Sunday morning post

Ah, it's nice to be posting from the beach and not on my way home! The two extra days are definitely nice! I am probably going to walk to the Springmaid pier today.  It's either today or tomorrow! LOL. I am running out of time. Yikes!  I will visit it and walk on it and enjoy that.  

I took a few pictures of the beach a few minutes ago. I should have some interesting shots later after walking to the pier!  At least I think so. :P. Here are the ones I have for now:

Saturday afternoon post

I got in a nice walk today.  I went down Ocean Boulevard to the little 'park' that is right next to the Ocean Park hotel.  I deployed a couple of Munzees there.  I also walked down the little ramp and took a few beach pictures from beach level.  I'll share those and later there is a pic of a little pond? That I have taken a picture of before but always on the other side.  This time I happened to go down the other street and took a picture.  I went to two stores.  Whales (a beachwear store) and Sugar Life.  I got a shirt, a decal and a mask at Whales.  I got a shirt and some bulk candy at Sugar Life.  That was fun.  I didn't make it up to I Love Sugar this trip so I got some bulk at Sugar Life.  The shirt is cute! It wanted the same shirt in white, but the material was really thin and my bra would show. AH! lol

I walked back to Ocean Boulevard and walked back to the hotel.  I got to meet and pet and cute Pitbull on my way back.  Such a cutie!  I deployed a munzee and Sugar Life too, I forgot about that.  Here are the pictures.

Letters and lattes...

Well, letters, no lattes. Phooey!  I got all of my pen pal letters written today and mailed!  Whoo hoo! I'm so glad to have them done.  I got only one at the post office, so I'm now all caught up and have a new one.  It was a good thing to get them all done.  I went to the car wash while out and washed my car.  It needed a fresh wash.  I was going to do it here, but since I was already out, I went ahead and got it done.  I was tempted to go to Starbucks, but I was good and didn't go.  

When I was in the car wash, I took a picture of the pretty rainbow foam.  I always call it unicorn pee. :p. It's pretty, but this time it didn't go on very thick.

Exciting, isn't it? :p


Cute Bun!

I meant to post this the other day when I took the picture.  There is a little bunny that lives in my yard.  I see him quite often.  I saw him in the driveway one day when I went out to head out for a bit.  I zoomed in so you could see him better.  He is such a little cute bun! :)

It may be a bit blurry because it was zoomed in, but I hope you like it anyway.  I love that my yard is a haven for so many cute animals. I've seen bunnies, deer, groundhogs, a possum, tons of squirrels, and plenty of birds.  


Monday madness!

Well, not much madness, just the usual Monday stuff. :p. I went out for a quick errand earlier and ended up down at the Crossing. I didn't walk on the trail, but I did take a picture of the hammocks they have down there now.  These are neat.  I wanted to try one out, but I didn't get up the nerve. I'm scared I'll fall out trying to get in. LOL

One day I'll try one.  I also went to Ballou Park and stopped at this little shelter.  This spot used to have two picnic tables and a trash can.  They took it out and I was a bit upset. My mom and I had a picnic lunch there one day many years ago and I was sad to see it go.  I didn't know that they were going to put in a little shelter here and they put back two tables to the right!  It looks nice and it makes me feel better.

It looks nice, doesn't it?  It also has a little parking area (which I parked in).  Before, you just pulled off to a little gravel side spot.  This is a very nice addition to the park. :)


Sunday again....

Yes, I know I haven't posted in several days. I just haven't had the energy to post anything.  I got out today though.  I went to a few places and I stopped by a dam on the Riverwalk and took a few pictures.  I didn't go on the trail, though. I just got a few pictures to share.  I hope to get back to my daily posts here tomorrow, but we'll see how it goes. For now, enjoy these pictures I took!

Art installation at a stopping point on the trail.  There are benches (as you can see) and tables here.

The dam.  It's higher than usual because we had some rain recently.

The Union Street bridge that is near the dam.  I took the dam picture and this from the same spot.  I just turned in different directions to take them.

Looking from the area back toward the parking lot. My cute little Note is in this picture. :)  I deployed a physical Munzee while down there too!

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!
