Weather Feed

Cold.... sooo cold.

So, today I checked my weather app as I always do in the mornings.  The temperature was 22 and it said it felt like half that!  I decided that today would be a good day to not walk. lol . I skipped my walk entirely.  It isn't supposed to be a lot warmer tomorrow, but at least it will be in the 30's! Hopefully it won't be too bad.  I plan to walk unless it rains.  I don't want to miss another day.

So far I haven't gotten anything from the seller on ebay.  They have the wrong purse back. They have never even sent a message.  If I don't hear anything by tomorrow afternoon, I will contact ebay again.  I went and investigated a little.  She had some listings when I first tried to contact her about the wrong item and now all of a sudden she has none. I don't understand why someone would build up great feedback for a long time and then just try to start screwing people over.

 


Sunday yet again.

My walk today was quite interesting.  Why? It was crazy windy out there.  It was cooler too, so that made it worse.  I was very glad to get home and out of that wind!  I did stop while on my walk at CVS.  I needed stamps, and I knew I could get a book of them there.  I got those and four boxes of clearance mini candy canes.  I love peppermint!  

I didn't go out again after I came home as the temperature was supposed to drop and the wind was still pretty bad.  It's supposed to get down in the teens tonight.  Yikes!  I hope it's warmer than that tomorrow when I walk! lol . 

My friend didn't get over here this weekend at all, so I still don't have hot water.  I had soooo many dishes to wash and I was trying to wait for the hot water.  I don't feel they get as clean in cold water.  I finally gave in and washed them today.  I couldn't wait any longer to wash them.  I was almost out of plates and I was totally out of forks. lol . I also washed my bed linen.  I just need to put that back on the bed and I'll be done for the day. 

I am trying to find an Apple pencil (1st generation) online for a low price, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen!  Apple has refurbished ones for $85.  I can't afford that either.  Maybe one day I can get one for less than $40 but I'm not holding my breath. lol . I would like one to use with my iPad mini.  

 


Sunday again....

I didn't forget to post yesterday, I just didn't do it.  It was a totally lazy day yesterday.  I didn't walk or do anything else either. I could have walked as it didn't start doing anything until later, but I just didn't.  I didn't walk today either,, but it was wet and gross today.  So much for the snow.  We got rain and some ice and that was about it.  

I have been a lazy lump today for sure.  I didn't even leave the house.  I did get my hair washed and my bed linen washed. I just need to put it back on the bed.  I am planning on getting back to walking tomorrow and getting back on track.  At least that is the plan. :p

My purse should FINALLY be delivered tomorrow.  Expedited shipping my ass!  I ordered it on the 5th and the seller didn't even create the label until the 9th and then didn't take it to the post office until the 10th.  Just in case, I went and took screen shots of the listing in case I get sent the 'wrong' thing.  I'm beginning to think that the seller meant to have it as a starting bid and not buy it now, but who knows.  Hopefully, it will be just like the pictures.  

 


Winter weather is coming.

It was very cold today.  I didn't walk.  I should have, but I knew it was going to be cold, so I didn't.  My friend wanted to go to our favorite local pizza place so I did go out.  It was just as cold as I thought it would be. BRR!  My friend got us both a pizza each.  He said it would be good to have in case we do get the bad weather.  I only ate two slices of mine, so I have a lot left.  I'll probably eat something else for dinner tonight and save the pizza for tomorrow and Sunday.

I realized that I might not walk tomorrow because of the cold again.  I needed to get my prescription.  That way, if it did get bad out there, I'd have my prescription and wouldn't have to worry about going out to get it in bad weather.  I think we are going to get more ice than snow. Boo!

I have a game on my iPad that I love. I'm pretty sure it's available on Android too. It's called Puzzle Page.  Every day there is a collection of games.  There are usually a word search and crossword.  There are also other types of puzzles. It's fun.  It's gotten me to try different puzzles that I might not have tried before.  I have been enjoying the Sudoku puzzles.  I'm still playing at easy level, but I've hoping to go to harder levels as I learn more.  Puzzle Pages is a lot of fun.  If you like puzzles, check it out!


Simpsons fun

So, I'm working my way through all of the Simpson's episodes on Fox Now.  It's been fun.  I love the animation in the old shows. You know, when they were still hand drawn.  I think it looked better than it does now.  They had more personality.  Oh well, I still enjoy the current shows.  I mean, I've only watched the show since it was a short on the Tracy Ullman show. 

Today's walk was even colder than yesterday.  At least it wasn't windy like yesterday.  I don't think I could have taken that!  I just checked the weather for tomorrow and it's supposed to be pretty much what it was today.  I'll bundle up again and I'll be okay.

 


Windy weather

Today's walk was quite a bit cooler than yesterday's.  It was also crazy windy too.  When I was coming back, it felt like it would have been faster and to turn around and let the wind blow me the other way. lol   I got through though and came home.

My friend came to try to get my pilot light lit on my water heater.  There was still some water down there and he didn't have his rubber boots, so he couldn't go down there.  Hopefully it will be fixed eventually.  I would like to have hot water for my dishes, at least!

 I was able to stop at the pharmacy and drop off my new insurance card.  I'm glad to have that done.  I think there should be a way to do all this online. It's 2019, not 1995! Sheesh!  Oh well.  I have been using this pharmacy for a year now since Kmart closed. I still don't like it.  If my car was always dependable, I'd transfer it somewhere else!

The temperature tomorrow isn't supposed to get up to 40 all day.  I hope it's not windy, too.  I'll walk, but I'll have to bundle up more. I'm trying not to miss any walks this week in case it does snow this weekend.  That could possibly keep me from walking for a few days.

 


Nice day!

It was quite nice on today's walk.  It was actually warm enough for short sleeves.  That was wonderful.  It's supposed to be cooler from here on out, so it was good to have a nice day.  They are actually calling for snow again this weekend.  I don't know if it will, but we'll see!

I new insurance card finally came today! I drove down to the post office to pick it up and check my box.  I got it and I also had four letters.  I'm glad my card finally came.  I'll run it by the pharmacy tomorrow on my walk.  I just need to remember to do that!

My purse STILL has not shipped. UGH. Expedited shipping my ass!  When I sell on ebay, I sent off the item as quickly as possible after payment.  Usually the same day.  I wish all sellers would do that!

I finished the first of my jigsaw puzzles last night.  The last little part was the hardest.  It was mainly green leaves and a few flowers. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I got it done.  I like to keep my puzzles once I do them.  When I was trying to flip it over to tape the back, part of it fell apart and I had to re-do that part.  It's all together now and taped so it's ready to keep.  I'll start the other puzzle in a day or two.


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.


Sunny again!!!!

It was actually sunny today!  It's been so long since it has been.  That was nice.  I stopped at the grocery store on the way home.  I forgot to get my granola bars the other day.  Luckily, they were 3/$5 today.  I got those and then, when I was checking out, I noticed that they had some candy bars on sale.  Oops! lol 

Most of the water is now out of my basement!  I turned the pump back on today before I left for my walk.  I went and checked on it at 9 tonight and it was still pumping water but it was a slow trickle.  I turned it off for the night and went down and checked.  The water is way down finally.  Yay! Hopefully my friend or I will be able to get the pilot lit soon.  I also hope to get the pump running so that it won't flood again.

 


Rain again

I swear it's never going to dry out here.  I decided to skip my walk today. I did not feel like holding the umbrella through the entire walk!  I just stayed in and stayed dry.  I did go out in the evening. My friend wanted to go to Roma and get pizza, so we did.  He ran me by the post office while we were out and I got a bunch of mail.  Quite a few pen pal letters and information from my newer insurance.  I didn't think any of that was ever going to come.   That is one less thing to stress about.

I realized today that I didn't get any granola bars when I went to the grocery store yesterday.  I usually get enough boxes to get me through the month. I eat one for breakfast everyday.  I will get them tomorrow.  They are two for five dollars this week, but for one day only, tomorrow, they are three for five dollars.  I'll get them on my way home from my walk.  Hopefully they'll have plenty. 

I started one of the jigsaw puzzles I got for myself.  The pieces are smaller than I'd prefer, but they aren't too bad.  Here is what I have so far:
