Wednesday night post

We went out and were going to Sonic but we passed by Red Robin and they weren't busy so we went there.  It was delicious!  I got the sandwich I got the other night from Denny's.  Grilled chicken, cheese, bacon, and bbq. Delicious!  After that, we drove back to the Goodwill on 501.  I saw a purse there yesterday and didn't buy it and wanted to go back and get it. Sadly, it was gone. :(  We went to one fo the other Goodwill stores we went to yesterday and I got some colorful envelopes (for pen pal letters). It was a little Hallmark note set, most of the notes were used, but it looks like the majority of the envelopes are there. Yay! I like to send cute envelopes with my letters.

I took a picture of the pretty sky and my food at Red Robin.  Here you go!

I am going to take a nice beach walk later and then I'm not sure what is after that.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  I am tired.


Hopefully on the mend.

I have felt a little better today, but I'm not where near back to normal.  I mainly stayed around the house and didn't do a lot.  I did some work on organizing my Starbucks cards.  I got some new ones at the beach so I wanted to get those all sorted and put in my binder.  I also went through and found that I had some ones with pin intact.  I changed all the ones that I had in my collection that weren't like that.  I also had some 'special' cards and I put them in the other binder.  I was glad to get one task done today! 

I finished one of the books I was reading too.  I just have to finish the one I started on the Kindle waaay back in May.  It's sort of meh, so it's been slow going.  I might skip it and start something else. I haven't decided yet.  I'm just not getting into the story.  I'll give it a few more pages tonight and see if it picks up.

I do have a picture to share.  On the night of the storm at the beach, I walked to the SkyWheel/Pavilion area on the beach like I had been doing and went up on the boardwalk to the Gay Dolphin. I'm pretty sure I already mentioned that, but just in case. :P . When I left the boardwalk and got back on the beach, I took this picture of the Skywheel.  I think it's my favorite picture I took of it while there:

Whoo!

So, it's just a bit after 2pm and I've already done quite a bit.  I slept pretty well. That was a relief. I did wake up several times in the night like I usually do, but it wasn't too bad.  I got up before my Fitbit went off and fixed some pizza that was leftover from last night.  I had a piece on the balcony and then I had to come in because of how hot it is out there!

I finished up in here and relaxed for a bit.  I then dressed and headed out.  I decided to hit the Boardwalk as it starts right next to our hotel. Yay!  I got on it and walked to the Sky Wheel / Old Pavilion area.  I went in the Gay Dolphin as is tradition.  I bought a couple of shirts in there.  A MB one and a Gay Dolphin one!  I got some stickers and a grab bag, too.  I went across the street to I Love Sugar, but I didn't buy anything.  I went back across and hit the boardwalk and walked down to the ocean front Starbucks.  They didn't look too busy, so I headed in.  I was able to get hte same little table I got when I discovered it in September.  I got a caramel ribbon crunch frappuccion and a trenta sized ice water.  I stayed in there and cooled off and relaxed.  I wrote in my trip journal and drank my frappuccion.  I carried my water with me. 

I walked back along the boardwalk and went in a small beachwear store and then went back out and across the street to check out a Bargain Beachwear.  After that, I went back to the boardwalk and headed back to the room. Oh wait! Before Starbucks, I went up on Pier 14 and got a smooshed penny and got to meet a cute dog.  When I was coming back to the room, I stopped at 2nd Ave Pier and got a a smooshed penny there too.  Oh, and I went in Peaches Corner and got a penny but it came out badly. Boo!

I came back to the hotel and got to meet another cute doggie (they are allowed here) and came up to the room.  I was totally roasting, so I took a cool shower and put on some fresh clothes.  That was nice.  Here are a few pictures I took today to share with you:

I'll probably do another post this evening.  Until then, enjoy these pictures. :)
 


Friday again...

So, yeah, it's Friday and a brand new month too.  I walked today and then came home and went to the gas station.  I got gas and then went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials.  I then went to Food Lion and bought way too many groceries. :p  I do have plenty of goodies though.  The granola bars I usually buy were on sale AND they started stocking the store brand version of them!  I got some of the regular ones and got some of the store brand ones. If they are just as good, I'll get those.  They were 1.50.  Not bad at all! I just hope they taste the same or close.

I just now did my stretching.  I wasn't really putting it off, I just have been so busy.   After groceries, I came home and fixed lunch after putting away all those groceries.  My store had water on sale, but they didn't have any.  I went to another location of this grocery store and they didn't have any on the shelf either.  I asked, and they had some!  They brought out a pallet of them and I got five.  They were 24 packs for 1.99. BUT  They were the special 28 bottle packs.  So, I got twenty extra bottles of water by buying five cases.  Yay!  While I waited for them to bring some out, I saw that their brand apple juice was on sale for .95.  I got two of those, too!  I love apple juice.  It's one of those things I love to have in the house but never think of when I'm in the store.

After leaving there, I ran over to Office Max to get way expensive printer ink!  I also picked up a box of their brand blue ball point pens.  I got a box some time ago and I absolutely LOVE these pens. I figured while I was there, I'd grab another box  They write so nicely.  I left there and was really close to Starbucks, but I didn't go.  I just came on home!  I did some things here and then it was time for dinner.  I ordered Chinese and went to CVS on the way.  I got some holiday cards and a few other things and then picked up my food.  I loooove tofu so that is what I got.  They fix it so delicious there!  I've been wanting some of their food for awhile  

I wrote out and paid all my bills.  After those and getting the things I needed, I'm totally broke.  Oh well.  I have plenty of groceries and I've had my one eat out meal for this month.  I'm good!  I also ordered my journal for 2018.  Every year I get a Moleskine for my journal for the year. I get a daily one that I use and it's Peanuts.  This  will be my fifth one.  The first year was a small one, the last three were the larger ones that are daily.  The first one was white, then there was another white one, the year after that was blue, this years is yellow and next years is orange/reddish.  I don't know why they keep changing the colors.  Oh well.  They are cute and I love Snoopy. ^_^

I'm not sleeping well at all lately, so I'm hoping to sleep well tonight.  Fingers crossed!


I need to stay out of Target! :P

Since I was interrupted on my trip to Target the other night, I went again today.  I got two cute Halloween washi tapes.  One of pumpkins and one of little ghosties!  So cute!  I also got a stand up pencil case, a pink 'make up' bag, a cute little milk bottle witha  jack o lantern on it and a marked down lunch bag.  I thought it would be a cute bag to carry my bujo in.  It doesn't look all that big, but it is! Here is the inside with my stuff:

I have my bujo in there, the new stand up pencil case, and a few other things and there is still plenty of room!  Here is a picture of the outside. I am using the picture from the Target site as mine was too dark.

Here is my horrible dark picture!

It's really cute and handy.  I can also use it as a lunch bag if I want. It was originally $9.99 but it was marked down to $2.98.  I couldn't pass it up!

I also got a latte in the Target Starbucks while I was there. :P

Earlier today I had to go to Kmart to pick up a prescription.  I saw this cutie when I was walking out.  I put my prescription in my car and went back to purchase him. I had $4 in points that I didn't know I had, so instead of $4.99 he was only $1.99.  I love his little curly stem!

That was my day in pictures.  I hope you enjoyed. ^_^


OMG am I tired!

I decided to walk to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area today.  It was overcast so I knew it wouldn't be horribly hot.  Unfortunately, it started to rain!  I got wet, too!  I went in the Gay Dolphin and looked around a bit. I meant to go to I Love Sugar, but I forgot! I went to the Starbucks past the Sky Wheel area and sat down for a bit.  I found two Starbucks gift cards that I didn't have so I got those. :p  I texted my friend and asked if he wanted to come get me on the way to shop.  He did.  I walked to 17 so I could get a good spot for him to pick me up.  I did that and he did.  We went to a couple of Dollar Tree stores, we also went to Tuesday Morning.   I found too much stuff in there!  We ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  Yummy!  

We went to the Goodwill at North Myrtle Beach too.  I got him to carry me by the Starbucks at North Myrtle too.  I was able to get four of the fall leaf gift cards.  She let me have them without loading them. Yay!  I also was able to get a coffee passport. YAY! :D  I was so happy.  I haven't found any stickers down here, but I have my passport. ^___^

We are back at the room and my phone is charging.  It got down to abou 44% while we were out there.  I am so tired.  I still have to do my workouts tonight, too.  Plus, talk my daily or nightly, beach walk.  I might have to rest a while before that.  It's not raining anymore.  It's still overcast, but it's not too bad.  It feels pretty nice out here on the balcony.  I am going to relax here for a while and then go in and have some coffee. 


Hello again from Myrtle Beach.

Yay, I actually slept well last night.  This would be a first night I've slept well in a long time, too.  It was nice.  I probably could have slept longer, but I'm at the beach.  I can sleep more at home! Plus, it's fun doing early morning blog posts.  I certainly don't do that at home. :P

I'm waiting for the coffee maker to brew my coffee.  I dearly miss my Keurig! I would already be drinking a cup by now! It's almost done, so I will have it shortly.  The forecast for today was for 80% rain. I expected to look out this morning and see an overcast sky.  Nope, it's sunny.  Yes, there are some clouds, but it's certainly not raining!

Coffee is now done and delicious. I went and looked out and now it's a lot more overcast, but the sun is still trying to peek through.  I was thinking of walking to the Pavilion area today, but I think I'll do it tomorrow when there is no chance of rain.  I don't want to get stuck in a downpour.

I'd like to fix a snack, but my friend is still asleep.  The microwave might wake him up.  I have a few things in my room I can eat.  I have some granola bars which is what I usually eat at home for breakfast.  They are the Nature Valley Sweet and Salty nut bars in almond.  Delicious!

I'm not sure what our plans are for today.  I think we were going to try and get to the thrift stores we missed yesterday.  My favorite Goodwill down here is the one at North Myrtle and we haven't made it there yet.  I always find something good in that one.  I love that particular one.  I'd love to hit Broadway at the Beach too, but if it's raining, he probably won't want to! I guess I'll update later on what we do end up doing!


Busy Thursday!

I went and did all my first of the month shopping.  I got groceries, and some other things I needed.  I went to Target and got some things from the Dollar spot and I found a new wallet.  It's really cute and it's funtional.  I love it.  Here is a link to the same one on Target's site:

Wallet  

They had the black, the bronze, and the blue in stock at the store.  I kept going back and forth between the black and the blue.  I finally decided on the blue.  I really like it.  It's very well made and it was a good price too!  In the Dollar spot, I found a cute little 5 page sticker book and three rolls of washi.  One is colorful paperclips and two (the same) are polka dots.  Of course, since I was in Target and they have a Starbucks, I went to Starbucks. :P  I should have waited as I plan to go to the new Starbucks location when it's open tomorrow.  Oh well, you can never have too much Starbucks. :P

I went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials, and I found some cute sticky notes and a magnetic graph notepad in the back to school section.  The sticky notes are a two pack.  One is polka dots and one is blue with rainbow and the words Dream Big.  Both are cute!  The little graph lined notepad has "Notes" on it.

I went back out later to pick up a few things I needed at the grocery store.  I stopped by CVS and found some of the Softlips cube marked down to .99 each.  I also found some orange flavored louzenges.  They were marked down to .52 and then were in cute little reusable plastic containers.  I'll reuse those for office supplies. I was about to go to check out when I checked this one aisle where they something sell random things.  They had some fitness leggings!  They were only $9.99 a pair.  I found a pair that are predominately grey with blue accents.  They are pretty nice.  I figured for the price, they couldn't be too bad.  I tried them on when I got home and they fit fine.  I can also use more workout clothes!

Speaking of working out.  I got home a little bit after I usually start to do my workouts.  I decided to do them when I got home.  I was done before time to fix my lunch.  I did that and then that is when I went to CVS, Food Lion, and Family Dollar. Oh.. and I got gas in my car too!

So, tomorrow, my only plan is to do my workouts and go to the new Starbucks. :D  I want to see how they have it set up.  I also want to see how much more seating there is.  Did I mention this new Starbucks has a drive thru? Whee! :P


Car troubles on a Sunday....

Well, technically I've been having car troubles for over two years now.  They are just worse today.  I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed.  It took awhile, but I finally got my car to start.  It's acting up worse than usual, so it didn't want to drive down to the grocery store. I got it there, though.  I debated on leaving it running, but I was afraid it would overheat. I turned it off and went in and got my groceries.  In line, I was freaking out beaause my keys weren't in my purse.  I thought I was going to have to call a friend to come get me, carry me home to get my spare keys and come back.  Scratch that.  The spare key was in my car as I had thought about leaving it running!  Luckily for me, I put my keys in the hand basket I was using so I was able to check out and got out to my car with no issues.  It started up fine and I was able to get home with no issues.  I was so happy!  I need to sit down and write pen pal lettters as I'm behind because of my beach trip.  I hope to get those done today and somehow get to the post office tomorrow to mail them and check my box for any new ones.  I might type up this batch.  I hate to send typed letters, but sometimes it's the easiest when I'm so behind!  Plus, I want to get them done so I can get them out. :)

OH! I have been using my Macbook since the beach trip and I noticed that my zero key doesn't work. Luckily there is a work around.  I can pull up an on screen keyboard and get it that way. Thank you Google! :D 

One more thing.  Did I mention that I got BACON at the store? I love me some bacon.  Bacon is life, bacon is good. lol
