Sunday

I got so much done today.  I washed a load of laundry yesterday and I put it away today.  I washed my bed linen and my hair.  I also washed a week's worth of dishes.  I swear I'm going to keep them washed as I go and it never happens. D'oh!  I've been playing special Zeeops in Munzee so I ran out today to do the daily 'mission'.  It's fun and I earn things to make playing more fun.  

Today, yes on Sunday, I got a package in the mail. It was a package from Amazon.  I decided that I wanted Moleskine cahiers in my new TN instead of the Moleskines volants.  The cahiers are pale yellow and so pretty.  I also printed some things to put in the 'dashboard' I made.  I'll take pictures in good lighting tomorrow.  I think it looks so pretty!


D'oh!

I meant to post yesterday. I had pictures and everything!  I got busy right near midnight and it was after midnight when I realized I hadn't posted.  So, I'll do it now!  Yesterday, I went to Angler's park while i was out.  I thought I had taken more pictures, but I only had two when I checked later.  Here are those two:

Being out there made me want to start walking again! It was a nice day, not hot and not cold. Perfect for walking. Hopefully, I can get back to walking soon. Today I've been writing.  Not my stuff for NaNo, but some other stuff I have worked on in the past. I'm getting ready for NaNo! I'm having fun with this story.  It was one I had started a long time ago and I pulled it out.  I opened Scrivener and posted the original bit in there and then I went through and pasted sections and re-wrote parts and added parts. It's shaping up to be pretty fun! I am taking a bit of a break at the moment, but I hope to add more to it tonight.


Decision made!

Well, at least I'm almost positive!  I am going to do book two of my skating story for NaNoWriMo. (I created the first book in April for CampNaNo) I have announced it at NaNo and I created a cover for the book.  It's going to follow my skating pair as they spend a summer at their exclusive boarding school.  They'll train all summer and maybe have a short vacation.  They are training for the Olympics in the coming winter games.  I have some ideas for their summer and as of now, they are not going to have a very relaxing summer!

I have two scenarios in mind and I have to pick between the two. There is either going to be a serious injury or a stalking case.  The main female character had a bit of a stalker in the first book but he was sent away to get help. He may just get released without her knowledge.  The other scenario is the male skater (her partner on and off the ice) is going to have a serious injury that is going to put their Olympic goals in jeopardy.  I still have a little over two weeks to go so I'll be trying to work out what is going to happen.  I do want them to have some fun over the summer break since they will be staying at the school for the majority and training, training, training!

As of now, the book will be called, "Summer At Meadows Academy."  That is the name of their school.  It may change depending on how the story goes.  I am ready to start now and I am also not even remotely ready to start now! I may do some side writing of other stuff just to get myself in the mood and going.  I have been re-reading a lot of my old fiction stories and they are making me want to write about that duo again, too! I might do that just for fun and to warm up my writing for NaNo! 


Traveler's Notebook in the park

I finally got to take some pictures of my new TN and I also took a few photos of the Foxy with the new 'dashboard' I created!  To get more info on each picture just click on it. It explains what is in each picture.  I hope you enjoy!

A little Prep

I am still not sure if I'm doing my zombie fic or the skating fic, but I am working on full character profiles for my skating characters.  I'm probably going with that to do for NaNo. If not that, a whole new one.  I do want to write more on my zombie fic, but I'm not sure I want to do that for this year's NaNo.  I might re-read the first four and see.  I have a lot of ideas for the skating story, so ...  Yes, I still have no clue which to do. :P

I had all the stuff in one notebook stack in Evernote.  I fixed that by making two stacks in Evernote.  One for the zombie books and one for the skating books.  It makes it easier to keep up with everything.  I love Evernote so much!  It's so dang handy!  I still use an Evernote template for my characters.  I write up the info in the template in Evernote. I keep a copy of it in there and I copy the templates into Scrivener.  That way I can reference it either way.  It helps to have those in Evernote for on the go since I always have my phone with me.


Sunday not so funday!

Hoo boy am I tired. I'm sorry for not posting the last two days.  I didn't get a chance to do any pictures of my TN's either as it's been overcast and rainy.  Hopefully, we'll get a dry, sunny day soon!  I got so much done today.  I put away a load of laundry I washed yesterday, I put away a sink full of dishes I washed two days ago, I wash my hair and I washed my bed linen.  I just need to put it back on the bed. I was going to do that and then post, but I knew I'd end up forgetting or running out of time, so I'm posting first!

Yesterday, when I went out, I noticed a light on my dash. I was showing my back right tire was low.  I went and got air in it. It was the same one that did that right before the beach trip in September.  I filled it and went ab0ut my business. I needed to run an errand for a friend later and it was on again.  I put some more air in.  I guess it must have a leak or a hole.  I had to run out today and noticed it was as low as it was yesterday when I started so I put air in it. I'm hoping to get it patched or replaced asap.  It is so frustrating. Having to worry and do maintenance every time I used my car was something I was glad to give up when I got this car. My friend did say that it would need a set of tires before too long when he got it for me, so I guess it is going to be time!

I am going to put my linens back on my bed. I can't wait.  I haven't sleep well this past week and I'm hoping that fresh, clean, bedlinen will help!  I have been trying to figure out what I'm doing for NaNo this year.  I can either do another book in the zombie series, book two of my ice skaters series, or something new and completely different.  I can't make up my mind and I need to hurry up so I can prep! Ahhhh!


Well then

Guess what I forgot all about today? Yup, to take pictures of my new TN stuff.  Oops.  I needed to go to Walgreens for something and found some Halloween goodies.  Look at these guys.  So cute.  The Reese's was a nice treat.

I love that mug! It was the last one they had.  They were buy one get one 50% off.  I saw the cute 'potion' bottle and got it since it would be half off.  I love adding things to my ever growing Halloween collection.

I was messing around at home later on my phone and was looking in the Munzee app. There was a little thing in there to earn points for the mobile store so I did that, then I saw I could get more points for deploying or capturing a Munzee.  I haven't played in a while, so I went out and deployed three physical ones at Dan Daniel's park.  There is a little area at DD that I didn't even know existed!  That was cool.  I took a few sky pictures and a picture of a cute little tree.

I enjoyed my quick trip there and hope to go back and explore soon.  I didn't know that part was even there!  It was good to get out and Munzee again.  Maybe I can go out tomorrow and carry my TNs and Munzee, explore and take pictures of my TNs.  We'll see. I don't feel great at the moment, but I'm hoping to sleep off anything that I may have.  


Halloween card!

I needed a few things at Target tonight so I went over there.  They weren't busy at all and it was so nice to be able to wander around without people everywhere.  I got the item I needed and several other goodies.  I found a really cool huge pack of Post-it notes for $10.  I bought them.  I won't have to buy Post-its for a loooong time unless I find more really good sales. lol Here is the pack:

I checked the Starbucks in Target before leaving and I found two cards I didn't have AND they have the new Halloween card. It's glow in the dark, too!  I was so glad to get one.  I wanted it. before I knew it was glow in the dark. I wanted it even more after finding that out. It's cute too! Here are the three cards I was able to get:

I'm happy with my finds.  Before going to Target, my friend and I went to an auto parts store to get an air filter for Goontz. When I was getting my oil changed, they told me that I had no air filter!  I don't know how the hell that happened, but I have one now.
