Bullet Journal Feed

Hello 2021

Here we are in a brand new year.  Who knew that 2020 could drag on for so long?  Here is hoping that 2021 is much better.  I started the month and the year off right.  How? I went to Starbucks of course! :p  That was nice.  I put another spread in my 2021 bullet journal!  I did a 21 in 2021.  I did a 20 in 2020. Sadly, I only got sixteen of those done. I'm hoping to do all 21 this year!

I took down my Yule tree earlier this evening.  I got all five strands of blue lights off easily.  I went to string them to store them for next year and 2 & 1/2 of them aren't working now. ~_~; WTF?  I had put them in five different piles to keep them from tangling.  I don't know how they stopped working so quickly. I checked on the Target website to see if there were any blue lights in stock at Target and they are all gone.  Boo!  I will have to wait to replace them next year.  Phooey!

Here is my Starbucks cup. I finally got the last of the four cups for the season. :)

Goodbye 2020!

I crashed early and hard last night and I needed it.  I was thinking about things before bed and realized that I had stopped setting up my 2021 bullet journal some time back. D'oh!!!!!!  Today, I looked and the things I would use immediately are there.  I still need to add a "21 in 2021" tracker, my NaNoWriMo tracker(s), beach bingo, and some other things I wanted to add. I went ahead and got the first two months done, though!  I have my January habit tracker,  February habit tracker, and I have the weeklies for those months.  I'm adding something new this year.  On the page after the last week of the month, I'm doing a monthly recap page to add anything I want to remember. I can write stuff or glue in things for memories.  I think it will be a nice addition.  I decided to go with a printed habit tracker to save time this year. I found the one I had downloaded several years ago and looked it over.  It didn't have enough lines for all the things I track, so I made a copy of it and then cut part of the bottom off and taped it to the tracker.  This way I added a few lines. Then, I made a copy of that. I went ahead and printed out a year's worth of them and I have the taped one I made to use if I want to make more, or I can just use a blank one I printed. I printed an extra just in case.  I always loved this habit tracker and I really wanted to use it but I track more things than I did when I started.  This way, I can still use this cute tracker and track more. This is going to save me SO much time going forward!

I started my actual pages further into the Leuchtturm too.  I hope to use up all my pages this time!  I always have some pages left. I don't want to have that this time.  I'm sorry I didn't post the last two days. I just got to doing things and never got around to it.  I'm going to try my best to post to my blog every day in 2021!  I don't know if I can do it, but I'm going to try my best. I also plan to get my pen pal letters written and stay caught up with them.  Yes, I STILL haven't written any.  2020 has just not been the best year.  Yes, some good things have happened to me, my friend got me Goontz and my 15" MacBook Pro, but the rest of the year was pretty nasty.  My hope is that 2021 is a wonderful year.  Let's hope that we are able to defeat Covid-19 and try to get our lives back to normal!


Starbucks on a Sunday!

Yes, you know where I went today! :p. I went to Starbucks and I went inside to see if I could get a few more cards. I got some and then found a mug I liked.  There was a tumbler the other day that I wanted, but of course, it was long gone! The other one like it that I was considering was gone too!  Their stuff is 30% off so people probably bought them for gifts. I did pick out a cute mug (no handle) with a lid.  It says it's 8oz, but it looks like it would hold more. I think it will without the lid.  I'll test it out by brewing some coffee later!  I got a grande peppermint mocha.  I ordered a grande peppermint white mocha.  This is the third time I've gotten a PW instead of a PWM. :(. They were BUSY and there were a lot of people waiting to order and a lot of people waiting on their drinks, so I wasn't going to mess that up by asking for a re-do. I drank it. I didn't enjoy it as I should have, but I wasn't going to inconvenience a whole store of people!  Oh well, hopefully, next time it will be right! The mug is very cute and I love it.  Here is a picture I took:

I should have put the mug up there too. Oh well!  I am currently sitting under the hair bonnet dryer.  I got my dishes washed, my hair washed, my bed linen washed, and I'm now relaxing for a few minutes.  My bed linen is currently in the dryer.  It was too cold for me to sit with a wet head even in my turby thingee.  I decided to get out the dryer.  I already did my weekly backup too.  Oh! I ran by Office Max while I was out and picked up a package of the card sleeves that I use to keep my cards in.  I also did my daily Zeeops mission for Munzee while out.  Now, I'm just going to sit and relax for a while.  I just put the bed linen in to dry before I came to start drying my hair, so that is going to be awhile.  I want to get a few more things done in my 2021 bujo and I want to write some on my story. I did write a few words before posting this. 411 words to be exact. I'd like to get more done.  


Monkees!!!!

So, I love The Monkees and have for a long time.  I thought about looking for old episodes on YouTube recently and was happy to find some! I've been watching them for the past few days and it's been fun.  They were so funny.  Mike was and still is my favorite followed closely by Micky!  I love them all, but Mike has always done it for me. :p

In between episodes and other things, I got several more trackers done in my 2021 bullet journal! Yay!  I did four more.  That doesn't sound like a lot, but having to draw all those lines, it IS a lot.  I will try to do four or more pages tomorrow.  I have a list of things I want to put in there.  I am going to add a few things this year.  I think I'm going to add a tracker for all my Fossil bags and I'd like to keep a record of all my Starbucks tumblers.  I would do the cards I have collected, but that would take a lot of pages. I still may do it, but I don't know yet.

 


2021 Bujo started!

I have been putting off starting my 2021 Bujo and today, I finally opened it and started.  I decided it would be an easier task if I did a few trackers at a time and didn't try to do everything immediately.  I got the index started, the Key page, the welcome 2021 page, and a few trackers.  I will work on it like this.  Do a few tracker pages a day and before you know it, I'll have it ready to go on January 1st!  I have a list of ideas for things I want to go in it. I'll have the things I had this year, plus I'd like to add a few more things.  I'm hoping it is going to turn out nicely.  I am glad I decided on the idea of doing a little at a time.  That way the task won't seem so daunting! The biggest thing that takes time is drawing lines. Those take a steady hand and patience.  I'm not big on either! LOL!


Ahhh!

I actually wrote a little tonight. Go me!  I didn't leave the house today at all. You think I could have spent some of the time writing, right?  Nope! I also got out my bujo for 2021 to start setting it up. It's still untouched. ^^; Maybe tomorrow.  I did get some laundry washed and then forgot about it. It's finally in the dryer now. It's been a long day and I just want to go to bed! lol


Hello from Sunday!

I finished my book today! I need to go back over the last few day's work and check it out.  I may need to add a few more things in, but it's pretty well done. I am almost at 55,000 words!  I might just write a few more and make it 55,000.  That would be neat. I am sure I have 800 more words I can add to it.  

I got my usual Sunday stuff done today, bed linen washed, hair washed, etc.  I also washed a bunch of dishes and put away a load of laundry that was in the dryer from yesterday.  I meant to put them away last night but I was so tired last night I didn't even think about it.  I want to write on my story that I've had on semi-hold since the beginning of NaNo.  I also need to create the December habit tracker and the week's speak for the first week of December.  I will either do that tonight or tomorrow.  It's in my bujo to do today, but I might wait and do it tomorrow.  It depends on if I get on a roll while writing or not.

 


Another Leuchtturm 1917? Yes!

I have my notebook for my 2021 bullet journal and it's a Leuchtturm1917!  This is my fourth one.  It's yellow and it's so pretty.  I will probably add a decal or sticker to the front at some point.  This years I had already planned the decal for it.  It was a Myrtle Beach one that matched the cover.  I will look to see if I can find a cute decal when we go to the beach next month. If not, I'll use a sticker.  I got a little packet of Adventure Time stickers in the mail yesterday.  They came in with the order where I ordered the Leuchtturm.  I also ordered a few more things that arrived yesterday.  The last item in that order was supposed to come today, but it didn't.  Hopefully, it will come tomorrow.  It's a passport size TN. ^^: Yes, I know I don't need any more TNs! ;p

An eBay item that I ordered last week came today, too.  My Note has all four of the Nissan hubcaps on it, but the front driver side one had broken pieces and it's cracked in places. I was able to find one on eBay and ordered it. It finally came today.  I was able to put it on after some fun of trying to get it on. LOL, The old one was easy to get off, the new one took me a bit but it's on.  Now my wheels all look good.  

The next thing I want to get for the Note is the cargo cover.  I don't know why they don't have that included when you buy the car. I've seen other people mention this, so I don't think this one is just missing one from a previous owner.  The cargo cover (Nissan branded) is a bit over $100 so I am going to keep looking. I'm hoping to find one for a much, much lower price!

Here is the newest Leuchtturm.  I can't wait to set it up and hope that 2021 is much better than this crazy year!

Friday fun

Well, not fun like last Friday and going to Myrtle Beach!  I didn't really do anything today. I didn't even leave the house.  I meant to go out and do a few things and I never did. Oh well!  I did receive a package from eBay.  I was completely out of Bic roll-on Wite-out.  I knew I was getting low and looked for it when I was in Family Dollar the other week, but they don't carry it.  A few nights ago, I completely ran out so I went to eBay. I found someone selling a four-pack with free shipping, so I got it.  It came today.  I could have gone over to Target and probably got it a few dollars cheaper, but I saw it on eBay and figured why not!  I use it for mistakes in my bujo and in my check register.  It's been a while since I bought a multipack.  It finally ran out.  This should last me a good long time!

What an exciting day. A post about buying Wite-out! lol. Aren't you glad you stopped by? :p


Munzee and more!

I received a new traveler's notebook in the mail today. :P. This one is bigger than a passport size.  It will hold small Moleskine cahiers and Field Note notebooks.  I made mine into a Munzee kit!  I can use it as that and if I want to change it up, carry it as a smaller tn in the future! I like the way I set it up.  I want to get another pocket type insert.  The one I'm using cam in another thing I got and I saved it. It fits perfectly in this little TN and I can store Munzees in there.  All the extras I have in an old Altoid tin.  I can add more to the TN as needed.  Neat, yes?

Of course, I had to give it a test run!  First I drove to a place where there was a virtual Munzee and captured it, then I rode to Ballou park and drove around trying to decide where to deploy a couple of Munzees.  I have deployed several in the park.  You can deploy one within 50 feet of someone else's and at least 150 feet from your own. (Or the other way around, I forget! LOL!) Anyway!  I was able to deploy two and that was fun.  I took pictures of the TN while there since I was outside is beautiful natural light.  Here are the pictures:

This is the TN itself.  I put it in the bag my Foxy came in to carry it in my purse.  It's such a cute size!


20200625_185037

The inside.  I have a Moleskine Evernote notebook in there.  I am using it to keep track k of the Munzees as I deploy them to keep a record. (I also have a tracker in my bujo)


20200625_185037

The little plastic guy that I'm using for now to hold my Munzees.  I used washi tape to secure everything since it's easy to remove and re-stick.  The blue post it has a list of ones that I need to repair that I've deployed in the past.

I think this will be a neat system and I can easily toss this TN in another bag if I go out without my  purse.  I think I'm going to love it.  I found this TN on Amazon for a very good price. It comes in brown, black, and dark brown (what I have).  Very nice quality. It came with one notebook and an extra band. Highly recommended!
