this weekend!

So I go home and have more coffee. :P  I then did my regular routine.  I did my workouts, I had lunch, and I relaxed a bit.  Bff's son calls again. lol  He wants to go get a journal to begin bullet journaling.  He was going to start before, but the journal he got the first time had thin pages and it bled, a lot.  I helped him get one like my first one.  It's an art sketch book, so the pages are really thick and nice. We did that and then we went to Starbucks. LOL!  Yes, I had Starbucks.  With me not being able to drive my car and not knowing when I'll be able to get there, I wasn't going to pass up that opportunity! :P I got a Maple pecan latte.  Yum!

I didn't walk today, but I hope to be able to tomorrow.  I need to get back into the habit.  I will enjoy getting out and I'll definitely enjoy losing weight!


Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


Finally!

I can sit and write a blog post for today.  It's been a long and busy one!  This morning, I got up and took the dogs out and then brought them in and had some glorious coffee.  I really needed it as I slept horribly last night.  I enjoyed every sip!  I did a few of my morning things and then had breakfast and more coffee! :P  I called my friend around 1:30 to check on their progress home.  They had just walked in their door!  I was surprised!  I jumped up, dressed, and walked the two dogs up.  Then, she drove me back down to get the crate and food that was left.  I rode with her to take that back and then I headed home.  I was going to do my workouts right then as it was almost time to do them, but I was tired and hot so I decided I'd get them in later.

I watched Sailor Moon until time for lunch.  I'm less than ten episodes from finishing! WAH!  I had a delicious lunch and then I went for a walk.  I walked down to Ballou Park.  I went in the park and then across the street into the shopping center.  I went in Dollar General to look around and then headed back.  I got a cute reusable drink cup in there that looks like a cola can.  It has  pink lid and there are gumballs on it.  I didn't really need it, but I bought it.  I thought it was on sale for 70% off, but it only rang up as 25% off.  I declined at first, but she tossed it in a hand basket to take back later and I felt bad for it so I bought it! LOL  Yeah, I'm weird.  In any case, it's now sitting here on my desk until I decide if I'm going to use it for drinks or for something else!

I ran out of the creamer that I really like today.  It's International Delight brand and the flavor is Caramel Macchiato.  When I bought it this month, I had a coupon for two of their products.  I got one of those and one of the one touch latte cans.  I also saw the store brand of the caramel creamer and decided to try it.  I did and it's almost exactly the same at the ID one. It's good and a bit cheaper.  That is always a good thing!

I came back from my walk and relaxed a bit.  It was really hot as I walked pretty fast.  I had my dinner and then watched some shows on HLN.  I did my workouts.  I washed two loads of clothes today and both are put away.  I also took a bath and washed my hair.  I'm all caught up on everything I needed to do today.  Go me!  Now, I'm just going to grab the Kindle and read until bedtime.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  I'll have the bed to myself, so that might help. You wouldn't think two little dogs would take up SO MUCH space! LOL!


Saturday and Starbucks....

I guess you can figure from the post title that I went to Starbucks today.  I hadn't planned to go, but I decided I wanted a latte.  I went and got a tall maple pecan latte.  It was really good, too!  I will try to not go again for at least a week. :p  I went and checked on my friend's house today and everything was okay up there.  I borrowed their van to make my Starbucks trip. :p

I really haven't done much of anything else today.  Well, that isn't exactly true.  I did my workouts and I took the pups outside many times.  It's just been sort of a blah day.  My dinner was extremely blah!  I bought a new frozen dinner the last time I went to the grocery store.  I tried it tonight and it was just so blah! lol  It was a new brand and it was teriyaki chicken.  It had brown rice in it.  That part was really good, but the rest wasn't much to talk about!  There was hardly any chicken in there.  Oh well.  Live and learn.  I only bought one package, so at least I don't have to worry about that!


Early deliveries FTW!

I actually got my Starbucks card order today!  It came a day earlier than the estimate.  That was cool.  I was happy with them.  There were some dupes in there, so I only got twenty new ones, but I'm still happy with the ones I got.

That is them.  I really like a lot of them.  They are a nice addition to my collection.  I went to Starbucks today and got a Cascara latte. :D  I also went by the post office.  I mailed four letters. Two regular pals and two potential new ones.  I received two letters and one that I could get because it's postage due and the pickup window isn't open after 3.  There was also a notice for something that was too big for my box.  I'll have to get back down there on Monday!  At this point, I'll probably have to walk.  I just hope it isn't raining!


Blogs!

I have started reading some blogs lately.  I decided to start adding them to the sidebar so everyone can enjoy them too.  Three are all blogs I've found recently.  Boho Berry and Blogilates I've been following for a lot longer. If you have any suggestions of blogs I may love, let me know.  So far my blogs are mainly coffee related and one bullet journal related.  ^_^


Starbucks, denied!

So, the other night when I went to my friend's house for dinner, she said we'd go to Starbucks today.  Since I can't drive my car, I was looking forward to this.  I took a walk this evening and then stopped by her house.  I needed to get a crate and some supplies for the dogs I'm sitting this weekend.  I did that and asked about Starbucks.  She had 'too much to do.' ~_~; So, I didn't get any Starbucks.  I was not a happy camper!  I got the crate and one of pups food, but they'll bring me the other dog's food with the dogs tomorrow.  I'm not sure when they'll bring them.  They said they hoped to be on the road by lunch time.  We'll see.  I think they are leaving me keys to the van, so I can at least go to Starbucks and the post office this weekend! 

My Starbucks card order that I got off ebay finally updated the shipping today and it's on it's way.  It says it will be here Saturday.  I hope so.  I can't wait to see all the cards that I don't have.  It will be nice to have a bunch of new ones. I went and looked at her other stuff for sale and she has some other cool Starbucks things!  I'll have to keep an eye on her items.  ^_^
