Sweltering Sunday

It was so hot on my walk today that I almost gave up and called for a ride!  I was sweating like crazy and I didn't think I'd make it far.  I figured I'd get to the park and sit on a bench there and cool off and see if I felt any better.  By the time I got to the park, I walked through it in the shade and that helped a lot.  I also found a five dollar bill on the ground!  That didn't hurt, either.  I decided it I would go on and see how I did.  I got to my turn around point and got a soda and a snack with the money and then headed back.  The snack and the sugar from the soda seemed to perk me up.

I got home and I was glad to have gotten my walk in.  I had to rest and cool off a long time before I could do my workouts.  I did those, my squats and my French lesson.  I washed my bed linen and my hair.  My bed linen just needs to be put  back on the bed.  I decided to bring my pen pal letters, bullet journal, and laptop into the living room and crash on the sofa.  I've written one whole letter. ^^:  I might just type up the rest.  I am still sort of feeling blah from that heat earlier.

It stormed briefly here today and they are calling for storms all week.  Hopefully they can all wait until later in the day so I can walk without any problems.  Hopefully it will cool down a bit.  That would be lovely!  

By the way, I used an app on my iPod touch called Day One.  I loved this app a lot on there. I waited for YEARS for an Android version.  Well, before they made an Android version, they released a newer version of it for iOS.  I didn't care for it as much as the original but it was still a decent app.  Well, they now have an Android version.  I exported all my entries for Journey app and put them in Day One.  I found that the Android version is the newer version that I don't like as well.  Also, they make you pay a premium price to sync your journal? No thanks!  So, I realized that all of this if available with Journey and it's much better!

So, no more Day One.  I found that Journey is available for iOS but my iPod isn't supported. It's an older one, so I guess that is why.  I love Journey. I have the Android app, the Mac desktop version, and you can also use it online!  It's an amazing journal app and I love it.  It also has a premium subscription service, but you don't need it for basic things like syncing.  The Android app is $4.99 I think?  The Mac desktop app was less than $15 if I remember right.  I didn't even have to buy the Mac desktop app as I can use it online and via a Chrome extension, but I love the app so much, I want to support the developers.  Give Journey a try.  You will not be disappointed!

Makeup post?

Well, I certainly do have to make up for last night's post.  I had sat down at the computer to post to Typepad.  I had a call from a friend that had an emergency and needed me to go with them.  After they picked me up, the emergency was over and they wanted to go get themselves some food.  The emergency was that my friend had been in a separate vehicle from her mom in Greensboro, NC and some how got back to Danville without her!  As soon as we headed out to look for her mother, she passed us! LOL!  We went and picked her up and I rode with them to get them some food.  They got me a frappe at McDonald's.  Yum.

So, I was out and couldn't get home in time to post about my day yesterday, so I did the quick post from my phone and posted the cute picture of Goldie and I from Animal Crossing Pocket Camp! ^_^  I had two walks yesterday.  The second one was a rainy one.  The first was sunny and hot!  My friend wanted to walk on the trail in Martinsville, so we went and did that.  It started raining as soon as we got out of the car!  We walked anyway. 

I am probably not going to get in two walks today.  I got in my regular one and I came home and did my workouts.  I also mowed the front yard. As of now, I'm in my room sitting with the air conditioning on and the fan! LOL!  It was in the nineties out there today and it felt like it, too!  I just want to sit in the cool air and enjoy the rest of my day.   


What a difference a few hours make!

So, this day started horribly.  I had a really bad night's sleep and I woke up all out of sorts.  I was missing my Charge 2 something awful.  According to Fingerhut, it could take up to ten days for a return to go through.  That is not including the time for it to get to them and to get back to me!  I said, this is insane.  I also wanted to buy from a dealer that Fitbit supports so if another tracker messes up, they'll fix it.  I went to Paypal and applied for credit. I never thought I'd get it, but I got it!  I was able to ordered a Charge 2 from Target and go pick it up in store today!  It wasn't ready yet when I got there, so I got some Starbucks to help ease the wait.  I am now home and I'm charging the Fitbit.

I wasn't able to get the Teal band, but I have an aftermarket band that is teal and I can always order a teal one from Fitbit.  I got the new one in plum.  Blue and purple are my favorite colors, so that works out well! :P  I am anxious to see if this one is more accurate.  I can't wait to put it on and wear it.  I thought I'd love going back to my One, but I had already gotten used to my Charge being on my arm.  So much so that I forgot to wear my watch on my walk today! LOL!  I did walk though, I did all that before I got the new Fitbit.  Wish me luck that this one is perfect.  I am so happy that I was able to get it this way.  Now, I won't be paying twice as much for it.  It makes me feel a lot better, to be sure!

Wow, this is a cheerful post, yes? :P  I might come back later tonight and do a short update post when I see how the Fitbit is doing.  I am happy now that if it isn't okay, I can take care of it via Fitbit and not another place! 


Monday Madness!

So, I didn't go for my walk at the usual time today.  I wanted to!  I  had an appointment at my doctor's office at 1:30, so I didn't have time to get in my walk.  I went to my appointment and then ran by a box to mail my letters.  After that, I came home and relaxed until time to fix lunch.  I had lunch and did a few things and then I decided to get my walk in.  I had almost made up my mind to skip everything, but I didn't! 

I got in my normal walk and came home.  I saw more dogs than I usually do on my earlier walk.  That was cool!  I came home and relaxed for a just a bit and then did my workouts for today.  I then did my French lesson.  

I worked on my bullet journal.  I got my habit tracker ready for April and I went ahead and did next week's layout so it will be ready.  I have the habit tracker on one page and the other page is going to either be a calendar, or something else.  I haven't decided yet.  Back in February, I tried to draw a calendar and it was so bad that I printed one out and covered it up! LOL!  I'm not sure if I'm ready to try another calendar. :p

I didn't sleep well last night as I usually don't when I have an appointment or anything that interferes with my regular schedule.  I'm hoping tonight will be better.  I want to play some more Pocket Camp before bed, too!  I'm enjoying the fishing event.  It's lots of fun!  I love it when I catch two at once.  

In other news, Hulu FINALLY had a new episode of The Simpsons on today. I don't know why the show has been on hiatus for so long.  Just as I thought they would, they had a dedication to Stephen Hawking at the end. <3


Printer problems?

Yes!  I sat down 42 minutes ago to write up this blog post.  At the time I was going to do that, I decided to print out a pdf that I had downloaded a few days ago.  I have been fighting with the printer this whole time!  It's finally printing, so I decided to get my post done.  Hopefully it will print the entire document!  

When I got up this morning, the street was wet and it was pretty overcast.  I was worried it would rain during my walk.  My friend said that he had heard it was sleeting in a little community not far from us!  I wasn't really happy to hear that, but I decided that I was going to try to walk anyway.  I'm glad I did! It cleared off and it was around sixty!  It was a nice walk.  I got done earlier than I thought I would and had time to relax a bit before doing my workouts.  I did those and then did my French and then relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.

Since then I've washed a load of clothes, washed a sink full of dishes, took a bath, went on an errand for a friend, and played Pocket Camp! :p  My document is printing fairly quickly.  As soon as it's done, I'm going to get it and get on my bed and read it and then play more Pocket Camp! ^_^


Friday again...

Yes, it's Friday again.  I went for my walk today.  It was warm again and pretty nice.  The only bad thing was the wind.  It was blowing pretty fiercely again!  I got home and then had quite a while to relax before my workouts.  I did those, did my French, and then got ready to fix some lunch.  I did so and then pondered if I wanted to go to Starbucks.  I did want to go, but I didn't feel like going either!  I ended up not going.

Later, I did run to the post office.  I had two letters and considered going to Starbucks while I was out, but I didn't.  If they would just bring back the cascara syrup. I miss it so much. It was my favorite thing at Starbucks ever. ;_;  I still can't believe they discontinued it... again!

So, no Starbucks for me today from Starbucks, but I did have several cups of Pike Place roast at home.  I don't think I mentioned that one night last week, I wanted to check out a local convenience store to see what coffees they offered.  I went in and they had Cinnabon coffee.  They had little cups for samples so I tried it. I had tried something similar one year when we were leaving the beach.  This tasted like that did, so I got a 20oz cup and filled it up.  I looked EVERYWHERE for a lid and there were none!  I finally just had to put a soft drink cup lid over it until I could check out.  The lady said the lids were over next to the coffee, but they were not! I got it home, somehow, and I had some Starbucks venti/grande lids.  That fit so I put it on and enjoyed my coffee.  The coffee was pretty tasty, but it was so awkward trying to carry it and not spill it!  Sheesh!

Since I know they have other varieties, I'll go and try those on another occasion and I'll be sure to carry a lid with me just in case. :p  OH!  LOL Speaking of coffee, my friend and I went to Martinsville a few weeks ago. I mentioned this in a previous blog post.  I mentioned that after we ate, I got us both McDonald's macchiatos.  Well, I also told you that they were sort of bleh.  While we were driving home, she mentioned that they needed some more milk or something.  

I piped up and said, "I have creamer and honey in my purse!"  She cracked up.  I told her I loved coffee and always wanted to be prepared! LOL!  I have the honey packets in an Altoids tin and the creamers, they are powdered ones, in a little random mint tin.  I don't really use sweetener in my coffee anymore, but they are there if I need them!  I even have a little straw in there as a stirrer!  Yes, I love my coffee. :p  If I had the right container, I'd carry some of the little creamer cups! LOL!

Anyway!  Now that I've proven I'm a total nut job, I'll end this post for now.  I want to play some Pocket Camp and read more on my coffee book.  Mmmm, coffee!


Cold today.

It was pretty cold today on my walk.  Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 60's!  Two days ago, it snowed.  I think the weather is confused. :p  Who knows what two days from now might be like. 

I finished all the episodes of Who The Bleep Did I Marry? on Hulu..  Now to find something else.  At the moment, I am watching an episode of The FBI Files.  I have probably seen all of these, but this one isn't familiar yet.  I'm sure it will be.  I am almost positive I've seen all the episodes.  

I'm currently reading a book called I Know Coffee: Harvesting, Blending, Roasting, Brewing, Grinding & Tasting Coffee. It's pretty good so far.  After I finish it, I'll probably read another true crime book.  Not sure yet.  

In Pocket Camp, there is currently a campaign going that is a Mario crossover.  I've gotten all the items in the first set, and I'm looking forward to the next set.  I also see that the fishing event is supposed to start tomorrow.  They are doing a lot of events right together.  It's pretty cool.  

Well, this post sucks. LOL  I am totally just typing random stuff to share.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll have more lucid things to share!

Before I go, Happy PI day!


Wednesday is Starbucks time.

Well, it was double star day today so, of course, I went to Starbucks. I'm all about those extra stars! :p  I went to the drive thru since I was over there later than usual.  I looked in as I drove by the front and there were plenty of seats. ~_~; Figures!  If I had gone to stay, I wouldn't have found a seat.  Oh well, I got my latte and it was pretty good.  I tried the blonde caramel latte.  It was pretty good, but nothing is as good as my cascara latte. :(  I miss that stuff.  Starbucks, if you are listening, BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!  

In other news, I walked today.  It was a bit overcast when I started, but the sun came out.  It's a good thing too.  I forgot my umbrella!  It rained during yesterday's walk and I went out with a friend yesterday evening, so I had my umbrella drying.  I forgot to put it in my backpack.  I was so happy when it didn't rain! :p

I did my workouts yesterday and today, I have been on schedule for everything.  A few days ago, I ordered the matching wallet to my new purse.  I can't wait to get it.  I've never had a  purse with a matching wallet.  I'll be so fancy. lol  I also ordered a Japanese Starbucks card yesterday on ebay.  It's a Sakara card and it's gorgeous!  I can't wait to get it.  Something cool to add to my collection. ^_^  I've always wanted some Sakura related from Starbucks so this was a no brainer.  I, of course, will share pictures when I get it.

Sorry about that post yesterday.  I was tired, frustrated, and just plain grumpy! It was just not a good idea to post to my blog when I was in that mood.  The rain yesterday was just depressing.  My friend wanted to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, so we did.  After I got home, I called another friend and she asked if I'd ride with her somewhere.  I did.  Her mom was in a car wreck yesterday.  Her truck is totaled.  They had to cut her out of it!  She is walking around today!  Amazing.  The woman is almost 70!  

I've been playing Pocket Camp.  I need TWO more of the navy ladybugs to get the Spring background.  Since I have until Saturday, I should be able to get it.  I just got the flower swing today.  There is one more thing to earn after the background, but if I get that, I'll be happy!  They also introduced new animals today! :)  The game is so fun.  Goldie is and always will be my favorite!


Monday mumbles...

Yeah, I didn't have an idea for a good title today! :p  I got in my walk today and came home and relaxed a bit.  I had some time between walking and doing my workouts.  I did those and it was hard!  My poor butt! It was booty day on the workout calendar! lol  

After I did those, I did my French and relaxed a bit more before fixing lunch.  I hadn't had a good tub soak in a while, so I did that after eating.  I am now typing this up and trying to decide what I want to do now.  I'm not sure if I want to read, play Pocket Camp, take a nap, or write letters!  Knowing me, I'll end up doing, nothing at all. :P  It's been one of those days.


I'm one tired puppy!

So, I got in my walk and came home and relaxed for a bit before doing my workouts.  I was almost done with them when a friend called and wanted me to go somewhere with her.  I wanted to finish my workouts, so I said no.  I got my workout done and then my French and called her back.  She still wanted to go, so I decided to go too.  We went to Martinsville, Virginia which is not very far away for her to go to Belk and look at purses.  She didn't get the one she went for, but she got two others!  I on the other hand didn't go to look at purses and ended up with one.  I absolutely LOVE it.  It's a Lily Bloom.  I've never had one or even seen one before.  They are made from recycled plastic bottles and they have adorable designs.  Mine has cupcakes and coffee! :D  It's brown with colorful cupcakes and coffee cups on it.  The inside is bright green and it's gorgeous.  I'll share a few pictures:

Did I mention that I got it on sale?  Two discounts. Whee! So, after we finally got out of Belk, it took her forever to decide!  We went to Jerry's pizza.  It's a place in Martinsville that I've been to once before a long time ago.  They have remodeled since I went and it's pretty nice.  We shared a pizza and then went by McDonald's for caramel macchiatos.  We were in the drive thru for twenty minutes AFTER we ordered!  We finally got our coffees and headed home.  They were not very good. :(  I was disappointed!

We got back to town and I went to her house for a bit to see Cocoa, her mini Doxie whom I love!  Her son wanted something from Burger King so we rode down there.  While we were out, I got her to run me by Starbucks. LOL I had to get some good coffee to cancel out the bad coffee. :p  I got a tall blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious!  I came home and washed my hair. I'm drying it now and then I'll put my bed linen back on the bed.  I need to play some Pocket Camp as I haven't had a chance since this morning.
