Good mail day!

I got my washi today and it's so pretty!  I also got my pen loop for my Leuchtturm.  My purse still hasn't shipped. Boo!  Here is some pictures of today's goodies:

The Starbucks cup didn't come in the mail. I went over there for that. :P . I played Starbucks for Life as I usually do. I won a bunch of stars and a I even won a free bakery item.  The coupon was running out today, so I went over there and got a cookie.  I also got a cascara latte while I was there.  They are almost out of cascara syrup.  Boo!  I'll miss it.  Hopefully they'd bring it back again.  


Welcome 2019

It is now 2019 and it was in the 60's today!  It was very nice outside for my walk.  Such a big change from the rain yesterday.  I enjoyed my walk quite a bit!  It was great to walk in short sleeves. ^_^

In other news, I ended 2018 by going to Starbucks and I started 2019 with the same. :P . My friend who never wants to go when I ask wanted to go tonight.  I hadn't really planned to go today, but when she agreed, I couldn't say no. lol 

I never found a way to watch ABC last night. :( . I had to watch a stream of NBC and I didn't know that they didn't show the ball drop.  The live stream was also a few minutes behind, so I actually saw it hit midnight before they showed it.  I was not happy.  Hopefully, ABC will get with the program and get local streaming in my area by next year!

 


Goodbye 2018

It's hard to believe that this year is almost over.  Just a few more hours and we get to start anew.  It was overcast when I left for my walk today.  The weather apps said it would not rain during my walk.  Well, my weather apps, LIED.  As soon as my feet hit the street and I started up my street, it began raining. It rained for almost my entire walk.  I was not amused!  I was quite happy when I got home.  I had to put my clothes in the dryer.  I also put my shoes on either side of the heater to dry them out, too.  

I mailed off letters during today's walk and then I had one more I needed to mail after I got home.  I decided to mail that and went to Starbucks while I was out. Yay! It was delicious, of course. :p  I wanted to end the year right.

With my walk and my trip to Starbucks, I also took down my Yule tree.  It took longer than it should because all the lights decided they wanted to get tangled up. lol . I was finally able to get them all off and packed away.  Everything is back in the boxes for next year.  I am going to relax the rest of the evening and get ready to watch the ball drop on TV.  I  was able to stream that last year, so I'm hoping I'll be able to again this year. It won't feel like New Year's Eve without that!

Back at it!

So, I got up today and I still didn't feel great, but I got my butt up and went for my walk.  I was glad to get back to it.  I got it in and then came home and relaxed for a bit.  I washed my hair and my bed linen.  I just have to put the linens back on the bed.  I thought about going to Starbucks, but I never got motivated enough to get up and go! I still could go as it's early, but I don't know.  Maybe I can run over and hit the drive thru?  I am not sure I even feel like getting dressed to go out! 

I still haven't taken down my tree. I wish I had the room to store it like it is.  I'd just wrap it in plastic wrap and call it good until next year. LOL!  I hope all my new lights still work next year, too.  I might run to Target next week and see if they have any of the blue lights still available.  I'm sure they'll be on sale.  I could buy a few boxes as backups.

 


Ouch ouch ouch

My poor head is killing me at the moment.  I have the headache from hell.  I didn't sleep well last night and then woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston today and go to a pawn shop, a Goodwill, and to eat.  He asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go.  He would buy lunch and get me some things at the thrift store.  I went.  I usually find a lot of things at that particular Goodwill, but I only found a little bag with various office supplies and a pair of black flats.  I have been needing a pair of nice black flats. These look pretty much brand new, too.  They are comfy and I like them a lot. 

We ate at Dini's brothers. It's a pizza / sub place in SoBo.  We split a pizza and it was good.  When we got back to Danville, we went to the Goodwill here.  I found more goodies.  A journal, a digital camera kit, a Spirograph with all the pieces but one, some cute stationery, and two Starbucks tumblers!! They are from 2007 and they are both grande size.  The lid on one of them wasn't the right lid, but the other one's lid fit on both, and I wouldn't be using both at the same time anyway!  I couldn't pass them up for .99 each!

Oh, I also got a caramel macchiato at the McDonald's as we were leaving SoBo.  It was pretty tasty, too! I was hoping to spot some extra cases for my iPad Mini at the thrift stores. I have seen them before.  I like having a variety of cases. lol 

My Fossil canvas purse came today and it's so cute.  I'll have to do another post after this and do a picture post of some of today's goodies. I would do it with this post, but I'm sitting under the hair bonnet hair dryer so it's not possible at the moment. I took several pictures of the Starbucks tumblers, but I haven't taken one of the purse yet.  It's khaki colored canvas and it has a cute yellow floral interior.  It's a small bag, but it holds everything I need.  The front zipper pocket can be used as a wallet if you want.  I like it.  I'll post my haul in a bit after my hair is dry.  The heat from the dryer is very soothing to my painful head!

Another thing I needed came in today's mail.  My closet light went out recently.  To turn it on and off, you pull a string from the light bulb adapter thingee.  My adapter thingee quit working so I ordered one from Amazon. It's nice to have light in my closet again. I had tried one of those tap lights, but it wasn't nearly enough light.  I am glad to have this fixed again.

Now, I just need to finish drying my hair and I'll post some of my goodies. :)


Yay for Starbucks!

Guess who got Starbucks today?  Yes, that would be me!  I had to run out for an errand this evening and I decided to run over to Starbucks.  I went to the drive thru and got my favorite. A Cascara latte.  It was delicious!  It has been way too long since I went to Starbucks.  

I noticed that there were plenty of seats inside, too! Figures.  If I had gone and planned to stay, there would have been no where at all to sit.  Oh well.  I still need to get over there and go in before Christmas is over so I can get the rest of the cards to add to my collection.  

 


Cabin fever!!!!

So, this is another day with no walk.  I decided to go out for a bit in the car. I just needed to get out for a bit.  I drove down my regular walking route to see how the sidewalks were.  It was about 50/50.  Some areas were completely clear and others were not.  It’s supposed to rain here tomorrow, so that will probably speed up the procsss.  At least I hope so!

While I was out, I picked up my presecription from the pharmacy. I thought about going to Starbucks, but I didn’t.  Maybe next time I go out.  Who knows? Today was the first day the mail carrier has delivered mail all week!  I had a package two days ago but it was just delivered today.  Sheesh.  I cleaned the walk off and everything too.  Oh well.

I’ve been watching The Addams Family on Hulu.  It’s such fun.  I’ve seen it all before, or course, but it’s fun to be able to watch all the episodes in order. I’m currently on the one where they try to teach Lurch to dance so he can go to the butler’s ball. ^_^

 


It shipped! Whee!

I got my confirmation today that the replacement iPad Mini shipped! Let's hope this one is perfect and works and lasts for many, many years.  I am so ready to get it and set it up.  I think I've found a way to get my app to the new iPad.  I just have to have it with me to try it. I've been researching.  If I can get that one app over, I'll be a very happy camper!  I also found the way to see what apps I've ever downloaded.  I know there have been times when I got some free apps via Starbucks.  They used to give cards out in stores that you could get a free song or app. I wish they still did that. I got some great apps that way.  Some of them that I download, may have not been compatible with my iPod since the iOs on it is so old. I'm sure anything that I find that I want to use will be okay with the iPad because it will upgrade to iOS 12.  I know it will because I did that with the one I sent back.

I walked today and it was a bit cooler than yesterday.  There were no short sleeves today!  It was sunny for the most part though. It did cloud up a little, but it didn't rain, so that was fine.  I was glad to get home though as I was tired and a bit chilly.  It was after 4 am when I finally got to sleep last night and it's affected me all day.  This morning, I was trying to make coffee without putting coffee in the Keurig. LOL!  

This evening, I did my January habit tracker in my new bullet journal.  I also did the first week of 2019 in there.  I have printed out a calendar to trace and make the other side of my January habit tracker page.  I want to get it set up. I am ready to move into it now! LOL . I love it already.  


BRRRRRR Again!

Wowee was it cold today on my walk.  I was so glad to get home and get some hot coffee in my body. lol . I meant to attempt to go to Starbucks tonight and stay awhile.  I decided not to since it was so cold.  I did not want to get over there and have my car not want to start up as cold as it was.

I'm almost wishing for a rainy day so I can stay home and stay warm. :P I also have had another one of my hold books come available recently.  I have a feeling, the third book on my hold list is going to be available soon.  It's the one I want to read the most. It's the new Stephen King book Elevation. I've had that on hold since before it was released.  I've heard it's unusually short for a Stephen King book, so when it is available, it will be a quick read.  I just wish the other people who are before me would hurry up and read it. 

At the moment, I'm reading the book about the Golden State Killer aka East Area Rapist that was caught recently.  This is a book written by a lady that wanted to find the identity of the killer.  Sadly, she died before he was caught.  It's quite a good book so far.  The next book on my Kindle is Marilla of Green Gables.  It's a story that was written about Marilla from the Anne of Green Gables books. It's supposed to be about her early life.  I think I'm going to enjoy it as I've heard from other Anne fans that it's a good 'addition' to the series.

PS I wrote 15 more words for Nano. :p I'm going to get that 30 day badge!
