Treadmill... well... sort of!

My friend came today and helped me get the treadmill from my car and into my house.  We set it up where I want to use it and plugged it in.  Then, he realized that the 'key' that you have to connect to use it wasn't there!  He'll look for it tomorrow when he goes back to the house where he got it.  Hopefully he'll find it. If not, it should be easy enough to order a spare online.  I was able to get the model number from it so I could download a pdf of the manual.  It's pretty nice.  I has two cup holders and a book holder.  I think I'm going to like it.  I just wish I could have tested it out! It was too big for my room, so I put it in another room.  I will have to get a fan for that room!  In the winter, I have extra space heaters, so that won't be a problem.  Now, I just need to get the key so I can test it out.

It was so hot on my walk today.  I had just started out and I thought to myself, "I've made a mistake." LOL . I went ahead and did my whole walk though.  The machine was still out of soda! :( I had just enough with me and with the added 50¢ that someone left in the machine that was empty.  I was able to get a bottled one at the hospital.  Luckily, I didn't have to go into the hospital  They have the drink and snack machines in between the automatic doors.  I don't need germs with my soda. :p

Tomorrow is double star day at Starbucks, so I might go and write my pen pal letters.  No, I still didn't do them today. :( I would have gone over there tonight, but I knew my friend was coming to help me move in the treadmill, so I didn't go.  I would like to go tomorrow as they was always my regular day.  We'll see.  If nothing else, I'll go and get one to go and come home and drink it and write my letters. ^_^

 


More purse pics....

I was able to get out and take some pictures of my purse today.  Here are a couple: 20180804_154904

It also has a clip on strap so it can be carried cross body.  It's so pretty.  I still can't seem to get a picture of the true color of it. lol . To me it's a deep rose color.  

It was sunny today as you can see in these pictures. I was able to walk without worrying about rain.  That was nice, but at the same time, it was really hot.  I came home and cooled off before doing my workouts.  I had to run out for a couple of errands and then came home and I've been here since.  I meant to go to the post office while I was out, but I never made it.  I am planning on writing letters tomorrow.  I might run those and drop them off tomorrow evening and pick up any new ones.  I think I have two or three waiting for me.

 

 


That was more like it!

I got in my walk today.  It was sunny and overcast during the walk.  It was like it couldn't make up it's mind. :p . I didn't get rained on, so that was good! It was extremely hot though.  That part wasn't great.  I got through though.  I came home and cooled down a bit and then did my workouts.  I just finished those a little bit ago and then did my French lesson.  I am now blogging before I do anything else today.  I may go to Starbucks tonight with my pen pal letters, an dI may not. I haven't decided as of yet.  I might just run over and get a latte through the drive thru and come home and write letters.  I need to run by the post office and pick up a few that have come in since I last checked it.

I use Informed Delivery at both my house and my post office box.  I like it at the post office because I don't waste a trip down there when there is nothing in my box.  I have two or three waiting.  I need to go get those so I can answer all my letters together.  Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to fix for lunch!  I can't wait to go to the grocery store on Friday.  I'm out of everything I like! lol


No stamps, no mail!

I went to the post office tonight to mail a letter and to check my box.  I had my bank statement and a very familiar looking letter. It was one of the ones I sent out last week!  I forgot to put a stamp on it. LOL . Oops!  I brought it home, opened it, added a note to my pen pal and then put a stamp on it.  I'll mail it on tomorrow walk.  

Today's walk was pretty nice.  It was overcast so it wasn't as hot as it usually is.  That was a nice change!  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I got those and my French done and then had a little time before fixing lunch.  The weather app on my phone said it was an 80% chance of rain on my walk, but it never did rain.  It even got sunny after I came home.  The sky was still mainly clear when I went to the post office, but I noticed it was dark off in the distance.  It's been storming off and on for a while now.  The rain was really coming down, too!  One clap of thunder was so loud, it sounded like someone was outside my window fired a gun. I jumped!  It was extremely loud.  I love storms, but that was crazy!

I am not sure what it is going to be like tomorrow when it's time for me to walk.  Hopefully if it's going to rain, it will wait until later like it did today!  We'll see.  I want to at least get my pen pal letter out since it's been so long since I originally sent it. :p


Whoo!

I have written eleven letters and I only have one more to go!  I'll be mailing them all off tomorrow on my walk.  I can't believe I got so far behind.  I'm caught up now and I'm very happy!  I have two new pen pals in this batch.  Yay!  Oh boy, a moth just attacked me while I was typing. Help! It's still attacking meeeeeeeee LOL Seriously, this moth is nuts. :p

Anyway!  I am worn out from walking, working out, and writing letters!  I'll type up a good post tomorrow.  I did take a picture on my walk today to share:

Well phooey....

It's been a really long day.  I planned to get a lot more done than I have today.  Hopefully I can get things done tomorrow.  I did walk and do my workouts.  I just haven't wanted to do much else.  I've been so tired.  Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight and get a lot done tomorrow.

 I started typing some pen pal letters tonight, but I have a lot more to do.  I'm just going to finish all of those tomorrow.  I so wish I could go to Starbucks, get a latte, and write my letters!

I transfered a folder from the Macbook over to the MBP today.  It was over 70 GB!  When it first started moving over it said it would take 6 days. LOL!  Luckily it didn't take but a few hours.  I wanted to make sure that got done before starting on my letters.  That is one reason I didn't get much done.  That folder will be good to have so I am not having to open the Macbook.  I had to go on it last night for a file and I remembered why I was so happy with my MBP.  It is so slow. Poor old Macbook!  

I got another snap on case today so I would have some variety.  It's blue like the other but it's a different color blue and it's a made a little differently.  Here it is on the MBP.  It was sitting on my yoga mat after I did today's workouts.

Hello from the MacBook Pro!

Yes, it finally came and I love it to pieces.  I filmed myself opening the box just in case there was any issues or problmes.  There were none!  I got it turned on and it was already 'setup' with a admin user.  I wanted my own stuff, so I looked at how to do that.  Just go into the command line in the startup.  Since I've used Linux, command line is not a problem!  I got it set up for me and and it's so cool!  I have all the programs on it that I wanted to move over.  The only thing left is PhotoShop Elements and it's installing now.  I'm very happy with this MBP!  It's super fast and all the things that were so slow on my Macbook are not on here.  It's so nice!

So, I did walk today.  The laptop hadn't gotten here before I left, so I decided I should go ahead and walk.  I knew if I didn't walk and it didn't come during the time I could have walked, I would have been so upset!  I walked and was cooling down with a snack on my bed and listening for the FedEx man! lol I didn't hear him, but I got a notification on my phone from an app called Slice that said it had been delivered! I jumped up from the bed and ran to the porch. lol . It was sitting there waiting for me.  I finished my snack and then unboxed it.  Hearing that Mac startup sound was music to my ears.  It's so nice.  I'm in love.

My friend knew it was coming today, but he wanted to go eat.  He said if I could pull myself away from it long enough to eat we'd go. LOL . I told him I could and I did!  I also got him to run me by Food Lion.  Today was the last day of the sale, and I wanted to get some more of my favorite frozen dinners.  They had them for $2.50 and if you buy 5, they take $1 off each.  So I got 10 for fifteen dollars. SCORE!!!!!!  They are so good, they remind me of a restaurant quality pasta dish. 

So, he dropped me home and I came right back to the MBP and started installing PSE.  I am going to write letters tonight or tomorrow.  I finally got some stamps today. YAY!  I have so many letters.  I never meant to get this far behind.  Shame on me!


Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!

Sipping Starbucks and blogging...

Yes, I am! I tried to get my friend to carry me over there but she wouldn't. Phooey on her! :P  I drove to the post office and then went on to Starbucks while out.  I got two letters.  I have those and the two I got recently. Sadly, I only have five stamps! :(  I only have those because my friend bought a book and gave me a few! I was happy about that.

My walk was quite steamy today.  When I left Starbucks, the bank said it was 94˚!  Yes, I got hot coffee. LOL!  It was so funny.  I walk up to the counter and look at the gift cards.  I got a few of the new special ones. YAY1  The barista said, "You want your cascara?"  :P  I said, "Yes,"  She said, "Hot?" I said yes. LOL  I'm the cascara lady at Starbucks. :p  I got my goodie and then left to drive home. I made it home safely and now I'm drinking my latte and blogging.

Last night right at midnight, I decided it would be a good time to move my room around.  I did it, too!  I like to change it up every so often.  The way it is now, I have more room on both sides of my yoga mat when I'm doing workouts, but I have less room long ways.  The only thing this will make trouble with is roll overs and they aren't in the videos a lot.  If they are, I can move my mat to a different spot.  

I've done my workouts and my French lesson.  I just need to do my squats for today.  I've been doing them everyday.  I've been loading the video that Cassey does and do them along with her.  I am walking at the time she goes live, so I watch it later in the day. That is the only thing I need to do for today.  I do need to hang a couple of beach wind chimes that I took down when I moved the room around.  They go in another spot when the room is this way. I need to do that and straighten the stuff under my bed and I'll be done.  I might get to my letters and write some tonight.  Who knows?! ^_^


New banner, new colors....

I created a new banner for the blog tonight. It's from a picture I took one year on a trip to Myrtle Beach.  I was able to find the Happy Monkey font online and downloaded it to the Macbook.  I used to to create the banner.  I like it. ^_^  I wish I had had it yesterday when I was typing pen pal letters!  

Speaking of pen pal letters, I wrote seven yesterday and mailed them today.  After my walk, workouts, French, etc, I went to the post office.  I had already mailed my letters off, so I was just checking my box.  I'm glad I did as I had five new letters! I also had the receipt for my post office box payment that I paid earlier this month.  After I left the post office, I decided to treat myself to Starbucks since I was out and about.  I was going to get a tall caramel Frappuccino and then I remembered that I had a coupon loaded to my Gold card that would give me a grande size for $3.  I got a grande. :p  As I was pulling out of the drive thru, I got to see the Corgi. <3  He is so cute!
