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!


ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess what did NOT come in today's mail?  That's right! My Leuchttrum!  It was delayed.  Overnight shipping, my ass! :(  I contacted Amazon and they are on the case.  It seems that the carrier (USPS) screwed everything up and now it's supposed to get here tomorrow.  I'm glad she told me that because at the Amazon site, it said if I hadn't gotten it by the tenth!!!! to let them know.  UGH!  It went from upper Virginia to Durham North Carolina.  That means they had to drive it right past my city. ~_~; I don't know what it the world they are doing.  I'm so frustrated.  I was so ready to get it all set up today.  Hopefully it will come tomorrow.

I also ordered a phone case for my LG G5 that is supposed to get here Saturday, but I'm skeptical about that at the moment.  We'll see if I get it.  I'm just so annoyed.  I hate anticipating something and then it not happening.  Amazon is refunding me the money I paid to upgrade to over night shipping for the journal.  If it does come tomorrow, I'll do a post about it.  Wish me luck!

OH! I changed the background of the page to one that is seamless.  I like it, what do you think?


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


Working on the Bullet Journal

Today I've been working on my bujo.  I have my October habit tracker done. ^^; Yes, I'm that much ahead. lol  I also did a two page beach memories spread.  I think it turned out nicely.  Here it is:

The lighting in my house sucks!  I need to start taking all my bujo pictures outside in natural light!  At the beach, I did a bullet journal video that I need to upload to my YouTube channel.  I actually shared my bujo on the beach. :)


A real post!

Yes, I thought I'd make a real post today.  It is Saturday and it's really nice here today.  After my workouts, and lunch, I went to the park.  I wanted to Pokemon Go a bit.  I was running really low on Pokeballs, so I hit a bunch of stops.  I also walked around in the park a bit.  I made a new bujo video too!  I think this one is better than the one I did before.  I am uploading it now.  I have to review it and make sure it looks okay.  If so, I'll share it.  My new Moleskine is now completely set up and ready to go!  I can't wait to use it.

Yesterday, my friend and I went for a walk .  As we were heading towards the end of our walk, I spotted some beautiful daffodils.  I just had to pick a few to carry home.  All my daffs have already bloomed and gone for this year.  These are pretty cool.  There are three flowers on each stalk.  I took this picture of them:

Aren't they beautiful?  They now are on my desk making it look prettier.  After I finish this post, I'm going to relax for a bit until dinner time. I haven't decided what I want to fix for dinner yet.  Something good, I hope!  


Layouts!

I'm looking online for inspiration for weekly layouts for my new bujo.  I want to do a two page spread of two weeks.  I have been doing a two page, one week spread.  I want this bujo to last a long time as I've spent a lot of time setting it up so far.  I've found several different layouts that I like.  I just have to choose one and use it!  I have a couple that I'm going back and forth between.  I might do one for one side and the other for the other.  That way I can see them side by side and see how they work for me.  

In other news, I went for a walk tonight.  I just got home a few minutes ago.  My friend needed to run by a store and I went with him. Then he wanted to eat dinner, and it was time for my dinner!  We went to Cici's.   I probably ate a little more than I should have, but it was good!  I am now home and relaxing.  I'm going to put those two spreads in my bujo and see which one I like the best.  I'll be sure to share them soon. :)


Good things!

It has been a really long day and I'm about to get on my bed and relax for the rest of the evening.  Before I do, I wanted to do a post.  I had a checkup today at the doctor.  My appointment was at 1 pm, but I didn't actually see her until 2:15!  I was annoyed that I had to wait so long, but I got through and came home.  I did my workouts and then ate lunch.  I haven't done a lot since then.  I have done more work on my Moleskine bujo!  I added some new pages.  Also, I went in and took out some of the printables an re-did them with pen!  I will take a new video soon of the update.  So far I'm loving it.  I can't wait to move into it.   I have two more two page spreads that I want to do.  I am not sure what I'll use them for.  Probably collections.  I just have to decide what!  I am going to look at some bujo inspiration sites while relaxing on the bed.  I'm hoping to find something cool.  I have some idea, but I'm not sure exactly how I want to use them.  I will do an updated video and share it soon!


Monday again?

Yes, it's Monday again.  I haven't done a lot today as I'm still a bit sick.  It was cold today and it rained some too.  I just stayed in with my tissues! lol  I hope to knock this mess out soon.  I despise to be sick.  I have been doing my daily workouts even though I've been sick.  I also created a new page (Well two page spread) in my new bujo today of Adventure Time quotes!  I can't draw, so I took a picture of Finn and Jake and put it under the page and traced them.  I can't even trace all that great, but I like the results.  I colored in Jake with a yellow colored pencil and I colored in Finn's shirt and shorts with two different blue pencils.  At the top of the other page, I put a little picture (also traced) of Jake.  I was going to do an episode tracker, but there are so many!  I thought a quote one would be cool and I wanted the little 'drawings'.  

 


Sunday is almost over!

I have been busy all day.  I just realized that it was almost 10 pm and I haven't posted to my blog today.  I am going to do that and then wash my hair and crash.  I have a bit of a cold coming on and that sucks.  My nose has been runny all day. I went to the store to pick up a few things I needed and I got some tissues while there.  I'm going to need them!

I finished the setup on my Moleskine bullet journal.  It's looking great!  I am working on a video and hope to have it ready soon.  I made one earlier, but I didn't like the quality so I did another.  I hope this one is better.  I set up this coming week in my current bujo.  It's shiny!  Here is that one:

Bullet Journaling

I decided to give my Moleskine dotted journal one more try for Bullet journaling.  I had done a few pages in it before but one of my pens bled even though I had done a pen test.  I went back and checked and that particular pen had bled on the test page too! I decided to re-do the first few pages and see how it went.  I'm loving it!  I want to take a quick video as soon as it's all set up and ready to go.  I'm going to use my current Bujo until the end of this month and then start my new Bujo for April.  I already have my key, two Pokemon trackers, a book tracker, an expense tracker, a order tracker, and I have printed out some things to put in there.  I am going to leave a few pages for more trackers and then start the April pages.  I love how it looks so far and can't wait to share it with you.  I hope to get that done tomorrow. I worked a long time on it today and I have a bit more to do and then I'll have it ready to share.  So far, it's wonderful.  I think I'm going to love the dots!
