Friday feelings....

I got up today and noticed it was overcast.  The street was wet so it had rained at least a little.  I seriously thought about not walking today and just taking the day off.  I got up and walked anyway!  I'm glad I did.  There was no rain.  I may take a day off tomorrow, though.  My foot is still giving me issues, and I figured a day off wouldn't hurt.  I could lay around and read and play Pocket Camp all day. :p  We'll see!

So, I came home from my walk and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  It's stretch day so that is always good.  It's also painful! LOL!  After doing my workouts, I did my French lesson and then was about to fix lunch.  My friend texted me and said we were eating at 5.  I didn't know this, but I figured, why not. :P  We ate at one of our favorite local restaurants.  I had 3 1/2 cups of coffee with lunch.  They have such good coffee! Yum!  I had baked ham, creamed potatoes, and corn pudding.  They have really good corn pudding!  My friend needed to go to Walmart.  I don't shop there at all, but I told him I wouldn't mind waiting in the car.  I had my Kindle with me so I wasn't bored.  He brought me home and I took a bath and then fixed dinner. I'm watching the Olympics again.  Sunday is the closing ceremonies. What will I watch next week?! lol

After I post this, I'm going to Amazon to see if I can find more good true crime books to borrow with Kindle Unlimited.  I finished the one I was reading just a bit ago.  Hopefully I'll be able to find something good!


Starbucks and shoes?

Yes, that is what this post is about!  First of all, I wore my new shoes today.  My foot is still hurting, but not as much as it has been.  I think the shoes are going to help.  They are Saucony Cohesion 11.  I have had Saucony shoes before and I really like them.  These are in Fog Blue color and they are gorgeous.  Here is a stock photo:

I love blue. My friend was nice enough to get these for me and I will pay him back soon.  They are comfy and pretty!

 

Now, on to the Starbucks part of this post.  I got the item that I mentioned earlier this month.  It's a card and case from China!  It came today all the way from Beijing China.  I did a little collage of it.  It's so cool!  It has the card, the case, a little notepad, and a little booklet about the Gold program in Chinese. :D

Starbucksgoodies

I love it! The case has the siren tail embossed on it and Starbucks embossed on it. I am in love. ^__^  After walking and doing my workouts, I spend some time outside. It's warm and nice today.  I then went to Starbucks and treated myself to a free venti cascara latte.  I had three free drinks on my card. :p  I have two now! :D


Posting between events!

Yes, I'm watching the Olympics again.  I figured I'd post between events.  I've seen the Super G and now it's the men's figure skating.  Everyone has done well so far.  Nathan Chen really made come back.  I hope he medals!  His short program had so many issues, but he really did great in the long program.  Six quads landed!  Whoo! It was great! 

Okay, they just announced that the lady that they thought had won the Super G is actually in second place!  Another skier beat her by a tiny margin.  I guess we'll see if she hangs on to the lead, but I'm thinking she will.  This has been a good Olympics!  

I checked my weather app today before walking as I always do and it said there would be no rain until at least 2 or after.  They lied! LOL  It started raining on me not very long after my turn around point.  I had to hold my umbrella for most of the walk home.  I was not really happy about that, but what could I do?  I got home and was a bit damp, but not too badly.  I had a snack and relaxed a while.  It was stretch day so it always takes a lot less time to do workouts on Friday.  I did those and then was going to fix lunch, but my friend said we'd go eat.  We went to Westside diner which is a local place that is really good.  I had breakfast food and coffee.  They had some damn good coffee! I even got a cup to go! :p

I'm not sure what the weather is supposed to be like tomorrow.  I heard possible rain, but that doesn't mean it will.  I hope it won't.  If it's really rainy, I may just skip tomorrow's walk.  I hate to do that, but it really hurts my back to walk while holding an umbrella and I'm having some feet issues.  My shoes are worn out and the ball of my left foot is giving me a lot of problems.  I have ordered a new pair of shoes but they won't be here until tomorrow.  I'm hoping they will help.  I've never tried this brand for walking, so I hope I like them.  They are Sketchers.  I have only had one pair before that were just regular sneakers and I didn't like those.  I'm hoping I like these.  They look like they'd be really comfy and they had great reviews.  I just hope I like them!


What a day!

So, I woke up today to warm weather!  The high today was 72!  It was really nice.  The sun even came out for a bit.  It's been so cloudy and overcast for so long.  It was nice to see the sun.  I got in a nice walk and came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I got those done and then did my French lesson and had a few minutes to relax before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I was just hanging out and then I thought about going to Starbucks.  I wanted to go, but I didn't want to get there and not have a place to sit.  I decided that I'd go and if there was nowhere to sit, I'd get a drink and bring it home with me.

I got there and one of the little tables was free!!!!  I put my messenger bag down to hold that table and went to get in line.  I got my cascara latte, a venti!  I also got two new gift cards that I didn't have.  They were just putting them out! I had my pen pal letters with me.  I wrote to all my pen pals and drank my latte.  While I was writing, I noticed that the couple that has the Corgi.  I had to go see him.  I got lots of Corgi kisses!!!!!! He is such a sweet pup.  The pair are regulars like myself.  I was telling her about this being my fourth time coming and trying to get a place to sit.  She said they'd been having the same issues.  I really wish the place was bigger.  We both miss the old location.

I stayed at Starbucks after I finished my letters for a bit and then headed out.  I went by the post office to check my box.  I couldn't mail my letters as I didn't take any envelopes or stamps with me.  I'll mail them on tomorrow's walk.  I only had one letter at my box.  I'm totally caught up except for the new one that just came.  I have the names of two potential pals and I'm going to write a couple of  small intro letters to sent to them with my 'new pal' letter.  I'll do that and then I'll read and play more Pocket Camp.  I'm watching the Olympics again.  More Skeleton tonight.  This stuff is nuts!  The male figure skaters are on tonight too.  


Well then!

I walked and worked out at the regular times today.  I really wanted to go to Starbucks today, but I never got over there!  I was a bit hesitant since the last several times I've gone, I haven't been able to find a seat.  I knew if I went and couldn't find a seat, I'd be pissed, so I just stayed at home!

I am now on book five of the Zombie series I'm reading.  I am loving that all the books were available on Kindle Unlimited!  I finished book four today and started book five.  The books are really good and they are quick reads.  I am really loving this series!  It's the Killing The Dead series by Richard Murray.  I'm really enjoying it.  This author likes to leave books on cliff hangers! I'm glad I'm able to borrow them all from Kindle.  I'll read these and then look for more books to try on my Kindle Unlimited trial.  As fast as I'm reading these, I'm definitely going to get my trial's worth!

I'm watching the Olympics again.  I'm waiting on the Pairs free skate, but I'm enjoying the other events  That skeleton event is CRAZY! LOL  It's scary just watching.  How in the hell do they steer with their arms back?!  Yikes!


Monday, Monday...

Okay, so I didn't post much yesterday, so I'll make up for it to my readers.  Do I even have readers?  My stats say so, so I am hoping I do! ^_^  I got up today and it was overcast again.  I thought it was supposed to clear off.  Sadly, it wasn't clear today.   did notice that it wasn't raining though.  I went for my walk and it didn't walk at all.  I was glad of that.  It didn't rain the entire time I walked.  It tried to sprinkle a bit  but it didn't amount to anything.

I stopped at the pharmacy and got a couple of bags of Luden's Honey Lemon cough drops.  My favorites.  It's hard to find them these days.  They are the only place that carries them around here.  I got those and then headed back home.  The pharmacy is near one of my half way points.  I got back home and relaxed for a bit before doing my workouts.  There were six today instead of five.  It was butt day and my butt was already sore before I started.  It was really sore afterwards! LOL!  After doing those, I did my French lesson and relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.  I had a good lunch and then took a bath to soak my poor sore body. 

My friend's mom had a birthday today so I was invited up to their house to dinner.  I got some delicious homemade tortellini.  Yummy!  I stayed a while after eating and then came home.  Now, I'm posting to my blog and watching The Flinstones.  I had a nice warm cup of coffee when I got home from dinner!  I thought about going to Starbucks, but I didn't.  I actually got to go yesterday in all the craziness.

I went to Target last night to see if I could find some Moleskine cahiers or something similar to use in my A5 Webster's TN.  Target now carries some Blue Sky brand TNs and they have some things to put in them.  They had a two pack of notebooks.  They are the perfect size for my new TN.  They are pink and white just like the TN I got.  They looks great in there and they fit perfectly.  

The other items I got at Target was a three pack of Brit and Co. washi that was $1.74. I also got four of the cute colorful heart washi from the dollar spot.  I got a roll of it earlier and liked it a lot.  I got four more rolls last night.  I love the colors of it and at $1 a roll, I couldn't pass it up.  The dollar spot washi rolls are small, so it will be nice to have extras.

I didn't go to the Starbucks while I was in there!  I actually had gone to the regular one earlier in the day.  My friend's asked me to ride with them somewhere and I agreed.  We went by Starbucks so I could get a Cascara latte. If I hadn't already had one earlier, I probably would have gotten one when I went to Target.  I also went to the grocery store while I was out and got a few things I forgot to get earlier.  I then ran by the dollar store because I forgot to get milk and I wanted to get a couple of Wise snack packs.  They are $2 and they have eight small bags of Wise snacks. (regular chips, popcorn, crunchy cheez doodles, and puffed cheez doodles.) There are two of each variety in the pack.  It's good for a quick snack and it's portion control too!

 


Double stars!

It was double star day at Starbucks today.  I found this out after I went last night! lol  I saw a mug that I really wanted at the Target Starbucks when I went earlier and I decided that today was a great day to buy it.  Double star days are great.  Normally they give you two stars for every dollar you spend. On double star days, you get 4.  I try to buy any drinkware on double star days.  If there isn't any drinkware I need or want, I just get something to drink or eat. ^__^

I didn't get anything to drink today since I had a latte from the regular location yesterday.  I love my new mug. It's now my current favorite coffee mug. lol  It's very spring like.  Here are a few pictures:

 

 The lighting in my house sucks!  I did the best I could with these.  I love this mug.  It's so pretty! Just what I needed, another item for my massive Starbucks collection! LOL!


GRRRRR

So, I loaded up the messenger bag tonight and headed to Starbucks. I was behind on letters and planned to go over there and get them all done.  I get there and there is someone leaving.  Yay, I think, there will be a table open.  Nope.  Someone that was at the big table moved to it when the other guy left.  There was no other place to sit. :(  I got my drink and stood around for a bit hoping there would be an opening, but nothing.  I just left and went back to my car. This is twice now I've tried to go without being able to find a place to sit.  It's so annoying!  I miss the old location.  They had more seating.  

Anyway!  I came home with my cascara latte and wrote my pen pal letters.  I decided to type them.  I got them all done and printed and drove down to the post office and mailed them off.  I had three new ones in my box.  I will get these done within the week.  I need to start doing a schedule.  Give myself only one week from when I get a letter until I write a reply and send it back.  That way I'll stay caught up.  This used to work perfectly when I was going to Starbucks every week.  

In other news, I got my walk and workouts in.  The end!


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! ^__^


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!
