Today as planned I was to have the man come and fix my electric problem. I got up early because I had to check and see what breakers connected to all the receptacles that I was going to have fixed. Now it is 147 steps to go out to the deck and then back to the box in the garage and I did it about 10 times. 3 receptacles are tied into other places in the house and it is a night mare. I finally had them all off but also had the garage receptacles out and part of the kitchen. With the garage out it messed the television up so it was out. So the outside receptacles are connected with the garage, kitchen, bathroom, and closets in both bedrooms, and that is all I know of without turning everything off and on. Now isn't that crazy. If it was me doing the work I would have put all the outside electric on 1 breaker by their self.
After doing all the running I had dishes to do and just some straightening up so when my daughter, DGD and her friend came I could give them lunch in a clean area. I had everything cleaned in the kitchen and now I have a sink full again because I just made a meat loaf, bread sticks and cookies. But they will be done before I go to bed because I am getting tired of having dishes to do.
Well, everything was ready and I received a call from my daughter to let me know the man that was to do the work left her house Friday and she hasn't seen him or heard from him to know when he is coming back. I don't know what it is about the younger people but you can't depend on them at all and he could have called to let me know he wasn't coming. Now this is a guy that is not working and he could have picked up a few dollars today because I was going to pay him. I would have talked to him about coming and doing the odd jobs I need once in awhile and I would have paid him, not a lot but a decent pay. If it was me and I was out of work I would do everything I could get.
Well, since no one was coming I got the lights and tape together and put the lights around the outside garage doors. It was a little tedious because I had to stand on a chair and reach the top of the door. I got it done and was glad because I don't like climbing but it does look really nice. My electric bill is going to be a little high but hope not too much. After that I put a load of clothes on and had a call from the pharmacy to let me know my medicine could be picked up. While I had her I ordered my medicine for gout and that comes through the mail.
Then it was time for lunch and I ate and started my points page. I wanted to get a lot done because once I had dinner I had more I wanted to do. After about an hour I put the clothes in the dryer and hung up my jeans because I stretch them and air dry them. I don't put them outside in the sun either because that can ruin them. I stretch the legs every time because they shrink and I have long legs.
I started making bows for the candy canes and had to do 20 of them and then a strip to tie them to the cane. I did about 5 and then went out and put them on the canes and did that until I was done, Got more steps and didn't get cold staying out too long. It was nice out but I still work a light jacket.
I went around and turn the lights on in the house and plugged in any of the lines that connected to the outside lights. Then I went in the garage and tuned the lights on and then outside to the other garage and the front of the house. It takes about 10 minutes or more to turn everything on and lots of steps.
I fed the dogs and ate some turkey soup and then 2 small pieces of pizza about a little bigger than a playing card. Then I started making the meat loaf and I used deer meat, mushrooms, onions, dry peppers, stewed tomatoes, 2 eggs, garlic, and bread cubes, sharp shredded cheese. I had some bread sticks I put garlic on and some pull a part chocolate chip cookies I also baked. I folded the clothes and did dishes and then started the points again. Now I am finishing up my post and as usual it is getting late. Tomorrow I have things I want to do outside and get the rest of my nets off the arbors. If I get that done quick I might give Callie a bath and trim her. When I do that then I have to wash my hair so I can set it for Tuesday. I also got the things I bought yesterday to scand them and that was another thing finished.
I already have put things on the calendar that I am going to do after my days of bowling and 1 is defrost and straighten the freezer. I thought I was going to have time to do crafts, read and just do other things but I hardly have time to stop.
Well I think I have a few dishes to do and I am going to get a snack. Then it is time to go turn the lights off.
All have a good Monday off to work or volunteering or shopping. Have fun and be careful you don't overdue. God bless you and keep you safe.
Catch you tomorrow and hope I get time to relax.

This morning I heard little one moving around and I found her in the family room under a blanket. She got up a few minutes before me and I had turn the electric down because she was going to be leaving and the kitchen was warm. I had her go get her bath and she had to wash her hair so that had to be dried before we went out because it was 39 degrees. I got my shower and then set her breakfast out . Then I went and did my makeup and hair before I ate. First I dried her hair and then I ate so I could have everything ready when I was done. Finished and did the last minute things that come up and off we went.
She did really well the first game and got a spare and pins to go with it and ended with a 69. Second game she started with a spare but no pins with it and was doing okay but in the 5th and 6th she threw zero's so she ended with a 54 and series 123. Her average is 63 and they won all the games which is very good. The little firer ball that is on her team ended with a 23 his 1st game and 7 his 2nd with a 30 series. His average is 9 so he did good today. The other girl on the team bowled over her average both games, 45,61,series 106 and her average is 36. The other team had problems where 2 didn't get near their average and the other girl did hers once that is why they lost. This is the first time they have won in weeks so I was glad for them.
I packed a lunch for her to eat after bowling and she wanted to bowl another game but she barely got the last one done. Her arm hurt, she hit her leg with the ball, her eye hurt and she couldn't hear out of her right ear. Now I don't know what is what but her Mom is coming here tomorrow and she most likely will be here too. Then when it is quiet and I can do some checking I will find out what is what. I bought her the peanut butter that has the jelly in it and that is what she had with grapes, 2 cookies, and water. She was with me shopping so a few things went in that I don't buy but will keep for her. We went on our way to her home and she saw her Dad pull on the highway to go to work.
After I dropped her off I came home instead of stopping for some things I forgot. I can pick them up next week. Ate some of the tuna casserole for lunch and laid down which I hate but I was tired.
When I got up I washed dishes and straighten up the kitchen. Had more clothes to fold and put away so did that. Did some Spark points and then turned the lights on a little early so I wasn't out in the cold after dark.
I had things I could eat in the refrigerator but I wanted a pizza so I got the things out and made it. I make my own instead of buying and I use deer meat on it and that isn't so greasy. Mushrooms, onions, deer meat, mozzarella and extra sharp cheese. Not low cal but it was good and I will have 3 more meals out of it. Made it on a cookie sheet with one of the Pillsbury pizza doughs. Suppose to spray the pan but I didn't and it slide right off so save cals there.
Walking has taken a dive and I just looked at the pedometer and there is nothing, I guess the battery has died. I have just been getting between 6 and 10,000 no high amounts. I have been busy with the decorating and tomorrow the guy comes to fix the receptacles. Daughter and DGD will also be here and that means time gone and even Spark point time crunched.
All have a blessed Sunday with the Lord and family and friends. God bless you and keep you safe during your shopping and baking.
Catch you tomorrow with whatever comes up.
