Coffee Feed

Welcome October!

It's the first day of the best month of the year. It is tradition (well except for a few months in early Covid times)that I go to Starbucks on the first day of the month to start the month off right.  I realized today that I had used my bigger amount of stars for a latte on National Coffee day.  I then realized that my card only had a little over a dollar on it. D'oh! Then I remembered that a Cafe Misto (which I've never tried) is only 50 stars.  I had enough for that, so I ordered in app to make sure it would only be 50 stars.  I made my first mobile order.  I added a few extras and I still got it for 50 stars.

I went over and got in line at the drive-thru and told them I had a mobile order.  I got to see one of my two favorite Baristas. I haven't seen her since before Covid.   It was good to see her.  I got my Misto and tried it.  I am not sure what I think.  I added some stuff and I think that affected my opinion.  If I order one again, I'll try a different combo.  It was ... I liked it, but I didn't?  It was strange.  I will try it again without one thing I added. I think that is what threw me off.

Anyway!  It was nice to try something new and I got my first of the month Starbucks. :) I'm not sure what the rest of the day will bring.  I don't have anything planned.  I hit a Pokestop while I was out so I don't need to worry about that.  I actually got it at the old Starbucks location that is nearby.  They still haven't updated the Pokestop to the new location.  I even put in a request in the PoGo app to change it but they haven't.  The location moved THREE years ago. D'oh!


National Coffee Day!

It's National Coffee Day!  I guess you know where I went to celebrate.  Yes, Starbucks! I hit the drive thru and got some hot delicious coffee.  I asked the Barista as I was leaving when they'd allow dining in again and she said they already did!  As long as you are wearing a mask when you are not eating or drinking.  I'm psyched!  I like to do at least one writing session in Starbucks during NaNoWriMo! :D

Monday morning post

Hello, hello!  I got to bed around 1 am last night but I didn't sleep very well.  I woke up at 7:30 or so and got up long enough to take a early morning picture of the sky:

Pretty!  I don't get up early enough to take pictures like this so I was glad to get it.  I laid back down and tried to sleep.  I turned off my Fitbit alarm when it went off.  I still laid there a while and I finally got my booty up! I made a mediocre cup of coffee.  At least it's coffee! LOL!

I went out just a few minutes ago and took these:

As you can see it's a beautiful day here.  I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing today. We ordered Denny's from UberEats last night and it was delicious!  I built my own sammich! :p. Grilled chicken breast with bbq sauce, cheese, and bacon.  It was delicious! My friend ordered a burger and he said his burger was delicious too.  It was sooo good.  I know we'll be visiting Denny's while we are here. lol

I wanted to add one more picture. I took this last night on the beach with the Pixel.  I used 'night vision' on the camera settings.  I think it turned out nicely!

Welcome September!

It's the first day of September and it's starting off okay. It was cooler today so that was nice.  I had to run out and pick up a package for a friend and I needed to pick up my prescription.  I did that and then I headed to Starbucks!  I got myself a nice latte and then went and captured two Munzees and deployed one.  I headed back in after that.  My friend came after work to pick up his package and brought some KFC to share. Yum!  I even got to keep the leftovers. Score! :p

I took a picture of my delicious latte on my dash with Starbucks as the background.  Enjoy!

It was tasty if a bit too sweet. (My fault entirely!) I wish they'd bring back the Maple pecan latte! I want one!  


It's my birthday!

What did I do to celebrate?  I went to mail back my old phone.  I checked my box and had some letters.  I washed my car because it needed it and I was too lazy to do it at home! I left there and went to Starbucks.  I got my birthday drink.  I sipped on it and went to the park to sit by my favorite tree for a bit. I hung out in the park a bit and then went and got gas for my car.  I filled it up / topped it off and it was only $8 so that was nice.  I did take some pictures.  Two in the post office and one of the darkening sky when I was sitting in the park.

I thought it was going to rain, but it never did. The sky was pretty though!  My friend texted me from work and said he was bringing by a hoagie from a local place.  Steak and cheese. It was delicious!  It was a good birthday lunch.  What's for dinner?  My favorite, hash brown casserole! :D. Yum.  That is too delicious meals today.  The Starbucks was pretty darn good, too! :p


Sunday and Starbucks!

I went out this afternoon and went by Starbucks and treated myself to a latte and a sandwich!  I got a vanilla latte with caramel and a double-smoked bacon sandwich. Delicious!  I also washed my car while out. It has rained the past few days and I noticed mud on my car.  It was from where it rained so hard that it splashed on the car.  I decided while out to wash it.  I could have brought it back here, but I went by the car wash that has the 'all washes $5' and they were fixed and running!  

I didn't do anything else while out.  I ate my sandwich near the Starbucks and then headed to the car wash.  I sipped on my coffee and still had a little when I got home which I enjoyed in the car while watching my resident groundhog.  The little cutie came out from one of my outbuildings.  He tried to climb a little tree out there and fell off.  Poor guy!  He was okay, though.  He is such a cutie!

I went in the house and got the trash together and carried it to the can. I put it on the street for the trash trucks tomorrow.  I also noticed some branches down and carried them to the street too.  The grass needs mowing again, but it's still wet, so I'll have to wait until at least tomorrow for that.  I came in and put away the laundry I washed yesterday, tossed the bed linen in the dryer, washed my hair, and then sat down for a bit.  I got a lot accomplished.  I might read some, I'm not sure. I finally finished my current read.  I started in early last month!  I didn't pick it up as much as other reads, so it took me a long time to finish.  I am probably going with a zombie or post-apocalyptic book next.  I usually devour those pretty darn quickly!

OH! I forgot to mention that yesterday when I went to Reidsville, I set off a 'blast' on Munzee. It is the one that will capture up to 50 virtual Munzees that are in the area of up to a mile (or a bit over, I forget). Anyway! I did it and I got 50 virtuals.  Cool!  I was going to go around and deploy some physical munzees today, but I wanted to give everything a chance to dry out a little more!


Oops, impulse!

I just ordered another Fossil bag on eBay.  It was one I was looking at when I bought the cute little striped one.  I got an alert today that a bag on my watch list was about to end via auction. It was cheap and still at the opening bid, so I decided to bid on it. I won with the opening bid. Yay! It's another fabric one and a pattern I've wanted for a while now.  I'll take pictures when it gets here.

I ran to the grocery store today to get a few things I missed when I went earlier.  I participate in a program they have that when you buy x amount of something in different departments, you get some money back on a future trip. (Example, spend $30 in frozen, get $5 back.) I had enough rewards today that my total was free.  That was crazy! I didn't mind though! 

I got myself a treat at the store today. I bought a pint of ice cream. Not just any ice cream, but coffee ice cream. Yummy!  I used to get a coffee ice cream from Starbucks, it was in grocery stores. It was SO good.  I decided to give this a try.  I wish Starbucks still made it.  I haven't tried this yet, but I'm hoping it's good.  Coffee ice cream? How could it be bad? :P


Friday morning post

I am up a little early as I couldn't sleep. It's is another beautiful day here! The forecast was for thunderstorms and rain all day.  I'm glad it was wrong!  I took one picture of the beach and one of my setup here.  I am not sure what I'm doing today.  We'll see.  I might walk out to 17 again or I might walk up Ocean Blvd. or I might do a beach walk.  I haven't decided yet.  For now, I'm going to sit and relax a bit. I'll fix something to eat, drink some coffee and then decide!

Thursday morning post

Hello there!  It is nice and hot today at Myrtle Beach! The weather last night said it was supposed to be raining this morning, but it is definitely NOT raining!  I am not complaining one bit.  I was going to post this from the balcony, but it's hot as hell out there and I could barely see the screen. :p

I came in and I am not in airconditioned comfort but I can still see that beautiful ocean! It's definitely a lovely day and a big contrast to yesterday!  I am not sure exactly what I'm going to do today.  Walk or relax or...?  We'll see!  Right now I'm cooling off.  

I took three pictures today to share. Two of the ocean and one of my chair with my Macbook Pro and Starbucks tumbler of coffee.  Sadly it's room coffee and not Starbucks coffee, but you make do! :P

Wednesday afternoon post

Well, we went out and went up to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to the Goodwill up there and my friend went to a pawn shop and a guitar store.  We also went to Tuesday Morning.  I got washi. (like I really need more!) and a few other things for journaling.  I spent $18 and I have no idea how. LOL

I only got a package of Scotch tape at Goodwill.  LOL, It was new in pack two-pack of scotch tape for .50 so I bought it!  I didn't get a chance to look at a lot of other stuff because the section I like to browse in was full of people.  I was about to lose my temper, so I left!

On the way back into Myrtle, we passed a Starbucks with a drive-thru that wasn't busy and my friend stopped so I could get a latte.  It was delicious, too!  They didn't have cascara syrup either, oh well.  The drink I got was pretty darn good.  Another freebie with stars! I took a picture of the tops of some tress outside the pawnshop while waiting.  I also took a picture of the ocean from the room when we got back.  It's calmed down quite a lot.
