Welcome 2019

It is now 2019 and it was in the 60's today!  It was very nice outside for my walk.  Such a big change from the rain yesterday.  I enjoyed my walk quite a bit!  It was great to walk in short sleeves. ^_^

In other news, I ended 2018 by going to Starbucks and I started 2019 with the same. :P . My friend who never wants to go when I ask wanted to go tonight.  I hadn't really planned to go today, but when she agreed, I couldn't say no. lol 

I never found a way to watch ABC last night. :( . I had to watch a stream of NBC and I didn't know that they didn't show the ball drop.  The live stream was also a few minutes behind, so I actually saw it hit midnight before they showed it.  I was not happy.  Hopefully, ABC will get with the program and get local streaming in my area by next year!

 


Goodbye 2018

It's hard to believe that this year is almost over.  Just a few more hours and we get to start anew.  It was overcast when I left for my walk today.  The weather apps said it would not rain during my walk.  Well, my weather apps, LIED.  As soon as my feet hit the street and I started up my street, it began raining. It rained for almost my entire walk.  I was not amused!  I was quite happy when I got home.  I had to put my clothes in the dryer.  I also put my shoes on either side of the heater to dry them out, too.  

I mailed off letters during today's walk and then I had one more I needed to mail after I got home.  I decided to mail that and went to Starbucks while I was out. Yay! It was delicious, of course. :p  I wanted to end the year right.

With my walk and my trip to Starbucks, I also took down my Yule tree.  It took longer than it should because all the lights decided they wanted to get tangled up. lol . I was finally able to get them all off and packed away.  Everything is back in the boxes for next year.  I am going to relax the rest of the evening and get ready to watch the ball drop on TV.  I  was able to stream that last year, so I'm hoping I'll be able to again this year. It won't feel like New Year's Eve without that!

Welcome 2018

So, today was like a usual day for me.  I went for a walk and then came home and did my workouts.  It was COLD on my walk, but I found my compression pants and I wore those under another layer and that helped a lot!  I wanted to walk to the post office while on my walk, but I just didn't feel like going that far today.  Luckily, a friend of mine offered to run me on two errands this evening. One was to the post office, and one was to Starbucks! :D  I had another free drink, and I got a Cascara latter, a Venti since it was free. I also got the coffee press ornament.  It's cute!  Now I have two from this year's ornament collection.  It was marked down to $3.99.  Today was an extra chance to get plays on #Starbucksforlife  I got the ornament so I'd actually have a purchase today since the free drink wouldn't count.  At least I don't think it would count.

I came home and played.  I didn't win, yet. :p  I have gotten several instant wins of bonus stars and I did win the fifty bonus stars spot.  I really want to win the grand prize.  I could go every single day if I wanted! :D :D :D  That would be amazing!  

So far, 2018 hasn't been too bad. I got Starbucks and I got to check my post office box. Yes, I had mail!  I had several pen pal letters.  Some from pen pals I haven't heard from in a while Yay!  I love getting letters.  I hope to be able to sit down tomorrow and get a bunch written.  I have a good stack since I got a few before the holidays.  I'd like to get at least half of them done and ready to mail.

Okay, I'm off to do my French lesson and then I'm going to play more Pocket Camp! :D  I'm waiting on my tree house to be built and it's taking forever! AHHHH!


Goodbye 2017!

Yes, in less than an hour this year will be finished and good riddance to it!  It wasn't as big of a dumpster fire as 2016 was, but it wasn't a lot better.  I'm hoping that 2018 is the best year ever!  I made the easiest resolution of all.  Drink more coffee. :P  Not a problem to fulfill this one. :D 

I am going to play Pocket Camp with ABC on mute so I can watch the ball drop. LOL  I don't care for the 'entertainment', I just want to see the ball drop in Times Square.  After that, I'll play more Animal Crossing before going to bed.  Here is hoping that 2018 is a good one.
