Starbucks on a Sunday!

I tried to talk my friend into going to Starbucks tonight, but she was a big meanie as usual. :p . I went and got a few dollars worth of gas and went over there myself.  I got my drink free and I also got a chocolate chip cookie.  Unfortunately, I didn't get my cascara latte.  They gave me a caramel latte instead of a cascara latte. :(  It was good, but it wasn't what I wanted.  I didn't realize it until I got home.  Oh well!

I got in a nice walk today.  It wasn't too bad out there.  I got a lot done at home today, too.  I washed a huge sink full of dishes, washed my hair, and washed my bed linen!  I need to put those back on the bed and I'm done.  

I created a new page in my bullet journal.  I decided to do a spread for ids in various games I play.  I only have four listed so far, but I'll be adding them as I play.  It's for games where you can add friend by a code.  I thought that would be a good thing to track.  That way, if I am on a site to share my code from a game, I can just check my bullet journal.  ^_^

 


Mildliners are nice!

I received my package with the Mildliners in it today.  They are pretty nice!  I made a spread fro them in my bullet journal.  I also made a new page for my Crayola Super tips, too.  That way I won't have to pull out my older bujo to see the colors. I used the page in that one a lot.  I can pick just the right color. I might do a brush pen spread page, too!  Here are my two new spreads.  I have room at the bottom of the Mildliner page for the orange pack.  I hope to add it to my collection in the future.

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!


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.


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:
