There's a Hurricane a Comin'

In the words of Sophia Petrillo, there is indeed "A hurricane a comin'".  It's headed for the east coast.  Myrtle Beach, which I just left on Sunday has already 'shut down' so to speak.  A lot of things are closed.  The Gay Dolphin closed at 1:30 today and plans to be closed until after the storm.  They dismantled the Sky Wheel.  I saw some pictures of the Boardwalk area that a local MB photographer posted and it is utterly deserted.  Places that are always open are boarded up.  It's sad.  I hope everything down there comes through safely.  It was SO weird seeing those places that usually have a ton of people around being totally deserted.

The hurricane is also supposed to affect my area even though I'm way inland.  The city is already preparing and sending out alerts ahead of time.  I have some bread and stuff to make sandwiches in case we lose power.  I also went tonight to the dollar store and got some snacks to have on hand. I got an extra package of tea lights, some batteries, and some ibuprofen.  I just needed that on general principles, not because of the hurricane! I finished my last bottle at the beach.

I plan to walk as long as I can.  If we get the heavy rains and winds later this week, I will not be walking.  It will be dangerous out there.  If we still have power, I can always use the treadmill.  I also have some bottled water and other things if I need them.  The stores here are crazy.  I am glad I got my stuff yesterday because they said today was worse.  I was lucky to get two cases of water yesterday.  From what I've heard, it's sold out all over the city.  I always buy bottled water.  I almost didn't get any because the shelf was empty yesterday.  Luckily, they had a pallet of it that they were putting out and I got two cases.  I could have gotten more, but two will get me through the hurricane time and I can get more later when there are more supplies.

I walked today and it was pretty toasty!  I was hoping it would be cooler, but no.  I was glad to get back to it.  I didn't do my workouts, though. ^^;  I'll get back to that soon, too.   A friend came by to do some patching work on my roof.  My roof leaks a lot when it rains and with all the rain we are expected to get, it might get crazy in my house!  Hopefully what he did will help.  I have containers ready just in case.

I would like to go to the grocery store and get some bananas and some almond butter, but I am scared of how crazy it will be in there.  I should have gotten the almond butter when i was in there yesterday, but I didn't.  I will look and see how crazy it is when I walk tomorrow.  If it doesn't look too bad, I'll try to slip in and get those two things.  If not, I do have a lot of other things I can fix.  

Those snacks that I bought today are in a container and they are tempting, but they are going to stay in that container until this weekend.  I got some good stuff, too.  Nabs, cookies, candy, etc.  Yum!


Bullet Journal goodies!

So, while I was at the beach, I ordered a couple of things from Amazon to arrive today.  That way I would have something to look forward to when I came back.  What did I get?  Well, I got a new Leuchtturm1917 for my 2019 bullet journal.  It's Ice blue and gorgeous!  I also bought a cool pack of brush pens that included their own case!  Look at my goodies:

The last picture is of the new Leuchtturm and the current one. Look at how fat my current one is! LOL!  I can't wait to set up the new one for 2019!  It's going to be pretty cool.  In other cool news, I went to a really neat place at Myrtle Beach....

This was seriously cool!  I have to share the top of my receipt with you.  Yes, I bought stuff. LOL Two Homer pins, a Maggie pin, a Lisa pin, and a Marge pin.  Also a Homer keychain.  I didn't see a Bart pin with the others.  Here is the top of my receipt!

I didn't walk or do my workouts today. I took a day off to recover from the beach trip. I did mow and do my shopping.  I also went to Starbucks because I was one trip away from a star dash.  I made it! That gave me enough stars for another free drink.  I now have three on my card. LOL!  I also checked the Starbucks at Target while out and was glad I did.  They had some summer die cut gift cards that I didn't have. YAY!


Home again, dammit

Yes, I'm home. We got in around 5pm. I have been washing clothes and putting things away. I have everything done except for putting away my clean clothes in the dryer and putting my bed linen in the dryer. I have put away all the goodies I bought and worked on some journal stuff. I got some journal inserts in Tuesday Morning.  I also got a small 365 planner and a Memory Planner.  I found some inserts for it at the second Tuesday Morning we went to.  I found some inserts that with some extra hold punches fit in a empty ring planner I have. I love all my goodies.  I'll do a post tomorrow with pictures of some of the stuff I got on the trip and some more trip pictures.  I will share a few I took this morning.  I haven't eaten since we stopped at McDonald's for breakfast this morning, so I'm a bit hungry!  I am not sure what I want to fix, though.

Evening post!

Well, I spent quite a lot of time on the balcony this afternoon.  It was lovely out there but hot.  My friend couldn't get motivated to go out, so I decided to walk again.  Ouch!  I stopped by the grocery store and got my friend something he needed.  After that, I headed right back since it was a cold item.  I got here and I was so tired.  I'm sitting on the bed with the laptop and resting.  

I think we may go out later for a late night run to Cookout but who knows.  I'm going to sit here and relax for a while.  I still need to take a short beach walk. :)


Afternoon post

Whoo whee.  I'm a tired pup! I walked quite aways own 17.  I went to a bunch of stores and spent way more money than I should have.  I got some popcorn balls, a Dew, and a pen at Dollar General.  They get the popcorn balls at Halloween and Christmas and they are good!  I always get some.  I stopped at several beachwear stores.  I got two shirts at Bargain beachwear. My favorite beachwear store at the beach.  I got a cute MB shirt with a whale on it and a Pokemon Go shirt that has the three teams on it for $3!  I saw it in June and meant to buy it then, but I didn't.  I was surprised it was still there!

I also got another hoodie. :P . The Eagles I went in had some cute workout capris and I got a pair of those.  While I was browsing around the store, I saw that the hoodies were 16.99!!!  I have a yellow one, two blue, and two grey ones.  This one is pink!  It is cute and I couldn't resist for the price.  It's good quality because it's the same brand as my other ones.  

I also bought a cute mug in another store.  It's green and says cappuccino on it.  It's really cute but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking I won't be able to use it for coffee, it's too small. lol . I might use it as a pen cup!  I took some random pictures while out.  Here are a few:

Evening post!

So, I spent some balcony time this afternoon after getting back to the room.  My friend and I went out after that.  We went to North Myrtle Beach.  I wanted to go to Tuesday Morning and I got to go!  I got a planner and some inserts from a different kind of planner.  I also got some washi. :p We went to the Goodwill while we were up there.  I usually find stuff I want at that one, but this time I didn't. Oh well.  

We went to Sonic for dinner and it was good.  We hit the grocery store to pick up a few things we needed after that.  Now, I'm sitting in the room on my bed relaxing.  I like my planner.  I am going to see if I can't get some more stuff for it.  I'm hoping the inserts that I got will work for a planner I have at home.  The planner I bought was one I've never seen. It's got weird rings.  It's pretty though . It's green and has Hello on the cover.  The receipt says "Planner Hell" LOL!

I am going to take a beach walk later, I am not sure when.  Sometime between now and midnight.  I still need to do my French lesson.  I guess I can do that after I finish posting this.  I might go out on the balcony for a bit.  My friend is watching tv and it's way too loud.  I already have a headache and it's not helping at all. 

Oh, I forgot to mention I got to go to the Starbucks at NMB.  It's one of my favorite stores.  I was able to get a stack of gift cards that I didn't have.  Yay! ^___^


Thursday afternoon

I slept a little later today than I have been all week.  I got up at 10:30, the same time I do at home. I ate some leftover pizza.  We ordered some late last night.  I walked to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area.  I went to the Gay Dolphin.  I got several small things, a cute little wallet that I looked at last trip, and a shirt.  I left there and hit the boardwalk and walked to the 2nd Avenue Pier.  I was going to go out on the pier, but when I got up to where you pay to go out, there were too many people. I decided to not go out on the pier.  I came back here and changed shirts and sat down to cool off and relax a bit. I'm going to share some pictures I took and then heat up some more left over pizza!

Late night post!

So, we did go out long enough to eat.  We went to Dairy Queen and hit the drive thru.  We got the chicken strip basket dinners.  It was good.  After we ate, we headed back here! I was hoping we'd go a few places but no, we came right back here.

I decided to get a small walk in and went for my nightly beach walk.  I went further than I usually do.  I walked to the point that I usually go to.  It's one of the hotels we have stayed at before.  There is a park next to it that has a Pokestop.  I go and hit the Pokestop and then head back down the beach to the hotel we are at now.  Instead of coming in, I went on further down the beach to the Springmaid Pier (well, what is left of it!) and walked under it and on the other side for a little bit and then came back.

I am now back in the room relaxing and charging my Fitbit.  I am not sure if I'm going to do anything else tonight.  My friend suggested ordering pizza later. I'm all for that. :p . I'll be glad to eat a few slices.  


Evening post

So, I didn't walk today.  My friend finally got up and we went out on the beach.  We sat out there for a while.  I took a lot of pictures, of course. :p . I went and put my feet in the water and it was nice.  We came in a little bit ago and I took a quick shower and dressed.  Now I'm just waiting on my friend to get ready.  We are going to dinner.  I have no idea where we are going yet.  I hope it's something good.  I'm hungry! lol

Here is some of the pictures that I took while we were on the beach:
