Cardio day!

So it was cardio day on the workout calendar.  I didn't do my workouts today.  I did walk though.  I also cleaned and did a lot of other stuff that could be considered cardio so I'm good lol . I had a lot of things to do today that certainly got me moving. I have been organizing things and moving things around in my room.  My bed has an issue where sometimes the box spring falls through the frame.  I had to take the mattress off the bed and get the box spring back in place and then tighten the bolts on the bed so hopefully it won't do it again.  That is an entire cardio workout on it's own! LOL!  I also went to Target today and got a few of those under the bed boxes to organize more stuff and keep it out of the way and clean!

I did a bit of painting in my closet and also touched up a few things in my room that needed it. I have a trunk and my nightstand painted the same color, so I fixed a few spots on those while I had the paint out.  I got so much done today!  I was good, too.  I went to Target and didn't go in the Starbucks there.  Well, I did go over there but it was to look at a pretty blue tumbler. I didn't get anything.  I even drove by the regular Starbucks and didn't go.  Now I'm wishing I had. LOL Oh well.

I am probably going to go back for that tumbler.  I haven't seen one in a while that I like so much.  Since it's something I collect, and it's my favorite color, it's got to be added to my collection. ^_^ . I'm pretty sure it's grande size as it looks like my white one that I got last year.  

DOH! I just got a notification from Duolingo about my French.  I usually do my lesson after my workouts in the afternoon, but since I didn't do my workouts today, I didn't do my French. I'll go do that as soon as I finish typing this up!  I'll do a post tomorrow about my new phone and how I'm liking it. I would do that tonight, but this is already a long post and I want to do a post just to it.  Look for that tomorrow! ^_^


Oops!

Sorry about yesterday.  I fully meant to post to to my blog and then Pocket Camp happened. lol . It was the last day of the gardening event and I was busy trying to finish it up at the last minute.  I was able to finish so that was good.  It wasn't until after midnight last night that I realized I had never posted to my blog.  Oops! I even had the Macbook Pro on my bed so I could do my post.  

I walked and did my workouts yesterday and I also went to Starbucks!  I had to get two things to finish a star dash I was in.  I did that and then got my stars.  I walked and did my workouts today, too.  I also went to the recycle center and got myself a frappe at McDonald's while I was out.  I came home and mowed the front lawn.  I planned to do it yesterday, but a storm came up and it was pouring rain.  Can't mow in those conditions!  I got the front done today and I need to do part of the back, but I have a migraine.  I'm in my room with only the lights that are strung on my bed frame and a candle for light.  I have the brightness on the MBP at the lowest level.  I had a migraine last night too.  I need to figure out what is triggering them.  I hate them.  I get them a lot where it's more being sick on my stomach.  The last two days it's been the sick on my stomach and my head is very unhappy!  Sitting in the partial dark does help.  

 


Rest day

Yeah, I didn't walk or do my workouts today.  I would use the treadmill and get my steps in, but my friend still hasn't gotten the key that makes it start.  I would have gone later this afternoon, but I had to run out in my car and do errands and it's ridiculously hot out there.  I didn't want to walk and get even hotter. I needed to mow the front lawn, but I put it off too.  If had only had to go out once in this heat, I might have done the lawn.  Oh well.

I didn't walk today, but I did write 8 letters!  I got them all ready to go and drove to the post office and mailed them.  I checked my box and I had two more. ^_^ . At home, my Otterbox case for my phone came.  I had a case that I bought the day I got the phone at Target, but it didn't completely protect it.  I took it back and used a wallet type case until this came.  The wallet case fit my LG but it worked for the Samsung.  I just used to to protect it until I could get a better case.  The Otterbox is two toned blue.  I had a two tones pink Otterbox on the LG.  I liked that case and it protected my phone several times when I dropped it. I found this one on Amazon and I had a $10 gift card so I only paid $16 for it shipped.  Since the case is blue, I wish more than ever I could have gotten the blue Galaxy instead of the purple.  Oh well! I love purple, but blue is my favorite color.  

I plan to walk and do my workouts tomorrow and go right back to my normal routine.  I should have walked today, but it was nice to take a break.  It was so hot out there that I'm sort of glad I didn't go!

 


Sleep, what is that!?

I had a bad night last night. I couldn't get sleepy and when I finally did lie down and try to sleep it took a long time.  I woke up cranky and out of sorts today.  I still walked and did all my other things I usually do.  I took a couple of pictures to share.  One was during my walk and one was later this evening when I went to the grocery store to get a few things I needed.  The camera is pretty darn nice!

Good grief....

Well, I got in my walk and workouts today.  I also got my new phone.  I got .... a ... Samsung Galaxy S9. LOL!  Yeah, I said I didn't want a Samsung, but it was available, I was able to get it today, and it's pretty nice.  I think I really like it.  I'll know for sure in a few days.  I already have all my stuff transferred over.  It's pretty cool so far.  We'll see how I feel in a few days.

I didn't get to my letters today.  I meant to, but after everything else, I didn't get a chance. It's a bit too late to start them now.  I'll try my best to get them done tomorrow. I've felt kind of bleh all day.  I SO did NOT want to walk today but I went anyway.  I wanted to skip my workouts too, but I didn't.  I haven't done my French yet, but I'll do that after I finish this post.  I've spent the majority of the day setting up my phone and getting it like I want it.  I was lucky to save the APK of a few apps that are no longer in the Play store.  They are now on my new phone. ^_^ . The screen is bigger than my old phone, but the phone is the same size.  I like that.  I did not want a huge phone!  The camera is pretty damn nice.  I've only taken pictures inside because of how late I got everything set up, but those are nice!  I'll take one to show:

The colors and lighting are better than any of my old phones.  I think I'll like the camera.  I'll definitely take some pictures outside tomorrow.  So far, so good.


Wednesday again.

At least I think its Wednesday.  I didn't sleep well last night and I've been sort of out of it today. lol . My walk was horribly hot.  I forgot to carry a wash cloth with me.  I usually carry one on really hot days to wipe sweat off.  I was dripping.  It was pretty gross.  I got home and rested for a bit.  I noticed that it started to cloud up some.  When I was getting ready to do my workouts, it started pouring rain and a storm came up.  The lights blinked once, but they didn't go out.  I was able to get my workouts in and done without any issues.  Well, except for being hot! LOL! 

I didn't go to Starbucks today .... well... I did... sort of!  I went to Target to pick up a few things I needed.  Of course it was Target and  spent a lot more than I planned!  I went to the Starbucks in there and looked to see if they had any giftcards I didn't have.  They did!  They have the 'welcome back' cards for back to school. I picked up a few to add to my collection.  I went to Target to get a set of Mildliners as they carry them now.  Well, some Target stores carry them, mine doesn't. I'll find them eventually.  I looked at a Target when I was at the beach and they didn't have them either.  

I looked at the phone selection while I was in there.  They have a lot of iPhones and a lot of Samsungs.  I still don't want either. lol . The Samsung Galaxy S9 wasn't bad looking, I just am not a huge fan of Samsung.  I came REALLY close to ordering a LG V30 last night from AT&T until it said that the taxes and upgrade charge would both be on my next bill.  That would almost make my bill twice as much as usual!  I'm still looking at the LGV30 and I'm also considering the Moto Z2 Force.  I had the Moto X and Moto X second edition and I loved them both.  Now I just have to decide if I want the Moto or the Lg or if I want to wait and see what else comes along.


Treadmill... well... sort of!

My friend came today and helped me get the treadmill from my car and into my house.  We set it up where I want to use it and plugged it in.  Then, he realized that the 'key' that you have to connect to use it wasn't there!  He'll look for it tomorrow when he goes back to the house where he got it.  Hopefully he'll find it. If not, it should be easy enough to order a spare online.  I was able to get the model number from it so I could download a pdf of the manual.  It's pretty nice.  I has two cup holders and a book holder.  I think I'm going to like it.  I just wish I could have tested it out! It was too big for my room, so I put it in another room.  I will have to get a fan for that room!  In the winter, I have extra space heaters, so that won't be a problem.  Now, I just need to get the key so I can test it out.

It was so hot on my walk today.  I had just started out and I thought to myself, "I've made a mistake." LOL . I went ahead and did my whole walk though.  The machine was still out of soda! :( I had just enough with me and with the added 50¢ that someone left in the machine that was empty.  I was able to get a bottled one at the hospital.  Luckily, I didn't have to go into the hospital  They have the drink and snack machines in between the automatic doors.  I don't need germs with my soda. :p

Tomorrow is double star day at Starbucks, so I might go and write my pen pal letters.  No, I still didn't do them today. :( I would have gone over there tonight, but I knew my friend was coming to help me move in the treadmill, so I didn't go.  I would like to go tomorrow as they was always my regular day.  We'll see.  If nothing else, I'll go and get one to go and come home and drink it and write my letters. ^_^

 


Desperation

I just downloaded the audiobook of Desperation from my local library!  I am so glad they have audiobooks along with ebooks.  I am going to start on it on tomorrow's walk.  I've already read it several times. It will be nice to listen to it as it's read by King himself!  It is pretty long so it should last for many days of walking. ^____^ . That is always good!

Yes, I walked today and did my workouts.  No, I didn't write pen pal letters.  I was going to Starbucks but it started to cloud up and we were under storm watches.  It never did anything! Phooey!  I did go out though. My friend asked me to come and pick up the treadmill he had for me.  I got it home and it's still in my car.  I can't move it in myself, so I'll have to wait until he can come and help me get it in.  I've got to clear a spot for it when I am not using it.

It will be nice to have on days where it's super hot, or icy, or raining.  I would always rather actually walk, but it will be nice to have this just in case.  It was extremely hot today and the drink machine I usually get a an of Coke from was sold out of everything! :( . The Pepsi machine next to it was out too!  I couldn't get anything and it was annoying.  We used to have a Coke plant here in the city, but they moved out not too long ago.  Since then, Coke hasn't been being filled in places like it should . It's a shame.  I really enjoy my daily can of Coke when I'm walking.  The hospital across the street from the machine I usually use has a bottle machine that usually has Cokes in it, but it's $1.65 whereas the cans are only 50¢!  

I still haven't decided on a phone yet.  They do have the LG V30 and the LG V35, but neither are in stores for me to go and look at.  I like my LG G5, and wouldn't mind another LG, but I like to actually look at the phone in person.  They also have a Moto that looks intriguing.  I've had two Motos before and I loved them both.  I will keep looking.  Maybe if I wait, something great will come out that I can get!

 


Sunday, Sunday

I walked today and it was so hot.  I am so done with summer.  Let's bring fall.  I want pumpkins, and colorful leaves, and hoodies!  I'm so ready.  I went to the post office today and picked up three pen pal letters.  I plan to sit down and write letters tomorrow night.  I meant to do it today, but I never got around to it.  I might even go over to Starbucks tomorrow night with my letters!  That would be nice.  If I can't get a table, I'll just have to come back home.  I've been wanting to go, but it's so hard to find a place to sit now.  I wish they had moved to a bigger location.  

I'm up for a new phone and I don't really like any of the ones they have available in store!  I might just order one online from my phone company.  They have plenty of iPhones and Samsungs.  I don't want either!  I really want a Pixel, but I'm with AT&T and the Pixel is at Verizon.  I don't want to change carriers.  I am going to research and decide on a phone soon.  I'll decide what I'm going to get and go ahead and order a case for whatever it is I decide to get.  I hope they have a great phone that I can get shipped.  I'm not going to go with Samsung. lol


More purse pics....

I was able to get out and take some pictures of my purse today.  Here are a couple: 20180804_154904
20180804_154904

It also has a clip on strap so it can be carried cross body.  It's so pretty.  I still can't seem to get a picture of the true color of it. lol . To me it's a deep rose color.  

It was sunny today as you can see in these pictures. I was able to walk without worrying about rain.  That was nice, but at the same time, it was really hot.  I came home and cooled off before doing my workouts.  I had to run out for a couple of errands and then came home and I've been here since.  I meant to go to the post office while I was out, but I never made it.  I am planning on writing letters tomorrow.  I might run those and drop them off tomorrow evening and pick up any new ones.  I think I have two or three waiting for me.
