Caramel Macchiato Feed

Meh

It has been a long and boring day.  I did get out this evening, though. I went to Starbucks and even though I knew they said their last bottle of cascara ran out on the 7th, I still asked to make sure they didn't have any.  They didn't. :(  I got a caramel macchiato instead.  It was okay, but I prefer my cascara. I'm going to try different things until I find something I like as well as the cascara latte. 

Speaking of Starbucks, I got the last card from the ones I purchased on November 30.  It finally arrived today. It's the corporate one that you couldn't get in stores.  It's pretty cool.  Here it is:

It feels like Sunday!

Yes, all day it's felt like it should be Sunday and not Saturday!  I went for my walk and stopped by the grocery store on the way back.  BIG MISTAKE.  They were packed.  I only got four things, but it took a long time to check out.  I should have known better this close to a holiday!  Oh well, I got what I needed and headed home.  I came home and relaxed a bit and then did today's workouts.  I got those done and had time to relax before fixing lunch.

For dinner, my friend carried us to Aunt Millie's in Milton, NC.  It was the first time we'd been since that time we went and both our pizzas were gross.  They more than made up for it this time.  It was delicious and I have a lot left over for tomorrow. ^__^  On the way back into town, he stopped at McDonald's and got me a caramel macchiato.  YAY!  I went with him to the dollar store to pick up a few things he needed.  He got me a couple of dollar items while we were in there.  I have left over pizza and goodies in the house. ^_^

Tomorrow is Christmas eve.  It seems like it was just the beginning of the month.  I'll be glad when all this holiday crap is over with!  I want things to get back to normal!  I'm not sure if I'll go to my friend's house tomorrow or on Christmas day to give them their gifts.  I called today but no one answered and I didn't get a call back.  Yes, the same friend from yesterday!  Phooey!  

I am going to get off the computer after posting this. I've already done my French lesson. I want to play more Pocket Camp.  Yes, I'm addicted, but it's so cute!  I love the animals, especially Goldie and Rosie.  They are my favorites. ^_^


Coffee, coffee, and more coffee!

I started out the day with coffee.  I had breakfast and then went for my walk.  I didn't do my usual today.  Where I would usually turn around and head back, I kept going.  I stopped by the post office but I didn't have any letters.  I walked down to the Crossing and then walked around there for a bit until my friend came and picked me up.  He wanted to run to Reidsville today and I told him I'd go if I got in my walk first.  He went to a couple of pawn shops and we both went into a thrift store.  I didn't find anything I wanted.  We ate at Carmela's pizza and it was delicious as usual.

After eating, we headed to McDonald's and I got a Caramel macchiato and drank it on the way home.  I came home and did my workouts.  I am currently drying a load of clothes.  I've already done my French lesson for today.  I just have a few more things I need to do online, and then I am going to relax and play Pocket Camp on my Android.  It's a cute and fun game and I forgot to log in yesterday so I'm pretty sure I lost my streak.  Phooey!


More Starbucks?!

Yes, more!  I was sitting here and I had finished my Macchiato.  I remembered that I had a free drink on my card so I decided to get my favorite Cascara latte.  I got it in venti and I had them add the caramel sprinkles from a caramel brulee! LOL  I am not sure if that is how to spell it as I can't see the sign from here! :P  I was at the register, minding my own business when this package of Starbucks peppermint bark called my name!  I had to buy that, too. :P  I absolutely LOVE peppermint.  I just had to have it.  I get the Hershey peppermint kisses at this time of year and they are so good!  I also love the Ghiardelli peppermint bark.  You would think we my love to peppermint, I'd get a peppermint white mocha every time I come in here.  Well, I used to!  I am trying to cut back on calories. That is why I get the cascara latte.  I also get it with almond milk which reduces the calories even more!

I wrote a pen pal letter just a bit ago and I've done some on NaNo.  I only got 1459 words done.  I am not sure if I'm going to do any more.  That will probably be my lowest daily word count.  I am not sure if I want to do more or not.  I'm getting close to being complete on word count, but I'm running out of things to write about!  I was thinking of making this into a trilogy, but I think next years Nano will be something entirely different.  I don't know what else to add to this particular story!

I can always add new characters, but I already have a LOT of them.  Oh well, I am going to get back to Nano and try to get a few more words in before I give up for the night. Wish me luck on driving home as my car was being a total bitch getting here!

PS I got a few more of the gift cards too.  They have a ceramic Virginia tumbler that I want SO much but it's over twenty dollars.  They do have a ceramic ornament that looks just like it for ten.  I might have to get one before the season is over if they still have them!

 


Starbucks Sunday...

Yeah, here it is Sunday again and here I am at Starbucks.  I decided at the last minute to come and bring my laptop and one pen pal letter.  I had to wait to get a little table with an outlet, but I didn't have to wait long. I'm not at my favorite table, but this one is not bad.  I have already started on today's NaNo.  I only have 483 words so far.  I will probably keep going until I hit 2000  that is what I like to get a day if possible.  We'll see if I can do it today!

I'm sitting here with a caramel machiatto.  I had a promo where any caramel macchiato gets you ten bonus stars.  I'm all about the bonus stars! LOL!  I got that and  I'm blogging.  After I write this, I'll get back to NaNo.  I got more of the holiday Starbucks cards today.  I got four or the die cut ones.  The Barista said that you can get any of them without loading them except the multipacks.  Since the cards in the multi packs are the same ones as the individual ones, I don't mind that one bit. I think there is one that I didn't get last time, but I looked for it today and didn't see it.  I will have to check again when I get home to see what I'm missing.  They do have some that have greeting cards with them. I wonder if they are okay to get without a load?  That would be cool.  One of the giftcards in that is pretty cool looking and I want it! LOL!

It was really busy when I got here, but it's cleared out a lot since then.  I thought they were having another promotion when I pulled up and saw all the cars! LOL  It was insanity.  I'm thinking it will clear out even more as the evening progresses.  Right now, It's not too bad.  I just wish I could get my table. :p Oh well!  At least I have a good one, right?  Okay, I'm going back to NaNo now.  I need to get the rest done and then I'll write that one single pen pal letter!


Saturday sabotage!

Okay, so maybe not that serious.  I got up and got ready for my walk today.  I heard a loud noise outside and thought to myself, what the heck was that!?  I looked out and didn't see anything so I turned around and then I noticed that the light was off.  I thought I had turned it on.  I looked around and noticed that none of my displays were lit.  Yup, something knocked the power out!

I went for my walk and hoped that it would be on when I got back. I wanted to get home, drink a cup of coffee and relax before doing my workouts.  The power was still out!  I texted a friend and he suggested we go eat since my power was out.  I couldn't fix coffee or do my workouts without power, so I said, yes!  We went to Reidsville, NC to a pizza place called Carmela's.  They have delicious pizza.  Afterwards, we wanted ice cream and I wanted coffee! LOL!  We went to the McDonald's.  He got ice cream and he got me one of their caramel macchiatos.  It wasn't bad!  

We came back to town and I came in and the lights were back. Yay!  I put my leftover pizza in the fridge and came to my room and did my workouts.  I got those done and then read some on Not Always Right.  I ate my leftovers for dinner and then did my NaNo for today. I got over 2000 words today and I am now past the 40,000 mark!  Yay!  All I have left to do is my French lesson on Duolingo and then I'm going to read with my Kindle until bed. ^_^


New tags!

My new tags came today and I had to put them on the car.  I washed my car and then put them on.  I drove to dry the car and ended up at the drive thru at Starbucks. :p  Well, I had Starbux tags, I had to go to Starbucks with them, right?! :D  So, I took a couple of pictures. One a close up of the tag, one of the car with the tag with Starbucks in the background, and one of my drink.  It was a grande Cascara latte.  Sadly, it seems they are fazing out my beloved Cascara syrup. NOOOOO! :(  I'll just have to switch to caramel macciattos when they do!  Here are the pictures I took:

 

 So, there you go.  What do you think?  I love them. ^_^

I got my walk in and my workouts done. I just need to do NaNo.  I am really ahead on NaNo, so I don't mind waiting a little later to get started.  I hope to get at least 2000 words tonight, if not, it's okay.  Like I said, I'm way ahead.  I went to the grocery store and found a some Starbucks coffee that was K-cups with flavor packets. IT's Caffe Latte in caramel.  I am going to fix a cup to drink during NaNo.  I hope it's delicious as it sounds!
