Brrr!

Today's walk was rather chilly! It was only in the 40's today and the wind was blowing. It wasn't so bad when it wasn't windy, but when it was.  BRRR!  I got my walk in though and then came home and put on warm 'at home' clothes which include 'give up on life pants' (sweat pants) lol . I actually turned my heater on in my room for the first time today!  I had brought it in a while ago, but I hadn't turned it on yet.  I finally broke down today and turned it on.

Last night, my friend needed to go to Target to pick up some things and I rode with him.  I saw some gift cards at Starbucks as we were leaving that I'd missed the night before.  He was on a schedule so I didn't get to look at them.  I ran back over there tonight and got the ones they have that I didn't have.  I now have 11 of the holidays cards. I think there are about 50 this year. Yikes! LOL I took a picture of the ones I had so when I get to the regular Starbucks and go in, I will know which ones I already have.  My collection is really growing!

I was going to get a drink at the Starbucks in Target but there was a long line and it's usually only one person working the Starbucks in there.  I decided to hit the drive thru of the regular one. I did that and came home with my delicious caramel brulee latte!  It was so good.  I got home and realized that I needed a few staples at the grocery store, so I decided to go.  I figured wiht it being a little later in the day (after 7) it wouldn't be as crowded and I was right.  I got sugar, bananas, cheese, Coke, ketchup, bread, and 3 froxen dinners. My favorite ones.  They were 2/$5 and buy two, get one free. So technically, 3/$5.  i was lucky with my bread.  Sometimes they won't have any of it as I buy a kind that they don't stock a lot of. It's Heiner's 35 if you are interested.  Each slice is only 35 calories and it tastes like regular bread to me.  They had one loaf and I grabbed it!  

I came home and was sort of slacking off.  I finally opened Scrivener and wrote my NaNo words for today.  I'm now officially over 20000! Yay!  I've done my French and I'm blogging now, so the only thing I need to do is some work in my bullet journal and then I'm going to climb into bed and read.  I'm still reading the book about Marie Hilley.  I'm getting near the end.  I put it on hold for a few days early on in NaNo.  I hope one of my holds at the library show up soon so I'll have something to read when I'm done with it.

I'm almost done with IT, too. I've been listening to the audiobook on my daily walks.  I think I'm going to load the Dark Tower books on my iPod touch to listen to after IT.  I should be finished with IT tomorrow and then I'll re-start that epic journey to the Tower again. ^_^


The Dark Tower

I am a total Stephen King fan.  I've read everything of his in print.  My favorite book by him being The Stand.  I'm also a Dark Tower junkie.  I have read and re-read the series many times.  Tonight, I remembered the face of my father and went to see the movie adaptation.  Truly the writers have remembered the face of their fathers.  It was wonderful.  If you have never read the Dark Tower books, it is still a good action movie.  If you have read the books, GO SEE IT!  There are other worlds than these.....


Wednesday post time!

I got in my walk today and it was a little bit cooler.  Not much, but enough to help.  I actually slept until my silent alarm on my Fitbit went off.  I went on my walk about an hour earlier than my usual time.  I came home and took my time doing my workouts.  I was able to take a few minutes between them.  That was nice.  I like having the time to relax a bit and not be in a rush.  Sometimes the internet is spotty and the videos don't want to load.  I did that a few times today, but I had the extra time, so I didn't mind.

I got those done. It was core and cardio day. OUCH!  I ate lunch and then got my things together for Starbucks.  I relaxed a little while and then headed over there.  I was able to get my favorite chair immediately.  I had six letters to write and I got them all done.  I was looking forward to playing Pokemon Go while there too, but the servers were down for most of my visit.  They didn't come up until near the end.  I ended up staying a bit longer than I planned.  I almost forgot that I needed to go pick up my prescription at Kmart.  I would have walked there on one of my walks, but they are doing road construction in front of it and it's a mess.  I didn't want to get run over!

I got my prescription and headed home.  I posted to Letters and Lattes and then came here to post.  Now, I'm going to relax for a while before getting in bed and relaxing for the night.  I am hoping to get some reading done tonight. 


It's Thursday, right?

Yeah, my week has been all messed up because of the 4th being on Monday.  I was like having two Sundays! :P  So, yes, it's Thursday.  I got in my walk.  It was hot, and even though it was the same temperature when I walked on Tuesday, it didn't feel as hot.  I am very glad of that!  That heat is horrible!

I came home and did four of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  I had a friend ask last night if I'd drive him to pick up his car.  I did that and then went to the grocery store and got a few things.  Hopefully I'm set for the month on food.  I'm broke, so I'll have to be!  I came home and relaxed for a while.  The reason my friend needed to pick up his car?  He bought a motorcycle!  He drove it home from where he bought it and then I drove him to pick up his vehicle.  He asked if I'd like to ride on it later.  I agreed.  I have only been on a motorcycle about three times in my entire life.  It's just not for me.  I kept feeling like I was either going to fall off the side, or side into my friend. lol  It was interesting, to say the least!

I came back here and had a late dinner.  I decided to post here before I crash on my bed.  I finished The Drawing of Three last night and started briefly on The Wastelands.  It only gets better and better from here! I love The Dark Tower.  Plus, we meet Oy in this one. :D  I love Oy.


Goodbye June!

It's hard to believe that it's the end of June already!  That means tomorrow is a whole new month.  I got in a good walk today, but I was so hot when I got home I felt like dying.  Today was cardio day on the calendar. YIKES! lol So, I get home and only relax for a few before getting into my workouts.  Did I mention the #100burpeeburnout was on today's calendar? Yeah, I made it through!

So I got my workouts done, ate lunch, and then went out with the weed eater.  My friend got to come and get most of the front lawn done. Yay!  I only had the parts where it's unsafe / impossible to use the riding mower.  I got those done after what seemed like forever.  My weed eater was being bitchy!  I finally got that done and came in to cool off for a little bit.

I went up to my friend's house to pick up a dog crate. I'm dog sitting their pups tomorrow.  I spend a little time up there since they'll be gone all weekend.  I came home, ate dinner, and then just did a little straightening up.  I am now relaxing a bit.  I realized I hadn't posted to either of my blogs today, so I'm doing that now.  I need to post to Letters and Lattes and then I'm going to read.  I started The Drawing of Three last night.  I was up way past my bedtime, too! Oops!


Good grief!

So, I had to stop at four places on today's walk.  The first took 1 second.  The second place, I went in and no one was at the desk.  I waited and waited and finally someone came and took the things I needed to drop off.  I went on my way and hoped that I could make up the lost time.  I get to the bank and there is one person ahead of me.  He is already being waiting on as I get there.  Over 20 minutes later, I finally got to get waited on. ~_~; I was not amused.  I don't know what the hell he was doing, but it took forever.  While I was in there, another man came in.  He walked around to be closer to the teller.  I gave him a look!  When the guy that was there when I got there finally moved, this new guy acted like he was going ahead of me.  OH HELL NO!  I just gave him another look and said, "I've been waiting quite awhile."  I got done there and I had to stop by the post office to pick up the letter that I didn't get to pick up yesterday.  I had gotten a small rebate check, thus the trip to the bank.

Luckily, that only took a minute.  I checked my box, no mail, and headed out.  Of course by this time, I was REALLY behind on time.  I was not amused.  I walked faster than I normally do and it wasn't easy as it was quite humid out there.  Luckily it was overcast so that made it a little better.

I got home and did four of my workouts, I ate lunch and did one more.  I did a few other things that needed doing and then ran out for some errands.  I went to Dollar Tree and got a few things and headed home.  I am now typing this up so that I can get off the computer for the night.  I started on The Gunslinger last night and I'm already half way done. ^^;  A friend of mine has been promising to read the Dark Tower series and he finally started.  I hope he loves it as much as I do!

Tomorrow is Starbucks Wednesday.  I should stay home and weed eat the front yard, but I still hold out hope my friend will come and do it. If not, I'll do it on Thursday.  If they don't get here before Friday, it will be too late.  They are leaving for vacation for the weekend.  I really don't want to have to go out and do it with the weed eater as it takes a very long time and it kills my back. :(

Okay, enough complaining!  I'll be back tomorrow.


Is it Fall yet?

It was another hot walk today.  I wish I had more places to fill up my water bottle.  I think that would make my walk a whole lot easier.  When I was able to walk on the trail, there were three different water fountains that I passed.  I could fill up more than once and that was nice!  It's just so hot out there!

I stopped by the post office but I only had a 'postage due' card in there for a letter. I didn't have any money with me, so that will have to wait until I do! I just hope they won't send it back before I can get it.  I came home and did all but one of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  I was going to get the weed eater out and get the front lawn done, but it rained for just a little bit.  I used that as my excuse to not do it!  I keep hoping my friend will actually come and help me out like they said!  It's a pain for me with the weed eater.  They have a riding lawn mower. ~_~;

I hope to get off this computer right after this and relax with my current read.  I want to finish it so that I can carry it back to the library. I am thinking of re-reading The Dark Tower again soon.
