Another day almost done...

It rained last night and the street was wet this morning, but I didn't see any rain falling.  I was happy because I do not like to walk in the rain. It's such a pain to hold my umbrella.  Literally! It makes my back hurt horribly.  I got in my entire walk and no rain. Yay!  I actually got a few minutes start, so I got back a little earlier than usual.  I came in and relaxed a bit until I did my workouts.  After doing those, I was sore.  I soaked in a tub of very hot water.  I stayed in there a while and then got out and got dressed for going out.  I went to Hobby Lobby and got six new rolls of washi.  One two pack was marked down to $1.  The other two were on sale.  One 50% off and the other 40% off!  Everything else I got was a markdown item.  I got a Webster's Pages traveler's notebook. It's pink and cream striped and it's lovely.  It was $29.95 originally.  I got it for $7.49!  I also got some cute mini stampers, a little planner envelope, some page clips, a magnetic pencil holder, and some pretty feather designed paper.  It's on a roll but it's paper.  It's pretty.

I was leaving there and heading to Starbucks.  I got a text, so when I was at the stop light, I looked.  My friend wanted to go to eat dinner, so I texted him that I was on my way home.  I switched lanes and headed home. He picked me up a bit after that and we went to eat.  He ran me by the post office too.  I had two letters.  One from a pal that I haven't heard from in a long time and I was worried about her.  I'm so glad she wrote!  

I'm going to get off of here and read my book and then play some Animal Camp and then crash.  I'm yawning myself silly as I am typing this!


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!

 


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!


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.  ^________^


Prime failed me again!

I ordered an item on Monday with two day shipping.  It was scheduled to arrive today no later than 8pm.  Guess what didn't come today?  It is now in limbo as it's been for the past few days. ~_~; I wish that Amazon would use another service for Prime members.  I'm not going to re-new my membership, that is for sure!  I ordered my bullet journal earlier this month and did one day ship on that,  It didn't get here next day.  Then, I ordered two different items.  Neither got here on time.  This one is just the icing on the cake.  This package went from Texas to Kentucky to North Carolina!  WTF?

As for my Etsy order, it's supposed to arrive tomorrow!  I can't wait to see my little charms.  I'll do a write up on them if they arrive tomorrow.  I'm hoping that my Amazon package will get back on track and get to me tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath!

I went out today and cleaned the snow off of my car and drove it to the end of the driveway and backed it back in.  I decided that I'd better at least drive it out into the street so that if there was a snow bank at the end of the driveway, I'd flatten it.  I did just that.  I drove around the block and then came back and parked it.  Now there is a path to get out of my driveway if needed.  I noticed that off all my surrounding neighbors, I'm the only one that cleared my front walk.  I hope the mail man appreciated it!  He did deliver mail today but it was all junk mail.  

I just finished my workouts not too long ago.  I am going to play more Pocket Camp and then read more on my book.  I am not planning on being able to walk tomorrow.  My friend that takes me out sometimes came today and we went to eat.  The sidewalks that I could see on the main road were still snow covered and it was high because of the city workers scraping the streets.  I am not sure how bad it is all the way down, but for safety reasons, I'm going to wait until Saturday to try to walk. Also, the street that is above mine that I have to walk on to get the main road is still covered.  It looks like an ice skating rink! I'd have to walk very slowly and very carefully so I'm giving it another day.  I think it's supposed to get up in the forties tomorrow, so that will help.  The sun coming out today helped too! 


Water, water, water!

My friend was able to fix the pipe today.  He did a temporary fix.  I won't be able to use the outside water spigot, but I don't have leaks right now. ^___^  I was able to wash dishes and take a bath. Bliss!  I'm so relived to have that fixed.  It was horrible not having running water.

I got in a great walk today.  It was so nice outside.  I actually was able to take my jacket off and walk in a short sleeve shirt!  Seriously!  It was so nice out there.  It's much nicer to walk when it's not freezing outside.  I came home and would have done my workouts, but I knew my friend was coming at some point to look at the water problem.  I had plenty of time, but I didn't know that!  He came, looked at the problem and then the two of us went to Lowe's to get things to fix it.  He was able to fix it and we got the water turned back on and everything seems great!  I was so relieved.  It will be inconvenient not having that outside spigot, but I do have one in the front yard.  It's harder to get to, but the important thing is, I have water in the house!

I'm in a much better mood than I was yesterday!


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.  

 


Oops!

Yeah, I guess you can tell that I didn't come back yesterday and add anymore to my post.  Oh well!  I'm really tired tonight too, so I'm not sure how much of a post this will be.  I should be fixing dinner, but I don't want anything I have and I don't feel like going to the kitchen at the moment in any case!

I did walk and do my workouts today.  It was warmer today.  Around 70ยบ!  It was nice.  It was in the sixties yesterday.  Sadly, tomorrow it's going to be cold again.  The brief warm spell was nice while it lasted.  I went to the post office this evening and checked my box.  I had a lot of mail.  Yay!  I had wanted to go from there to Starbucks, but my car acted up a bit on the way to the post office, so I decided to just come home.  Maybe another night this week.  

Now, I just have to figure out what the heck I want to fix for dinner.  It's not anything I have in the house, that is for sure.  Sadly, that is all I have to choose from! Phooey!


Friday is stretch day!

Yeah, it was stretch day on the calendar.  Those are good, but they can also be painful! :p  I walked and it was a bit colder than I thought it was going to be.  I was a bit chilled when I got back home.  I had one thick fitness pants, but the front of my legs were red from the cold when I got home and changed.  Ouch!  Hopefully it won't be so cold tomorrow.  It probably will be though. I just looked up the forecast, it's going to be a little warmer tomorrow. YAY!

Other than walk and do my workouts, I haven't done a lot today.  I did run to the post office and check my box.  I had three letters and a holiday card.  Those are always nice to get. ^_^  Any mail that isn't a bill is always nice to get!  I am going to get off of the computer and get in my bed and snuggle under the covers and play more Pocket Camp. ^_^ It's so cute and so fun.
