Starbucks on a Sunday!

Yes, you know where I went today! :p. I went to Starbucks and I went inside to see if I could get a few more cards. I got some and then found a mug I liked.  There was a tumbler the other day that I wanted, but of course, it was long gone! The other one like it that I was considering was gone too!  Their stuff is 30% off so people probably bought them for gifts. I did pick out a cute mug (no handle) with a lid.  It says it's 8oz, but it looks like it would hold more. I think it will without the lid.  I'll test it out by brewing some coffee later!  I got a grande peppermint mocha.  I ordered a grande peppermint white mocha.  This is the third time I've gotten a PW instead of a PWM. :(. They were BUSY and there were a lot of people waiting to order and a lot of people waiting on their drinks, so I wasn't going to mess that up by asking for a re-do. I drank it. I didn't enjoy it as I should have, but I wasn't going to inconvenience a whole store of people!  Oh well, hopefully, next time it will be right! The mug is very cute and I love it.  Here is a picture I took:

I should have put the mug up there too. Oh well!  I am currently sitting under the hair bonnet dryer.  I got my dishes washed, my hair washed, my bed linen washed, and I'm now relaxing for a few minutes.  My bed linen is currently in the dryer.  It was too cold for me to sit with a wet head even in my turby thingee.  I decided to get out the dryer.  I already did my weekly backup too.  Oh! I ran by Office Max while I was out and picked up a package of the card sleeves that I use to keep my cards in.  I also did my daily Zeeops mission for Munzee while out.  Now, I'm just going to sit and relax for a while.  I just put the bed linen in to dry before I came to start drying my hair, so that is going to be awhile.  I want to get a few more things done in my 2021 bujo and I want to write some on my story. I did write a few words before posting this. 411 words to be exact. I'd like to get more done.  


Coffee and a MacBook Pro :p

I used my new Starbucks mug tonight. It's so pretty!  I love new mugs, especially Starbucks ones.  It's great to find them in thrift stores.  This ons is in such great condition, too!  Here is a picture of my desk with my new Starbucks mug. That coffee didn't last long. It was delicious!

The candle is another thrift store find!  I love candles.  I have three or four pine-scented ones that I can't wait to use.  I want to finish this one first, though. The little snowman you see above the MBP is something I got at Family Dollar. He was just too cute so I had to buy him. 

We got some nasty cold rain today, but no snow or anything else that I saw. BOO!  I love snow and would love to have a nice big snow event. It probably won't happen, but I can hope!  We only got the one snow last year and was only there for one day. We'll see how it goes.  You know I'll share pictures if we do get a nice snow event.

I worked on my story last night and today and it's much better. I've added stuff, gone back and edited stuff and it's working nicely.  My main character had a very traumatic event happen to her (kidnapped, gun to her head, etc) and she is fine right now because it hasn't hit her just yet.  It's going to hit her hard pretty soon and it's going to be good!  The guy tried to actually shoot her in the head, but the gun jammed so he bashed her over the head with it instead.  Ouch!  She is going to finally react to it in my writing I plan to do next. It should be good.

In other news, I haven't done much today except try to stay warm.  I didn't go out because of the cold rain earlier and now that it's not raising, I'm not going out because I didn't put air in my tire earlier. It's too dark now to see what I'm doing and I don't feel like driving down to Sheetz and fill it at the air pump there.  I'll fill it tomorrow and maybe tomorrow afternoon or tomorrow night I can go out. I'd like to go looking for holiday lights.  That is my favorite thing about the holidays. I don't care for this time of year, but I love the lights!  I think when I do it, I'll go to Starbucks, get a venti peppermint white mocha and drink it as I drive around and look at lights. Sounds like bliss to me!


Target, Starbucks, and puzzles.

I didn't walk today.  It was sunny, but it was also pretty cold.  I just did not feel like going out and walking in the cold, so I skipped my walk.  I went out in my car in the late afternoon to Target.  I got the whiteboard and it's perfect!  I had written down the exact one I wanted from the Target website and even the aisle they were on. :P . I got that and then went to the toy section to look at puzzles.  I found a few I liked and picked out a 500 piece one that has vintage stamps on it.  It's pretty cool.  I've already started on it.  The pieces are huge! It's so much easier to work when I can see the pieces.  The puzzle, has the stamps in order by color.  I've done the green stamps and I'm working on the blue ones.  I went through the box and pulled out all the green pieces and filled those in and then I got out the blue ones. I have done part of that, but I'm done for the night. I took a picture of the board, the puzzle, and the puzzle in progress.  (I've done more since I took that picture.) Here are those pictures:

This puzzle is an unusual size. It's 20x20.  I like it though.  When I had checked out at Target, I looked over at Starbucks and saw the spring mug on display.  I had to have it. LOL . I love mugs and this one is so pretty!  It's all pretty pastels colors.  It was double star day, so that made it even better!  Luckily, my car did fine and started right up when I left.  My gas light came on, so I stopped on the way home and got gas. I did not turn it off for that. I don't like running the engine when I'm pumping gas, but I didn't want to have it not start.  I was happy to get out and get the things done.  I was almost about to come home when I realized that I meant to go by a Pokestop while out as I was on a streak and this was day seven.  I did that and came home.  I worked on the puzzle and it's pretty cool. I really love the bigger pieces. Also, the puzzle is pretty thick.  I don't have any other puzzle that is this thick.  Puzzles are so expensive now, though!  I am able to get the ones at the dollar store sometimes and they are pretty nice for $1.00.  Next time I go, I'm going to see if they have any.  I like to do puzzles of actual pictures.  I am not fond of illustration puzzles.  The ones I usually get at the dollar store are pictures.  I prefer those.  I just think they are nicer to look at.

Oh! In case you wanted to see the mug, here is a picture of that:

The lighting in my house sucks.  It looks much better in person. :P  Let me see if I can find a picture online....Nope! lol  I  guess my poorly lit picture will have to do!


Saturday shenanigans....

So, I was dressed and ready to go for my walk. My friend had asked me early if I wanted to ride with him to Reidsville.  I said, no, I better walk.  He texted me again and asked just as I was leaving.  I caved. :P  I rode with him to Reidsville.  We went to a couple of thrift stores.  We ate over there and went to Eden to a Goodwill and then Martinsville to another Goodwill! LOL!  I ended the day with three new coffee cups, another zipper case, a spiralizer, an adorable little ceramic jack o lantern, a pair of shorts, and a Dell crossword puzzle book.  My friend got it all for me. Yay!  The coffee cups are cool.  One is a mug that has the word cappucino all over it.  There is a taller polka dot cup, and a big Starbucks mug. Whee!  

We came back to town and he dropped me off so he could go home and change. I changed shoes and put on my belt bag and got my backpack.  We headed to the Riverwalk trail.  Parts of it were under water!  I took a few pictures to show how it was.  We did walk some, but not as much as we usually do because of the water.

 

Yes, I did my workouts today, too! I'm going to relax with my Kindle until bedtime. I haven't slept well lately and I want to change that tonight! 


Double stars!

It was double star day at Starbucks today.  I found this out after I went last night! lol  I saw a mug that I really wanted at the Target Starbucks when I went earlier and I decided that today was a great day to buy it.  Double star days are great.  Normally they give you two stars for every dollar you spend. On double star days, you get 4.  I try to buy any drinkware on double star days.  If there isn't any drinkware I need or want, I just get something to drink or eat. ^__^

I didn't get anything to drink today since I had a latte from the regular location yesterday.  I love my new mug. It's now my current favorite coffee mug. lol  It's very spring like.  Here are a few pictures:

 

 The lighting in my house sucks!  I did the best I could with these.  I love this mug.  It's so pretty! Just what I needed, another item for my massive Starbucks collection! LOL!
