Starbucks!

I got four of the five die cut Valentine's Starbucks cards.  I went over to Target to get the one I missed.  They were completely out of the die cut cards.  I got a cascara latte and then went to the regular Starbucks.  The place was practically deserted. ~_~;;;;;;  Figures!  I got the card I needed and eleven other cards I didn't have. Yay!  They also had some adorable ceramic gift card holders. They look like a Starbucks bag.  I got one for my collection.  It was on sale, too. Yay!  I took a picture of the 'new' cards and the cool ceramic 'bag'.

I was glad to find that Valentines card at the top left.  They had two cards this year.  This 'paper' one and a regular plastic one.  I was lucky to get both.  I already had the plastic one.  While I was out, I went by Office Depot and picked up another 25 pack of the business card holders because I actually used all the ones from the last pack!  

I got in my walk today, too.  It was a bit windy, but I made it through.  They were calling for up to 50mph winds.  Luckily it only kicked up a few times.  I actually used bobby pins to keep my hat on. lol


Recycle and coffee?

I went to do my monthly recycling today and while I was out, I got gas.  After that, I found myself very close to Starbucks. Guess where I went? LOL  I had another free drink on my card, so I got a cascara latte and it was delicious!  I left there and headed home.  A while ago when I was about to fix dinner, I realized that I needed milk for what I was making.  I ran to the dollar store and got some plus a couple of other things I needed.  I left my car running with it locked while I was in there.  When I came out, it had turned off. :( . Luckily I was able to get it started.  It took a few tries and I was a bit concerned.  I came home and fixed dinner.  

My walk today was niiiiiice! It was in the 60's and I was able to walk in short sleeves.  That was a nice change.  It's supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. Yay!  I love walking when it's not cold.  I hope this better weather hangs on until summer.  I'm sure it won't, but I can hope!


Letters and lattes....

I went to the post office tonight. I needed to check my box so I could see how many letters I have.  I got six new ones.  I also wrote nine letters.  I'm all caught up on the ones I got and now I just have the new ones.  While I was out, I went to Starbucks.  Luckily, they still had some cascara syrup.  The last time I was there, the barista said she thought they were almost out.  When I went tonight, I asked if they still had some.  They said, yes! I got my cascara latte.  When I got to the window, he told me that they had to go in the back and look.  I think I got some syrup from the last bottle.  I'll try to get over there and get more before they run out!

I brought my latte home and wrote my letters.  I have a nice stack of them to mail out on tomorrow's walk.  I'll get to the new ones in a few days. I'm trying to get this year off right and keep up with my letters and answer them quickly.  Of the six I got today, one is from my favorite penpal and one is another new letter from an inmate. ~_~;  I probably will pass on that one.  I have written (and do) write to a few inmates, but it's really not that great.  We don't have anything in common.  Plus, even though I mention in my welcome letter that I'm single and like it that way, they all seem to think I want a boyfriend.  NO THANK YOU!  If I did want a relationship, it sure wouldn't be with someone in jail.

 


From France to Greece to Virginia!

I had a French Starbucks card on my watch list on eBay for a while.  I decided to buy a couple of them.  The seller was in Greece.  So I got two French cards all the way from Greece.  Athens Greece to be specific.  I love getting foreign cards and it's cool to get stamps from other countries, too.

I walked today.  It was quite cold out there too.  Luckily I was bundled up so much that I only felt the cold on my hands and face.  Everything else was totally covered.  It's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow. WHOO HOO! Heat wave.. :p 

Oh, I meant to post a picture of the cool Starbucks cards.  I also forgot to mention that the other night I went to Target to return something and while I was there, I went in the Starbucks and got some of the Valentines Starbucks cards.  Yay!  Here is the French cards that I got from Greece:

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.  


Welcome 2019

It is now 2019 and it was in the 60's today!  It was very nice outside for my walk.  Such a big change from the rain yesterday.  I enjoyed my walk quite a bit!  It was great to walk in short sleeves. ^_^

In other news, I ended 2018 by going to Starbucks and I started 2019 with the same. :P . My friend who never wants to go when I ask wanted to go tonight.  I hadn't really planned to go today, but when she agreed, I couldn't say no. lol 

I never found a way to watch ABC last night. :( . I had to watch a stream of NBC and I didn't know that they didn't show the ball drop.  The live stream was also a few minutes behind, so I actually saw it hit midnight before they showed it.  I was not happy.  Hopefully, ABC will get with the program and get local streaming in my area by next year!

 


Goodbye 2018

It's hard to believe that this year is almost over.  Just a few more hours and we get to start anew.  It was overcast when I left for my walk today.  The weather apps said it would not rain during my walk.  Well, my weather apps, LIED.  As soon as my feet hit the street and I started up my street, it began raining. It rained for almost my entire walk.  I was not amused!  I was quite happy when I got home.  I had to put my clothes in the dryer.  I also put my shoes on either side of the heater to dry them out, too.  

I mailed off letters during today's walk and then I had one more I needed to mail after I got home.  I decided to mail that and went to Starbucks while I was out. Yay! It was delicious, of course. :p  I wanted to end the year right.

With my walk and my trip to Starbucks, I also took down my Yule tree.  It took longer than it should because all the lights decided they wanted to get tangled up. lol . I was finally able to get them all off and packed away.  Everything is back in the boxes for next year.  I am going to relax the rest of the evening and get ready to watch the ball drop on TV.  I  was able to stream that last year, so I'm hoping I'll be able to again this year. It won't feel like New Year's Eve without that!

Back at it!

So, I got up today and I still didn't feel great, but I got my butt up and went for my walk.  I was glad to get back to it.  I got it in and then came home and relaxed for a bit.  I washed my hair and my bed linen.  I just have to put the linens back on the bed.  I thought about going to Starbucks, but I never got motivated enough to get up and go! I still could go as it's early, but I don't know.  Maybe I can run over and hit the drive thru?  I am not sure I even feel like getting dressed to go out! 

I still haven't taken down my tree. I wish I had the room to store it like it is.  I'd just wrap it in plastic wrap and call it good until next year. LOL!  I hope all my new lights still work next year, too.  I might run to Target next week and see if they have any of the blue lights still available.  I'm sure they'll be on sale.  I could buy a few boxes as backups.

 


Ouch ouch ouch

My poor head is killing me at the moment.  I have the headache from hell.  I didn't sleep well last night and then woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston today and go to a pawn shop, a Goodwill, and to eat.  He asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go.  He would buy lunch and get me some things at the thrift store.  I went.  I usually find a lot of things at that particular Goodwill, but I only found a little bag with various office supplies and a pair of black flats.  I have been needing a pair of nice black flats. These look pretty much brand new, too.  They are comfy and I like them a lot. 

We ate at Dini's brothers. It's a pizza / sub place in SoBo.  We split a pizza and it was good.  When we got back to Danville, we went to the Goodwill here.  I found more goodies.  A journal, a digital camera kit, a Spirograph with all the pieces but one, some cute stationery, and two Starbucks tumblers!! They are from 2007 and they are both grande size.  The lid on one of them wasn't the right lid, but the other one's lid fit on both, and I wouldn't be using both at the same time anyway!  I couldn't pass them up for .99 each!

Oh, I also got a caramel macchiato at the McDonald's as we were leaving SoBo.  It was pretty tasty, too! I was hoping to spot some extra cases for my iPad Mini at the thrift stores. I have seen them before.  I like having a variety of cases. lol 

My Fossil canvas purse came today and it's so cute.  I'll have to do another post after this and do a picture post of some of today's goodies. I would do it with this post, but I'm sitting under the hair bonnet hair dryer so it's not possible at the moment. I took several pictures of the Starbucks tumblers, but I haven't taken one of the purse yet.  It's khaki colored canvas and it has a cute yellow floral interior.  It's a small bag, but it holds everything I need.  The front zipper pocket can be used as a wallet if you want.  I like it.  I'll post my haul in a bit after my hair is dry.  The heat from the dryer is very soothing to my painful head!

Another thing I needed came in today's mail.  My closet light went out recently.  To turn it on and off, you pull a string from the light bulb adapter thingee.  My adapter thingee quit working so I ordered one from Amazon. It's nice to have light in my closet again. I had tried one of those tap lights, but it wasn't nearly enough light.  I am glad to have this fixed again.

Now, I just need to finish drying my hair and I'll post some of my goodies. :)
