Starbucks gift cards Feed

Saturday Evening post

We went out and ate at Denny's.  We were going to eat at Victoria's but they are closed on the weekend.  We forgot and went there first. D'oh!  Oh well, Denny's was delicious. Look at this chicken sammich!

It was delicious!  We left there and went to a Starbucks we missed yesterday. We've been to it twice this trip already. lol. I found a few things.  After that, I got to go to a brand new Starbucks!  I've never been to this one before so that was cool! It's really nice inside, too.  I got another tumbler. ^^;  Well, I had an offer to spend so much and get bonus stars and the tumbler and the drink put me well over the amount. Plus, I have another tumbler. I also got two cards I didn't find at the other Starbucks!

I still need to get in my beach walk and then I'm not sure what I'm doing.  I'm really tired as my sleep was horrible last night.  I hope to sleep soundly tonight. I'm not sure what we are doing tomorrow.  I still haven't made it to the pier. I have to check to make sure it's open on Sunday! If it is, I'll probably attempt it tomorrow. :)

 


Tuesday evening post

So, we went out and ate at Victoria's Country Cookin'.  It's one of our favorite places to eat down here.  We went to three Goodwills after that.  I found some goodies at all three!  My friend got a shake at Cookout and while he was in line, I walked over to Starbucks and got some Starbucks. I also was able to pick up a bunch of cards. Yay! :)  It's always nice to get new cards.

I found a Fossil wristlet at one of the Goodwill stores, I found a Starbucks tumbler at another.  It is missing its lid, but it was in good condition.  I got various other things at each place. It was a pretty good haul!  

 

We also went to Food Lion while out and go some drinks and some food and snacks for the room.  We are set for a while. We are going to order pizza later from Hungry Howie's. Yum!


A big oops!

I didn't post for two days.  I totally meant to post yesterday to make up for not posting on Tuesday and then I realized it was two minutes to midnight and it wasn't going to happen!  I'll post now though.  I received my latest Starbucks find in the mail.  This is the second time I had to order it.  The first one from another seller never came.  I couldn't put in a claim on it because with informed delivery, I thought it was here.  It wasn't. It was something else and I had already canceled my "I didn't get it claim" So, I found one from another seller and bought it.  This is the card in  question:

It's a nice one and I was happy to add it to my collection. The lovely seller sent a couple of extra cards because they didn't mail it out the same day.  Pretty cool, yet?  I have both of the extra ones, but only one of each so it will be nice to have the backups.

As for life, I haven't really done anything exciting. Life has been boring since the beach.  So, so boring. Ahhhh.


Oooh ....

Do I have some news to share tomorrow. I want to share today, but I’ll be good and wait.  It will be a good thing!  I am going to enjoy it for sure! By the way, that Starbucks card I ordered was in my daily ‘informed delivery’.  I didn’t get it though. ~_~: I hate when that happens.  At least I know it is in my city! Lol

Hopefully it will come in tomorrow’s mail or in the next week at least!  I have had a busy day getting things done and I’m tired and out of sorts. I didn’t sleep well last night at all.  I don’t know what it was, but I just couldn’t sleep. Hopefully I’ll crash hard tonight! 

I can’t wait to post tomorroooooow. :p See you then my peeps!


Dull and rainy

That was the weather here today.  It was also the local election day.  They didn't give out the "I voted" stickers because of the virus and precautions, but they did let you keep the pen! They had black ballpoint stick pens.  You used it and then you could toss it or keep it. I'm a pen person, so you know I kept it! I disinfected it and added it to my collection! 

I left there and went by Starbucks but the line was so long that I didn't even stop. I just went on home! I would have done a mobile order.  They bring it out to you, but I wasn't going to make them come out in a downpour!  I love my baristas.  I am not going to do that to them.  I'll try again another day. 

I'm waiting on a single Starbucks card that I ordered on eBay and it's not here yet. I'm beginning to think it has been lost in the mail.  I hope not, but it's been eight days since it was shipped. Hopefully, it's just delayed and will be here soon.  

I have one more item that I am anxious to get, but I'm not going to talk about it until it gets here.  It's something I've wanted to find on eBay for a long time and I finally found one at a decent price.  I'll post more when it arrives.  Hopefully SOON!


Printer ink!

My printer ink came today and I am happy with it. Usually, when I get new ink, it takes running the print head cleaning cycle many, many times. I only ran it once and did a test print and it's perfect. I'm quite happy about that. It will be nice to be able to print again.  I hope to get my pen pal letters written soon.  I meant to do that today, but I got distracted by other things and didn't get around to it.  I'm not really behind, so that is good. I'm keeping up with them pretty well.  I hope to continue to do so!

I had to run to Target for one thing today.  I went in, got it, and went to check out. Normally I would have walked all over Target, but not now.  Since I was out, I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a few things I needed and then headed home.  I figured I might as well get that done while out.  That only took a few minutes.  I passed by Starbucks and I was tempted because there wasn't a huge line, but I skipped it. Next time!  I did go to the Starbucks in Target and picked up three new cards to add to my collection.  One a Father's day, one a graduation, and the last one with the Siren on it.  I'm always happy to add to my collection.


Good mail day!

Why?  Well, three different orders came! I got an adorable pencil case that I've been eyeing forever. It was out of stock for the longest time. I got a notification that it was available and I ordered it. It came today.  I also got a nice set of Starbucks cards from eBay.  All were ones I needed that I didn't have except one. Well, there were about three that I did have but they weren't 'mint' as in they had their code uncovered.  I was able to swap those out and add all these new cards to my collection.  It was 40 cards in all so I made a good contribution to my collection!   I am going to put them all in order at some point, but for now, they are all in there as I get them.

The third item I got was a cute Evernote/Moleskine notebook. It's the smaller one.  Around 3in x 5 inches.  It's black with an Evernote green ribbon bookmark, green elastic, and it has the elephant embossed with other stuff on the front. It came with one of the Moleskine slip-on pens, too!  Also, it had the code in there for 3 months of Evernote premium! YAY!  I like this size notebook for slipping into my purse.  Plus it's Moleskine and Evernote!  It's a 'smart notebook' so it has the stickers so you can scan the pages into Evernote.  Very nifty.  I can always use a new notebook, and I love pens!  The 3 months of premium just sealed the deal!

Here is the pencil case. It's a pulldown one that can be used as a pen cup.  So cute and it's beautiful!

Isn't that pretty!  I keep my most used pens in a case with my bujo. I also have a few other pens in there that aren't used as much and a small ruler, a pencil, and a ballpoint pen. Before, I just used a basic pencil case. This is cool.  I love it!

 


Is this Friday?

Yeah, I don't know.  I finished the true crime book I was reading today.  I immediately was looking for something else to read on my Kindle.  You can search the Kindle store on it. You could on my Kindle keyboard but it was a much longer process!  I found a zombie book that looked pretty good for free. It's the first of a series, so I downloaded it.  I have read a little over half of it already! :P

Have I mentioned I love my new Kindle?  I love my new Kindle.  It's so small, even with the case and it fits nicely right into my purse.  I can carry it with me when I can go back in public again! Yay!  If the other books in this series are on Kindle Unlimited, I might just give it a go.  Three free months is a good deal!  I have noticed a lot of times when I find a zombie book that I like that I get the first in a series for free the rest are available to borrow with Kindle unlimited.  

I hit the 30,000 mark in Camp NaNo today!  It's going well.  I sit to write and it's just flowing. It's great. It's fun writing new characters. I love my zombie fiction characters, but these guys are pretty cool too.

In the mail today, I got the oldest Starbucks card in my collection.  It's actually the second one released in the US.  I was so happy to get it for a good price.  My dream card is the first one of course, but I was extremely happy to get this one!

Isn't it nice?  I loved adding this to my collection.   It's in great condition, too! Yay! I am only waiting on one package now and that is the other Kindle case I ordered.  

I haven't added one of these in a while, so!  How I'm using Evernote today:  I am copying the text of each day's Camp NaNo writing into Evernote.  That way I have a backup and I can read over it on my phone.  I find more things I need to fix this way! ;p


Whoo hoo!

I forgot to mention in yesterday's post, but yes, I wrote for NaNo yesterday.  I just finished today's word count and I'm now at 28,759 words! My plan was 20,000.  Yay!  I'm very happy with my word count.  It might not be a best-seller, but it's mine and I'm enjoying it!

Today, my Kindle case came today. It's so pretty!  I popped my Kindle in and I love it.  I ordered one more case of a different kind so I'd have a choice.  This one is a pretty blue and it looks like leather, but I'm sure it's not!  I took a picture of the one I got today to show how pretty it is.

I got one batch of my Starbucks cards today.  They are so cool!  They are from 2006 and 2007 and I love them.  I am getting quite the collection! I took a picture of those too! Here is the case and the cards.  I love them all. :)

Pretty, yes?  It fits the Kindle perfectly!


20200416_223205

Look at these beauties.  They were all from the same seller.  He had some great cards!  All in all, it was a good day for mail.  

 


Monday again...

Here it is, Monday again.  I swear I don't know what day it is half the time anymore. Thanks, COVID- 19!  I woke up a lot earlier than my alarm this morning. I got up to go to the bathroom and I was totally awake so there was no going back to bed. D'oh!  Oh well, hopefully tonight I'll get to sleep early and crash until my alarm tomorrow.  

I just finished writing for CampNaNoWriMo.  I got a little over 1700 words today.  It's going along pretty well!  I was feeling sort of meh earlier and was going to just type a few words but I kept at it and got in what I did.  That made me happy!  I also had no nose bleeds today or overnight and that made me happy too!  I was afraid I'd wake up with a mess but I didn't.  I'm being very careful!  I think the air purifier that my friend suggested it helping.  

Oh! I mentioned yesterday that I was watching one of the earliest Starbucks cards on eBay.  The seller offered me a deal today on it so I got it! :). I will be so happy to have that in my collection! It's in excellent condition and the pin is covered. Yay!  The three that I won yesterday were shipped out today.  

As for my Kindle, it is now saying it will be here Wednesday.  Better than Friday!  The only thing is the case for it hasn't shipped! lol. This is the reverse of last time.  I got the case and then the Kindle.  This time it looks like I'll get the Kindle and then the case. :p

I have something to keep it in for a few days so it will be okay.  The case was supposed to be delivered on Wednesday so it may come the same day.  I keep hoping that UPS will update and show the Kindle being delivered tomorrow.  I can hope, right?!
