Recycle and more!

So I loaded up my recycling today to carry it to the containers.  My car did just fine. ~_~;  I only at to drive a short distance at the speed limit is 25, but the car was doing fine and actually got above 25 mph.  Figures! I just did my recycling and then went to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed before they went off sale.  I didn't have anywhere else to go, so I just headed home.  It figures the day I didn't need my car to go fast, it worked okay.  Oh well!  

It has been a really long day and I didn't do much of anything.  I'm going to get some more reading done on my book.  The new King book comes out tomorrow and you know I want it! I put my name on the wait list of ebooks at the library.  I wish I had thought of that sooner!  Oh well, maybe if I go down there, I'll see a copy on the shelf. It happened once with one of his books, but I can't remember which one, now.  I went in, looked at the new releases, saw it, and snatched it up! 


On time today!

I got my walk it at the regular time today.  It was a bit cooler earlier so that was nice.  I forgot to carry any change with me and I couldn't get a drink at my half way point.  I was going to use Google or Samsung pay but I hadn't set up one with the right card, and they one I did set up I needed the number on the back of the card.  I was only off one number. In other words, I didn't get a drink!  Oh well, at least it wasn't as hot as it has been.

After I came home, I did my usual things.  I had lunch and then was relaxing a bit. I remembered that I had planned to go to the recycle center, so I loaded up my car and went.  I got that done and then went over to Food Lion to recycle my bags.  The recycling bins have "no plastic bags" on them, so I save those separately.  Food Lion has bins outside just for those, so I got those recycled too!  I left my car running at both places.  I was able to get down there and back with no issues, so that was good.

I picked up my book again last night and I actually read more on it than I have since I started it. lol It's getting a lot better and there have been some new characters added that I like.  One of them is a pup!  i love dogs, so I love books with dogs in them.  Heck, my Zombie books are full of dogs. LOL . We have... let's see, two grown Corgis, many Corg pups, a Jack Russell, a mini Doxie, a terrier mix, a poodle mix, a lab, a golden mix, lab and golden puppies, and ... I think that is all? Yeah, we have a lot of dogs.  There are three cats, too! :P The dog in this book is a Viszla.  Very cute pooches!  They better not kill the dog.  That will ruin the entire book.

I am going to read some more on that after I post this.  I have all my other chores done for today, so I can spent some time reading.  I would like to finish it tonight, but I don't know if I'll have time.  OH! I forgot to mention that I DID get the Goodreads widget to work!  It's on the blog now so you can check it out. :)


Cooler, but nice!

Today's walk was a bit cooler than it has been being, but it was still nice to walk.  The wind got a little crazy.  I made it home and relaxed a bit.  I was supposed to go to the recycle center when I got home and forgot.  I got to it after I ate lunch.  I can't turn my car off for fear it won't start, so I was hoping to get a clear shot at the recycle center.  No luck.  There was a car at it that parked exactly where i usually park.  I had to wait FOREVER for this girl to finish.  I don't know what in the hell she was doing and what was taking so long.  Another lady pulled up, recylced her stuff in less than two minutes and left.  Then, another slow one came.  I swear she was standing there taking each piece of her recycled stuff and putting in the bin ONE at a time. UGH! She finally left and I went over there.  It took me maybe four minutes.  I had three bags of plastics, two bags of cans, and a huge tote full of mixed papers. 

I considered getting a snack from a drive thru while out, but I was good and headed back home.  I worked on the puzzle some more.  I have to say that it is SO frustrating!  I might have gotten 15 pieces in the puzzle today.  20 tops.  I finally was able to get all the pieces out of the box and put them on the whiteboard.  Some of them I put on completed parts of the puzzle, but there are all there now.  I found the majority of the pieces today by being able to glance around at all the pieces.  It helps.  I just know that I'll be very glad when this puzzle is done! :p

All I have left to do today is do my words for NaNo.  I'm not sure what to write tonight. I've been doing short stories based on my books.  I'm doing them from other characters POV.  I am trying to decide who I want to do next.  I had a big event in my last book that my main character wasn't there for. She came in in the aftermath.  I might tell that tale from one of the people that were there.  I'm not sure yet.

I'm not going to share a puzzle picture tonight because I don't have much more done.  Plus it looks weird with all the pieces all over the place. lol!  Okay, I changed my mind:

Look at the bottom part of the puzzle.  All those pieces that are shaped almost identical? THAT is one of the reasons this puzzle is so hard.  They are all about the same size, mostly the same colors.  It's insane!  I might work on it a bit more tonight, and I might not.

I downloaded a bunch of free zombie Kindle books to my Kindle last night.  I started one before bed last night.  I have read anything this year. Well, that isn't entirely true. I've been listening to audiobooks on my walks everyday, but I haven't read anything.  I am in the mood for zombie fiction since I'm working on stories from my books.  They are all zombie fiction. :p


Hmmm

So, I'm actually posting three days in a row. Yay! I got in a good walk today.  I was really feeling pretty good while walking.  I got home and did four of my five workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  The 100 burpee burnout was on today's workout calendar. YIKES!  That makes twice this month.  I did it, though! :)

I have been working on laundry today.  I am finishing up the bed linens that my friend gave me.  I'm also working on a load of my clothes.  I need to get those out of the dryer as soon as they are done.  I had a huge load of clothes.  I shouldn't wait so long. :p I got to drive my car again today. It started up just fine.  I had to inflate the tire on the front passenger side.  It goes flat easily.  I need to replace it as soon as I can.  

I got the tire inflated and loaded 12 bags of recyclables into my car.  I finally got all my recycling done! Yay!  Now that my car seems to be doing okay, hopefully I can get to the center once a month like I used to.  Funny thing happened when I was at the center today.  I was dropping my papers into the container and I dropped the bag in too.  The bins were emptied today so the bag fell all the way down.  It was a reusable grocery bag, so I wanted it!   I did some interesting moves to get up on the side of the bin and fish out my bag.  There were other people at the bins too. ^^; Oh well, I have my bag and I'm so happy to have 7 months of recycling out of my house!

I got a letter from a pen pal today.  It was one of the people that I wrote to hoping to become pals. She wrote me back and wants to be pals, so that is great!  I am currently printing out some really pretty stationary.  I looked up free printables and found a site with a lot of different printables.  Lined or unlined.  My favorite is a pansy print with lines. I am printing out 15 copies for use on my pen pal letters.  I've been wanting to get more stationary for letters.  Since it's a while before I can buy some, I figured I'd print some cool stuff in the meantime.  Now if I could just find some really cool Adventure Time printable stationary!  That would rock! Speaking of Adventure Time, my new pal drew an adorable picture of Jake on my envelope! :D  I thought that was so cool.  Okay, enough rambling.  I'll go for now.  I hope to post again tomorrow. :)


Whee!

I got in my walk today.  I came home and did three of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did the other two.  I then got ready and went to my car.  With fingers crossed, I started it.  It started right up! YAY!  My friend suggested that since the battery had been so low that if I drove it, to drive it for a while.  I drove around for about 35 minutes.  It seems to be doing fine.  I was a happy camper!  If it seems okay tomorrow, I'll drive to the recycle center and finish what I started yesterday.  

I would have done that today, but the bins are full.  They usually pick up and empty them on Monday, so I should be able to go. It's been nice today so I've been getting things done.  It's nice to be able to run all over my house getting my chores done while not freezing! :p  I have my bed linen in the dryer and another load of linens in the wash.  My friend gave me a huge bag of sheets and pillowcases.  They are all old and extremely soft.  I'm in love!  I've always gone to thrift stores when I needed new pillowcases because old ones are really soft. After I finish this, I need to get a few more things done.  

 


Well, there I go again!

Today, I got in my walk.  It was in the 60's and it was NICE out there!!!  A friend was coming over to work on my car, but he didn't get here until after my walk.  I came home and did four of my five workouts.  I ate lunch and then went out to see how he was doing.  He did a few things on the car and then got it running.  I asked if he'd consider driving it for a bit and I could drop off some of my piles of recycling I've been needing to recycle.  The last time I got to the recycle center was July!  I took a LOT of bags today.  As many as the car would hold.  I still quite a few bags left, but at least a lot of them are taken care of.  

Hopefully I'll be able to get my car going again tomorrow. The car had been overheating and that is why I stopped driving it last year.  He did a few things on it and I don't know what he did, but it didn't overheat once while we were out driving it around.  He actually drove around a bit too.  He even went through a drive thru and it didn't overheat.  I'm hoping that the battery is still good.  We tried to charge it up a lot today.  If if cranks tomorrow, I might try to drive it for a bit.  I hope he fixed whatever the problem was.  It would be SO NICE to be able to drive again!

I'm a bit behind on everything today.  I did my last workout after he left and got in my picture for the challenge I'm doing on Insta.  Now, I'm sitting at the computer typing this and catching up on all things interwebs. :p  I got two new penpal letters today, too! :)  I need to take tomorrow evening to catch up on writing some letters. I need to eat some dinner, wash my hair, and post my pictures to Insta.  I'm all off schedule. HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
