Makeup post?

Well, I certainly do have to make up for last night's post.  I had sat down at the computer to post to Typepad.  I had a call from a friend that had an emergency and needed me to go with them.  After they picked me up, the emergency was over and they wanted to go get themselves some food.  The emergency was that my friend had been in a separate vehicle from her mom in Greensboro, NC and some how got back to Danville without her!  As soon as we headed out to look for her mother, she passed us! LOL!  We went and picked her up and I rode with them to get them some food.  They got me a frappe at McDonald's.  Yum.

So, I was out and couldn't get home in time to post about my day yesterday, so I did the quick post from my phone and posted the cute picture of Goldie and I from Animal Crossing Pocket Camp! ^_^  I had two walks yesterday.  The second one was a rainy one.  The first was sunny and hot!  My friend wanted to walk on the trail in Martinsville, so we went and did that.  It started raining as soon as we got out of the car!  We walked anyway. 

I am probably not going to get in two walks today.  I got in my regular one and I came home and did my workouts.  I also mowed the front yard. As of now, I'm in my room sitting with the air conditioning on and the fan! LOL!  It was in the nineties out there today and it felt like it, too!  I just want to sit in the cool air and enjoy the rest of my day.   


Fitbit failures and a few other things!

So, today, all was well. I was wearing my new Fitbit and things were fine.  I had synced when I was at a certain point and went to sync again and nothing.  I reset my Fitbit, I did everything.  It didn't recognize it at all.  Luckily, I hadn't recycled the old Charge 2 so I set it up at a 'new' Fitbit.  I lost about two hundred steps, but it could have been worse!  After I got the old one set up and synced, I tried to do the new one and it wouldn't find it at all.  SO WEIRD. So, I'm back to my second one and I guess that is where I'll stay.  I did let Fitbit support know via Twitter.  I swear they are going to think I'm a nut.  I keep getting defective devices.  Oh well, the old one works good enough and I'm happy that I didn't lose a whole days steps as they would have sucked!

My Macbook charger came today. YAY! I can now charge my Macbook without worrying about burning the house down. LOL  I tried it and it worked just fine.  I also got a cool new strap for my Fitbit. It's pink with teal in the holes.  It isn't as dark pink as I thought it would be, but it's still pretty. I'm going to wear it tonight and see how I like it.  The material is nice and comfy!  Now if I can just keep this Fitbit Charge 2 running and syncing! :p

I just synced it and at first it wasn't doing it and I was about to cry on you. lol Luckily it synced and all is well!  My friend and I were going to walk tonight, but it's been storming here for a while.  I'm not sure if he'll still want to walk  If it clears off, perhaps.  I don't mind either way.  I did pretty well on my regular walk today and I got my workouts in.  If I don't want tonight, I won't be too disappointed.  I WOULD love to go to Starbucks though.  I haven't been at all this month. !!!!!


Two walks are better than one!

Yes, I got in two walks again today!  My Fitbit did pretty well.  It's not as many steps as my One had, but it's still pretty good.  I think I'm pretty much used to it by now.  Plus, this one does seem to do better so I'm happy with it.  I got in my regular walk today.  I came home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then waited for my friend.  We walked down at the trail again.  We walked the same walk we did last night.  It was pretty nice.  I even got to pet and love on a Golden Doodle. ^_^ So cute!  

I only took one picture today on the trail. I thought I'd share it with you.  There are such pretty views along the trail.  I love seeing the river peeking through the trees!

Update perhaps?

Well, I walked tonight with the new Fitbit Charge 2 and I am pretty sure it's working a lot better than the old one.  I think my steps were pretty accurate.  I'll see tomorrow on my regular walk.  That is the truest test.  I think it's going to work out well. It seems to keep up with my steps and I didn't see it stopping at all.  I am anxious to go on tomorrow's walk and see how the steps / accuracy is! ^_^  I took a couple of pictures on the trail, enjoy!

Tuesday thoughts...

So, I'm posting early today so I don't do like I did last night!  I walked further today on my walk since I needed to go to the post office.  I picked up my piece of mail. It was a pen pal letter that needed postage.  They considered it a package and not a letter because it felt like it was too thick to be just a letter.  It  WAS just a letter.  UGH.  I paid the $2.50 to get it and I also got five international stamps.  I then headed on my way back home.  I didn't do my workouts when I got here as I was extremely hot and very tired.  I'll either do them later tonight or I may skip them today.  Why?  Well, I am going for another walk later, so I might not get a chance to do them.  I am not sure exactly when we are going to walk, but we will sometime.

I got my replacement piece for my Fitbit Charge 2 today.  I charged the battery to full and I'm wearing it now.  I already have a good feeling about this one. It's going to count steps, distance, and everything else correctly!  It charged easily and it's syncing well, too.  I'm quite pleased.  I will see how it tracks on tonights walk and tomorrow's too.  My usual daily walk is the best test for it.

When I went to the post office, luckily, the nice lady was working.  There is a guy that works the counter sometimes and I DO NOT like him.  I was so happy to see her and not him.  He is a pain in the butt and acts like an ass!  The lady that waited on me today is always sweet as she can be.  Her name is Queen and she is certainly as nice as one!  I also had to stop to get my prescription.  The guy at the pharmacy kept putting my birthdate in wrong and he was cracking us both up.  He tried to put in that I was born in the twenties at one point! LOL!  It was hilarious.  I got my script and headed home.  It was the first good experience I've had at this pharmacy since having to switch to it after Kmart closed.

I am not sure when my friend will come for us to walk.  I hope it's not too long.  I have to put my socks and shoes on.  I also have to put my bra back on and I'm not doing that until I absolutely have to! LOL!  I finished the first Oz book on my walk today and I'm just getting started on the second one.  The second one has Jack Pumpkinhead in it so I'm quite happy! ^_^


Meh

I want to go to bed. I also want to eat.  I think I'll just get in bed and read.  I don't know.  It's been one of those days!  I had to run an errand downtown, so I stopped by the post office.  I had five letters.  This is good, but I haven't replied to the ones I had already. ^^;  AND  I had two yellow slips in my box that I need to go to counter for.  The counter is only open until 3pm.  I'll have to make another trip tomorrow and hope my poor old broken down car makes it!

I SHOULD get my replacement part for my Fitbit tomorrow.  I hope so.  I am hoping to find it tracks better. 


I'm off to Oz!

On today's walk, I finished the Anne books.  I love that series so much.  I wish Lucy Maud Montgomery had written more books in the series or at least a follow up about ten years after Rilla of Ingleside.  Oh well.  I enjoyed listening to them again.  Tomorrow, I start on the wonderful Oz books!  I downloaded all the official L. Frank Baum ones from Librovox.org and I will start with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz tomorrow. I only loaded the first 8 or so.  I'll load the rest after listening to the first four or five.  This should keep me going for a while!  I love all the characters in the Oz books.  My favorites being The Woozy, Jack Pumpkinhead, Scraps, and more. ^___^ I'll be visiting old friends.

My walk today was perfectly great weather wise.  It didn't rain at all.  Yay! It did rain later in the afternoon, but it wasn't for very long.  I got everything done on my regular schedule today.  I have been using my coffee grinder each time I make a cup of coffee.  I finally got the right combo of how much to use and which way to grind it.  It's so delicious and it smells so good when and after I grind it!  

My replacement for my Fitbit was supposed to be delivered tomorrow, and now it's saying Tuesday! :(  I really wish it would get here. I'm hoping it tracks steps better.  I've noticed that this one is doing a little better, but it's still not as accurate ss it should be.  It tracks heart rate, and sometimes it says I don't have any! LOL  I'll look at it and says, "My Fitbit thinks I'm dead!" lol  I am hoping that all the kinks will be worked out in the new one they send.  

I ordered a charger for my Macbook on Thursday but they haven't shipped it yet. Phooey!  I also ordered one other band for my Fitbit.  It's pink and teal.  I love the look of it on Amazon.  I hope it's as pretty in person!  I will probably order more bands in the future. I wanted this one from the first time I saw it.  It has a different clasp than all the others, so I'll have to get used to that.  I wish it and my charger would ship!


Saturday storm?

Well, I was all dressed and heading out my door today for my walk when I heard thunder.  Well, I thought it was thunder! I heard it again and really thought it was thunder, so I decided to put my walk off.  I came in, took off my earbuds, and sat down on the sofa.  I kept waiting for the storm that didn't happen!  I am guessing some of the neighbors were doing something that was really loud and I just mistook it for thunder.  I have no clue.  By the time I realized it wasn't thunder, it was too late to go on my walk and stay on schedule.  What did I do instead?  Well, I mowed part of the lawn that needed it and planted two trees!  On my walk yesterday, a guy stopped me and asked if I liked flowers and plants.  He said someone gave him the two little saplings and he didn't have anywhere to put them.  I took them home with me.  One is an Oak, but I am not sure what the other is.  It didn't have an id tag on it.  I have an app that you can snap a picture of the leaf and it'll id the tree.  I plan to do that tomorrow.  I was going to do it today, but I never got around to it.

I did my workouts at the usual time and my French lesson also.  I had my lunch and then headed out for my walk.  It was a lot later than usual, but it was pretty nice.  It was cooler than it would have been earlier in the day.  I got in my regular route.  I came home and sat down to cool off.  Even though it was later and cooler, it was still rather warm!  It's been overcast all day and I think it's supposed to rain tomorrow.  I just hope it will be nice and hold off until after my walk!
