It IS Thursday!

So, I had to run out this evening to do an errand.  I decided to turn the radio on in my car.  I have it tuned to the Classical Station. I turned it on and heard Opera.  I turned if off and said, "Opera! It's not Thursday!"  And then it hit me.  Yeah it is. LOL!  This particular station has an opera night on Thursdays.  I guess I didn't have enough coffee today! :P

I got my errands done and came home and had dinner.  I am going to have a cup of coffee after this and hopefully get my letters written.  I feel bad having put it off so long. It makes me want to just keep putting it off, but that isn't fair to my pen pals.  I was very tempted to get Starbucks while I was out, but I was good and didn't go.  Perhaps tomorrow or sometime this weekend.  

I'm still watching Sailor Moon. I'm getting close to the end of Sailor Moon R.  I am ready for S.  Bring me Haruka and Michiru, please! Sailor Pluto was just introduced a few episodes ago.  Chibi Usa is still just Chibi Usa.  I can't remember when she becomes Chibi Moon, but I'm thinking it's probably soon.  I'm enjoying re-watching the series and being able to see the pretty art.  

I watched a bunch earlier today, but I took a break and I've been doing other stuff.  It's not possible to watch subtitled anime and do something else at the same time! I don't want to miss anything.  I think the series gets better and better starting with Sailor Moon S.  The first arc of Sailor Moon Super S is one of my favorites!  

Right now, I am watching Beach TV.  It's a channel from Myrtle Beach that you can stream on the Roku. It's fun seeing familiar places at my favorite place.  It's also giving me some ideas of new places to try on my next visit! ^_^.


It can't be Friday already!?!

If I was at home, it would still be Tuesday! LOL  Time goes faster at the beach, I swear! So, last night we went walked to the Dairy Queen to eat dinner.  I usually get the chicken basket, but I haven't had one of their burgers in forever so I got a bacon burger.  It was good, too!  We walked back to the room.  I sat on the balcony for a bit and then came in and did my workouts.  I did a few things in my room and then headed out for a late night beach walk.  I walked a bit longer than I planned, but it was nice out there.  I PoGo'd while I was walking.  I actually caught a new one but I can't remember at the moment which one.  That was cool!  It's always nice to catch new ones.

After my walk, I came back here and settled in for the night.  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I think the only thing we decided last night was to go up to North Myrtle to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  It's a favorite place to eat while we are here.  I'm looking forward to that.   Their food is delicious.  It's more of a local favorite, so it's even better than a chain or another place that may be similar.  If we get up there before the Tuesday Morning store closes, I want to get some more of the washi I bought the other day.  They had a roll of pretty washi that I got a few rolls of.  I wish I had gotten all they had, but I didn't.  There is something he wanted that he didn't pick up either, so the odds are good I'll get to go back.  Hopefully both the things we want are still there!


Thursday evening....

So, after I posted earlier, we headed out.  We went to Lenny's for a late breakfast.  They have their breakfast food out until 2 pm.  After we ate,  we went to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area and walked on the Boardwalk for a while.  We didn't really go in any of the stores. Afterwards, we rode up Highway 17 a bit.  We went to another Tuesday Morning location.  We headed on up towards North Myrtle Beach and rode from the beginning Ocean Blvd up there all the way to the end at Cherry Grove.  We then headed back this way.  It's a lovely day still.  The sun is still out as Im writing this.  I'm changing my phone so that I can go for a beach walk.  I want to go on an early one like I did yesterday after the storm.  

Here is a few pictures that I took before I sat down.  I took them with my iPod touch, so they might not be as good as if I'd taken them with my phone.

Good morning from Myrtle Beach!

I'm actually posting a bit later than I have been this week. I've been up awhile, but I was doing stuff on my phone and iPod touch and didn't get over to the laptop.  Yes, I've had my coffee. :p I just went out on the balcony and it's beautiful out there today.  It's really sunny and bright and it's nice and warm.  I see a lot of people on the beach and several at the pool.  

I'm ready to go eat, but my friend is still asleep. ~_~;  It's the beach! Sleep at home, dammit!  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I might make today and stay around the hotel day.  Sit on the balcony, walk on the beach, enjoy the day.  It's so nice and pretty and I don't really have anywhere else I need to go to.  Plus, I'm really low on funds and I still have to buy stuff when I get home to make it through the month.  Hopefully I'll be able to do that!  

I'll update later and let you know what I'm doing.  It's so nice today, I should be able to get some great pictures.  Here is one I took when I first went out on the balcony this morning:

One more post today....

It stormed this afternoon after I posted.  It was raining really hard and there was streak lightning.  It was great!  After the storm passed, I went for a walk on the beach.  I found some cool shells.  I came back and relaxed for awhile and then did my daily workouts.  As if that wasn't enough, I went for another walk on the beach! I played Pokemon Go as I walked and I got a lot of Pokemon. I have walked over 22,000 steps today.  I'm hoping I've tired myself out so that I can crash hard tonight.  I want to sleep!  

I am watching Forensic Files on HLN at the moment.  I'll watch it until I go to bed.  I've seen every one of the episodes that they've showed tonight.  Oh well. It's one of those shows that is so good, I don't mind watching it again.  


Hello again from Myrtle Beach.

Yay, I actually slept well last night.  This would be a first night I've slept well in a long time, too.  It was nice.  I probably could have slept longer, but I'm at the beach.  I can sleep more at home! Plus, it's fun doing early morning blog posts.  I certainly don't do that at home. :P

I'm waiting for the coffee maker to brew my coffee.  I dearly miss my Keurig! I would already be drinking a cup by now! It's almost done, so I will have it shortly.  The forecast for today was for 80% rain. I expected to look out this morning and see an overcast sky.  Nope, it's sunny.  Yes, there are some clouds, but it's certainly not raining!

Coffee is now done and delicious. I went and looked out and now it's a lot more overcast, but the sun is still trying to peek through.  I was thinking of walking to the Pavilion area today, but I think I'll do it tomorrow when there is no chance of rain.  I don't want to get stuck in a downpour.

I'd like to fix a snack, but my friend is still asleep.  The microwave might wake him up.  I have a few things in my room I can eat.  I have some granola bars which is what I usually eat at home for breakfast.  They are the Nature Valley Sweet and Salty nut bars in almond.  Delicious!

I'm not sure what our plans are for today.  I think we were going to try and get to the thrift stores we missed yesterday.  My favorite Goodwill down here is the one at North Myrtle and we haven't made it there yet.  I always find something good in that one.  I love that particular one.  I'd love to hit Broadway at the Beach too, but if it's raining, he probably won't want to! I guess I'll update later on what we do end up doing!


Windy Tuesday evening....

I'm sitting on the balcony with the Macbook. It's quite windy out here, too!  We have been gone since earlier today.  We headed out and had breakfast at Lenny's Country Kitchen.  They have a wonderful buffet.  We had the entire place to ourselves.  No, really!  One other couple came in later after we'd been there a long time.  It was yummy.  We then went to check out some thrift stores.  We went to three Goowills and my friend went to several pawn shops.  We also went by a area that has a Cookout  and a Starbucks side by side.  He went to Cookout and while he was in the drive thru line, I walked to Starbucks! :D  The baristas were really friendly and the service was great.  I had two free drinks on my card, so I used one and got a venti cascara latte. So good!

I only found one thing to buy today.  It was just a pair of shorts in one of the Goodwill stores.  There was a sign that I almost bought that said, "Cafe Au Lait" Which is coffee with milk in French. ^_^  I was giggling in the store that I could read it. Yeah, I'm a silly. :p  Anyway, I didn't get it.  We have one more Goodwill that we go to down here, but by that time, we were really tired and hungry.  We went to Red Robin for dinner and then came back here to the room.  We are now sitting on the balcony and my friend is trying out the camera he bought.  That is another reason we came back.  He wanted to play with his new 'toy'. ;P

I'm charging my phone at the moment as it got pretty low while we were out.  The Red Robin is a Pokestop, so I was hitting it all during our meal. That was fun and easy too!  I am going for a beach walk later.  I still need to do my workouts and I'll get those in a bit later.  For now, I'm just going to sit here and enjoy this nice ocean breeze and look out at the beautiful ocean. 


Tuesday at the beach.

I'm up early.  Phooey.  I got woken up and now I'm up for the day.  I figured I'd go ahead and do a blog post.  I'm still half asleep, so bear with me. lol I am drinking my first cup of coffee, so that might help.

We went out last night and headed to Murrill's Inlet to the Dead Dog Saloon.  The food was excellent as usual!  I got my regular grilled chicken sandwich.  I add provolone, bacon, and bbq sauce to it.  So yum!  They bring you hush puppies to eat while you wait for your food and they are delicious too.  After we left there, we went to Food Lion and picked up a few things for the room.I went for a nice walk on the beach and played Pokemon Go for a bit.  I came back and watched Forensic Files until I tried to go to bed.  I'm hoping for a full 8 hours sleep tonight.  I doubt I'll get it, but it would be lovely!

I'm probably going to walk to the Pavilion area today.  I'm not sure yet.  It depends on just how hot it is out there.  I want to go to the Gay Dolphin and I'd also like to go to the Starbucks that is up that way.  I still haven't made it to a Starbucks while here. Ahhhh!


First full day so far....

So, I told you in my earlier post that I might post again today.  Well, I'm posting!  I wanted to tell you about my day up until now.  I ate leftover pizza this morning and had three cups of coffee!  My friend and I sat on the balcony for a while just enjoying the view.  I decided after a bit to go out.  He wasn't ready to go yet, so I went out and walked.  I went to Big Lots, Dollar General, and several different beachwear stores.  All are having good end of the season sales.  I got two NICE t-shirts in the Bargain Beachwear (My favorite beachwear shops) for $10!  I thought that was a great deal.  One is the an exact match to one I got in June but in a different color.  It's red.  The other shirt I got today is blue.  Both are pretty.  

I also found myself a really nice heavy duty coffee mug in another beachwear store.  I can't remember which one at the moment. I always bring my bestie a present from the beach that is something to do with turtles.  It's getting harder and harder to find something different to carry her.  I found something though.  I won't mention it in case she reads this. :p

In that store, I found a pink long tank that I bought half off of the sale price, I think I paid $4 for it  I will use it as a beach cover up and it can also be a good workout shirt for at home.  I went in soooo many beachwear shops.  It's a nice diversion and it's usually nice and cool in them!

I came back here and I have my phone charging.  It went down to 11% while I was out. Oops!  I forgot that it wasn't fully charged when I left the room.  It's charging now and hopefully it will be pretty close to full when we go out tonight.  I am not sure where exactly we are going.  He mentioned perhaps the Dead Dog Saloon as we both love it.  We had planned to do that tomorrow night, but neither of us like the guy who is performing tomorrow night.  They have live music at the restaurant.

So, I may update again later tonight and I may just do it tomorrow. We'll see.  OH! I did my workouts this afternoon.  It was cardio.  WAH!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL  I did them though.  After I post this, I'm going to do my French lesson with Duolingo and then wait to see what we are going to do tonight.  I took a picture with Photobooth of the ocean. I don't think it will look as good as a picture from my phone, but I'll share it here:

Okay, not great, but it will do for now. :p


Early mornings at the beach!

So, I'm up.  I actually slept okay last night. Not great, but a lot better than the last two nights!  I had a hard time getting comfortable on the bed.  I hate beds away from home. I finally did get to sleep.  I got woken up a few times throughout the night, but luckily, I was able to go right back to sleep.  I know I was really tired!

I went out on the balcony to take a picture to share.  I'll share more in other posts as I'm more awake and with it. lol  I'm not sure what I'm doing today.  I might be walking to the Pavilion area, or I may save it for another day.  Since it's a holiday, I'll probably hold off on that! :P

Here is a picture I took of the beach this morning 20170904_094506

A gorgeous day here!  I will tell you how tired I was this morning.  OH! Back story! LOL  So, I find that the room has coffee makers.  Great!  I also see no coffee.  Umm... so, I go ask at the desk.  They don't provide coffee.  WHAT?????  If you know me, that won't do!  I look up groceries stores nearby on Google maps.  I see that there is a Food Lion one mile away.  My friend that drove all the way down here doesn't want to drive back out.  In fact, he was going to order us pizza for dinner!  So, I told him what I wanted and said I'd walk to the Food Lion.  I got there and got some of these Maxwell House things that are already in a filter.  I figured if there were any I didn't use, I'd just tear open the filters and put it in with my coffee at home.  I use a re-usable filter with my Keurig, so I just usually buy ground coffee at home.  So,, I walked two miles round trip just to get coffee! LOL!  The pizza arrived while I was on the way back, but it was still warm when I got here.  I crashed with it on the balcony and ate a few slices.  I then waited a bit ot have more. I wanted them all then, but I was so hot.

So, that is the backstory of the coffee! So, this morning, I get ready to make coffee!  I had filled it with water last night so that would be ready to go.  I turn it on and nothing happens.  Me:????  OH! I helps if you plug it in! :P  I do that and it starts going and I realize that it's clear.  Yes, I forgot to put the filter pack in. LOL  I had to turn it off, waiti until it finished a few drips and refill with water and put the filter in.  I finally have my coffee now so I should be okay for a while! :D Since I had to walk all that way to Food Lion to get coffee, I grabbed a bottle of that one touch latte while I was in there.  It makes it so yum!

I may post again tonight about my day.  We'll see.  I'm not even sure what I'm doing yet.  I want to get out my bullet journal and work on it a bit.  I'm not sure when my friend will wake up  He may want to go have breakfast.  We ate at a place on our last day here in June and it has a really good breakfast buffet..  It's Lenny's Country Kitchen.  I told him that we needed to go early so we could see Carl and Homer, too! :p
