Friday...

I had to keep convincing myself that it was, in fact, Friday. It doesn't seem like a Friday at all!  Oh well, it is and here I am posting.  I got my Munzee stuff today.  I got five of the big game piece Munzees, a sheet of 50 generic Munzees, and a grab bag assortment of Munzees.  It was a good haul.  I can't wait to go out and play.  I was going to do that today, but plans got changed.

My friend texted and said we'd eat and then he had a few places he wanted to go if I wanted to tag along.  I did, so I did!  We ate and then we went looking at a few houses.  He is wanting to move from his house somewhere else and is just looking at different places. I wish him luck in his search. I really liked one of the places he looked at.  It was pretty neat.  As for my own house situation, it's still uncertain, but I can't do anything about it, so I'm going to try not to worry about it.

I went out yesterday evening and got another container for my washi.  I had been able to get everything in my old containers, but everything was crammed in there pretty tight. Now I have plenty of space and I can always add more washi. As if I need more! I also got a few more things I needed for the house.  I spent a lot more than I had planned!  I still don't know how I did that.  Too much stress, I guess.

Anyway. I hope to get out and Munzee again this weekend.  Perhaps I'll do it on Sunday again.  I have many new Munzees now so I want to go deploy them.  Hopefully it won't be too horribly hot.  At least I hope it won't be!  We'll see.  As for now, I'm going to sit back and relax until bed time.  I slept poorly last night and I'm hoping to make up for that tonight.


Beach Bingo!

For the past few trips to Myrtle Beach, I have made a Beach bingo card in my bujo.  I did it again this year and I finished decorating it and filling it in today. All the washi I used was actually bought while at the beach!  I love the way it looks.  Here is my completed bingo board:

I used my Canon Ivy to print three pictures for the left page.  I think it turned out well!  I love all the blue.  The marks on the bingo board are a star stamper that I bought while at the beach and I just colored in the center to make them more visible.  I like it!

I found a surprise today while in my kitchen. I went to give a drink of water to the succulent that I have had for years.  It is blooming!  It has two pretty little flowers on it.   I took a picture of that too! ;p

I didn't know it would bloom because I have had it a very long time and it never has before.  It was a nice surprise. I hope it gets more blooms in the future.  I have had it in that window ever since I got it because it does so well there.  I am scared to move it anywhere else!


Wednesday afternoon post

Well, we went out and went up to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to the Goodwill up there and my friend went to a pawn shop and a guitar store.  We also went to Tuesday Morning.  I got washi. (like I really need more!) and a few other things for journaling.  I spent $18 and I have no idea how. LOL

I only got a package of Scotch tape at Goodwill.  LOL, It was new in pack two-pack of scotch tape for .50 so I bought it!  I didn't get a chance to look at a lot of other stuff because the section I like to browse in was full of people.  I was about to lose my temper, so I left!

On the way back into Myrtle, we passed a Starbucks with a drive-thru that wasn't busy and my friend stopped so I could get a latte.  It was delicious, too!  They didn't have cascara syrup either, oh well.  The drink I got was pretty darn good.  Another freebie with stars! I took a picture of the tops of some tress outside the pawnshop while waiting.  I also took a picture of the ocean from the room when we got back.  It's calmed down quite a lot.

Friday follies!

Well, I was trying to figure out how when I take the bed apart again that I can fix it for the last time!  I was thinking if I could find something to run across the bottom of the frame so that the box springs won't fall through.  I was thinking wooden slats or something of that sort. I was hoping I could find something to use on m property.  Well, I was working that out when my friend called.

He lives up the street. (His mom is my bestie). He wanted to bring back a book he borrowed back in the dark ages (lol) and I told him we could sit on the porch and for him to bring Cocoa!  He agreed and I got to spoil and love on Cocoa and see my little stinky too! lol

He stayed until well after my usual lunchtime, so I just skipped lunch and went right to dinner.  I had a snack in the afternoon, so it wasn't too bad.  I ate my last two pieces of pizza for my dinner. I'm sad it's gone, but it sure was good while it lasted!  

I received a package from Amazon today.  I ordered some washi and some pens. The pens are blue ballpoints and they have a very nice size tip and the ink it dark and beautiful.  It flows soooo well.  I love them.  They are Zebra Z grip Flight pens.  Very nice and a definite new favorite!  Now, let me tell you about the washi.  This is a brand I have bought before. I have bought a LOT of washi from this brand. It's some damn good quality washi.  It's usually a good value for the money, too.  Well..... I opened the envelope my stuff came in today and I thought there had to be a mistake.  The box that my washi came in was small enough to fit in my hand and it was a multi roll pack!  I took a few pictures to share:

This picture does not show how small these are.  I will now share another two pictures to give you an idea!

The roll on the left is a regular size roll of washi from the same brand.  Look at the one on the right!


20200327_200909

Here is the picture of the whole box of wash with two regular rolls on the outside.  

The washi is absolutely gorgeous, I just wish there were more of it!  There are ten rolls in all.  Two really wide ones, four regular widths, two smaller widths, and two of the mini width.

In case you want to see the pens, here is the box with one of these smooth writing bois!

Saturday again...

Well, my friend said we might walk today and I was looking forward to that.  We didn't walk.  D'oh!  Oh well!  I did some crafting.  I made a folder for my Foxy Fix and I modified the one I made last night.  I now have two cute handmade folders.  Both were made from file folders.  I used washi on both and some scrapbook sheets on the other.  I think they turned out quite nicely.

 


Happy Halloween!

Hello and Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain to you!  It did NOT feel like Halloween here today.  We were under weather warnings and it was in the low 80's!  It was a pretty weird day.  My friend called last night about me keeping the dogs this weekend and I had that on my mind as they would have come tonight.  I totally forgot my tradition of going to a cemetery on Halloween! :(  I realized it when it was too late to go.  I did go in my yard and collect some pretty fall leaves and pick up a few pecans.

My friend's mom is not going on the trip, so I am off the hook on pup sitting. Yay!  I love the pups, but NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow and I don't want any distractions!  I want to get into my story.  I also have to take down all my Halloween decorations. :(  I am going to miss them.  I have plenty I keep out year around, but these will be stored until next year.  I really should count all the items as I put them away and report in on how many I have.  I have a LOT of jack o lanterns.  I mean a LOT. lol

I got my first order today from Paper Issues.  They have some cute stuff and good prices, too!  I got a three pack of washi, a single roll of washi, and some colorful cardstock (for making TN insert covers).  The three pack of washi is pretty,  I bought it just for the striped washi, but I really like them all.  The single roll is so adorable! It's travel washi and it's just so damn cute!  I put all four in my bujo to take a picture to share.  I will be ordering from Paper Issues again.  Go check them out! Paper Issues

It's all there!

I finished the current puzzle today and all of  the pieces are there! Yay!  I also flipped it with no issues even though it was one of those that don't like to stay together well.  It's such a pretty picture, too!  That last bit at the bottom was slow going, but I got it done.

Today, I went ahead and took my window air conditioner out of the window.  I haven't had to use it in several days and I think I will be okay until the Spring.  I still have my fan in here.  It stays all year, so I always have a backup in case I need a little cool air.

I rearranged my desk area today too.  The desk sits in front of the window that the air conditioner is in.  I use the ledge of the window in the summer to put extra stuff on.  In the fall/winter, it doesn't work because the ledge is a lot smaller with the window down and the blinds in the way.  I really like how neat my desk looks. It's all ready for NaNoWriMo! Yay! 

Yesterday I mentioned the washi that got cancelled.  Well, after I posted to my blog, I went back on Etsy and found another roll that I liked.  It's not the same design, but it's cute.  I ordered it and it was sent today.  Well, she created the label today, so it might get sent Monday. lol

I got an unexpected win-fall.  What is weird, is I just saw something on Jetpens that I REALLY wanted but didn't have the money for.  Guess where I spent my money? :) . It was a payment from one of my survey sites and I didn't think I was going to get it.  I finished testing the stuff months ago and had figured it must not have been a payment included in testing the product.  Well, there was a payment and it came today.  I covered the item I wanted and an add on to it.  I was so happy! I'll share all that when it gets here.  For now, enjoy the puzzle.

Oooh washi and more!

So I was looking at someone's post last night where they ordered a set of Christmas washi.  I'm not a big fan of Christmas, but in the set there was a roll of Christmas light washi that was really cute!  I looked on Etsy and found a roll that I like and ordered it last night.  Of course I'll show it off when I get it. Well hell, never mind!  As I was typing this, I got an email from Etsy saying that may order had been cancelled!  The seller said she had a family emergency and had to cancel.  Darn! :(  

I got a good deal done on a new puzzle today.  I didn't get the whole sky part put in, but I will be able to fill that in easily tomorrow.  My eyes needed a break from it.  The sky is so pretty!

Good mail day!

I got my washi today and it's so pretty!  I also got my pen loop for my Leuchtturm.  My purse still hasn't shipped. Boo!  Here is some pictures of today's goodies:

The Starbucks cup didn't come in the mail. I went over there for that. :P . I played Starbucks for Life as I usually do. I won a bunch of stars and a I even won a free bakery item.  The coupon was running out today, so I went over there and got a cookie.  I also got a cascara latte while I was there.  They are almost out of cascara syrup.  Boo!  I'll miss it.  Hopefully they'd bring it back again.  


Hello

It wasn't sunny today, but it was warm.  It was around 60! It was pretty nice for walking.  I got in my walk and I was able to stop by the dollar store and get a few things I needed.  I also found a great smelling candle for .30!  It was in the holiday markdown stuff.  I wonder if they have any more. It smells so good. It's called Frosted Fir and smells like a fresh tree. 

I needed some tape, and I was hoping there would be some in the holiday markdown section, but no go. I got some in the regular section though, so that was okay.  I also got a package of copy paper as I was completely out.  Some of the pen pal letters I wrote last week were on green paper because I was out of my regular white sheets.

I didn't do much when I got home. I washed my hair and my bed linen. I've had a really bad headache, so doing other things was not an option.  I mainly just sat around. I played some Bingo on my iPad and watched The Simpsons on FXNow.  I love watching the episodes, but the commercials are driving me nuts.  They are mainly the same ones over and over and they are annoying as hell!  I just mute them when they come on!

Tomorrow, I should be receiving a pen loop for my Leuchtturm bullet journal and a new set of washi. It's from my favorite brand/company of washi. Molshine.  I love their washi.  This set is 10 rolls, I think.  It's so pretty from the pictures. The thing about their washi, is it's always better looking in person than in pictures. I love their washi!  I'll post pictures tomorrow.  

Oh! I also found another Fossil purse on ebay. ^^;;;;; I saw it, watched it, and then bought it all within five minutes. lol . I hope I love it in person as much as I did on the site.  That hasn't shipped yet, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.
