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
i walked again today. The sun was out for most of my walk. It sprinkled just a bit near the end, but it wasn't enough to have to use my umbrella. That was a good thing! I got to see one of my neighbors dogs that I love. His name is Zeus and he is a a big ole sweetie pie. i also saw a guy that usually has beagles. His current beagle was with him today and he had him in a Santa suit! Cutest Santa ever! I should have taken a picture.
I got to warm water up on the stove to wash my hair today. I haven't been down to try and get my water heaters pilot light lit in over a week. The last time I went down was Saturday. A week a go yesterday. I was hoping to get it lit before the big snowfall, but I didn't. My friend came and tried to get it lit too, but no luck. He is going to come back again sometime and try again. His plant is on vacation from the end of this week through the new year, so hopefully I'll have hot water soon.
Sorry about yesterday. It was almost midnight and I didn't have a chance to make a real post. I just posted a quick line and called it good. Yesterday, it rained a lot. That helped with the snow a lot. I went out to check my route and it was looking much better. It was supposed to rain some today too, but it wasn't raining at my regular walk time.
I went for my walk. There were several places where I had to be very careful not to slip and a few places I had to walk in the road a bit to get around huge piles that were still there. I was able to get my walk in successfully though. It was nice to get back at it. It was overcast for my walk until I got on the way back and then it started to rain. I had to use my umbrella the rest of the walk. At least it wasn't too much of my walk. I got home and had to put my clothes in the dryer and put my shoes by the heater. My shoes got pretty wet, my clothes only a little bit.
I am glad I was able to get back out there and walk. Of course, it was hard to get back to it, too. I almost talked myself into waiting one more day. I needed to get back to it. Hopefully tomorrow I won't get my shoes wet!
No walk again today, but I got a stack of letters caught up. I'm so relieved to do that. I have put them off way too long. I'm so glad to have a stack to mail. I still don't have enough stamps for them all. I hope to be able to walk in a few days and I'll get the stamps I need then and mail the stack.
I was able to get my car unstuck today. I went out and shoveled some snow around my car. I got in and drove forward and backward. I was able to get it dislodged. I backed out and went to the gas station and got some gas so I didn't have to worry about that anymore. I was able to get home and get my car back in and in it's usual spot. I was so happy to get that done!
I will try to drive it again tomorrow in the afternoon to help keep the driveway clear. I thought about going out tonight but it was freezing out there and I knew there would be ice on the roads so I decided to just stay here.
I ordered an additional case for my iPad Mini and it was supposed to be delivered today. It wasn't. It was out for delivery and I kept waiting for it. I finally saw where it couldn't be delivered because there was no access to the house. I think he just posted that and didn't even try. I have my front walk shoveled all the way to the street. Hopefully he'll bring it tomorrow.
So, according to the reports I hear, we got over a foot of snow! I looked out today and the street was cleared off, but there is snow piled up high on both sides from where they scraped it. I went out last night and cleared off my front walk, and today, I went out and cleared off my back steps. I thought I would drive my car down to the end of the driveway and back in to clear path. I got stuck. Lol. I finally got unstuck and got out into the road. I went to turn around and got back in the driveway, but my car got stuck half way up the driveway. LOL Oops! Hopefully I’ll be able to move it tomorrow. My gas light it on, so I didn’t want to keep trying to move iit any more. I am hoping that with the sun today and it’s supposed to get in the 40’s tomorrow, some more snow will melt. I don’t like leaving my car half way down my driveway. Lol
I haven’t done anything today. Well, I did read, but other than that, I haven’t done anything. I don’t know when I’ll be able to get back to walking again. It’s going to take a while for this snow to go away. Right now, it was hard for me to walk out there to get to my car. I even fell down when I was out there. Luckily I fell in the snow, so I didn’t hurt anything. :p
Oh boy is it snowing here. When I went to bed last night, it hadn’t started. I was thinking it wasn’t going to be that big of a deal. I was wrong. LOL! It is crazy out there. Here is a picture I took on my iPad. The camera on it isn’t as good as on my phone, but it’s not too bad. I have pictures on my phone, too, but I’m typing this up on the iPad. Here is a picture of the backyard.
It’s pretty deep out there and it’s still steadily snowing! I am watching it from my bedroom window as I type this. So pretty. I love snow so much. I may go out in the yard later and see how that is. I might not though. It’s so deep, I might get lost. :p
I just finished my second cup of coffee for the day and I’m ready for another. :)
I walked today and it was cool out there. It wasn’t too bad though. I got home from my walk and relaxed a bit. My friend had wanted to go eat yesterday, but I had to wait to sign for my package, so he decided we’d eat today. We went to Roma which is one of our favorite local pizza restaurants. It was delicious as usual. After eating, he dropped me home.
I immediately stated looking for an program to move that one app to my iPad. I still can’t get it to do it. I found some apps that might work, but you have to pay to use that feature, and I’m afraid that I’ll pay and still not be able to do it. There has to be a legit, free way to do it. UGH! I might chat with Apple support tomorrow and see if they might have a suggestion.
Remember the Fossil satchel bag that I got that smelled highly of perfume? Well, it doesn’t now. My friend has an ozone generator and he put it in a room with it for a day and it doesn’t smell like perfume anymore. Yay! I changed to it tonight.
Tomorrow is my last day of walking for a few days. Well, probably. We are supposed to have a big winter storm event here on Sunday. If it snows, I’ll be sitting at my deck with a cup of coffee looking out at the snow. ^_^. I kind of hope it does snow. It will be pretty and it always makes everything smell so much better!
Well, I got in my walk today. It was a bit cooler than yesterday. I wore my warmer hoodie and I needed it! It was mostly overcast with some clear spots in the sky. The sky was so pretty and blue behind those clouds. As of now, they are calling for snow here this weekend. Sunday is supposed to be a snowy day. I don't know if it will, but if it does, I have the treadmill if I want to use it and I have plenty to read. I finished my last book last night and started on the next. After that, I'll go back to the one I was reading before all three of my holds came through. lol
According to the tracking, my iPad is in Roanoke VA. That is usually the last stop before it gets to Danville. It still says it might be Saturday before it gets here, but I'm hoping that will update and it will be here tomorrow. It would be cool to have it to play with this weekend. Especially if we do get the snow.
I can also use the time to get more done on my 2019 bullet journal. I am trying to think of more trackers to add. I have a few listed that I want to add that I haven't yet. I did a 'welcome January' page and it's pretty cute. I drew a snowman and put some 'snowflakes' falling around him with a stamper. It looks pretty neat. Not artistic as most people, but I like it! ^_^
Todau, the sun was out on my walk and it was in the 60's! It was warm enough to walk with short sleeves on. Much nicer than yesterday for sure!
I came home and changed and then went to Family Dollar to get first of the month essentials, I then went to Food Lion and got groceries. I got a lot of goodies, loaded them up, and got back in my car. The car didn't want to start and did the same thing it did that night at Target. The time of the day it was, it was bad for me because my friends were all at work. A nice man pulled in near my car and I asked him if he had jumper cables. He did! He got my car going again. Thank you random stranger!
I got home and put away my groceries. I was in the process of that when my friend texted me and said he was bringing by a couple of hot dogs. I was happy since I wouldn't have to worry about fixing lunch. He brought me two chili hot dogs and a Mountain Dew. Yum! It was nice to sit and eat and just enjoy.
After eating, I paid all my bills and now I'm broke again! I had two extra bills this month. Personal property taxes and the rent on my post office box . Two extra bills did not help! I still need gas in my car and I need to buy postage stamps. I am so behind on pen pal letters and I will be sending out some holiday cards this month. Luckily, I already have two new boxes of those, I only need the stamps!
My iPad was delivered back to the seller today. Hopefully they'll send the replacement out soon. I'm so ready to set it up and use it. I've been looking at things to add to it online and I found an article that might help me get that one last app over to the iPad! Yay! I hope so. That way, all my favorites will be on the iPad. The screen is such a difference with the iPod touch! Lol
I went for my walk today. I checked the weather on my phone and it was supposed to be overcast, but not rain. The app lied! It was drizzly throughout most of my walk. Enough so that I had to use my umbrella almost the entire walk. If that wasn't enough, towards the end of my walk, it started pouring down rain. Boo! I was certainly glad to get home!
I went to the basement to try and get the pilot light lit. Still no luck. The water has gone down a lot more. I was afraid with the burst of rain today that it would be deeper, but it's not. That part was okay. The cold water on my poor feet was not good! I so wanted to soak my troubles away in a hot bath. I'm tempted to rent a damn hotel room just to take a bath! LOL!
I have my bed linen in the dryer and I really need to go get that out because I started another load of clothes. The ones I wore into the basement got wet and dirty so I tossed them in to wash with some other laundry. I can't put it in the dryer until I get the bed linen out. I'll do that after posting this. I hope it's clear or at least dry tomorrow! Today's walk was pretty miserable. I hate having to hold the umbrella. At least it wasn't cold.
I play Pokemon Go every day on my walk and I've been using that new feature that gives you distance even when the app isn't on. It's great for hatching eggs. It also helps on battery as I don't have to keep the app going so much. I got home today and was anxious to check my hatching eggs and realized I didn't have any incubating. D'oh! I fixed that so I should have some tomorrow. Silly me. :p
