Cascara latte Feed

Stressful Sunday!

Well, the day was going okay at first!  I got in a good walk and came home and did my workouts.  I was going to relax for a bit after those and then fix lunch, but a friend called.  She wanted me to ride with her to look for someone.  She thought her mom was out drinking.  She wasn't!  I rode with her and it was time for lunch as we were going by Starbucks.  I got her to take me through the drive thru.  I got a cascara latte and a sandwich.  I think it was called the Double Smokey bacon sandwich.  It was good, I know that much!  That was my lunch.  We rode around and never found her mom.  We go back to her house and in just a few minutes, her mom shows up!  Then, my friend, has words with her husband and her mom!  I don't drink or smoke, but I felt like I needed one then. I finally got the hell out of there and came home to my nice quiet house.  I love being single!  

So, I jumped in the tub.  My friend's mom has a Boxer puppy and he is crazy fun.  He is also crazy.  He jumped all over me and got me dirty!  I took a bath and washed my hair and then got out of the tub.  I did my French lesson and now I'm sitting under the hair bonnet dryer drying my hair.  I'm trying to decide what I want to fix for dinner, but I don't have a clue to what I want!  I might fix what I'd normally fix for lunch since I didn't get to eat at home today.  Thank goodness for me always putting some funds on my Starbucks card at the beginning of the month.  I didn't have any money otherwise.  That sandwich was pretty damn delicious.  I've had the Bacon, Egg, and Gouda before, but this was soooooo much better.  Yummy!

OH! While we were out, I got my friend to carry me by the post office.  I had two pen pal letters.  Yay!  I had actually thought of going to Starbucks today after lunch, but going out with her messed up that idea.  Maybe I'll go one night this week.  I mean, I DID go, but that was because I had to eat and well, I wanted some coffee. :p

I think my hair is probably dry already.  It takes so much less time since I got it cut.  I wish I had gotten the back cut shorter.  It's too long already! :P  I'm going to play more Pocket Camp and watch more of The New Detectives on Hulu.  I've seen most of them many times, but the last two days, I actually watched two episodes that I'd never seen!  Either that, or they were first run and I'd forgotten them.  The show was from the early two thousands, so it's possible I forgot an episode. Finding one new one was amazing, two was down right weird.  My friend told me I should have played the lottery! LOL

 


Snow is possible!

Yes, we may get some snow here overnight and into tomorrow.  I almost skipped my walk today but then I figured if it snowed a lot tomorrow, I'd miss that day of walking so I went.  I wanted to walk to the post office but I didn't.  I did run out later and drove to the post office.  I only had one pen pal letter.  I got that and headed to Starbucks. I figured if I was going to be stuck in the house tomorrow, I'd at least have Starbucks tonight. :p  It was good, too!  I came home and did my workouts.

I am going to get off of the computer shortly and play some Pocket Camp.  I haven't played much today.  I want to relax a bit before bed.  I also want to read more on my current book. It's good so far, but I'm not very far into it.  I'm just waiting to see if we are going to have snow.  One local college has already cancelled classes for tomorrow and nothing has happened yet!  Weird.  I guess they are being extra careful.

I like to watch it snow from my window.  If it does snow tomorrow, I'm going to sit in at my desk in front of my window and watch it snow.  I plan on having a nice big cup of coffee with me and I also hope to write all my pen pal letters.  I only have four to write including the one that came today.  Oh and I found another potential one and I'm going to write a letter to her too.


Friday fun

So, I walked today.  It was overcast and rainy when I got up, but when I went to walk, the sun came out!  It started to cloud up a bit while I walked, but it never rained on me.  I came home and was in relaxing for a while when it started to rain a lot and hard!  I was glad I missed all that!  I was going to do my workouts but a friend had said we'd go eat, so I put them off.

He finally came and we went to a local restaurant that we like.  We ate and then he dropped me home.  I came in and checked my bank account to see if I had enough to get my hair cut.  I did, so I went to the mall.  I got my hair cut finally and it looks so much better.  It was really getting on my nerves before.  It's short in back and longer in front just like I like it.  I bet I lost five pounds just from hair! LOL!  I left there and went by Starbucks.  It is right there at the mall! :P

So, I didn't get my beloved Cascara latte.  I wanted to try the new Blonde espresso.  I got a blonde vanilla latte and it was amazing!  I used to get vanilla lattes and would had a lot a caramel to them.  I didn't have to add anything to this.  I'm really liking the blonde espresso.  It's good.  I say that the blonde espresso is good.  Give it a try!

I came home from the mall and washed my hair.  I always have to wash my hair after getting a cut.  I did that and then did my workouts.  I have yet to eat dinner.  Oops.  I usually have lunch at 4 and dinner at 8 or 9.  I ate a little later than usual for lunch, so I'm not too far off on dinner.  I'm going to fix that after I finish typing this up.  I've already done my French lesson and the French guide I bought from Amazon came today.  It will be a help in my learning the language.  With just me glancing in it, I see some things I didn't know why were done and now I get it.  Cool!  It has a workbook feel to it with lessons and quizzes.  I am going to enjoy using it.


Changes...

So, I changed the background of the blog and I changed the banner a bit.  I love it!  I did not forget to post yesterday.  When I came to do it, Typepad was having issues.  You could see the blogs, but you couldn't log into accounts.  It wasn't fixed before I went to bed so I wasn't able to post  

I walked today and it tried to sprinkle on me a little bit towards the end, but it didn't do too much.  I only had to use the umbrella for a few minutes.  My prescription was ready and I could have picked it up on my walk, but I didn't know until I got home!  I ent a bit ago and picked it up.  It's so weird getting used to a new pharmacy.  They have a drive thru at this one, but it was pretty full so I went in.  Inside was full too!  It probably would have been less people earlier in the day.  I'll try to remember that next time!

Since I had to go out and wait forever at the pharmacy, I decided that I could use some Starbucks therapy. :p  I went to Starbucks and got a cascara latte.  I went in because I wanted to see if they had the new Valentine's cards out.  They did! I got one of each of the six they have for Valentine's day this year.  Five are heart shaped with different phrases and one is a regular card with Happy Valentine's day on it.  I was happy to get them all.  

When I got home from my walk, I intended to do my workouts, but I got distracted by something else and didn't do them.  I will do them, it will just be later on this evening.  That way I can take my time and not have to worry about getting done before lunch.  

I'm loving the new look of the blog.  I think it's pretty. What do you think?


Sunday Starbucks

I got in my walk today. It's still very cold here. It hasn't gotten above freezing in over a week!  Hopefully it will warm up soon.  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I had lunch and then did a few things around here.  I decided that I wanted to go to Starbucks and write pen pal letters.  That is exactly what I did!  I went over and wrote out all my letters.  My poor hand was so sore!  I still need to get them in envelopes and stamped, but they are written.  

I got a Cascara latte while they still have the cascara syrup.  I'm going to be so sad when it's gone.  I'll have to figure out what I want to take it's place.  They are supposed to be introducing a new drink on the 9th.  I wonder what it will be?  Maybe it will be my new favorite! We'll see. I was able to get a new gift card tonight.  They had the new Year of the Dog cards and I picked up a few for my collection. ^_^

I have my bed linen in the dryer and it should be ready to put back on the bed.  I only have to wash my hair and my total to do list is done for today.  I took lots of pictures of my bujo at Starbucks.  Their lighting is so much better than mine!  I took pictures of my two weeklies, and some of my trackers.  It looks good!  I wish I had lighting like that at home.

 


Layout change....

Well, it's basically the same layout, I just added a banner and a background.  I see that the background isn't completely seamless.  I've tried a lot of different ones and this is my favorite thus far.  I had tons of seamless backgrounds in a folder on my computer from my Tumblr days.  I still have a Tumblr, I just haven't changed the layouts there in a while.  It's so hard to find good free seamless tiled backgrounds!

I like this at the moment, but I might not like it tomorrow.  We'll see.  As for today, I've been busy.  I got in my walk and then I changed into my jeans and headed to do my first of the month errands.  I went to Family Dollar and then got gas, I went to Starbucks and got a latte and then to Food Lion to get groceries.  I stopped at CVS since that is where my prescriptions will be since Kmart closed and then came home and put everything away.  I realized when I got here that I got everything I needed to make sandwiches except for the bread!  I ran back to the store and got some bread.  I was lazy and picked up my lunch at McDonald's.  I haven't eaten there in a while so that wasn't bad at all. The fries were FRESH! :D

I came home and I've been doing things around the house.  I just finished my workouts a while ago and I've been working on the layout of my blog ever since.  I like it so far.  I'm probably going to try to find a more seamless background.  I really like this one and wish I could remember where the heck I got it!  I still have my French lessons to do..  OH! I finally ordered a Leuchtturm dotted notebook today! :D  I also signed up for Amazon Prime since they now have it where you can pay monthly.  I paid an extra $4 for overnight delivery.  I can't wait to set up my new bullet journal.  This is going to be my 2018 one.  I was going to continue with my Moleskine, but I decided to start doing a bujo a year.  I can't wait to see if all the hype about Leuchtturm is legit! :D


Welcome 2018

So, today was like a usual day for me.  I went for a walk and then came home and did my workouts.  It was COLD on my walk, but I found my compression pants and I wore those under another layer and that helped a lot!  I wanted to walk to the post office while on my walk, but I just didn't feel like going that far today.  Luckily, a friend of mine offered to run me on two errands this evening. One was to the post office, and one was to Starbucks! :D  I had another free drink, and I got a Cascara latter, a Venti since it was free. I also got the coffee press ornament.  It's cute!  Now I have two from this year's ornament collection.  It was marked down to $3.99.  Today was an extra chance to get plays on #Starbucksforlife  I got the ornament so I'd actually have a purchase today since the free drink wouldn't count.  At least I don't think it would count.

I came home and played.  I didn't win, yet. :p  I have gotten several instant wins of bonus stars and I did win the fifty bonus stars spot.  I really want to win the grand prize.  I could go every single day if I wanted! :D :D :D  That would be amazing!  

So far, 2018 hasn't been too bad. I got Starbucks and I got to check my post office box. Yes, I had mail!  I had several pen pal letters.  Some from pen pals I haven't heard from in a while Yay!  I love getting letters.  I hope to be able to sit down tomorrow and get a bunch written.  I have a good stack since I got a few before the holidays.  I'd like to get at least half of them done and ready to mail.

Okay, I'm off to do my French lesson and then I'm going to play more Pocket Camp! :D  I'm waiting on my tree house to be built and it's taking forever! AHHHH!


Oh dear!

I needed to go to the post office and I wanted to go to Starbucks.  (free drink, three day streak).  My friend wouldn't answer texts, and the other friend wouldn't pick up the phone.  I truly need better friends!  Oh well, I chanced it and drove my poor old car.  It made it, but it acted up a few times.

I went to the post office first and checked my box.  I was glad I did.  A pal I haven't heard from in ages wrote.  I hadn't heard from him in a while and was a bit worried.  He is one I knew wouldn't just stop writing.  He HAD written, but the letter must have gotten lost in the mail.  I sent him a holiday card and said I hadn't heard from him in a while.  I was so happy to see his letter!  I had some other pen pals that I sent cards to hoping to re-start the letters.  One came back as address unknown.  I hate when that happens!  Oh well, I'm glad this one pal wrote me. I also got a card from a long time friend.  We go back to the Livejournal days!  I also got a bank statement and an ad.  I was glad I went.

After leaving there, I went to Starbucks.  I decided to go in because the drive thru was really long and there was no one at the counter to pick up drinks.  You know why no one was at the counter to pick up drinks?  They were all in line to order drinks! LOL!  I got in line and got my drink and a package of Peppermint cookie cremes.  I have never had them and they sounded yummy!  I got a venti because of my free drink, and the barista forgot to mark it as free.  Oh well, I'll have a free drink the next time so I'm not too upset.  I got my drink and headed home.  I still haven't heard from either friend!

I did walk today and it was nice again.  Right about sixty!  That is always nice.  I came home and relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.  It's stretch day on Friday's and that is always a nice break.  One of them I never have enough room in my bedroom to do it, so since it was a bit warmer today, I went into another room to do that one.  Ouch! LOL  For the rest of the evening, I'm probably going to relax and play Pocket Camp and read. I borrowed two ebooks from my library and I started on one the other night. It's a true crime and it's okay so far.  I want to read more and see how it goes.  

 


Not a bit of shame!

Yeah, I went to Starbucks again today. :p  I'm on a star streak. I had a free drink, so I didn't have to pay for that.  I did add a chocolate chip cookie though. :D  When I ordered it, she said to wait a minute and I was afraid she was going to say they were out, but luckily they weren't.  I got my goodies and headed home.

I need to go tomorrow too to finish my streak.  I'm not sure if I'll make it.  If I do, I have another free drink. Yay! :p  I need to play my daily plays at Starbucksforlife.com  I really want to win!  That would be so cool.  I have won three instant wins of ten stars each.  I also won the fifty bonus stars. Now if I could just get it for life!  Wish me luck. :D


Letters and Lattes

So, I had to mail some cards and letters out today.  I went to the post office that is across town.  Why?  Because it is near the Starbucks. :p  I mailed my things off and then went to the drive thru at Starbucks and got myself a cascara latte.  Finally!  It was so good.  I brought it home and settled in with it and Pocket Camp on the sofa for a bit.   After my latte was gone and I started to get chilled, I left and went to my room.  My room is the only one with heat in the house, so the rest of the house can get pretty chilly.  It wasn't too bad in the rest of the house today as it was in the fifties today and it was seventy yesterday!  I took three pictures tonight.  Two of the menu boards at Starbucks and my latte in front of my Yule tree.
