Munzee and stuff....

Sorry about last night.  It was late and I was feeling pretty cruddy so I didn't post. I even went to bed a bit early, too!  Today, I had to run to my friend's house to pick up a package he had arriving today.  I did that and while I was out, I did my daily Zeeops mission for Munzee.  I went to the parking lot of the 'new' YMCA and captured a Munzee.  I took a few pictures while there, too:

The YMCA is right by the Riverwalk trail! I have walked past it many times, but I've never driven into their parking lot. It's a nice area.  I had to take a few pictures while I was there! My friend came to pick up his package and told me he had to drive to Greensboro to pick up an item there. I tagged along for the ride.  That was fun and now I'm back home relaxing a bit before bedtime.  I wrote very little today, but I wrote quite a bit yesterday so it all evens out. Besides, this isn't my NaNo work, it's just a story I'm working on. :)


Cool!

I went out today and took a few pictures down on this side of the River at the Riverwalk.  I took pictures on the trail there and the little dock that is where the Worsham Street bridge used to be. I created a photo album of the pictures I took and uploaded it to Google photos to share.  I figured it would be the best way to share a lot of photos.  I'll try to do this from now on when I have a lot of photos. :) I hope you enjoy! I also deployed a Munzee while out. I would have gone more but it was HOT!!!

Sunday again....

Yes, I know I haven't posted in several days. I just haven't had the energy to post anything.  I got out today though.  I went to a few places and I stopped by a dam on the Riverwalk and took a few pictures.  I didn't go on the trail, though. I just got a few pictures to share.  I hope to get back to my daily posts here tomorrow, but we'll see how it goes. For now, enjoy these pictures I took!

The dam.  It's higher than usual because we had some rain recently.

The Union Street bridge that is near the dam.  I took the dam picture and this from the same spot.  I just turned in different directions to take them.

Sunday and an apology

Sorry for not p0sting yesterday.  I meant to and then it got late and I never did. My friend and I rode to a few places to look at cars and we were able to go to the Goodwill in Martinsville.  We haven't been in there since before COVID, so that was nice.  I found a Dunkin Donuts mug.  As you know, I'm a Starbucks girl to the core, but this was a nice mug.  It was from 2013 and it still had the sticker on the bottom!  It is in excellent/new condition and it was a whole twenty cents!  I also found a Keurig metal rack that fits washi! Of course I have containers for my washi, so I'll eventually use this for something else.

I went out to replace some of my Munzees today that needed maintenance.  I replaced two, I archived three (these are in hard to get to locations and I figured it wouldn't be any need to replace them. I only have on more I need to replace now.  It's at a picnic shelter in Dan Daniel's park. I went there today but there were people at the shelter, so I didn't bother them.  I drove to Angler's park and replaced that one.  That was the one that was the furthest away and I figured it would be a while before I got to it.  Nope, it was fixed today!  The other one was never the River on the other side and I replaced that one too and deployed a new one nearby.

I also got one virtual Munzee at another park in the city.  I hadn't been to that park in a long time.  It has changed quite a bit. I didn't get out there, I just captured it in the car. :p. 

I took some pictures down where I fixed one of my Munzees. It is near a dock where a bridge used to stand.  I loved that bridge and still miss it!   They have a plaque and an arch near the street and you can walk down to the dock.

This last one is from the path near the dock. You can see the arch in the picture at the top of the steps.  (there are two sets of steps)

 


One more Munzee post. :p

I went out and did some Munzee playing today!  I looked at my list of deployed ones and found that I have several that need to be replaced.  I was able to replace one. I'll get the others on another day.  I deployed five new ones!  That was fun.  I really like the ones they sent.  They are lightly laminated and they should hold up a lot better than the ones I do myself.  I ordered some more. I still have some, but I can get a sheet of 50 for $6 so I did that. It will take me a long time to use that many so they will last forever.

It was fun to go out and do it.  It was a deploy trip, but I did find one that I haven't captured before, so I did that.  I was going to deploy one there but it said there was one close by, I found it and captured it.  I also deployed my very first virtual one. :). Luckily, it wasn't too hot out there.  My car didn't give me any issues.

Since I was still out and about, I got lunch while out and ate in the shade of these trees and bushes:

It was nice to sit there and eat. This is a parking lot that is right at a part of the Riverwalk trail.  I noticed a sign nearby so when I finished eating, I deployed a Munzee there!  It was a nice afternoon.  I came home and took the trash out to the can and then I carried branches to the street.  I had been meaning to put them out forever and finally remembered today.  They pick up yard debris on Monday which is the same day they pick up trash.  I don't like to put it out there too many days ahead of time.

I have my bed linen in the dryer, the clothes I washed yesterday are now put away, and my hair is nice and clean.  All I have to do now is to put the linens back on the bed and decide what I'm fixing for dinner. I'm going to rest and read for a bit and wait for my linens to dry. :)


Walking on Wednesday!

It rained a bit today and it was a little chilly at times.  My friend and I walked anyway!  We had planned to walk today and it was a little up in the air because of the rain, but it had stopped and cleared off for the most part.  We went to the trail and walked.  It was a bit cool and I should have carried my hoodie, but I didn't. It was okay though.  We got in a nice walk.

While I was waiting for my friend to pick me up, I took a picture of the sky over my house.  I love the way the green trees look against the sky. So pretty!

Walking and other things

I was planning on staying in today and getting stuff done.  Well, I did get a lot done, but I also went for a walk along the Riverwalk Trail!  I found a new little creek area off the trail.  I took pictures to share:

This is a pretty little area.  I didn't do across the creek, but it looks as if the trail goes on past that.  I might text that out someday.  I have my bed linen in the dryer and I'm just waiting to put it back on the bed and then I'm going to crash on it and read until bedtime. I'm one tired puppy!


Whoo boy!

So, let's get this day done please!  I had a hard time sleeping because it was too warm in my room.  I turned on my fan and that helped.  This afternoon, I was sitting in my room and I was hot.  I looked up the weather on Google and it was in the 80's.  Well no wonder I felt warm!  I decided it was time to put my air conditioner in the window for the season.  It will make sleeping so much easier tonight.

I was thinking about putting that in the window while I was working a puzzle.  My friend texted and wanted to walk around 5 pm.  I agreed, so I got my lunch and then got the air conditioner in the window and had a little time to relax before he came.  We went to our new regular part of the trail and walked.  The sky got a little overcast and that helped make the walk a little cooler.  After we walked, he wanted a milkshake so we went to get that.  I got a soda and then we rode around a bit.  He asked if it were too early for me to eat.  I said, Nope! LOL. It's never too early. :p

We were going to Sonic, but they have now taped up all the drive-up bays and you can only go through the drive-thru and it was backed up a lot.  He decided to go to the barbeque place we recently tried.  They have a drive-thru and we got food there.  Delicious!  He ate here and then headed home.  After he left, I took my bed apart and then tightened everything back up and put the bed back together.  DOH!!!!!!  I just realized I forgot to measure the frame while I had it apart. ~_~;;; AHHHHHH. Hopefully this time my tightening will last for a while.  We'll hope so anyway.

So, let's share a picture of the puzzle in progress and one picture from the trail. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

Puzzle and a walk

I started a new puzzle today and it's the same brand as the last two so it has the tiny pieces. Ah!  I got a bit done and then my friend and I went for a walk on the Riverwalk trail.  We ate while we were out, too.  After I got home, I did more of the puzzle.  It's not bad at all.  I should finish it tomorrow easily.

My replacement notebooks for my Foxy Fix came in today and they are absolutely perfect! They are the perfect size and they are nice quality too!  The paper is thick and it's lined nicely, too.  It had eight inserts so I'll have plenty for a while.  I now get to decorate the covers.  That will be fun to do. I already have some ideas.  I am glad I found these notebooks. I put them back on my wishlist so I can re-order them in the future. Here are some pictures.

Here is the first notebook inside the Foxy.  The little card in the pocket came with my order from Paper Issues. It's so cute!
