Good morning from Myrtle Beach!

I'm actually posting a bit later than I have been this week. I've been up awhile, but I was doing stuff on my phone and iPod touch and didn't get over to the laptop.  Yes, I've had my coffee. :p I just went out on the balcony and it's beautiful out there today.  It's really sunny and bright and it's nice and warm.  I see a lot of people on the beach and several at the pool.  

I'm ready to go eat, but my friend is still asleep. ~_~;  It's the beach! Sleep at home, dammit!  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I might make today and stay around the hotel day.  Sit on the balcony, walk on the beach, enjoy the day.  It's so nice and pretty and I don't really have anywhere else I need to go to.  Plus, I'm really low on funds and I still have to buy stuff when I get home to make it through the month.  Hopefully I'll be able to do that!  

I'll update later and let you know what I'm doing.  It's so nice today, I should be able to get some great pictures.  Here is one I took when I first went out on the balcony this morning:

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!

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.


I knew that wouldn't last. :P

Yeah, I totally changed the layout today. I like this one a lot better.  For some reason the links at the top will only let me show four, so I put the Typepad about page and the feed link in the sidebar.  I really like this layout.  The banner picture is from Murrells Inlet South Carolina along the Marshwalk.  My friend and I usually walk along it when we visit the Dead Dog Saloon.  I liked this picture that I took in the evening after our visit.  

I hope to keep this layout for a while.  I can either do a dark background or a light one. I prefer the light one, I think.  What do you think?

In other news, I'm pup sitting.  Wait.... I told you this yesterday! :P  These are two very small dogs, so WHY did I not have any room on my bed last night?! lol  Seriously!  Crazy little pups.  They are good dogs though so that is nice.  I hate to tell their peeps that they are going to be uber spoiled when they get home. :P

I crated them when I did today's workouts.  I didn't want to have to worry about them being underfoot!  They watched me for a bit like I was crazy and then went to sleep. lol  It was kind of hilarious.  I got my workouts done and then took them outside.  I had a delicious lunch with delicious coffee.  Now I'm going to relax in my room with the air conditioner.  I need to run up to my friend's house later and check on the house.  Make sure it's locked tight and everything looks okay.  I'll probably wait until a bit later to do that.  For now, I want to relax.  Well, what I really want is to go to Starbucks and get a cascara latte. lol  I did a Star dash recently with the Starbucks app and I have a free drink on my app. :D  I love star dash times because you can earn a free drink quickly!  

Okay, I'm going to relax for a bit.  I didn't sleep well at all last night because one, it was too hot, and two, I had two heaters on my bed... I mean two dogs on my bed lol  Hopefully we can all get situated tonight and I'll sleep well.  Wish me luck!

PS I added my Pinterest feed to the sidebar but it's not showing up.  Well... if I choose just ONE picture, that will show up, but if I want to show more, nope.  I'll try to get it worked out.  I'll leave it for now.


Goodness, is it Friday?

Yeah, I guess it is.  I had the stretch videos on today's calendar.  That was nice.  I did those and ate and then I cooled down for a bit before going out and mowing my front lawn.  It's in the 90's here and it's extremely hot. I should have waited until later in the day to mow, but I wanted to get it done.  Plus, it looks like there is a storm coming up now.  So, if I had waited, the grass would have been too wet to mow.  I'm glad it's done.  The neighbor across the street lets his go for weeks without mowing it.  He finally did it yesterday and I swear there were about five inches of grass clippings in the damn street.  He really needs to mow more often.  It's so annoying!

So, I'm sitting in my room with the air conditioner and the fan going.  I've cooled down quite a bit from being outside.  When I came in, I had to take off every piece of clothing I had on as I was soaked to the skin.  I'm now in nice dry clothes and I just heard thunder! I love storms, so that makes me happy.  As long as the power doesn't go out when I need to fix dinner. lol  I might go out and sit on the porch and enjoy the storm.  I love to sit out there and see the lightning and rain.  It also smells so nice when it rains in the summer!

I am pretty comfy here in my room at the moment, so I might not make it out there :P  I really wanted to go to Starbucks earlier, but my friend didn't want to go. It was way too hot for me to drive my car over there as I didn't plan to stay.  I was just going to get a cascara latte and come back.  In her car with air, this would have been fine.  In my car without air, it would have not! :P


Early post

I'm getting my post in early as I seem to wait until the last minute and then I don't feel like making a full post.  I know I made a lot earlier posts when I was at the beach, but I was at the beach! lol No need to get up that early at home.  

I've done my workouts and now I don't have anything that I really need to do.  I will probably go out on the porch in a bit and sit for a while. Yesterday while sitting out there, I noticed some yellow jackets/wasps (Stinging insects!) kept flying near the side of the swing I was on.  I looked down a little later and found one of their little nests with quite a few guys on it.  Yikes!  I'm just glad they didn't sting me.  Today, I went out and knocked the little next off.  I felt bad making them start over, but I didn't think it was safe to be sitting so close to them.  Sorry guys!  I went back a little bit ago and they are all gone.  Hopefully they will make another nest somewhere else!  

Again, I felt bad for making them move, but I really didn't want to get stung!  I have another nest inside my kitchen window.  I noticed it a few weeks back.  I saw that the outside pane of glass is down just the slightest bit.  They have small hole to get in there.  I can watch them work safely! 

Last night we had an awesome thunderstorm.  It was lightning so much it looked like a light show.  I've never seen so much lightning!  It was really cool.  Fortunately the power didn't go out.  There were some really loud booms of thunder and I kept expecting the power to go out.


Friday again.

It was sunny this morning and then it got cloudy.  It began raining this afternoon and it's rained on and off since then.  I got my workouts in this afternoon and then had lunch.  A friend called and wanted me to run an errand with him so I did.  I was good and didn't get a shake at Cook out!  He got a peach shake at Cook out and asked if I wanted one.  I passed.  I love their orange push up shakes.  So good!  I decided I didn't need it.  If he'd offered Dairy Queen, I might not have been as good. lol

I went out to sit on my porch a bit.  While I was out there, it started to rain again.  It was light at first and then it started coming down hard.  The wind was blowing too.  It was actually pretty nice out there.  I stayed quite a while and then came back in.  I'm going to re-heat my last two pieces of leftover pizza from yesterday.  It's going to be yummy!  


Tuesday again...

Well, I didn't get to walk again today!  I had planned to, but there was bad weather.  We had some rain and some thunder storms with lots of lightning.  It wasn't really safe to walk, so we skipped it today.  I'm hoping we get to go tomorrow.  It's been too long!  I would have walked by myself a little later than our regular time, but I ended up cleaning my front porch.  It needed a good cleaning.  I went out to sit for a bit after the storms and realized how badly it needed a good scrub.  I got that done and then came in and put in a load of clothes to wash.  I just put those in the dryer.  Now I just have to wait until they are done and I can put them away.  I did my workouts at my regular time today and then I ran up to my local polling place to vote.  I got a sticker for my bullet journal. lol  :p  Is it sad that the best part of going to vote was getting a sticker? LOL  They were so slow. I was the only one there voting.  No one came in while I was voting and only one lady drove up as I was leaving.  I bet the workers were bored.  

My car did okay up there and back.  It's about half a mile up there.  I would have walked, but it was early afternoon and it was steamy hot out there.  I didn't want to walk as hot as it was.  I was glad that my car did fine.  The check engine light went off, but I know it's not fixed. lol

I may write some pen pal letters tonight.  I haven't decided yet.  I want to keep on top of them so I don't get behind and have to type all my letters!  I am sure most of my pals would prefer me typing since they've seen my handwriting. :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
