Bowling is Good for the Soul…

Posted on: July 10, 2014

When Feeling Blue…

Getting out for some Bowling Is Just the Thing

To Help….


I opted for printed jogger pants for today’s Sporty Trend Look…

These pants really are so lightweight ,even on a day as hot as today…

Note the umbrella…

The  storm and high winds was just the thing to break the unbearable heat that descended upon us…


My guys have been teasing me lately about my upcoming birthday in September when I turn 49…

They keep saying I am getting very close to the half-century mark and calling me old…

I looked at this photo and thought, No problem, bring it on!  

I actually don’t fear aging , it’s a privledge my father who passed at the age of 42 never had…


I opted to put a pink tank under the Jones New York thrifted sweater…

These printed pants are F21 and always receive compliments… they may just be my favorite new item purchased this season..

White grasshopper slip -ons were my sporty shoe of choice today.. not so great for the rain in white, but they can be thrown in the washer….

I’ve been saying, I wanted a baseball cap , but didn’t want to spend the money on one…

Imagine my delight when I found this one at the Dollar Tree today…


 I loved walking around in comfy shoes and sporting a ball cap!   

I am having way too much fun with these sporty looks and can see so many other combos in my closet...

Tomorrow’s look is going to be all about Team Spirit…

Dear Readers,  Today was only the second time I’ve taken my niece bowling and her game improved so much! She actually scored two spares and a strike!   I was so happy for her and it was nice to see her put aside her sadness for a few hours today… I even heard a few real giggles…. Tonight she has Girl Scouts so that should help too….If you’re not a regular reader… both her dogs were hit by cars and killed a few days ago…

I went up from an 8lb bowling bowl to a 10lb today and loved it!  


Well of course , I am grateful for a fun day bowling and  a few moments of joy before reality settles back in and she had to return to the too quiet home…

I am grateful to my boys for being such great kindhearted young men…

I am grateful that my vertigo took a break, allowing me to bowl… but began messing up again late this afternoon…

I am grateful for discovering Zentangle as it really is “Yoga for your mind”  ,  a perfect hobby for anyone with ADD.

I love this sporty look and I think you look great. Never would have guessed you are turning 49. I am not afraid of aging either and joke with others as they tease me. It is part of life.
My heart goes out to your niece and she is in my prayers.

Thank you for your kind words and prayers… Glad to know others aren’t afraid of aging…
