Meh

I walked today and it wasn't too bad.  It was warm, but it's no where near as bad as it was a few weeks ago.  I wish it would cool down a little more.  I came home and did some of my other stuff.  I also noticed it was getitng overcast.  It drizzled a bit.  I hope it doesn't rain a lot.  We certainly don't need anymore rain here!  Some people are still without power and there are still trees and lines down.  There was a mud slide the other day and it took out power to a bunch of people again.  I think they got that fixed.

I went down in my basement after my walk to see if I could get my water heater lit.  Nope.  The part that I would need to light is still under water!  I took a ruler down there and measured the step to see how deep it was the other day when I was down there.  12 inches!  Good grief!  It's still about 8 inches of water down there so I'll have to wait a few more days and try again.  I hate not having hot water.

Remember the Fossil satchel bag I got that I wanted to start carrying this fall?  Well, it stinks.  I mean reeks of perfume and I can't stand it. I don't like a lot of heavy scent.  I wrapped it in newspaper, stuffed it with newspaper and closed it up in a some plastic bags for over a week.  I took it out the other day and it still reeks.  It's bad.  I've been looking up ways to take the smell out. One solution was to put it in a closed container with dry coffee grounds.  That sounds like a good idea.  Especially if it smells like coffee. LOL . I just want it to smell like leather!  I'm going to find a sealable plastic bin big enough for it and put it in there with some coffee grounds and hope for the best.  I really want to carry this handbag, but at the moment, it's not a possibility!


Partial packing

Yes, I'm partially packed!  I have most everything packed but my clothes.  I have a load in the dryer now.  I figured I'd just pack all my clothes at once.  I have packed most of my electronics and toiletries.  I have to pack this Mac and I wanted to post to my blog before I did.  I knew I could have on my phone, but I tend to not write very long posts when I do it that way!

Today, I did get to see my friend for his birthday.  I rode with his mom to get him a cookie cake for his birthday and we also ran a few of her errands while out.  I went to their house and visited for a while too.  After that, we rode around for a little bit and then they brought me home.  I didn't walk today, I kind of wish I did, but at the same time, it was really hot.  It stormed this afternoon when I was with my friends, so it cooled down A LOT.  That was nice.  I think my clothes are about dry.  I'm going to get those out and pack everything and get everything ready so I don't have to do anything in the morning.  I like to be able to sleep later and just get up, wash off, and go.  I hopefully will sleep better tonight than I have been. It was around 4 last night when I finally laid down and I still wasn't sleepy. Boo!

I have to pack up my bullet journal, this MBP, my Kindle, and a few other things and that one bag will be packed.  That will just leave my clothes.  I hope I have enough. I usually take way more than I need.  It's a safety precaution.  I'd rather have too much and not need it than have too little and need more!


Pretty in pink!

After my walk today, I stopped by a friend's house for a bit to see all their pooches.  I was really roasting by the time I got home.  I relaxed and cooled off.  My mailbox had something in it today that I was hoping for.  I found a really cute small crossbody bag recently.  I don't like carrying my full purse on trips, but I like to carry something.  I found this little guy and he is perfect.  I took a picture of the outside and the front pocket/flap thingee.  It also has a big open zipper compartment, a snap close back pocket, and as you can see, several smaller pockets in the flap. I will be perfect for the trip and also for those times when I run out and don't want to carry my big purse.  Here it is:

Yes, it's pink! It also came in military green, khaki, grey, blue, and some other colors.  I though the pink would be fun. I have so many military green bags.  Oh, they had purple too.  It's a really cute and functional bag.  I had to run to do an errand earlier and I carried it.  It's perfect.  It has a small zipper pocket on top that is perfect for carrying my lip balm! Yay!

I hope to walk tomorrow.  I also have to wash more clothes tomorrow, wash my hair, pack, and all kinds of other things.  I needed to mow, so I did that today.  My friend's birthday is tomorrow.  He is my besties son.  He is turning 21 and I'm sure they'll all want to do something for his day.  I'll probably go see them.  He is the the friend I saw today, actually.  He saw me walking and waited when he got home for me to get to the neighborhood to wish me a belated birthday.  While I was there, I had to see all five dogs! LOL!  His mom and step dad have three, his grandma has two. :P I love them all.  I got and gave lots of love! ^_^
