Traveler's Notebook Feed

And so it goes...

I am suffering from cool notebook syndrome.  My little Moleskine Cahiers are so nice I don't know how to go about using them! LOL! I have this issue with a lot of my notebooks.  I really want to make my TN a TN for learning French.  I just have to decide how to go about it.  I was thinking of one notebook for notes while taking lessons.  (Words I have trouble with, things I didn't understand, etc.) and the other two for certain things.  I just haven't decided on those things yet!  I DID put an address label in one of the cahiers.  Progress, I guess? 

In other news, I have been writing on my fic every day.  I figure it's good practice for NaNo.  I do need to do some more prep for NaNo but not too much.  I have the idea of the book in my head.  I just need to decide on what the main thing will be.  If my male skater is hurt, I have to research that.  If I do the stalking story, that will be easy peasy.  I read and watch enough true crime to have that one in the bag. LOL!  I will probably do the stalking and the injury in another book.  Who knows with me?

I have been playing Munzee every day for the past couple of weeks.  They have a Zeeops event going on and I've been able to do everything so far.  Tomorrow is the last day of this week's tasks.  I hope I'm able to do it and get the bonus. If you complete every day you get an extra perk at the end.  It's been fun and I've had a lot of fun deploying Munzees.  


Set up complete... for now!

I thought I would use a Traveler's notebook to enhance my French language studies and this is what I came up with.  I love it!  I'm using my latest TN in an A5 size with three Moleskine cahiers inside.  I hope to have something in each and use this to advance my learning.  I made it all Paris/French themed throughout.  Check it out here:

Sunday

I got so much done today.  I washed a load of laundry yesterday and I put it away today.  I washed my bed linen and my hair.  I also washed a week's worth of dishes.  I swear I'm going to keep them washed as I go and it never happens. D'oh!  I've been playing special Zeeops in Munzee so I ran out today to do the daily 'mission'.  It's fun and I earn things to make playing more fun.  

Today, yes on Sunday, I got a package in the mail. It was a package from Amazon.  I decided that I wanted Moleskine cahiers in my new TN instead of the Moleskines volants.  The cahiers are pale yellow and so pretty.  I also printed some things to put in the 'dashboard' I made.  I'll take pictures in good lighting tomorrow.  I think it looks so pretty!

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!

Well then

Guess what I forgot all about today? Yup, to take pictures of my new TN stuff.  Oops.  I needed to go to Walgreens for something and found some Halloween goodies.  Look at these guys.  So cute.  The Reese's was a nice treat.

I love that mug! It was the last one they had.  They were buy one get one 50% off.  I saw the cute 'potion' bottle and got it since it would be half off.  I love adding things to my ever growing Halloween collection.

I was messing around at home later on my phone and was looking in the Munzee app. There was a little thing in there to earn points for the mobile store so I did that, then I saw I could get more points for deploying or capturing a Munzee.  I haven't played in a while, so I went out and deployed three physical ones at Dan Daniel's park.  There is a little area at DD that I didn't even know existed!  That was cool.  I took a few sky pictures and a picture of a cute little tree.

I enjoyed my quick trip there and hope to go back and explore soon.  I didn't know that part was even there!  It was good to get out and Munzee again.  Maybe I can go out tomorrow and carry my TNs and Munzee, explore and take pictures of my TNs.  We'll see. I don't feel great at the moment, but I'm hoping to sleep off anything that I may have.  


Friday evening post

We went out and visited three Goodwill stores, a Salvation Army store, Tuesday Morning and we ate at King's Famous Pizza in North Myrtle Beach.  It was delicious as always.  I got some cool things.  I found a Sak roots handbag at the Salvation Army store, three pair of shoes at the Goodwill in NMB plus an amazing pen/pencil zip-up case that hold over 100 pens!  It's awesome and it's my favorite color, too!  It was a good day of thrifting for sure.  I found some really cute stuff at Tuesday Morning.  Two packs of washi (like I needed more!), a odd sized TN, some Halloween stampers, and a little book with notes in it.  Very cute! I love everything.  The little TN has two inserts that are regular size TN ones so I can use them in something else if I want.

I took a few pictures while out, too.  Here are some to share:

The first picture is some military plane (I think).  We saw it quite a few places unless there were more of them.  

 


Oops I did it again!

Well, I DID plan to post last night.  I just ran out of time. Why?  Well, my crazy bed did it's thing again and the boxspring fell through the frame.  I pulled the bed out, took everything out from under it, cleaned all around it, and then got down to business.  I tightened everything and anything I could to make sure it didn't do it again. I hope I was successful this time, but I hope that every time!  Hopefully, if I didn't get it perfect, it will last a while.

After I got it back together, I put the clean linens back on.  By that point, I was sore, injured, and dripping sweat.  I had to cool off before I died.  It took a while, but I finally got cooled down and was able to relax for a bit.  It was midnight before I finished getting everything back together so it was too late to post to my blog. I figured I would just wait until today.  

I ran out for a quick errand earlier today before the rain came.  I took a picture of my little TN in the car.  It's a better representation of the actual color.  It's so pretty.  I want another one just like it! LOL. Here it is resting on my steering wheel:

It's so pretty! I'm thinking of using it not only for Munzee but for journaling on the go.  I have the Munzee notebook in there and I had another notebook in there.  I can use it for journaling or notes.  I also stuck a little stack of Post-it notes in for quick notes.  It's so nifty.  I could also but the insert to make it into a wallet if I wanted. 

I took a picture of a couple of my latest Jack o' lantern finds at Goodwill.  I mentioned each of these as I got them, but I don't think I ever showed a picture of them.  Here they are together.  Such cuties!

MVIMG_20200830_164043

I love jack o' lanterns, but I particularly love ceramic ones.  They are fun to display with or without a tealight in them.  I might take pictures of my entire collection at one point and share them.  I will be decorating for Halloween very, very soon. I have boxes and boxes and boxes of Halloween stuff and the majority of it is .... yes, jack o' lanterns!


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!

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)

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!
