Phooey!

I didn't get to walk today.  Why? Well, my friend got off earlier and was coming to try and get my water heater fixed.  Sadly, I could have walked because he didn't get here until after I would have gotten back.  Oh well.  He didn't get the water heater fixed.  There is still water down there.  He did get the pump set up down there so it will always be ready to go.  It should now come on and keep the basement from flooding.  Hopefully he'll be able to get down there and get the whole thing fixed when the water goes down.  It's so frustrating!

I still have not heard one word from the seller on ebay about her sending me the wrong purse.  If she doesn't respond soon, I'm going to leave negative feedback and report her to ebay.  I do not like to be treated like that.  I'm hoping she makes it right, but at this point, I seriously doubt it.

I got an unexpected treat today of $30 to spend at Amazon.  Just after I bought the stylus. lol . So, I bought some ink for my printer, a three pack of Mildliners, and some blue ball point pens. (Just to round out the amount.) . I've wanted some Mildliners for a long time.  They have been on my wishlist forever.  I decided to treat myself to some. ^_^ . They and the other things should come Saturday.  Everything I got was Prime eligible.  The pens are a brand I've never heard of, but I figured I'd give them a try.  I love pens so it's always fun to try new ones.

I'm off to play with GoodNotes.  I found a bunch of templates and things online that I want to import in and play with. I'll do a GoodNotes review soon.  Also, I'll be talking about my latest game obsession, Board Kings!

 


Sunday again....

I didn't forget to post yesterday, I just didn't do it.  It was a totally lazy day yesterday.  I didn't walk or do anything else either. I could have walked as it didn't start doing anything until later, but I just didn't.  I didn't walk today either,, but it was wet and gross today.  So much for the snow.  We got rain and some ice and that was about it.  

I have been a lazy lump today for sure.  I didn't even leave the house.  I did get my hair washed and my bed linen washed. I just need to put it back on the bed.  I am planning on getting back to walking tomorrow and getting back on track.  At least that is the plan. :p

My purse should FINALLY be delivered tomorrow.  Expedited shipping my ass!  I ordered it on the 5th and the seller didn't even create the label until the 9th and then didn't take it to the post office until the 10th.  Just in case, I went and took screen shots of the listing in case I get sent the 'wrong' thing.  I'm beginning to think that the seller meant to have it as a starting bid and not buy it now, but who knows.  Hopefully, it will be just like the pictures.  

 


Winter weather is coming.

It was very cold today.  I didn't walk.  I should have, but I knew it was going to be cold, so I didn't.  My friend wanted to go to our favorite local pizza place so I did go out.  It was just as cold as I thought it would be. BRR!  My friend got us both a pizza each.  He said it would be good to have in case we do get the bad weather.  I only ate two slices of mine, so I have a lot left.  I'll probably eat something else for dinner tonight and save the pizza for tomorrow and Sunday.

I realized that I might not walk tomorrow because of the cold again.  I needed to get my prescription.  That way, if it did get bad out there, I'd have my prescription and wouldn't have to worry about going out to get it in bad weather.  I think we are going to get more ice than snow. Boo!

I have a game on my iPad that I love. I'm pretty sure it's available on Android too. It's called Puzzle Page.  Every day there is a collection of games.  There are usually a word search and crossword.  There are also other types of puzzles. It's fun.  It's gotten me to try different puzzles that I might not have tried before.  I have been enjoying the Sudoku puzzles.  I'm still playing at easy level, but I've hoping to go to harder levels as I learn more.  Puzzle Pages is a lot of fun.  If you like puzzles, check it out!


Windy weather

Today's walk was quite a bit cooler than yesterday's.  It was also crazy windy too.  When I was coming back, it felt like it would have been faster and to turn around and let the wind blow me the other way. lol   I got through though and came home.

My friend came to try to get my pilot light lit on my water heater.  There was still some water down there and he didn't have his rubber boots, so he couldn't go down there.  Hopefully it will be fixed eventually.  I would like to have hot water for my dishes, at least!

 I was able to stop at the pharmacy and drop off my new insurance card.  I'm glad to have that done.  I think there should be a way to do all this online. It's 2019, not 1995! Sheesh!  Oh well.  I have been using this pharmacy for a year now since Kmart closed. I still don't like it.  If my car was always dependable, I'd transfer it somewhere else!

The temperature tomorrow isn't supposed to get up to 40 all day.  I hope it's not windy, too.  I'll walk, but I'll have to bundle up more. I'm trying not to miss any walks this week in case it does snow this weekend.  That could possibly keep me from walking for a few days.

 


Rain again

I swear it's never going to dry out here.  I decided to skip my walk today. I did not feel like holding the umbrella through the entire walk!  I just stayed in and stayed dry.  I did go out in the evening. My friend wanted to go to Roma and get pizza, so we did.  He ran me by the post office while we were out and I got a bunch of mail.  Quite a few pen pal letters and information from my newer insurance.  I didn't think any of that was ever going to come.   That is one less thing to stress about.

I realized today that I didn't get any granola bars when I went to the grocery store yesterday.  I usually get enough boxes to get me through the month. I eat one for breakfast everyday.  I will get them tomorrow.  They are two for five dollars this week, but for one day only, tomorrow, they are three for five dollars.  I'll get them on my way home from my walk.  Hopefully they'll have plenty. 

I started one of the jigsaw puzzles I got for myself.  The pieces are smaller than I'd prefer, but they aren't too bad.  Here is what I have so far:

Wowee!

My friend got me a pump for my basement that is supposed to come on when the water gets a certain depth.  I haven't been down there in a while so I didn't know how much there was.  It was deep.  He turned on the pump and we kept it on for several hours. I would have left it going, but it's supposed to rain tomorrow and since it was so deep to begin with, he couldn't go down there to plug it in.  It's plugged into an extension cord and into an outside outlet.  I went down before I unplugged it for the night and there is still a LOT of water down there. It's crazy!

Hopefully once we get this water out and this thing is installed, I won't have this problem anymore.  That is the hope! It's now been almost 2 months since I had hot water and it's getting very old.  I got in a decent walk today.  It rained again last night, so the ground was wet in some places and there were some puddles on the sidewalk.   All this rain is nuts.

I came home and got some things done and then my friend came to install the pump.  After he left, I went to get gas and then went to the grocery store.  I knew I would be in the store awhile as I was getting most of this month's groceries.  I didn't leave it running because I was afraid it would overheat.

Luckily I was able to get it to start right away.  I didn't go anywhere else. I didn't want to risk it.  I am glad that I was able to get some groceries. I was out of just about everything!  Most of the stuff I got was on sale too.  Only a few things weren't. I also got a set of cute snowman face cups discounted from the holiday stuff. I love snowmen and I can always use more coffee cups. :p

 

 


Happy Holidays

I’m glad that is over!  I walked today and it was weird to see everything closed.  I got to see a few cute dogs along my walk. :). I also stopped by the neighbor’s house and loved on Zeus the dog.  He is such a sweetie pie. All I wanted to do after my walk was to come home, put on my give up on life pants and do absolutely nothing.  Sadly, I didn’t get to do that!  I was expected to go to my friend’s house to eat.  I got to see all my favorite pups, though! Cocoa, Daisy, and the demon dog Ceaser. Lol. I also saw Percy and a sweet Roxie!  Roxie at one point, climbed in an chair and onto the kitchen table. LOL!  She is such a silly!  I snuggled her a bunch.  

I ate and stayed a bit and then came home.  They made me feel bad because they gave me gifts and I just didn’t have the money to buy any this year.  I got a cute Intuitions bracelet, a grocery store gift card and a Starbucks gift card.  I stayed a bit after eating and then headed home.

I waited until dark and then went to my car. I did my tradition of going down Riverside drive and seeing everything closed.  I also went to a few neighborhoods to see lights, but not a lot of people decorated.  When I was a child, most everyone decorated.  Not so much now.  Oh well.  I did that and came home.  Sheets was open (convenience store that has made to order food) but they were BUSY.  I knew they would be and hadn’t planned to go anyway! I didn’t take my extra key so I couldn’t have anyway.

 


Much better!

I got up today and took my walk.  I came so close to skipping it and staying in bed.  I prevented myself from backing out and staying home by taking my bed linen off the bed and throwing it in the washer.  That way, my bed wouldn't be much fun to get back into.  

It was nice to get back to it.  I wanted to go to the post office, but I figured since it was my first day back to walking in almost a week, I should just skip that part. I did run into Dollar General on the way back and picked up a few things I needed.  

I came home and was happy to relax!  I played some bingo on the iPad.  I washed my hair and my bed linen.  I just need to put the bed linen back on the bed.  I've already done my French lesson, too.  I finished my current read last night and I'm starting a new one tonight. 

I hope to get to the post office tomorrow.  I really need to go.  I have some things that I need to pick up that I know are there.  I have informed delivery at my post office box and at home!  It keeps me from going when I don't have anything in my box. :)  


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. :)


Oops!

Yeah, I almost forgot to post to my blog today.  Sorry, it’s just been one of those days.  I left for my walk today and my friend was  outside with Cocoa, her mini Doxie.  I adore Cocoa and don’t get to see her enough, so I stopped!  I got to love on my little Cocoa for quite a while.  I also got to see my favorite German Shepard, Daisy!  I decided to just skip my walk and came back home.  I’ve been a lazy slug all day. I’ve played bingo on the iPad and watched The Addam’s Family. Lol
