French book and a pen.

Yesterday, I received a book that I ordered from Amazon. It's Easy French Step by Step.  I think I mentioned this yesterday but didn't mention the name of the book.  It's pretty cool.  I'm going to get one of my many notebooks and keep it with it to write notes.  I just have decide if I want to use a one subject notebook or a bigger one.

Today, I got a dual tip pen that I ordered.  The color of the cap is blueish and the color is teal, but the color of the actual pen when you write with it is more green.  I'm not really happy about that.  I wanted the ink to look like the cap.  Oh well.  It's got a calligraphy tip on one end, and a brush tip on the other.  I wanted a blue calligraphy marker.  This is too green.  It's nicely made though.  It's made my ZIG memory system.  I will look and see if they have the color I really wanted.  

My favorite calligraphy makers are the Faber-Castell ones but I can only find them in the three colors I have.  Black, brown, and burgandy.  I really want a blue one!  I'll keep my eye out for what I'm looking for.  The tips on the Faber-Castell ones are so nice.  I use my black one a lot. Maybe I'll find one in another brand. 

 


Back on track

With my internet back, I got back on track today.  I got up and after breakfast, I went for my walk.  I got back from it and had time to relax with a cup of coffee before doing my workouts.  I did those and then played some Pocket Camp  before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I played more Pocket Camp and then worked on straightening up an area of my room that needed it. It's all done and looks so much better!  I wanted to do that.  It's an area that doesn't get used a lot, so it gets cluttered and dusty.  I got rid of the clutter, organized everything, dusted, and swept.  It's nice now.

I was relaxing after that and playing more Pocket Camp when my friend texted and asked if I want to go eat.  I did, so we did.  After we ate, we went to Ollie's and he got some things he needed.  He got me a paper cutter.  I found one that was only twenty dollars.  I was happy.  I've been wanting one like this.  I also got a journal.  I didn't need another journal, but this one is actual graph paper and it's blue with a pencil on the front. Here is my haul from Ollies:

I have the new bigger cutter on my craft cart with my smaller cutter and some sharpies. ^_^ It will be much easier to cut larger stacks of paper with this cutter than my little one.  I've wanted one for a while now and I was happy to see this one in Ollie's!


Saturday and Starbucks!

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!

Okay, so here is the notebook with the pen in the front and a view of one of the inside pages.  I think this will be perfect for my French learning.  I looked up the info inside and the codes are for  http://www.stkrit.com  It's probably something I won't use for this notebook, but I might use for something else.  It looks pretty neat!  Here is the notebook cover and the inside:
