Sunday again...

I didn't try to go to Starbucks today.  I didn't even get in my walk at the regular time.  It was really cold and we had freezing rain and ice today.  They had said it would be over at noon, but then they extended it a few more hours.  I didn't want to go walk in ant of that mess!  I decided to skip my walk and so I did.  I was basically a lump.  I didn't even leave bed until lunch time!  I wasn't sleeping, I was just in bed.  I finally got up and put my bed linens in to wash and fixed some lunch.  After eating it, I did a few things and then ran to to the park to hit a Pokestop.  I was on a seven day streak and today was day seven.  As I was leaving the park and heading home, I realized that it wasn't too bad out.  The rain had stopped and it the sky was trying to clear off a bit.  I decided to take a short walk. 

I got home and then went for my walk.  I only went a short distance.  Right under 4 miles.  It was almost dark when I got home, so I just did make it.  I came in and did my workouts.  I hadn't done those yet.  I did an extra one and then relaxed a bit before making dinner.  I played Pocket Camp off and on all day.  I'm trying to finish this crazy event.  I only need ten more butterflies and I'll have completed the event.  I want to finish this one.  That last one, I didn't even come close!  

I took a bath and washed my hair a bit ago after I put the bed linen back on the bed.  I'm now sitting with my head under the hair bonnet dryer.  It's almost dry.  It's so convenient to have this thing!  I love it so much.  After my hair is dry, I'm going to fix a small snack and then play more Pocket Camp and then read.  I'm enjoying the book about Lizzie Borden that I'm reading.  It's pretty good! 


Oh boy did it snow!

I was so not expecting the snow that we got today.  Yes, I knew  they were calling for snow but they are saying around 3 inches total.  Last official count I heard, we were almost to 7 inches!  It's probably going to be awhile before I can get back out to walk!  I went out and walked in the yard in it a bit this afternoon and it was crazy deep.  It was all powdery this afternoon.  After it finally stopped snowing, I went out to the front walk with a cutting board and cleared the walk!  The snow was so light, it was easy.  The only bad thing was that I couldn't find any of my gloves.  My poor hands were numb and then hurting when I came in!  I need to find my gloves!

I did my workouts this evening.  I was glad to do those since I couldn't walk.  I used the day to sit at my desk and look out at the snow. I also drank a lot of coffee!  I put three 'new' trackers in my bullet journal.  I put the Pokemon Go trackers of Generation 1-3 in there.  That took a while, so I it was a good day to do it when I couldn't really go anywhere! :p  Tomorrow I plan to write pen pal letters.  Hopefully I can get out before too many more days and get them mailed.  The mail didn't even run here today!  I hope it does tomorrow.  I'm expected some things.  One is supposed to be here tomorrow, but who knows with this crazy weather. :P

Here is one of the pictures I took today:

The building on the left is an old chicken house that has been on my property since forever.  You can see a outdoor table and chairs on the right.  There is a swing near the back of the yard.  It was so lovely out there, but it's going to be crazy trying to go anywhere anytime soon!

 


On a roll....

A Hawaiian roll would be good right now.  LOL No, not that kind of roll, unfortunately.  I'm on a roll today. I did my usual morning routine and then had breakfast.  I then got up and go dressed and headed out for my walk to the bank and to the grocery store.  I went to the bank and cashed my check.  I left there and went to Rose's and picked up a few things and then went to Food Lion and got one thing.  I headed back home then as I it was a dairy item and I didn't want to keep it out too long.

I got home and realized I had some time to relax a bit before my workouts.  I went on Hulu and saw that the newest Simpsons episode was up.  IT was the Treehouse of Horror one and I was happy to see it.  They usually air it a lot earlier in the month.  I watched that and then did my workouts.  It was a PIIT style workout and I was going, "Oh, this isn't so bad." On the first round.  Let's just say by the end, I was like.... I shouldn't have said that! LOL!  I was all sweaty and tired.  Luckily, I had a few minutes to cool down and relax before going to fix lunch!  I just had lunch actually.  It was good!

I know I usually post later in the day, well, except when I am at the beach! I wanted to get a blog post done while I was sitting down and relaxing for a bit.  I may take another walk tonight, I'm not sure yet.  We'll see! ^_^ On my earlier walk, I caught another Pikachu with Witch hat.  YAY! I will evolve him into a Raichu so I'll have one of each with a hat. :p


Sunday....

So, it's Sunday and it's my regular day to do my bed linen.  I have that in the dryer now.  I'm pretty sure it's ready to go back on the bed, I just need to get it out and do that.  I got in a smaller walk today.  I didn't go as far as yesterday as I didn't want to be walking after dark again.  I could have actually stayed out longer, but oh well! Tomorrow, I plan to walk earlier in the day as I need to go by the bank.  I got a small check and I want to cash it.  It's a whole $3.42! LOL  Not too exciting, but  was totally  broke before this, so at least I can get a few things while I'm out.

I got in my workouts on time and then relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.  After that, I waited just a little bit and then went for my walk.  I played Pokemon Go for some of my walk.  I caught a new one and I also caught a Pikachu in a witch hat.  So cute! :) I was hoping to catch more new ones, but I was happy for what I got!  I will probably play tomorrow when I walk to the bank.

Oh yesterday's walk, I started listening to the audiobook of The Stand.  I tried to pick up where I left off yesterday, but it didn't want to play correctly.  It would be going along just fine, and then just skip way ahead in the recording.  Weird. I didn't want to have to mess with that while walking, so I just switched to Cell.  I have the Audible audiobook of it, and it's all one long recording.  It wanted to be bitchy too!  It started part of the way in the recording.  I finally got it to behave and listened to that on my walk.  Crazy iPod issues! :p

 


Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


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!
