Wednesday catch up!

Since I didn't post a real post last night and I promised a real one today, I decided to do it early!  I am still very tired today.  I didn't sleep well again last night.  I am hoping to catch up on some tonight, but I probably won't.  Considering that my friend and I are leaving for the beach in the morning.  I never sleep well the night before a trip.  I sleep even less knowing I have to get up earlier than my usual time. :p  

So, yesterday I walked, but I didn't do my workouts.  I would have, but there were a lot of moves that would hurt my foot.  My foot still hurts a lot.  Walking is bad, but it isn't as bad as some of the workouts.  I skipped my workouts  I decided since I won't be able to do any until I get back, I'm just skipping them until Monday.  I plan to eat and enjoy everything possible this weekend, because Monday, I plan to finally get on track!  I want to reach my goal weight!  Since I'll be at the beach this weekend, I plan to enjoy the food. :p

I washed clothes last night and packed my suitcase.  My clothes are all ready, but my other suitcase is still empty. I carry two small suitcases to the beach.  One has my clothes, the other has my electronics, notebooks, bujo, etc.  I also carry my messenager bag, but I carry it up front in the car with me.  I carry my phone, wallet, trip journal, and other things in it.  I also carry a Starbucks tumbler for coffee!  I picked one of of my more recent ones that I haven't used much.  

I was thinking of leaving the laptop at home, but I got some electrical tape and was able to fix the cord.  It's not a permanent fix, but it is working fine at the moment.  I had some other tape on it and I could hear it sparking.  I put the electrical tape on and it's not sparking and it is charging well. ^_^  I really want to be able to use my Macbook!  I have to do nice blog posts at the beach, right?

Today I walked and it was sunny and in the seventies!  Yesterday it was around fifty.  I was able to walk in short sleeves today.  That was weird.  I am ready for this same weather but with an ocean view.  I hope to take a lot of pictures and you know I'll share some after I get home.  I'll also try to share one a day while there.  I plan to get to the Starbucks at North Myrtle.  I have three free drinks on there and I got my notification today that I'm gold for another year.  I already knew that. :p It's nice to see it though. :D

I have such a weird tan line from winter walking!  I wear a pair of long fitness capris so I have a nice tan on my calves but from half way up and past my knee, I have none. LOL  It looks so weird and makes me self conscious.  I plan to get some just above the knee shorts to wear on my walks.  I hope to get grey ones as all the black ones I've worn in the past all get bleached out from the sun.  Grey ones would too, but it wouldn't be so noticeable. I have never tanned in my life until I started walking!  It's so weird.

Ah, I think I totally made up for that short post last night.  I was just so tired.  I am also currently reading a true crime book by Ann Rule that I hadn't read before.  It's so good!  I am carrying my Kindle with me to the beach, and I will probably finish it there.  I'm also still reading the book on coffee.


Sunny Saturday

Yes, it was sunny today and it was nice.  It wasn't cold, but it wasn't really warm either.  It was in the low fifties.  Not bad at all for walking.  I got in a good walk.  It was not windy like it was yesterday.  I stopped at the pharmacy on my walk but my prescription wasn't ready, so I had to go back later.  I came home from my walk and did my workouts, I had lunch, and then headed to the pharmacy.  I got my prescriptions and then went to the post office.  I had planned to write pen pal letters tonight, so I wanted to check my box and see if I had any new ones.  I did!  

I came home and then realized I wanted some coffee. I wanted a latte, and I didn't want to drive all the way over to Starbucks, so I thought I'd give the coffee drinks at Sheetz a try.  I went and ordered a caramel latte. It was pretty tasty. Not as good as Starbucks by a long shot, but not bad.  I got home and put away some laundry that I washed yesterday.  I then realized I needed a few things from the grocery store.  I had gone to the store last night and got my groceries, but I forgot to pick up a few things.  I went and got those and then came back home.  I wrote quite a few pen pal letters and I'll get those in envelopes and ready to go tomorrow. I'll drop them in a box along my walk.  I don't usually walk as far as the post office anymore, so I figured I'd check my box today.  I'll mail the ones I wrote tonight and I may go to Starbucks tomorrow to write the ones that came today or I may wait and go one day with week.  I may just go get a latte and come home and do them.  Who knows!?

I need to get up and fix dinner, I'm just being lazy and not wanting to move at the moment.  I have plenty of goodies to choose from since I've been grocery shopping. I just have to decide what I want to fix!  I have lots of good frozen dinners, sandwich stuff, and other things.  I have almost too much to choose from! :p  I'll figure out something and then fix that.  I'll then get my letters ready to go for tomorrow. I don't have any other plans for tonight except to read and play some Pocket Camp!  I finished the first half of the event that is going on, so I'm glad of that.  I am not sure when the second half starts, but it's probably soon!  


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!


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!


Friday, again.

So, it's Friday again.  What did I do today?  Well, my usual routine.  I got up and went for my walk.  I came home and relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.  I felt like I was coming down with something this morning and I didn't feel too great, but I went for my walk anyway.  I hope I can sleep off whatever it is.  I don't feel too bad this evening, but I still don't feel right.

I haven't done much today, I've just been resting.  I want to quickly shake off whatever this is and get back to normal.  I took a hot bath that was so nice.  I also put away a load of laundry.  I was going out after my walk, but I never got out of the house again.  Well, once, but that was just to the front porch to get my mail in!  I ordered something on ebay earlier this week.  Two different orders.  This one was a offbeat one.  What is it, you ask?  Well, it's a set of five Monopoly irons! LOL  The iron is my playing piece and they discontinued it.  I still have sets with irons in them, but if I get newer sets, I'll have some irons to add to them.  I am also thinking of making a charm bracelet and I thought I'd use one of the irons on it. ^_^

The other item I got on ebay was something Starbucks related!  It's coming from China, so it may be a while before it gets here.  The estimated shipping is mid March to the 24th of April!  I am hoping it comes a lot quicker.  It probably will.  I will do a post of it when I get it.  I think I'm going to love it!

I signed up for Kindle Unlimited last night.  So far, so good.  I was able to borrow the rest of the Zombie series that I was reading.  As soon as I finish my current read, I'll get to those.  After that, I'll look to see what other books are offered.  So far it's good, but I am not sure that a lot of the stuff I like will be available.  I love Zombie fiction, so there will probably get a lot of that.  OOH! That reminds me.  I read the first book in a set a few years back and I loved it. I wonder if they have the second book for borrowing?  I'll have to check.  I just checked.  It's there! Yay!


Two walks today?

Yes, I did!  I went on my usual walk and then came home and relaxed a bit because I knew my friend was coming to pick me up for walk number two!  We went down to the Riverwalk trail and walked.  Afterwards, we got some food and then I came home and did my workouts.  I am tired! I am hoping to sleep really well tonight!  

I am going to post this and then play some Pocket Camp and read more on the book I'm currently on.  It's a true crime book about the 'Pizza bomber' It's pretty interesting.  It's funny, I haven't heard about this case before I found the ebook at the library.  After I finish it, I'm not sure what I'm going to read next.  I am still thinking of giving Kindle Unlimited a try.  I just need to see what books are available.  I guess since it's free for thirty days, now would be a good time. :P  I'll let you know how I like it.

 


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!

 


Phooey!

So, I finished book two of the zombie series today and was hoping to get the next one.  Sadly it isn't available for Prime users, but it is under the Kindle unlimited. I am seriously thinking of giving the Kindle unlimited a trial.  I have not been thrilled with Prime.  The shipping has been bad and there are not a lot of books to choose from.  

I walked today even though it was overcast and had rained.  It rained a bit during my walk, but it wasn't too bad.  I only had to use the umbrella for a bit.  I got home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then I read the rest of the book.  It was good and had a cliff hanger ending, so I really want to read the rest of the series!  I went to the library to see if they had it as a ebook to borrow, but alas, no.  I did find two books that looked interesting and I've borrowed those.  One is about the Borden murders.  As in Lizzie Borden's father and stepmother.  I think that will be a good read. I am going to check in with Pocket Camp and then start on my new book.  I think the weather is supposed to be clear tomorrow or at least no rain.  Yay!  It makes walking so much easier.  


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!
