Simpsons fun

So, I'm working my way through all of the Simpson's episodes on Fox Now.  It's been fun.  I love the animation in the old shows. You know, when they were still hand drawn.  I think it looked better than it does now.  They had more personality.  Oh well, I still enjoy the current shows.  I mean, I've only watched the show since it was a short on the Tracy Ullman show. 

Today's walk was even colder than yesterday.  At least it wasn't windy like yesterday.  I don't think I could have taken that!  I just checked the weather for tomorrow and it's supposed to be pretty much what it was today.  I'll bundle up again and I'll be okay.

 


Windy weather

Today's walk was quite a bit cooler than yesterday's.  It was also crazy windy too.  When I was coming back, it felt like it would have been faster and to turn around and let the wind blow me the other way. lol   I got through though and came home.

My friend came to try to get my pilot light lit on my water heater.  There was still some water down there and he didn't have his rubber boots, so he couldn't go down there.  Hopefully it will be fixed eventually.  I would like to have hot water for my dishes, at least!

 I was able to stop at the pharmacy and drop off my new insurance card.  I'm glad to have that done.  I think there should be a way to do all this online. It's 2019, not 1995! Sheesh!  Oh well.  I have been using this pharmacy for a year now since Kmart closed. I still don't like it.  If my car was always dependable, I'd transfer it somewhere else!

The temperature tomorrow isn't supposed to get up to 40 all day.  I hope it's not windy, too.  I'll walk, but I'll have to bundle up more. I'm trying not to miss any walks this week in case it does snow this weekend.  That could possibly keep me from walking for a few days.

 


Nice day!

It was quite nice on today's walk.  It was actually warm enough for short sleeves.  That was wonderful.  It's supposed to be cooler from here on out, so it was good to have a nice day.  They are actually calling for snow again this weekend.  I don't know if it will, but we'll see!

I new insurance card finally came today! I drove down to the post office to pick it up and check my box.  I got it and I also had four letters.  I'm glad my card finally came.  I'll run it by the pharmacy tomorrow on my walk.  I just need to remember to do that!

My purse STILL has not shipped. UGH. Expedited shipping my ass!  When I sell on ebay, I sent off the item as quickly as possible after payment.  Usually the same day.  I wish all sellers would do that!

I finished the first of my jigsaw puzzles last night.  The last little part was the hardest.  It was mainly green leaves and a few flowers. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I got it done.  I like to keep my puzzles once I do them.  When I was trying to flip it over to tape the back, part of it fell apart and I had to re-do that part.  It's all together now and taped so it's ready to keep.  I'll start the other puzzle in a day or two.


Good mail day!

I got my washi today and it's so pretty!  I also got my pen loop for my Leuchtturm.  My purse still hasn't shipped. Boo!  Here is some pictures of today's goodies:

The Starbucks cup didn't come in the mail. I went over there for that. :P . I played Starbucks for Life as I usually do. I won a bunch of stars and a I even won a free bakery item.  The coupon was running out today, so I went over there and got a cookie.  I also got a cascara latte while I was there.  They are almost out of cascara syrup.  Boo!  I'll miss it.  Hopefully they'd bring it back again.  


Hello

It wasn't sunny today, but it was warm.  It was around 60! It was pretty nice for walking.  I got in my walk and I was able to stop by the dollar store and get a few things I needed.  I also found a great smelling candle for .30!  It was in the holiday markdown stuff.  I wonder if they have any more. It smells so good. It's called Frosted Fir and smells like a fresh tree. 

I needed some tape, and I was hoping there would be some in the holiday markdown section, but no go. I got some in the regular section though, so that was okay.  I also got a package of copy paper as I was completely out.  Some of the pen pal letters I wrote last week were on green paper because I was out of my regular white sheets.

I didn't do much when I got home. I washed my hair and my bed linen. I've had a really bad headache, so doing other things was not an option.  I mainly just sat around. I played some Bingo on my iPad and watched The Simpsons on FXNow.  I love watching the episodes, but the commercials are driving me nuts.  They are mainly the same ones over and over and they are annoying as hell!  I just mute them when they come on!

Tomorrow, I should be receiving a pen loop for my Leuchtturm bullet journal and a new set of washi. It's from my favorite brand/company of washi. Molshine.  I love their washi.  This set is 10 rolls, I think.  It's so pretty from the pictures. The thing about their washi, is it's always better looking in person than in pictures. I love their washi!  I'll post pictures tomorrow.  

Oh! I also found another Fossil purse on ebay. ^^;;;;; I saw it, watched it, and then bought it all within five minutes. lol . I hope I love it in person as much as I did on the site.  That hasn't shipped yet, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.


Sunny again!!!!

It was actually sunny today!  It's been so long since it has been.  That was nice.  I stopped at the grocery store on the way home.  I forgot to get my granola bars the other day.  Luckily, they were 3/$5 today.  I got those and then, when I was checking out, I noticed that they had some candy bars on sale.  Oops! lol 

Most of the water is now out of my basement!  I turned the pump back on today before I left for my walk.  I went and checked on it at 9 tonight and it was still pumping water but it was a slow trickle.  I turned it off for the night and went down and checked.  The water is way down finally.  Yay! Hopefully my friend or I will be able to get the pilot lit soon.  I also hope to get the pump running so that it won't flood again.

 


Rain again

I swear it's never going to dry out here.  I decided to skip my walk today. I did not feel like holding the umbrella through the entire walk!  I just stayed in and stayed dry.  I did go out in the evening. My friend wanted to go to Roma and get pizza, so we did.  He ran me by the post office while we were out and I got a bunch of mail.  Quite a few pen pal letters and information from my newer insurance.  I didn't think any of that was ever going to come.   That is one less thing to stress about.

I realized today that I didn't get any granola bars when I went to the grocery store yesterday.  I usually get enough boxes to get me through the month. I eat one for breakfast everyday.  I will get them tomorrow.  They are two for five dollars this week, but for one day only, tomorrow, they are three for five dollars.  I'll get them on my way home from my walk.  Hopefully they'll have plenty. 

I started one of the jigsaw puzzles I got for myself.  The pieces are smaller than I'd prefer, but they aren't too bad.  Here is what I have so far:

Wowee!

My friend got me a pump for my basement that is supposed to come on when the water gets a certain depth.  I haven't been down there in a while so I didn't know how much there was.  It was deep.  He turned on the pump and we kept it on for several hours. I would have left it going, but it's supposed to rain tomorrow and since it was so deep to begin with, he couldn't go down there to plug it in.  It's plugged into an extension cord and into an outside outlet.  I went down before I unplugged it for the night and there is still a LOT of water down there. It's crazy!

Hopefully once we get this water out and this thing is installed, I won't have this problem anymore.  That is the hope! It's now been almost 2 months since I had hot water and it's getting very old.  I got in a decent walk today.  It rained again last night, so the ground was wet in some places and there were some puddles on the sidewalk.   All this rain is nuts.

I came home and got some things done and then my friend came to install the pump.  After he left, I went to get gas and then went to the grocery store.  I knew I would be in the store awhile as I was getting most of this month's groceries.  I didn't leave it running because I was afraid it would overheat.

Luckily I was able to get it to start right away.  I didn't go anywhere else. I didn't want to risk it.  I am glad that I was able to get some groceries. I was out of just about everything!  Most of the stuff I got was on sale too.  Only a few things weren't. I also got a set of cute snowman face cups discounted from the holiday stuff. I love snowmen and I can always use more coffee cups. :p

 

 


What day is this?

Holidays always get my all confused on what day it is.   Happens every year at this time. :p . I walked today even though I didn't feel well.  My right ear is giving me problems. It was hurting and I think I might have an ear infection.  Hopefully it can clear up on it's own.  I don't have the money to go to the doctor at the moment, and my new insurance cards haven't come.  They should have come already.  I'm going to have to look into that.

 

 


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!
