My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday and some Susan time at Starbucks finally.

It is Sunday of Labor Day weekend and I have some free time and that means Susan gets to go to Starbucks for a few hours and catch up on her blogs. Now I have been behind on my blogs for weeks, I use to do them the very next day but I really do like writing them as Susan which can mean a few days late as I am not Susan every day. the problem with this is you can get way behind if things don’t work right. My goal is to be all caught up by the end of the Holiday weekend. It was after 3 when I started getting ready my goal was to be to Starbucks by 4:30 as the one I go to is open till 8:30 and that would give me 4 hours. I was right on time as I was ready and out the door by 4:15 and it only takes a few minutes to get there. When I got there, I had to park out a way as they seemed really busy but a lot of people were sitting out front at the tables as it was a nice day out. I went in and they were still busy inside but there was 1 table open along the windows so I set my computer on it before going up to order. I like these tables as I can plug my computer in when I need to.

The lady at the counter greeted me and said it was good to see me again, she did have to ask my name which was okay as I haven’t been coming here as regular as I was for a while, I hope to fix that and start coming here on Sundays more regular. It really is a nice relaxing way to spend time on your computer. I got my drink and sat down and started working on my blog from Wednesday night’s dinner at Mothers Bistro, With that blog done and posted I moved on to some e-mails I was behind on. You don’t realize how things can pile up. With my e-mails all caught up it was on to Last night’s blog at the Escape. It is a lot easy doing a blog the next day when it is still fresh in your mind. I got this blog done but decided I would wait till the morning to post it as some people subscribe to my blog and get an e-mail when I post and I didn’t want to hit them twice so fast. I figured I could post in the morning before I go out, yes Monday Labor Day I have off and I have the morning free and so that means a little more Susan time and some shopping.

Now it was only about 6:30 so I had some time to just spend in the internet. Now last Saturday I was talking to Nicole at the Escape and I have been looking at home security cameras but was trying to figure out how to run the wires and she told me about one called Wyze you can get at Home Depot. They run off your Wi-Fi so no wires needed you just need to plug them in, they are indoor ones but I figured I could out them inside my windows looking out so I went to Home Depot’s web page to look at them, they are $36 and looked like they were pretty good and the Home Depot at Jantzen Beech had 60 of them so I decided I was going to go get couple and try them.

I left Starbucks and drove to Home Depot and went in now as Susan this is probably the place, I have gone the least as Susan but still fun. Now I had no idea where to look and Nicole told me her story about trying to find them in Home Depot so I found the first employee I could and asked him where they were. He told me the back corer so that is where I went. I found security lights but no cameras. I saw another employee coming out of the back room so I asked her and she said she new and took me over to where I was just looking. She called someone and as she waited for an answer we walked up to the middle of the store and found the Ring doorbells and cameras but still not the Wyze. About this time the first man I asked came over, he was the one she called. He also thought they would be here. So, Marry the female employee said she would go get handheld and find out how many they had and where they were. The other man stood there for a while with me and showed me how they worked, he got one at his home to test it and said they worked really well. Marry came back and confirmed what I had told her that they had 60 of them. She said we should walk up front and see if they were up there as most are in a locked area up front as they are small and easy to steal. The lady upfront wasn’t sure what we were talking about but opened up the area for us to look and still now luck. I was explaining about them and she asked if they were really small and I said yes and that made the difference. She slid the other side open and on the floor was a 4-gallon bucket with a bunch of little square boxes about 3 inches by 3 inch and that was them. I told them I wanted 2 and as it turns out I was right next to the self-checkout so it was easy to pay for them. Now I will say the people here were great and really worked to find what I wanted especially Marry. So, now it was home to set them up.

On the way home I did stop by the Subway by my house and got a sandwich to take home as I have not eaten yet. I got home and went to set them up. Now the instructions you get with it are not that good but you can go to YouTube and there is a 2 minute video that walks you through it and yes it really is that easy. You can view live on your smartphone and you get 14 days’ worth of cloud storage plus they have a memory chip in them also that you can go back and look at. They really are great little cameras and even have night vision and 2-way audio so you can hear people in your house and talk to them. Have not had time to figure that out yet but so far, I am impressed. I can now see what is out front of my house before I come home. Thanks, Nicole, for the tip. You can also take this with you and set up anyplace you have Wi-Fi so I am thinking you could take it on vacation and set up in your hotel room.

It was a fun relaxing Sunday for Susan. thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new.

  1. I am going to take a look at those cameras. My wife gets worried when we leave our condo for any length of time. The area mostly is safe, but sometimes sketchy stuff happens. There was a shooting a couple of months ago at the other end of the complex, so it’s definitely not a crime-free area.
