Late start, but wow! :P

I didn't get to sit down and write for NaNo until just a while ago.  I hadn't planned to start so late today.  Why so late?  Well, let's see.  I walked as I always do.  I stopped by one place to see about after Halloween candy. :p . I got four bags of Halloween candy for 50% off. WHOO! lol . I got two bags of individual Reese's. YUM I also got two bags of this 'nut lovers' collection.  It has Mr. Goodbar, Hershey with Almond, Take 5, Paydays, and Reeses.  I was so happy to find this collection.  I usually don't find a collection of stuff that I like everything in the bag.  This is one where I like them all.I have a lot of goodies to snack on during NaNo. Yay!  It's funny that I got so many Reese's my main character, Sophie, LOVES peanut butter cups.  :P

So, I got my candy.  They also had some fuzzy 'at home' socks at the register for $1 a pair. I adore fuzzy socks, so I got three pair. lol . I came and had to sample my candy. :p . My friend texted and said he was coming straight from work and we'd go eat.  He said we'd eat quickly. I thought, great.  That way I can get home and write.  Well, we ate and it wasn't as quick as he said. lol He also had to pick up a few things at the dollar store.  He got me some chips and vitamins though.  Then, he got himself a milkshake.  When we does, he usually asks if I want a Frappe.  I did! :P . I rode with him to the grocery store.  He ran in for a couple of things and then ran him by his mom's.  He was in there a lot longer than he planned, so I didn't get some until much later than I had planned.  Oh well, I sat changed into comfy clothes and sat down.  I wrote 1942 words so that is just fine!  I don't think I'm going to add anymore tonight.  I need to pack up and put away my Halloween decorations and that is going to take a while..  lol . I have sooo many!

So, NaNo is off to a great start, I have snacks and I actually got a good start.  When I got home from my walk today, I finished re-reading the send half of book two.  I was ready to go when I sat down.  Now, I'm going to get my Halloween decorations put away.  Well, the ones that I don't keep up year round!  I also need to do my French, and then I'm going to fix dinner and read.  I started another true crime book last night.  This one is about Marie Hilley.  I've seen her story on Unsolved Mysteries and some of the true crime shows.  I'm looking forward to reading the book. She was a piece of work!

I used Scrivener for day one and I love it!  Bean is a great program, and I am grateful to have had it these last two years, but I know I'm going to enjoy Scrivener a lot!


Rain, yeah.... boy...

It was overcast when I went for my walk today.  It wasn't raining though.  That certainly changed! LOL I was on my way back and I noticed it was starting to sprinkle a little.  I got my umbrella out.  It started raining a little so I used the umbrella.  Good thing I did!  It started to POUR rain and it was the kind that isn't coming straight down.  My butt and back were soaked through quickly.  My shoes, socks, and feet were soaked.  My shoes are still wet!  It stopped raining as hard, but it kept raining until I got home.  After I was in and dried off and changed, it stopped raining. ~_~;  I needed to dry my clothes, but I just tossed them in the washer with some other things that needed washing and did that instead.  It was not fun walking like that.  It rained so hard and so quick that there were a lot of puddles.  I kept stepping in them by accident.  Believe me, I was glad to get home!

I laid down on the bed to relax a bit after I got home.  My friend texted and said to not eat.  That means we would go out.  We went to another of our favorite local restaurants.  It  was so delicious.  I got a bacon burger and it was the best burger I've had in a long time.  He needed to run a few errands, so I rode with. He got me a Frappe at McD's while we were out.  I had my Kindle with me, so when we were stopped at the places he needed to go, I read on my current read.  It's book four in the series I'm reading.  It's pretty good so far.  I'll read more later.  

Right now, I'm feeling sort of bleh.  My friend got onion rings with his dinner and let me have some.  I love onion rings, but onions don't like me. LOL . My mom was the same way.  She loved onions but they didn't like her back.  The crazy thing is, I only had a tiny bit of onion.  I usually just peel the breading off and eat that so it isn't so bad.  It was so good though! :( Oh well, I knew what would happen and did it anyway! lol

 

 


Afternoon post!

Sorry about no early morning post . I actually slept until my Fitbit alarm went off at 10:30.  That was nice for a change.  I did wake up a few times, but I didn't get up except to go to the bathroom.  I went for one last walk today.  I went to 17 and waked to the Dollar Tree.  I got some things there and headed back here.  I stopped at McDonald's and got myself a Frappe.  It was quite tasty!  Now, I'm back in the room and I'm cooling off before we go out.  We are going out in a while to go to the one Goodwill we haven't gone to, and a pawn shop he wants to go to.  I'm also hoping we can get to a Tuesday Morning.  I didn't get to look as long as I would have liked when we went the other night.

I want to go to Broadway at the Beach to see the Kwik-e Mart that they just opened recently.  Not sure if we will make it on this trip or not.  I just want to try to get in as much as possible since this is our last full day here!  I'm going to go out on the balcony and look at the ocean for awhile.  Hopefully pokey will get ready to go!


Too hot to live! ahhhhhhh

Yeah, it was another scorcher today. lol I almost talked myself out of walking but I got my booty up and went for my walk!  It was hard, but I did it.  My friend texted me this afternoon after I'd eaten lunch to ask if I wanted a "frappie". lol . I said, yes., so I rode with him to get himself a shake from Cookout and then to McDonald's to get a frappe for me.  It was delicious.  I had thought about going to Starbucks since it was happy hour, but I changed my mind when he offered to et me the frappe.  The whole 'frappie' thing is a joke we have.  

Once, my other friend, her son, and I went to McDonald's to get fries and a frappe.  The cashier asked if we wanted a Frappe.  My friend said, "NO I want a frappie and ..." Her son and I cracked up and have teased her about it since.  I told my friend that carried me today.  He said he was going to forget one day and order a frappie instead of a frappe. lol

 


Makeup post?

Well, I certainly do have to make up for last night's post.  I had sat down at the computer to post to Typepad.  I had a call from a friend that had an emergency and needed me to go with them.  After they picked me up, the emergency was over and they wanted to go get themselves some food.  The emergency was that my friend had been in a separate vehicle from her mom in Greensboro, NC and some how got back to Danville without her!  As soon as we headed out to look for her mother, she passed us! LOL!  We went and picked her up and I rode with them to get them some food.  They got me a frappe at McDonald's.  Yum.

So, I was out and couldn't get home in time to post about my day yesterday, so I did the quick post from my phone and posted the cute picture of Goldie and I from Animal Crossing Pocket Camp! ^_^  I had two walks yesterday.  The second one was a rainy one.  The first was sunny and hot!  My friend wanted to walk on the trail in Martinsville, so we went and did that.  It started raining as soon as we got out of the car!  We walked anyway. 

I am probably not going to get in two walks today.  I got in my regular one and I came home and did my workouts.  I also mowed the front yard. As of now, I'm in my room sitting with the air conditioning on and the fan! LOL!  It was in the nineties out there today and it felt like it, too!  I just want to sit in the cool air and enjoy the rest of my day.   


Puppy Breath!!!!!

My friend recently got a puppy.  I hadn't seen it until today.  I was coming back from my walk and I saw her in the yard. I thought she was walking Cocoa the mini wiener dog that I love so much, but it was the puppy.  Since I haven't met him yet, I had to go see.  He has puppy breath and he is adorable!  He is a Boxer pup and so cute.  He whined when I left. Awww! I told her I was going to steal him. lol

I drove down to the post office this evening after going to McDonald's.  I had an alert on my phone that through the McDonald's app, you could get any medium McCafe beverage for FREE with a $1 order!  I decided to treat myself to a fry. :P  I used mobile payment for the first time there. It was pretty cool.  I ordered and paid.  I typed which 'bay' I was in and they brought my order out to me.  Pretty neat.

Since I was out, I went to the post office.  I had seven letters. YIKES!  I already have four to write and I have exactly 8 stamps.  HELP!!!!! lol  I am going to write the four I already have tonight or tomorrow and then I'll get to the others.  I hope to get some stamps asap!

I am STILL waiting on my payment to clear at Fingerhut so they will ship my Fitbit.  I'm getting so impatient.  I wish I had the money to order one from Fitbit themselves. I would probably already have it. I hate waiting.  I swear I've had other things clear the bank that have come out after that transaction.  So annoying!  If I had anything to sell, I would certainly do it.  I thought at one time of opening an Etsy shop, but I need a sewing machine if I want to do anything with fabric.  I can do repairs on my stuff, but to create something, I'd want a sewing machine!

I wish I still had some stuff to sell on Ebay.  Any extra money would help me a lot.  I shouldn't have gotten anything today from McDonald's, but the free coffee was too tempting! :p  I have money on my Starbucks card, so I'm covered there.  I hope to get over there soon.  I haven't had any since the beach trip.  I am hoping they have cascara syrup.  I want a cascara latte!

I got in a good walk today and then came home and did my workouts. I'm glad it was arm day, because my poor butt is still sore from yesterday's butt workouts. lol  OUCH!  I finished the book I was reading last night and started on a book about Ted Bundy. I've read many books about him, but not this one.  It's good so far.  

OH! I forgot to mention.  Sometime ago, I found a cute double pencil / pen case on Amazon that I loved.  It was an Adventure Time pen case with Finn and Jake on it.  I loved it but it was over twenty dollars and that didn't include shipping!  I recently found it on ebay by accident and I ordered it. I came today and it's so cute!  Here is a couple of pictures:

What a day.

I did my workouts and posted yesterday's on Instagram. lol I realized my mistake and then posted the correct day's workouts. :P I went to the park to hit a few Pokestops.  I was on a streak and today was day seven.  I like do to the Pokestop streaks as I get special stuff on day 7.  Not to mention all the extra goodies you get when you hit a pokestop on day seven!

It looked like it was going to storm. I was going to stay at the park, but it began to thunder so I went home.  It never did storm.  I sat on the porch to enjoy the storm that never happened!  It did rain a little bit though.  I was hoping to sit out and enjoy the storm.  Oh well! I swear that the grass GREW during the rain. I'll have to mow it soon.  It's rained so much lately, it's hard to get a time where it's dry enough to mow!

When I headed to the park today, I went to McDonald's and got myself a Frappe.  They have the small size McCafe items for $2.  I treated myself.  I enjoyed it in the park while play9ing Pokemon Go. I carried my camera and took some pictures of the park and the squirrels.
