Sunday yet again.

My walk today was quite interesting.  Why? It was crazy windy out there.  It was cooler too, so that made it worse.  I was very glad to get home and out of that wind!  I did stop while on my walk at CVS.  I needed stamps, and I knew I could get a book of them there.  I got those and four boxes of clearance mini candy canes.  I love peppermint!  

I didn't go out again after I came home as the temperature was supposed to drop and the wind was still pretty bad.  It's supposed to get down in the teens tonight.  Yikes!  I hope it's warmer than that tomorrow when I walk! lol . 

My friend didn't get over here this weekend at all, so I still don't have hot water.  I had soooo many dishes to wash and I was trying to wait for the hot water.  I don't feel they get as clean in cold water.  I finally gave in and washed them today.  I couldn't wait any longer to wash them.  I was almost out of plates and I was totally out of forks. lol . I also washed my bed linen.  I just need to put that back on the bed and I'll be done for the day. 

I am trying to find an Apple pencil (1st generation) online for a low price, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen!  Apple has refurbished ones for $85.  I can't afford that either.  Maybe one day I can get one for less than $40 but I'm not holding my breath. lol . I would like one to use with my iPad mini.  

 


Phooey!

I didn't get to walk today.  Why? Well, my friend got off earlier and was coming to try and get my water heater fixed.  Sadly, I could have walked because he didn't get here until after I would have gotten back.  Oh well.  He didn't get the water heater fixed.  There is still water down there.  He did get the pump set up down there so it will always be ready to go.  It should now come on and keep the basement from flooding.  Hopefully he'll be able to get down there and get the whole thing fixed when the water goes down.  It's so frustrating!

I still have not heard one word from the seller on ebay about her sending me the wrong purse.  If she doesn't respond soon, I'm going to leave negative feedback and report her to ebay.  I do not like to be treated like that.  I'm hoping she makes it right, but at this point, I seriously doubt it.

I got an unexpected treat today of $30 to spend at Amazon.  Just after I bought the stylus. lol . So, I bought some ink for my printer, a three pack of Mildliners, and some blue ball point pens. (Just to round out the amount.) . I've wanted some Mildliners for a long time.  They have been on my wishlist forever.  I decided to treat myself to some. ^_^ . They and the other things should come Saturday.  Everything I got was Prime eligible.  The pens are a brand I've never heard of, but I figured I'd give them a try.  I love pens so it's always fun to try new ones.

I'm off to play with GoodNotes.  I found a bunch of templates and things online that I want to import in and play with. I'll do a GoodNotes review soon.  Also, I'll be talking about my latest game obsession, Board Kings!

 


Water, water, but not hot! :p

I still don't have any hot water. My friend came today and didn't have his boats again so he didn't get to try to fix my water heater.  Phooey!  He did bring a pizza from one of our favorite local places to split, so it wasn't a wasted visit. :P . He is planning on coming back tomorrow and working on it. Hopefully he can get it fixed.  I would really like to have hot water again!

I had planned to go to Starbucks tonight with my letters and work on them, but with him coming, I postponed it to tomorrow.  Well, if he is coming tomorrow, I can't go then either.  Oh well! I'll just run over there tomorrow night, grab a drink, and bring it back here to write letters. I need to buy stamps again as I have more letters to write than I have stamps.

I bought a really cool app for my iPad Mini that I am playing with.  It is best used with a stylus.  I wanted an Apple pencil, but I don't have $100!  The newer version is even more and it's not compatible with my iPad.  I looked at alternatives and found one that looks similar that has good reviews on Amazon.  It is supposed to be here on Friday.  I'm hoping I like it.  I will do a post on the app in a few days.  It's GoodNotes if you are wondering. I've already put some templates in it.  Dotted paper, a journal that I found for free, and more.  So far I'm loving the app.  I have old styluses that have the big tip, but I wanted a smaller tipped one.  The pencil type are more like the styluses from the old days.  If you ever had a Palm Pilot, you know what I'm talking about. I loved those things!  I wanted the narrow tip. I may do some digital bullet journaling in the future. I will never give up paper permanently, but it will be fun to experiment!


Sunday again....

I didn't forget to post yesterday, I just didn't do it.  It was a totally lazy day yesterday.  I didn't walk or do anything else either. I could have walked as it didn't start doing anything until later, but I just didn't.  I didn't walk today either,, but it was wet and gross today.  So much for the snow.  We got rain and some ice and that was about it.  

I have been a lazy lump today for sure.  I didn't even leave the house.  I did get my hair washed and my bed linen washed. I just need to put it back on the bed.  I am planning on getting back to walking tomorrow and getting back on track.  At least that is the plan. :p

My purse should FINALLY be delivered tomorrow.  Expedited shipping my ass!  I ordered it on the 5th and the seller didn't even create the label until the 9th and then didn't take it to the post office until the 10th.  Just in case, I went and took screen shots of the listing in case I get sent the 'wrong' thing.  I'm beginning to think that the seller meant to have it as a starting bid and not buy it now, but who knows.  Hopefully, it will be just like the pictures.  

 


Winter weather is coming.

It was very cold today.  I didn't walk.  I should have, but I knew it was going to be cold, so I didn't.  My friend wanted to go to our favorite local pizza place so I did go out.  It was just as cold as I thought it would be. BRR!  My friend got us both a pizza each.  He said it would be good to have in case we do get the bad weather.  I only ate two slices of mine, so I have a lot left.  I'll probably eat something else for dinner tonight and save the pizza for tomorrow and Sunday.

I realized that I might not walk tomorrow because of the cold again.  I needed to get my prescription.  That way, if it did get bad out there, I'd have my prescription and wouldn't have to worry about going out to get it in bad weather.  I think we are going to get more ice than snow. Boo!

I have a game on my iPad that I love. I'm pretty sure it's available on Android too. It's called Puzzle Page.  Every day there is a collection of games.  There are usually a word search and crossword.  There are also other types of puzzles. It's fun.  It's gotten me to try different puzzles that I might not have tried before.  I have been enjoying the Sudoku puzzles.  I'm still playing at easy level, but I've hoping to go to harder levels as I learn more.  Puzzle Pages is a lot of fun.  If you like puzzles, check it out!


Windy weather

Today's walk was quite a bit cooler than yesterday's.  It was also crazy windy too.  When I was coming back, it felt like it would have been faster and to turn around and let the wind blow me the other way. lol   I got through though and came home.

My friend came to try to get my pilot light lit on my water heater.  There was still some water down there and he didn't have his rubber boots, so he couldn't go down there.  Hopefully it will be fixed eventually.  I would like to have hot water for my dishes, at least!

 I was able to stop at the pharmacy and drop off my new insurance card.  I'm glad to have that done.  I think there should be a way to do all this online. It's 2019, not 1995! Sheesh!  Oh well.  I have been using this pharmacy for a year now since Kmart closed. I still don't like it.  If my car was always dependable, I'd transfer it somewhere else!

The temperature tomorrow isn't supposed to get up to 40 all day.  I hope it's not windy, too.  I'll walk, but I'll have to bundle up more. I'm trying not to miss any walks this week in case it does snow this weekend.  That could possibly keep me from walking for a few days.

 


Good mail day!

I got my washi today and it's so pretty!  I also got my pen loop for my Leuchtturm.  My purse still hasn't shipped. Boo!  Here is some pictures of today's goodies:

The Starbucks cup didn't come in the mail. I went over there for that. :P . I played Starbucks for Life as I usually do. I won a bunch of stars and a I even won a free bakery item.  The coupon was running out today, so I went over there and got a cookie.  I also got a cascara latte while I was there.  They are almost out of cascara syrup.  Boo!  I'll miss it.  Hopefully they'd bring it back again.  


Hello

It wasn't sunny today, but it was warm.  It was around 60! It was pretty nice for walking.  I got in my walk and I was able to stop by the dollar store and get a few things I needed.  I also found a great smelling candle for .30!  It was in the holiday markdown stuff.  I wonder if they have any more. It smells so good. It's called Frosted Fir and smells like a fresh tree. 

I needed some tape, and I was hoping there would be some in the holiday markdown section, but no go. I got some in the regular section though, so that was okay.  I also got a package of copy paper as I was completely out.  Some of the pen pal letters I wrote last week were on green paper because I was out of my regular white sheets.

I didn't do much when I got home. I washed my hair and my bed linen. I've had a really bad headache, so doing other things was not an option.  I mainly just sat around. I played some Bingo on my iPad and watched The Simpsons on FXNow.  I love watching the episodes, but the commercials are driving me nuts.  They are mainly the same ones over and over and they are annoying as hell!  I just mute them when they come on!

Tomorrow, I should be receiving a pen loop for my Leuchtturm bullet journal and a new set of washi. It's from my favorite brand/company of washi. Molshine.  I love their washi.  This set is 10 rolls, I think.  It's so pretty from the pictures. The thing about their washi, is it's always better looking in person than in pictures. I love their washi!  I'll post pictures tomorrow.  

Oh! I also found another Fossil purse on ebay. ^^;;;;; I saw it, watched it, and then bought it all within five minutes. lol . I hope I love it in person as much as I did on the site.  That hasn't shipped yet, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.


Rain again

I swear it's never going to dry out here.  I decided to skip my walk today. I did not feel like holding the umbrella through the entire walk!  I just stayed in and stayed dry.  I did go out in the evening. My friend wanted to go to Roma and get pizza, so we did.  He ran me by the post office while we were out and I got a bunch of mail.  Quite a few pen pal letters and information from my newer insurance.  I didn't think any of that was ever going to come.   That is one less thing to stress about.

I realized today that I didn't get any granola bars when I went to the grocery store yesterday.  I usually get enough boxes to get me through the month. I eat one for breakfast everyday.  I will get them tomorrow.  They are two for five dollars this week, but for one day only, tomorrow, they are three for five dollars.  I'll get them on my way home from my walk.  Hopefully they'll have plenty. 

I started one of the jigsaw puzzles I got for myself.  The pieces are smaller than I'd prefer, but they aren't too bad.  Here is what I have so far:

Welcome 2019

It is now 2019 and it was in the 60's today!  It was very nice outside for my walk.  Such a big change from the rain yesterday.  I enjoyed my walk quite a bit!  It was great to walk in short sleeves. ^_^

In other news, I ended 2018 by going to Starbucks and I started 2019 with the same. :P . My friend who never wants to go when I ask wanted to go tonight.  I hadn't really planned to go today, but when she agreed, I couldn't say no. lol 

I never found a way to watch ABC last night. :( . I had to watch a stream of NBC and I didn't know that they didn't show the ball drop.  The live stream was also a few minutes behind, so I actually saw it hit midnight before they showed it.  I was not happy.  Hopefully, ABC will get with the program and get local streaming in my area by next year!
