Fossil Feed

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!

 


GRRRRRRRRRR

I got a package today.  It was supposedly my Fossil purse I ordered on ebay.  Well, it was a Fossil purse all right.  It wasn't the purse I ordered.  Not even close. I'm am not very happy with this situation and as soon as I saw it, I contacted ebay.  The purse I ordered was 'new' and this one is definitely not.  The one I ordered is cream colored, this is brown.  They don't even look alike.  I'm so pissed.  UGH.  Now I have to wait for ebay to contact the seller, see if I hear from them, and then get ebay to settle is if they don't.  I'm so pissed.  So, so, so pissed.  GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR


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.  

 


Hello

It wasn't sunny today, but it was warm.  It was around 60! It was pretty nice for walking.  I got in my walk and I was able to stop by the dollar store and get a few things I needed.  I also found a great smelling candle for .30!  It was in the holiday markdown stuff.  I wonder if they have any more. It smells so good. It's called Frosted Fir and smells like a fresh tree. 

I needed some tape, and I was hoping there would be some in the holiday markdown section, but no go. I got some in the regular section though, so that was okay.  I also got a package of copy paper as I was completely out.  Some of the pen pal letters I wrote last week were on green paper because I was out of my regular white sheets.

I didn't do much when I got home. I washed my hair and my bed linen. I've had a really bad headache, so doing other things was not an option.  I mainly just sat around. I played some Bingo on my iPad and watched The Simpsons on FXNow.  I love watching the episodes, but the commercials are driving me nuts.  They are mainly the same ones over and over and they are annoying as hell!  I just mute them when they come on!

Tomorrow, I should be receiving a pen loop for my Leuchtturm bullet journal and a new set of washi. It's from my favorite brand/company of washi. Molshine.  I love their washi.  This set is 10 rolls, I think.  It's so pretty from the pictures. The thing about their washi, is it's always better looking in person than in pictures. I love their washi!  I'll post pictures tomorrow.  

Oh! I also found another Fossil purse on ebay. ^^;;;;; I saw it, watched it, and then bought it all within five minutes. lol . I hope I love it in person as much as I did on the site.  That hasn't shipped yet, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.


Thrift shopping again!

I found some good things today.  I got a box of assorted envelopes for a dollar.  I needed some envelopes for pen pal letters and now I have a lot.  These are mainly big ones too.  I love them.  At another thrift store, I found a practically brand new pair of Saucony shoes.  They fit and are comfy.  My regular pair I walk in has worn out.  

At another thrift store, I found another Fossil purse!  This one is black corduroy and it's cute!  I like it.  I always look at the purses in thrift stores and this one caught my eye.  I turned it over and saw the Fossil patch on it.  It was as good as mine! :p . I also found one of those purse organizer thingees.  Here is the purse front and back:

I love finding Fossil purses at Goodwill! This is the same Goodwill that I found that black leather Fossil purse some time back. ^_^ . The purse organizer thingee is like this:

The only difference is the one I found is dark blue.  It's pretty cool and it was still in the original plastic.


Goodies!

Here are my goodies:

Spirograph, journal, stationery:

The old light thingee.  It's just like the new one except the new one is black.

My purse.  That is showing the inside of the front flap and the front of the bag itself.

The two Starbucks tumblers.  I almost didn't even look in this section. Yay!

Friday Fun

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!


Meh

I walked today and it wasn't too bad.  It was warm, but it's no where near as bad as it was a few weeks ago.  I wish it would cool down a little more.  I came home and did some of my other stuff.  I also noticed it was getitng overcast.  It drizzled a bit.  I hope it doesn't rain a lot.  We certainly don't need anymore rain here!  Some people are still without power and there are still trees and lines down.  There was a mud slide the other day and it took out power to a bunch of people again.  I think they got that fixed.

I went down in my basement after my walk to see if I could get my water heater lit.  Nope.  The part that I would need to light is still under water!  I took a ruler down there and measured the step to see how deep it was the other day when I was down there.  12 inches!  Good grief!  It's still about 8 inches of water down there so I'll have to wait a few more days and try again.  I hate not having hot water.

Remember the Fossil satchel bag I got that I wanted to start carrying this fall?  Well, it stinks.  I mean reeks of perfume and I can't stand it. I don't like a lot of heavy scent.  I wrapped it in newspaper, stuffed it with newspaper and closed it up in a some plastic bags for over a week.  I took it out the other day and it still reeks.  It's bad.  I've been looking up ways to take the smell out. One solution was to put it in a closed container with dry coffee grounds.  That sounds like a good idea.  Especially if it smells like coffee. LOL . I just want it to smell like leather!  I'm going to find a sealable plastic bin big enough for it and put it in there with some coffee grounds and hope for the best.  I really want to carry this handbag, but at the moment, it's not a possibility!


More purse pics....

I was able to get out and take some pictures of my purse today.  Here are a couple: 20180804_154904
20180804_154904

It also has a clip on strap so it can be carried cross body.  It's so pretty.  I still can't seem to get a picture of the true color of it. lol . To me it's a deep rose color.  

It was sunny today as you can see in these pictures. I was able to walk without worrying about rain.  That was nice, but at the same time, it was really hot.  I came home and cooled off before doing my workouts.  I had to run out for a couple of errands and then came home and I've been here since.  I meant to go to the post office while I was out, but I never made it.  I am planning on writing letters tomorrow.  I might run those and drop them off tomorrow evening and pick up any new ones.  I think I have two or three waiting for me.

 

 


Full Friday...

The street was wet when I got up today and it had rained, but it wasn't raining at the time I usually go for my walk, so I decided to go.  I made it without getting wet.  It did rain for a few minutes but it wasn't hard and it wasn't very long.  I only had to use my umbrella about 3 minutes.  I got home and cooled off.  I then went to the grocery store to get my monthly groceries.  It got really overcast while I was in there and I was just hoping I could get home and get my groceries in before it rained again.  I made it!  I got all my things and put away.  I rested for a bit and then my friend picked me up.  We went to South Boston to the Goodwill and to Dini's Brother's pizza.  I tried their philly cheesesteak.  It was pretty good, but their pizza is better!

At Goodwill, I got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for $2!  I also got a Under Armour fitness backpack.  I use a fitness backpack every time I walk and they wear out eventually.  This looked brand new so I got it to have on hand when mine dies.  My current one is Everlast and I got it at Kmart.  We don't have a Kmart anymore. :(

I also got a binder, a coffee mug, and a cute stencil set.  It's a 'kiddie' type, but there are some good stencils in the set that I can use in my bujo!  I love stencils.  After we got back to the city and he dropped me off, I went to get gas for my car and get a few things I needed.  My first of the month necessities.  The Family Dollar I went in had these big jar candles that were $5.  The eucalyptus mint one smells JUST LIKE the $20 ones that Bath and Body Works used to sell! I had to buy one.  I'm burning it now and it smells amazing!

One last thing to add about the day.  I didn't mention this earlier, but I won another Fossil purse on ebay last week.  I got it today.  It's gorgeous!  It's one I saw in 2011 in a Fossil catalog.  It's a satchel bag and it's coral  and it's gorgeous.  The picture does not do it justice!

The second one is closest to the actual color.  If it is sunny tomorrow, I'll take some pictures outside.
