Unexpected Thrift

So, I was planning on staying in today. I got out the case I keep my notes and the first four printouts of the zombie books. I had planned dot go through and refresh myself and take notes and decide on a title and get that done.  I also planned to go to the post office and mail my pen pal letters and come back by the grocery store and pick up a few things. As I was getting ready to dress to go out, my friend texted and asked if I wanted to do a bit of thrifting. We were to go to a few Goodwill stores we don't get to often and were going to eat at Dairy Queen, too. I said, why not so we went.  My favorite finds were a Starbucks tumbler, a very cool iHome radio/bluetooth speaker, and a small afghan.  I also found some other assorted things. One of them being a cartridge and some photo paper for my Canon Selphy. Yay Another great find was a cute little ring planner my Kikki k! It's blue and has cats. Very cute indeed.  I took a picture of the clock and the tumbler to share.


I love my finds.  The Starbucks tumbler is pretty cool. It was one that you purchased in December of 2013 and you could bring it in to a Starbucks every day in 2016 and get a free grande (the size of the cup) coffee! Cool find indeed.


I just got a ton of letters taken care of! It's been almost a year since I last wrote any of my penpals. I'm so happy to actually be caught up. I got them all enveloped up too late to run to the post office today. I'll try to run and mail them tomorrow or Sunday. I have a huge stack. It's a bit crazy! I didn't work a puzzle today, I spent a lot of time on the letters. I also got some writing done. I still have no idea what I'm doing for NaNoWriMo. I really need to decide. I'm sort of leaning toward another book in the zombie series. I have an idea of an event to happen and I might go with that.  The ice skating story will have to wait a bit because I need to do more research on the Olympics part of it.   Hmm, I haven't written on the zombie series since 2019! I just checked. I think I could get right back into that. I just need to do some quick re-reads and go through my notes and sse if I can get another 50,000 words out of those characters. I'm pretty sure I can. I just have to decide what to name book five!  I think I'll take some time this weekend and look over the previous stuff and see if that is what I want to do for this year's NaNo. I think it will be good, but I need more than that one event isn't enough!


I totally meant to post yesterday.  I had a pretty nasty headache so it slipped my mind until it was too late.  I didn't do much yesterday because of the headache so I didn't have a lot to share in any case.  Today, I worked on one of the larger puzzles in the 12 pack.  It's was a 300 piece one. The biggest pieces were much easy to work with.  The puzzles in this box are all in separate bags with no info on them so I had to pull them all out to figure out which puzzle was which.  I put a note on each of them so I wouldn't have to go through that again! :p Here is the one I did:


I liked all the colors. Most of the puzzles in this set are very colorful, too. 

Tuesday Thrift

My friend and I went on a small thrift trip. Just Reidsville. I didn't get anything in Goodwill, but I got a pair of new fuzzy slippers and a ladle at Salvation Army.  The slippers are brand new, very fuzzy, very comfy and they are sparkly. So cute.  We went to the Goodwill in our city when we got back I found a few other things there and my favorite find was a Starbucks water bottle. It's brand new and still had the original price sticker on it! :)


Very cool, yes? I was happy to add it to my collection. It's only 13 .oz so it won't hold a lot, but it's very cute so that is okay. :p By the way, the original price was $18.95. I paid .99¢. Score! 

A pumpkin and a puzzle

I went to the grocery store yesterday and wanted to get a pumpkin with my groceries, but they were out. Today, I had to run out for something else so I went to another location of the same grocery store.  I got my pumpkin. :)  I also worked another one of those crazy little puzzles. Only one more and then I can get to the bigger ones with good-sized pieces!



Busy Sunday

Phew, I'm glad the day is almost over. I got a lot done though. I just need to put my bed linen back on the bed. I mowed the front lawn. I was so hoping I wouldn't have to do it again this season, but I did. If it gets cool enough soon, I will be done. Please let it get cool! lol  I did another of the little puzzles today. Hoo boy was that one was nuts. All those colors and such tiny pieces. Look at this crazy thing:


It was fun, though.  It was nice to get another puzzle done. I also got a bunch written. :)

Big thrift, no puzzle!

I didn't have a chance to pull out a puzzle today. My friend and I went on a long thrift trip. Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan. I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I did get some goodies.  One of my finds was another Starbucks tumbler! It's cute. Sadly, when we were loading the car, my friend put the bag I and my tumbler fell out and hit the pavement. :( It cracked at the bottom, but it won't interfere with its use. I just wish that hadn't happened. My poor tumbler took a tumble! :( I found two cute composition books in one GW that have black shiny glitter covers. They are so cute! They were only.50¢ I should have bought more! I will if they have any left the next time I go.  I really don't need more notebooks (HAHA) but yeah. Anyway! :p

I didn't think I would get to write tonight as I'm extremely tired, but I did get almost 1600 words so I'm happy!  I am trying to write everyday.  I STILL have no idea what I'm doing for NaNoWriMo. I HAVE to decide on that SOON. Ah! Here are a few pretty rainbow pictures I took while we were out.


A bit hard to see and not as pretty as in person, but there you go!

Small thrift and a puzzle

My friend asked if I wanted to go to a restaurant out of town that we like and I agreed, so we did. We also were able to go to the Goodwill that is along the way there.  I got a few things. My favorite? A wood wick candle! :)  I have always wanted to try one.  It's brand new, too.  I worked on another puzzle.  This one is a shaped one. It was interesting to do!  Sheesh! :P  This one had bigger pieces (yay) and it had more pieces, too.  This was a 200 piece one.  It was pretty fun but a bit weird with the shape of it.  


Puzzle? Yes!

I actually worked on a jigsaw puzzle today. First one in over a year. I got a box of 12 puzzles some time ago. I thought, I'll work one of the small ones to get myself back in the habit. It was fun. The pieces were so small though.  It's only a 150 piece puzzle, but I worked it. I like the colors of it. I hope to continue on and start back working on puzzles again. I have so many that need to be put together.  Some are vintage and still sealed, too! :)


Tuesday thrift

We went to Reidsville today for a small thrift trip.  I only got a few things at each place. (Salvation Army and Goodwill) My favorite find was a black leather Fossil bag with the key tag and key still on it. Yay! After we got back, I went out myself to get one of those huge storage containers to store some of the bags I keep buying. :p  I should have counted them as I put them in.  I do plan to go back and write down which ones are in there so I'll have a record when I need a certain bag. I'll know if it's in there or somewhere else.  Here is the cute Fossil bag:


Hello from Monday!

Another day down. Last night after I got off of here, I loaded the new stickers from DPC to my iPad mini. They are so cute! I love all of her stuff. I added a category on here for DPC Digitals. I hope to go back through and use it for any post I've mentioned them. If you want to check them out yourself, go


You can also find the link in my link list on the side. The site has a link to the Etsy shop and a TON of digital freebies. There are a lot of things on there and it's a great way to get into digital planning.  You can thank me later! :)


Yes, it's Sunday and I did my usual. I washed my hair and my bed linen so they would both be clean! :p I also paid all my bills, got lunch out while doing errands, and bought two cute sets of Halloween stickers from DPC Digitals. I love all over her stuff. It's all so cute! I am going to import them into GoodNotes after I get the linens back on the bed. That is next on today's to-do list.  I would have liked to toss a nap in somewhere but I didn't! I also wrote a bunch today. I was on a roll. I love when that happens. I wrote 3712 words. Whoo hoo!
