Pokemon Go Feed

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.  


OMG am I tired!

I decided to walk to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area today.  It was overcast so I knew it wouldn't be horribly hot.  Unfortunately, it started to rain!  I got wet, too!  I went in the Gay Dolphin and looked around a bit. I meant to go to I Love Sugar, but I forgot! I went to the Starbucks past the Sky Wheel area and sat down for a bit.  I found two Starbucks gift cards that I didn't have so I got those. :p  I texted my friend and asked if he wanted to come get me on the way to shop.  He did.  I walked to 17 so I could get a good spot for him to pick me up.  I did that and he did.  We went to a couple of Dollar Tree stores, we also went to Tuesday Morning.   I found too much stuff in there!  We ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  Yummy!  

We went to the Goodwill at North Myrtle Beach too.  I got him to carry me by the Starbucks at North Myrtle too.  I was able to get four of the fall leaf gift cards.  She let me have them without loading them. Yay!  I also was able to get a coffee passport. YAY! :D  I was so happy.  I haven't found any stickers down here, but I have my passport. ^___^

We are back at the room and my phone is charging.  It got down to abou 44% while we were out there.  I am so tired.  I still have to do my workouts tonight, too.  Plus, talk my daily or nightly, beach walk.  I might have to rest a while before that.  It's not raining anymore.  It's still overcast, but it's not too bad.  It feels pretty nice out here on the balcony.  I am going to relax here for a while and then go in and have some coffee. 


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!


Happy Birthday to me!

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!

Sunday, again.

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. ^_^


What a day.

I did my workouts and posted yesterday's on Instagram. lol I realized my mistake and then posted the correct day's workouts. :P I went to the park to hit a few Pokestops.  I was on a streak and today was day seven.  I like do to the Pokestop streaks as I get special stuff on day 7.  Not to mention all the extra goodies you get when you hit a pokestop on day seven!

It looked like it was going to storm. I was going to stay at the park, but it began to thunder so I went home.  It never did storm.  I sat on the porch to enjoy the storm that never happened!  It did rain a little bit though.  I was hoping to sit out and enjoy the storm.  Oh well! I swear that the grass GREW during the rain. I'll have to mow it soon.  It's rained so much lately, it's hard to get a time where it's dry enough to mow!

When I headed to the park today, I went to McDonald's and got myself a Frappe.  They have the small size McCafe items for $2.  I treated myself.  I enjoyed it in the park while play9ing Pokemon Go. I carried my camera and took some pictures of the park and the squirrels. 


Well....

This has been a very frustrating day!  I had a major calamity.  I am sure I mentioned that there was a leak in one of the rooms of my house.  Well, when I got up this morning, the ceiling tiles finally gave way.  I just spent a long time trying to fix it.  First I sprayed some stuff on the ceiling (hoping it will help with the leak)  I put some cardboard and styrofoam in there and then secured it.  I covered all that with some Contact paper.  It doesn't look great, but it's a a good temporary fix.  Plus, it looks a heck of a lot better than that hole!

Other than that, I didn't do a lot.  I did my workouts, I went to the park to Pokemon Go.  I also was able to get some Chinese for dinner!  My friend felt bad for the day I'd been having and gave me enough money to get some Chinese.  I got some homestyle bean curd.  So good!  It helped make up for all the frustations a bit.  Now I'm going to relax for a bit.  I have a killer headache from the stuff I sprayed.  Ugh!


Saturday already?!!

I can't believe that it's Saturday and my last full day here.  I'm going to miss waking up and sitting on my bed looking out at the beautiful ocean view!  I don't want to go home at all!  It's another gorgeous day here, too.  I think we are going to hit a breakfast buffet today.  After that, I'm coming back here to relax and enjoy my last day here.  My friend is going to a few places he wants to go that I don't really care about.  I'll enjoy a day of just relaxing in the room.  We'll probably hit the beach this afternoon as we didn't go down yesterday.  We did take our nightly walk on the beach, though.

As for walking, I did a lot yesterday.  I walked to 17 to a few stores and then came back here.  I stayed in the room a bit and then decided to go to the Pavilion area again.  I went to Bargain Beachwear and got yet another hoodie. :P  I went to I Love Sugar and got some candy.  I walked back and was happy to relax until we went out to dinner!  I was so tired after all that.  I played Pokemon Go while I was out and I actually caught four new ones.  Yeah!  That was cool.  

As of right now, I'm drinking some delicious coffee and waiting on my friend to get up and get ready to go to breakfast.  I am ready for all you can eat BACON! LOL


Beach trip memories

Okay, so on Thursday morning, I got up at 6:30.  Our plan was to be on the road by 7.  My friend was running behind so it was about 8:30 when we finally got going.  We had breakfast from Hardee's.  He picked it up on the way and we ate in the car at my house before heading out.

We didn't stop until we got to Rockingham North Carolina. There is a Shell gas station there that also has a convenience store.  We always stop here to get gas, use the restroom, and get a snack.  I got a water and a Reese's.  Yum!  We headed on and got to our hotel at North Myrtle Beach around 1 pm.  We were able to check it immediately and went to our room.  I was a nice little room on the fifth floor.  We unpacked and then decided to order pizza.  An hour later, no pizza.  We called and then said, "It was just coming out of the oven."  After several other excuses.  We cancelled it and ordered from somewhere else.  That actually came and we ate.  I had mine on the balcony so I could enjoy the ocean while eating.

That evening, we went to Dollar Tree. I was able to get three packs of mini washi. :)  Also, there was a Starbucks across the street from the shopping center we were at, so I got myself a caramel macchiato. :D  We also went to a Goodwill and I got a really cool package of stickers and rub ons.  There were a LOT of them in there and I paid 6.99 for them.  There was some great stuff in there.  I'll do  a picture post tomorrow and show all the goodies.

We walked on the beach for a bit that night and then crashed not long after.  Friday morning, we got a late start and we wanted breakfast, so we went to a restaurant called Eggs Up Grill.  It was pretty good!  We went and got some snacks for the room at a Dollar General and then went back to the room.  We took ourselves out to the beach and set up an umbrella on the beach.  We spent about two hours on the beach.  I took a lot of pictures!  

That evening, we went to go to a Sonic that we had enjoyed last year.  Unfortunately it was closed.  Torn completely down and a car wash was in it's place!  We then decided to check out Red Robin but they were packed.  Golden Corral was the same way, so we looked up another Sonic on the GPS and went there.  We ordered and about 45 minutes later, we had no food!  We tracked down one of the car hops and she went to check.  It was 'wrong' and they had to re-make part of it but the other part had been sitting.  We asked to just cancel the order and get a refund.  They came out with the refund and the food.  They had re-made everything fresh.  We ate and then went to the Dairy Queen at Myrtle to get some ice cream.  We got that and then headed back to the room for the night. We walked on the beach too.

Saturday, we got up in time to make it to Golden Corral while they still had breakfast out.  It was right at the time they were switching to lunch, but I was still able to get eggs, bacon, and hash browns. Yay!  I also had a couple of their delicious yeast rolls and some cotton candy. LOL!  What a combo, eh?  After breakfast, we went by the Goodwill again.  I was able to get a nice water bottle (stainless and insulated!) for .99!  We got back to the room and I decided to walk. My friend stayed at the room as he planned to go on the beach.

I walked out to 17 and walked across the highway to a Bargain Beachwear.  I got a shirt, a key chain, a shell bracelet and a little present for my friend back home.  I walked down 17 and went into a Tuesday Morning.  I got a lot of discounted Smash journal stuff for less than $10!  I'll include that in tomorrow's picture post.  I then walked on to the Dollar Tree and got three more packs of that thin washi.  I also got a water.  I was going to get Starbucks, but I decided to just head back to the room.

I went back onto Ocean Boulevard and walked back to the hotel that way.  I spent balcony time and relaxed a bit. When my friend was ready to go to dinner, we headed out and decided on King's Famous pizza.  We've eaten here on a previous trip.  The food and the service were terrific!  He got spaghetti and I got my own little pepperoni pizza.  Dinner was delicious.  We drove up 17 all the way to Little River and then headed back.  We got some ice cream at the Sonic at NMB and then went to the room.

I walked on the beach by myself.  I didn't stay out long though as I was really tired from my walk earlier and I wanted to get most everything packed up since we would be leaving the next day.

Sunday started with me waking up way too early!  I finished my packing and then waited for my friend to get going.  We finally got checked out and then went to Bojangles for breakfast.  We stopped once more before leaving the beach.  We stopped at a gas station in Myrtle that we usually hit going out.  After filling up, we went in to use the restroom and he got a soda and a candy bar. I got a coffee and a candy bar.  

Speaking of coffee!  The hotel didn't have a coffee maker in the room, but luckily, the lobby had a nice coffee maker and fresh coffee brewed all the time.  I had some delicious coffee at the beach!  I also got to play Pokemon Go every day, too!

We stopped in Rockingham on the way home at the Sandwich Hut.  He got more gas, snacks, and took a bathroom break.  We then headed home.  It was too short of a trip, but it was nice. I'll do a picture post of some of my goodies tomorrow!
