    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    103 today. I was stung by a bee on the upper leg while cycling yesterday. I suspect my shorts offered some protection. It burned for about 5 minutes and then that was it. No redness or swelling, just some burning.

    136 today at 6:30am, I was working late and ate after midnight. @adiantum - I know what you mean, at our current place in Nebraska we happen to have nice neighbors. Guy on the left will come and clear our driveway of 2' snow drift knowing I will struggle with shovel for hours. Gal on the right brought us Christmas treats she made herself, I mostly share lily bulbs and begonia cuttings. Both neighbors have dogs, nobody is fuming that our pup barked once or twice. I very much would like to keep it this way

    83 today. I had a busy day yesterday. I spent the first half of the day with my son in law. We ran a 5K in the Hilo Heart Walk. The Heart Walk is a special event for me because it was the first walk I participated in when I started my new phase in life. We then rented a cargo van and moved a bunch if furniture into their house. He took me to lunch and we had a Bloody Mary. After lunch, I took him to my Kala's work place, hob-nobbed a bit, then went home. After getting home, I rode my bike 50K, went to the store. Found all kinds of vegetables on sale so those "couple of items" were a lie. Filled upi the panniers, stopped for a coffee, went home. Made a chicken, zucchini, cauliflower, and mushroom thing with alfredo sauce, ate, and that was about it.

    111 Yay...it's Friday again. When I went to Disney World last fall I was sound asleep the first night when I woke up to what I thought was an alarm clock. Then I realized it was the smoke alarm in my room. In addition there were dozens of alarms going off outside along with flashing strobe lights everywhere. Someone had broken a sprinkler head off in a room and we all lingered around outside with the fire department for 20 minutes. The good part was the next afternoon when I got back to my room there was an apology letter on the table along with two Mickey Mouse chocolate dipped rice krispy bars. I took them home to my daughter.

    I had one do the same thing at 2 AM. The smoke detector is right over my bed... I jumped up and down trying to figure out what all that noise was, when my brain finally woke up and I realized it was the smoke detector. The other fun art was trying to figure which of the 7 smoke detectors went off and why. The culprit turned out to be a spider in the basement detector I spied him coming out of it... he ended up being very flat.

    117 today. My marigolds and zinnias seed sprouted in like 24 hours on a new heat mat. Wow! I feel like God, creating new life - better go use my powers (while they last) on digging new flower bed

    92 here Have had a little drama lately. For about a month now we thought my mother had had a mild heart attack. Turns out she has not. Tests have come back. Her heart is strong, her arteries and similar are squeeky clean. She has, however, had long term high blood pressure that was never under good control. She wouldn't take the med consistently. Turns out that has caused some thickening on the left (or was it right) ventricle and between that and high blood pressure, it was causing her chest pain and weakness. Anyway, at the least this has been a wake up call for her to actually take her blood pressure pills consistently. Also they say a lot of this is being caused by high long term levels of anxiety and similar. My mother has always been one of those people who seems to ride high in this manor and that last 20 years with my brother, my Dad's death and everything that followed that, I am not surprised that she is dealing with anxiety. They prescribed her a benzo (clanazapam I think it was) to help with that. Now lets see if we can get her to actually take it consistently.

    116 for me today. Hope weather cooperates and I can do some lawn raking outside, I love doing it in cool weather (not so much when it gets warm). My tomato seedlings are about 12" tall, kiri peppers are growing, thai basil a little floppy but grows too, lemon grass sort of faded I think it needs to be seeded outside in full son. Starting giant marigolds today 🌱

    Today's reading was 107. There was an article in the New York Times about diabetes testing... A Diabetes Home Test Can Be a Waste of Time and Money Routine glucose monitoring may be unnecessary for people with Type 2 diabetes who are not on insulin. Some people are struggling to afford insulin, while others may be doing unnecessary blood sugar tests at home. I don't agree, testing every morning is a check for me to make sure I am still doing okay. Hint: if you hare having problems reading the article because of the firewall open in "Incognito" or "Private" in your browser.
