Sunday and Starbucks!

I went out this afternoon and went by Starbucks and treated myself to a latte and a sandwich!  I got a vanilla latte with caramel and a double-smoked bacon sandwich. Delicious!  I also washed my car while out. It has rained the past few days and I noticed mud on my car.  It was from where it rained so hard that it splashed on the car.  I decided while out to wash it.  I could have brought it back here, but I went by the car wash that has the 'all washes $5' and they were fixed and running!  

I didn't do anything else while out.  I ate my sandwich near the Starbucks and then headed to the car wash.  I sipped on my coffee and still had a little when I got home which I enjoyed in the car while watching my resident groundhog.  The little cutie came out from one of my outbuildings.  He tried to climb a little tree out there and fell off.  Poor guy!  He was okay, though.  He is such a cutie!

I went in the house and got the trash together and carried it to the can. I put it on the street for the trash trucks tomorrow.  I also noticed some branches down and carried them to the street too.  The grass needs mowing again, but it's still wet, so I'll have to wait until at least tomorrow for that.  I came in and put away the laundry I washed yesterday, tossed the bed linen in the dryer, washed my hair, and then sat down for a bit.  I got a lot accomplished.  I might read some, I'm not sure. I finally finished my current read.  I started in early last month!  I didn't pick it up as much as other reads, so it took me a long time to finish.  I am probably going with a zombie or post-apocalyptic book next.  I usually devour those pretty darn quickly!

OH! I forgot to mention that yesterday when I went to Reidsville, I set off a 'blast' on Munzee. It is the one that will capture up to 50 virtual Munzees that are in the area of up to a mile (or a bit over, I forget). Anyway! I did it and I got 50 virtuals.  Cool!  I was going to go around and deploy some physical munzees today, but I wanted to give everything a chance to dry out a little more!


So sorry!

I have been guilty of not posting.  I finally was able to get the title to my car yesterday.  Sadly the DMVs around here are appointment only and the first available one is August 21st! Sheesh!  There are some DMV select locations that take walk-ins but they are about an hour away.  I wouldn't really trust my old car to make it!  My friend has already taken time off work too much, so I can't ask him to do it again.  I'm hoping something changes so I can get my car registered and tagged.  I really want to drive it.  Mine is acting up as usual and it's so frustrating!

I had to get a few gallons of gas in the old car tonight just in case I needed to go anywhere and it was looking pretty ominous out there.  I stayed out a bit and then as I was headed back, the bottom fell out.  It was pouring rain, lightning, and thunder, and it was NUTS!  I had a horrible time trying to get home because I couldn't see anything. I finally made it to where I turn off the main road to go into the neighborhood when something exploded!  I finally got into the neighborhood and home but the entire block was without power and it was out for a while, too!  Luckily it came back before I got hot from lack of air.  I fixed some dinner and now I'm just going to relax until bedtime!  Here are a few pictures of the sky I took before the storm hit in force.

Apparently power was out all over the city in various places.  That was a wild storm!


A big oops!

I didn't post for two days.  I totally meant to post yesterday to make up for not posting on Tuesday and then I realized it was two minutes to midnight and it wasn't going to happen!  I'll post now though.  I received my latest Starbucks find in the mail.  This is the second time I had to order it.  The first one from another seller never came.  I couldn't put in a claim on it because with informed delivery, I thought it was here.  It wasn't. It was something else and I had already canceled my "I didn't get it claim" So, I found one from another seller and bought it.  This is the card in  question:

It's a nice one and I was happy to add it to my collection. The lovely seller sent a couple of extra cards because they didn't mail it out the same day.  Pretty cool, yet?  I have both of the extra ones, but only one of each so it will be nice to have the backups.

As for life, I haven't really done anything exciting. Life has been boring since the beach.  So, so boring. Ahhhh.


Hello again!

Sorry about not posting for the last two days.  On Wednesday, I walked, but I got blisters.  This was unusual.  I was not happy about that.  That evening, I fully intended to post to my blog and I got to doing other things I forgot.  I did a puzzle that day and wanted to share it.  I'll share it today.

First though, let's talk about yesterday.  I didn't walk.  I woke up feeling pretty bleah and out of sorts.  I decided I'd walk later in the day.  I took a nap, and relaxed.  I didn't feel like doing much.  My friend texted me and asked if I wanted to try one of the restaurants here in town we've wanted to try but have't yet.  I said, yes!  It's a local Italian restaurant. It was delicious.  I got Fettuccini Alfredo. OMG it was so good.  They serve it with a bread roll and Foccia bread.   Yummy!  I enjoyed it a lot.  Definitely a place to go back to!

When we got back to my house, my friend put some stuff in my car to see if it would help it run a little better. We drove around a bit to see if it helped.  It didn't. lol Oh well! After he left, I got in my mail and saw that I had a sample of dog treats.  I got them to give to my friend's dog.  I went up to their house and treats were passed out all around. lol . I stayed awhile and then headed home.  I didn't start my next puzzle because it was late.  I decided to wait until today.  I worked the whole thing. lol  Here is the one from two days ago and today's:

These were both from the box of 6.  The first was 300 pieces and the second was 500.  I'll probably do the last puzzle in the box tomorrow (or at least start it).  I also decided to put some of my Adventure Time stickers to good use.  I put them on the MacBook Pro.  I laid them out and figured out the design before sticking them on.  I wanted to put on Marcy and PB too, but I didn't have room.  I like the way the ones I put on look.  Here is that:

LSP, Peppermint Butler, Finn & Jake, BMO, Gunter, and Ice King. ^_^  I love it!  Also, as an added bonus, you can see my bujo in this picture. :p Oh! I walked today and everything was okay with my poor feet. :p
