Awww Monday and Sparks - March 26, 2018

 I know...once again it's been a few days between posts.  I sincerely hope everyone hasn't given up on me. 
Last week I celebrated my birthday (First Day of Spring) - It was actually sunny here and 60 some degrees that day so I was happy about that.

I had bowling that morning (League) and it was the "Roll-Off" between the winners of the first half & the winners of the second half.  My team won the first half.  I hate being in roll-off's, too much pressure.  Having to do it on your birthday isn't cool at all. 

Things were going pretty decent until a group of middle school kids showed up to bowl.  They were noisy and obnoxious and I lost my sense of concentration.  Then our lane broke down and we had to switch lanes, another thing that really annoys me.  So needless to say I didn't really enjoy the bowling and my team ended up only winning 1 game.  Still 2nd place over all isn't bad.

Anyway today I'm sharing with:


Good words of advice and ones that I am still struggling to follow but getting there.

 Have a great week & enjoy life!

  2. Happy belated birthday, dear Ida. It's been some 40 years since I bowled, but I really enjoyed it!

  3. i wish i could follow the instructions on that bunny photo, lighten up is not in my vocabulary. congrats on one win. i never could bowl, no one wanted me on their team, i killed their scores with my bad ones, as mostly in the gutter.

  4. Good advice!! Thank you! Wishing you a wonderful week!

  5. Happy belated birthday. We could have celebrated together. Mine was the 21st. I like the quote and it's something I need to work on.

  6. A Spark with great advice. Hope your week is improving.

  7. This quote is really good. I really have nothing against teenagers. BUT whenever they get together in a group, especially boys, they kid of take a place over. Especially swimming pools and bowling. A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  16. I love your Spark and agree that those are hard words to follow! It's a good thing we all get do-overs every morning. And, I want to wish you a belated Happy Birth Day! Our spring has been a bit of a slow starter. Temps anywhere between 40-60.....but Sunday it's suppose to be 38 and snowy!! Yikes! I hope you and yours have happy and blessed Easter. xoxo

  17. Hi Ida! Congrats on the second place finish, and Happy Birthday!
    Hope you have a nice Easter Sunday.
