Another long day! :p

I was tempted to not walk today, but I did it anyway!  I was so tired when I got home.  I didn't sleep well last night and it was really hard on me during my walk.  I felt so tired and it felt like it took forever to get home!  I finally did, and then I sat and relaxed for a bit.  I didn't do my workouts at the regular time as I was so tired.

I ran over to Target and returned my wallet.  I did a few more errands while I was out and then came home.  I took a hot bath to soak away some of my soreness!  I finally did my workouts and then I did my French lesson.

My Sakura card came today.  It's so pretty! It even came with a gift card sleeve.  It's very nice.  



What a day!

So, I got up today and thought to myself that I might go to the trail to walk instead of walking from home.  I did just that.  When I was done, I drove over to Starbucks and got a caramel macchiato.  I had one last free drink on my card.  I got that and came home.  I relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.  It's stretch day and it felt good!  After I finished, I was trying to do my French when an friend called wanting me to go with her somewhere.  I didn't want to go, but I went.  While I was heading out with her, my other friend texted and wanted to go eat!  Since it was my usual lunch time, I told him to meet me at the gas station that we stopped at and I went with him. LOL  I think my other friend was miffed, but I told her I really needed to eat and I didn't want to go in the first place. :p

So, after my friend and I ate, he dropped me home.  I ran to the mall and looked in three different stores, one of them twice!  I was looking for a wallet.  Since the one I ordered was way too big.  I found one and brought it home, but the wrist strap on it was so loosely on there that it came off.  I carried it back and got my money back.  I looked but I didn't find another I liked.  I decided to check Target.  I was in there a LONG time before I finally picked one.  I brought it home and realized it wouldn't work, so it goes back tomorrow. lol  

After all that, I stopped the the grocery store and got some milk and came home.  I finally fixed dinner and ate it.  I'm so tired.  I'm going to crash before too much longer.  I have a load of clothes in the dryer, but I might must let them stay until tomorrow.  They are dry, so I can just run them for about ten minutes tomorrow and then take them out.  


I got the matching wallet for my purse today and this thing is HUGE.  I can't understand why they would make it so big.  I am not sure if I can even use it. LOL  Yeah, it's that big.  Here is it with my regular wallet as a comparison.  


Here is the inside.  I have it sitting on my Macbook to give you an idea of just how big this thing is!  


I'm not sure if I'm going to use it as a wallet.  It's so big, I have to adjust stuff to make it fit in my purse.  I still don't know why they made it so big.  I'm not sure what else to use it for.  I might could use it as a pencil case as it has two zipper pockets.  

Wednesday is Starbucks time.

Well, it was double star day today so, of course, I went to Starbucks. I'm all about those extra stars! :p  I went to the drive thru since I was over there later than usual.  I looked in as I drove by the front and there were plenty of seats. ~_~; Figures!  If I had gone to stay, I wouldn't have found a seat.  Oh well, I got my latte and it was pretty good.  I tried the blonde caramel latte.  It was pretty good, but nothing is as good as my cascara latte. :(  I miss that stuff.  Starbucks, if you are listening, BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!  

In other news, I walked today.  It was a bit overcast when I started, but the sun came out.  It's a good thing too.  I forgot my umbrella!  It rained during yesterday's walk and I went out with a friend yesterday evening, so I had my umbrella drying.  I forgot to put it in my backpack.  I was so happy when it didn't rain! :p

I did my workouts yesterday and today, I have been on schedule for everything.  A few days ago, I ordered the matching wallet to my new purse.  I can't wait to get it.  I've never had a  purse with a matching wallet.  I'll be so fancy. lol  I also ordered a Japanese Starbucks card yesterday on ebay.  It's a Sakara card and it's gorgeous!  I can't wait to get it.  Something cool to add to my collection. ^_^  I've always wanted some Sakura related from Starbucks so this was a no brainer.  I, of course, will share pictures when I get it.

Sorry about that post yesterday.  I was tired, frustrated, and just plain grumpy! It was just not a good idea to post to my blog when I was in that mood.  The rain yesterday was just depressing.  My friend wanted to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, so we did.  After I got home, I called another friend and she asked if I'd ride with her somewhere.  I did.  Her mom was in a car wreck yesterday.  Her truck is totaled.  They had to cut her out of it!  She is walking around today!  Amazing.  The woman is almost 70!  

I've been playing Pocket Camp.  I need TWO more of the navy ladybugs to get the Spring background.  Since I have until Saturday, I should be able to get it.  I just got the flower swing today.  There is one more thing to earn after the background, but if I get that, I'll be happy!  They also introduced new animals today! :)  The game is so fun.  Goldie is and always will be my favorite!

Monday mumbles...

Yeah, I didn't have an idea for a good title today! :p  I got in my walk today and came home and relaxed a bit.  I had some time between walking and doing my workouts.  I did those and it was hard!  My poor butt! It was booty day on the workout calendar! lol  

After I did those, I did my French and relaxed a bit more before fixing lunch.  I hadn't had a good tub soak in a while, so I did that after eating.  I am now typing this up and trying to decide what I want to do now.  I'm not sure if I want to read, play Pocket Camp, take a nap, or write letters!  Knowing me, I'll end up doing, nothing at all. :P  It's been one of those days.

I'm one tired puppy!

So, I got in my walk and came home and relaxed for a bit before doing my workouts.  I was almost done with them when a friend called and wanted me to go somewhere with her.  I wanted to finish my workouts, so I said no.  I got my workout done and then my French and called her back.  She still wanted to go, so I decided to go too.  We went to Martinsville, Virginia which is not very far away for her to go to Belk and look at purses.  She didn't get the one she went for, but she got two others!  I on the other hand didn't go to look at purses and ended up with one.  I absolutely LOVE it.  It's a Lily Bloom.  I've never had one or even seen one before.  They are made from recycled plastic bottles and they have adorable designs.  Mine has cupcakes and coffee! :D  It's brown with colorful cupcakes and coffee cups on it.  The inside is bright green and it's gorgeous.  I'll share a few pictures:


Did I mention that I got it on sale?  Two discounts. Whee! So, after we finally got out of Belk, it took her forever to decide!  We went to Jerry's pizza.  It's a place in Martinsville that I've been to once before a long time ago.  They have remodeled since I went and it's pretty nice.  We shared a pizza and then went by McDonald's for caramel macchiatos.  We were in the drive thru for twenty minutes AFTER we ordered!  We finally got our coffees and headed home.  They were not very good. :(  I was disappointed!

We got back to town and I went to her house for a bit to see Cocoa, her mini Doxie whom I love!  Her son wanted something from Burger King so we rode down there.  While we were out, I got her to run me by Starbucks. LOL I had to get some good coffee to cancel out the bad coffee. :p  I got a tall blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious!  I came home and washed my hair. I'm drying it now and then I'll put my bed linen back on the bed.  I need to play some Pocket Camp as I haven't had a chance since this morning.  

Sunny Saturday

Yes, it was sunny today and it was nice.  It wasn't cold, but it wasn't really warm either.  It was in the low fifties.  Not bad at all for walking.  I got in a good walk.  It was not windy like it was yesterday.  I stopped at the pharmacy on my walk but my prescription wasn't ready, so I had to go back later.  I came home from my walk and did my workouts, I had lunch, and then headed to the pharmacy.  I got my prescriptions and then went to the post office.  I had planned to write pen pal letters tonight, so I wanted to check my box and see if I had any new ones.  I did!  

I came home and then realized I wanted some coffee. I wanted a latte, and I didn't want to drive all the way over to Starbucks, so I thought I'd give the coffee drinks at Sheetz a try.  I went and ordered a caramel latte. It was pretty tasty. Not as good as Starbucks by a long shot, but not bad.  I got home and put away some laundry that I washed yesterday.  I then realized I needed a few things from the grocery store.  I had gone to the store last night and got my groceries, but I forgot to pick up a few things.  I went and got those and then came back home.  I wrote quite a few pen pal letters and I'll get those in envelopes and ready to go tomorrow. I'll drop them in a box along my walk.  I don't usually walk as far as the post office anymore, so I figured I'd check my box today.  I'll mail the ones I wrote tonight and I may go to Starbucks tomorrow to write the ones that came today or I may wait and go one day with week.  I may just go get a latte and come home and do them.  Who knows!?

I need to get up and fix dinner, I'm just being lazy and not wanting to move at the moment.  I have plenty of goodies to choose from since I've been grocery shopping. I just have to decide what I want to fix!  I have lots of good frozen dinners, sandwich stuff, and other things.  I have almost too much to choose from! :p  I'll figure out something and then fix that.  I'll then get my letters ready to go for tomorrow. I don't have any other plans for tonight except to read and play some Pocket Camp!  I finished the first half of the event that is going on, so I'm glad of that.  I am not sure when the second half starts, but it's probably soon!  

Morning Starbucks!

So, we are under a severe wind advisory until tomorrow at about 11 am.  When I first woke up this morning, the power was out.  It was still out when I actually got up.  No power means my Keurig won't work.  OH NO!!!!!!!  I needed a boost, and I waited awhile and still no power.  I dressed and went to Starbucks!  I had a free drink on my card, so I got a venti blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious.  Not as good as my beloved Cascara, but it was good.  I also got a multigrain bagel for my breakfast.  It was a good breakfast.  

I came back home and noticed a utility worker in the neighborhood working on the pole.  I was home a little while and then the power came back.  Yay!  I am hoping it doesn't go out again, but the wind is still crazy, so it might.  The wind was so powerful that when I was driving back from Starbucks, my car actually MOVED to the right a bit.  I decided that even though the sky was  clear and beautiful, I was not walking today!  Too many chances to get hit my falling tree branches or flying debris.  I hate to miss a walk on a pretty day like that, but I'd rather be safe!

I just had my afternoon coffee.  The cup I usually have after getting home from my walk.  I am going to do my workouts at some point.  Not sure exactly when.  It's stretch day, so they don't take as long as there are less of them.  I am sitting at my desk looking out my window as I'm posting.  My neighbors wind chimes are going nuts across the street.  I bet it sounds pretty nice out there.  I bet my own wind chimes are moving around on my porch too.

Yeah, this post is all over the place. lol  Sorry.  I woke up tired and with a headache, so I'm seriously considering taking a quick nap!  I probably won't be able to sleep though.  Plus, if I get in a good nap, I won't sleep well tonight.  I guess I'll just watch more episodes of Forensic Factor on Hulu.  I'm almost done with the episodes they have.  

What a day!

So, I mentioned that it rained on my walk yesterday.  Well, that was nothing compared to today!  It rained a lot on today's walk and I had to use the umbrella for the entire walk.  It wasn't the kind of rain that fell straight either! lol  My arm, my belt bag, my back pack, and my shoes were wet when I got home.  I was so tired and my right knee was really hurting when I got here so I didn't do my workouts.  I was lying on the bed trying to get  comfy and take a nap.  My knee was against this idea!  I read and just played some Pocket Camp.  My friend had mentioned us going to eat, so I agreed to that.

We went to a place we haven't tried before.  It's a local restaurant that was very good.  They have 'country cooking'.  I got a pork tenderloin with gravy and mashed potatoes.  Delicious!  My friend got spaghetti and he said it was great, too.  They have good coffee. :p  I rode with him after that to get a hard drive.  We went to Office Max and then to Target at my suggestion.  He found what he needed and then ran to get himself a shake.  He took me by McDonald's and got me a Frappe.  I haven't had one in forever.  It was good!

I came home and did my workouts, finally.  I finished those and relaxed a bit before fixing dinner.  I am now typing this up and getting ready to get on my bed and read and play more Pocket Camp.  I started on one of the true crime books last night and it's very good.  I was up until after 3am reading. Oops!
