Didn't have to pick my girlfriend up today so I went in a little later but was there in plenty of time. One of the guys on the team came in later then me. Well , we got started and started with a spare and then it was open frames till the 7th and I had a 77. then I marked the 8th to the 10th and ended with a 140 which was over my average. The next 2 games I couldn't make a spare for love or money. Could every so often throw a strike so I ended 2 below my average 140, 116, 125, series 381 and that is sad. The other team was in the same boat and none of them made a 400 series. Thank goodness the guy that was late bowled over his average every time and made a 504 series. During all this we ended up winning all the games so 4 for the mornng league.
I ate lunch between leagues and had chicken strips and french fries which I hardly ever eat but just had a taste for them. Ate 1 strips and about 6 fries and was done so I have the rest in the refrigerater. Now I am in the same bowling lane but you would think I wasn't. I started with a spare just like before and then I started throwing strikes and had 6 strikes, 2 spares, and 2 open with 204 in the end. I bowled 204,162, 141 and 507 series and we took 1 game and total pins. That is the first 200 and 500 I had on this team and now that I am a regular team member I can get in the different divisions. We took 2 games with this team.
I came home and made my daughters salads and then I laid down. I must have fallen asleep but the phone range and it was 4:30 pm and my cleaning lady was calling to tell me she was coming at 9:30 AM instead of later. I was going to get up at 5 so I just got up and fed the dogs and got myself ready to go back and bowl.
I ate some cottage cheese and jelly because I didn't want to waste time to fix something. Called my friend and went and picked her up.
My team members came and we had to bowl against some good bowlers. I started off and went in the same mode I was in, in the morning just could not make a spare and only had 3 marks ended with a 111, bad and then I got it together and the oil changed 158, 186 and series 455. We won 1 and we just missed by 7 pins the last game. So today 4, 2 and 1 so not too bad and bowling was good and bad so I will see what tomorrow will bring.
I have a kitchen that is a wreck and my steps are in need of repair to get back to 10,000 and above. I am going to work on that tomorrow and each day try to get time out to walk.
I only put on the inside lights because when I am gone I don't put them on outside. Have not been able to find the Nativity set I want so I am just going to wait until next year. I have enough for now and I will think about what else I want to do. I am thinking about making a sign and lighting it up around the letters. That will be one of my projects to do during the year.
Well have to close and want to get to bed a little early for tomorrow. Have to write out my grocery list. All have a great Wednesday and some fun. God bless you.
Catch you tomorrow with a smile.

Today of course it was 11 AM when I got up but that is just the way it is. Late to bed, late getting up but tomorrow it will be 8 AM to go bowling. I had my usual breakfast and started on the cabinet. Pulled everything out and you talk about a mix of things it was. Containers for parties, thermos, lunch boxes, drink bottles of all kinds, places mates for the table, a whole array of different kinds. I started to sort and throw away, to say the least it was a big job. I was working and I heard someone as the dogs did too. It was the UPS man and he delivered my weights and decorations. I brought them in and the weights where heavy because there are 2 weights of 3, 5 and 8 and that was 32 pounds that I picked up.
I opened it up and that was not easy but I got it done. I slide the weights and rack out of the box along with a lot of broken pieces. The box it came in was not beat up but the rack is not a real heavy material and they do not secure the weights on it or put any bubble plastic in to hold them so they move around and break the rack. I was a little upset because I have been waiting since September 10th for those weights. I called Sears and after 45 minutes they are going to send another set after they pick up this set so another couple of weeks wait.
I checked the other package and it was 2 of the wreaths the white one and green one. I also had a long red ribbon with lights. I got things together and took the peace sign down and put it on the deck and then put the ribbon between the 2 garage doors. I put the wreaths on either side of the garage doors and they look nice. I have 4 other things coming but they are on hold. I almost bought a set of Nativity but it is the plastic with the light inside but I really don't want that and it was over $200.00. I have to buy more extension cords to do more decorations.
After I finished putting the decorations up I went back to work in the kitchen. Today was back and forth and it took till 10:30PM to finish the kitchen cabinet. I also did a load of clothes and worked on other things too.
Had to stop so I could get my Spark points done and it is right down to the wirer.
Have to get my hair curled and then work on tomorrows points after 12 PM because I am not here to do it.
Have a fun Tuesday and don't work too hard. God bless you and eventually I will get back to my walking.
Catch you tomorrow with bowling.

Today I slept till 11:30 but I didn't get to bed till 2 AM. I am really trying to go to bed at 1 Am and up at 10AM. I have been able to do it a couple of times and I get up at 8AM 2 days a week for 2 weeks and 3 times at 8 AM 2 weeks. Trying to not take a nap in the afternoon too.
Today I started on the pantry closet and I 5 shelves and floor filled with food and containers, bags and whatever. Very top shelf is mostly containers for fruit, veggie cheese cracker trays for parties. I have the hot alumina containers and cake containers. I use to bake the cakes for peoples birthdays on one of the bowling teams. Then we have dinners and I need the containers for what I make. This Christmas I am making baked pineapple for one of the leagues. Took everything off the shelf and laid them aside because I put all the peanut butter, jelly and different cakes and fudge kits I have bought. Finished hat shelf and rested.
I went on the Spark points for an hour and got most of them done. Then I went back and did the next shelf which is the pasta, rice and those kinds of items. Next shelf is the baking shelf and that was easy. Next is the condiments,oil, ketchup etc and I have my different teas on that shelf too. All the shelves look really nice and a lot of space since I am using the top shelf for food too.
Now the floor has the ice cream maker and other things plus bags and a lot of things. Everything came out and I vacuum and scrubbed the floor. While that was drying I hit the cabinet that has all the party things, dishes, silverware napkins etc. On one of the leagues I am taking the dishes and such so I went through what I have and have started to put the bag together that I will take. I have almost every thing. The other league I am taking sodas. the big league that I subbed and turn regular is not having a party because the guys don't cook.
I went back and put things back in the pantry and I have my juices and sodas on the floor too. Plenty of room and I know everything I have. Now I will know what I have to pick up at the store and Italian dressing is on the list don't need anything else. I did the party shelf while I was hunting for what I needed. I have a circle shelf in the V of the cabinets and I worked on that some.
Tomorrow I am going to do the cabinet next to the party thing one. I will also finish the V shelves. Then I will vacuum few rooms and not do a whole lot so I don't get too tired for Tuesday bowling.
Have to vacuum the kitchen, utility room and 2 bathrooms tonight and do a few dishes, then I will be done for the day.
Little by little, day by day I will get things done and have the house the way I want.
All have a good work day and fun day Monday. God bless you all as always.
Catch you tomorrow, with love.
