Too much coffee?

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.  


Sailor Moon, Starbucks, and stuff....

So, I rode with a friend of mine to Greensboro today for her doctor's appointment.  Her son went too.  He has been watching Sailor Moon and it made me want to re-watch it.  I saw that it was on Hulu, so I have started over from the beginning.  The quality is so good.  I'm an old time fan from the fan sub days.  The quality of some of those tapes was SO BAD.  This is such a treat being able to watch it like this!  I am up to the episode before Ami-chan shows up.  I'm waiting on Rei because she is and always has been my favorite.  I'm enjoying watching it.  I had to figure out how to make the subtitles show on Hulu, but I did and now I'm good!

As for Starbucks, my friend who had to go to Greensboro asked me yesterday if I'd go.  I said yes, if I got to go to a Starbucks. LOL  I went to one I've been to before but it's been a long time.  I will be able to add it to my tracker.  They also had stickers!  The barista give me eight of them. :D  These are a lot smaller than the one I got at the beach and they are clear around the Siren.  I put four on my Macbook. :P  I'll use the others for bullet journalling.  Speaking of my bujo, I didn't get around to making my beach trip page last night.  I think I'm going to wait until I get some ink for my printer so I can put some of the pictures I took on my trip in there.  I think that would be cool.

While in Greensboro, we went to P.F. Chang's for lunch.  I had an email that had, 'buy one entree, get one free' so we did that.  I was broke, so that was the only way I could have eaten.  Well, she was going to get my lunch for going with her, but I told her about the deal I had to save her some money. ^_^ I told her since I saved her money on lunch she should have bought my Starbucks! LOL!

It was a full day.  I came home and watched some Night Court and then I looked for Sailor Moon and found it on Hulu.  They have all 200 episodes. I just hope they don't take them off before I can re-watch the entire show.  It's been a lot of years since I've seen it all.  It's still good, but there are some things that annoy me.  They translate Mamo saying "bun head" instead of "dumpling head".  Dumpling head just sounds better! LOL  Other than that, it's been great.  I know the translations are going to be different as the ones I watched were all fan done.  The quality of the episodes makes up for it.  After I finish the original Sailor Moon, I'll watch Crystal!

BTW, here is a picture of my Macbook with all it's goodies!

Wednesday and post time!

So, I am actually posting today!  I have been on track today with everything, so I thought I'd post to my blog early.  I have done my workouts, too!  I was thinking of going to Starbucks tonight, but I don't think I'm going to.  Maybe tomorrow night.  I want to get my four pen pal letters written.  I need to go out and pick up a prescription before the pharmacy closes at 8 tonight.  I might do that or wait until tomorrow.  I'm not sure.  I was hoping it would be ready when I was out yesterday, but I didn't get the text that it was available until after I had gotten home.  I had to run a few errands yesterday and was hoping to get it while out.

I went to carry my recyclables to the recycle center yesterday.  I then went to Food Lion to get some of the One Touch latte stuff.  It was on sale and they were out of the caramel.  They had plenty of the mocha and the vanilla.  I decided to run to another Food Lion that isn't too far away from my main one.  They had two cans left of the caramel, so I bought them both! LOL!  

I'm trying to decide how to share more of my beach trip pictures.  I am not sure if I want to make an album like I did for the Spring trip, so go to a photo sharing site.  I wish that Flickr was more polished.  I'd use that.  The sites that I really like are pay sites and I can't afford that!  I'll keep looking into it and see what I can find.  If you have any suggestions of great photo sharing sites where I can post albums, that would be great!


Friday evening....

Wow, what a day.  I walked on the beach this morning and got splashed by some waves.  I had to come back and put my shorts out to dry. lol  Later, I went walking to 17.  I went to Bargain Beachwear to get a few postcards.  I also got a keychain.  I headed further down 17 and then turned and headed back to Ocean Boulevard.  I got part of the way back and then took my shoes off and walked on the beach back to the hotel.  I came back and relaxed on the balcony a bit.  My friend and I went to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to Tuesday Morning and I got three more rolls of the washi that I liked so much.  I also found some other goodies.  A package of Halloween stickers and some craft tiny clothespins.  After leaving there, we headed to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  That was delicious as always!

Since we were right near the Goodwill, we went there.  I got a MB shirt and a package of full page labels.  I can use them to make my own stickers at home. YAY!  There were twenty left in the box.  I'm pretty sure when you buy a small package of them, they come ten to the pack and they are over $10 a pack!  Crazy!  These were $1 Yes!  We went to the Dollar General that is next door to the Goodwill and got a few things and then headed back down the strip.  There was another Starbucks that I hadn't been to yet, so he swung by there and I went in and got myself a latte. :D  He wanted ice cream, so he stopped at Burky's.  We've eaten at Burky's before.  It's pretty good.  He got ice cream and then we headed down to the road where Market Common was.  We had seen the sign before and looked for it but didn't find it.  We found it tonight!  It was late, so most everything was closed, but at least we found it. :P  It has a lot of high end stores, it seems.

So we then headed back towards the room.  We saw a miniature golf place that looked pretty cool.  We went and one sign said they closed at 10:30, the sign on the building said 11.  The lady said they closed at 10!  It was about 9:32 by then, so we didn't get to play.  Phooey! We headed back here and I did my workouts.  I'm posting this and then I'm going to take my nightly beach walk.  I'm really tired, but I still want to at least walk a little bit. ^_^ 


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.  


First full day so far....

So, I told you in my earlier post that I might post again today.  Well, I'm posting!  I wanted to tell you about my day up until now.  I ate leftover pizza this morning and had three cups of coffee!  My friend and I sat on the balcony for a while just enjoying the view.  I decided after a bit to go out.  He wasn't ready to go yet, so I went out and walked.  I went to Big Lots, Dollar General, and several different beachwear stores.  All are having good end of the season sales.  I got two NICE t-shirts in the Bargain Beachwear (My favorite beachwear shops) for $10!  I thought that was a great deal.  One is the an exact match to one I got in June but in a different color.  It's red.  The other shirt I got today is blue.  Both are pretty.  

I also found myself a really nice heavy duty coffee mug in another beachwear store.  I can't remember which one at the moment. I always bring my bestie a present from the beach that is something to do with turtles.  It's getting harder and harder to find something different to carry her.  I found something though.  I won't mention it in case she reads this. :p

In that store, I found a pink long tank that I bought half off of the sale price, I think I paid $4 for it  I will use it as a beach cover up and it can also be a good workout shirt for at home.  I went in soooo many beachwear shops.  It's a nice diversion and it's usually nice and cool in them!

I came back here and I have my phone charging.  It went down to 11% while I was out. Oops!  I forgot that it wasn't fully charged when I left the room.  It's charging now and hopefully it will be pretty close to full when we go out tonight.  I am not sure where exactly we are going.  He mentioned perhaps the Dead Dog Saloon as we both love it.  We had planned to do that tomorrow night, but neither of us like the guy who is performing tomorrow night.  They have live music at the restaurant.

So, I may update again later tonight and I may just do it tomorrow. We'll see.  OH! I did my workouts this afternoon.  It was cardio.  WAH!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL  I did them though.  After I post this, I'm going to do my French lesson with Duolingo and then wait to see what we are going to do tonight.  I took a picture with Photobooth of the ocean. I don't think it will look as good as a picture from my phone, but I'll share it here:

Okay, not great, but it will do for now. :p


Wednesday again.

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

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!


Walk again and more

We walked again today. At first I wasn't sure if we would be able to because they were calling for rain.  It was overcast for our entire walk, but it didn't rain a drop!  It was nice to get the walk in.  Afterwards, I went by the grocery store and picked up a few items to get me through until Monday.  I am pretty proud of walking today. Why?  Because of today's workouts!  They were extremely hard on my butt, legs, and calves.  Walking after that took some determination, but I did it!

I can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of March.  That means on Saturday I can officially use my new bullet journal.  I have been using both this week since my March tracker is still in the old one.  I'm so ready for my new one.  It's so much lighter. lol  Plus, it's still intact! :P
