Yes! I got my word count tracker done in my bullet journal. I did the right page last night before bed and I did the left page today. On the left page, I put a graphic from NaNo and I put my winner certificated from the last two years. ^_^ . The word tracker on the right is just like the one I used last year. I really like it and find it useful. Here is my tracker:
I changed my background and colors again. It's now Halloween themed. :p . Since I love Halloween, it's going to stay for a while. At least until November 1st. (^_^) Of course, the way I am, I'll look at it tomorrow and hate it and change it. lol
I walked today and it was hot. It's October, dammit! I want some cooler weather. It would be nice to NEED a hoodie. It was in the 80's today and it eertainly felt like it! I was so hot when I got back home. I want some cooler weather. It's not asking for too much! Ahhh!
I had to run an errand this afternoon that I didn't get to run yesterday. I got that done and meant to go by the post office and forgot. I did everything else I needed to do while out though. I still need to sit down and write letters. I did more Nano prep last night. I will be making a Nano tracker in my bujo so that will be ready for November 1! Now, if I could just get my Nano shirt.
I have a killer headache, so this post might not make much sense at all. If that is the case, sorry. I'll do better tomorrow. I hope! I have my bed linen in the dryer. I just need to get it out and put it back on my bed. I also have another load of laundry in the wash. I need to get the bed linen out so I can dry that load. I'll do that after I post this. I have already done my French lesson for today and I washed my hair earlier. I still need a haircut so badly. I am probably not going to be able to get one this month. My funds are way too low. I didn't even get to refill money on my Starbucks cards! OH NO!!!!!!!! I did claim a small card as a reward from one of my places I get gift cards from. Sadly, it wasn't a virtual one, I will actually have to wait for it to ship. Oh well, at least I'll have something. I spent my last free drink a few days back so I need to reload my card. :p
Yeah, I looked at it again today and I hated it. Thus, I changed it again. I think I like this background. It's slightly orange so it's a bit fall-ish. I might or might not keep it. LOL! In other news, I got a Lemone journal in the mail today. Now I'm torn. I love my Leuchtturm1917 that I bought, but this Lemome is so smooth. The pages that is. I finally opened my Leuchtturm tonight and the inside is different. They changed the pages at the front that you can mark as a table of contents. The Lemome is more like the old LT than the LT is! It's weird. Also, my LT has a smell to it. The Lemome has a smell too, but it's a GOOD smell. I will be trying to decide which one I want to use. I'm leaning towards the Lemome. I'll still use the LT, of course, but I may not make it my next bullet journal. Here are some pictures:
It came in the nice box which would make it good for gift giving. It also came with the pen that you see in the loop. Also included were stickers. Very nice indeed!
My walk today was HOT. Fall is here and it was close to 90°. I was roasting! lol I got my walk in though. I came home and cooled off. It was nice to sit in front of the air conditioning and the fan! I didn't do much else today except watch a bunch of episodes of Deadly Women on Hulu! lol . I also watched one of my favorite movies that I haven't seen in years. Girls Just Want To Have Fun. So good! I watched it on Hulu too!
It rained here tonight. I was sitting here and kept hearing something weird. I realized it was rain! lol . I hope it stops before tomorrow. I don't want to walk in the rain. I did a repair job on the door that goes under my house. It's where I keep the lawn mower. I broke it the other day and I fixed it today. I had it situated so that it looked like it was still secure. Luckily, it stayed that way until I could get it fixed.
I also did some work in my bujo. I did my October tracker. I set up next week and realized that the month of October starts on a Monday. I do my weeks from Monday-Sunday, so I did next week, skipped two pages for my October tracker and did my first week of October weekly. I went ahead and put my habit tracker in. It's so Halloween focused. October is Halloween month after all! Hey, my hosue has been decorated for Halloween since Septemer 1st. :p
So, while I was at the beach, I ordered a couple of things from Amazon to arrive today. That way I would have something to look forward to when I came back. What did I get? Well, I got a new Leuchtturm1917 for my 2019 bullet journal. It's Ice blue and gorgeous! I also bought a cool pack of brush pens that included their own case! Look at my goodies:
The last picture is of the new Leuchtturm and the current one. Look at how fat my current one is! LOL! I can't wait to set up the new one for 2019! It's going to be pretty cool. In other cool news, I went to a really neat place at Myrtle Beach....
This was seriously cool! I have to share the top of my receipt with you. Yes, I bought stuff. LOL Two Homer pins, a Maggie pin, a Lisa pin, and a Marge pin. Also a Homer keychain. I didn't see a Bart pin with the others. Here is the top of my receipt!
I didn't walk or do my workouts today. I took a day off to recover from the beach trip. I did mow and do my shopping. I also went to Starbucks because I was one trip away from a star dash. I made it! That gave me enough stars for another free drink. I now have three on my card. LOL! I also checked the Starbucks at Target while out and was glad I did. They had some summer die cut gift cards that I didn't have. YAY!
The street was wet when I got up today and it had rained, but it wasn't raining at the time I usually go for my walk, so I decided to go. I made it without getting wet. It did rain for a few minutes but it wasn't hard and it wasn't very long. I only had to use my umbrella about 3 minutes. I got home and cooled off. I then went to the grocery store to get my monthly groceries. It got really overcast while I was in there and I was just hoping I could get home and get my groceries in before it rained again. I made it! I got all my things and put away. I rested for a bit and then my friend picked me up. We went to South Boston to the Goodwill and to Dini's Brother's pizza. I tried their philly cheesesteak. It was pretty good, but their pizza is better!
At Goodwill, I got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for $2! I also got a Under Armour fitness backpack. I use a fitness backpack every time I walk and they wear out eventually. This looked brand new so I got it to have on hand when mine dies. My current one is Everlast and I got it at Kmart. We don't have a Kmart anymore. :(
I also got a binder, a coffee mug, and a cute stencil set. It's a 'kiddie' type, but there are some good stencils in the set that I can use in my bujo! I love stencils. After we got back to the city and he dropped me off, I went to get gas for my car and get a few things I needed. My first of the month necessities. The Family Dollar I went in had these big jar candles that were $5. The eucalyptus mint one smells JUST LIKE the $20 ones that Bath and Body Works used to sell! I had to buy one. I'm burning it now and it smells amazing!
One last thing to add about the day. I didn't mention this earlier, but I won another Fossil purse on ebay last week. I got it today. It's gorgeous! It's one I saw in 2011 in a Fossil catalog. It's a satchel bag and it's coral and it's gorgeous. The picture does not do it justice!
The second one is closest to the actual color. If it is sunny tomorrow, I'll take some pictures outside.
Yes, it was double star day at Starbucks today. I asked my friend if she would like to go to Hobby Lobby and Starbucks. She actually did!!! Yay! She went to Starbucks first, so I was drinking my delicious cascara latte in HL. :P Why did I go to Hobby Lobby? Well, in one of the bullet journal groups I'm in, someone mentioned that they bought a big pack of Stabilo pens on clearance. I was hoping our local HL would have them. They did!!!! I got a set of 25 in a roll case for $7.49! These are usually $29.99. It had a bunch of colors that I didn't have as I only have the ten pack. I love the Stabilos and had wanted a bigger pack of them for more variety. I was so glad to find this deal. They are so nice and they come in the cool roll up pack. Easy to take with. I'll be using them a lot in my bullet journal. I tend to use my Stabilos more than my Sharpie pens. I use a black Micron as my main black pen because it's an 08 so the nib is larger. I like that.
I am going to do a pen test page in my bujo even though I know these don't bleed. It will really be a color swatch page. I have two pages right at the front of my bujo that I never used. This will be perfect! ^_^ I am so happy to have found them. It's cool to have a big set and the included case just makes them even better!
It was overcast today before I walked, but I looked at the weather and the sun was supposed to come out while I was walking. It did! It was sunny for the entire walk. After I got home, it clouded up aq bit and it even rained a little earier. I got in my workouts, my French, and my squats. I swear they are killing me. LOL!
After my friend and I got back to her house, I stayed for a while to see her animals. I had to hold my little Cocoa as I love her so! She is such a little cutie pie. Unfortunately, when I got home, I had a lot of dog and cat hairs, I smelled like dog, and I had a small poop stain on my pants! LOL! The joys of animals. :p I tossed the pants in the wash and changed into a dog free shirt. :p As I'm typing this post, I'm charging my Fitbit. It's life is usually 5 days. It was only down to 35%, but I knew that if I didn't charge it today, it might get too low tomorrow. Fitbit says the battery lasts 5 days and they are correct! It's still doing great and I absolutely love it.
I totally meant to get my letters caught up tonight and didn't do any. I suck! Hopefully tomorrow. Well... I had planned to get Starbucks AFTER HL and then come home and do letters while sipping Starbucks and that just didn't happen. Maybe another day. I'm still very happy about my Stabilos! lol
Well, it usually is. I do my regular things and I wash my bed linen and my hair. I also had to make next week's weekly in my bullet journal. I also went to the grocery store today. I had gotten an offer from the store where you get money back loaded to your loyalty card. Mine expired because it was given to me too late. They were nice enough to send the amount on a gift card. I went and got some goodies today.
I got two packages of fresh strawberries, an orange, some frozen dinners that I'm particularly fond of, and some other things I needed. I also got a new kind of bar that I saw on the cereal aisle. It was something with almonds and something else. I can't remember right off and it's in the kitchen! It looked good so I got some. I also got some apple juice. They have their store brand for .95. I love their apple juice. It tastes just as good as the national brands. I'm trying to have more healthy things in the house!
After the grocery store, I came home and put that stuff away and did a few things I needed to do. I was tempted to go get fast food, but I didn't! I did have a bit of a snack though. ^^; They had Stacy's pita chips on sale and I love those things. They are so good. I call them, "crack in a bag". lol
My friend recently got a puppy. I hadn't seen it until today. I was coming back from my walk and I saw her in the yard. I thought she was walking Cocoa the mini wiener dog that I love so much, but it was the puppy. Since I haven't met him yet, I had to go see. He has puppy breath and he is adorable! He is a Boxer pup and so cute. He whined when I left. Awww! I told her I was going to steal him. lol
I drove down to the post office this evening after going to McDonald's. I had an alert on my phone that through the McDonald's app, you could get any medium McCafe beverage for FREE with a $1 order! I decided to treat myself to a fry. :P I used mobile payment for the first time there. It was pretty cool. I ordered and paid. I typed which 'bay' I was in and they brought my order out to me. Pretty neat.
Since I was out, I went to the post office. I had seven letters. YIKES! I already have four to write and I have exactly 8 stamps. HELP!!!!! lol I am going to write the four I already have tonight or tomorrow and then I'll get to the others. I hope to get some stamps asap!
I am STILL waiting on my payment to clear at Fingerhut so they will ship my Fitbit. I'm getting so impatient. I wish I had the money to order one from Fitbit themselves. I would probably already have it. I hate waiting. I swear I've had other things clear the bank that have come out after that transaction. So annoying! If I had anything to sell, I would certainly do it. I thought at one time of opening an Etsy shop, but I need a sewing machine if I want to do anything with fabric. I can do repairs on my stuff, but to create something, I'd want a sewing machine!
I wish I still had some stuff to sell on Ebay. Any extra money would help me a lot. I shouldn't have gotten anything today from McDonald's, but the free coffee was too tempting! :p I have money on my Starbucks card, so I'm covered there. I hope to get over there soon. I haven't had any since the beach trip. I am hoping they have cascara syrup. I want a cascara latte!
I got in a good walk today and then came home and did my workouts. I'm glad it was arm day, because my poor butt is still sore from yesterday's butt workouts. lol OUCH! I finished the book I was reading last night and started on a book about Ted Bundy. I've read many books about him, but not this one. It's good so far.
OH! I forgot to mention. Sometime ago, I found a cute double pencil / pen case on Amazon that I loved. It was an Adventure Time pen case with Finn and Jake on it. I loved it but it was over twenty dollars and that didn't include shipping! I recently found it on ebay by accident and I ordered it. I came today and it's so cute! Here is a couple of pictures:
So, I got in my walk today and it was nice out there. It was really windy, but other than that, it was warm and nice. I came home from my walk and had some coffee and was thinking of taking a nap. Then, I realized that I had planned to run to the mall to pick up a wallet I'd seen over there before. It was on sale for half price, so I went over and got it. It's BOC brand. I'd never seen this brand before I saw it last month in Belk. They have some cute stuff. It's a cell phone wristlet, but the pocket for the is way too small for my phone, so I am using it for my re-usable Starbucks sleeve. The sleeve is grey and it matches the wallet. See:
By the way, I removed the strap so it isn't a wristlet now. :p I quite like it. The white polka dotted thing in the background is a cool zip up binder I found at a local Goodwill. This is the inside:
I can't find any evidence of tags, so I'm thinking it might have been handmade. I absolutely love it. It's so pretty! I got one other goodie at the Goodwill, well... I got more goodies, but these are the ones I wanted to show you. I got this cool stencil:
I thought it would be cool to use in my bullet journal! It was a mere fifty cents, so I bought it. The other things I got were a plastic snowman, a tin with Jack o lanterns on it, some blank business card sheets, a mini coffee cup, and a Myrtle Beach t-shirt. LOL I get back from the beach and buy a MB shirt at Goodwill!
My friend and I went to Eden, N.C. today to eat and walk. We ended up eating and then going to Goodwill. Walking wasn't done. lol It's okay. I'd already gotten in my regular walk. I also did my workouts so I'm all good. Now, I plan to relax a bit before bed. I am still waiting on Fingerhut to ship my Fitbit! They have a down payment for first time people and I did that yesterday, but they wait until it clears before shipping. I understand why they do that, but I wish they could just send mine on. I can't wait to see how I like it.
