Fossil Feed

Tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, we are heading to Myrtle Beach tomorrow! :D  I just finished packing! LOL, I am usually done way before this. I have my things all ready. I only have to put a few things from the kitchen in a bag (coffee, creamer, etc.) I'm ready to leave now! :p  I wrote a bunch today and yesterday and I plan to write some more before putting my laptop in the bag to carry it. I always put my laptop in my suitcase with the electronics, but this laptop is too big so I'm going to use the laptop backpack that I bought at Office Max.  I think I got everything I need for the trip ready to go. I still can't decide on which bag to carry. I want to carry one of my cute little Fossil bags but I want to make sure it's the right size.  I don't like carrying my regular bag with me to the beach.  I usually pick one big enough for my trip journal to fit, but I am thinking if we are going into a restaurant, I can just carry it in with me.  I wouldn't carry it in a store.  The little Fossil bag I got last summer is so cute and I've not been able to use it because it was smaller than I thought it would be. I think I'll probably use that and just carry the trip journal.  Ah, I wish we could go tonight! I'm ready. I wasn't this morning, but nows that everything is packed, It's a go! I will try to post several times a day from the beach as I usually do.  The room we have is a two-room, room.  In other words, there is a bed, desk, dresser, tv, closet, and SINK! in the first part, then a kitchen and bathroom in the middle, and a two-bed bedroom with all the things in the first room (except the sink) and a table and chairs.  I can set my MacBook up at the desk.  I will try to do at least two posts a day and possibly three.  I will be sharing beach pictures and I'll try to take pictures of some other interesting things as I go. I'll also be posted to Insta. :) I have not used any money on my Starbucks card all month and I have several freebies so I'm set on that too.  I just finished the kitchen stuff, I've laid out my clothes, I just need to load this laptop in it's bag and load my friend's car.  No Goontz this trip. I drove him for a bit tonight so he wouldn't feel left out. :p


Friday and thrifting

My friend and I went for our Friday thrift trip today. We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, Mayodan, and Martinsville.  All those places and I didn't get a lot.  At the Salvation Army in Reidsville, I got a flash drive new in the package for $3. I didn't get anything at the Reidsville Goodwill.  We went to Walkertown and I found a Starbucks tumbler that I wanted. Sadly while we were in there their power went out and they would not ring up anyone. They wouldn't even do cash transactions.  It was very annoying.  We waited a bit hoping it would come back up but no.  That was frustrating.

We left there and went to the Mayodan Goodwill. I found two bags with stuff for $2 each. In between the two bags, there were craft supplies, two packages of pencils, a multi-pen, a ruler, and three loose pencils. The funniest thing is, two of the loose pencils are promo items for my bank! I thought that was pretty cool. There were also three brand new (at least I am pretty sure) Sakura gelly roll white pens! Very neat.  We went on from there to Martinsville and I only found one thing there.  I found a DayTimer planner for $1. Not a huge haul, but some good finds. At the Mayodan Goodwill, I found four Fossil bags! I didn't buy any of them. One I already had the exact same back and the other three were nice but they were not bags I would carry myself.  Yes, I could have gotten them to re-sell, but I'm a bit low on funds this month as I just had to pay taxes on my car. Yikes! I took a picture of a cute little tree at the Goodwill in Reidsville:

Sorry, sorry.

I was going to post on Thursday evening but my Bluetooth was acting up.  I finally gave up! Yesterday it was still being wonky. I got it working today, finally.  I was going to post last night but when I looked at the clock, it was three minutes until midnight so I knew I wouldn't have time to post, so I just decided to wait and try again today! So, here we go. Thursday, my friend texted and wanted to go thrifting.  We usually go on Friday after he gets off at noon, but he asked if I wanted to go then.  I figured, why not!  So, we went to Reidsville and ate at Bojangles and then went to the Salvation Army store. I found a Fossil handbag! I actually found two, but I only got one. It's fabric and it's pretty nifty.  Here is the picture of that:

PXL_20210423_035123789

It has a flap pocket on the front and a slide pocket on the back.  I like those to put my phone in. The front pocket is perfect to store my face masks in!   My Sak bag had these features.  I especially like the pocket on the back for my cell phone. I look for that now when I get a 'new' purse.  I'm already using this one.  I thought it was nice for summer. I got a few other little things in the Salvation Army store.  At the Goodwill in Reidsville, I found a Mickey Mouse mug that looks brand new. I can always use another mug and this one is sturdy. I'm not a huge Disney fan, but I do love Mickey! I also found a little radio for $1.00 and a little cactus ring holder.   We went to the Mayodan Goodwill too and I found a HUGE box of Avery address labels.  I got those. There are very few, if any, sheets missing. That will give me labels for a long time!

I also got a little notebook in there.  It was a little graph paper notebook originally from Staples.  Neither my friend nor I got to really look as much as we'd like to as there was some idiot woman with her kids running rampant through the store. They were screaming and slamming things and we were both about to drop kick some brats.  So annoying. I was glad I did find the labels though. I already made a sheet of them and they look great. :) It was a good thrifting trip.

Yesterday, we didn't plan to do anything but he had mentioned a local place after we thrifted but they were closed. He texted me yesterday to see if I wanted to go since we couldn't on Thursday.  I agreed and we did.  That was all I did yesterday. I spent the rest of the day at home relaxing.  Today, I planned to not even leave the house.  Plans changed, though.  I was very low on good stuff to eat! I had a voucher for a free combo meal at McDonald's, so I went to get that. I ate at the park. The park is right across the road from the grocery store, so since I was right there, I decided to go and get that done.  I did!  I now have a lot of goodies in the house to eat so I won't have to worry about running out of anything. So glad to have that done! :p

Goal met, again.

Yes, I just hit 50,000 words for CampNaNo!  Yes, I plan to go on.   I actually wrote like crazy today and got over 4000 words!  I was on a roll.  I wrote earlier today. I wasn't going to leave the house today, so I had plenty of time to write. I could write more, but I'm going to give myself a break until tomorrow.  I didn't do a lot more than writing today.  It's been a slow day. I've been at my desk on the MBP since I ate breakfast.  I need to run out and turn off the water. I turned it on to wash off Goontz yesterday and forgot to turn it off. We are under a freeze warning tonight! I don't want my hose to break.

I took another picture of my 'new' Fossil bag. It's not a great shot, but it's much better than he one I took last night! Here it is:

PXL_20210421_221758410

I have plastic bags in it to give it shape while it's not being used. It's so supple and nice. I'll probably save it for fall/winter time.   I just checked the weather on my MBP and it's currently 48˚!   It is pretty chilly inside, too. I am going to have to put on a sweater or a hoodie in a bit. I already put away my heater for the year and I'm not getting it back out.  I could just be lazy and get on my pajamas and snuggle under the covers in my bed.  That sounds pretty nice, actually! I think I'm going to organize my Starbucks cards and then crash on my bed and relax.  I have the cards that aren't the regular size ones in two disk boxes.   I would like to have them sorted by year like I do the other ones.  Here are the two file boxes and the cards:

PXL_20210421_234616583~2

These work great! The little one is for the smaller ones that are on a single card, the bigger box is for the weird-sized ones. It works out well! They stay organized and dust-free, too! I just finished organizing them. They look better and they are all in order.   

 


Wow!

So, my friend and thrifted today as we usually do on Tuesday. We did it a bit differently though. We ate at a place here for the first time and it was delicious.  I got a Philly steak and cheese and it was delicious!   The only way it could have been better is if it had been bigger.  We went to Martinsville VA first.  I only found one thing at the Goodwill there.  A belt bag with flying / in space tacos! LOL It was too cute not to buy.  We then went to Eden NC to the Goodwill there.  I found a glass turtle candle holder. It's heavy.  I also found an old holiday Starbucks tumbler (back when they still had the short size (8oz) tumblers. My friend got me a Monopoly game in there too. It's Monopoly city which I don't have.  I'm adding it to my Monopoly collection! :)

We left there and went to Reidsville. The Salvation Army store closes at 5 pm, so we missed that today.  We did to the Goodwill and I found another nice Fossil bag.  This is s brown satchel with leather embossed with designs. Very nice. I also found a Starbucks thermos from 2006. I look it up and it was part of a camping/travel set.  The next time I go, I'll look and see if the cups are there. I don't think so, but I'll look.  I have always wanted a Starbucks thermos, so I was glad to find this.  I also got a little metal note holder, a metal sign with the Eiffel tower on it, and Paris. It was originally from Hobby Lobby and was $12 new.  I got it for $1.49. :)  I also got a Hello Kitty game for the DS lite.  I saw it last time and didn't get it, I said if it were there when I went back, I would get it and I did. I haven't played it yet, but I will. It's got Kerroppi in it. YAY!!!!!! :D

OH! I also got a little yellow candle/lantern thingee from World Market. I got a green one in there a few trips back and I was hoping the yellow one just like it was still there. It was and now it's mine.   I was happy to get it and I'll display them together. I came home and got my writing done. I didn't have anything written before I left and I was able to get down 24017 words! Whoo-hoo! Now I just have a few more things to do and I'm going to crash. OH! I did mow some in the backyard when I got home. I forgot all about that.  It was getting really bad in one area, so I got it while I was still dressed from going out. I'm so glad to have that done.

This isn't the best picture ever, but here is the bag. It's so soft and supple and I love it.

Tuesday seems to be a thrift day......

So I was sitting at home on the laptop and my friend texted and asked if we were going to Reidsville today. I said sure if he wanted.  I got dressed and then went over to his house. He pulled up right after I did, so that was great timing.  We got on the road after he went in for a few and went to the Salvation Army store first.  I found a few things in there.  I found a removable purse organizer (can also be used for bullet journal organization), a clear zipper pouch for a binder, a puzzle,  a little Post-it note dispenser, and I think that was it.  My friend found a nice car phone holder and bought it for me.  We left there and went to Pete's to eat.  After Pete's, we went to the Goodwill. Wait, he ran by a music store first, and then we went to Goodwill.  At Goodwill, I found a Fossil bag, It's one of the Key.Per bags.  It still had its key and little 'charm' thingee, too! I also found a little wooden 'basket' with jack o lanterns on both ends, I got a mini lunchbox with snowmen on it, and a nice Kitchen Aid kettle. I've been meaning to buy a kettle and I saw this one and it's in great shape and the inside is very clean.  We left there and went back to Pete's and got ice cream before heading back to Danville.  We went to the two Goodwill stores here.  We went to the regular one and I only found one thing. It was a cute ceramic Jack o lantern.  We went to the other one.  Now, for this store, we went once several years ago and they were rude and really pissed me off and I haven't been back since. I decided to give them one more chance and we went tonight.  Luckily it was different people working and much nicer ones, too!  I got TWO Fossil bags!  I also found a CD, a little package of Jack O lantern bags/envelopes, and a little thing of notes that are shaped like A's, and the little container that holds them has A's on it too.  Very cute  It was a good thrift trip! I wasn't really expecting it. I thought he would want to skip it but he didn't.  I am glad he didn't. Three 'new' Fossil bags! :)  It seems like I am forgetting something but I can't remember what it is! I did write today. I actually got in a little over 2000 words! I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to do CampNaNoWriMo this year and if I do, what I'm going to do for it.  I don't have a lot of time left to figure it out!

I just remembered the other thing I got tonight. The GW I gave another chance to had clothes hangers 10 for $1 so I got one pack. I seem to always be out of hangers! So, that is it, the accounting of my day.  I am home and I'm going to get off this laptop as soon as I post this. I am going to relax a bit before bed and re-read what I wrote today.  I have two packages that I hope are coming tomorrow. One package has two DS games that I found on eBay and the other package is a set of styluses for it. The first order never came and the seller refunded me so I ordered another set on Amazon.  I know Ill get those!  The next thing I want to get for it is a replacement bottom screen and then a clear case for the outside but those can both wait.


Fossil journal?

So I was looking up something on Facebook and this Fossil notebook came up.  I watched it but I was outbid which made me decide to look up Fossil notebooks.  Boy was I surprised! I didn't know it was a thing. The one I missed out on was a simple spiral-bound notebook, nothing I couldn't live without.  I found one that is a leather cover with a pen holder and pockets and a notebook.  I bought it and it came today! I also ordered a two-pack of Bic four-color pens.  These are exactly like the four-color pens from years ago (they do still make them) but these have nice pastel colors!  Aqua, Lime, Violet, and Pink!  Very nice.  I took a picture of the new notebook with the pack of pens and then a picture inside with the pen test sheet I did.  The cover of the inside notebook was plain with a little Fossil page inside. I made a color copy of that page and glued it to the plain front of the notebook and then decorated it with washi. I really like the way it turned out.   Look at this:

PXL_20210313_220037099.MP~2
PXL_20210313_220037099.MP~2

Of course, the colors are not exact.  The first picture I took in natural light at my desk, the second later tonight after dark.  I love it.  I can refill the little cover with notebooks in the future.  it's very cute and I love that it has a pen holder. (It is absolutely big enough for the Bic multi-pen, too!" It's a weird size, but I found a notebook that I have that will fit it.  I am going to cut out a piece of paper the size of the notebook so when I'm out and I see a notebook I think will fit I can check and make sure.  That is what I did when getting notebooks for my A5 TN!  I am so glad I found it.  It has a bit of pen marking on the front as you can see in the first picture. I'm hoping to get that off, but it not, it's not too bad. It might wear off with time.  The seller did mention it in the listing, so I knew about it.  This guy is going to have a nice home now. ^_^


Thrifting again....

So soon? Yes! I wasn't expecting it, but my friend wanted to thrift today, so we did.  We ate Biscuitville food before leaving for Reidsville. We went to the Salvation Army store and I found a Fossil bag, a Lily Bloom bag, four Coca-Cola magnets, and a little Lisa Frank stationery thingee. We went on to the Goodwill and I found a fitted sheet for my bed. (I like to buy older sheets because they are soft. They don't make them like this anymore!) I also got a little box that has a bacon imprint all over it and it came with free bacon stickers! lol, I also found a DS game for 99¢ It is called Purrpals and you raise a kitty.  I thought it would be cute and it was cheap, so I got it. It had the original case and booklet too!

We went to the Goodwill in Mayodan but neither of us found anything. Well, I found a few things but I didn't buy anything.  We then went to the one in Walkertown.  I found a pair of spandex capris for walking and a little petite Rolodex.  I looked and I can get refills for it! I was thinking it would make a great penpal database.  The cards can be pulled out and moved around.  It's small so it doesn't take up a lot of space, either. I like it!

After that, we headed back to Reidsville, and on the way, we found a diner called Parker's Home Cookin' restaurant.  We decided to stop and give them a try. I'm glad we did. It was delicious!  He got spaghetti and I got fried chicken.  Everything was delicious!  This will definitely be a place to go back to.  It's in Stokesdale, NC.  When we got back to Reidsville, we were going to Pete's to get ice cream, but they were extremely busy, so we went to Mayberry to get ice cream.  We did that and headed home.  I'm extremely tired and I just want to go to bed!  I wrote a little over 1400 words tonight, so I have my writing done.  I like my two purses.  The Lily Bloom is a backpack purse and the Fossil is a small hobo (at least I think that is what this style is) It's black with silver grommets on it and it has grey stitching, it's pretty cute.  It was a pretty decent thrifting trip.  We didn't make it to Eden or Martinsville, but that is okay. There is always another time.  


Thrifting!

So, I went thrifting yesterday with my friend.  We did our usual circuit. Reidsville, Eden, and Martinsville.  I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I got a few fun things.  I found three different jack o' lanterns, (one was a stack and it was still in the box!), I got a cute Hallmark branded snowman dish, a snowman soap, he was so strange looking I felt sorry for him and felt he needed a home. I got a coupon organizer pouch thing, a pouch with a galaxy print (an Ipsy pouch), a cupcake mug, a wireless keyboard, etc.  I found a vintage puzzle still in the box sealed!  I also got this little snowman thing.  It's a snowman that sits in a glass and it's supposed to have a floating thing that you float on top after filling it with water and a layer of oil and light a wick. The floaty thing and the winks are missing, but the snowman in the glass is cute and it came in its original box from 1979. Nifty!  I think that is everything except a little organizer box for Zip disks. Now that is a blast from the past!  It was new with the plastic still on it. I didn't need it, but I got it anyway.  I feel like I'm forgetting something.

When I got home, I checked online to see if I could get some blue lights somewhere while they are having after the holiday sales.  Target was out as I had already seen.  I checked Lowes and they had some and they were half price!  They weren't available to pick up in-store, but they were available for shipping.  I went ahead and got six strands.  I'll have an extra just in case.  Also, these are a different brand than the ones I always get at Target.  I hope they last longer, but we'll see!

As of now, I've done all my regular Sunday things.  The only thing left is to put the bed linen back on the bed.  I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things that they were out of when I went last week.  I also needed a few other things. I got the other things, but they were still out of the two things I needed. D'oh!  That is so weird.  They are either not getting stock because of Covid, or the stockers just aren't filling the shelves.  Hopefully I'll get the things I need soon.

For now, I am going to put the linens back on the bed and then write. I wrote a good bit two days ago. I didn't write last night and I am really wanting to get some writing done tonight.  Bed linen and then writing!  One more thing.  I took a picture of my 'new' Fossil bag in my car the other day.  It's so pretty in natural light.  My Fossil bag sitting in my Goontz. :p

PXL_20210101_175103770.MP


Whee!

So, my friend texted today and asked if I wanted to go eat. I said YES of course! :p. I didn't know where we were going, but I didn't care.  So, he comes over and we head out to Reidsville.  We were going to eat at Carmella's but they were closed.  So, we went to the Salvation Army store and and then to Pete's Burgers and More to eat. Yum!  At the SA store I found a Sak bag and a Fossil purse.  Then, after eating, we went to the Goodwill and I found it... the holy grail... a beautiful, handbag.  A Fossil satchel bag in a BLUE.  My favorite brand purse and my favorite color.  Do you know how fast I snatched that up?  I was going, Oh my God, Oh my God! All throughout the store. LOL!  It's lovely!  Look at it:

PXL_20201227_005537608.NIGHT

Of course this picture doesn't do it justice but it was dark when we got home, it was dark when I bought it, too! lol. I am in love with this bag. It's so pretty. I have been looking at satchel bags for a while now.  This one is perfect. It's in excellent shape. There are a few wear marks on the corners, but nothing overly noticeable. I am going to be moving my things into this bag tonight.  I looked it up and found a picture of one brand new. They retailed for ..... $218.00!!!!!  I paid $5.  I'm a happy camper!  I got a cute Reese's mug in there and a jack o lantern and a little wristlet that is Karma brand.  It's cute and I've never seen this brand before.  I found one like it for $30 on eBay.  I love finds like these.  I am so in love with this Fossil bag.  It's so soft and supple and it's so pretty.  It was a great find. OH! I also found a cute sweater but it's in the wash.  A good haul from an unexpected trip to thrift!


Let's go back in time!

I remembered today that I said weeks ago that I would share a picture of the Fossil bag I bought on impulse.  I got it and I never did a post and shared it. It's smaller than the striped bag but I was able to get all my stuff in it without much trouble.  The only difference is that there is no pocket on the back. I always put my phone in the back pocket on any purse I carry.  It keeps it separate and keeps it safer from scratches.  This little bag doesn't have one, but it fits IN the purse.  I keep my TN in a cloth bag inside my purse, so I am able to put the screen next to it to keep it safe. It all works out well.  Here is the bag.  I love the print.  It's so cute and fun!

IMG_20200827_145137~2

I wish it were a bit bigger, but I like it anyway.  I saw that fabric on a much bigger Fossil bag and though it was really cute.  I ran across this one and it was just too cute.  Sadly, it was listed as being a larger size.  The listing said it was 10' across and it's about 8'  :p


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


Missed posts...

Yes, I know I didn't post yesterday. I planned to, but I did so much yesterday, it was hard to keep up! :P

I washed my bed linen, I fixed my bed (it fell again), I washed a TON of dishes, I washed my hair, I took out the trash, I carried branches to the street, and I put away the laundry I washed yesterday.  Phew. I'm tired just telling you about it. I also fixed my box fan.  It stopped working Saturday night and I was scared it was dead for good. It's really old. It's a metal box fan with controls.  They don't make them like this anymore!  

I took the back off yesterday and used a hand held vacuum to clean out the build up of dust and dirt from over the years.  I cleaned everything I could reach and then put it back together. It worked!  I was very happy that it works.  I love that thing!

Today, it rained and it actually cooled down a bit outside.  That was a nice change.  It cooled down so much that when I ran out in the car this evening, I didn't even have to turn the air on!  That was nice. IT won't last long, but I'll take it while I can get it.

I recently bought a very cute Fossil bag on eBay and it came today. It's a bit smaller than I was thinking it would be, but it fits everything just fine, so that is okay. It's also crossbody and I love those.  Here it is:

20200803_212451

It's very cute. It has a lot of pockets.  There are two on the outside under the front flap, three inside the bag itself, a pocket on the back (that fits my phone perfectly), and a zipper pocket on the flap. (Easy access to my lip balm!) Of course, as usual, the picture does not do it justice.  

 


FAIL!!!!!!!!!

So, my friend got off work early today. He hadn't heard back from the dealer but decided to go anyway. We drive all the way up there and the lot is EMPTY.  The dealer is gone.  No cars, just an empty lot.  WTF?  So we call the number and it's out of service. D'oh!  There is a lot next door, so we go and look at their cars.  The guy comes out and my friend tells him that we had been looking for the lot next door and the guy says they moved.

He gives us the new address and we head there.  Nope, that isn't the place. We go back and they say that it was the correct address but the car we were looking for was not there and we still don't think that was the correct place.  He said they moved and re-branded.  I think he was full of it! We did get to visit a few Goodwill stores, so the trip wasn't totally wasted.

I found a Fossil bag and a cool Gumby mug in the Goodwill store in Roanoke.  All in all it was a frustrating day.  We drove all that way for nothing.  Oh well, the search continues.  I didn't sleep well at all last night. It was extremely late / early morning when I finally got to sleep and I woke up before my alarm at 10:30, so I'm super tired.  I hope to sleep well tonight.
