Moleskine Feed

Phooey on yooey.....

Yeah, I'm not really wanting to post tonight either, but I didn't post yesterday, so I have to post at least a semi-decent post today.  I got in my walk.  It was a little colder, but not too bad, yet.  I got home and had time to relax a little bit before doing my workouts.  I did those and then cooled off and got dressed for going back out.  A friend picked me up and we went to eat.  We haven't been to this place in a long time, so that was nice.  We ate and then he needed to run by one other place and then he dropped me home.

I haven't done much of anything since I got home.  I have read on Not Always Right, I watched an episode or two of Unsolved Mysteries, and I played some Pocket Camp.  I'm really wanting to just go to bed.  I still have my French lesson to do.  After that, I might just crash.  Oh, I just remembered I have a load of clothes in the washer.  I need to toss those in the dryer. I  may not worry about actually getting them out of the dryer tonight.  As long as I get them dry, I can always fluff them tomorrow before getting them out.

My new 2018 Moleskine daily journal came today. It's Peanuts themed again  It's orange this year with blue trim.  The printing on the front and the comics inside the front and back cover are blue.  The ribbon and the elastic band are both blue, too.  It's pretty.  Here is a picture from the Moleskine website:

I like it.  Last years was yellow and instead of the smooth cover like this one is, it was rough.  This one is like every other Moleskine notebook I've ever had.  I prefer the smooth cover.  I love the blue trim on it!  


Friday again...

So, yeah, it's Friday and a brand new month too.  I walked today and then came home and went to the gas station.  I got gas and then went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials.  I then went to Food Lion and bought way too many groceries. :p  I do have plenty of goodies though.  The granola bars I usually buy were on sale AND they started stocking the store brand version of them!  I got some of the regular ones and got some of the store brand ones. If they are just as good, I'll get those.  They were 1.50.  Not bad at all! I just hope they taste the same or close.

I just now did my stretching.  I wasn't really putting it off, I just have been so busy.   After groceries, I came home and fixed lunch after putting away all those groceries.  My store had water on sale, but they didn't have any.  I went to another location of this grocery store and they didn't have any on the shelf either.  I asked, and they had some!  They brought out a pallet of them and I got five.  They were 24 packs for 1.99. BUT  They were the special 28 bottle packs.  So, I got twenty extra bottles of water by buying five cases.  Yay!  While I waited for them to bring some out, I saw that their brand apple juice was on sale for .95.  I got two of those, too!  I love apple juice.  It's one of those things I love to have in the house but never think of when I'm in the store.

After leaving there, I ran over to Office Max to get way expensive printer ink!  I also picked up a box of their brand blue ball point pens.  I got a box some time ago and I absolutely LOVE these pens. I figured while I was there, I'd grab another box  They write so nicely.  I left there and was really close to Starbucks, but I didn't go.  I just came on home!  I did some things here and then it was time for dinner.  I ordered Chinese and went to CVS on the way.  I got some holiday cards and a few other things and then picked up my food.  I loooove tofu so that is what I got.  They fix it so delicious there!  I've been wanting some of their food for awhile  

I wrote out and paid all my bills.  After those and getting the things I needed, I'm totally broke.  Oh well.  I have plenty of groceries and I've had my one eat out meal for this month.  I'm good!  I also ordered my journal for 2018.  Every year I get a Moleskine for my journal for the year. I get a daily one that I use and it's Peanuts.  This  will be my fifth one.  The first year was a small one, the last three were the larger ones that are daily.  The first one was white, then there was another white one, the year after that was blue, this years is yellow and next years is orange/reddish.  I don't know why they keep changing the colors.  Oh well.  They are cute and I love Snoopy. ^_^

I'm not sleeping well at all lately, so I'm hoping to sleep well tonight.  Fingers crossed!


Working on the Bullet Journal

Today I've been working on my bujo.  I have my October habit tracker done. ^^; Yes, I'm that much ahead. lol  I also did a two page beach memories spread.  I think it turned out nicely.  Here it is:

The lighting in my house sucks!  I need to start taking all my bujo pictures outside in natural light!  At the beach, I did a bullet journal video that I need to upload to my YouTube channel.  I actually shared my bujo on the beach. :)


A real post!

Yes, I thought I'd make a real post today.  It is Saturday and it's really nice here today.  After my workouts, and lunch, I went to the park.  I wanted to Pokemon Go a bit.  I was running really low on Pokeballs, so I hit a bunch of stops.  I also walked around in the park a bit.  I made a new bujo video too!  I think this one is better than the one I did before.  I am uploading it now.  I have to review it and make sure it looks okay.  If so, I'll share it.  My new Moleskine is now completely set up and ready to go!  I can't wait to use it.

Yesterday, my friend and I went for a walk .  As we were heading towards the end of our walk, I spotted some beautiful daffodils.  I just had to pick a few to carry home.  All my daffs have already bloomed and gone for this year.  These are pretty cool.  There are three flowers on each stalk.  I took this picture of them:

Aren't they beautiful?  They now are on my desk making it look prettier.  After I finish this post, I'm going to relax for a bit until dinner time. I haven't decided what I want to fix for dinner yet.  Something good, I hope!  


Layouts!

I'm looking online for inspiration for weekly layouts for my new bujo.  I want to do a two page spread of two weeks.  I have been doing a two page, one week spread.  I want this bujo to last a long time as I've spent a lot of time setting it up so far.  I've found several different layouts that I like.  I just have to choose one and use it!  I have a couple that I'm going back and forth between.  I might do one for one side and the other for the other.  That way I can see them side by side and see how they work for me.  

In other news, I went for a walk tonight.  I just got home a few minutes ago.  My friend needed to run by a store and I went with him. Then he wanted to eat dinner, and it was time for my dinner!  We went to Cici's.   I probably ate a little more than I should have, but it was good!  I am now home and relaxing.  I'm going to put those two spreads in my bujo and see which one I like the best.  I'll be sure to share them soon. :)


Letters, lattes, and bullet journals!

I replied to my latest batch of pen pal letters today.  I went by Starbucks and got a Cascara latte and brought it home and enjoyed it while writing letters.  It's a good thing I decided not to go in and write letters today.  The place was packed and there was no where to sit!  I brought my delicious latte home and wrote out the letters that I had.  I decided to run to the post office so that I wouldn't have to fight for a parking spot tomorrow.  I mailed off the letters and then checked my box to find six more!  I mailed off five and came home with six!  That is pretty cool.

I also worked on my bullet journals today.  Both my current one and the new one.  I added a pretty blue ribbon to the new one and I did next week's layout for the current one.  Wait... I did that yesterday?  Oh well, it was done this weekend! In any case, I'm ready for the new week and I also have my new bujo completely set up except for one two page spread.  I'm still trying to decide what I want that spread to be!


Monday again?

Yes, it's Monday again.  I haven't done a lot today as I'm still a bit sick.  It was cold today and it rained some too.  I just stayed in with my tissues! lol  I hope to knock this mess out soon.  I despise to be sick.  I have been doing my daily workouts even though I've been sick.  I also created a new page (Well two page spread) in my new bujo today of Adventure Time quotes!  I can't draw, so I took a picture of Finn and Jake and put it under the page and traced them.  I can't even trace all that great, but I like the results.  I colored in Jake with a yellow colored pencil and I colored in Finn's shirt and shorts with two different blue pencils.  At the top of the other page, I put a little picture (also traced) of Jake.  I was going to do an episode tracker, but there are so many!  I thought a quote one would be cool and I wanted the little 'drawings'.  

 


Sunday is almost over!

I have been busy all day.  I just realized that it was almost 10 pm and I haven't posted to my blog today.  I am going to do that and then wash my hair and crash.  I have a bit of a cold coming on and that sucks.  My nose has been runny all day. I went to the store to pick up a few things I needed and I got some tissues while there.  I'm going to need them!

I finished the setup on my Moleskine bullet journal.  It's looking great!  I am working on a video and hope to have it ready soon.  I made one earlier, but I didn't like the quality so I did another.  I hope this one is better.  I set up this coming week in my current bujo.  It's shiny!  Here is that one:

Bullet Journaling

I decided to give my Moleskine dotted journal one more try for Bullet journaling.  I had done a few pages in it before but one of my pens bled even though I had done a pen test.  I went back and checked and that particular pen had bled on the test page too! I decided to re-do the first few pages and see how it went.  I'm loving it!  I want to take a quick video as soon as it's all set up and ready to go.  I'm going to use my current Bujo until the end of this month and then start my new Bujo for April.  I already have my key, two Pokemon trackers, a book tracker, an expense tracker, a order tracker, and I have printed out some things to put in there.  I am going to leave a few pages for more trackers and then start the April pages.  I love how it looks so far and can't wait to share it with you.  I hope to get that done tomorrow. I worked a long time on it today and I have a bit more to do and then I'll have it ready to share.  So far, it's wonderful.  I think I'm going to love the dots!
