I bet you can guess what that title means, eh? I just finished watching the two Sailor Moon Crystal movies. SO GOOD. Now I need two movies or a series for Sailor Stars, please. I enjoyed both movies. So good. I needed some good things today. My friend's little Cocoa had to go to the Rainbow Bridge tonight and I couldn't be there with her. I loved little Cocoa as my own. I pup sat for her many times over the years. Such a sweet pup. I miss you my little Cocoa.
So, guess who watched the entire third season of Sailor Moon Crystal last night and today? Yup, me. :p SO good. Now I have to see the movies. Ahhh. Of course,
they are on Netflix and I don't have it. I'm hoping my friend will let me watch on his. I want to see them. Crystal was so well done. I hope the movies are as good.
In other news, we did our usual small thrift today. Just Reidsville. I found a few things but my favorite is a lamp I found. It's actually a kids lamp as I found out after looking it up on Amazon, but I don't care. It's so cute! Here is the picture from Amazon:
It's just that cute! It's no longer being sold on Amazon, so I have no idea what it cost new, but I got it for $5.00! Very cute and I love the colors. If you can't tell, the lampshade is faux fur! :p My other finds were some blank labels (for making return address labels), a Starbucks mug, a sleep mask, and a pretty glass with daisies painted on it. Not a huge haul, but I fun one. I need to write a bit more as I haven't written as much as I planned today. With thrifting and watching Sailor Moon, I didn't get enough time. Oh! I did run to Starbucks for my traditional first-of-the-month visit. Now, I'm going to relax and possibly write some more. If not, it's not a huge deal as I DID write some today. One of my resolutions for 2022 was to write every day even it was just a few lines. :)
My friend texted me today and asked if I wanted to go eat. I always want to eat, so I said yes. :p We did hit one thrift store while out. I found a couple of good things. One is a mini binder pencil pouch and the other is a Golla pouch. I mentioned sometime back that I had misplaced the Golla pouch that I used on every trip to the beach. I found a replacement online and used it on the last few trips before finding my original. Well, tonight, I found another at Goodwill. It was brand new without the tags, but it still had the carabiner and the extra strap. I grabbed it and now I have a spare. Nice! The other night I did find a Golla pouch, but it was a different kind of Golla. This is the one I use as a wallet for the beach. They are so handy. Here are my two finds from tonight.
Nice finds! I decided to wait until Saturday to start up season three of Sailor Moon Crystal in case I need to binge. :p
Yup, guess what I binge-watched pretty much all day? I am now finished seasons one and two and only have season three to go. It has been SO good! I am not sure when I'll start season three, but it won't be tonight as I'd like to get a few things done. LOL! I did get my bed linen washed and my hair. I have put away the laundry I washed yesterday and I just need to put the clean bed linens back on the bed. I wrote, but it wasn't a lot, so I'm going to write a bit more. Not a lot, but at least try to get to one thousand words. I have only 500 at the moment. I wanted to get this typed up so I could post before I forget. I am going to write a bit more, put the linens back on, and then relax until bedtime. I haven't been sleeping well lately. Worst than usual, so I hope to sleep better tonight. We'll see!
So, I am finally getting around to watching Sailor Moon Crystal on Hulu. I'm only up to episode five (just finished four) and it's so pretty! I have seen the entire original series all the way through more than once and i"m enjoying reliving it with this version. The art is stunning. I'm going to stop watching for now and pick it up again tomorrow. I have some things to do before bed and need to get relaxed and ready for that. I will probably watch a bunch more tomorrow. I wish I had thought of starting it earlier today. :)
PS I just went through the tag for SMC on here and I already did start watching and then stopped for some reason? Weird. It was back in 2017! Sheesh. I know I didn't get through the first season and that might have been all there was then? Hmm....
This hasn't been the most efficient day! So, I get up and do my regular routine. After breakfast, I settle in to watch a few episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. Still, so good! I decide to take a break for a bit and re-read my book from last year and write some notes. I wanted to have everything ready when November gets here. I was working on that when my friend called. She said that her pup was having issues and needed to take her to the vet. I said I'd go with and got dressed and went up there. We took Cocoa out there and there was no cars. Weird for that place. They are usually packed! We went in and found out that Friday is the day they do surgeries and things so it would be after 4 before they could see Cocoa. The vet's office is a bit out of town, so we didn't want to drive back here and go back later. We left her and then went up the road a bit to a place where we love to eat. We got lunch and then headed back. We had to wait a while when we got back, but we finally got called back. The vet thinks she has an ulcer and gave her the stuff to treat it. We took the little sweetie home.
I planned to just drop her off and stay at their house for just a few minutes. I ended up staying several hours! I finally headed home. I had eaten lunch a lot earlier than usual. I didn't even have dinner! It's almost 11pm and I haven't had dinner and at this point, I don't think I'm going to bother. I haven't done my workouts either! It's stretch day, so that isn't too bad to miss, but I love stretches. I'll either do them after this or just do them tomorrow. I also need to do my French lesson. The reason I haven't done much since I came home, is that I got my book out and finished reading it and taking notes. I got a few ideas for potential things for the new book, so I put those in my notes. I want to have everything ready to go! I also marked up my copy pretty good. I found several typos that I missed last year on the edit. Oops! Gotta fix those. Plus I saw a few things I wanted to change. I'm really looking forward to continuing on with this story!
I set up a word count tracker in my bujo last night. I'll share a picture of it later!
So much for getting on a roll with walking. I didn't get to walk today. I was planning on it after my lunch, too! I did my usual morning routine and then had breakfast. I started on Sailor Moon Crystal. OMG it's SO GOOD. It's SO much better than the old version of season 1. I am in total love so far. I've watched 7 episodes. It's so good!
So, I was about to do my workouts, when I got a text from a friend. He said that we'd eat around 5. I knew this meant he was treating me to dinner, so I didn't have lunch at my regular time. I just had a small snack to tide me over. I usually eat 'lunch' at 4. We went and ate and then he had a few errands to run. I rode with and then he dropped me home. It was around 8 by this point, so it was dark. I wasn't going to walk in the dark! While waiting on him earlier, I had gotten in my car to just see if I could crank it. It actually cranked! When I got back home, I decided to see if I could crank it again and drive it a short distance. I was able to. YAY! I didn't drive far, but it did fine for the entire trip. I was glad to be able to do that. I won't be driving it all willy nilly, but at least I CAN drive it if I need to!
I got my book from Nano out last night and started writing some notes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to do a sequel to it for Nano this year. Unless I come up with an entirely different story, that is the plan. I need to do a Nano tracker in my bullet journal. The one I used last year was so helpful! I had the chart on one side where I put what I did each night and the other side was a blank page. On that page, I kept up with my characters. I'll probably do that again this year. I had a printable last year for tracking my progress. This year, I plan to draw mine own. I just need to go look for some inspiration online. I'll post a picture when I'm done.
I'm looking forward to Nano. Since I 'won' last year, I know I can do that this year. I plan to re-read my entire book and take notes as I go along so I don't repeat anything and so it will all be fresh. I am ready! Yes, I'll be drinking a lot of coffee during November! :P
