No Starbucks today. :p

No, I didn't make it four days in a row at Starbucks. lol  I will get back over there eventually.  I have two free drinks loaded to my card at the moment. I love Star Dashes!  I also will get a free birthday drink this month as it's my birthday month. Yay!  Today I was so totally sleepy. I DID NOT want to get out of bed! I also didn't want to do my workouts.  I did both!  I got out of bed and took the linens off to wash them.  I always do this on Sunday, but it also kept me from climbing back in! :P

I got my workouts done.  I usually open Youtube on my tablet and then cast the videos to my Roku box.  It was being snarky today and I had to do the first three videos on my laptop.  The tablet screen is just too small!  I finally got the casting to work and did the last two on the television screen.  That is much easier as it's much easier to see and the sound is a lot better!  After doing those, I rested for a few minutes and then was working on my bullet journal.  I got up to fix lunch and then came back to my bujo.  I spent some time on the porch this afternoon with some coffee.  That was nice!

I was one day seven of a Pokemon Go streak.  If you have a seven day streak of hitting Pokestops, you get extra goodies.  I went out long enough to do that and I went to Dollar General while out and picked up a few things I needed.  I was enjoying Unsolved Mysteries and went to watch yet another episode when I found out that I was done! :(  All the original ones with Robert Stack have been watched.  Hopefully they'll add more soon.  I was really loving watching it.  

In other news, my bed linen is freshly laundered and back on the bed.  My hair is washed and drying at the moment.  All I have to do now is relax until bedtime.  I may do some more work on my bujo after typing this.  I did my French lesson while on the porch. :)


Duolingo tinycards!

I was doing something online and saw someone mention the flashcards from Duolingo.  I've been doing Duolingo for a long time now and didn't know about this feature.  I went and used my Google-fu and found this:

Duolingo French cards

Very cool resource.  I can use it for practice along with my regular lessons.  I'm enjoying it.  You can even make your own flashcards! How cool is that?  I might have to do that with all the hard words that I'm putting in my notebook. 


I'm so tired.

It has been a long day!  I got in my workouts.  It was total body day.  Ouch! LOL  Also, my friend and I went for a walk.  I'm now home and I'm crashed on my bed with the Macbook.  I am going to watch some television and then either take a bath to soak my sore bones, or just lay here and watch tv until bed time! LOL!

I used my notebook today while doing my French lesson.  I put in the words that seemed to be more difficult for me.  I also put in some  sentences.  I think it will be a good resource.  I made a little page to start out the notebook. Bujo style, too. :p

Okay, so here is the notebook with the pen in the front and a view of one of the inside pages.  I think this will be perfect for my French learning.  I looked up the info inside and the codes are for  http://www.stkrit.com  It's probably something I won't use for this notebook, but I might use for something else.  It looks pretty neat!  Here is the notebook cover and the inside:

More about French

I am wanting to start a notebook for my French studies.  I can't decide if I want to do a bullet journal type notebook or just a plain notebook.  I think it would be good to write down words and their translations that I have problems with when I do my lessons.  Writing them down would also let me review things when I'm not online.  I just think it would be helpful to have the extra notes.  I am down to several different notebooks.  Which do I choose?

I'm thinking the orange ring bound one on the bottom left would be the best.  I could lay it either way and it also has a rubber thing around the front where I could store a pen.  It's actually a "Markings" notebook by C.R. Gibson and it came with three codes to use to transfer a page to the web.  I probably would really use that for French, though.  I got in some time back at Target because I thought it was cool.  I tend to buy a lot of notebooks and then never use them. :P  You should see my box of regular full size page notebooks that I have.
