Thursday thoughts

Hoo boy, this puzzle was crazy hard.  The colors are so similar and it's so muted, it was something else finishing it.  I did finish it though and it's very pretty.  I will do the last of the 500 pieces ones tomorrow. It's got a lot of bright colors in it so it should be a lot easier.  I'm going to miss the nice think pieces of these puzzles, though!

Last night I was looking for something and I came across a puzzle in a box.  I have no idea when or where I bought this puzzle.  The box is open so I must have worked it before.  It's Encore brand and it's pretty.  I hope it's all there!  I'll probably do that after I do this next one.  I really have no idea where it came from. It's so weird!  Oh well, I'll enjoy working it anyway!

My friend wanted to eat, so we went to a local place we like.  It's a walk up and order and then wait in your car until your number is called.  You then go back up and pick up the food. It's delicious food and we love it.  We did that instead of bothering with going in anywhere.  Afterward, he went to get himself a shake and then asked if I'd like a Frappe from McD's.  I did, and we went, but the machine was down. ~_~;  He offered to run me to Starbucks, but I didn't want to make him do all that, so I just came home.

I was working on the puzzle before he picked me up and I finished it after I got home. It took longer than I had planned, too! LOL!

My package finally arrived!

I was a bit wary about it.  I figured something else would happen.  I was sitting at my desk with the window open(blinds not the window) while doing my writing for NaNo today.  I saw the mail person drive up the street and stop across from me and deliver their mail.  She then went on up the street.  She pulled down the street and pulled up in front of my house.  I went to look and sure enough, I got my package. She laid it at the edge of the porch in full site of anyone going by. ~_~; I'm glad I was here to get it.  I don't understand why anyone would do that.  At least come up on the porch.  I have places where you can hide a package.  I guess I should be happy to get it!  It was a 'TN starter kit" . I needed a new plastic zipper pocket for my new TN because the pocket I had was broken.  The zipper part didn't stay closed anymore.  I looked for one on Amazon and found this one in a set.  It was the clear zipper pocket, a nice kraft pocket, a pen loop, two extra connector bands, and a nice binder clip.  It's a nice set and it was a good deal.  It was only a few dollars more than the clear pocket by itself.  I can use the kraft pocket too and already have! It's in my TN.  Very nice deal.  

I got my writing done this afternoon and it was pretty good.  I am now a bit over 13,000 words.  Last night, I treated myself to my pizza!  It wasn't the one I usually get, but it was pretty good.  I looked for deals and saw that Dominos had a large pizza for $7.99.  I ordered that and went and picked it up.  I really shouldn't have as I'm so low on funds, but it's been a tradition and I didn't want to stop!  I have three slices left for tonight.  It was really thin.  It wasn't as good as the ones I usually get, but it was tasty, so that is okay.

Today, my friend texted me and said we'd go eat.  I said, whoo hoo! lol. He came and picked me up and I had no idea where we were going. I just knew it would be hilarious if we went and got pizza.  We didn't.  We went to Ham's.  I haven't been in a long time, so that was nice.  The only bad thing is they don't have my favorite sandwich anymore! BOOOO!  They had this sandwich called the "Big Island chicken sandwich."  It was delicious.  They don't have it on the menu anymore.  PHOOEY!  I got a bacon cheeseburger in its place.  It was a good burger, but I really wanted the other sandwich.  Oh well!

After that, he had a few errands to run so I rode with him.  He stopped and got himself a milkshake and then carried me to McDonald's and bought me a frappe.  Yum!  He offered to take me to Starbucks, but I didn't want to get out and go in.  It was raining and messy.  Plus, I'm sure they were busy as all the holiday stuff hit today and they had that promo for a free cup with purchase.  Last year they sold out very quickly and it turned into a big mess. I didn't even try last year, so I didn't bother this year either!
