Change is good...

I changed the background, some of the colors, and a few of the fonts on the blog.  I like it so far, but who knows if I'll like it tomorrow.  I haven't done anything on NaNo today except open the program I write in.  I went for my walk earlier,  I came home and did my workouts.  My friends invited me up for Thanksgiving dinner, so I went up there.  I stayed a while as it wasn't ready when I got there.  Then, I rode with my friends to Gamestop.  That was insanity and went back and stayed in the car! LOL!  

Now I'm home and I need to do something for today's NaNo, but I just want to go to bed.  I will try to write at least a few words.  I'm so far ahead, it won't be a bad thing if I don't write much today. I just want to write something.  


Getting to the end

I'm getting really close to finishing NaNo for this year.  I'm now at 48110 words! Less than 2000 and I'll have completed NaNo for this year. I only wrote a little under 1400 today.  I am still not sure if I plan to write more towards the end or go back and add to the earlier stuff.  Today was all new stuff at the end.  We'll see how it goes tomorrow.  I do plan to write tomorrow even though it's Thanksgiving here in the US.  

I got in my walk today and did my workouts.  Yes, I plan to do all that tomorrow too.  I'm not sure if I'd going anywhere.  My friend's that usually invite me haven't this year.  I'm not sure if they are even doing anything themselves.   I actually don't care either way.  Although, I wish I had been able to get the stuff to make myself a hash brown casserole or something good for tomorrow.  Oh well!  I'll have coffee.

Speaking of coffee, I ordered some gifts for my friends and I got myself a cute coffee gift basket at the same time.  It came today and it's so damn cute!

It had five little things of coffee, two packages of shortbread, two little jars of preserves, some candies, and a cute snowman mug.  The basket is cute.  I like baskets,and I like snowmen.  I LOVE coffee! I just hope it's all good.  I am not opening any until I finish what I have at the moment.  OH  There is also a coffee spoon that has chocolate and caramel on it to stir into your coffee.  Yummy!

 

 


NaNo I don't want to WritMo!

I'm in the home stretch, but I am not sure what to do to finish. I am actually at a good point for the book to end, but I'm several thousand words short.  What I think I'm going to do is finish it tomorrow and then go back and add a few scenes to early days to make it to 50,000 words.  I think that would be best.  I know there are a few parts that I need more things added.  I wrote 1667 today.  I am going to look over the earlier stuff and write myself some notes tonight to add content to the previous days.  I will get to my goal and win again this year!

My walk today was okay. I didn't have to go all the way to the post office, so that was nice. I'm glad I didn't because today was cardio on the workout calendar.  Yikes! LOL  That was hard and it got me all tired and sweaty.  It was good though.  

I did start on the second story in Strange Weather last night.  It's really good.  After I post this and do my French lesson, I'm going to read more of that.  I'm yawning my head off at the moment, so let me get my French done and get my Kindle before I fall asleep!


Almost there!

I'm now less than 5000 words from completely NaNo for my second year in a row!  I didn't write as much tonight as I usually do. It was my lowest word count of the month, but I got some done.  I have been so tired all day.  I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  I finally did get back to sleep and it was time to get up.  I've been cranky and out of sorts all day!

I walked to the post office and mailed my one pen pal letter.  I had just one in my box!  At least I did have one, right?  I walked home, but with the longer walk, I got back later than usual.  I could have done my workouts, but I was really tired and sore so I decided I'd do them later.  I relaxed and then had lunch. I rested a bit after lunch and then did my workouts.  I was glad to get those done. I had almost been tempted to skip them.  I did those and had some dinner.  I fixed some coffee and sat down to do today's NaNo.  Like I said, it was a short day's write, but I got some written.  I only wrote 1164 words today.  I'm just over 45,000 though, so that is good!

I finished the first short story in Strange Weather a few nights ago but haven't started on the second one. I may do that tonight.  I"m currently listening to Full Dark, No Stars on my walk.  I finished 1922 today and started on Big Driver.  Full Dark, No Stars is excellent.  All four stories are good ones.  My favorite being 1922.

 


Saturday sabotage!

Okay, so maybe not that serious.  I got up and got ready for my walk today.  I heard a loud noise outside and thought to myself, what the heck was that!?  I looked out and didn't see anything so I turned around and then I noticed that the light was off.  I thought I had turned it on.  I looked around and noticed that none of my displays were lit.  Yup, something knocked the power out!

I went for my walk and hoped that it would be on when I got back. I wanted to get home, drink a cup of coffee and relax before doing my workouts.  The power was still out!  I texted a friend and he suggested we go eat since my power was out.  I couldn't fix coffee or do my workouts without power, so I said, yes!  We went to Reidsville, NC to a pizza place called Carmela's.  They have delicious pizza.  Afterwards, we wanted ice cream and I wanted coffee! LOL!  We went to the McDonald's.  He got ice cream and he got me one of their caramel macchiatos.  It wasn't bad!  

We came back to town and I came in and the lights were back. Yay!  I put my leftover pizza in the fridge and came to my room and did my workouts.  I got those done and then read some on Not Always Right.  I ate my leftovers for dinner and then did my NaNo for today. I got over 2000 words today and I am now past the 40,000 mark!  Yay!  All I have left to do is my French lesson on Duolingo and then I'm going to read with my Kindle until bed. ^_^


Dodge had a good time, too.

I am working on NaNo for today and I only have 631 words so far. I'm so not feeling it today.  I ate something that didn't agree with me earlier and I don't even feel like drinking coffee at the moment!  Serious business, people!  I hope to at least write enough to get to 1667 for the day.  I am just not in the mood to write, I think.

I got in my walk and it was cooler today than it was yesterday but it was still pretty decent.  I came home and did my workouts.  It was stretch day and those are always nice.  I just wish I could get into splits!  I've been trying for such a long time.  I'm just going to have to do some kind of stretching everyday.  Maybe I can start doing that bedtime stretch routine of Cassey's that I used to do.  That or just get out my mat and stretch some everyday.

I guess I better get back to NaNo.  I started Strange Weather by Joe Hill last night and it's really good so far.  After that, I am not sure what will be next.  I finished listening to Cell on today's walk and started on Full Dark No Stars.  I love that one a lot!


New tags!

My new tags came today and I had to put them on the car.  I washed my car and then put them on.  I drove to dry the car and ended up at the drive thru at Starbucks. :p  Well, I had Starbux tags, I had to go to Starbucks with them, right?! :D  So, I took a couple of pictures. One a close up of the tag, one of the car with the tag with Starbucks in the background, and one of my drink.  It was a grande Cascara latte.  Sadly, it seems they are fazing out my beloved Cascara syrup. NOOOOO! :(  I'll just have to switch to caramel macciattos when they do!  Here are the pictures I took:

 

 So, there you go.  What do you think?  I love them. ^_^

I got my walk in and my workouts done. I just need to do NaNo.  I am really ahead on NaNo, so I don't mind waiting a little later to get started.  I hope to get at least 2000 words tonight, if not, it's okay.  Like I said, I'm way ahead.  I went to the grocery store and found a some Starbucks coffee that was K-cups with flavor packets. IT's Caffe Latte in caramel.  I am going to fix a cup to drink during NaNo.  I hope it's delicious as it sounds!


Almost at 35,000!

Yes, I'm only about three hundred words away and I'll hit the thirty five thousand mark on NaNo!  I just finished my writing for today.  I am actually doing it earlier tonight.  I had so wanted to go to Starbucks and write tonight, but I didn't go.  They were having double star day, and that would have been nice, but I just never got up and went!  Oh well.  I did have a lot of delicious coffee at home. :p

I went on my walk today and then did my workouts.  It was ab day.  That was painful, but it was a reprieve from the burpees of yesterday! LOL!  I am glad I didn't have to do any with any of today's workouts.  Tomorrow is total body torture day, so who knows there may be burpees. Yikes!

I actually did go to bed earlier last night, but I still feel like I didn't sleep much at all!  I am sleepy now.  I might have dinner and then climb in bed with the Kindle and read until time for bed.  I am not sure yet.  I don't have anything else I need to do today.  I have to decide on dinner.  I have no clue what I want to fix!  Oh well, I'll figure it out!  For now, I'm going to read more on Not Always Right and then worry about dinner!


YIKES!

Okay, so I'm sitting here just reading through Not Always Right and I realize something. I haven't done anything with NaNo today.  Oops!  I guess I should be doing that.  I don't remember what I wrote last night at Starbucks, so I'll have to go and look over it so I'll know where to go from there.  It's been a long day.  I walked further today because I wanted to mail my letters and I wanted to check my box.  Sadly, I only had one letter.  Phooey!  Oh well.   I was walking pretty fast.  I got home in time to rest a few minutes before doing today's workouts.  Those weren't too bad.  Tomorrow, the 100 burpee burnout is on the calendar. :( Boooo!  

I need to do my French lesson and get to NaNo. I'm really ahead on NaNo, so if I don't write much today, it won't be such a big deal. I plan to write some though!  I'm just going to grab some coffee and settle in for that!  My order of Starbucks cards come today and the stack is almost as big as the one I picked up last night in Starbucks. lol  Here they are.  The top pic and the left side picture are yesterday's cards, the right picture is today's.  My collection is growing fast!

Edit at 10:23 pm. I wrote 2213 words tonight. I'm good. :)


Guess where I am?

Yes, I'm a Starbucks. What a surprise, eh? :p  I came over to get my pen pal letters and NaNo done.  I have written two of my three letters and written over 2300 words for NaNo. I figured I would do my blog post while here, too.  I might write the other letter here and I might wait until I get home.  I'm not sure yet.  I was going pretty good on my writing when a friend kept interrupting me with texts!  That got me off track for a bit, but he finally stopped and I got back into it.  Over two thousands words means I got back on track! lol  I probably won't write anymore on NaNo tonight.  That is a good place to stop.

 I got in my walk today and it was cold, but not too bad.  I came home and did my workouts after that.  I had lunch and then packed up my messenger bag and headed over here.  When I got here, it was about 4:45.  They are doing a promotion from the 9th - 13th of bogof on the holiday drinks.  This place was ROLLING when I got here. I didn't even think about that crazy promo before I came.  I had to wait in a loooong line to buy my drink and a longer one to pick up my drink!  There was absolutely no where to sit either.  Luckily, I saw two girls sitting at a little table and they didn't have drinks. I was hoping they were just sitting waiting on their drinks.  They were!  When they got up to get them, I made sure they weren't going to sit back down and grabbed their table! :P

Not my favorite table, but hey, it was somewhere to sit.  It's cleared out  alot in here now, but there are still a lot of people at the tables.  I thought the guy who was sitting at my favorite table had left.  I saw him get up, put on his jacket and head away from his table.  I packed up to move to it and saw his stuff was still on it. Oops!  The end chair on the big table was open, so I just sat here.  I felt sort of silly.  Oh well.  This seat isn't too bad and it's close to my favorite spot in case he does leave. :p

By the way, my Starbucks got in their Holiday cards.  You should see the huge ass stack of them I got. I'll take a picture when I get home if I can get them all in the picture. LOL I stopped counting at thirty something.  Really!   was so happy because I was afraid our Starbucks wouldn't get the whole set.  I think I got them all except for the ones in the packaging.  I am pretty sure you can't get those without loading them.  Some of them are just multiples of the ones that are single but some are the shaped ones.  I would love to have some of those too, but I will have to check and see.  I'm pretty sure though, those are buy them only.  I must have looked like some kind of weirdo going to the gift card board and grabbing a handful. :p

Anyway.  I have done NaNo, I have written all but one letter.  All I need to do when I get home is my French lesson.  I'd do that here, but I don't think I have my earbuds with me.  I have my bed linen in the dryer at home so I should be able to go home and put it back on the bed, do my French and relax.  I want to read more on Sleeping Beauties. I finally made it past the half way point last night.  It's getting more interesting as I go!
