No, still no word. :(

I didn't hear anything again today.  I guess it's going to be next week before I get the shipping notification. I'm not very happy about that.  I have been wanting a 'new' Mac for a while and the extra wait is annoying the hell out of me.  I was so annoyed yesterday when I posted, that I forgot to post the item I got at Goodwill yesterday.  There was a little plastic basket in the office supplies section. It had a ton of stuff in it by the feel and it was marked at $3.  I got it and it was full of stuff.  Well worth more than $3!  There were rulers, single hole punches,crayons, pencils, markers, notepads, index card, and so much more.  Here is the picture of it before I opened it and everything laid out on my bed.  All in all a good haul for $3~

One pair of the scissors is a crafting pair.  It's got the cool cutting edges.  Everything is neat.  The little wooden box had a little glass 'window' in it and I was able to take the paper out and customize it.  It's now a Starbucks box. :p


Last full day. :(

Today is our last full day here.  We check out and head out in the morning unfortunately.  I slept a little longer today than yesterday.  I got up and walked.  I stopped at a McDonald's and got a couple of biscuits for my breakfast and then walked to Starbucks to get a cascara latte.  ^_^  It was delicious.  I was able to get a spot to sit too, so that was great.  I stayed there long enough to drink my coffee and then walked on.  I went to Tuesday Morning.  I got two rolls of cute washi, some stickers, and metal card case holder with JFK on it.  As in JFK airport.  They also had LHA for London's Heathrow airport.  I thought they looked cool.  I got the JFK one because I'm a Kennedy fan.

I left there and headed back towards the hotel.  I found the perfect coffee mug in a King's beachwear store.  I had been looking at coffee cups in every beach store I went in.  This one was cheaper than the others I'd liked and so cute.  Unfortunately it had a chip and a crack. :(  I didn't get it.  It was the only one they had, too.  I was so sad.  I went in several other beachwear stores around there, but none of them had it either.

I finally got back to the room and relaxed a bit.  I went to the lobby and filled my tumbler with coffee.  I went to sit on the balcony for a bit, but then decided to go out on the beach.  I carried my beach towel, my coffee, and my backpack.  I had my trip journal and my bujo in my backpack.  I sat on the beach for a while and just enjoyed it.  I took pictures.  I'll share a few with you here:

It's been a nice little trip, but it's gone by way too fast.  We are heading out for dinner in a bit.  Not sure where we are going to eat yet.  


Back on track

With my internet back, I got back on track today.  I got up and after breakfast, I went for my walk.  I got back from it and had time to relax with a cup of coffee before doing my workouts.  I did those and then played some Pocket Camp  before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I played more Pocket Camp and then worked on straightening up an area of my room that needed it. It's all done and looks so much better!  I wanted to do that.  It's an area that doesn't get used a lot, so it gets cluttered and dusty.  I got rid of the clutter, organized everything, dusted, and swept.  It's nice now.

I was relaxing after that and playing more Pocket Camp when my friend texted and asked if I want to go eat.  I did, so we did.  After we ate, we went to Ollie's and he got some things he needed.  He got me a paper cutter.  I found one that was only twenty dollars.  I was happy.  I've been wanting one like this.  I also got a journal.  I didn't need another journal, but this one is actual graph paper and it's blue with a pencil on the front. Here is my haul from Ollies:

I have the new bigger cutter on my craft cart with my smaller cutter and some sharpies. ^_^ It will be much easier to cut larger stacks of paper with this cutter than my little one.  I've wanted one for a while now and I was happy to see this one in Ollie's!


Friday evening....

Wow, what a day.  I walked on the beach this morning and got splashed by some waves.  I had to come back and put my shorts out to dry. lol  Later, I went walking to 17.  I went to Bargain Beachwear to get a few postcards.  I also got a keychain.  I headed further down 17 and then turned and headed back to Ocean Boulevard.  I got part of the way back and then took my shoes off and walked on the beach back to the hotel.  I came back and relaxed on the balcony a bit.  My friend and I went to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to Tuesday Morning and I got three more rolls of the washi that I liked so much.  I also found some other goodies.  A package of Halloween stickers and some craft tiny clothespins.  After leaving there, we headed to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  That was delicious as always!

Since we were right near the Goodwill, we went there.  I got a MB shirt and a package of full page labels.  I can use them to make my own stickers at home. YAY!  There were twenty left in the box.  I'm pretty sure when you buy a small package of them, they come ten to the pack and they are over $10 a pack!  Crazy!  These were $1 Yes!  We went to the Dollar General that is next door to the Goodwill and got a few things and then headed back down the strip.  There was another Starbucks that I hadn't been to yet, so he swung by there and I went in and got myself a latte. :D  He wanted ice cream, so he stopped at Burky's.  We've eaten at Burky's before.  It's pretty good.  He got ice cream and then we headed down to the road where Market Common was.  We had seen the sign before and looked for it but didn't find it.  We found it tonight!  It was late, so most everything was closed, but at least we found it. :P  It has a lot of high end stores, it seems.

So we then headed back towards the room.  We saw a miniature golf place that looked pretty cool.  We went and one sign said they closed at 10:30, the sign on the building said 11.  The lady said they closed at 10!  It was about 9:32 by then, so we didn't get to play.  Phooey! We headed back here and I did my workouts.  I'm posting this and then I'm going to take my nightly beach walk.  I'm really tired, but I still want to at least walk a little bit. ^_^ 


Friday fun!

Yeah, I actually had a pretty decent day today!  My friend that bailed on my birthday, made up for it today!  She, her hubby, and myself went to Greensboro, North Carolina.  I had a free meal at P.F. Chang's.  It was buy an entree, and get one free.  I asked my friend and her husband if they wanted to go, and they did!  I got a delicious meal of chicken lo mein. It's my favorite thing to order there.  

My friend and I went to Ulta so I could get my free birthday gift.  It was a eye shadow palette valued at $18!  I don't really wear makeup, but if I do, these are my colors, so that is good.  Hubby went to Sur la Table.  We all met back up and went to Battleground avenue.  We went to a Starbucks there.  I'd never been to this particular Starbucks, so that was pretty cool!  The baristas were really nice and friendly, I got a cascara latte, of course!  I was in a star dash, I needed to buy a latte, a frappuccino, and a tea to get 150 stars.  I don't drink tea at all, so that was going to be a problem.  I asked my friends if they would like one or the other.  My friend wanted a frappuccino and her husband wanted tea. I got them to put the money on my card and buy them with that.  I was able to complete the star dash. YAY!  I was happy.  I got a delicious drink, extra stars, and I got to put a new Starbucks location in my tracker. ^_^

We left Greensboro and then came back to town.  Her son wanted to go get something to eat and wash his car, so she and I rode with him to do that. I visited for a while when we got back and then I came home. I did my stretches and now I'm just catching up on my blog and relaxing.  I'm going to crash before too much longer.  It was a good day, but it was also a long one and I'm tired.  Oh! I got to try cotton candy grapes today.  They are AMAZING. Sooooooooooooo good!


Temptations!

Oh the temptation was strong today to go to Starbucks, but I fought the urge.  I will go tomorrow.  I have to, I wrote it in my bullet journal. :p  I Finally got my package today with my passport sized traveler's notebook and my washi and pen.  All are nice.  I'll share a picture later.  I also reworked my regular size TN today.  Both are looking great! 

The wash is mainly purple themed and it's pretty!  The rolls were a lot smaller than I was expecting, but they are still really pretty.  I love actual washi from Asian countries as it's good quality washi.  The butterfly washi and the moon phases washi from the latest set is my favorite.  So pretty!  I really didn't need more washi, but oh well. :P Here is a picture of the beautiful washi if you want to see:

The pen is nice, but it's a ultra fine point ink pen.  I like medium point pens.  This is a bit 'sharper' than I like, but it's a cool pen. It's Tombow brand and it's got black ink and red ink.  I didn't know Tombow made regular pens!


Can I go to bed now?!

It has been a really long day.  I did my workouts earlier, and then I was relaxing for a bit.  I knew I would be going to my friend's house to pick up their pooches.  I'm dog sitting until Wednesday.  They leave in the morning for Wilmington NC.  I am going to taking care of a mini Dachshund and a terrier mix.  They are both cutie pies.  At the moment, they are both asleep.  Shhh :P

My friend, that I am dog sitting for, took me by Starbucks earlier today.  I told her if I was keeping the pups for four days that I needed Starbucks! LOL  I got my wish.  She ran me over there and I got a cascara latte. <3  So delicious. I also got a chocolate chip cookie. :p  I still haven't eaten that.  I'm going to eat it after I post this.  Yum! 

I am going to crash before too much longer.  I'm not going to bed yet, but I am going to relax.  I didn't get to sleep until late last night, so I hope to make up for that today.  I need to get an early start in case the pups decide they want to wake me up! :P

 


Monday and a new camera!

My friend and I got to walk today.  As we were heading for the trail, he showed me his new digital camera.  Then, he asks me if I know what is different about this one from all his others. I didn't.  It's mine! :D  He gave me a cool Fuji digital camera with 30X zoom.  I can't wait to use it at the beach. :)  I took a few test pictures tonight and I'll take more tomorrow.  Here is one from tonight:

Not very exciting, but there you go. :p


Wednesday post time!

I got in my walk today and it was a little bit cooler.  Not much, but enough to help.  I actually slept until my silent alarm on my Fitbit went off.  I went on my walk about an hour earlier than my usual time.  I came home and took my time doing my workouts.  I was able to take a few minutes between them.  That was nice.  I like having the time to relax a bit and not be in a rush.  Sometimes the internet is spotty and the videos don't want to load.  I did that a few times today, but I had the extra time, so I didn't mind.

I got those done. It was core and cardio day. OUCH!  I ate lunch and then got my things together for Starbucks.  I relaxed a little while and then headed over there.  I was able to get my favorite chair immediately.  I had six letters to write and I got them all done.  I was looking forward to playing Pokemon Go while there too, but the servers were down for most of my visit.  They didn't come up until near the end.  I ended up staying a bit longer than I planned.  I almost forgot that I needed to go pick up my prescription at Kmart.  I would have walked there on one of my walks, but they are doing road construction in front of it and it's a mess.  I didn't want to get run over!

I got my prescription and headed home.  I posted to Letters and Lattes and then came here to post.  Now, I'm going to relax for a while before getting in bed and relaxing for the night.  I am hoping to get some reading done tonight. 


Well then....

Yeah, I know.  I haven't posted in days.  Today's walk was so extremely hot.  I came home and did my workouts, ate lunch, and then rested.  Well, only for a few minutes!  A friend came down and got the majority of the front lawn done with their riding lawn mower.  I got out there with the weeder and got the parts they couldn't do.  It took me a lot longer than it should have and when I came in, I looked like I had been in a sprinkler.  I was soaked to the skin with sweat. Yuck!  I needed to do more of the yard, but I was so tired and hot, that I knew I needed to stop and rest.  Plus, it looked like a storm was coming up.  It's getting darker out there now as I type this.  I keep hearing rumbles of thunder.  If I don't get the rest done tonight, I'm not going to worry about it too much.  The front is done and that is what matters.

While I was doing the front, a vehicle pulled up and this guy got out and started talking to me.  I gave him a look!  Turns out, he was a police officer. LOL~  I told him, "I was wondering why weirdos were pulling up in front of my yard." He was really nice and asked a few questions about some things in the neighborhood.  After he left, I finished my weeding.  I thought when they pulled up that they were visiting my stupid neighbors next door.  People go visit them all the time and park in front of my house instead of theirs.  

Anyway!  I am sorry I haven't posted in days.  I just haven't had the energy to get on the computer.  I mean to post everyday.  Sometimes that doesn't happen.  I got two more patches for my messenger bag.  I rearranged the patches on there last night and put on the new ones.  It looks pretty cool.  I posted a picture of it at Letter and Lattes but I'll share it here too:

IMG_20160712_173154052

I'm really loving all the patches.  I might add more in the future.  We'll see how that goes.
