Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


First full day so far....

So, I told you in my earlier post that I might post again today.  Well, I'm posting!  I wanted to tell you about my day up until now.  I ate leftover pizza this morning and had three cups of coffee!  My friend and I sat on the balcony for a while just enjoying the view.  I decided after a bit to go out.  He wasn't ready to go yet, so I went out and walked.  I went to Big Lots, Dollar General, and several different beachwear stores.  All are having good end of the season sales.  I got two NICE t-shirts in the Bargain Beachwear (My favorite beachwear shops) for $10!  I thought that was a great deal.  One is the an exact match to one I got in June but in a different color.  It's red.  The other shirt I got today is blue.  Both are pretty.  

I also found myself a really nice heavy duty coffee mug in another beachwear store.  I can't remember which one at the moment. I always bring my bestie a present from the beach that is something to do with turtles.  It's getting harder and harder to find something different to carry her.  I found something though.  I won't mention it in case she reads this. :p

In that store, I found a pink long tank that I bought half off of the sale price, I think I paid $4 for it  I will use it as a beach cover up and it can also be a good workout shirt for at home.  I went in soooo many beachwear shops.  It's a nice diversion and it's usually nice and cool in them!

I came back here and I have my phone charging.  It went down to 11% while I was out. Oops!  I forgot that it wasn't fully charged when I left the room.  It's charging now and hopefully it will be pretty close to full when we go out tonight.  I am not sure where exactly we are going.  He mentioned perhaps the Dead Dog Saloon as we both love it.  We had planned to do that tomorrow night, but neither of us like the guy who is performing tomorrow night.  They have live music at the restaurant.

So, I may update again later tonight and I may just do it tomorrow. We'll see.  OH! I did my workouts this afternoon.  It was cardio.  WAH!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL  I did them though.  After I post this, I'm going to do my French lesson with Duolingo and then wait to see what we are going to do tonight.  I took a picture with Photobooth of the ocean. I don't think it will look as good as a picture from my phone, but I'll share it here:

Okay, not great, but it will do for now. :p


D'oh

I opened the tab on Chrome to post this and then went and did something else.  I guess I'll post now!  I did my workouts at the usual time today.  No Starbucks trip today.  I am trying to wait until at least the weekend. lol  I had a good lunch and I have already done my French lesson. I want to make a Starbucks tracker in my bujo. I want to track stores visited. I have decided to do it like this:

  Store  |  Location  |  Something here

I can't decide what to include in the third area.  I had a suggestion to include what I orders, any special things that happened, how they spelled my name. lol I just can't decide what I want that last bit to be.  As soon as I figure it out, I'll be making the spread.  I already have the page marked for it.  I think it's going to be pretty neat!

 In other news, I am waiting on a package from Amazon.  I ordered it on July 31st and I waited for days for it to ship.  It finally did and now I'm just waiting on it.  It still says it won't be here until Thursday.  Ten days to get a package is too long! :(  Makes me sad.  I had a $25 gift card and I got a passport size traveler's notebook, a set of purple washi tapes, and a pen.  I got the pen to make it $25 so I could get free shipping. lol  I guess I should have gone with paid shipping and maybe I'd have it by now!  I hate waiting on packages.  It's that stupid UPS - USPS shipping too.  I wish they could just sent it one or the other.  Oh well, it's in Roanoke now.  Hopefully it will be in Danville tonight and they'll transfer it to the post office early enough so I'll get it tomorrow.  I can hope!


Busy Thursday!

I went and did all my first of the month shopping.  I got groceries, and some other things I needed.  I went to Target and got some things from the Dollar spot and I found a new wallet.  It's really cute and it's funtional.  I love it.  Here is a link to the same one on Target's site:

Wallet  

They had the black, the bronze, and the blue in stock at the store.  I kept going back and forth between the black and the blue.  I finally decided on the blue.  I really like it.  It's very well made and it was a good price too!  In the Dollar spot, I found a cute little 5 page sticker book and three rolls of washi.  One is colorful paperclips and two (the same) are polka dots.  Of course, since I was in Target and they have a Starbucks, I went to Starbucks. :P  I should have waited as I plan to go to the new Starbucks location when it's open tomorrow.  Oh well, you can never have too much Starbucks. :P

I went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials, and I found some cute sticky notes and a magnetic graph notepad in the back to school section.  The sticky notes are a two pack.  One is polka dots and one is blue with rainbow and the words Dream Big.  Both are cute!  The little graph lined notepad has "Notes" on it.

I went back out later to pick up a few things I needed at the grocery store.  I stopped by CVS and found some of the Softlips cube marked down to .99 each.  I also found some orange flavored louzenges.  They were marked down to .52 and then were in cute little reusable plastic containers.  I'll reuse those for office supplies. I was about to go to check out when I checked this one aisle where they something sell random things.  They had some fitness leggings!  They were only $9.99 a pair.  I found a pair that are predominately grey with blue accents.  They are pretty nice.  I figured for the price, they couldn't be too bad.  I tried them on when I got home and they fit fine.  I can also use more workout clothes!

Speaking of working out.  I got home a little bit after I usually start to do my workouts.  I decided to do them when I got home.  I was done before time to fix my lunch.  I did that and then that is when I went to CVS, Food Lion, and Family Dollar. Oh.. and I got gas in my car too!

So, tomorrow, my only plan is to do my workouts and go to the new Starbucks. :D  I want to see how they have it set up.  I also want to see how much more seating there is.  Did I mention this new Starbucks has a drive thru? Whee! :P


Monday post time!

So, I had to do some errands for my friends that are out of town.  I went up to their house and got their van.  Yeah, I had to drive a mom van. lol  I went to check their post office box to see if they had any checks for their business.  They had one, so I went to Starbucks.  It was really hot outside and the van has no air!  I got a Cascara latte and sat in Starbucks.  I filled out the deposit slip and got that ready to go.  I enjoyed sitting in there for a bit and I got my favorite table!  I also worked on my bullet journal. I left there and went to the bank at the mall.  They closed the drive thru.  I had no clue. I remembered that their bank also has a location downtown.  I went down there and deposited the check and then since I was near the post office, I stopped in there.  There was plenty of parking for once. Yay! I checked my box and I had three letters.  One from a regular pal and two from new ones.  One is from one that I sent out a letter to recently to potentially be a pen pal.  She wrote back and wants to be. Yay!  I had another letter from a potential new pal.  It's cool to get letters!

So, I went to two post offices, the bank, and Starbucks.  I got home a bit later than I usually start my workouts, so I decided to just wait until after lunch to do them.  I finished them a bit ago and now I'm done for the day.  Well, almost done.  I have to go back up to my friend's house to check their mail and that is pretty much it.  I already went up and brought their trash can in and checked everything out.  It was too early for the mailman, so I need to do that later.  I'll probably go after I post this. That way, after I do that, I can just relax for the rest of the evening. I slept a little better last night, so that was good.  Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight too.


I knew that wouldn't last. :P

Yeah, I totally changed the layout today. I like this one a lot better.  For some reason the links at the top will only let me show four, so I put the Typepad about page and the feed link in the sidebar.  I really like this layout.  The banner picture is from Murrells Inlet South Carolina along the Marshwalk.  My friend and I usually walk along it when we visit the Dead Dog Saloon.  I liked this picture that I took in the evening after our visit.  

I hope to keep this layout for a while.  I can either do a dark background or a light one. I prefer the light one, I think.  What do you think?

In other news, I'm pup sitting.  Wait.... I told you this yesterday! :P  These are two very small dogs, so WHY did I not have any room on my bed last night?! lol  Seriously!  Crazy little pups.  They are good dogs though so that is nice.  I hate to tell their peeps that they are going to be uber spoiled when they get home. :P

I crated them when I did today's workouts.  I didn't want to have to worry about them being underfoot!  They watched me for a bit like I was crazy and then went to sleep. lol  It was kind of hilarious.  I got my workouts done and then took them outside.  I had a delicious lunch with delicious coffee.  Now I'm going to relax in my room with the air conditioner.  I need to run up to my friend's house later and check on the house.  Make sure it's locked tight and everything looks okay.  I'll probably wait until a bit later to do that.  For now, I want to relax.  Well, what I really want is to go to Starbucks and get a cascara latte. lol  I did a Star dash recently with the Starbucks app and I have a free drink on my app. :D  I love star dash times because you can earn a free drink quickly!  

Okay, I'm going to relax for a bit.  I didn't sleep well at all last night because one, it was too hot, and two, I had two heaters on my bed... I mean two dogs on my bed lol  Hopefully we can all get situated tonight and I'll sleep well.  Wish me luck!

PS I added my Pinterest feed to the sidebar but it's not showing up.  Well... if I choose just ONE picture, that will show up, but if I want to show more, nope.  I'll try to get it worked out.  I'll leave it for now.


Goodness!

So, I loaded my lawn mower up in my car today.  That was not fun.  It's not too horribly heavy, but it's awkward.  I filled it with gas before I did so I didn't run out.  I went over to my friend's house.  The one that has been sick.  I mowed his lawn for him.  I know he still isn't feeling well, so I wanted to help him out.  I did his entire lawn.  I then came home and did my front lawn and the driveway around where my car usually sits.  I parked it elsewhere and moved it back afterwards.  I came in and cooled down and then did my workouts. It was ab day so that was fun.  Yikes! LOL!  I got those done and then relaxed a bit before fixing some lunch.  Lunch was delicious.  

I went out and spent some time on my front porch.  It was feeling nice outside today.  A friend called later and asked if I wanted to ride with her to have some keys made.  I did.  She just got a jeep and she drove that.  I did NOT like it. So uncomfortable.  Ugh!  I got a serious headache from the bumpiness and the smell from the exhaust.  BLEAH!  I was happy to get home!

Now, I'm going to finish this and then do my French lesson at Duolingo and then probably play Scrabble on my iPod touch.  I love word games! 


Tuesday again...

Well, I didn't get to walk again today!  I had planned to, but there was bad weather.  We had some rain and some thunder storms with lots of lightning.  It wasn't really safe to walk, so we skipped it today.  I'm hoping we get to go tomorrow.  It's been too long!  I would have walked by myself a little later than our regular time, but I ended up cleaning my front porch.  It needed a good cleaning.  I went out to sit for a bit after the storms and realized how badly it needed a good scrub.  I got that done and then came in and put in a load of clothes to wash.  I just put those in the dryer.  Now I just have to wait until they are done and I can put them away.  I did my workouts at my regular time today and then I ran up to my local polling place to vote.  I got a sticker for my bullet journal. lol  :p  Is it sad that the best part of going to vote was getting a sticker? LOL  They were so slow. I was the only one there voting.  No one came in while I was voting and only one lady drove up as I was leaving.  I bet the workers were bored.  

My car did okay up there and back.  It's about half a mile up there.  I would have walked, but it was early afternoon and it was steamy hot out there.  I didn't want to walk as hot as it was.  I was glad that my car did fine.  The check engine light went off, but I know it's not fixed. lol

I may write some pen pal letters tonight.  I haven't decided yet.  I want to keep on top of them so I don't get behind and have to type all my letters!  I am sure most of my pals would prefer me typing since they've seen my handwriting. :P

 


Saturday already?!!

I can't believe that it's Saturday and my last full day here.  I'm going to miss waking up and sitting on my bed looking out at the beautiful ocean view!  I don't want to go home at all!  It's another gorgeous day here, too.  I think we are going to hit a breakfast buffet today.  After that, I'm coming back here to relax and enjoy my last day here.  My friend is going to a few places he wants to go that I don't really care about.  I'll enjoy a day of just relaxing in the room.  We'll probably hit the beach this afternoon as we didn't go down yesterday.  We did take our nightly walk on the beach, though.

As for walking, I did a lot yesterday.  I walked to 17 to a few stores and then came back here.  I stayed in the room a bit and then decided to go to the Pavilion area again.  I went to Bargain Beachwear and got yet another hoodie. :P  I went to I Love Sugar and got some candy.  I walked back and was happy to relax until we went out to dinner!  I was so tired after all that.  I played Pokemon Go while I was out and I actually caught four new ones.  Yeah!  That was cool.  

As of right now, I'm drinking some delicious coffee and waiting on my friend to get up and get ready to go to breakfast.  I am ready for all you can eat BACON! LOL


Thursday already?

I can't believe how fast this week is going.  Yesterday after I posted my blog post, I went walking.  I went from here to the old Pavilion area.  I went in the Gay Dolphin gift cove.  I love that store!  I walked down to a Starbucks and I got a drink and a breakfast sandwich.  I sat in to enjoy and then headed back.  My walk was almost 7 miles.  I came back here and relaxed for a bit. I did my workouts and then rested some more.  We finally got to go to dinner close to 7 pm.  We ate at Red Robin.  We headed down towards Garden City / Murrell's Inlet and got ice cream at Painters.  It was good.  We were going to walk a bit down there, but it started to rain.  We headed back here.

Later, we walked on the beach.  That was nice.  It was overcast most of the day yesterday, but today is looking pretty sunny.  I hope it stays that way.  If I get to walk today, I'd like to get a little sun. :}
