Yes, it's Monday again. I did my usual today. I did my workouts, watched Sailor Moon, and went to the post office. I actually had two letters from pen pals. Yay! I might just have to go to Starbucks on Wednesday night and write letters. We'll see. Right now I'm going to watch more Sailor Moon S and then do some work in my bujo!
I made it to Sailor Moon S today. I've only watched the first two episodes so far. I am going to watch more after I type this up. I found out that the drink I got from Starbucks was actually a cinnamon almond milk macchiato. I contacted Starbucks and they told me. It wasn't bad, but I prefer my Cascara latte! Next time I'll be sure to check it before I get home. I've never had an issue with the wrong drink before... wait.. once. I got a peppermint white mocha a long time ago and they gave me a peppermint mocha instead. That was fixed asap! My favorite barista was still there then. I miss her! She was so sweet.
So, if you like cinammon, give that drink a try. It had a nice fall feel to it. I want to try the new Maple Pecan latte. I love maple and I love pecans. It sounds so good. I just don't want to become addicted to it and only be able to get it seasonally like the PSL peeps! Maybe I can catch them on a night when they have samples.
This blog post brought to you by the letter S!
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! ^_^.
So, last night as I was winding down for bed, I started hearing some strange noises. They were coming from the window where my air conditioner is. I thought maybe an animal was on the ledge outside or something. I investigate and the sounds are coming from inside the air conditioner. It's an old one, so it could just be wearing out. I had to take it out of my window and put my back up one in after 1 am. ~_~; Luckily I was able to do it pretty quickly and then get relaxed again so I could go to bed. I re-adjusted everything today to make it fit better. I just wanted to get it in last night. It was totally dark outside as the streetlight near my house is always out.
I don't usually use this particular air conditioner because it likes to leak inside. So far it's done okay. It's actually colder than my other one. it must have really been dying, because it used to be really cold. I guess I can make it through the rest of the season with this one. I am going to try to rig up some kind of pan to put under in in case it decides to start leaking. It also has a remote control, but I haven't used this air conditioner in so long, I have no clue where the remote is. I have one place I'm going to check after posting this. If it's not there, I'm really at a loss. It is probably in one of the boxes I have in my storage room. AHHHH!
No, not really, but I think I set a record for myself today! :P I had six cups of coffee, and one of those was Starbucks! I had no plans to go to Starbucks today. I had planned to stay in and relax while doing my regular Sunday chores. I was in the middle of an episode of Sailor Moon when my phone rang. It was my friend that I'm always trying to get to go to Starbucks with me. She wanted to go to Starbucks! LOL! I couldn't say no when I ask her all the time, now could I? :P We went and I got a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie. :p It was good.
I did my workouts today, washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed, washed my hair, washed another load of clothes. Those I need to check on and see if they are ready for the dryer. I also ran out to the post office. I only got one letter. Phooey! I plan to write my letters tomorrow and get them all caught up. I'll try to mail them tomorrow too, if possible. I am so behind on everything! Sheesh!
OH! I watched all four of the new Adventure Time episodes on PS VUE. I have Adventure Time as one of my favorite shows so it saved all four of the new episodes. They were all good, but they just left me wanting more. They need to put out episodes in a timely manner. I know there isn't a lot of the show left, but I want to see what I can.
So, today has been a regular day. I got up and did my usual morning things. Coffee was involved. :p After breakfast, I started watching more Sailor Moon. I'm now more than half way through season 1. I just finished episode 26. Makoto has arrived and Minako isn't too far behind! I've been enjoying it. I even mowed some on the lawn and did my workouts. I watched an episode of Cold Case Files on Youtube too. I didn't go anywhere today. I decided after going out yesterday, I would just spend the day here today. Plus, I had plenty to watch. I'm so ready to get to season 2. Everything really starts rolling then. I just hope Hulu keeps it on until I can get through all 200 episodes! I still have all my fansubs, but like I said, the quality on some of them is horrible. Plus it's VHS! :P
I am going to do my French lesson on Duolingo, and then I think I'll settle in and relax a bit before bedtime. I think I'll save watching more episodes until tomorrow. I really need to write pen pal letters. I planned to do that tonight, but I got so wrapped up in Sailor Moon, I sort of let it slip. Oops! Well, I'll try to get them written tomorrow and then get them mailed. I need to check my box for new ones. I sent myself a post card while at the beach and I sent it to my po box and not my home address, so I should have at least that waiting for me. ^_^
So, I rode with a friend of mine to Greensboro today for her doctor's appointment. Her son went too. He has been watching Sailor Moon and it made me want to re-watch it. I saw that it was on Hulu, so I have started over from the beginning. The quality is so good. I'm an old time fan from the fan sub days. The quality of some of those tapes was SO BAD. This is such a treat being able to watch it like this! I am up to the episode before Ami-chan shows up. I'm waiting on Rei because she is and always has been my favorite. I'm enjoying watching it. I had to figure out how to make the subtitles show on Hulu, but I did and now I'm good!
As for Starbucks, my friend who had to go to Greensboro asked me yesterday if I'd go. I said yes, if I got to go to a Starbucks. LOL I went to one I've been to before but it's been a long time. I will be able to add it to my tracker. They also had stickers! The barista give me eight of them. :D These are a lot smaller than the one I got at the beach and they are clear around the Siren. I put four on my Macbook. :P I'll use the others for bullet journalling. Speaking of my bujo, I didn't get around to making my beach trip page last night. I think I'm going to wait until I get some ink for my printer so I can put some of the pictures I took on my trip in there. I think that would be cool.
While in Greensboro, we went to P.F. Chang's for lunch. I had an email that had, 'buy one entree, get one free' so we did that. I was broke, so that was the only way I could have eaten. Well, she was going to get my lunch for going with her, but I told her about the deal I had to save her some money. ^_^ I told her since I saved her money on lunch she should have bought my Starbucks! LOL!
It was a full day. I came home and watched some Night Court and then I looked for Sailor Moon and found it on Hulu. They have all 200 episodes. I just hope they don't take them off before I can re-watch the entire show. It's been a lot of years since I've seen it all. It's still good, but there are some things that annoy me. They translate Mamo saying "bun head" instead of "dumpling head". Dumpling head just sounds better! LOL Other than that, it's been great. I know the translations are going to be different as the ones I watched were all fan done. The quality of the episodes makes up for it. After I finish the original Sailor Moon, I'll watch Crystal!
BTW, here is a picture of my Macbook with all it's goodies!
So, I am actually posting today! I have been on track today with everything, so I thought I'd post to my blog early. I have done my workouts, too! I was thinking of going to Starbucks tonight, but I don't think I'm going to. Maybe tomorrow night. I want to get my four pen pal letters written. I need to go out and pick up a prescription before the pharmacy closes at 8 tonight. I might do that or wait until tomorrow. I'm not sure. I was hoping it would be ready when I was out yesterday, but I didn't get the text that it was available until after I had gotten home. I had to run a few errands yesterday and was hoping to get it while out.
I went to carry my recyclables to the recycle center yesterday. I then went to Food Lion to get some of the One Touch latte stuff. It was on sale and they were out of the caramel. They had plenty of the mocha and the vanilla. I decided to run to another Food Lion that isn't too far away from my main one. They had two cans left of the caramel, so I bought them both! LOL!
I'm trying to decide how to share more of my beach trip pictures. I am not sure if I want to make an album like I did for the Spring trip, so go to a photo sharing site. I wish that Flickr was more polished. I'd use that. The sites that I really like are pay sites and I can't afford that! I'll keep looking into it and see what I can find. If you have any suggestions of great photo sharing sites where I can post albums, that would be great!
I got back to my regular routine today and it was not fun! LOL I miss being at the beach. It was hard to get out of bed today. My bed is so comfortable and I actually slept for once! I still need several more good nights of sleep to make up for all I've missed for so long!
I went to the post office today to check my box. It was stuffed! I only had four pen pal letters. The rest was other stuff. I was surprised that I didn't get more letters. Oh well, four is good! I was thinking of running by Starbucks while I was out, but I decided to just come home. I will go later this week.
I did my workouts late. I still need to catch up on yesterday's and I will. I am glad I got today's done. I also got the front lawn mowed. It was really needed, too! I need to do the back, but I'll do it another day. I am hoping to only have to do it one more time this season. That would be nice. I don't want to have to mow again until next year! :p
I am going to do a picture post soon, I am getting back on track today, so tomorrow I should be able to get some pictures up. I need to relax for a little while and then I'm going to get a few things done and then go to bed.
So, we finally got out of the room around noon. We went to Checker's to eat lunch. I got the Baconzilla. It was GOOD. For both of us to eat, it was less than twenty and it was delcious. We left there and hit a few pawn stores that my friend wanted to go to. We tried to go to the Starbucks on 501, but they were closed because of the impending hurricane. We went to another pawn shop and then he ran me by Tanger so I could go to the Starbucks there. I was able to get my cascara latte and a sticker! YAY! :D They actually had some. She only gave me one, though. Phooey! LOL OH well, it's going on my laptop asap! :D
We left there and went to the mini golf we tried to go to last night. They had 36 holes for $12 a person so we did that. That was fun. I took pictures there, but my phone is charging. I'll share some pictures later. I'll probably do a big picture post after I get home. It may be Monday though, because I have a lot to do when I get home tomorrow. Grocery shopping, laundry, and mowing the lawn. Unless my friend did it for me while I was gone which I doubt greatly!
Tonight, I'm going to stick around the room. I'll pack up everything tonight so I'm ready to go tomorrow. I'll take at least one more beach walk. Actually, I think I'll take one now and then one after dark. I'll post again later. ^_^ If my phone is charged enough, I'm going walking. I need beach therapy, NOW!
