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!


Letters and lattes...

Well, letters, no lattes. Phooey!  I got all of my pen pal letters written today and mailed!  Whoo hoo! I'm so glad to have them done.  I got only one at the post office, so I'm now all caught up and have a new one.  It was a good thing to get them all done.  I went to the car wash while out and washed my car.  It needed a fresh wash.  I was going to do it here, but since I was already out, I went ahead and got it done.  I was tempted to go to Starbucks, but I was good and didn't go.  

When I was in the car wash, I took a picture of the pretty rainbow foam.  I always call it unicorn pee. :p. It's pretty, but this time it didn't go on very thick.

Exciting, isn't it? :p


Katydid!

I made a new friend today.  I've never seen one of these in person before.  This cute guy was hanging out on a tarp in my yard.  He is pretty big, too.  Check him out.  I took a picture because I was thinking he'd be gone the next time I went out, but I went out a bit later and he was still hanging around.  Here he is:

Pretty cool little guy, yes? I got a few errands done today that needed to be done. I have one more thing I was supposed to do but didn't.  D'oh! Hopefully tomorrow.  I made it out to pick up some supplies and I somehow found myself here:

I don't know how that happened. :P


Welcome September!

It's the first day of September and it's starting off okay. It was cooler today so that was nice.  I had to run out and pick up a package for a friend and I needed to pick up my prescription.  I did that and then I headed to Starbucks!  I got myself a nice latte and then went and captured two Munzees and deployed one.  I headed back in after that.  My friend came after work to pick up his package and brought some KFC to share. Yum!  I even got to keep the leftovers. Score! :p

I took a picture of my delicious latte on my dash with Starbucks as the background.  Enjoy!

It was tasty if a bit too sweet. (My fault entirely!) I wish they'd bring back the Maple pecan latte! I want one!  


It's my birthday!

What did I do to celebrate?  I went to mail back my old phone.  I checked my box and had some letters.  I washed my car because it needed it and I was too lazy to do it at home! I left there and went to Starbucks.  I got my birthday drink.  I sipped on it and went to the park to sit by my favorite tree for a bit. I hung out in the park a bit and then went and got gas for my car.  I filled it up / topped it off and it was only $8 so that was nice.  I did take some pictures.  Two in the post office and one of the darkening sky when I was sitting in the park.

I thought it was going to rain, but it never did. The sky was pretty though!  My friend texted me from work and said he was bringing by a hoagie from a local place.  Steak and cheese. It was delicious!  It was a good birthday lunch.  What's for dinner?  My favorite, hash brown casserole! :D. Yum.  That is too delicious meals today.  The Starbucks was pretty darn good, too! :p


Sunday and Starbucks!

I went out this afternoon and went by Starbucks and treated myself to a latte and a sandwich!  I got a vanilla latte with caramel and a double-smoked bacon sandwich. Delicious!  I also washed my car while out. It has rained the past few days and I noticed mud on my car.  It was from where it rained so hard that it splashed on the car.  I decided while out to wash it.  I could have brought it back here, but I went by the car wash that has the 'all washes $5' and they were fixed and running!  

I didn't do anything else while out.  I ate my sandwich near the Starbucks and then headed to the car wash.  I sipped on my coffee and still had a little when I got home which I enjoyed in the car while watching my resident groundhog.  The little cutie came out from one of my outbuildings.  He tried to climb a little tree out there and fell off.  Poor guy!  He was okay, though.  He is such a cutie!

I went in the house and got the trash together and carried it to the can. I put it on the street for the trash trucks tomorrow.  I also noticed some branches down and carried them to the street too.  The grass needs mowing again, but it's still wet, so I'll have to wait until at least tomorrow for that.  I came in and put away the laundry I washed yesterday, tossed the bed linen in the dryer, washed my hair, and then sat down for a bit.  I got a lot accomplished.  I might read some, I'm not sure. I finally finished my current read.  I started in early last month!  I didn't pick it up as much as other reads, so it took me a long time to finish.  I am probably going with a zombie or post-apocalyptic book next.  I usually devour those pretty darn quickly!

OH! I forgot to mention that yesterday when I went to Reidsville, I set off a 'blast' on Munzee. It is the one that will capture up to 50 virtual Munzees that are in the area of up to a mile (or a bit over, I forget). Anyway! I did it and I got 50 virtuals.  Cool!  I was going to go around and deploy some physical munzees today, but I wanted to give everything a chance to dry out a little more!


Post office trip.

I had planned to go to the post office this evening and check my box and then swing by Starbucks as it's double star day.  I was able to go to the post office, but not Starbucks.  My friend texted that he was coming over after he ate to work on my air conditioner in my room.  I had enough time to go to the post office because I asked him.  I had enough time for Starbucks too, but I didn't know that at the time. I don't like to make people wait for me.  I missed out on my chance at double stars. :( Oh well, maybe next month!

The post office trip was a success. I received five letters. Four from regular pals and one from a new one.  It's always fun to get new penpals.  For once, I didn't have any mail in my box except pen pal letters!  I am glad I went.  I have informed delivery, but I didn't know about several of the letters.  I don't know if I just overlooked those days emails or what. 

I hope what my friend did to my air conditioner will help tonight.  Last night I had a really hard time sleeping.  It was right at 5 am the last time I looked at the clock.  I couldn't get cool or comfortable.  I'm hoping the air will be cooler tonight. 


Stuff and more stuff!

So, yesterday at Goodwill I got a lot of stuff.  I got a Starbucks cold cup tumbler.  It is missing it's straw, but I can get replacement ones. I found another 'Starbucks' tumbler.  I say it like that because it DOES have a Starbucks logo on it, I'm just not sure it's a legit Starbucks tumbler.  I am still searching to see if I can find one like it.  I also found a really cool Starbucks cup from the Barista line! ^_^. First time finding anything like that.  I also got some stretch sting (for crafting), two pumpkin buckets, the Pokeball, a snowman ornament, a mug with a red crocheted cozy, a Gap purse (.99!), some graph paper, and a letter-size pad holder.  Whoever donated it left a cute Harry Potter pen in there so that was an extra score! I think that was all I got.  I got all of that for $16. Not bad at all!  

Today, I only went out once.  I had planned to go and wash Goontz and then vacuum too.  As I left the house, it was a bit cloudy, but no rain.  As I started driving it began to sprinkle and then the bottom fell out! LOL! It rained a LOT.  I decided to give up on the car wash since I was getting a free one!  I went to Dairy Queen and had a cotton candy Blizzard.  I had forgotten just how good they are.  It was delicious.  I turned on Munzee while there and noticed that the parking lot I was sitting in to eat had quite a few Munzees.  I was only able to find two and capture one.  One was faded too much to scan.  The others were in other parts of the lot, but it was still drizzling a bit and it began to thunder, so I headed home. Most of the Munzee stickers were on light poles and I didn't want to be scanning and become a possible target for a lightning strike! :P I'll go get the other ones at another time.  

PS Blizzards are EXPENSIVE! Sheesh!

 

PPS The Starbucks tumbler IS legit.  It's an old Thermoseve one.  I can find many of them that are the same type as mine but with different designs. I haven't been able to find a picture of my design, but they are legit.  I am just so used to all Starbucks cups having Starbucks on the bottom.  I guess these were before they changed.  

 


Oops, impulse!

I just ordered another Fossil bag on eBay.  It was one I was looking at when I bought the cute little striped one.  I got an alert today that a bag on my watch list was about to end via auction. It was cheap and still at the opening bid, so I decided to bid on it. I won with the opening bid. Yay! It's another fabric one and a pattern I've wanted for a while now.  I'll take pictures when it gets here.

I ran to the grocery store today to get a few things I missed when I went earlier.  I participate in a program they have that when you buy x amount of something in different departments, you get some money back on a future trip. (Example, spend $30 in frozen, get $5 back.) I had enough rewards today that my total was free.  That was crazy! I didn't mind though! 

I got myself a treat at the store today. I bought a pint of ice cream. Not just any ice cream, but coffee ice cream. Yummy!  I used to get a coffee ice cream from Starbucks, it was in grocery stores. It was SO good.  I decided to give this a try.  I wish Starbucks still made it.  I haven't tried this yet, but I'm hoping it's good.  Coffee ice cream? How could it be bad? :P
