Impromtu Thrift!

Yeah, there were absolutely no plans to thrift today.  My friend has been saying he'd put new tires on Goontz since we've driven it so much and it was needed new tires when he got it.  He took it today and got tires.  He then wanted me to drive it to see how it felt with the new tires.  That was nice.  I switched spots with him and we went by Wendy's for me to grab a bite to eat as it was past my lunchtime.  After that, we went to Cookout so he could get a shake.  He mentioned drying on the highway and said something about Eden, NC.  I said, how about Martinsville instead.  That is what we did.  We went to the Goodwill in Martinsville and the one in Bassett (just up the road about 10 minutes).  At the first GW, I found some Avery address labels new in the package, three packs of business card binder pages, (I use these for my Starbucks cards), a purple binder with some divider inserts already in there, a cute little canvas bag, and a plastic kitchen spoon!  That was a nice little haul.  We went to the Bassett one and I found a pair of Dr. Martens in my size that looked almost brand new.  They were $40 and I didn't have that much, so my friend got them and I'm going to pay him back $10 a month for the next four months. Cool!  They are pretty cool, they are a bit shiny and look either purple or burgundy.  Just depends on the lighting.  They are very cool and I've never had a pair of Docs.  Here they are:


Cool, yes? My size, in great condition for a good price, and they are comfy!  I was very pleased to get them.  The only other thing I found in there was a puzzle.  I got it for .69¢. I really need to start working on puzzles again!  While we were out, we went by the car wash and washed Goontz.  Later, we took it by another car wash and I vacuumed it well.  My Goontz has new tires, is clean inside and out and I'm pleased! ^_^

Here is the cute little bag. It has blueberries on it! It has a tag that says, "Stonewall Kitchen" in it.  I just thought it adorable and had to have it. It rang up a whole .99¢!


Impromptu thrift trips are fun!  In other news, my set of Styluses that I ordered from Amazon came today.  I also received my order from eBay of two DS games. One is Scribblenauts and one is an Adventure Time game! YAY! The AT game is, "Hey Ice King! Why Did You Steal Our Garbage??!" :p

Hello again!

Sorry about not posting for the last two days.  On Wednesday, I walked, but I got blisters.  This was unusual.  I was not happy about that.  That evening, I fully intended to post to my blog and I got to doing other things I forgot.  I did a puzzle that day and wanted to share it.  I'll share it today.

First though, let's talk about yesterday.  I didn't walk.  I woke up feeling pretty bleah and out of sorts.  I decided I'd walk later in the day.  I took a nap, and relaxed.  I didn't feel like doing much.  My friend texted me and asked if I wanted to try one of the restaurants here in town we've wanted to try but have't yet.  I said, yes!  It's a local Italian restaurant. It was delicious.  I got Fettuccini Alfredo. OMG it was so good.  They serve it with a bread roll and Foccia bread.   Yummy!  I enjoyed it a lot.  Definitely a place to go back to!

When we got back to my house, my friend put some stuff in my car to see if it would help it run a little better. We drove around a bit to see if it helped.  It didn't. lol Oh well! After he left, I got in my mail and saw that I had a sample of dog treats.  I got them to give to my friend's dog.  I went up to their house and treats were passed out all around. lol . I stayed awhile and then headed home.  I didn't start my next puzzle because it was late.  I decided to wait until today.  I worked the whole thing. lol  Here is the one from two days ago and today's:


These were both from the box of 6.  The first was 300 pieces and the second was 500.  I'll probably do the last puzzle in the box tomorrow (or at least start it).  I also decided to put some of my Adventure Time stickers to good use.  I put them on the MacBook Pro.  I laid them out and figured out the design before sticking them on.  I wanted to put on Marcy and PB too, but I didn't have room.  I like the way the ones I put on look.  Here is that:


LSP, Peppermint Butler, Finn & Jake, BMO, Gunter, and Ice King. ^_^  I love it!  Also, as an added bonus, you can see my bujo in this picture. :p Oh! I walked today and everything was okay with my poor feet. :p


I love my Adventure Time episode tracker! I used some of my Adventure Time stickers. Here is the finished product: 


The Adventure Time logo at the bottom isn't a sticker. It came off some packaging and I just made a color copy. I love my spread. I am going to alternate the blue and yellow pens to mark episodes as I watch them. It's going to be fun! 

My walk was really hot today, but I got it in. Gladly, today is the last day of the festival! I probably won't be able to walk through the park tomorrow, but I should be able to by Wednesday at the latest. When I got home, cooled off, and relaxed, I worked on my puzzle. I finished it! 



Adventure Time!

So, I have been wanting to do an episode tracker in my bujo for some time.  I thought I'd do it for Adventure Time!  I printed out a list of all the episodes so I can do a layout in my bujo.  I want to put all the episode names, but that might take up too much room. I haven't decided exactly how I plan to do it.  We'll see!

As for walking, I did just that today.  It was very hot as I expected and it was not easy to convince myself to go, but I did it!  The park wasn't too bad when I went by.  I had to go around people a few times, but it was only on the way down.  On the way back, I avoided it completely. Instead of walking the sidewalk in front of the shopping center, I cut through the sidewalk IN the shopping center.  I didn't have to walk around anyone that way.

I came home and it took a while to cool down.  I was hot, I was sweaty, and most of my clothes were wet from that. Eww!  I finally cooled off, changed and started on my next puzzle.  I got a good portion of it done too.  I decided to stop and go mow.  I got the back park done that I didn't do last time.  I'll have to do the front tomorrow or Monday and again next Sunday before we leave for the beach.  That way, it will be done the day before we leave and hopefully it won't get too bad between then and when we get back that Sunday.

Here is the puzzle so far.  I might do a few more pieces before bed, but I might not.  I was up too late again last night and I'm certainly feeling it today!



Monday Madness :p

Not really, though!  I got up and got in my walk at the regular time.  It was cool, but it was sunny so that was nice.  I got in my walk and came home and relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.  I got those done and did my French lesson and then relaxed a bit before washing a ton of dishes.  I fixed lunch and then went to my room for a bit.  I noticed my friend pulling into my driveway.  I didn't know he was coming.  I went to see what was up.  He needed to put brake pads on his car and wanted to do it in my driveway.  My driveway is a lot bigger than his.  He did those and it took a lot longer than he planned.  I went out to help with the last bit.  After he left, I fixed some dinner and now I'm just relaxing watching some episodes of the Flintstones.  

I ordered a bag on Amazon and it came today.  It's supposed to be a small messenger bag, but I'm going to use it as a purse.  It's army green colored and canvas.  It has a lot of pockets.  I love having everything organized.  It's pretty cool.  It has pockets in front, a pocket in back, a pocket inside the bag, and  two pockets on each side of the bag.  I like it a lot.  Here are some pictures:

 I love all the pockets!  The pictures are of the front, the front flap pulled up, the inside of the big section, and the back.  The back even has a zip pocket!  It's so cute!  I added my Jake the Dog rubber keychain on the main zipper and a little dangle one with starfish on it from the beach.  That little dangle keychain usually gets moved from purse to purse. ^_^

Is it time for bed yet?

I got in a good walk today.  Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy!  I didn't think it would rain, but it did.  It wasn't too bad though.  I only had to use my umbrella for a portion of my walk.  I stopped by the post office, but I didn't have any letters.  I got home and did my workouts, ate lunch, and then ran an errand.  I finally got the clothes I washed yesterday dried!  I forgot about them last night just as I thought I would.  It wouldn't have taken so long to dry them, but I forgot I had several large towels in there.  Oops!

I got them dried and put away this afternoon.  I had planned to stay in after that, but I had to carry something to my friend's house.  I meant to drop it off and come back home. That didn't happen.  I ended up coming home and taking a bath and washing my hair.  I then realized that there was a new episode of Adventure Time!!!!!! I watched that and went, OMG WTF BBQ!!!! lol  Seriously.  The show is getting more though provoking every episode.  Kid's show my ass!


So, I thought I was going to get two walks in today.  I didn't!  I did get a lot accomplished though!  I got in my first walk and it was good, but it was rather hot out there.  I didn't have any mail today either. :(  I mailed all the letters I wrote last night though!

I got home and did my workouts.  I ate lunch after that.  I texted my friend to see if he wanted to walk.  He though so but he had a few things to do first.  He'd let me know.  I waited and waited and waited.  Finally, I asked him if I should just mow my lawn and forget our walk. lol  He said he was done with what he was doing but if I wanted to mow, to go ahead.  I told him that I didn't want to mow at all! I wanted to walk.  We ended up not walking.  He said we'd only have a short time to walk in.  PHOOEY!

I went and mowed my front lawn.  Afterwards, I carried a lot of tree limbs to the street.  I wanted to get the lawn mowed out there before putting the limbs on the street.  I got all that done and then I was roasting!  I am now sitting in my room with the air conditioner on AND the fan! :p  I hope to not have to do anything else until bedtime!  I do need to fix dinner, but that can be as easy as a sandwich or a frozen dinner.  I'll decide what I want.

ALSO!  Today is a new episode of Adventure Time! :)  I'm looking forward to it.  From the description of it, it sounds great.  I'm hoping that Glob/Gob/Grod/Grob are still out there and "Normal man" and Finn and Jake can stay him (them). :)

Layout change, yes?

Yes.  I decided to make a layout change today.  I think it looks pretty nice.  I'm always wanting to change everything.  I hope to keep this one for a bit.  I like the colorful macaroons.  I wish I could just customize it a bit more.

I had two letters in my mailbox today!  One was from a regular pal, and one was from one that I mailed a letter to last month hoping to be pals.  She wrote back and does want to be pals! Yay!  She is from Spain and her handwriting is so pretty.  I feel bad about how bad my handwriting is.  I'll just have to decorate her envelopes to make up for it! :)  It was cool to have mail today.  I will probably sit down and write letters either tonight or tomorrow.

When I go to Starbucks to write my letters, I've been using an old messenger bag.  I have wanted to get a new messenger bag for ages, so I started looking for one.  I figured it would be my go to bag.  It's also to be my 'pen pal' bag.  I found one in military green on Amazon that I loved.  I almost bought it in Khaki, but I love that military green  color so much, I couldn't resist.  I also ordered three patches while ordering it.  I am going to have a cool bag with iron on patches.  

I got the idea of patches from my membership at the Letter Writer's Alliance. (LWA)  In the membership kit, they send a cute little patch with LWA on it.  I thought it would be cool to put it on a bag.  Then, after finding the perfect bag, I ordered a few more patches.  From Amazon, I ordered a Zombie response team patch, a Starbucks patch, and a patch of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time! :)  I also ordered a larger LWA patch from LWA.  I can't wait to get my bag and patches and plan how I'm going to place them.

I have an old Air Force jacket of my Uncle's that my aunt gave me several years ago.  She was just going to toss it! NO!  I said, I would love to have it.  I may take some of the patches off of it and add it to the bag.  I think that would be cool and it would be a nice tribute to my uncle.  He passed in 2003, two years after his sister, my mother, died.  

I have been thinking if I had anymore patches.  I realized I had one of an Afro Ken.  Afro Ken is a character by San-X out of Japan.  I have several stuffed Afro Kens and a mug with them on it too.  The patch is small, but it's cute so it's going on the bag too.  Now I just need something Blogilates!  I have a cloth 'tag / patch' in my jacket I ordered.  I make carefully take it out of my jacket and add it to the bag.

Yes, I will take lots of pictures of the bag when I get it and when I put all the goodies on it.  I can't wait.  It's pretty big, so it will hold all my pen pal stuff for taking with me.  Also, it will make a great travel bag/overnight bag/goodie bag.  


I finally got to the mall to get my hair cut.  A friend of mine and I went to eat lunch and then her hubby dropped us at the mall.  I got my hair cut and then we went to Hot Topic and Spencer's.  I found a really cool Jake the dog mug in Spencer's.  It was 25% off so I bought it.  It's adorable.  Want to see?  Here you go:




Isn't he cute?  I love Jake.  I couldn't resist. Or course he is too cute to use for drinking.  I'll probably just display him. PS Yes, I walked and did my workouts. :)

Adventure Time!

Yes, I dearly love Adventure Time.  It's such a fun show. It has been on hiatus since the Season 6 close.  There haven't even been any re-runs of any shows as they usually do.  Normally, this wouldn't be too bad, because I have a ton of favorite episodes on my DVR.  The bad thing is, my DVR died last month and I had to get a new one.  Thus, no saved episodes.  

I see where it is finally coming back in November.  There is also going to be a mini-series on Marceline.  I am looking forward to both.  I just wish they could play some old episodes so I could get some back on my DVR.  Since the sixth season ended in June, they have played a total of TWO episodes.  Those were in early September.  Nothing since then. I really want to see how the new season starts, but I also want to see some of the old ones.  

Some of my favorite episodes were on my DVR.  These include: Joshua and Margaret, The Creeps, Party Animal, Food Chain, A Glitch is a Glitch, Card Wars, Gotcha!, and several others I can't think of at the moment. Come on Cartoon Network!  Get with the program!!!!!!

Adventure Time!

So, I thought I'd share some of my Adventure Time collection.  If you look at these pictures, you will be sure to notice who my favorite character is. :) This is most of the collection

Jake Laplander hat


There you go! I have Adventure Time themed personalized tags on my car, a vinyl Finn decal on there and a vinyl Finn and Jake decal on my Macbook.  Oh, I also have a mini LSP hanging from my rearview mirror.  I have some AT books and the Finn PJs that a friend got in. So, did you figure out my favorite character?  ^_~


I got in my walk today and then came home and did all my workouts.  I also did the 24th day of the #goodvibeschallenge that Cassey from @Blogilates has going on.  I had to plank with a friend.  Since I'm alone at the moment and I live alone, I had to improvise.  I took the picture myself with my Macbook in photo booth.  I have a stuffed Jake the dog that I used as my friend.  I thought that would be pretty cool.  I'll have to post a picture of my ever growing Adventure Time collection soon.  That Jake is one of four! Here is the collage I made for Insta. 


Not the best quality, but it usually isn't when you have to take the pictures yourself. :P
