Cascara latte Feed

Saturday Starbucks!

I went out to the post office today and picked up my mail.  I had a lot of mail, but only one item was a pen pal letter.  Boo!  I got all that and decided that since I was out, I would go to Starbucks.  I did!  I got my favorite, the cascara latte and headed home.  More places have power here now, but there were some still without it.  The section I walk through was still out today. I don't know when they will get that back on. I did see them working on some lines when I walked down. They were gone when I got back but the places were all still dark.  Hopefully they'll get that back on soon.  The parks are closed as all of them have either flooding or trees down.  I always cut through the front of one park on my walks and there were a lot of trees down in there.  They were working on those today too.

I'd like to go out and see if there are more places with power now.  I know some houses are still without.  I hope they are able to restore everyone's soon.  It's not fun to be without power.  I am just glad it's cooler so it's not so hot!  That helps when you don't have power.  I might go out in a bit just to see if the section that was off earlier has been restored yet. I don't know.  I can't decide what I want to do. lol I'm such a silly!  


Coffee!

Yesterday was National Coffee day and I didn't even mention it in my blog post.  Oops!  I did have coffee yesterday, of course.  I went to Starbucks in the afternoon to get a latte.  It's not National Coffee day unless I go to Starbucks. :p . I went in for a change and got my drink.  I wanted to see if I could get any new gift cards.  I got the cute Halloween one and a couple of the eletronic load onces.  They didn't have the cut out fall ones.  The Barista said they didn't get any.  I'll keep an eye out at other places.  I found the cut out summer ones after the season at a Starbucks, so hopefully, I can still get a set of these.

I went on ebay today and listed some more anime cels.  These are all a lot less than my Nuriko cel.  I hope to sell some of them, but if not, that is okay too.  I just want to get some money to help cover the bill that I had that I shouldn't have had to worry with!  I should list some of my extra Starbucks cards.  I could have some small listings or a huge lot.  I might do that.  I have the rest of the day to list some more things.  I had some free listings and they end tomorrow.  I figured now was the perfect time to list things!

I walked today even though I really didn't want to . I came home and relaxed a bit and then mowed the front lawn.  I also carried branches to the street for tomorrow's pick up.  I have already washed my bed linen and it's in the dryer.  I haven't checked on it in a while. I already washed my hair today, too.  The only thing that I have to do is put the bed linen back on the bed.  I'm thinking of changing to my fall/winter comforter.  I might do that.  I need to go check and make sure it's okay. It's in a room that sometimes gets musty.  I'll have to see if it smells fresh.  If not, I'll have to air it out before I put it on the bed!

I'm going to do that after posting this and then check to see if the bed linen is ready to go back on the bed.  I am already into book six and will probably finish it sometime today.  I'm also checking in on Pocket Camp a lot because there is an event going on.  It's a Halloween one and I adore Halloween. I want ALL the Halloween goodies!

Oh, if you are interested, here is a link to my ebay seller page:

Bullet Journal goodies!

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!


Monday birthday times....

Just has I figured, I didn't hear from any of my friends wanting to do anything today. I expected no less.  I skipped my walk and my workouts since I felt like it.  I did walk on the treadmill for a little bit, but no where near what I needed to do to get my steps in for the day.  Oh well.

I went to Starbucks this afternoon and got a crazy sweet concoction.  I got a venti vanilla latte with 5 pumps caramel, whip, and caramel sauce drizzle.  WOWEEE was it sweet. @_@;  I'm so used to my Cascara latte. Oh well, it was good.  I saw Dookie the Corgi and his folks come in as I got there.  I had to park and go see Dookie and get Corgi kisses! ^______^ . That totally made my day!

I played with him a bit and then even got to give him his puppuccino! :D . I stayed a bit longer and then went on so I could drink my drink.  One of my prescriptions should have been ready yesterday, but they were out.  They were supposed to get some today, but they said it would be tomorrow! I was already a day late in taking them, so I asked if any of the other company stores had them.  They checked and said two of them did. I called the closest one and they said they didn't.  I called the one furthest away, and they had them! I had them fill them and drove to get them.  My car was acting up but I got there and back.

I did get something good for my birthday from myself! LOL I ordered a new Starbucks tumbler on eBay last week and two Starbucks gift cards to add to my collection.  They all came today.  Here is the tumbler and cards:

I love the color of that tumbler and the two cards are cool. The second one is now one of my favorite Starbucks card designs ever. Books, snow, and Starbucks coffee? Yes!  


Starbucks and GPS!

My old phone had a horrible issue with GPS.  It was readily apparent when I used my walking apps and Pokemon Go.  The new phone has no issues at all with GPS!  I was playing around with Google assistant and got it to give me directions to Starbucks yesterday.  It did okay, but it could have been more in depth.  I downloaded Waze last night to give it a try.  I loaded Starbucks in there and told it to take me there. Yes, I already know the way.  I could drive over there in my sleep.  I just wanted to test the app.  It did fine.  I got a drink while I was there. Of course. :P

I entered in the post office after that to see what it would do with that.  It kept trying to send me the wrong way!  I'm not sure if it was the app or me.  Probably me as I didn't pull over to start it.  After I left the post office, I told it to get me home and it tried to carry me quicker route home so that was okay.  I don't think I would depend on the Google directions or the Waze directions if I were out of town.  Of course, if I had been able to look at my phone, it would have been better.  I'll have to get a mount for my car.  I think if I could glance at the screen, it would be helpful.  If I get a mount, I'll try it again and see how it goes.  I think that would be good to use.  I can use it at the beach next month if I am walking and get turned around.   That actually happened one year.  I went walking and walked somewhere I'd never been.  It took awhile, but I got back to the ocean. LOL

I did NOT want to walk today.  I had made up my mind to skip it.  Then, I got my ass up and walked! It was so hot out there that I regretted it at first. I was happy when I got done and got home in the air conditioning!  I cooled off and relaxed and then did my workouts.  I wanted to skip those too, but I did them!  

 


Oops!

Sorry about yesterday.  I fully meant to post to to my blog and then Pocket Camp happened. lol . It was the last day of the gardening event and I was busy trying to finish it up at the last minute.  I was able to finish so that was good.  It wasn't until after midnight last night that I realized I had never posted to my blog.  Oops! I even had the Macbook Pro on my bed so I could do my post.  

I walked and did my workouts yesterday and I also went to Starbucks!  I had to get two things to finish a star dash I was in.  I did that and then got my stars.  I walked and did my workouts today, too.  I also went to the recycle center and got myself a frappe at McDonald's while I was out.  I came home and mowed the front lawn.  I planned to do it yesterday, but a storm came up and it was pouring rain.  Can't mow in those conditions!  I got the front done today and I need to do part of the back, but I have a migraine.  I'm in my room with only the lights that are strung on my bed frame and a candle for light.  I have the brightness on the MBP at the lowest level.  I had a migraine last night too.  I need to figure out what is triggering them.  I hate them.  I get them a lot where it's more being sick on my stomach.  The last two days it's been the sick on my stomach and my head is very unhappy!  Sitting in the partial dark does help.  

 


Never satisfied.

I changed the background and colors of the blog again.  I just can't seem to stick with one thing.  I like this for now. I'm not sure how I'll feel about it tomorrow, though. LOL!  Who knows. :P . 

I walked today and it wasn't as hot as it's been.  It was a bit overcast at times, but it didn't rain.  I hope it stays like it is. It's warm, but not too bad and it makes walking so much nicer.  I came home and had time to relax and cool down before doing my workouts.  It was leg day.  That wasn't too bad.  I did those and then my French lesson and then did a few things on the MBP and then fixed lunch.  It's almost time to fix dinner and I'm ready now! LOL!  I will fix something after I post this.  I try to eat my supper after 8pm each night.  Since I stay up so late, that keeps me from getting so hungry later in the evening and snacking.

I may go to Starbucks tomorrow and spend some time, and I may not.  I haven't decided yet.  I just hope that if I do decide to go I can get a table.  That is always a struggle.  I haven't been in such a long time.  I'm hoping to go time it and go at the right time to get a place to sit that I like and stay awhile.  It also won't hurt to have a latte. :p . I can always use a Cascara latte. :D


Charging my Fitbit Charge 2

So I can't move until it's done. LOL No, really. I'll move if I have to. :p . I am sitting at my desk on the MBP and I just had a delicious Venti Cascara latte! ^____^  I went to the grocery store and got a few things earlier and then I came back and realized that I wanted Starbucks.  Since I could actually drive my car, I went! I went through the drive thru and got my favorite drink.  Cascara latte with almond milk FTW!  Also, as I was driving out of the drive thru, I saw Dookie the Corgi. <3 . He is so cute!  It was nice to see him. 

I left Starbucks and came straight home.  I am not going to over do it on my car.  I want it to be able to take me to the places I need to go.  I went by the recycle center while on my grocery trip and noticed that the bins are pretty full.  I'll just wait and take my recycling on Monday when I know they'll be empty.  It makes it so much easier!  Plus, there were some construction vehicles parked close to them.  They are working on the road a little ways up.  I've seen them doing it on my daily walk.  I'll try to hit the recycle center Monday while they are still working so their vehicles won't be in the way!

It was very nice to get back to my normal routine today.  I walked and then came home and relaxed and cooled off.  I then did my workouts and my French.  I had time to relax for a bit after that before fixing lunch.  I decided instead of waiting so late to make my blog post, that I'd do it now.  I had thought about packing up the MBP and going to Starbucks for several hours, but I decided to just run over and get my drink via the drive thru.  I am going to go at some point and sit in for a while.  It's been way too long!


No, I didn't forget...

I've just been gone most of the day!  I went on my walk earlier and then came home and did my workouts and French.  I had lunch and then a friend picked me up and I rode with her to Burke's Outlet.  We left there and went through the drive thru at Starbucks. ^_^  I finally used my free drink. :p

After we left Starbucks, we rode around a bit and then went to her house.  We picked up her son and rode around in his car for a while and then went back to see what her  mom wanted for dinner.  I rode with them to pick up their dinner.  Bentto for one and pizza for the other two.  They dropped me home and I sat down to read some of my zombie fiction I wrote for Nano.  I was doing that when my other friend texted and asked if I had eaten.  I hadn't so we went to Eden to go to the Circle drive-in.  They were closed for the week!  We went to another drive up place called Dick's that has the same kind of food.  We ate there and then headed back to Danville.  He wanted a shake so I rode with him through the drive thru at Cookout.  He was taking me to McDonald's for a frappe, but the machine was down for cleaning. NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!  I really wanted something cold and delicious.  Oh well!

I came in my house and did my squats. I couldn't walk in a straight line after that. lol I then got my Macbook out and sat don to post.  I am going to read more of my zombie fiction.  I have an idea for book three for Novembers NANOWRIMO and I just might do it! I had thought I would be done with the series, but I have a good idea of something totally new to add so I will be writing notes and preparing for that.  

Now, I'm going to relax a bit.  I have a headache and my stomach doesn't feel too great. It's like I have a low grade migraine. Phooey on that!


Sipping Starbucks and blogging...

Yes, I am! I tried to get my friend to carry me over there but she wouldn't. Phooey on her! :P  I drove to the post office and then went on to Starbucks while out.  I got two letters.  I have those and the two I got recently. Sadly, I only have five stamps! :(  I only have those because my friend bought a book and gave me a few! I was happy about that.

My walk was quite steamy today.  When I left Starbucks, the bank said it was 94˚!  Yes, I got hot coffee. LOL!  It was so funny.  I walk up to the counter and look at the gift cards.  I got a few of the new special ones. YAY1  The barista said, "You want your cascara?"  :P  I said, "Yes,"  She said, "Hot?" I said yes. LOL  I'm the cascara lady at Starbucks. :p  I got my goodie and then left to drive home. I made it home safely and now I'm drinking my latte and blogging.

Last night right at midnight, I decided it would be a good time to move my room around.  I did it, too!  I like to change it up every so often.  The way it is now, I have more room on both sides of my yoga mat when I'm doing workouts, but I have less room long ways.  The only thing this will make trouble with is roll overs and they aren't in the videos a lot.  If they are, I can move my mat to a different spot.  

I've done my workouts and my French lesson.  I just need to do my squats for today.  I've been doing them everyday.  I've been loading the video that Cassey does and do them along with her.  I am walking at the time she goes live, so I watch it later in the day. That is the only thing I need to do for today.  I do need to hang a couple of beach wind chimes that I took down when I moved the room around.  They go in another spot when the room is this way. I need to do that and straighten the stuff under my bed and I'll be done.  I might get to my letters and write some tonight.  Who knows?! ^_^
