True Crime 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.  


Kindle Unlimited

I finished my current read today and decided to give Kindle Unlimited a try. I already have four books downloaded from it.  Two true crime, a new zombie book, and the second book of a series I read the first book of a week or so ago.  Sadly the book I just finished and the one series before that are not on Kindle unlimited, but there seem to be a lot of interesting books.  I might find some new authors and that is always a good thing.  For now, I'm going to enjoy my free three month access to books!


Sunday

Well, let's see.  I have gotten a few things done today. Not a lot, but some. :p My bed linen is in the dryer waiting to go back on my bed.  I have washed and dried my hair and the laundry that I washed yesterday has been put away.  I meant to do it last night, I just never got around to it.

I have been reading on my current true crime book today.  I was about to give up on it when it took an unexpected turn and now I am pretty sure I'm going to finish it!  It had gotten to a trial and that part was boring, but then there was a mistrial and then a major thing happened and then it got good again!  As soon as I get the linens back on the bed, I'm going to read more.  I had to stop to get today's Camp NaNo writing done.  I had to do a bit of research first for something I am planning on adding.  I am now at 34,000 + words! Yay!

How I'm using Evernote today.  I send the articles I found on the research to Evernote so I can have a copy and review them as needed.


Good Gravy Marie!

I was about to let the day pass without posting. I got groceries today in the rain and then voted and that wore me out. lol. After it stopped raining, I went out and trimmed some greenery and dead things in the yard and took the branches to the street.  I ran back out later to get gas as my gas light was coming on and going off earlier.  It acts up when it's low.  

So, I didn't start a puzzle today since I was doing other things, I will start one tomorrow.  I did get a present today! My friend texted me a picture of a shirt a few days ago and I only replied, "Mighty Need!"  Guess what he brought by today? Yes, the shirt.  Yes, I'm into true crime, yes, I find serial killers fascinating.  Yes, I have a 'favorite' known serial killer. My favorite unknown would be Zodiac, but I digress.  In any case, this is what my friend brought me today. Now I have to see if I have the nerve to wear it! :D

Fall?

Well, yesterday it was in the 90's here and today when I looked at my weather app it was 56˚!  No, seriously! It was cool enough today that I was able to turn the air off.  I am not taking it out of the window just yet, because it could get hot again.  Who knows with this crazy weather!

I went out this afternoon and went to a local store that makes their own chicken salad.  The stuff is amazing.  I got a container of that, a little smidge of country ham, and an orange. They have a little bit of everything in there. It's a small, local business that has been there for a long time.  I love the chicken salad and I hadn't gotten any in awhile.  It was delicious! 

I didn't do much today.  I watched a ton of episodes of Web Of Lies (It's a show on Investigation Discovery that I love) I worked the puzzle too.  I didn't finish it even though it's only 300 pieces and they are big pieces.  I decided to finish tomorrow because the puzzle is really busy.  Lots of colors.  You'll see when I post a picture with this post.

I put my outside Halloween decorations out today.  With the cooler weather, it felt more like October and fall.  I put out a little flag, a ghost on a pole, and my two scarecrows.  I also lit up the electric pumpkins that I keep in the window in my living room.  My house has an old picture window and they look so cute in there!  I still want to get a real pumpkin before Halloween.  I usually get one every year and keep it in my room until it starts to go bad.  They usually last well into Spring, but last year's didn't.  I hope this years lasts longer!

Bonus stars are fun!

So, I didn't walk today as I had planned.  The funny thing is, the rain stopped right about the time I would be going for my walk! LOL  Since I had already decided to skip the walk today, I did just that!  I went out later and hit a Pokestop as this was day seven of a streak and I didn't want to lose my streak!  While I was out, I found myself at Starbucks.  Today and tomorrow, they are giving you 20 bonus stars for any holiday drink.  I got a caramel brulee and it was delicious!  I came home and went in the basement. No luck on getting the pilot light lit on the water heater, but I got nice cold feet. :( . 

I decided to wash my hair because it's been bothering me.  When I washed it before, I didn't realize until later that I didn't get all the shampoo out and it was driving me crazy. That water was COLD.  Brrrr.  While I was washing it and freeing my head off, I had the hair bonnet hair dryer on and warming up.  It felt so nice to get under that thing, let me tell you!

I thought about putting up my Yule tree, but last year, a lot of my light strands were faulty..  Either part of the string worked or none of them worked. I went to Target online and got five boxes of lights.  I went to the drive up to pick them up, but no one ever came out. My car was trying to overheat, so I pulled into a another parking spot and went in.  I picked up my lights and headed out.  The lady said the drive up pick up should have worked, but it didn't!  I got my lights and headed home.  I had put the tree up before leaving the house.  Just the actual tree.  When I got home, I tested the five strands of lights I had from last year and only two of them worked!  One strand worked only half way.  In other words, half of the strand would light up and the other half didn't! The one strand that did completely work was an old string and the blue lights weren't as dark as the newer ones. I didn't us that one.  I had enough with the five I bought and the half strand.  I think it looks lovely.  What do you think?

I also did my French and got 1777 words for NaNo!  One of my library books that I had a hold on came in today so I am going to switch to that one on my Kindle.  The one I'm currently reading can be renewed anytime.  I want to get this one that is on a limited time schedule first.


Sunday Starbucks!

I truly wanted to go to Starbucks today and take my laptop and get in my NaNoWriMo writing in.  With my car acting up like it did on Friday, I decided that if my car would start at home, it would probably be a good idea to NOT turn it off until I got home! lol  I drove over to Starbucks and decided that I would get something different.  I got a Peppermint white mocha.  I hadn't had one in ages.  I had forgotten how good they are, but I also had forgotten how sweet they are.  Yowza! LOL . It was delicious, though!

I came straight home from there.  I have been doing chores.  I got in my walk today at my usual time.  I decided to wash my hair earlier in the day so I had to warm up some water. lol . Since it was cold and my water heater is 'off' at the moment, I did NOT want to wash my hair in cold water.  While I was folding and putting away a small load of laundry, I put a pot on the stove and filled it with water.  After I got the clothes folded and put away, the water was nice and warm.  I used it to wash my hair over the sink.  that way, I didn't have to use it straight from the faucet and freeze my poor head off. :p . I got that done and then immediately went to my room and dried it.  I walk around with a wet head in summer, but not in the fall when it's only in the low 50's!  

I have my bed linen in the dryer and I'm pretty sure it's done and ready to go back on the bed, but I haven't gotten that far yet.  I've done my French lesson and I'm doing my blog post now.  Once I get the bed linen back on the bed, I only need to do my writing for today's NaNo.  

I did some work in my current bullet journal today too. I already had this coming week's layout done, so I did the next week's.  I'll l have to put in my December habit tracker soon.  I'll do that later today or in a few days.  It's just the 18th, so I have some time!  

I'm still finding great crime shows on Prime, but they are short. Usually it's just one season or so of a show.  I have a lot of them loaded up so I should be okay for awhile in any case.  I hope they add more shows.  I love true crime!


Saturday's post.

Thrilling title, I know. :p . I walked today.  It was overcast so it wasn't too hot and that was nice.  I don't mind walking so much when it isn't scoring hot.  I got my walk in and came home and relaxed until lunch time.  I fixed lunch and called a friend. I wanted to go to her house and drop off something and then run some errands.  She wasn't home, so I went waited and did some things here.  When she got home, I went up there and was going to do what I needed to do up there and then do my errands.  Well, that didn't happen! I got there and she got me to ride with her somewhere. I did and then we ran back by her house to get her son to take him by McDonald's to get some food.  We did that and then went back to her house. I had to see all the animals, so I did that and then did what I needed to do. After that, I ended up staying a lot longer than I had planned.  My hubby and I discussed books.  He gave me those first three books that I read recently so we were talking about those and serial killers and true crime.  It was a good time. lol

After I left there, I came home and relaxed a few minutes before fixing some dinner.  I did that and watched a couple of episodes of Crime Stories.  I just finished those and did my French.  I have charged my Fitbit and now I'm going to do some more notes and prep work for Nano.

Oh! Cassey Ho, also know online as Blogilates got married today to her long time boyfriend. ^_^ Her brand Popflex Active sent all the people registered at the site a gift card today to celebrate the wedding. I ordered a cool shirt!  It's a black t-shirt with Pop Pilates on it.  I love it! ^_^ . It was $22 and I had the $10 gift cards.  Yay!


No sale!

My anime cel didn't not sell on ebay.  I relisted it tonight. I plan to put some more items up in a few days.  I want to make some money to pay the bill that caused so much trouble.  You know, the bill that wasn't mine to begin with? ~_~;  Anything I make will go towards that.

I walked today and believe me, I did not want to.  I wanted so badly to just skip in and lie in bed and watch true crime shows or just read.  I was glad to get in my walk though! I also watching true crime shows and read. lol . I finished book five and now I'm on to book six.  I've really enjoyed this series and I'm going to explore this authors other works.  I see he has written several more books, so I'll be looking into those.

After I finish this last one of his, I'll go back to the Ted Bundy book I had started before I got sucked into these.  It's a book of prison interviews with him.  I have read a lot of books on Bundy, this will be something different.  He is, by far, my favorite serial killer.  Yes, you can have a favorite.  My second favorite would be Zodiac.  I've read everything I can get on him, too.  

Now that I've totally freaked any of my blog readers out, I'll close and go back to my book. lol . ^_^.


Wednesday post time!

Boy was it hot on today's walk! I swear it was a lot hotter than yesterday.  I made it home and had to cool off a while before I could do my workouts.  I got those in and my French lesson.  I need to do today's squat challenge.  After lunch, I went to the bank on a quick errand.  I didn't stay out because my car is still acting up badly.  I was able to make it there and back, so that was good.  They are re-paving the streets around the bank (and along my walking route) and it's a big mess!  I will be glad when they are done with that.  I think they might get it done quicker if everyone was working.  I'll see one or two guys actually working and five or six standing os sitting watching.  Really?  It's so annoying.  

Right now, I'm getting my blog post in so I'm not rushing later to do it.  I am also watching Homicide Hunter.  I am thinking of working on my pen pal letters tonight although I'm not sure.  As long as i get them all written by the weekend like I said before, I should be good.  I don't want to get behind again!  All the letters I got yesterday are from regular pals except one.  I got a letter from a potential new one! I sent her full friendship book back and she wants to be pals. Yay!

I'm still listening to the Oz books on my walk.  They are so good. I love these series.  I am not sure what I'm going to listen to after these are done. I'll search Librivox and see what else I can find.  I think at one time, I got Dracula on there.  I'd like to listen to that again.  They also used to have, and may still have, A Houseboat on the River Styx.  That one is excellent.  It's been a long time since I listened to or read it.  I'll have to look that up!
