Monday again?!

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!


Weekend whimsy

So, today has been a regular day.  I got up and did my usual morning things.  Coffee was involved. :p  After breakfast, I started watching more Sailor Moon.  I'm now more than half way through season 1.  I just finished episode 26.  Makoto has arrived and Minako isn't too far behind!  I've been enjoying it.  I even mowed some on the lawn and did my workouts.  I watched an episode of Cold Case Files on Youtube too.  I didn't go anywhere today.  I decided after going out yesterday, I would just spend the day here today.  Plus, I had plenty to watch.  I'm so ready to get to season 2.  Everything really starts rolling then.  I just hope Hulu keeps it on until I can get through all 200 episodes!  I still have all my fansubs, but like I said, the quality on some of them is horrible.  Plus it's VHS! :P

I am going to do my French lesson on Duolingo, and then I think I'll settle in and relax a bit before bedtime.  I think I'll save watching more episodes until tomorrow.  I really need to write pen pal letters.  I planned to do that tonight, but I got so wrapped up in Sailor Moon, I sort of let it slip.  Oops!  Well, I'll try to get them written tomorrow and then get them mailed. I need to check my box for new ones.  I sent myself a post card while at the beach and I sent it to my po box and not my home address, so I should have at least that waiting for me. ^_^


Letters and more letters.

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! 


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!

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

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. ^_^


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!


Monday post time!

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.


Monday!

So, I pulled the zero key off my Macbook today and cleaned under it.  It still doesn't work.  If I had some compressed air, I'd try that, but I don't have any at the moment.  I will just continue to use my Mac without the zero key.  If I need it, I have the onscreen keyboard I can pull up or I can use my bluetooth keyboard.

I got my workouts in today and then ran to the recycle center.  My car did okay.  It actually started right up too!  I got my recycling done and headed home.  I fixed lunch and then did a few things I needed to do.  I mowed my front lawn.  Now my entire yard is done.  It was really hot out there.  I was glad to get  it finished.  I wrote pen pal letters and drove my car yet again.  It did okay this time too.  I shouldn't have driven it twice today, but I wanted to get my letters mailed and I really wanted to check my box!  I had four new letters, a postcard from a pen pal, a envelope with two post cards from another pal, and some junk mail. It was great to have letters.  I will get those written in a few days.  

I finally got my printer re-connected to my Macbook.  I had some issues with it for a while and it wouldn't work at all.  I had to transfer everything to my Windows laptop to print. I got that fixed today after some work.  I'm glad I got that done.  It's much better to be able to print off of all my computer.  Now if I could just get my Linux laptop to print!

By the way, getting the key back on the Mac was interesting!  The key itself was easy, but there is a little scissor like contraption under it.  That was the hard part.  I got it back together and if I get some compressed air, I won't have to pull up that part. At least I hope not. lol  It was getting ridiculous and then I just pulled up another key and looked to see how the little scissor thing was under that one. That did the trick.  Sometimes it's fun being a geek and sometimes it's just frustrating! :)

In case you wanted to see it, here is a picture of all the mail in my post office box:

Car troubles on a Sunday....

Well, technically I've been having car troubles for over two years now.  They are just worse today.  I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed.  It took awhile, but I finally got my car to start.  It's acting up worse than usual, so it didn't want to drive down to the grocery store. I got it there, though.  I debated on leaving it running, but I was afraid it would overheat. I turned it off and went in and got my groceries.  In line, I was freaking out beaause my keys weren't in my purse.  I thought I was going to have to call a friend to come get me, carry me home to get my spare keys and come back.  Scratch that.  The spare key was in my car as I had thought about leaving it running!  Luckily for me, I put my keys in the hand basket I was using so I was able to check out and got out to my car with no issues.  It started up fine and I was able to get home with no issues.  I was so happy!  I need to sit down and write pen pal lettters as I'm behind because of my beach trip.  I hope to get those done today and somehow get to the post office tomorrow to mail them and check my box for any new ones.  I might type up this batch.  I hate to send typed letters, but sometimes it's the easiest when I'm so behind!  Plus, I want to get them done so I can get them out. :)

OH! I have been using my Macbook since the beach trip and I noticed that my zero key doesn't work. Luckily there is a work around.  I can pull up an on screen keyboard and get it that way. Thank you Google! :D 

One more thing.  Did I mention that I got BACON at the store? I love me some bacon.  Bacon is life, bacon is good. lol
