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....
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
I can sit and write a blog post for today. It's been a long and busy one! This morning, I got up and took the dogs out and then brought them in and had some glorious coffee. I really needed it as I slept horribly last night. I enjoyed every sip! I did a few of my morning things and then had breakfast and more coffee! :P I called my friend around 1:30 to check on their progress home. They had just walked in their door! I was surprised! I jumped up, dressed, and walked the two dogs up. Then, she drove me back down to get the crate and food that was left. I rode with her to take that back and then I headed home. I was going to do my workouts right then as it was almost time to do them, but I was tired and hot so I decided I'd get them in later.
I watched Sailor Moon until time for lunch. I'm less than ten episodes from finishing! WAH! I had a delicious lunch and then I went for a walk. I walked down to Ballou Park. I went in the park and then across the street into the shopping center. I went in Dollar General to look around and then headed back. I got a cute reusable drink cup in there that looks like a cola can. It has pink lid and there are gumballs on it. I didn't really need it, but I bought it. I thought it was on sale for 70% off, but it only rang up as 25% off. I declined at first, but she tossed it in a hand basket to take back later and I felt bad for it so I bought it! LOL Yeah, I'm weird. In any case, it's now sitting here on my desk until I decide if I'm going to use it for drinks or for something else!
I ran out of the creamer that I really like today. It's International Delight brand and the flavor is Caramel Macchiato. When I bought it this month, I had a coupon for two of their products. I got one of those and one of the one touch latte cans. I also saw the store brand of the caramel creamer and decided to try it. I did and it's almost exactly the same at the ID one. It's good and a bit cheaper. That is always a good thing!
I came back from my walk and relaxed a bit. It was really hot as I walked pretty fast. I had my dinner and then watched some shows on HLN. I did my workouts. I washed two loads of clothes today and both are put away. I also took a bath and washed my hair. I'm all caught up on everything I needed to do today. Go me! Now, I'm just going to grab the Kindle and read until bedtime. I hope to sleep well tonight. I'll have the bed to myself, so that might help. You wouldn't think two little dogs would take up SO MUCH space! LOL!
Yes, it's Monday again. I did my usual today. I did my workouts, watched Sailor Moon, and went to the post office. I actually had two letters from pen pals. Yay! I might just have to go to Starbucks on Wednesday night and write letters. We'll see. Right now I'm going to watch more Sailor Moon S and then do some work in my bujo!
I made it to Sailor Moon S today. I've only watched the first two episodes so far. I am going to watch more after I type this up. I found out that the drink I got from Starbucks was actually a cinnamon almond milk macchiato. I contacted Starbucks and they told me. It wasn't bad, but I prefer my Cascara latte! Next time I'll be sure to check it before I get home. I've never had an issue with the wrong drink before... wait.. once. I got a peppermint white mocha a long time ago and they gave me a peppermint mocha instead. That was fixed asap! My favorite barista was still there then. I miss her! She was so sweet.
So, if you like cinammon, give that drink a try. It had a nice fall feel to it. I want to try the new Maple Pecan latte. I love maple and I love pecans. It sounds so good. I just don't want to become addicted to it and only be able to get it seasonally like the PSL peeps! Maybe I can catch them on a night when they have samples.
This blog post brought to you by the letter S!
No, not really, but I think I set a record for myself today! :P I had six cups of coffee, and one of those was Starbucks! I had no plans to go to Starbucks today. I had planned to stay in and relax while doing my regular Sunday chores. I was in the middle of an episode of Sailor Moon when my phone rang. It was my friend that I'm always trying to get to go to Starbucks with me. She wanted to go to Starbucks! LOL! I couldn't say no when I ask her all the time, now could I? :P We went and I got a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie. :p It was good.
I did my workouts today, washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed, washed my hair, washed another load of clothes. Those I need to check on and see if they are ready for the dryer. I also ran out to the post office. I only got one letter. Phooey! I plan to write my letters tomorrow and get them all caught up. I'll try to mail them tomorrow too, if possible. I am so behind on everything! Sheesh!
OH! I watched all four of the new Adventure Time episodes on PS VUE. I have Adventure Time as one of my favorite shows so it saved all four of the new episodes. They were all good, but they just left me wanting more. They need to put out episodes in a timely manner. I know there isn't a lot of the show left, but I want to see what I can.
So, today has been a regular day. I got up and did my usual morning things. Coffee was involved. :p After breakfast, I started watching more Sailor Moon. I'm now more than half way through season 1. I just finished episode 26. Makoto has arrived and Minako isn't too far behind! I've been enjoying it. I even mowed some on the lawn and did my workouts. I watched an episode of Cold Case Files on Youtube too. I didn't go anywhere today. I decided after going out yesterday, I would just spend the day here today. Plus, I had plenty to watch. I'm so ready to get to season 2. Everything really starts rolling then. I just hope Hulu keeps it on until I can get through all 200 episodes! I still have all my fansubs, but like I said, the quality on some of them is horrible. Plus it's VHS! :P
I am going to do my French lesson on Duolingo, and then I think I'll settle in and relax a bit before bedtime. I think I'll save watching more episodes until tomorrow. I really need to write pen pal letters. I planned to do that tonight, but I got so wrapped up in Sailor Moon, I sort of let it slip. Oops! Well, I'll try to get them written tomorrow and then get them mailed. I need to check my box for new ones. I sent myself a post card while at the beach and I sent it to my po box and not my home address, so I should have at least that waiting for me. ^_^
So, I rode with a friend of mine to Greensboro today for her doctor's appointment. Her son went too. He has been watching Sailor Moon and it made me want to re-watch it. I saw that it was on Hulu, so I have started over from the beginning. The quality is so good. I'm an old time fan from the fan sub days. The quality of some of those tapes was SO BAD. This is such a treat being able to watch it like this! I am up to the episode before Ami-chan shows up. I'm waiting on Rei because she is and always has been my favorite. I'm enjoying watching it. I had to figure out how to make the subtitles show on Hulu, but I did and now I'm good!
As for Starbucks, my friend who had to go to Greensboro asked me yesterday if I'd go. I said yes, if I got to go to a Starbucks. LOL I went to one I've been to before but it's been a long time. I will be able to add it to my tracker. They also had stickers! The barista give me eight of them. :D These are a lot smaller than the one I got at the beach and they are clear around the Siren. I put four on my Macbook. :P I'll use the others for bullet journalling. Speaking of my bujo, I didn't get around to making my beach trip page last night. I think I'm going to wait until I get some ink for my printer so I can put some of the pictures I took on my trip in there. I think that would be cool.
While in Greensboro, we went to P.F. Chang's for lunch. I had an email that had, 'buy one entree, get one free' so we did that. I was broke, so that was the only way I could have eaten. Well, she was going to get my lunch for going with her, but I told her about the deal I had to save her some money. ^_^ I told her since I saved her money on lunch she should have bought my Starbucks! LOL!
It was a full day. I came home and watched some Night Court and then I looked for Sailor Moon and found it on Hulu. They have all 200 episodes. I just hope they don't take them off before I can re-watch the entire show. It's been a lot of years since I've seen it all. It's still good, but there are some things that annoy me. They translate Mamo saying "bun head" instead of "dumpling head". Dumpling head just sounds better! LOL Other than that, it's been great. I know the translations are going to be different as the ones I watched were all fan done. The quality of the episodes makes up for it. After I finish the original Sailor Moon, I'll watch Crystal!
BTW, here is a picture of my Macbook with all it's goodies!
