Walk today, not tomorrow.

My walk today was nice, but it was a bit cooler than yesterday.  I got home and relaxed for a bit. I had thought I'd go to Starbucks, but my friend texted about going to Roma and getting pizza.  I am not going to turn down free pizza. lol We went and I have two slices for tomorrow.  (We split a pizza)   It's supposed to be nasty tomorrow, so I'm not planning on walking.  We are under a winter storm warning.  It's actually doing something outside right now, but I think it's only rain.  It's supposed to turn to snow and freezing rain and sleet and all that other good stuff overnight.  In any case, tomorrow will not be a walk day.

I'm still sore from moving my room around, but it's much better today.  It would have been even better if I had been able to take a hot bath.  Soaking in a hot bath is blessed relief when I'm sore.  It's also just nice.  Oh well.  I guess I'll get my water heater fixed by the summer. ~_~;   

I did a little more straightening in my room.  Just moving things around and organizing things better.  I like it.  Everything is so neat and in it's place.  I love it when everything is organized.  In moving my room around and cleaning under the bed, I found my light up Kindle case.  I found it at Goodwill some time ago and I couldn't figure out where the heck I put it.  It was stored in a box under my bed.  The case is pink leather and it has a built in light that you pull out when you need it.  My Kindle is one of the older ones and it has no backlight.  I like that about it.  The light will be handy if I want to read in low light. It's a nice case and it's pretty too. :p

 


It's done!

What is done, you ask?  Well, my room.  I decided to change it around and I did that this afternoon.  It took longer than I planned, but it's done.  I am so sore from moving the heavy furniture.  Also, the dust under things was horrible.  I cleaned the heck out of everything.  Everything gets so dusty when the furniture stays in one place for too long.  I cleaned all that out and it was nuts.  I'm glad it's done.  I hate all that dust, but it's all cleaned up now. My arms and back are so sore.

  I got in my walk today.  It was sunny and not too cold.  It was in the mid 50's and I actually walked without my jacket.  It's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow, so no short sleeves!  The day after that, we are under a winter weather watch.  I think it's only supposed to be freezing rain. If that is the case, I'll miss another day walking.  Maybe I can convince myself to use the treadmill.  

I am almost done re-watching the Simpsons episodes.  I just watched one where Homer made me laugh out loud, literally.  He said, "Why would I want to go to a strip club? I'm married to a naked lady."  Homer is hilarious.  When I get through all the episodes, I am not sure what I'll watch next.  Maybe I'll watch LOST again.  


Oopsie

I didn't forget to post yesterday, I just didn't get around to it.  It rained yesterday and today, so no walks for me.  It's not supposed rain tomorrow, so I should be a go for walking!  I don't want to miss another day.  I didn't feel all that great yesterday or today, so the two days off were kind of nice.  My foot has been giving me some issues again so two days rest was probably a good thing.

I didn't make it to Starbucks this weekend like I planned.  I might go one night this week and carry my laptop and letters.  We'll see how that goes.  I haven't been inside to stay in so long. I'm going to be so disappointed if I go over there and can't find anywhere to sit!  I am hoping it will be like when I went over Wednesday night.  


Mmm two drinks...

Yesterday when I tried the drink machine at my turn around point, it said it was sold out.  I wasn't expecting to get a drink today, but I tried anyway since it was warm again. It actually gave me a drink and an extra. Yay! lol  It's always nice to get an extra.  The weather was nice again today, as I've said, but it's supposed to cool back down tomorrow.  D'oh!

I didn't make it to Starbucks tonight.  I had really thought I would and then I just didn't go.  Oh well, maybe sometime this weekend.  I might just hit the drivethru tomorrow.  Of course, knowing me, I might just skip it all. :P  I still don't have hot water and I just washed my hair.  That was painful.  I didn't warm the water up first.  Brrr!  I was able to get by with it because it was warmer today.  I certainly wouldn't have attempted it tomorrow! YIKES! LOL! 


Warm days are so nice.

It was really nice for today's walk.  I started out in a t-shirt and hoodie, but I took my hoodie off before too long into the walk.  It was much more fun to walk when it's warm.  I had enough change to pick up a Coke at the drink machine at my turn around point and planned to get a Coke.  The machine was sold out again. Phooey!

I got home and relaxed. I had thought about going to Starbucks tonight and staying awhile.  Then, I realized that it was happy hour and they are usually busy on those days.  It is also Valentine's day.  I figured they might be slow because of that, but who knows.  I might go tomorrow.  I wish I had know last night that it was going to be that slow.  There were literally only two people in there! My favorite table was free. :(  I can almost guarantee that when I go again to stay awhile, I won't find a single table open. That is just the way it goes.


Starbucks!

I got four of the five die cut Valentine's Starbucks cards.  I went over to Target to get the one I missed.  They were completely out of the die cut cards.  I got a cascara latte and then went to the regular Starbucks.  The place was practically deserted. ~_~;;;;;;  Figures!  I got the card I needed and eleven other cards I didn't have. Yay!  They also had some adorable ceramic gift card holders. They look like a Starbucks bag.  I got one for my collection.  It was on sale, too. Yay!  I took a picture of the 'new' cards and the cool ceramic 'bag'.

I was glad to find that Valentines card at the top left.  They had two cards this year.  This 'paper' one and a regular plastic one.  I was lucky to get both.  I already had the plastic one.  While I was out, I went by Office Depot and picked up another 25 pack of the business card holders because I actually used all the ones from the last pack!  

I got in my walk today, too.  It was a bit windy, but I made it through.  They were calling for up to 50mph winds.  Luckily it only kicked up a few times.  I actually used bobby pins to keep my hat on. lol


When you REALLY want a hot bath.....

I rented a hotel room for the night just so I could have a hot bath. lol! Seriously.  I found a great deal on a local place and I also got 10% back with ebates, so I booked it.  I am in the room now.  It's not a huge room, but it's the perfect size for me.  My silly but forgot to bring a few things I needed so I ran back home to get them.  Easy to do when you are in the same town. lol . I got my supper early so I wouldn't have to go back out again.  I just picked up some food and brought it back.  The room has a mini fridge and a microwave, so I brought some drinks from home.  I also brought one of my Starbucks tumblers for in room coffee.... Wait.... I don't remember seeing a coffee maker. DOH! Double D'oh! lol . There is no coffee maker in here. Ahhhhh!!!!!!!  That just means I will have to stop at Starbucks on my way home tomorrow morning. :p

This is a nice room for the price.  I have a small bathroom, a desk, a sofa, and a bed.  It's pretty nice.  I had already planned to skip tomorrow's walk because it's supposed to rain all day.  This was the perfect night to do this.  I already took a bath, but I might take another since it's paid for until morning. LOL!  I'm considering this a mini vacation for myself!  It's pretty nice to get away from home for a night.  It's back to normal living tomorrow. :p . I just wish I had some change so I could raid the snack machines!


Fossil purse

I didn't get to take a picture of the 'new' Fossil purse outside today because it was overcast and cold out there.  I just decided to use one of the ones I took inside last night and hope it looks okay.  I love this purse.  It's a crossbody and it falls at the exact right spot.  It's also got enough room for everything I need to carry and it's lightweight.  The leather itself is so soft and smooth.  I just want to keep touching it! lol    The front has a small zipper pocket on the flap.  Under the flap is a pocket and the bag opening.  That has a zipper pocket in it and two pockets on the other side.  The back of the bag has a little organizer part.  It has lots of pockets, credit card slots, and a zipper pocket.  I love all the pockets as I like to have everything organized.  It's such a cool bag.  When I was researching it, I found a picture of the same bag in pink.  I would love to have one of those, too. :P . Here is the handbag:

By the way, the picture does not do it justice.


Why me?

My friend, the one that does so much for me, mentioned he would like a shake.  Well, I decided to go and get him one.  I was in line almost 30 minutes! The line did not want to move and the two in front of me where being asses.  I finally got through the line and dropped it off.  I'm home now and I'm watching the episode of the Simpsons where Homer gets addicted to Stranded (aka LOST) . Such a funny episode.  Especially since I loved the hell out of LOST and watched it religiously.  I love the way Homer gets hooked on the show and doesn't want to do anything but watch it. 

Today's walk was nice, but it was a lot cooler out there.  I went from walking in the 60's and 70's to 40ish and it had a 'feel like' temperature of lower.  It wasn't too bad, though.  I bundled up appropriately so I wasn't cold.  I came home and watched for the mailman.  Why? My 'new' Fossil bag came.  I love it. It's soooooooo soft and it's the perfect size.  I took a few pictures inside, but the lighting sucks in my house and it didn't come out right. I'll try to take outside pictures tomorrow.
