Of course today started real early because I had to have DGD to the bowling alley at 9 AM, therefore I had to get ready and then find my way out of my road. Remember me telling you our road was closed, well still is and the next road and had to drive at least 15 miles out of my way just to get on the highway I would have started at. Then drive to my daughters which is about 15 or more miles from me. I picked DGD up and we made it to the bowling ally about 9:10 AM so wasn't too bad and we where the only ones there outside of the help. Finally bowling started and she did really well had a spare in the first game which was 69 and 2 strikes and 1 spare for a 80 with a series of 149 so her average is 77. She was put on another team and 1 person didn't show up and the other is a 5 year old and we where cheering him on. At first he couldn't get the bowl 2 foot on the lane and by the end that ball would go all the way to the pins and go in the gutter. He is just a tiny little boy and cute as a button. With DGD 2 years older, she stands over him, he gets to her waist. He ended with a zero. The other team has a vacant spot so they got 75 points and 1 of there people didn't show either. The only thing that can help little one win is they will have a great handicap. It is going to be interesting to see. I love to watch the little ones start at 5 and they have to use a 6 pound ball. It would be good if they started with a 4 pound ball when they are so little. After bowling we went to Big Lots for dog treats and tea bags because they have all kinds of herbal teas, I love it. Then we went to Friendly's and I was almost good. She had chicken strips, fries, sprite, ice cream sundae. I had a salad, 1/2 of a turkey club, raspberry tea, and a sundae. They are know for their ice cream and I don't do it often 1 or 2 times a year. I wanted to treat her because she had 2 A's 4 green tickets and did good in bowling so she needs to know we where proud of her. She doesn't get to go much with her parents and I try and make up for it. Not finding fought with them but I have the time not a lot of money but I don't take her out to eat a lot.
Then I took her home and I had to go to Sears because I wanted some dumbbells and kettlebell. I was looking on the internet in Sears and they had a good deal during the holiday but I wanted to see if they had things in the store. Well they had nothing, 1 kettlebell which was a 15 pound and I need a 20 to 25 pound. I also wanted a Julian's forget the last name but it was a set of 3 dumbbells with a DVD 3,5 and 8 pounds. If you bought the dumbbell separate which I could have saved but no DVD and they can cost more the the set. Ended getting them online anyway. I should have them by the 27th. My foot, hope will be better by that time and I am going to get back serious about exercising. After Sears I went to Dollar General for treats and other things, then the grocery store Save a Lot.
I had a talk with the owner because they are tying the grape and other fruit bags real tight and I lost 1/3 of cherries that cost $7.00 a bag. They mold and get crushed because they can't breathe and they rot. I had 2 containers of cottage cheese bad and it all cost too much to throw away. He said bring it back but how do you do that when you get the cherries and each time throw away 10 or more. He said people would take handfuls of the grapes and walk around the store eating them. I told him to tell them when they checked out he was charging them a 1/4 of a pound of grapes. Anymore bad food I am taking it back and if it is moldy that's the way it is. I won't loose anymore money on food. I had a cart filled with fresh fruits and veggies and little else. Came home and put the food away after I scanned it. Then I laid down for an hour just was exhausted.
Today was another sunshine day that I didn't get out in because it was an hour before dinner when I came home. Gone all day and next week when I take her to bowling I will not have to run around.
Going to close this out because it is long and getting late. Have a blessed Sunday with the Lord. God bless you always. Learn something new every day.
Catch you tomorrow hope to go to my friends house.

Today was a beautiful day, sunny, warm and breezy, perfect and I didn't get out in it much. Bowled again early and sleep didn't come easy so have to get use to getting up early 3 days of the week. Well, we did it again and won 3 games and total pins for 4. I bowled 123, 144, 135, series 402 and average 134. I have stayed consistent. My teams and I have started off with a bang and hope we can continue. We will be going up against some really high score bowlers. 1 was on another lane and all his scores where over 200 but then they don't get any handicap.
Came home and took the shoes off and the toe is still swollen and more black and blue than before. I guess being in the shoes and then on my feet a lot. I will take it easy for the rest of the week. Had a lot of fun and the gentleman that is on my team pre-bowl because he had to work but it rain and he didn't. He came in for a while and he is going to be a lot of fun to be on the team with. He is the one that I am bowling for the 2 months on the noon time team on Tuesday.
I made something to eat and took care of the dogs, little one decided to get up finally. After I ate I went and took out some bread, margarine and deer meat from the other freezer. Then I laid down for a couple of hours because I was really tired. I felt better when I got up. I made some mini meat loafs with the deer meat I took out to have for dinner. I made 4 and just did them in the fry pan but steamed them more than fry. Put them in and just got the bottom a little brown so I could turn them and then I covered them which steamed them. I made 5 and put 3 in the freezer, ate 1 and have 1 for later in the week. Trying to get the freezer down and I am finally so my daughter can come and help me rearrange it.
Hope tomorrow will be good but they keep saying rain and thunderstorms so we will see. If it is nice I am going to cut grass and then vacuum the pool and might get in it to do that. We shall see what the day brings and I have stopped eating all the junk. I even locked it up and then I brought it out because I have to have control and today I didn't eat it.
Now I am going to close and do some other work. All have a great Thursday and stay healthy and happy. God bless you dearly.
Catch you tomorrow with whatever.

Today was getting up early and not much sleep. Picked my friend up and I have to laugh because when I got her she didn't know if she was to bowl. Finally tonight I asked the owner if she was to bowl Wednesday and she doesn't She did bowl morning and night in fact she is on my daughters team. My toe made out find and I made sure I didn't land on the toes when you make your steps to the line to bowl.
We took 3 games in the morning league and we did better reaching our average we made 2 games and my scores where 136,150, 144, series 430 average 143
We took 4 games the afternoon league and everyone was having a hard time bowling as no one had more than 1 game on their average. 2 didn't get it at all and it was even on both teams I bowl 136,127,164 series 427 average 142
Have no ideal what we did tonight because 2 people still have to bowl. but we beat them with 400 or more on 2 games so they would have to bowl really well.
I bowled bad 145,128, 151, series 425 average 151. Hope next week it goes better but the lanes where the pits and if it was just 1 person having trouble but it was everyone. They have new pins so the bottoms a flat and they don't fall as easy. They have to get knocked around for a while to fall easier. The oil is another question because getting the ball to go where you want is crazy. Maybe the dampnes who know but I want my high games again. We had fun so that's what counts.
I didn't do much in exercise but I did get 5,583 steps today just with all the bowling.
My back is hurting and I am really tired so I am going to close. All have a great day tomorrow and God bless you.
Catch you tomorrow in the raindrops.
