So busy!~

It has been an incredibly busy day for me.  I've been gone almost all day!  I went for my walk and it was COLD.  Well, the temperature was around forty, but when the wind blew it was freezing!  I got my walk in and came home and had a cup of coffee and a quick snack and then went to Family Dollar.  I got my essentials for the month and then headed to the grocery store.  I spend WAY too much in there and I forgot a couple of items.  I brought those home and put them away.  That was a job in itself!  I then went by my friend's house to see something he got in the mail.  He and I went to eat and then hit Goodwill.  I found a brand new hoodie that has Myrtle Beach on it. ^___^  It is the same brand as the hoodies I buy at the beachwear stores.  I swear it looks like it's never been worn. I got it for $5!  My friend found a fleece pullover half zip hoodie with Myrtle Beach on it and he got that for me.  I got two cool MB shirts and I didn't even leave town. :P  I also found a cute set of Halloween stampers for .99.  They were originally a $3 item at the Target dollar spot.   I love stamps and I love halloween!

I dropped him off and then came home.  My other friend had wanted to do something earlier, so I called her to see if she wanted to go to Starbucks.  She drove us to Target where I spent too much money!  I got a better bag for my bujo.  This one is perfect.  It's actually a make up bag like the one I bought on Amazon, but this one is a little bigger, with better handles, and it's just great.  I love it.  I can use the one I got on Amazon for something else.  I'll do a picture of the bag perhaps tomorrow.  I also got two cute rolls of washi in the dollar spot, a set of adorbs sticky notes, also from the dollar spot!  I got a little draw string bag.... yes, dollar spot. :P  I also got a four pack of the rolling wite out.  The two pack is 2.99 and they had the four pack on sale for 4.99 so I grabbed it.  I use it a lot!  I correct things in my checkbook and I also use it for envelopes when I make a mistake on the address.  It's also good for fixing goof in the bullet journal!  I got all that and I found a compact of pressed powder that didn't cost ten dollars!  I only use powder every now and then because my face gets really red.  I haven't used make up in years!  

After we left Target, we went by Starbucks.  I ran in and got a Venti cascara latte and grabbed two of the Blonde sleeves to add to my collection.  I came home and did my workouts.  I still have a lot to do before bed and it's almost 11.  Yikes!  I need a few more hours to add to this day!  Wow, I didn't plan to write this much today.  Good for me! ^__^


Well then.

I guess I should do a real post today since I didn't yesterday.  I got in my walk today and it was a little warmer than yesterday, but not a lot.  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  It was ab day.  It was insane, but I did it!  I was happy when I was done! LOL!  

I was surprised when my friend wanted to go out and eat.  Usually Wednesday is not the day for that.  We did go, though, and then I came back here and did some things.  Later, I rode with him to the dollar store and he gave me some money to pick up a few things I needed.  I was going to print the February calendar for my workouts, but it isn't out yet.  Hopefully she'll release that soon.  If not, I can always use the app.  I have her app and it has each day's workouts listed.  

So far I'm enjoying the book on the Borden murders.  It's quite good.  I do want to go back to that zombie series I was reading.  I looked on Amazon and there are a lot of books in the series and it looks like most of them are available to borrow via Kindle Unlimited.  I'm going to have to give it a try!  I can read that whole series in a month's time and that is the length of the trial.  I'll know by the end of the month if it's worth it to me and if there are enough of the books I want to read.  I'll do a review of it after  I've given it a go!

 


Phooey!

So, I finished book two of the zombie series today and was hoping to get the next one.  Sadly it isn't available for Prime users, but it is under the Kindle unlimited. I am seriously thinking of giving the Kindle unlimited a trial.  I have not been thrilled with Prime.  The shipping has been bad and there are not a lot of books to choose from.  

I walked today even though it was overcast and had rained.  It rained a bit during my walk, but it wasn't too bad.  I only had to use the umbrella for a bit.  I got home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then I read the rest of the book.  It was good and had a cliff hanger ending, so I really want to read the rest of the series!  I went to the library to see if they had it as a ebook to borrow, but alas, no.  I did find two books that looked interesting and I've borrowed those.  One is about the Borden murders.  As in Lizzie Borden's father and stepmother.  I think that will be a good read. I am going to check in with Pocket Camp and then start on my new book.  I think the weather is supposed to be clear tomorrow or at least no rain.  Yay!  It makes walking so much easier.  


Starbucks time denied!

So, I decided to load up my messenger bag and go to Starbucks this afternoon.  I wanted to work on pen pal letters and spend the afternoon relaxing in Starbucks.  I got there and they were completely full.  There was no where for me to sit! :(  I got my cascara latte and a multi grain bagel and left.  I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to staying quite a while.  I came home and crashed on my sofa and I have been here ever since.  

I finished the zombie book I was reading and found the second one in the series was a free to borrow on on Amazon Prime.  I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I haven't started it yet.  I got in my walk today.  It was overcast and a bit drizzly at times.  It didn't really rain though so that was okay.  I did get damp and I had to use my umbrella a bit, but it wasn't too bad.  I came home and relaxed a bit.  I planned to do m workouts at the usual time but then didn't.  I will do those later. 

I packed up and headed to Starbucks, but like I said, there was no where for me to sit.  I miss the old location.  There was more seating there.  I like the new locations drive thru and how nice it is, but it's just not big enough.  They really need more seating.  

I created my habit tracker in bujo for February.  I am doing color themes for the months this year.  January's theme was blue, February's is going to be pink.  I have my habit tracker done and I plan to put something on the other page, I just am not sure what.  Probably a February calendar.  

I need to be thinking about what I'm going to fix for dinner.  So far, I have no idea what I want!  I'll eat dinner and then do my workouts.  I'll only have to put my bed linen back on my bed and I'll have everything I needed to do done for today.  I took a bath earlier and washed my hair, so that is done.  I also already did my French lesson.  I just need to finish this post and then put the linens back on the bed.  Oh, and do my workouts!  Those won't be bad as it's arm day.  Those are usually not too bad!


New Starbucks cards

I received the three Starbucks cards I ordered on ebay today!  These are so cool! One is from Mexico, one is from France, and one is made of recycled coffee bean bags.  I love them all!  I took a picture to share:

The order in the picture is: Mexico, recycled, France.  I love them all!  I didn't have any of these designs so that made it even better.  I love collecting these.  I now have three country cards.  I want more! ^___^


Here we go again! :P

I created a new banner today that I really like  It has Starbucks on it, so how could I not like it!? :p  I also changed the colors and the background.  The banner will stay, I'm not sure about the colors at background just yet.  We'll see.  

As for today, I got in my walk, I came home and relaxed a little bit and then did my workouts.  After those, I had lunch.  Since then I've been pretty lazy.  I took a bath, I read, I watched TV... well, shows on the Roku.  I've already done my French lesson, so after I post this, I'm probably just going to get in my bed with the Kindle. I finished the true crime book last night and started a zombie book.  So far, so good.  I also want to play some more Pocket Camp.  It's just so cute!

I also drank a lot of coffee today! :p


Deadly Women

So, the current true crime book I'm reading is about a woman that killed her boyfriend.  In the book, the author, mentions that she was featured on an episode of Deadly Women.  I love that show!  I checked on Hulu and they had the episode with her in it.  It was pretty interesting.  I'm close to being through with the book.  The story was pretty close to what I've read.  They only left out a few unimportant details.  I thought I had seen every episode of Deadly Women up until I got rid of cable, but I don't remember this one at all.  Weird.  I don't know if I just missed any episode or what.  I'll have to check and see if there are more episodes on Hulu that I haven't seen.  That would be great!

I felt pretty lousy when I got up today and I came really close to just staying home and skipping my walk.  I got myself up and out there though.  I'm glad I did.  I came home and did my workouts.  It was ab day. Ouch!  I did those too.  I didn't really do much after that.  I took a bath, I washed a load of clothes, and I played Pocket Camp.  I need to go get those clothes out of the dryer as I'm sure they are done.  I just need to get motivated to get up.  Right now, I'm just sitting here yawning myself silly.  I had a bad night's sleep last night and it's catching up to me!


Well then.....

I changed things around AGAIN on the blog.  I have a new background and have changed things around to match.  I think I like it?  I got rid of the banner.  I didn't really like it.  I might create a better one in the future.  For now, I guess I'll leave the layout as it is.  Of course, after I post this, I'm going to look through my background archive and see if I like anything better. LOL

I walked today and got in my workouts.  I got some money on my paypal account, so I went to Ebay.  I found a seller that had a lot of cool Starbucks cards so I bought three from him.  They were all $2 each with free shipping.  One is one from Mexico. Yay! I have a Canada card, but none from any other countries yet.  I also got one from France. ^__^  The last one is a cool one made from recycled coffee bags. I am happy with all three and can't wait to get them.  Of course I'll do a post on them when they get here. I will now have a Canada card, a France card, and a Mexico card.  ^________^
