Tuesday Afternoon post

I went for a short walk out to Hwy 17.  It's overcast and it was drizzling just a bit on me. Not enough to have to use my umbrella, but enough where I decided not to stay out too long.  I went to two beachwear stores, Eagles and Beach Life.  I picked up a pair of marked down flip flops at Eagles.  The floor of the room isn't carpet, so it's pretty dirty and my feet are getting dirty.  I can't abide dirty feet!  I saw these flip flops and they were actually cute, so I got them to wear in the room.  I didn't buy anything at Beach Life.  I browsed for a while and then I walked to the McDonald's.  They are not letting you eat in yet, but they are letting you come in and get your food. I got a fry and Coke and went out front.  They have outside tables.  Luckilly for me, they have a couple of them under an over hang so I could eat without getting wet.  A Sparrow came and landed on the table in front of me and I gave him a fry.  I wish I could have gotten a picture.  He was there until a truck pulled up that was waiting on an order and they had pooches.  One of the dogs barked and scared my little friend away. Boo!

I am now back at the room sitting on the balcony.  It's nice and cool out here with the ocean breeze.  I was a bit overheated when I got back here but I'm feeling nice and cool now.  I will probably sit out here a while.  I hope my friend wants to go out and eat soon.  A single order of fries isn't going to last me long at all! lol. I took a few pictures while out.  I'll share some!

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!

Power outage in the city!

This afternoon, my lights blinked.  They didn't do it again and I thought nothing of it.  My friend that lives nearby texted me that his power was out.  Someone hit a pole and knocked it down and knocked out power for parts of the city. Luckily my power never went out.  I planned to go to the grocery store.  I heard that the power was out up to the place where it is.  I wasn't sure if they had power or not.  I drove down there and was getting disappointed.  The lights were all out all along the way and I noticed that the Subway and McDonald's just before you get to the shopping center were dark.  I drove on and saw that Food Lion was open!  It was so weird.  Part of the shopping center had power, and the other part did not!  I was able to go and get my groceries.  I was glad to get that done.  I now have plenty of goodies in the house.  Luckily they weren't too busy either.  They were when I got there, but by the time I got through and went to the checkout, it had cleared out a lot.

I came home and put away all the groceries. I spent way more than I meant to.  Oops! Oh well, I'll have plenty to eat for a while.  I went ahead and paid all my bills.  I also went ahead and ordered the stylus I've been wanting.  I hope I love it.  I do love the color. I got the light blue!  I have been researching these styluses and everything I see for them, the one I'm getting on Amazon is a good price.  I just hope I love it!


Ouch ouch ouch

My poor head is killing me at the moment.  I have the headache from hell.  I didn't sleep well last night and then woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston today and go to a pawn shop, a Goodwill, and to eat.  He asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go.  He would buy lunch and get me some things at the thrift store.  I went.  I usually find a lot of things at that particular Goodwill, but I only found a little bag with various office supplies and a pair of black flats.  I have been needing a pair of nice black flats. These look pretty much brand new, too.  They are comfy and I like them a lot. 

We ate at Dini's brothers. It's a pizza / sub place in SoBo.  We split a pizza and it was good.  When we got back to Danville, we went to the Goodwill here.  I found more goodies.  A journal, a digital camera kit, a Spirograph with all the pieces but one, some cute stationery, and two Starbucks tumblers!! They are from 2007 and they are both grande size.  The lid on one of them wasn't the right lid, but the other one's lid fit on both, and I wouldn't be using both at the same time anyway!  I couldn't pass them up for .99 each!

Oh, I also got a caramel macchiato at the McDonald's as we were leaving SoBo.  It was pretty tasty, too! I was hoping to spot some extra cases for my iPad Mini at the thrift stores. I have seen them before.  I like having a variety of cases. lol 

My Fossil canvas purse came today and it's so cute.  I'll have to do another post after this and do a picture post of some of today's goodies. I would do it with this post, but I'm sitting under the hair bonnet hair dryer so it's not possible at the moment. I took several pictures of the Starbucks tumblers, but I haven't taken one of the purse yet.  It's khaki colored canvas and it has a cute yellow floral interior.  It's a small bag, but it holds everything I need.  The front zipper pocket can be used as a wallet if you want.  I like it.  I'll post my haul in a bit after my hair is dry.  The heat from the dryer is very soothing to my painful head!

Another thing I needed came in today's mail.  My closet light went out recently.  To turn it on and off, you pull a string from the light bulb adapter thingee.  My adapter thingee quit working so I ordered one from Amazon. It's nice to have light in my closet again. I had tried one of those tap lights, but it wasn't nearly enough light.  I am glad to have this fixed again.

Now, I just need to finish drying my hair and I'll post some of my goodies. :)


Lame Library?!

Please tell me why I can get ebooks and audiobooks online through my local library, but I can't renew my library card online.  What is this, 1995?!  LOL . I had to go down to the library today to renew my card.  It took all of 2 minutes. Why they can't do it online is beyond me.  Oh well!  It actually expired recently and I went to put a book on hold on Overdrive and it said the card was expired and I'd have to go to the library.  I didn't want to have to go all the way down there, so I asked online if it could be done online.  Sadly, no!  The lady from the library told me that she would extend my card until November 1 so i could use it and it would give me time to come in.  I was glad to get that done.  It used to be you had to renew it every year.  Now it's two years, so I won't have to worry about this until 2020!

While I was downtown, I went by the post office.  Good thing I did.  My box was stuffed!  I had eight pen pal letters! Yikes! LOL!  I thought I had about four, I was not expecting eight.  I also had an ad or two.  I got all that and then swung by McDonald's.  I had a game piece for a free snack sized McFlurry.  Yummy!  I got that and came home.

I walked today and afterwards, I ran to get my car inspected.  I, for some reason, thought my inspection was in February.  That was my old car from eight years ago! LOL!  I looked in my journal at the beginning of February this year and didn't see anything about inspection.  I got out last's years journal and there is was, in October. Oops! LOL!  The place I usually go only does cash for inspections. No checks/credit.  I went to another place I've been before and asked if he had time to do one and if they took credit cards.  He said yes to both so I was able to get it done.  I felt bad going at the end of the month.  I am not one to wait until the last minute!  I was so glad to get that done and not have to worry about it.  One less worry on me is a good thing!


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

 


No, I didn't forget...

I've just been gone most of the day!  I went on my walk earlier and then came home and did my workouts and French.  I had lunch and then a friend picked me up and I rode with her to Burke's Outlet.  We left there and went through the drive thru at Starbucks. ^_^  I finally used my free drink. :p

After we left Starbucks, we rode around a bit and then went to her house.  We picked up her son and rode around in his car for a while and then went back to see what her  mom wanted for dinner.  I rode with them to pick up their dinner.  Bentto for one and pizza for the other two.  They dropped me home and I sat down to read some of my zombie fiction I wrote for Nano.  I was doing that when my other friend texted and asked if I had eaten.  I hadn't so we went to Eden to go to the Circle drive-in.  They were closed for the week!  We went to another drive up place called Dick's that has the same kind of food.  We ate there and then headed back to Danville.  He wanted a shake so I rode with him through the drive thru at Cookout.  He was taking me to McDonald's for a frappe, but the machine was down for cleaning. NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!  I really wanted something cold and delicious.  Oh well!

I came in my house and did my squats. I couldn't walk in a straight line after that. lol I then got my Macbook out and sat don to post.  I am going to read more of my zombie fiction.  I have an idea for book three for Novembers NANOWRIMO and I just might do it! I had thought I would be done with the series, but I have a good idea of something totally new to add so I will be writing notes and preparing for that.  

Now, I'm going to relax a bit.  I have a headache and my stomach doesn't feel too great. It's like I have a low grade migraine. Phooey on that!


Thursday post of doom....

Okay, so I am feeling just bleah and I don't really want to post, but I am going to.  I got up today and I felt like hell. I didn't sleep well and I surely didn't feel like walking.  I went anyway.  It did rain for a short while but it didn't last long and after that, I didn't have to use the umbrella at all.  I got home and decided to skip my workouts.  Then, I got up and did those too!  I put a load of clothes in to wash and my friend texted me that we'd go eat.  I didn't know where, but I am usually up for food!

We went to South Boston, Virginia.  It's about 25 miles or so away.  Maybe more, I'm not sure.  We ate a local pizza place. It was great!  The pizza was delicious.  The crust, the pepperoni, the cheese, yum.  Everything was delicious.  The only thing I'd change about the place is they serve pepsi products.  I prefer Coke when I have a soda.

We left there and went to the Goodwill.  Sadly, it was almost closing time, so we were only in there a few minutes.  We didn't want to hold them up.  After that, we stopped at a McDonald's.  He got some ice cream and I got a caramel macchiato. :P  I ordered and he paid for a small.  I didn't realize until we were down the road a bit that they gave me a medium!  

I came back here and watched an episode of Cold Case Files and read the new Stephen King short story that he has for free on his website: Stephen King .com

It was good as most of his works are.  Now, I'm waiting on a load of clothes in the dryer and I'm going back to the true crime book I started last night. It's really good so far!

 

 


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.
