Lazy day for sure!

I didn't walk or do my workouts today!  I took the day off of everything.  I need to take a break every now and then!  I will get right back to my normal schedule tomorrow.  I just didn't feel great when I got up today so I decided to take a break.  I did and it was pretty nice.  I might have gone for a walk later this afternoon, but my friend was going to come and look at my car.  He was able to put a brake on where mine fell off a few weeks ago.  After he did that, we drove it for a short distance to make sure it was okay.  He said it would be okay for me to drive it. YAY!  I can go get some things done tomorrow evening. ^_^

I would have gotten a few things done tonight, but it was after 9 when we got back from testing the car.  I was low on gas, so I got $5.00 worth while we were out.  That way I'll be able to go to the grocery store and the recycle center soon!  I usually go to the recycle center on Monday because it's empty then.  I'll try to remember to walk past the containers on my walk tomorrow.  If it's stuffed, I'll wait, but if it's not too bad, I'll go ahead and go.  My recycling it piling up like crazy.  

I'm so glad to be able to drive my car again.  I hate not being able to go and get things when I need them.  It's so much easier to run to the store for myself and not have to ask someone else to carry me!


What a good day!

Why?  Well, I got in a good walk.  My Fitbit still doesn't count as many steps as my old one, but that is okay.  I'll just have to work harder to get in my steps!  I came home and did my workouts.  After those, I did my French lessons.  I had lunch and waited for the mail man. He dropped off my Fitbit bands.  The teal is gorgeous. I'm pretty sure it's the exact same shade as the Fitbit branded band.  The black is nice too.  I installed the Teal to see how well it fit.  It went on easily.  It looks good and feels good too.  I didn't even mind the regular band. I thought it was comfy.  I took a few pictures to share of the new bands and then what the back looks like on my arm:

 

They are really soft and flexible.  I like them.  I'll order more.   It will be nice to have bands in all colors for different outfits. :p

In other news, I went to the recycle center tonight. I've waited way too long to do that.  While I was out, I got some gas in my car and put some air in my tires.  They were all lower than I thought they were. I'm glad I did it.  After getting the gas, I decided to head to Starbucks.  I got in the drive-thru and asked if they had the cascara syrup.  They did! :D  I guess you know what I got.  I was so happy.  The barista said they'd had it for a little while now.  I'm so glad. I just love the cascara lattes. Yummy!

I left Starbucks and headed home.   I didn't have anywhere else to go, and I didn't get a lot of gas and it has to last until next month.  I don't have a lot, so hopefully it will get me through. I remembered that when I went to the grocery store that they had given me a coupon for up to 3 lbs of bananas.  I got those on my walk today.  I will be eating banana sammiches soon. The bananas are almost ripe.  I love it when they give me coupons for free goodies.

 


Starbucks!

Yeah, this post has nothing to do with Starbucks.  I really wanted to go over there today but I didn't.  Okay, on to the post. :p  I am drinking coffee as I post this, though. It's coffee made at home and it's good, but it's not a latte and it isn't Starbucks.

Today was cool and overcast.  It rained some too.  When did it rain the most?  When I was walking, of course!  I had to hold my umbrella during my whole walk. It was so annoying.  It hurts my back to hold the umbrella when I walk.  If I hadn't skipped my walk yesterday, I would have skipped this one.  I got home and had some coffee and a chocolate chip cookie as a treat before doing my workouts.  There was six on today's calendar.  Yikes!  I did those and then did my French and then had a few minutes to relax before fixing lunch. 

I loaded my car up after that and headed to the recycle center.  I've been meaning to do it for the past few weeks.  I always go on Monday's because they have emptied them on Monday and I can put my stuff in without a lot of trouble.  It wasn't raining when I recycled!  I got that done and thought about going to Starbucks, but then decided to just head home.  I might go later this week with my letters.  

I didn't sleep well at all last night.  I didn't have enough coffee yesterday.  I know what you are thinking.  Coffee is supposed to wake you up.  Well, I'm totally backwards.  Things that are supposed to put you to sleep wake me up.  Things that are supposed to wake you up put me to sleep! LOL  I am going to sleep well tonight.  I just had my fifth cup of coffee. :p  

 


Hmmm

So, I'm actually posting three days in a row. Yay! I got in a good walk today.  I was really feeling pretty good while walking.  I got home and did four of my five workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  The 100 burpee burnout was on today's workout calendar. YIKES!  That makes twice this month.  I did it, though! :)

I have been working on laundry today.  I am finishing up the bed linens that my friend gave me.  I'm also working on a load of my clothes.  I need to get those out of the dryer as soon as they are done.  I had a huge load of clothes.  I shouldn't wait so long. :p I got to drive my car again today. It started up just fine.  I had to inflate the tire on the front passenger side.  It goes flat easily.  I need to replace it as soon as I can.  

I got the tire inflated and loaded 12 bags of recyclables into my car.  I finally got all my recycling done! Yay!  Now that my car seems to be doing okay, hopefully I can get to the center once a month like I used to.  Funny thing happened when I was at the center today.  I was dropping my papers into the container and I dropped the bag in too.  The bins were emptied today so the bag fell all the way down.  It was a reusable grocery bag, so I wanted it!   I did some interesting moves to get up on the side of the bin and fish out my bag.  There were other people at the bins too. ^^; Oh well, I have my bag and I'm so happy to have 7 months of recycling out of my house!

I got a letter from a pen pal today.  It was one of the people that I wrote to hoping to become pals. She wrote me back and wants to be pals, so that is great!  I am currently printing out some really pretty stationary.  I looked up free printables and found a site with a lot of different printables.  Lined or unlined.  My favorite is a pansy print with lines. I am printing out 15 copies for use on my pen pal letters.  I've been wanting to get more stationary for letters.  Since it's a while before I can buy some, I figured I'd print some cool stuff in the meantime.  Now if I could just find some really cool Adventure Time printable stationary!  That would rock! Speaking of Adventure Time, my new pal drew an adorable picture of Jake on my envelope! :D  I thought that was so cool.  Okay, enough rambling.  I'll go for now.  I hope to post again tomorrow. :)


Whee!

I got in my walk today.  I came home and did three of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did the other two.  I then got ready and went to my car.  With fingers crossed, I started it.  It started right up! YAY!  My friend suggested that since the battery had been so low that if I drove it, to drive it for a while.  I drove around for about 35 minutes.  It seems to be doing fine.  I was a happy camper!  If it seems okay tomorrow, I'll drive to the recycle center and finish what I started yesterday.  

I would have done that today, but the bins are full.  They usually pick up and empty them on Monday, so I should be able to go. It's been nice today so I've been getting things done.  It's nice to be able to run all over my house getting my chores done while not freezing! :p  I have my bed linen in the dryer and another load of linens in the wash.  My friend gave me a huge bag of sheets and pillowcases.  They are all old and extremely soft.  I'm in love!  I've always gone to thrift stores when I needed new pillowcases because old ones are really soft. After I finish this, I need to get a few more things done.  

 


Well, there I go again!

Today, I got in my walk.  It was in the 60's and it was NICE out there!!!  A friend was coming over to work on my car, but he didn't get here until after my walk.  I came home and did four of my five workouts.  I ate lunch and then went out to see how he was doing.  He did a few things on the car and then got it running.  I asked if he'd consider driving it for a bit and I could drop off some of my piles of recycling I've been needing to recycle.  The last time I got to the recycle center was July!  I took a LOT of bags today.  As many as the car would hold.  I still quite a few bags left, but at least a lot of them are taken care of.  

Hopefully I'll be able to get my car going again tomorrow. The car had been overheating and that is why I stopped driving it last year.  He did a few things on it and I don't know what he did, but it didn't overheat once while we were out driving it around.  He actually drove around a bit too.  He even went through a drive thru and it didn't overheat.  I'm hoping that the battery is still good.  We tried to charge it up a lot today.  If if cranks tomorrow, I might try to drive it for a bit.  I hope he fixed whatever the problem was.  It would be SO NICE to be able to drive again!

I'm a bit behind on everything today.  I did my last workout after he left and got in my picture for the challenge I'm doing on Insta.  Now, I'm sitting at the computer typing this and catching up on all things interwebs. :p  I got two new penpal letters today, too! :)  I need to take tomorrow evening to catch up on writing some letters. I need to eat some dinner, wash my hair, and post my pictures to Insta.  I'm all off schedule. HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
