Rainy Sunday

It was a bit rainy earlier today.  It was overcast when I left for my walk, but it wasn't raining.  I had gotten to the half way point, turned around and headed back before it began to sprinkle a little bit.  It began raining pretty well there for a bit so I had to walk with my umbrella.  Luckily, it was near the end of my walk, and it also stopped before I got home.  I only had to use the umbrella for a bit.  I got home and had some coffee and then relaxed a bit.  I did my workouts, had lunch, and then made another cup of coffee and settled in with my Kindle.  I finished The Fireman last night and I started on Sleeping Beauties today.  

I had some clothes in my dryer that I had washed yesterday and never got around to taking out.  I took those out and put them away and then dried my bed linen.  I always wash it on Sunday.  I put up the last valence on my bed and now I have a 'canopy' bed. :P  It looks pretty cute.  I would like to get something to go over the top to make an actual 'top' to it.  Here is the bed:

Cool, yes?  I like it.  I think it looks pretty neat.  I have a bed sheet that matches the bed skirt, so I might use it as a topper.  I attempted that today, but it didn't look great.  I needed more supplies than I had to make it work.  I'm thinking of trying again in a few days.  I'm thinking I'll take down the valences, get the sheet up correctly and then put the valences back up. I think that would probably work better.  The things around the top are a string of Christmas lights that I strung around the frame some years back.  They were a pain to put up, so I didn't bother to take them down! 

I am sitting under my hair bonnet hair dryer waiting for my hair to dry.  After that, I'm going to put the linens back on my bed and get in there with the Kindle.  I want to read more of Sleeping Beauties.  So far, I haven't read a lot, but I'm hoping to change that later.  I just need to do my French lesson via Duolingo and then I'll go get my linens. ^_^


Starbucks collection

I collect Starbucks cards as I've mentioned before. I went on ebay today to see if anyone had a good set of them for sale.  I found a lot of 38 that with shipping was 9.98.  I jumped on it.  There are a LOT of them that I don't have. At least 30 of the 38 are ones new to me.  I'm very happy!  I went around the house tonight trying to locate some of my old 'extras'.  I have a stack on my desk of extra ones, but I know I have more.  I just don't know where I stashed them.  I'd like to use the extras for trades or crafts.  I just want to round them all up.  I did find a few cool brochures and things from Starbucks. I also found several different cup sleeves and a few old gift card holders.  I'll share a picture of my cards when I get them.  I will try to do a photo album and keep it updated of all my cards.  

PS  I went to Starbucks tonight and got a cascara latte. :p


Sunday suprises

So, I texted a friend to see if he wanted to do anything.  My car started acting up badly yesterday and I was afraid to drive it today.  I figured he'd say, nah, I don't want to do anything.  Instead, he said we could go to Aunt Millie's to eat.  Aunt Millie's has the best damn pizza.  It's so good!  I am glad I asked! LOL  So, I'm just waiting on him.  As soon as he comes, I'm going to go with him to Aunt Millie's and have some delicious pizza.  I might post again later.  I've already done today's workouts and finished today's French lesson. ^_^


National Coffee Day!

Yes, it's my day! :P  I have already had two delicious cups of coffee at home and then I went to Starbucks!  I decided to try the new Maple Pecan Latte.  It is GOOD.  It's not overly sweet which I like, but it's sweet enough.  I like it.  It's got some good flavor to it.  I still like my Cascara latte the best, but this is a nice seasonal drink.  I'd definitely order it again.  I wanted to get all of the fall cups to add to my Starbucks collection, but they were out of the venti ones. That was the one I wanted the most, too! :(  I got the tall and grande though.  They also had the Halloween gift cards, YAY!  I got one, I want to get a few more if I can.  I was so happy to see them. I just need to find a venti fall cup and I"ll be happy! ^__^

Recap or TL:DR Maple Pecan latte is DELIIOUS! and it's #NationalCoffeeDay :D


It IS Thursday!

So, I had to run out this evening to do an errand.  I decided to turn the radio on in my car.  I have it tuned to the Classical Station. I turned it on and heard Opera.  I turned if off and said, "Opera! It's not Thursday!"  And then it hit me.  Yeah it is. LOL!  This particular station has an opera night on Thursdays.  I guess I didn't have enough coffee today! :P

I got my errands done and came home and had dinner.  I am going to have a cup of coffee after this and hopefully get my letters written.  I feel bad having put it off so long. It makes me want to just keep putting it off, but that isn't fair to my pen pals.  I was very tempted to get Starbucks while I was out, but I was good and didn't go.  Perhaps tomorrow or sometime this weekend.  

I'm still watching Sailor Moon. I'm getting close to the end of Sailor Moon R.  I am ready for S.  Bring me Haruka and Michiru, please! Sailor Pluto was just introduced a few episodes ago.  Chibi Usa is still just Chibi Usa.  I can't remember when she becomes Chibi Moon, but I'm thinking it's probably soon.  I'm enjoying re-watching the series and being able to see the pretty art.  

I watched a bunch earlier today, but I took a break and I've been doing other stuff.  It's not possible to watch subtitled anime and do something else at the same time! I don't want to miss anything.  I think the series gets better and better starting with Sailor Moon S.  The first arc of Sailor Moon Super S is one of my favorites!  

Right now, I am watching Beach TV.  It's a channel from Myrtle Beach that you can stream on the Roku. It's fun seeing familiar places at my favorite place.  It's also giving me some ideas of new places to try on my next visit! ^_^.


Friday evening....

Wow, what a day.  I walked on the beach this morning and got splashed by some waves.  I had to come back and put my shorts out to dry. lol  Later, I went walking to 17.  I went to Bargain Beachwear to get a few postcards.  I also got a keychain.  I headed further down 17 and then turned and headed back to Ocean Boulevard.  I got part of the way back and then took my shoes off and walked on the beach back to the hotel.  I came back and relaxed on the balcony a bit.  My friend and I went to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to Tuesday Morning and I got three more rolls of the washi that I liked so much.  I also found some other goodies.  A package of Halloween stickers and some craft tiny clothespins.  After leaving there, we headed to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  That was delicious as always!

Since we were right near the Goodwill, we went there.  I got a MB shirt and a package of full page labels.  I can use them to make my own stickers at home. YAY!  There were twenty left in the box.  I'm pretty sure when you buy a small package of them, they come ten to the pack and they are over $10 a pack!  Crazy!  These were $1 Yes!  We went to the Dollar General that is next door to the Goodwill and got a few things and then headed back down the strip.  There was another Starbucks that I hadn't been to yet, so he swung by there and I went in and got myself a latte. :D  He wanted ice cream, so he stopped at Burky's.  We've eaten at Burky's before.  It's pretty good.  He got ice cream and then we headed down to the road where Market Common was.  We had seen the sign before and looked for it but didn't find it.  We found it tonight!  It was late, so most everything was closed, but at least we found it. :P  It has a lot of high end stores, it seems.

So we then headed back towards the room.  We saw a miniature golf place that looked pretty cool.  We went and one sign said they closed at 10:30, the sign on the building said 11.  The lady said they closed at 10!  It was about 9:32 by then, so we didn't get to play.  Phooey! We headed back here and I did my workouts.  I'm posting this and then I'm going to take my nightly beach walk.  I'm really tired, but I still want to at least walk a little bit. ^_^ 


It can't be Friday already!?!

If I was at home, it would still be Tuesday! LOL  Time goes faster at the beach, I swear! So, last night we went walked to the Dairy Queen to eat dinner.  I usually get the chicken basket, but I haven't had one of their burgers in forever so I got a bacon burger.  It was good, too!  We walked back to the room.  I sat on the balcony for a bit and then came in and did my workouts.  I did a few things in my room and then headed out for a late night beach walk.  I walked a bit longer than I planned, but it was nice out there.  I PoGo'd while I was walking.  I actually caught a new one but I can't remember at the moment which one.  That was cool!  It's always nice to catch new ones.

After my walk, I came back here and settled in for the night.  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I think the only thing we decided last night was to go up to North Myrtle to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  It's a favorite place to eat while we are here.  I'm looking forward to that.   Their food is delicious.  It's more of a local favorite, so it's even better than a chain or another place that may be similar.  If we get up there before the Tuesday Morning store closes, I want to get some more of the washi I bought the other day.  They had a roll of pretty washi that I got a few rolls of.  I wish I had gotten all they had, but I didn't.  There is something he wanted that he didn't pick up either, so the odds are good I'll get to go back.  Hopefully both the things we want are still there!


Good morning from Myrtle Beach!

I'm actually posting a bit later than I have been this week. I've been up awhile, but I was doing stuff on my phone and iPod touch and didn't get over to the laptop.  Yes, I've had my coffee. :p I just went out on the balcony and it's beautiful out there today.  It's really sunny and bright and it's nice and warm.  I see a lot of people on the beach and several at the pool.  

I'm ready to go eat, but my friend is still asleep. ~_~;  It's the beach! Sleep at home, dammit!  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I might make today and stay around the hotel day.  Sit on the balcony, walk on the beach, enjoy the day.  It's so nice and pretty and I don't really have anywhere else I need to go to.  Plus, I'm really low on funds and I still have to buy stuff when I get home to make it through the month.  Hopefully I'll be able to do that!  

I'll update later and let you know what I'm doing.  It's so nice today, I should be able to get some great pictures.  Here is one I took when I first went out on the balcony this morning:

One more post today....

It stormed this afternoon after I posted.  It was raining really hard and there was streak lightning.  It was great!  After the storm passed, I went for a walk on the beach.  I found some cool shells.  I came back and relaxed for awhile and then did my daily workouts.  As if that wasn't enough, I went for another walk on the beach! I played Pokemon Go as I walked and I got a lot of Pokemon. I have walked over 22,000 steps today.  I'm hoping I've tired myself out so that I can crash hard tonight.  I want to sleep!  

I am watching Forensic Files on HLN at the moment.  I'll watch it until I go to bed.  I've seen every one of the episodes that they've showed tonight.  Oh well. It's one of those shows that is so good, I don't mind watching it again.  


Windy Tuesday evening....

I'm sitting on the balcony with the Macbook. It's quite windy out here, too!  We have been gone since earlier today.  We headed out and had breakfast at Lenny's Country Kitchen.  They have a wonderful buffet.  We had the entire place to ourselves.  No, really!  One other couple came in later after we'd been there a long time.  It was yummy.  We then went to check out some thrift stores.  We went to three Goowills and my friend went to several pawn shops.  We also went by a area that has a Cookout  and a Starbucks side by side.  He went to Cookout and while he was in the drive thru line, I walked to Starbucks! :D  The baristas were really friendly and the service was great.  I had two free drinks on my card, so I used one and got a venti cascara latte. So good!

I only found one thing to buy today.  It was just a pair of shorts in one of the Goodwill stores.  There was a sign that I almost bought that said, "Cafe Au Lait" Which is coffee with milk in French. ^_^  I was giggling in the store that I could read it. Yeah, I'm a silly. :p  Anyway, I didn't get it.  We have one more Goodwill that we go to down here, but by that time, we were really tired and hungry.  We went to Red Robin for dinner and then came back here to the room.  We are now sitting on the balcony and my friend is trying out the camera he bought.  That is another reason we came back.  He wanted to play with his new 'toy'. ;P

I'm charging my phone at the moment as it got pretty low while we were out.  The Red Robin is a Pokestop, so I was hitting it all during our meal. That was fun and easy too!  I am going for a beach walk later.  I still need to do my workouts and I'll get those in a bit later.  For now, I'm just going to sit here and enjoy this nice ocean breeze and look out at the beautiful ocean.
