Post titles are hard! :p

Well, I got in my walk today. It was a bit cooler than yesterday.  I wore my warmer hoodie and I needed it!  It was mostly overcast with some clear spots in the sky.  The sky was so pretty and blue behind those clouds.  As of now, they are calling for snow here this weekend.  Sunday is supposed to be a snowy day.  I don't know if it will, but if it does, I have the treadmill if I want to use it and I have plenty to read.  I finished my last book last night and started on the next.  After that, I'll go back to the one I was reading before all three of my holds came through. lol

According to the tracking, my iPad is in Roanoke VA. That is usually the last stop before it gets to Danville.  It still says it might be Saturday before it gets here, but I'm hoping that will update and it will be here tomorrow.  It would be cool to have it to play with this weekend.  Especially if we do get the snow.

I can also use the time to get more done on my 2019 bullet journal.  I am trying to think of more trackers to add. I have a few listed that I want to add that I haven't yet.  I did a 'welcome January' page and it's pretty cute. I drew a snowman and put some 'snowflakes' falling around him with a stamper.  It looks pretty neat.  Not artistic as most people, but I like it! ^_^ 

 


It shipped! Whee!

I got my confirmation today that the replacement iPad Mini shipped! Let's hope this one is perfect and works and lasts for many, many years.  I am so ready to get it and set it up.  I think I've found a way to get my app to the new iPad.  I just have to have it with me to try it. I've been researching.  If I can get that one app over, I'll be a very happy camper!  I also found the way to see what apps I've ever downloaded.  I know there have been times when I got some free apps via Starbucks.  They used to give cards out in stores that you could get a free song or app. I wish they still did that. I got some great apps that way.  Some of them that I download, may have not been compatible with my iPod since the iOs on it is so old. I'm sure anything that I find that I want to use will be okay with the iPad because it will upgrade to iOS 12.  I know it will because I did that with the one I sent back.

I walked today and it was a bit cooler than yesterday.  There were no short sleeves today!  It was sunny for the most part though. It did cloud up a little, but it didn't rain, so that was fine.  I was glad to get home though as I was tired and a bit chilly.  It was after 4 am when I finally got to sleep last night and it's affected me all day.  This morning, I was trying to make coffee without putting coffee in the Keurig. LOL!  

This evening, I did my January habit tracker in my new bullet journal.  I also did the first week of 2019 in there.  I have printed out a calendar to trace and make the other side of my January habit tracker page.  I want to get it set up. I am ready to move into it now! LOL . I love it already.  


Sunday Starbucks!

I truly wanted to go to Starbucks today and take my laptop and get in my NaNoWriMo writing in.  With my car acting up like it did on Friday, I decided that if my car would start at home, it would probably be a good idea to NOT turn it off until I got home! lol  I drove over to Starbucks and decided that I would get something different.  I got a Peppermint white mocha.  I hadn't had one in ages.  I had forgotten how good they are, but I also had forgotten how sweet they are.  Yowza! LOL . It was delicious, though!

I came straight home from there.  I have been doing chores.  I got in my walk today at my usual time.  I decided to wash my hair earlier in the day so I had to warm up some water. lol . Since it was cold and my water heater is 'off' at the moment, I did NOT want to wash my hair in cold water.  While I was folding and putting away a small load of laundry, I put a pot on the stove and filled it with water.  After I got the clothes folded and put away, the water was nice and warm.  I used it to wash my hair over the sink.  that way, I didn't have to use it straight from the faucet and freeze my poor head off. :p . I got that done and then immediately went to my room and dried it.  I walk around with a wet head in summer, but not in the fall when it's only in the low 50's!  

I have my bed linen in the dryer and I'm pretty sure it's done and ready to go back on the bed, but I haven't gotten that far yet.  I've done my French lesson and I'm doing my blog post now.  Once I get the bed linen back on the bed, I only need to do my writing for today's NaNo.  

I did some work in my current bullet journal today too. I already had this coming week's layout done, so I did the next week's.  I'll l have to put in my December habit tracker soon.  I'll do that later today or in a few days.  It's just the 18th, so I have some time!  

I'm still finding great crime shows on Prime, but they are short. Usually it's just one season or so of a show.  I have a lot of them loaded up so I should be okay for awhile in any case.  I hope they add more shows.  I love true crime!


35,000 words are a go!

Yes, I hit the 35,000 word mark tonight for NaNo!  It was a good writing day.  I actually wrote almost 2500 today.  Today was a lot less stressful than yesterday! I got in a good walk.  It wasn't too cold but it wasn't really warm either.  It was nice for walking, though.  I got in my walk and then came home and relaxed for a bit. I didn't go back out.  I thought about it, but I didn't want to risk my car doing what it did yesterday.  I might try to go to Starbucks tomorrow afternoon, but I haven't decided yet. We'll see how I'm feeling.

I went down in my basement today because i don't have hot water again.  There was a lot of water down there, so there will be no hot water again for a few days.  I'll try to be patient and go down there again in four or five days.  It needs to go down a lot before I'll be able to do anything. I am trying to think of more trackers to put in my 2019 bullet journal.  If you have any idea, leave me a comment below!  I thought of a tracker / list today.  I'll put down major purchases and when I got them and where.  So say, a dryer, what date I got it and what store. It will be a good reference.  I also add some small appliances to it too.  Just to keep a list of things and when they were purchased. Of course the MacBook Pro will go on there!  Now, I just need to think up some other trackers to add!


Good Grief!

What a day.  I actually got to walk today and that was nice.  I came home and did some things around the house while waiting on a package.  The package was a Logitech wireless keyboard that I've wanted since last year's NaNo!  I ordered it two days ago on Amazon and it came today.  It's nice and I'm actually typing on it now.  I will use it mainly for my phone and tablet, but it's working grewat with my MacBook Pro.  it isn't working at all with my tablet at the moment.  I am going to work on that and see if I can't get it to work later.

When I was at Target the other week, I saw some laptop sleeves.  They were marked down to less than $5 and they were for a 11" size laptop. My MBP is 13 inch, so it wouldn't do me any good.  The keyboard is about that size though and I thought it would make a good case to keep it in when I'm not using it.  It's a snug fit, but it fits.  It will be good to have protection for it when not in use.  So, I go back to my car and try to start it to drive home.  No go.  I try a few more times and still nothing.  I waited awhile and tried again.  Nope.  Also, all of my attempts at trying to start it ran the battery down. ~_~;  Luckily, I had a friend come and give me a jump.  It started right up and I was able to get home.  While I was waiting for all this, I went back in Target and got a Cascara latte!  I was going to get one when I was in there but there was a line.  I decided I'd stop at the regular one on my way home.  I knew I wasn't going to stop again or not go straight home after I got my car started, so I just went in Target and got my latte.  They were out of almond milk and it wasn't as good as it usually is.  Oh well, it was something good and hot to drink. It was a bit chilly outside sitting in a car that wouldn't start!

So, I'm home now.  I have to do NaNo. I haven't done that yet.  I will work on that after I eat dinner.  I have no idea what I'm going to fix for dinner.  I guess I'll find out when I fix it. LOL . I did some more on my 2019 bullet journal.  I drew in lines on the rest of the trackers that needed them.  I also filled in my board game tracker. It looks so good! I love it! I hope to do a video and take some pictures of all the work I did on it soon.  Oh, I also fell in love with the blue Stabilo pen that I used to set up a lot of it.  It was also the pen I used to set up this year's NaNo tracker.  I looked online to see if I could order some of just this color of pens.  I found a site that had them for .60 each! I got five. LOL . I plan to use that color throughout the year in 2019 in that bujo.  I'll keep using the pen I have and put one of the new ones in my Stabilo roll that I got earlier this year.  The other three are backups. :P

Now, I need to start thinking about dinner and then getting prepared for NaNo.  I am really liking the feel of this keyboard. I might be using it tonight!–


Bullet journal and NaNoWriMo!

So, it was rainy, nasty and cold today. I didn't walk.  I did get a lot done on the set up of my 2019 bullet journal!  I have the beginnings of a wonderful bujo for 2019.  I have added a book tracker, order tracker, Starbucks store tracker, Coffee love page, board game tracker, and a lot more.  I love it so far.  Since it's a pretty blue, I've been using one of my blue Stabilo pens in it for the majority of things I've set up so far. It's looking great.  As soon as we get some decent weather, I'll film a video and take some pictures.  I would take pictures now, but not everything is completed yet.  I have trackers all the way done and some just need to have lines drawn.  I'll do that later. I have until December 31st after all! :P

So, as for NaNo.  I wrote over 2000 words tonight! Go me!  This book is "A Sea Of Zoms" . My two main characters went to the beach from their safe compound.  I realized that their trip was pretty short compared to the rest of the book, so I made a reason for them to go back for a week!  I started that part tonight.  They will actually arrive at the beach in tomorrow's writing.  This time, I plan to throw in some of my original ideas that I had for this book.  There will be more zoms than on the first trip! lol . 

Currently, my bed is a total mess.  I have my current bullet journal, next year's bujo, and the last two years bujos on it.  Not to mention about 2394302849032 pens. LOL . I was getting inspiration from my old bujos and I needed this years to see how i did a few trackers.  I love the boardgame tracker.  It's based on the one I made in the bujo before the current one. It's going to be even better than that one.  I did the whole Monopoly board again to be the tracker. I think it looks great so far.  I need to take my old tracker and look at my games. I know I've added at least one Monopoly set since I had that tracker and a card game or two, too!  

Here is my original tracker in my old bujo:

Double Star Day and NaNo stickers!

So, it was double star day at Starbucks today.  I told myself yesterday that if I actually walked today, I could go to Starbucks. If I didn't go for my walk, no Starbucks for me!  I walked! It was overcast, but it didn't rain.  It was too terribly cold but it wasn't great either!  I got in my walk and came home.  When I was walking by my friend's house, there was a red balloon tied to the pole at the street.  My friend's hubby, (also a friend) was outside with their German Shepard.  I mentioned the balloon and realized he did it. lol I had mentioned that I had been listening to IT on my daily walks. We Geeks have to stick together! :P

I got home from my walk and relaxed a bit. I decided to run to the post office.  I only had one piece of mail, but it was an anticipated one.  It was a NaNo postcard and a NaNo sticker that my ML sent me for participating in a virtual write in! I scanned the sticker into my MBP and printed myself out a sheet of them to use in my Bujo and other places.  The original one will reside in the pocket in my bujo until I decide where it's going to be permanently. It's got a lot of blue in it and I was thinking of putting it on my 2019 bujo!  I'll see what I come up with.  

Before I went to the post office, I went to Starbucks and got a cascara latte.  Yummmmmmm I swear it was the best one I've had in a long time.  They are always good, but this one was just extra delicious.  Of course today would be the day I got a tall instead of a venti! Sheesh! Lol

I might not be able to walk again tomorrow. BOOO.  It's supposed to be nasty here tomorrow.  There were plenty of places today where there was mud and junk from the earlier rain.  The river has flooded several places and part of the Riverwalk are under water yet again!  My route is pretty water free except for the muddy sidewalks.  Those are gross and I have to walk extremely slow on them so I don't slip and fall!

I ran to the grocery store this evening to pick up a few things. I got a thing of their deli chicken bites.  They were okay, but htey were a bit plain.  If I'd had some gravy to dip them in, it would have been better!  I've been wanting some fried chicken for awhile now. I still want some. LOL . Hopefully I'll get some good chicken soon!

I got 1825 words written for NaNo today! Go me!  If tomorrow is gross and rainy, and I can't walk, I have plans!  I have been meaning to set up my 2019 bullet journal. I finally decided to go with the Leuchtturm1917. It's ice blue and it just looks like a great one to start the year in. ^_^ I'll use my Lemome either for 2020 or for something else entirely.  I am anxious to set up the new bujo.  I just know once I set it up, I'll want to move to it.  :p

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Last minute prep!

First of all, Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain to you!  I hope you had a wonderful day.  I got in my walk and came home and rested for just a bit and then drove to two local cemeteries.  It's a Halloween tradition for me.  I always visit at least one old cemetery on Halloween.  I went to two and then headed home.  I almost got Starbucks, but it was close to lunch, so I came home and ate.  

I have just finished re-reading my first book and I'm about to re-read the second one.  I want all my characters to be fresh and in my mind for tomorrow.  I can't believe NaNo is tomorrow! Whoo! I'm happy about it though!  I am ready.  I was reading my first book on the Kindle and realized I had the wrong 'copy' of the first book.  I found the correct one on my computer and fixed that.  I took notes on things I need to change.  I've done small editing on both of the first two books but not major editing, yet.  I want to write down everything so I know what and where to edit when the time comes.

I did a bit of a leaf page in my bullet journal.  I went in my yard this afternoon after the walk and cemtery visits and collected some leaves.  I glued them in my bujo and then used mod podge to make sure they stayed.  I added some Halloween stickers.  It's a little Halloween spread that is totally different.  I like it!  Here is the spread and a few pictures from each of the cemeteries I visited.

Bullet journal NaNoWriMo prep!

Yes! I got my word count tracker done in my bullet journal.  I did the right page last night before bed and I did the left page today.  On the left page, I put a graphic from NaNo and I put my winner certificated from the last two years. ^_^ . The word tracker on the right is just like the one I used last year.  I really like it and find it useful.  Here is my tracker:

Here we go again!

I changed my background and colors again.  It's now Halloween themed. :p . Since I love Halloween, it's going to stay for a while.  At least until November 1st. (^_^) Of course, the way I am, I'll look at it tomorrow and hate it and change it. lol

I walked today and it was hot.  It's October, dammit! I want some cooler weather.  It would be nice to NEED a hoodie.  It was in the 80's today and it eertainly felt like it!  I was so hot when I got back home.  I want some cooler weather.  It's not asking for too much! Ahhh!

I had to run an errand this afternoon that I didn't get to run yesterday.  I got that done and meant to go by the post office and forgot.  I did everything else I needed to do while out though.  I still need to sit down and write letters.  I did more Nano prep last night.  I will be making a Nano tracker in my bujo so that will be ready for November 1!  Now, if I could just get my Nano shirt.  

I have a killer headache, so this post might not make much sense at all.  If that is the case, sorry. I'll do better tomorrow.  I hope! I have my bed linen in the dryer. I just need to get it out and put it back on my bed.  I also have another load of laundry in the wash.  I need to get the bed linen out so I can dry that load.  I'll do that after I post this.  I have already done my French lesson for today and I washed my hair earlier.  I still need a haircut so badly.  I am probably not going to be able to get one this month.  My funds are way too low. I didn't even get to refill money on my Starbucks cards! OH NO!!!!!!!! I did claim a small card as a reward from one of my places I get gift cards from.  Sadly, it wasn't a virtual one, I will actually have to wait for it to ship.  Oh well, at least I'll have something.  I spent my last free drink a few days back so I need to reload my card. :p
