Riverwalk trail Feed

Busy Sunday

So, I got up today and decided that I would go to the Riverwalk trail to get my walk in.  I did just that and it was nice.  Of course with it being nice, there were too many people down there. ~_~;  I had my earbuds in and I just paid attention to where I was going!  I got my walk done and then got in my car to head out. I decided to run to Starbucks on my way home.  I did and they were having a deal for morning buns or something chocolate related (I don't remember what it was) for $1.  I added the morning bun to my order.  OMG It was delicious!  I'd never had one before so I was glad to try it.  I am not sure how much it normally is, but it was definitely delicious for a dollar!  I also got something different.  I almost always get hot coffee at Starbucks, but today, I got a caramel frappuccino!  Yum!  I used to get them alot, but I'm more of a hot coffee girl.  A frappuccino every now and then is a good change.

I left there and came home.  I didn't have much time to relax before it was time to do my workouts.  I got those done and did my French lesson.  I had put my bed linen in to wash before I left for my walk and I had put it in to dry when I got back.  By the time I was done with my workouts, French, and lunch, my bed linen was ready to go back on the bed.  I took a bath and washed my hair after putting the linens back on the bed.  Since it was such a nice day, I went out in the yard and sat in the swing at the back of my lot for a bit.

I didn't go back out after that.  I stayed in and did other things that needed to be done around the house.  Tomorrow, I have a doctor's appointment so I won't be walking at my regular time.  I plan to walk afterwards.  Probably after I get done there and come home and have lunch.  We'll see how the time goes.

Tonight, I sat down and wrote pen pal letters.  I have a small stack to go out in tomorrow's mail.  I'll carry them with me when I go to the doctor's and mail them while I am out.  My gas is getting low, so I will need to do everything in one trip.  My gas light came on last night, but I had run an errand for a friend and he gave me $5.  I got that much gas in my car.  What I have should last for a few more trips.  I hope!

 


Walks are good.

So, today, it was sunny and much nicer weather wise than yesterday.  It was a bit warmer too.  I think it got up to 60!  I got in my regular walk and came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts. I did those and then did my French lesson and then fixed lunch.  I relaxed a bit and then my friend came to pick me up.  We went to the Riverwalk trail and walked.  We got a later start and it was getting quite dark as were heading back to the car.  After we left there, we went to a local restaurant for dinner.  I wasn't expecting that, so that was a nice surprise.

After eating, he dropped me home and I've been doing things around the house.  I worked on one room that needed a bit of straightening up.  I got that done.  I don't have any other things that I need to do tonight. I'm going to get off of my computer and play some Pocket Camp and then finish my current read.  I'm probably going to finish it tonight and then I'll start on the other one I borrowed from the Kindle store.

I'm extremely tired at the moment, so I might not get anything else done except crashing.  Zzzzz


Two walks today?

Yes, I did!  I went on my usual walk and then came home and relaxed a bit because I knew my friend was coming to pick me up for walk number two!  We went down to the Riverwalk trail and walked.  Afterwards, we got some food and then I came home and did my workouts.  I am tired! I am hoping to sleep really well tonight!  

I am going to post this and then play some Pocket Camp and read more on the book I'm currently on.  It's a true crime book about the 'Pizza bomber' It's pretty interesting.  It's funny, I haven't heard about this case before I found the ebook at the library.  After I finish it, I'm not sure what I'm going to read next.  I am still thinking of giving Kindle Unlimited a try.  I just need to see what books are available.  I guess since it's free for thirty days, now would be a good time. :P  I'll let you know how I like it.

 


Snowy day?

Oh boy, yes, it is!  I was so not expecting this.  So, yesterday, I noticed that they had put down some stuff on the ramps and things.  I thought, hmm, is it supposed to be bad weather?  I looked it up and saw a warm today forecast for today and possible light snow on Saturday.  Well, I get up today and it's overcast, but no weather.  I go about my morning things and then check my phone and it says it's snowing.  I get up and look out and sure enough, it is!  I decided that since it was light and  not really sticking, I would go for my walk.  I did, but it was COLD.  I also had to use my umbrella because the snow picked up quite a bit!  By the time I got back home, the snow was starting to stick on the grassy areas.  Right now it's on the grassy areas and the road!  It's also still snowing and it's supposed to continue until tomorrow!  I was totally surprised.  One, we don't get snow very often if at all here, and two, it's early for snow.  I love to sit in my room at my desk and look out at it.  I'm doing that now while typing up this post.  I also have a cup of coffee. :D

Nothing like sitting in your room with a wonderful cup of coffee while watching it snow outside.  If it continues all night and into tomorrow, I'll have all day to enjoy it.  I won't be walking tomorrow as the sidewalks will be covered and that is what I mainly walk on.  If I was still able to go to the walking trail, it would be okay. They usually scrape the trail.  Oh well, hopefully I won't miss very many days.  I've just gotten back into walking everyday and I don't want to stop again!

In other news, I might just have to go out and play in it tomorrow!  I adore snow, I love to watch it fall and I love to look at it.  I also like it to clear off the roads and sidewalks asap! ;P  I am good on food and supplies, so I didn't have to go to the store, thank goodness.  Around here, if they mention a snow FLURRY people go insane and stock up like it's a forty day snow storm and they are going to starve.

I also have chocolate chip cookies! :D  My friend stopped by on his way home from work and brought me a package of them.  They go well with coffee, you know. :p  I told him that after my walk, I had come home and drank some coffee to warm up and ate my last two cookies.  He was nice and brought me more.  Yay!  Of course if we get 3-6 inches like they are predicting, I'm going to need more cookies! lol

 


Monday and a new camera!

My friend and I got to walk today.  As we were heading for the trail, he showed me his new digital camera.  Then, he asks me if I know what is different about this one from all his others. I didn't.  It's mine! :D  He gave me a cool Fuji digital camera with 30X zoom.  I can't wait to use it at the beach. :)  I took a few test pictures tonight and I'll take more tomorrow.  Here is one from tonight:

Not very exciting, but there you go. :p


So tired!

I got to bed way too late last night.  I've been feeling it all day.  I did my workouts and got in a walk though!  It was overcast and it had even rained a little bit earlier in the day but it was dry for the entire walk.  It was almost deserted on the trail.  I think everyone thought it was going to rain.  It was pretty nice to be so deserted, actually.  I wish it could always be like that!

I am really, really tired.  I am tempted to just go to bed!  I am sure if I get a good night's sleep tonight, I'll be back on track tomorrow.  Hopefullly I'll be awake enough to post a better post than this. 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


Layouts!

I'm looking online for inspiration for weekly layouts for my new bujo.  I want to do a two page spread of two weeks.  I have been doing a two page, one week spread.  I want this bujo to last a long time as I've spent a lot of time setting it up so far.  I've found several different layouts that I like.  I just have to choose one and use it!  I have a couple that I'm going back and forth between.  I might do one for one side and the other for the other.  That way I can see them side by side and see how they work for me.  

In other news, I went for a walk tonight.  I just got home a few minutes ago.  My friend needed to run by a store and I went with him. Then he wanted to eat dinner, and it was time for my dinner!  We went to Cici's.   I probably ate a little more than I should have, but it was good!  I am now home and relaxing.  I'm going to put those two spreads in my bujo and see which one I like the best.  I'll be sure to share them soon. :)


Another walk?

Yes, I went for another walk today.  It was fun, but it was a lot harder than yesterday.  I was sore from the walk yesterday.  Plus my abs were feeling the #1000abchallenge I did yesterday!  My friend has other plans tomorrow, so we probably won't walk tomorrow.  I might try and go myself. I'm not sure yet.  It was nice to be walking again!

I did my workouts today and except for the cardio video, they were all upper body.  That was good because everything else was sore. lol  I need to do some work on my bullet journal, and then I think I'm going to soak in a hot tub of water and then relax for the rest of the evening.  I ate dinner a bit early tonight because I was really hungry after walking.  I'll probably snack on a Luna bar later.  I have a few of the white chocolate macadamia ones left.  They are so GOOD!
