Munzee Feed

Day one complete!

I actually got a great start to this year's NaNoWriMo.  I have 2230 words!  It was easy to get back into the story and the characters.  I thought it would be harder since I've been working on my other story, but I jumped right in.  I am going to write some on the other story tonight, too. I have been busy today.  I went to Starbucks in the early afternoon and then came back here and wrote.  I put away the laundry I washed yesterday and washed my bed linen. It's in the dryer now.  I washed my hair and I'm currently posting this while sitting under the hair bonnet dryer.  I washed dishes, too.  I am extremely tired today.  My sleep last night was horrendous.  I woke up around 7 and had so much pain I couldn't go right back to sleep. I got up for a little bit and walked around and came back to bed and laid down.  I was finally able to get back to sleep, but I kept waking up.  It was not the best night.  

My day would have been great after getting Starbucks, but they gave me the wrong thing! :( I was so disappointed.  They were extremely busy so I didn't want to have to go in or go back through the line so I just came home with it.  They never and I mean, never get my order wrong. This was just not the day for that!  I am still doing daily Zeeops via Munzee and I was able to take care of today's mission while I was in line at Starbucks! lol My mission was to get 200 points by deploying or captured Munzees.  I have a virtual at Starbucks and I magnetized it for an hour.  It will bring Munzzess to the Munzee you magnetize and you can capture them.  They will be random ones so I can capture my own Munzee because it's not 'mine' for the times the random ones come.  It lasts for an hour or until three Munzzees are captured.  I was able to do that while in line. That was easy peasy and I'm glad because after getting the wrong drink, I was just ready to be home!

I am going to sit here until my hair is dry and then I'll worry about what I'm going to fix for dinner.  I'm very hungry, but I don't have anything I want.  I might break down and make a hash brown casserole, but I'm a bit reluctant since I JUST washed dishes! 


Munzee and stuff....

Sorry about last night.  It was late and I was feeling pretty cruddy so I didn't post. I even went to bed a bit early, too!  Today, I had to run to my friend's house to pick up a package he had arriving today.  I did that and while I was out, I did my daily Zeeops mission for Munzee.  I went to the parking lot of the 'new' YMCA and captured a Munzee.  I took a few pictures while there, too:

The YMCA is right by the Riverwalk trail! I have walked past it many times, but I've never driven into their parking lot. It's a nice area.  I had to take a few pictures while I was there! My friend came to pick up his package and told me he had to drive to Greensboro to pick up an item there. I tagged along for the ride.  That was fun and now I'm back home relaxing a bit before bedtime.  I wrote very little today, but I wrote quite a bit yesterday so it all evens out. Besides, this isn't my NaNo work, it's just a story I'm working on. :)


Munzee in the park in the fall

I went out today to find a Munzee in Ballou park that I somehow missed all this time!  I found it and while I was there, I took a picture of these two cute little trees in their autumn glory. (click on them to see them full size)

I thought they were just so cute.  I was able to finish up this weekly mission of the Zeeops and found out that there is yet another week! Hopefully I can complete that too.  It's fun and I'm getting more points and badges and things in Munzee.  Lots of fun for me and it was a perfect day for it. Sunny and just plain nice out there.


And so it goes...

I am suffering from cool notebook syndrome.  My little Moleskine Cahiers are so nice I don't know how to go about using them! LOL! I have this issue with a lot of my notebooks.  I really want to make my TN a TN for learning French.  I just have to decide how to go about it.  I was thinking of one notebook for notes while taking lessons.  (Words I have trouble with, things I didn't understand, etc.) and the other two for certain things.  I just haven't decided on those things yet!  I DID put an address label in one of the cahiers.  Progress, I guess? 

In other news, I have been writing on my fic every day.  I figure it's good practice for NaNo.  I do need to do some more prep for NaNo but not too much.  I have the idea of the book in my head.  I just need to decide on what the main thing will be.  If my male skater is hurt, I have to research that.  If I do the stalking story, that will be easy peasy.  I read and watch enough true crime to have that one in the bag. LOL!  I will probably do the stalking and the injury in another book.  Who knows with me?

I have been playing Munzee every day for the past couple of weeks.  They have a Zeeops event going on and I've been able to do everything so far.  Tomorrow is the last day of this week's tasks.  I hope I'm able to do it and get the bonus. If you complete every day you get an extra perk at the end.  It's been fun and I've had a lot of fun deploying Munzees.  


Sunday

I got so much done today.  I washed a load of laundry yesterday and I put it away today.  I washed my bed linen and my hair.  I also washed a week's worth of dishes.  I swear I'm going to keep them washed as I go and it never happens. D'oh!  I've been playing special Zeeops in Munzee so I ran out today to do the daily 'mission'.  It's fun and I earn things to make playing more fun.  

Today, yes on Sunday, I got a package in the mail. It was a package from Amazon.  I decided that I wanted Moleskine cahiers in my new TN instead of the Moleskines volants.  The cahiers are pale yellow and so pretty.  I also printed some things to put in the 'dashboard' I made.  I'll take pictures in good lighting tomorrow.  I think it looks so pretty!


Well then

Guess what I forgot all about today? Yup, to take pictures of my new TN stuff.  Oops.  I needed to go to Walgreens for something and found some Halloween goodies.  Look at these guys.  So cute.  The Reese's was a nice treat.

I love that mug! It was the last one they had.  They were buy one get one 50% off.  I saw the cute 'potion' bottle and got it since it would be half off.  I love adding things to my ever growing Halloween collection.

I was messing around at home later on my phone and was looking in the Munzee app. There was a little thing in there to earn points for the mobile store so I did that, then I saw I could get more points for deploying or capturing a Munzee.  I haven't played in a while, so I went out and deployed three physical ones at Dan Daniel's park.  There is a little area at DD that I didn't even know existed!  That was cool.  I took a few sky pictures and a picture of a cute little tree.

I enjoyed my quick trip there and hope to go back and explore soon.  I didn't know that part was even there!  It was good to get out and Munzee again.  Maybe I can go out tomorrow and carry my TNs and Munzee, explore and take pictures of my TNs.  We'll see. I don't feel great at the moment, but I'm hoping to sleep off anything that I may have.  


Saturday afternoon post

I got in a nice walk today.  I went down Ocean Boulevard to the little 'park' that is right next to the Ocean Park hotel.  I deployed a couple of Munzees there.  I also walked down the little ramp and took a few beach pictures from beach level.  I'll share those and later there is a pic of a little pond? That I have taken a picture of before but always on the other side.  This time I happened to go down the other street and took a picture.  I went to two stores.  Whales (a beachwear store) and Sugar Life.  I got a shirt, a decal and a mask at Whales.  I got a shirt and some bulk candy at Sugar Life.  That was fun.  I didn't make it up to I Love Sugar this trip so I got some bulk at Sugar Life.  The shirt is cute! It wanted the same shirt in white, but the material was really thin and my bra would show. AH! lol

I walked back to Ocean Boulevard and walked back to the hotel.  I got to meet and pet and cute Pitbull on my way back.  Such a cutie!  I deployed a munzee and Sugar Life too, I forgot about that.  Here are the pictures.

Welcome September!

It's the first day of September and it's starting off okay. It was cooler today so that was nice.  I had to run out and pick up a package for a friend and I needed to pick up my prescription.  I did that and then I headed to Starbucks!  I got myself a nice latte and then went and captured two Munzees and deployed one.  I headed back in after that.  My friend came after work to pick up his package and brought some KFC to share. Yum!  I even got to keep the leftovers. Score! :p

I took a picture of my delicious latte on my dash with Starbucks as the background.  Enjoy!

It was tasty if a bit too sweet. (My fault entirely!) I wish they'd bring back the Maple pecan latte! I want one!  


Oops I did it again!

Well, I DID plan to post last night.  I just ran out of time. Why?  Well, my crazy bed did it's thing again and the boxspring fell through the frame.  I pulled the bed out, took everything out from under it, cleaned all around it, and then got down to business.  I tightened everything and anything I could to make sure it didn't do it again. I hope I was successful this time, but I hope that every time!  Hopefully, if I didn't get it perfect, it will last a while.

After I got it back together, I put the clean linens back on.  By that point, I was sore, injured, and dripping sweat.  I had to cool off before I died.  It took a while, but I finally got cooled down and was able to relax for a bit.  It was midnight before I finished getting everything back together so it was too late to post to my blog. I figured I would just wait until today.  

I ran out for a quick errand earlier today before the rain came.  I took a picture of my little TN in the car.  It's a better representation of the actual color.  It's so pretty.  I want another one just like it! LOL. Here it is resting on my steering wheel:

It's so pretty! I'm thinking of using it not only for Munzee but for journaling on the go.  I have the Munzee notebook in there and I had another notebook in there.  I can use it for journaling or notes.  I also stuck a little stack of Post-it notes in for quick notes.  It's so nifty.  I could also but the insert to make it into a wallet if I wanted. 

I took a picture of a couple of my latest Jack o' lantern finds at Goodwill.  I mentioned each of these as I got them, but I don't think I ever showed a picture of them.  Here they are together.  Such cuties!

I love jack o' lanterns, but I particularly love ceramic ones.  They are fun to display with or without a tealight in them.  I might take pictures of my entire collection at one point and share them.  I will be decorating for Halloween very, very soon. I have boxes and boxes and boxes of Halloween stuff and the majority of it is .... yes, jack o' lanterns!
