Yes, it's Monday again. I did my usual today. I did my workouts, watched Sailor Moon, and went to the post office. I actually had two letters from pen pals. Yay! I might just have to go to Starbucks on Wednesday night and write letters. We'll see. Right now I'm going to watch more Sailor Moon S and then do some work in my bujo!
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! ^_^.
No, not really, but I think I set a record for myself today! :P I had six cups of coffee, and one of those was Starbucks! I had no plans to go to Starbucks today. I had planned to stay in and relax while doing my regular Sunday chores. I was in the middle of an episode of Sailor Moon when my phone rang. It was my friend that I'm always trying to get to go to Starbucks with me. She wanted to go to Starbucks! LOL! I couldn't say no when I ask her all the time, now could I? :P We went and I got a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie. :p It was good.
I did my workouts today, washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed, washed my hair, washed another load of clothes. Those I need to check on and see if they are ready for the dryer. I also ran out to the post office. I only got one letter. Phooey! I plan to write my letters tomorrow and get them all caught up. I'll try to mail them tomorrow too, if possible. I am so behind on everything! Sheesh!
OH! I watched all four of the new Adventure Time episodes on PS VUE. I have Adventure Time as one of my favorite shows so it saved all four of the new episodes. They were all good, but they just left me wanting more. They need to put out episodes in a timely manner. I know there isn't a lot of the show left, but I want to see what I can.
So yesterday, I wrote pen pal letters. I didn't go to Starbucks, though. I just wrote them at home. I got them all ready to mail and headed for the post office to mail them. I checked my box and I had five new letters! I will get those written sometime this week. I'm not sure which day, but before the weekend. I want to be all caught up with my mail before next weekend. Why? Beach trip. Yes, back to Myrtle Beach for a week. I'm so ready for this trip!
Yes, it's my birthday. My bestie texted me to come up really quick before she left! Rude. Made plans out of town on my birthday. I went up there and I got a gift card to Food Lion (grocery store), a gift card for Starbucks, and a Starbucks tote bag. ^_____^ I actually got what I asked for this year! Her mom gave me $20, too!
I went to the grocery store and got some much needed things. I also went to Dollar Tree and got some stickers, some cute arrow shaped paper clips, a pen, and some popcorn kernels. It was so hot I was afraid they'd pop on the way home! I was right there near Starbucks so I went to the drive thru and got a Cascara latte. I had a free drink on my card from a recent star dash so that was nice.
I went by the post office before coming home and had three letters. Two from newer pen pals that look to be good ones, and one from my favorite pen pal. She sent some goodies. ^_^ I was glad I went by there. I hadn't planned to, but when I left Starbucks, I was coming back across this one bridge. The traffic was such that I couldn't get in the lane to head towards home. Since I was headed in the direction of the post office, I just decided to run down there and check my box. Yay!
So, now I'm home in my room with the air conditioner and the fan running. My bed linen is in the dryer waiting for me to go and get it and put it back on the bed. I just need to wash my hair and do my workouts and then I'm calling it a day. OH! When I was at the grocery store, I restocked several cans of the One Touch Latte stuff. It's so good! With plenty of that, I am hoping I can hold off until the end of the week to go back to Starbucks. I have my birthday gift card already transferred to my Gold card.
Oh! Here is a picture of the cool Starbucks tote bag. I asked my bestie for this earlier this month and I actually got it! The gift card was a really nice bonus. Even better, it 's one I didn't already have in my collection! Yay!
So, today's workouts were hell! Lol It's cardio day and the #100burpeeburnout was on there. I drank three bottles of water during my workouts! Lol
I ran out to go to the post office and mail my letters. While I was out, I somehow found myself in the Starbucks at Target! Lol I don't know how that happened. :p
Yes, I made it to Starbucks today. I enjoyed a delicious free Venti cascara latte! I may or may not have also had a chocolate chip cookie. :p I wrote two pen pal letters while there and took a picture of my Starbucks store tracker. I thought taking a picture of it at Starbucks would be pretty epic. It was. Here is a picture that I took. I love my tracker! I'll put the old location in first and then this new one. I'll add more as I go to them. I think it will be fun to track the different ones I go to.
There you go! I spent several hours in there as I was able to get my favorite table. It was a good day!
I decided to use my big Traveler's notebook for my Starbucks info book, but I decorated the small one with Starbucks logos on all the inserts. I thought it looked really cool, too!
Cute, yes? I'm going to carry it in my purse to always have a notebook with me. I think the Starbucks logos make the inserts look cooler.
So, today was busy! After I got out of bed, I put my bed linen in to wash. I did my workouts in the afternoon and then had lunch. I ran out after that to mail my pen pal letters. I had three more waiting on me. I stopped by the park and hit a few Pokestops and then headed home. I relaxed for a bit and then decided I was going to mow the front lawn. I had just filled the mower and was about to start when I got a text. My friend wanted to know if I wanted to walk. I didn't, really, but I said, okay.
I went in and changed my shoes and waited for him. We walked a little over 4 miles and then got something to eat. I rode with him to the bank and then I came home and mowed the front lawn. It was getting dark as I was finishing. I had originally planned to do the front and part of the back, but since it was so late, and dark, I just got the front done. That looks good. I will have to check tomorrow to make sure that I didn't miss any spots. lol
I washed my hair and now I'm sitting here with it up in a towel. My bed linen is in the dryer and hopefully it will be dry soon so I can put it back on the bed. I am looking forward to clean bed linen. ^_^
I decided today that I should take my pen pal letters to Starbucks this afternoon. I was hoping they wouldn't be too busy and I'd be able to get a seat. They weren't, and I did! I sat at one of the little tables. My favorite table was taken. I wrote all but one of my letters and was on the last one when I decided to move to the comfy chairs for a bit. I had gotten there and saw my favorite table open up. I went and got it and spent the rest of the time there. ^_^ I was happy to get to sit in my favorite spot one last time. Last time? You ask. Well, this particular location is moving a short distance away into a larger location. They will be closing at 2pm on the 31st and won't re-open in the new location until August 4th. I'm glad I went as I didn't know they were moving so soon. I got to sit in my favorite comfy chair once more and at my favorite table. That was nice!
Also, while I was there, I got an extra drink for free! One of the regulars ordered his drinks and they were wrong somehow. I don't know the details. He gave one to a lady that was at the counter and asked around if anyone wanted the other. It was a caramel frappuccino. I said, yes! LOL! I had long since finished my cascara latte, so this was a nice surprise! I enjoyed it immensely. I shouldn't have had it as I had had a chocolate chip cookie, but free Starbucks! LOL
I got all my letters written. I hand wrote all of them. I just need to get them in envelopes and ready to mail. I'll do that after I finish typing this. I did take quite a lot of pictures of Starbucks while I was there. I'm going to miss this location. It was my first Starbucks! I've grown so fond of it. I'm sure I'll learn to love the new location too, but it won't be the same! Yes, I took my bullet journal with me. :)
Today's workouts were intense. It was arm day so that part wasn't so bad. The cardio video to open the workouts? The #100burpeeburnout YIKES! I survived. I think that was the main reason I figured Starbucks would be a good idea! After all the stress lately and then that, Starbucks was necessary. :P
I hope to get down to the post office tomorrow to mail these letters and check my box. I hope I have more letters. That would be cool. Of course if there are more than 9 that might be a bad thing! LOL!
So, I had to do some errands for my friends that are out of town. I went up to their house and got their van. Yeah, I had to drive a mom van. lol I went to check their post office box to see if they had any checks for their business. They had one, so I went to Starbucks. It was really hot outside and the van has no air! I got a Cascara latte and sat in Starbucks. I filled out the deposit slip and got that ready to go. I enjoyed sitting in there for a bit and I got my favorite table! I also worked on my bullet journal. I left there and went to the bank at the mall. They closed the drive thru. I had no clue. I remembered that their bank also has a location downtown. I went down there and deposited the check and then since I was near the post office, I stopped in there. There was plenty of parking for once. Yay! I checked my box and I had three letters. One from a regular pal and two from new ones. One is from one that I sent out a letter to recently to potentially be a pen pal. She wrote back and wants to be. Yay! I had another letter from a potential new pal. It's cool to get letters!
So, I went to two post offices, the bank, and Starbucks. I got home a bit later than I usually start my workouts, so I decided to just wait until after lunch to do them. I finished them a bit ago and now I'm done for the day. Well, almost done. I have to go back up to my friend's house to check their mail and that is pretty much it. I already went up and brought their trash can in and checked everything out. It was too early for the mailman, so I need to do that later. I'll probably go after I post this. That way, after I do that, I can just relax for the rest of the evening. I slept a little better last night, so that was good. Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight too.
