So, I didn't walk today as I had planned. The funny thing is, the rain stopped right about the time I would be going for my walk! LOL Since I had already decided to skip the walk today, I did just that! I went out later and hit a Pokestop as this was day seven of a streak and I didn't want to lose my streak! While I was out, I found myself at Starbucks. Today and tomorrow, they are giving you 20 bonus stars for any holiday drink. I got a caramel brulee and it was delicious! I came home and went in the basement. No luck on getting the pilot light lit on the water heater, but I got nice cold feet. :( .
I decided to wash my hair because it's been bothering me. When I washed it before, I didn't realize until later that I didn't get all the shampoo out and it was driving me crazy. That water was COLD. Brrrr. While I was washing it and freeing my head off, I had the hair bonnet hair dryer on and warming up. It felt so nice to get under that thing, let me tell you!
I thought about putting up my Yule tree, but last year, a lot of my light strands were faulty.. Either part of the string worked or none of them worked. I went to Target online and got five boxes of lights. I went to the drive up to pick them up, but no one ever came out. My car was trying to overheat, so I pulled into a another parking spot and went in. I picked up my lights and headed out. The lady said the drive up pick up should have worked, but it didn't! I got my lights and headed home. I had put the tree up before leaving the house. Just the actual tree. When I got home, I tested the five strands of lights I had from last year and only two of them worked! One strand worked only half way. In other words, half of the strand would light up and the other half didn't! The one strand that did completely work was an old string and the blue lights weren't as dark as the newer ones. I didn't us that one. I had enough with the five I bought and the half strand. I think it looks lovely. What do you think?
I also did my French and got 1777 words for NaNo! One of my library books that I had a hold on came in today so I am going to switch to that one on my Kindle. The one I'm currently reading can be renewed anytime. I want to get this one that is on a limited time schedule first.
