Starbucks on a Sunday

I've used that as a title before. :p  So, it's the first of the month. I went to Starbucks. I got a tall flat white and it was pretty damn delicious.  Our local Starbucks is out of a lot of things.  I was trying to figure out what to get before I went. I settled on the flat white. It was very good!  I got to start in the monthly digital planner and it's so nice.  I also bought seven digital sticker sets from DPCDigitals! :) I have put a bunch of them in GoodNotes but I have more to go.  I'm really liking the digital planner I got from them.  I am pretty sure I'm getting one of their dated 2022 planners.  I think I'm going totally digital for 2022. I can even make a digital bullet journal. That will be fun!

Doesn't that look delicious? So much foamy goodness.


I'm not dead!

I am so sorry for not posting in so long. I don't know how the time got away from me. I was thinking it had only been about a week, it's been almost two! D'oh!  There have been a few thrift trips since I last posted.  I found some goodies as always.  I realized my Starbucks tumbler collection was growing at an incredible rate, so i decided to do something about it!  I have a china hutch in a room in my house that was full of miscellaneious dishes.  I cleared those out and it now holds the majority of my Starbucks tumbler collection. There are still about 10 that I didn't put in.  I also did put in mugs or ceramic tumblers.  It looks nice and there is plenty of room for more. I put the French press in there, too! (The Starbucks one of course)

I have been writing on my Camp NaNoWriMo work and have long since past the 50,000 mark.  I am trying to decide what I'm going to do for actual NaNoWriMo in November. I have been re-reading some of the last zombie book I wrote and I may right the next book in that series. I just have to figure out what happens next. 

Again, sorry for not posting in so long. I have been enjoying the heck out of digital planning and I adore eerything I have gotten from DPCDigitals. Either the freebies or the things I've bought.  I get to use my one month planner I bought from them on Sunday. Yay!  I will try to remember to put a link to them in my links on the sidebar.  If you are new to Digital planning, they are the best. You can get so many freebies and their stuff in their Etsy store is very reasonably priced. Check them out!


Thrift and Walk!

We went back over to Reidsville today and got in two thrift stores and then went to walk on the walking trail at the old Chinqua Penn estate.  I took quite a few pictures to share. I hope to upload them to a Google photo album tomorrow.  For now, here is a preview!

PXL_20210715_213132305.MP

It's a pretty trail. We enjoyed it and would like to go again, but I want to wait until it's a bit cooler out.  It was so hot.  The shady parts weren't too bad, though! I found another Starbucks mug in Goodwill and a nice whiteboard/corkboard too.


Friday Thrift

My friend and I went thrifting today. We went to Reidsville, Mayodan, and Walkertown.  I didn't get a lot, but I did get some goodies.  I got an old Hangman board game with Vincent Price on the box. Very cool!  I love adding 'new' board games to my collection. I found a Starbucks tumbler in two different stores.  That is four I've gotten this past week!  I'm always happy to find those. The ones today, one if from 2007 and one is from the past 2020 holiday collection!  I found a small pink Caboodle that I bought for $2. I still have two of my Caboodles from back in the day. They are great for storing things.  The biggest one that I already have is my sewing kit. It has spools of thread, buttons, needles, and all sorts of sewing supplies in it. Very handy, indeed.


Trail and thrift!

My friend texted me today and asked if I wanted to do our thrifting in Reidsville, NC only. I did, so we headed over there after he got off work.  We went to the Salvation Army store after eating at Bojangles (yummy).  I found some notecards, some tea lights, some little sequin Christmas patch thingees, Big Boggle (complete!) and I think that was all. At Goodwill, I found two Starbucks tumblers, some dishwashing gloves (hey they were cheap and brand new in the package), and, a Life board game. Not any Life board game, a Simpsons-based one! :D  It's complete except for one of the little cars. Everything else is there.  Very cool find! I snatched that right up and it definitely went home with me! :) It was a good haul.

So, after we left there, we decided to go look for a trail that we have been meaning to go look for.  We went to find it and did! Since we were there, we walked on it just a little bit.  It looks pretty nice from what we saw of it. I picked up a brochure and the entire trail is only 1.7 miles. It's a loop.  I want to go back and walk the entire thing. I just want to go in the correct clothes and shoes for walking. Speaking of shoes, I forgot that I found a nice pair of New Balance in Goodwill. I knew I was forgetting something! They are a size bigger than my usual size, but they fit fine and they are comfy!  They are going to replace my daily shoes that are getting so worn out. 

Here are a couple of pictures I took on the trail:

Pup, day two!

So I still have the pup.  This little rotten girl got hand-fed today by me, twice. Rotten! lol, I ran out while she was sleeping this afternoon and got some Starbucks! Starting the month off right. :) I didn't do much else today.  I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo with the story I'm currently working on. I WILL be doing NaNoWriMo this year. It's either going to be the skater store (book 3) or the zombie epic (book 5) OR something totally new. I have no idea which! I'm glad I have a while.  I am seriously considering getting Scrivener on my iPad. I haven't decided yet because just how often would I write there?  I do have a Bluetooth keyboard so it wouldn't be hard to do. I'll think on it. For now, I'm going to relax a bit and then take the pup out one more time tonight.  I didn't sleep well last night, so I'm hoping to make up for that tonight!


Thursday Evening Post

We went out and went to a few places.  We drove down to Pawley's Island! I've never been, so that was pretty cool. We went to a GW boutique (Goodwill only higher-end items), a Salvation Army, and a Tuesday Morning. I got stuff in all three. :p  We ate in Murrell's Inlet on the way back up at a place called Judy Boone's kitchen. It was pretty good, too!  We came back up to Myrtle and went to the Tuesday Morning here.  We have been back to the room for some time now.  I have sat down and paid bills, and now I'm typing this up.  My phone is currently on charge.  We went by a Starbucks in Pawley's Island and my friend stopped so I could go in! This was right before we were headed to eat, so I didn't get a drink, but I got more cards I needed and a new tumbler. :p  Oops. Hee hee.

That is the Starbucks we stopped by. Very nice location and I have a new one to add to my list! Joy!


Wednesday evening post

Hello there! We just got back to the room about an hour ago.  We got a lot of thrifting done.  We've been to five Goodwill stores, one Salvation Army, one beach store, and Tuesday Morning!  I didn't get a lot at the Goodwill stores. I got a little metal sign and a pouch in the one at NMB.  At the one off 501 I got a tote bag with a Corgi on it. I also got a clock radio in there for the room.  The room doesn't have one and this one is small and cute so it works and I can bring it on trips since it's small.

The Conway Goodwill I bought some shoes, and then at the one on Loyola, I got a Jack O' lantern and something else but I cannot remember what it was! Umm... yeah, no clue! I just remembered! It was a vintage radio/cassette player (knockoff Walkman)  The last Goodwill we went to at Murrell's Inlet, I got a vintage Rook card game.  I didn't buy anything at the Salvation Army.  I passed up on a Fossil bag, too! It was one that I wouldn't carry, so I was easy to pass up.

At Tuesday morning, I got a little TN, a two-pack of notebooks, and a pack of neon/pastel fineliners.  Everything was on clearance too! :) At the beachwear store (Beach Life) I got a shirt and a sticker. My friend got me another shirt so I got two. Yay!  After we left the Loyola GW, we went to the Cookout that is down the road. While my friend went through the drive-thru line, I walked over to Starbucks! I got a pretty rainbow tumbler and some cards I didn't have.  I also got a peppermint white mocha. Yummy! Here are some pictures that aren't just beach. :p

As you can see in the first picture, it got really dark in Conway.  I took this picture.  The second picture was of the waterfall at one of the miniature gofl places down here. I thought it was pretty. 


Tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, we are heading to Myrtle Beach tomorrow! :D  I just finished packing! LOL, I am usually done way before this. I have my things all ready. I only have to put a few things from the kitchen in a bag (coffee, creamer, etc.) I'm ready to leave now! :p  I wrote a bunch today and yesterday and I plan to write some more before putting my laptop in the bag to carry it. I always put my laptop in my suitcase with the electronics, but this laptop is too big so I'm going to use the laptop backpack that I bought at Office Max.  I think I got everything I need for the trip ready to go. I still can't decide on which bag to carry. I want to carry one of my cute little Fossil bags but I want to make sure it's the right size.  I don't like carrying my regular bag with me to the beach.  I usually pick one big enough for my trip journal to fit, but I am thinking if we are going into a restaurant, I can just carry it in with me.  I wouldn't carry it in a store.  The little Fossil bag I got last summer is so cute and I've not been able to use it because it was smaller than I thought it would be. I think I'll probably use that and just carry the trip journal.  Ah, I wish we could go tonight! I'm ready. I wasn't this morning, but nows that everything is packed, It's a go! I will try to post several times a day from the beach as I usually do.  The room we have is a two-room, room.  In other words, there is a bed, desk, dresser, tv, closet, and SINK! in the first part, then a kitchen and bathroom in the middle, and a two-bed bedroom with all the things in the first room (except the sink) and a table and chairs.  I can set my MacBook up at the desk.  I will try to do at least two posts a day and possibly three.  I will be sharing beach pictures and I'll try to take pictures of some other interesting things as I go. I'll also be posted to Insta. :) I have not used any money on my Starbucks card all month and I have several freebies so I'm set on that too.  I just finished the kitchen stuff, I've laid out my clothes, I just need to load this laptop in it's bag and load my friend's car.  No Goontz this trip. I drove him for a bit tonight so he wouldn't feel left out. :p


A week ago....

Yes, the last time I posted was a week ago. Sorry about that! I have NOT found my Golla pouch! I have looked several times but so far, it's nowhere to be found. It will show up eventually. I thought I'd check on eBay to see if I could find one.  I found someone selling the exact same pouch in a different color scheme.  Mine is dark grey on the outside and purple on the inside. The one I found on ebay is light grey on the outside and orange on the inside. It's brand new, too!  I ordered it and the estimate was from May 28 - June 2. I was hoping earlier since I bought it for the beach!  Luckily, it came on Wednesday!  I have it and it's ready to go to the beach.  Wednesday was also a busy day. My friend purchased a new car that for himself. It's a 2018 and it's very nice. He has been wanting to get a newer car so we don't put so many miles on Goontz. It will be a thrift trip and beach trip vehicle. He'll keep his old vehicle for work and other stuff.  It's very nice and it's comfy to ride in.  He got it Wednesday and we rode up to Nathalie where I got my title transfer and tags for Goontz back in July. We had to wait a long time then, Wednesday we didn't have to wait at all! It was crazy, but nice!

We came back to Danville and then he wanted to drive the car a bit more so he suggested driving to Reidsville. Since we had been holding off on thrift trips because of the upcoming beach trip, this was a great idea! We ate at Pete's and went to the Goodwill.  I got the cutest little Starbucks cup. It's 3 oz and adorable. I am very happy to add it to my collection.  Here is that and the new pouch. The color is so pretty and bright. I think it's very beachy! :)

I love my new pouch!  It's so pretty! The little Starbucks cup is adorable.  So tiny.  Sorry again for such a long time between posts. I'm sure I'll make up for it during the beach trip! I'll try my best to post again tomorrow and Sunday, too.  We leave for the beach on Monday.


Friday and thrifting

My friend and I went for our Friday thrift trip today. We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, Mayodan, and Martinsville.  All those places and I didn't get a lot.  At the Salvation Army in Reidsville, I got a flash drive new in the package for $3. I didn't get anything at the Reidsville Goodwill.  We went to Walkertown and I found a Starbucks tumbler that I wanted. Sadly while we were in there their power went out and they would not ring up anyone. They wouldn't even do cash transactions.  It was very annoying.  We waited a bit hoping it would come back up but no.  That was frustrating.

We left there and went to the Mayodan Goodwill. I found two bags with stuff for $2 each. In between the two bags, there were craft supplies, two packages of pencils, a multi-pen, a ruler, and three loose pencils. The funniest thing is, two of the loose pencils are promo items for my bank! I thought that was pretty cool. There were also three brand new (at least I am pretty sure) Sakura gelly roll white pens! Very neat.  We went on from there to Martinsville and I only found one thing there.  I found a DayTimer planner for $1. Not a huge haul, but some good finds. At the Mayodan Goodwill, I found four Fossil bags! I didn't buy any of them. One I already had the exact same back and the other three were nice but they were not bags I would carry myself.  Yes, I could have gotten them to re-sell, but I'm a bit low on funds this month as I just had to pay taxes on my car. Yikes! I took a picture of a cute little tree at the Goodwill in Reidsville:

Tuesday Thrift Trip

Sorry about the last few days and not posting.  My friend and I went on a thrift trip today. We went to Reidsville and Mayodan. No Walkertown this trip.  We hit Reidsville first and went to the Salvation Army store.  I got another weather alert radio, a grabber stick, and a little sketchbook/scrapbook.   At Goodwill, I only found one item. This:

PXL_20210505_031007166

It's a ceramic Starbucks cup from 2011 and it's 8oz.  I just happened to see it and grabbed it. I may have said, mine! out loud. :p   From there we went to the Goodwill in Mayodan.  There was a little package there last time that I wanted and didn't get. It was some hanging file folders and some other types of folders mixed in. I got that, a got a two-pack of alcohol wipes, a little case that is the perfect size for carrying DS games, a little card maker set, and some straps to keep your sheets on the bed.  The little card maker set is some blank cards, envelopes, stickers, etc. Some of it has been used, but a lot of it is still there and it was only $2 so I got it.

That was the trip, not a lot of things, but I'm always happy to add to my Starbucks collection and this cup is nice.  I love the ceramic ones as I don't have a lot of those in my collection.

 

 


Goal met, again.

Yes, I just hit 50,000 words for CampNaNo!  Yes, I plan to go on.   I actually wrote like crazy today and got over 4000 words!  I was on a roll.  I wrote earlier today. I wasn't going to leave the house today, so I had plenty of time to write. I could write more, but I'm going to give myself a break until tomorrow.  I didn't do a lot more than writing today.  It's been a slow day. I've been at my desk on the MBP since I ate breakfast.  I need to run out and turn off the water. I turned it on to wash off Goontz yesterday and forgot to turn it off. We are under a freeze warning tonight! I don't want my hose to break.

I took another picture of my 'new' Fossil bag. It's not a great shot, but it's much better than he one I took last night! Here it is:

PXL_20210421_221758410

I have plastic bags in it to give it shape while it's not being used. It's so supple and nice. I'll probably save it for fall/winter time.   I just checked the weather on my MBP and it's currently 48˚!   It is pretty chilly inside, too. I am going to have to put on a sweater or a hoodie in a bit. I already put away my heater for the year and I'm not getting it back out.  I could just be lazy and get on my pajamas and snuggle under the covers in my bed.  That sounds pretty nice, actually! I think I'm going to organize my Starbucks cards and then crash on my bed and relax.  I have the cards that aren't the regular size ones in two disk boxes.   I would like to have them sorted by year like I do the other ones.  Here are the two file boxes and the cards:

PXL_20210421_234616583~2

These work great! The little one is for the smaller ones that are on a single card, the bigger box is for the weird-sized ones. It works out well! They stay organized and dust-free, too! I just finished organizing them. They look better and they are all in order.   

 


Wow!

So, my friend and thrifted today as we usually do on Tuesday. We did it a bit differently though. We ate at a place here for the first time and it was delicious.  I got a Philly steak and cheese and it was delicious!   The only way it could have been better is if it had been bigger.  We went to Martinsville VA first.  I only found one thing at the Goodwill there.  A belt bag with flying / in space tacos! LOL It was too cute not to buy.  We then went to Eden NC to the Goodwill there.  I found a glass turtle candle holder. It's heavy.  I also found an old holiday Starbucks tumbler (back when they still had the short size (8oz) tumblers. My friend got me a Monopoly game in there too. It's Monopoly city which I don't have.  I'm adding it to my Monopoly collection! :)

We left there and went to Reidsville. The Salvation Army store closes at 5 pm, so we missed that today.  We did to the Goodwill and I found another nice Fossil bag.  This is s brown satchel with leather embossed with designs. Very nice. I also found a Starbucks thermos from 2006. I look it up and it was part of a camping/travel set.  The next time I go, I'll look and see if the cups are there. I don't think so, but I'll look.  I have always wanted a Starbucks thermos, so I was glad to find this.  I also got a little metal note holder, a metal sign with the Eiffel tower on it, and Paris. It was originally from Hobby Lobby and was $12 new.  I got it for $1.49. :)  I also got a Hello Kitty game for the DS lite.  I saw it last time and didn't get it, I said if it were there when I went back, I would get it and I did. I haven't played it yet, but I will. It's got Kerroppi in it. YAY!!!!!! :D

OH! I also got a little yellow candle/lantern thingee from World Market. I got a green one in there a few trips back and I was hoping the yellow one just like it was still there. It was and now it's mine.   I was happy to get it and I'll display them together. I came home and got my writing done. I didn't have anything written before I left and I was able to get down 24017 words! Whoo-hoo! Now I just have a few more things to do and I'm going to crash. OH! I did mow some in the backyard when I got home. I forgot all about that.  It was getting really bad in one area, so I got it while I was still dressed from going out. I'm so glad to have that done.

This isn't the best picture ever, but here is the bag. It's so soft and supple and I love it.
