Sunday yet again.

My walk today was quite interesting.  Why? It was crazy windy out there.  It was cooler too, so that made it worse.  I was very glad to get home and out of that wind!  I did stop while on my walk at CVS.  I needed stamps, and I knew I could get a book of them there.  I got those and four boxes of clearance mini candy canes.  I love peppermint!  

I didn't go out again after I came home as the temperature was supposed to drop and the wind was still pretty bad.  It's supposed to get down in the teens tonight.  Yikes!  I hope it's warmer than that tomorrow when I walk! lol . 

My friend didn't get over here this weekend at all, so I still don't have hot water.  I had soooo many dishes to wash and I was trying to wait for the hot water.  I don't feel they get as clean in cold water.  I finally gave in and washed them today.  I couldn't wait any longer to wash them.  I was almost out of plates and I was totally out of forks. lol . I also washed my bed linen.  I just need to put that back on the bed and I'll be done for the day. 

I am trying to find an Apple pencil (1st generation) online for a low price, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen!  Apple has refurbished ones for $85.  I can't afford that either.  Maybe one day I can get one for less than $40 but I'm not holding my breath. lol . I would like one to use with my iPad mini.  

 


Stylus fail! :(

My stylus came today and when I opened it, I was in love.  It's pretty, it's easy to hold and it's got the perfect weight.  The problem? It scratched my iPad screen!!!!!!!!  My screen was pristine and now it has a scratch.  I'm so disappointed!  They need to make the stylus tip better.  I have already repackaged it and dropped it off at a UPS drop box!  I guess I'll have to make do with a regular old stylus.  The tip on those is so big.  Oh well!  I'd rather have that than have a scratched up screen!

I got in my walk today and I was happy to have done that! My friend is supposed to come tomorrow and work in the basement again.  This time I get to walk. lol I'll just leave the basement open for him.  I don't think he'll really need me to help at first anyway, so it will work out well.  I hope he gets it fixed!

Update on the purse situation.  It arrived at the address that the seller had on file at ebay today and it said it had to be forwarded!!!!! UGH She must have moved and not updated her address at ebay.  I'm getting more and more upset with her as we go.  She still hasn't bothered to message me once!  I don't understand how she has so much good feedback.

 


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!

 


Water, water, but not hot! :p

I still don't have any hot water. My friend came today and didn't have his boats again so he didn't get to try to fix my water heater.  Phooey!  He did bring a pizza from one of our favorite local places to split, so it wasn't a wasted visit. :P . He is planning on coming back tomorrow and working on it. Hopefully he can get it fixed.  I would really like to have hot water again!

I had planned to go to Starbucks tonight with my letters and work on them, but with him coming, I postponed it to tomorrow.  Well, if he is coming tomorrow, I can't go then either.  Oh well! I'll just run over there tomorrow night, grab a drink, and bring it back here to write letters. I need to buy stamps again as I have more letters to write than I have stamps.

I bought a really cool app for my iPad Mini that I am playing with.  It is best used with a stylus.  I wanted an Apple pencil, but I don't have $100!  The newer version is even more and it's not compatible with my iPad.  I looked at alternatives and found one that looks similar that has good reviews on Amazon.  It is supposed to be here on Friday.  I'm hoping I like it.  I will do a post on the app in a few days.  It's GoodNotes if you are wondering. I've already put some templates in it.  Dotted paper, a journal that I found for free, and more.  So far I'm loving the app.  I have old styluses that have the big tip, but I wanted a smaller tipped one.  The pencil type are more like the styluses from the old days.  If you ever had a Palm Pilot, you know what I'm talking about. I loved those things!  I wanted the narrow tip. I may do some digital bullet journaling in the future. I will never give up paper permanently, but it will be fun to experiment!
