New look, same blog!

I just re-did the look of the blog again.  I made a new banner and I changed the colors to a nice soft purple shade.  I think I love it.  What do you think?  I had changed it a little recently but I didn't like what I had done so I changed it to this.  I like it.

Today's walk was insane!  I looked at my weather app and it said it was in the 70's.  I didn't think it would be that bad on my walk. I was wrong! lol It was so hot. I was dripping sweat.  It was gross.  I made it though and got home and relaxed for awhile before I did my workouts.  I did those, did my French, and then had lunch.  I then went and checked the mail.

I have been looking for a key fob to go on my Fossil purse since I got it.  All the ones I could find were the wrong color.  I found one on a purse that I was able to get shipping for less than $20!  It's green like my bag and has the fob.  I now have an extra bag and I moved the key fob to my favorite bag.  This new bag is a lot smaller and it's very cute.  I figured if I was going to spend the money to get the key fob, I might as well get an extra purse, too! :p

Here is a picture of the purse with the key fob on it:

It's a little darker than my purse, but it's close enough to suit me! ^_^


Well phooey!

I moved my car today and went for my walk.  My friend said he'd come today and work on the brakes.  I got home from my walk and my car was still in the same spot.  I went in and cooled down and then did my workouts.  I had lunch and still nothing.  I waited quite awhile after that and then texted him.  He wasn't coming. ~_~; I moved the car back to it's usual spot.  I really wanted to get that done so I could go out tomorrow.  I really need to go to the recycle center.  I have way too much stuff to walk to the recycle center.  It would take a lot of trips.  Phooey!  Hopefully it will get fixed one day.  I'm not holding my breath.

I mailed 11 letters on today's walk. I didn't write the last one I have. I'll do it tomorrow.  Actually.  I was thinking that if my car had been 'fixed', I would take it and the MBP to Starbucks.  Sadly none of that happened.  It will probably be next weekend before he says anything about coming again and then he might bail on me like he did today.  I really want to be able to get in my car and go places.  Sheesh!


Whoo!

I have written eleven letters and I only have one more to go!  I'll be mailing them all off tomorrow on my walk.  I can't believe I got so far behind.  I'm caught up now and I'm very happy!  I have two new pen pals in this batch.  Yay!  Oh boy, a moth just attacked me while I was typing. Help! It's still attacking meeeeeeeee LOL Seriously, this moth is nuts. :p

Anyway!  I am worn out from walking, working out, and writing letters!  I'll type up a good post tomorrow.  I did take a picture on my walk today to share:

Well phooey....

It's been a really long day.  I planned to get a lot more done than I have today.  Hopefully I can get things done tomorrow.  I did walk and do my workouts.  I just haven't wanted to do much else.  I've been so tired.  Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight and get a lot done tomorrow.

 I started typing some pen pal letters tonight, but I have a lot more to do.  I'm just going to finish all of those tomorrow.  I so wish I could go to Starbucks, get a latte, and write my letters!

I transfered a folder from the Macbook over to the MBP today.  It was over 70 GB!  When it first started moving over it said it would take 6 days. LOL!  Luckily it didn't take but a few hours.  I wanted to make sure that got done before starting on my letters.  That is one reason I didn't get much done.  That folder will be good to have so I am not having to open the Macbook.  I had to go on it last night for a file and I remembered why I was so happy with my MBP.  It is so slow. Poor old Macbook!  

I got another snap on case today so I would have some variety.  It's blue like the other but it's a different color blue and it's a made a little differently.  Here it is on the MBP.  It was sitting on my yoga mat after I did today's workouts.

I really love Softlips.

So, I found Softlips in the store I was working in way back in the 90's when they first came out.  I have used them every since.  My favorite flavor ever was the Coconut creme that was a limited time one.  My second favorite was the Mint.  I was down to my last package of those and was upset because I couldn't find them listed on their website anymore.  Anyone that had some was marking them way up.  I did a Google search and found that their parent company Mentholatum actually had them in the two pack on their website!  I ordered 8 packs of two. LOL!  They came today and I'm pretty happy!  I tend to keep a tube all over.  I have one on my desk, one on my nightstand, one in my messenger bag, one in my waist bag I walk with, one in my bujo bag, and several in my purse. I will always have some with me this way.  Now if they would just bring back the coconut creme I think I'd be the happiest girl around. I was very happy to see the Mint on the site because you can buy Softlips in a lot of stores, but it's usually just the vanilla flavor that everyone has. It's okay, but I prefer the mint.  The limited edition Birthday cake is good too!  Many, many years ago, this was the late nineties they had one that was lemon sorbet.  I wish they'd bring that back!

I am probably the only person that has so many tubes of Softlips! LOL I even have other flavors, pecan brownie, peach mango, watermelon, raspberry, wildberry, cherry, etc!  I still have two old tubes of the lemon sorbet that are mostly used.  Yes, I'm a total Softlips fan girl! :p . 


Day two with the MBP

So it's my second day with my 'new' MBP.  I'm still loving it.  It's so much faster than my Macbook.  Programs that ran way too slow work fine on this! I'm so happy with it.  I realized that it only had Photos and not iPhoto.  I really prefer iPhoto even though it's older and not supported anymore.  Luckily, when I upgraded my Macbook to a newer version of Mac recently, I was able to get the latest version of iPhoto.  Since it was in my 'purchased' apps in the Appstore, I was able to get it. Yay!

Another thing that happened last night.  You remember I mentioned that I was installing Photoshop Elements when I was posting.  Well, I kept getting error messages.  It said it wasn't compatible with my version of Mac and blah blah blah.  I Googled it and found people saying I'd have to get the newest version of PSE. I didn't want to spend money since I had the Power PC  version of PSE and I bought PSE 9 when I got my first intel Mac.  I decided to contact Adobe and see what could be done.  They were able to get it installed and running fine!  Great support from Adobe!  I am comfortable with PSE 9 and I didn't want to change.  I also didn't have $79 to upgrade to the latest version!

Today, I got up and went for my walk.  I came home and cooled down and then did my workouts and my French.  I had lunch and then I've pretty much been on the MBP since. LOL . It's so cool and fast.  I'm so happy with it.  Now, if I could just get the brakes on my car fixed, I could go to Starbucks with it or just go to Starbucks and bring some goodies home!  I always felt 'different' when I went to Starbucks with my white Macbook. Now I'll have a MBP like everyone else. LOL!  Yeah, I'm a weirdo!  Of course my Macbook did have a lot of cool decals and stickers on it.  

 


Hello from the MacBook Pro!

Yes, it finally came and I love it to pieces.  I filmed myself opening the box just in case there was any issues or problmes.  There were none!  I got it turned on and it was already 'setup' with a admin user.  I wanted my own stuff, so I looked at how to do that.  Just go into the command line in the startup.  Since I've used Linux, command line is not a problem!  I got it set up for me and and it's so cool!  I have all the programs on it that I wanted to move over.  The only thing left is PhotoShop Elements and it's installing now.  I'm very happy with this MBP!  It's super fast and all the things that were so slow on my Macbook are not on here.  It's so nice!

So, I did walk today.  The laptop hadn't gotten here before I left, so I decided I should go ahead and walk.  I knew if I didn't walk and it didn't come during the time I could have walked, I would have been so upset!  I walked and was cooling down with a snack on my bed and listening for the FedEx man! lol I didn't hear him, but I got a notification on my phone from an app called Slice that said it had been delivered! I jumped up from the bed and ran to the porch. lol . It was sitting there waiting for me.  I finished my snack and then unboxed it.  Hearing that Mac startup sound was music to my ears.  It's so nice.  I'm in love.

My friend knew it was coming today, but he wanted to go eat.  He said if I could pull myself away from it long enough to eat we'd go. LOL . I told him I could and I did!  I also got him to run me by Food Lion.  Today was the last day of the sale, and I wanted to get some more of my favorite frozen dinners.  They had them for $2.50 and if you buy 5, they take $1 off each.  So I got 10 for fifteen dollars. SCORE!!!!!!  They are so good, they remind me of a restaurant quality pasta dish. 

So, he dropped me home and I came right back to the MBP and started installing PSE.  I am going to write letters tonight or tomorrow.  I finally got some stamps today. YAY!  I have so many letters.  I never meant to get this far behind.  Shame on me!


Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!
