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!


Etsy, glasses, bujo, and more!

I made my first order to Etsy today.  There is a shop that I've had on my favorites for a while because she has cute Starbucks handmade items.  Tonight I ordered two little charms from her.  They look so cute.  I'll talk about them and the shop when I receive them.  Speaking of Starbucks, I got a big sticker from the Starbucks at Tanger Outlet in Myrtle Beach.  I put it on the front of my new bullet journal today. ^___^  I like it!

Glasses, what about them, you ask.  Well, several nights ago I broke my glasses. OH NO!  I love these glasses and went to Zenni Optical to order the same exact pair.  They were sold out of my frames. WAH!!! They DID have them in pink, but I'm not wearing pink glasses. lol I might order a pair for fun, but not for everyday.  I found a plain pair that are similar to the ones I had and I've ordered them.  I just wish they would get here.  I'm wearing the broken ones with some black duct tape on them.  They broke on the part around one of the lenses.  It's not the best fix, but I can wear them if I'm careful until my new ones come.  I plan to buy another pair next month so I'll always have a backup if this happens again.  I have the pair I wore before these, but the lenses are scratched up pretty badly and it gives me a headache to wear them.

I did some more work on my bujo today.  I still haven't added my Pokemon Go trackers and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to.  I can still keep track with the ones in the old bujo.  Plus, if they keep adding more Pokemon to the game, I'll just have to add more and more.  We'll see.  I'm looking for ideas on Pinterest and Google for spreads for the bujo.  I want to add stuff.  

I am doing my current weekly with the day of the week on the left page and the right page mostly blank. I will use it to decorate with souvenirs of my week.  If I don't have any souvenirs to add or stickers or what have you, I'll just do a 'week in review' written narrative.  I think that will be cool.  Here is next week's layout before the ink:

I like this layout because I can add something to the left page on the bottom right and I can put lots of things on the right page.  I think it will work out well for me. ^_^


It finally came today!!!!

It was delayed a day, but it finally got here.  What you ask? Well, my Leuchttrum1917!  I love it.  It's a different from my Moleskine in several ways.  First, the pages are wider, the dots aren't all the way across and down the page, and it's got an index.  I really like it.  I have already set up my current weekly.  I also have my January habit tracker.  I've moved over my Starbucks store tracker, and a few others.  I've added a books read and a order tracker.  I had both of these in the old one but these are for January 1 on.  I still have to move my Pokemon Go trackers.  I left the first fifty pages for trackers.  I started the actual monthlies and weeklies on page 51.  I think that will give me plenty of room for the year and plenty of trackers.  I can also add things in between the monthlies if I want to.

So far I'm really liking it.  The color is so pretty!  I like having the index and the numbered pages.  I have put my key in there and I have my gratitute log, my Munzee tracker, and coffee tracker. :p  I want to add a spread for places my friend and I have stayed in Myrtle Beach.  I had a restaurant tracker in my old bujo, I might add one to this one.  I'm not sure yet.  I'm looking for ideas for new trackers.  I want to track everything. lol

I already love my new bujo.  I took a picture of the front and back of it.  Here is my precious:

 

 

 


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
