    124 Weather here has been gorgeous all week. I might go over to the farmers market this morning. I haven't been since covid happened and I used to go every other week or so. Maybe a walk on the beach today too.

    121 The weather forecast for my little corner on Connecticut is light rain all day but the best part is that the temperature is going to be in the mid-40s (7C) for the next 3 days.

    7.3 & I cant explain that. Dinner was 20g although I slept soundly for 11 hours with just one bathroom visit. Maybe I dreamt of food beside mowing , doing a huge laundry & twice posted my fasting numbers, which inluded an image of a beautiful turtle.

    156 today, clouds creeping in again. Today I get my vaccine shot, people that I know had first and even second dose and had NO side effects. Hope it works for me the same way. 💉

    My reading this morning was 139. I got my second Moderna vaccination yesterday, no side effects other than a sore arm. No fever, no nausea, no chills, no swollen Lymph Nodes, nor any vomiting. Yes to tiredness but then I am always tired.

    A 65 (3.6) today. I'm in one of my glucose vs insulin cycles again. My wake up readings have been low, so I've been decreasing my nightly Lantus dose to try and get my readings up. I was taking 77 units of Lantus every night at around 11 pm. I'm now down to 54 units, and my readings are still too low. This happens all of the time, and it won't be long before I find the correct dose and my readings will be back in the 70's, then, my readings will slowly rise again, so I'll need to increase my dose again. This is why I get irritated when the doctor asks me how many units I take every night, as if the number of units is always the same.🙄

    159 today, and I have no side effects from my Moderna vaccination two days ago. They are vaccinating age 65+ here too, myself I just got a call from small pharmacy location asking if I want to get vaccinated and they have opening on 24th. I think my hubby was calling everybody to get me on the early list - our doctor, centers for vaccination, even our senator. His argument was that he is legally disabled and I am his only caretaker, and two days later I got the call to schedule vaccination and I took it. Hubby gets vaccinated tomorrow with 65+ group, he got email / text to schedule online and he did. Very organized here too, and not too many people.

    97 The singles and supplies were delivered to my new house yesterday. Finally, some activity. Should have a new roof my middle of next week. Now the closing is set for the 18th. Like throwing darts. I was really hoping I could get in there by the end of March and end my lease here a month early and have no rent or mortgage payment in April. Still might happen. The guy told me they were getting a lot more vaccinations in so he thought I'd be able to get it in the next month or two.

    138 Day 3 after "the shot" I have had no side effects other than a sore arm for my second Moderna vaccination. Here in Connecticut I went through VAMS to schedule my vaccinations (those who do not have access to the internet can call 411), after I created my account a map popped up with all the places around that offered vaccinations. When you clicked on a the location a calendar opened up showing the open dates and times, I clicked on a clinic in Middletown CT that showed the earliest opening. I selected that time, VAMS confirmed my appointment and had me print out a QR code. When I got to the clinic they checked my temperature, scanned the QR code, checked my driver license, and told me to sit over there. My butt had not even touched the chair when they called out my name. I got the shot, set the timer on my phone for 15 minutes and sat down to play a couple of wicked games of solitaire and left. Maybe that is why Connecticut is sixth in the nation for administering the shots. No fuss no muss.

    That's great Clint! Do you have an "Elmer" to help you with your exam? Once you pass the exam, do you have an idea of what equipment that you want to get for your station?

    92 today. I am on the wait list as I am considered an essential worker but it will be a while. We are back to less than 10 new cases per day on average so I will continue to exercise vigilance. I might still consider a mask after this. I noticed no one around me really got sick this winter with flu or colds.

    163 today, slightly elevated. No other side effects of covid vaccine injection, I've got Moderna. News about Lucky cairn - he was successfully adopted by a loving family, he got new collar, new dog bed in the home office and a new name "Geordi". I think new owners are trekkies

    My reading this morning was 128. Today starts the pothole season. When during the day the temperatures are above freezing but at night the temperatures drop below freezing causing prime conditions to grow potholes. Also it is prime weather for maple syrup harvesting, the change in temperatures is also great for tapping the maple trees. Connecticut while not a big producer of maple syrup, there are plenty of sugar shacks around. Of course being diabetic we only dream of pouring maple syrup on a stack buttery of blueberry pancakes. Sigh.

    7.3 It really is good to see you DF'ers are being & have been vaccinated. The US has more covid cases then our entire population, so I've been concerned for you. Oh no... I was just looking at the windowsill 2ft away ....as a tiny mouse ran along it. Theyre cute critters but I dont want them in my house. There always seems too be some unpleasant issue I have to deal with.

    6.8 After testing my wake up reading, had a big breakfast of roasted vegetables & toast. Then went back to bed for another 5hour sleep. Woke up with the same reading. I intend testing more often after hearing of an 80 yr olds traumatic experience. she's in rehab after having her leg amputated. Its bad enough for a young person to adjust but how is an 80yr old to manage? she'd been through extreme pain for many months trying to save the leg but it just got worse. It began with poor circulation. she wouldnt tell me what her A1c had been but it couldve been higher as she'd often scoff at my food choices. She'd also insist that she was type1 as she had to go on insulin. I'm sure I'd forget I had D if I didnt post here daily... & I need my legs, so that was a horrible wake up call for me.
