Pepperoni pizza Feed

Walk today, not tomorrow.

My walk today was nice, but it was a bit cooler than yesterday.  I got home and relaxed for a bit. I had thought I'd go to Starbucks, but my friend texted about going to Roma and getting pizza.  I am not going to turn down free pizza. lol We went and I have two slices for tomorrow.  (We split a pizza)   It's supposed to be nasty tomorrow, so I'm not planning on walking.  We are under a winter storm warning.  It's actually doing something outside right now, but I think it's only rain.  It's supposed to turn to snow and freezing rain and sleet and all that other good stuff overnight.  In any case, tomorrow will not be a walk day.

I'm still sore from moving my room around, but it's much better today.  It would have been even better if I had been able to take a hot bath.  Soaking in a hot bath is blessed relief when I'm sore.  It's also just nice.  Oh well.  I guess I'll get my water heater fixed by the summer. ~_~;   

I did a little more straightening in my room.  Just moving things around and organizing things better.  I like it.  Everything is so neat and in it's place.  I love it when everything is organized.  In moving my room around and cleaning under the bed, I found my light up Kindle case.  I found it at Goodwill some time ago and I couldn't figure out where the heck I put it.  It was stored in a box under my bed.  The case is pink leather and it has a built in light that you pull out when you need it.  My Kindle is one of the older ones and it has no backlight.  I like that about it.  The light will be handy if I want to read in low light. It's a nice case and it's pretty too. :p

 


Winter weather is coming.

It was very cold today.  I didn't walk.  I should have, but I knew it was going to be cold, so I didn't.  My friend wanted to go to our favorite local pizza place so I did go out.  It was just as cold as I thought it would be. BRR!  My friend got us both a pizza each.  He said it would be good to have in case we do get the bad weather.  I only ate two slices of mine, so I have a lot left.  I'll probably eat something else for dinner tonight and save the pizza for tomorrow and Sunday.

I realized that I might not walk tomorrow because of the cold again.  I needed to get my prescription.  That way, if it did get bad out there, I'd have my prescription and wouldn't have to worry about going out to get it in bad weather.  I think we are going to get more ice than snow. Boo!

I have a game on my iPad that I love. I'm pretty sure it's available on Android too. It's called Puzzle Page.  Every day there is a collection of games.  There are usually a word search and crossword.  There are also other types of puzzles. It's fun.  It's gotten me to try different puzzles that I might not have tried before.  I have been enjoying the Sudoku puzzles.  I'm still playing at easy level, but I've hoping to go to harder levels as I learn more.  Puzzle Pages is a lot of fun.  If you like puzzles, check it out!


Hello from Friday!

I didn't forget to post yesterday, I just didn't get time to.  My text messaging has been hit or miss from one of my friends. (The one I text most with.) . I tried different SMS apps last night and finally went with one that I had used in the past.  I seemed to be getting his texts after that.  I hope it's working now.

The bad thing is that I am not getting notifications on my Fitbit when I get a text.  Out of all the texts I've gotten since I changed sms apps,  only got one notification on my Fitbit. UGH!  I don't know if the texting issues were on my end on my friend's.  I guess if it continues, I'll have to contact AT&T and get them to troubleshoot.  Hopefully I'll get it worked out and I also hope to get my notifications again.

The notification on my Fitbit helps when I am walking.  A lot of times I can't hear the phone because I have my ear buds in.  This way, at least I know I have a text and if it's something I need to reply to.

It poured rain all day today so I didn't walk.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston again to get something he saw the last time we were up there.  He was able to get it and we went to Dini's brothers and ate again.  That place is so good!

We came back to town and went to a thrift store.  I got a dish drainer and some pen holders.  Exciting, I know. :p

 


Ouch ouch ouch

My poor head is killing me at the moment.  I have the headache from hell.  I didn't sleep well last night and then woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston today and go to a pawn shop, a Goodwill, and to eat.  He asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go.  He would buy lunch and get me some things at the thrift store.  I went.  I usually find a lot of things at that particular Goodwill, but I only found a little bag with various office supplies and a pair of black flats.  I have been needing a pair of nice black flats. These look pretty much brand new, too.  They are comfy and I like them a lot. 

We ate at Dini's brothers. It's a pizza / sub place in SoBo.  We split a pizza and it was good.  When we got back to Danville, we went to the Goodwill here.  I found more goodies.  A journal, a digital camera kit, a Spirograph with all the pieces but one, some cute stationery, and two Starbucks tumblers!! They are from 2007 and they are both grande size.  The lid on one of them wasn't the right lid, but the other one's lid fit on both, and I wouldn't be using both at the same time anyway!  I couldn't pass them up for .99 each!

Oh, I also got a caramel macchiato at the McDonald's as we were leaving SoBo.  It was pretty tasty, too! I was hoping to spot some extra cases for my iPad Mini at the thrift stores. I have seen them before.  I like having a variety of cases. lol 

My Fossil canvas purse came today and it's so cute.  I'll have to do another post after this and do a picture post of some of today's goodies. I would do it with this post, but I'm sitting under the hair bonnet hair dryer so it's not possible at the moment. I took several pictures of the Starbucks tumblers, but I haven't taken one of the purse yet.  It's khaki colored canvas and it has a cute yellow floral interior.  It's a small bag, but it holds everything I need.  The front zipper pocket can be used as a wallet if you want.  I like it.  I'll post my haul in a bit after my hair is dry.  The heat from the dryer is very soothing to my painful head!

Another thing I needed came in today's mail.  My closet light went out recently.  To turn it on and off, you pull a string from the light bulb adapter thingee.  My adapter thingee quit working so I ordered one from Amazon. It's nice to have light in my closet again. I had tried one of those tap lights, but it wasn't nearly enough light.  I am glad to have this fixed again.

Now, I just need to finish drying my hair and I'll post some of my goodies. :)


Friday Fun

I walked today and it was cool out there.  It wasn’t too bad though.  I got home from my walk and relaxed a bit. My friend had wanted to go eat yesterday, but I had to wait to sign for my package, so he decided we’d eat today.  We went to Roma which is one of our favorite local pizza restaurants.  It was delicious as usual.  After eating,  he dropped me home.

I immediately stated looking for an program to move that one app to my iPad. I still can’t get it to do it.  I found some apps that might work, but you have to pay to use that feature, and I’m afraid that I’ll pay and still not be able to do it.  There has to be a legit, free way to do it.  UGH! I might chat with Apple support tomorrow and see if they might have a suggestion.

Remember the Fossil satchel bag that I got that smelled highly of perfume?  Well, it doesn’t now.  My friend has an ozone generator and he put it in a room with it for a day and it doesn’t smell like perfume anymore. Yay! I changed to it tonight.

Tomorrow is my last day of walking for a few days.  Well, probably. We are supposed to have a big winter storm event here on Sunday. If it snows, I’ll be sitting at my deck with a cup of coffee looking out at the snow. ^_^. I kind of hope it does snow. It will be pretty and it always makes everything smell so much better!


Brrrrrrrrrrrr

Today was the coldest day we've had here so far. It was really cold on my walk.  I had on a lot of layers and I was still cold.  It's supposed to be a little warmer tomorrow, but it's supposed to rain.  We are supposed to get ice overnight. I'm probably not going to attempt to walk tomorrow. Cold is one thing, cold and rainy is quite another!  

I got my walk in despite the cold air today.  I came home and warmed up and relaxed a bit.  I went in the basement.  The water still hasn't gone down all the way, but was it lower than the water heater. I was not able to get it lit today. I really was hoping to since it's supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow.  Hopefully it won't be too much rain and the basement won't get anymore water! I really want to be able to wash my hair without boiling water on the stove on Sunday! 

My NaNo mug and buttons came in today's mail. The is so cute. I love it.  I also love the buttons.  Here is the mug:

It was sitting on my nightstand next to the flash drive with the backup copy of my NaNo book.  I wrote 2618 words tonight! I'm less than 5000 words from finishing NaNo this year. Yay!  My friend texted me right before my usual lunch time today and said if I could wait a bit, we'd go eat.  I asked how long and he said about 30 minutes, so I agreed. I was already hungry, but we were going to one of our favorite local pizza places so that was good. It was delicious, as always and I brought home a couple of slices that I ate for my dinner tonight.

I have done Nano, I've done my French, I'm about to finish my blog post, and then I just need to add a backup copy of my work to the flash drive.  After that, I'm going to relax and read until bed time. I was up later than I planned last night and then I couldn't sleep well at all.  Boo on that!


Hello!

Yeah, I didn't forget to post last night.  I had some crazy house issues!  Let me tell you about my day yesterday and then we'll get to today, okay?  Well, I got in a good walk yesterday.  I came home and did some things around the house.  I decided to take a hot bath since I hadn't had a good soak in a while.  This was the start of my misery! Lol . The bath itself was lovely.  I got out and went to do other things. I went back and noticed that the tub hadn't drained any.  Also, my faucet leaks so it wasn't draining and the faucet was just making things worse!  I took a bucket and got out as much water as I could and then put a towel down to catch the rest.  I put a bucket in to catch the drips and then went to do something else.  I come back and the drip isn't all going into the bucket and the tub is starting to get water again.  UGH!  I was in there plunging like nobody's business! LOL!  I worked on it so long I was sweating and getting more frustrated. My friend texted me and I gave a terse, "ok" reply.  He asked if anything was wrong. I told him what was going on and that I was just frustrated.  He offered to come and try to fix it.  I didn't want him to since it was already after 11pm and he works early in the mornings.  He came anyway! He was able to get it to drain. YAY!  By the time he did that and left, it was after midnight!  

I had been working on NaNo before all the water issues happened and didn't get to finish.  I had the lowest word count I've had since I started.  I only had 1525 words last night.  I updated my count at NaNo and just decided that since I've been going over every day, that wasn't going to hurt.  I was right as I wrote 2358 tonight! Whoo!  I have now hit 16,000 words! WHEE!  I happened to notice that the Pizza Hut site had a deal on a large two topping pizza.  Guess what I had for dinner?  I had my NaNo pizza after all! I had already hit my goal of 10,000.  I have to hit that before I treat myself to the pizza.  I shouldn't have gotten it, but it was a lot cheaper than I was expecting so I got it! It was delicious and I have leftovers for tomorrow!

So, I had to run an errand to Target right before my writing session tonight. I went to the Starbucks in there and asked if they honored the happy hour special that the regular Starbucks did.  They do, so I got my grande Cascara latte. Half price Starbucks? I'm there!  I also got several of the holiday gift cards to add to my collection AND a cup.  I had the red cup and green cup already. I wanted the white cup with the green leaves and red coffee cherries on it.  The cup I got wasn't that one and I mentioned to the Barista that I'd been hoping for the other one.  She gave me one. ^___^ So, I got my errands done, got some new cards for my collection and got the cup I wanted to add to my collection. :)

I did walk today too.  I have done my French lesson too.  The new colors and banner have been up for a few days here on the blog. I'm still not sure if I love them yet. LOL . I don't hate them, so that is good. I guess they'll stay for a bit.  Of course, knowing me, I might change them tomorrow! LOL!

 


We're here!

We got here around 3 and checked in.  An hour after that we were in the room and unpacked.  We had to go on a crazy hunt for drink machines.  We kept trying to get Mountain Dew and it kept giving us Pepsi! :(  Once it gave us Dr. Pepper and then a Sunkist Orange! LOL!  We have a lot of Pepsi now.  Phooey.  I so wanted a Dew.  I'll get one if we go out later!

It's beautiful here.  I haven't taken a lot of pictures because of there being so many people on the beach.  I will take a lot more pictures during the week.  I will share one with you now, though:

20180902_162438

I want to get some great shots for phone wallpaper.  We are going to order a pizza and eat that and then see what we are going to do after that.  I'm so ready.  I might post again later tonight, We'll see!  Oh! We stopped in Longs SC and went to the Goodwill there.  I got a cute pair of brand new shorts with the tags still on them and a little notebook.  You know how I am with notebooks. LOL 

My new little crossbody purse was perfect.  I carry a trip journal with me on trips and it fits in there perfectly.  I could probably get my Bujo in there too if I wanted.  We are probably going to order pizza from Pizza Hut as they are having a special deal of a 2 topping pizza for $7.99!  Whoo hoo baby! LOL!


What is life?

So, it was almost sometime around 4 am last night when I finally got to bed.  I was not feeling it today at all!  I got up at my regular time and did my regular routine though.  It's ridiculously hot.  We had a few days where it wasn't too bad and I was thinking, good, fall weather is coming.  Nope, it's still full summer here. UGH!  I hate to come home soaked to the skin with sweat.  It's gross.  

I took a rest and cooled off after I got home and then did my workouts.  I was working on my French when my friend texted and said we were going to eat.  I figured I could do my French later. :P . We at at a local Italian restaurant that we really like.  It's great food and it's not expensive.  We usually share a pizza.  My half is alway pepperoni. YUM!  After that, we swung by his house.  He had some frozen sandwiches to give me and he ordered a key for my treadmill and it came today.  He also had a houseplant on his porch! 

His stepdad died a week or so ago and his place of work sent a plant.  He let me take it home. Yay!  It's got Pothos, Peace Lily and three other plants in it.  It's very pretty.  I just have to find the perfect spot to put it in.  He came in with me to make sure the treadmill worked.  It did! Yay! I only got on it for a few minutes for a test run.  I don't have any fans in there yet and it was stifling hot in there.  I hope to get some fans next month on end of the season sales!  I really need some anyway.  It would be nice to have some for other parts of the house so I'm not dying in them.

I hope it's is a little cooler tomorrow for my walk.  It's just brutal out there.  It makes me want to just stay home in my air conditioned room and never leave!


Thursday post of doom....

Okay, so I am feeling just bleah and I don't really want to post, but I am going to.  I got up today and I felt like hell. I didn't sleep well and I surely didn't feel like walking.  I went anyway.  It did rain for a short while but it didn't last long and after that, I didn't have to use the umbrella at all.  I got home and decided to skip my workouts.  Then, I got up and did those too!  I put a load of clothes in to wash and my friend texted me that we'd go eat.  I didn't know where, but I am usually up for food!

We went to South Boston, Virginia.  It's about 25 miles or so away.  Maybe more, I'm not sure.  We ate a local pizza place. It was great!  The pizza was delicious.  The crust, the pepperoni, the cheese, yum.  Everything was delicious.  The only thing I'd change about the place is they serve pepsi products.  I prefer Coke when I have a soda.

We left there and went to the Goodwill.  Sadly, it was almost closing time, so we were only in there a few minutes.  We didn't want to hold them up.  After that, we stopped at a McDonald's.  He got some ice cream and I got a caramel macchiato. :P  I ordered and he paid for a small.  I didn't realize until we were down the road a bit that they gave me a medium!  

I came back here and watched an episode of Cold Case Files and read the new Stephen King short story that he has for free on his website: Stephen King .com

It was good as most of his works are.  Now, I'm waiting on a load of clothes in the dryer and I'm going back to the true crime book I started last night. It's really good so far!
