No excuses.

I'm sorry for not posting for two days. I meant to post every day but you know how that goes!  I am glad I remembered to post tonight! :p  I am now over 41,000 words on NaNo and I wrote a bunch on my other fic last night too.  I am hoping to get some written on it tonight, too.  I always make sure to get my NaNo words in first.  I am very tired, so if I get any words at all on my other work I'll be happy.  

By the way, just out of curiosity, I downloaded another recovery software and it finds the parts on my drive that the one I was using won't find anymore. It only lets you recover 1Gb so I was able to get a few more things.  I am thinking if I download every recovery software that lets you get back so much stuff, eventually, I'll get it all back! lol, I would like to have it all.  The next bi thing on my work list is a new hard drive cable and I should be back in business with the internal drive I bought and I'll keep the 2 TB one for backups and such.

I washed a ridiculous amount of dishes today and I need to fix dinner but I am damned if I am going to dirty up any more plates or dishes tonight.  :p


Traveler's Notebook in the park

I finally got to take some pictures of my new TN and I also took a few photos of the Foxy with the new 'dashboard' I created!  To get more info on each picture just click on it. It explains what is in each picture.  I hope you enjoy!

Sunday not so funday!

Hoo boy am I tired. I'm sorry for not posting the last two days.  I didn't get a chance to do any pictures of my TN's either as it's been overcast and rainy.  Hopefully, we'll get a dry, sunny day soon!  I got so much done today.  I put away a load of laundry I washed yesterday, I put away a sink full of dishes I washed two days ago, I wash my hair and I washed my bed linen.  I just need to put it back on the bed. I was going to do that and then post, but I knew I'd end up forgetting or running out of time, so I'm posting first!

Yesterday, when I went out, I noticed a light on my dash. I was showing my back right tire was low.  I went and got air in it. It was the same one that did that right before the beach trip in September.  I filled it and went ab0ut my business. I needed to run an errand for a friend later and it was on again.  I put some more air in.  I guess it must have a leak or a hole.  I had to run out today and noticed it was as low as it was yesterday when I started so I put air in it. I'm hoping to get it patched or replaced asap.  It is so frustrating. Having to worry and do maintenance every time I used my car was something I was glad to give up when I got this car. My friend did say that it would need a set of tires before too long when he got it for me, so I guess it is going to be time!

I am going to put my linens back on my bed. I can't wait.  I haven't sleep well this past week and I'm hoping that fresh, clean, bedlinen will help!  I have been trying to figure out what I'm doing for NaNo this year.  I can either do another book in the zombie series, book two of my ice skaters series, or something new and completely different.  I can't make up my mind and I need to hurry up so I can prep! Ahhhh!


Halloween card!

I needed a few things at Target tonight so I went over there.  They weren't busy at all and it was so nice to be able to wander around without people everywhere.  I got the item I needed and several other goodies.  I found a really cool huge pack of Post-it notes for $10.  I bought them.  I won't have to buy Post-its for a loooong time unless I find more really good sales. lol Here is the pack:

I checked the Starbucks in Target before leaving and I found two cards I didn't have AND they have the new Halloween card. It's glow in the dark, too!  I was so glad to get one.  I wanted it. before I knew it was glow in the dark. I wanted it even more after finding that out. It's cute too! Here are the three cards I was able to get:

I'm happy with my finds.  Before going to Target, my friend and I went to an auto parts store to get an air filter for Goontz. When I was getting my oil changed, they told me that I had no air filter!  I don't know how the hell that happened, but I have one now.  


Inexpensive fix!

I don't think I mentioned it, but my stovetop died recently.  The oven part hasn't worked in years.  The stovetop has never given me any issues until I was about to cook something.  The burner came on and I didn't think anything about it. I started to 'cook' my meal and noticed it wasn't getting warm.  I looking and the burner was off. I tried to get it back on but it would not come back on.  I gave up and fixed something else and starting looking up hot plates and electric skillets online.  I decided a hot plate would be the better option because I could use pans on it.  

Today, I was out getting a few things I needed and found a one burner one at Family Dollar.  It was only $10 so I bought it.  It's works great.  I pulled out a pot and put some water in to make sure. It heated it right up so I'm happy.  I don't use the stove top a lot, but I do use it and I needed something in place of it.  It's so small, I could also pack it on trips.

I had looked at several places local via the online search and didn't find any in stock.  They would all have to be shipped. I looked on eBay and Amazon too.  When I went to the dollar store I figured I'd ook just in case.  I saw this one and bought it. I'm glad I did. It's small, but it will be perfect for me.

It has a one year warranty on it, too.  I'm happy with it. :)


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!

PXL_20200912_211936345.MP

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. :)

 


Another Leuchtturm 1917? Yes!

I have my notebook for my 2021 bullet journal and it's a Leuchtturm1917!  This is my fourth one.  It's yellow and it's so pretty.  I will probably add a decal or sticker to the front at some point.  This years I had already planned the decal for it.  It was a Myrtle Beach one that matched the cover.  I will look to see if I can find a cute decal when we go to the beach next month. If not, I'll use a sticker.  I got a little packet of Adventure Time stickers in the mail yesterday.  They came in with the order where I ordered the Leuchtturm.  I also ordered a few more things that arrived yesterday.  The last item in that order was supposed to come today, but it didn't.  Hopefully, it will come tomorrow.  It's a passport size TN. ^^: Yes, I know I don't need any more TNs! ;p

An eBay item that I ordered last week came today, too.  My Note has all four of the Nissan hubcaps on it, but the front driver side one had broken pieces and it's cracked in places. I was able to find one on eBay and ordered it. It finally came today.  I was able to put it on after some fun of trying to get it on. LOL, The old one was easy to get off, the new one took me a bit but it's on.  Now my wheels all look good.  

The next thing I want to get for the Note is the cargo cover.  I don't know why they don't have that included when you buy the car. I've seen other people mention this, so I don't think this one is just missing one from a previous owner.  The cargo cover (Nissan branded) is a bit over $100 so I am going to keep looking. I'm hoping to find one for a much, much lower price!

Here is the newest Leuchtturm.  I can't wait to set it up and hope that 2021 is much better than this crazy year!

Munzee and more!

I received a new traveler's notebook in the mail today. :P. This one is bigger than a passport size.  It will hold small Moleskine cahiers and Field Note notebooks.  I made mine into a Munzee kit!  I can use it as that and if I want to change it up, carry it as a smaller tn in the future! I like the way I set it up.  I want to get another pocket type insert.  The one I'm using cam in another thing I got and I saved it. It fits perfectly in this little TN and I can store Munzees in there.  All the extras I have in an old Altoid tin.  I can add more to the TN as needed.  Neat, yes?

Of course, I had to give it a test run!  First I drove to a place where there was a virtual Munzee and captured it, then I rode to Ballou park and drove around trying to decide where to deploy a couple of Munzees.  I have deployed several in the park.  You can deploy one within 50 feet of someone else's and at least 150 feet from your own. (Or the other way around, I forget! LOL!) Anyway!  I was able to deploy two and that was fun.  I took pictures of the TN while there since I was outside is beautiful natural light.  Here are the pictures:

This is the TN itself.  I put it in the bag my Foxy came in to carry it in my purse.  It's such a cute size!


20200625_185037

The inside.  I have a Moleskine Evernote notebook in there.  I am using it to keep track k of the Munzees as I deploy them to keep a record. (I also have a tracker in my bujo)


20200625_185037

The little plastic guy that I'm using for now to hold my Munzees.  I used washi tape to secure everything since it's easy to remove and re-stick.  The blue post it has a list of ones that I need to repair that I've deployed in the past.

I think this will be a neat system and I can easily toss this TN in another bag if I go out without my  purse.  I think I'm going to love it.  I found this TN on Amazon for a very good price. It comes in brown, black, and dark brown (what I have).  Very nice quality. It came with one notebook and an extra band. Highly recommended!


Evernote love!

If you have read my blog for a while, you know I love Evernote. I have Moleskine Evernote notebooks, en Evernote Jot stylus, and even some cool Evernote stickers.  I added one more thing to my collection today.  This awesome Evernote triangle messenger/laptop bag.  It was originally sold via Evernote Marketplace.  Sadly, they closed shop so it's hard to find anything except via eBay or other second hand methods.  Well, I found my holy grail of Evernote items.  (well, one of two.  There is still a shirt I must have!) Anyway!  I found two sellers with the Evernote commuter bag on eBay recently and I was able to snag one.  It's so cool!  It is very awesome. It takes up a small amount of space, but it has a lot of room inside!  It is made to sit upright on the desk or surface you are using.  I love it.  I can't wait for things to get back to normal so I can take it to Starbucks. :)

I took a few pictures to share. I couldn't do outside pictures because of the rain, but I tried my best to use the best lighting. I swear the lighting in my house SUCKS!  I should have filled the bag for one shot, but I didn't.  Here is the outside and two shots of inside:

That little divider in the last picture can be moved.  It originally came with two more of those, but I'm not complaining. I'm going to move that one down to the end and have it big enough to hold my laptop charger. I'll have the rest of the room for other stuff.  That is the one thing about most laptop bags, they aren't really designed for chargers! This has room for it and so much more.  I love that the front flap folds down so you can get to everything.  

The seller also tossed in an unexpected bonus.  A Moleskine travel journal!  Awesome sauce!  You know I love Moleskines!  Such a nice surprise. ^_^. 


Sunday stuff

I have been busy as usual on my Sunday afternoon.  I have washed my hair and bed linen. My hair is almost completely dry and my bed linen is dry. I just need to put it back on the bed.  I washed a load of laundry last night and I put it away too.  I also washed the dishes.  I am sure there is something else I'm forgetting I need to do, but I am now going to take a bit of a break!  I started a new true crime book last night that I found on Kindle Unlimited.  It's good so far.  I also have another that I downloaded at the same time.  So far I've found some good things to read with Kindle unlimited.  We'll see if I continue to find things.  I have two and a half more months to see before I decide if I'll keep it.

I had thought about taking the car out for a bit to just get out of the house, but it's in the 80's today and as you know, I don't have working air in my car.  I think I'll skip the trip! lol

It seems like I have something I needed to add, but I'm coming up blank. Sleep has been nutty the last week or so, so I am not thinking right.  Plus I've only had Starbucks once in almost two months so that probably has something to do with it too! :p
