    Morning Wake-Up Readings 2017

    My reading this morning was 110 which was I think too high. All day I only had an English muffin, a half of a roast beef sandwich, and a cup of frozen fruit (8g carbs). From the carol sing yesterday at Mystic Seaport (after the carol sing I had to take inventory of my toes,fingers, nose,and ears. It wasn't that cold but standing for an hour in the snow and with a wind blowing off the water my extremities got pretty cold)

    I just realized that I didn't post my reading this morning, it was 116. We are in "Panic Mode" it snowing and the television stations are in their glory. They pre-emptied there regular programming and have border to border coverage... "It's snow here, over to Bob..." "It is also snowing here, we must have all of an inch on the ground!." One station have what they call "The Snow Monster" that they drive all around the state. They have to justify the big bucks they spend on tech. Meanwhile the people are saying this is New England! 3 to 4 inches is a dusting for us. When I was little and we had a snow day, the local stations used to show cartoons or kids movies; now it reporters standing out in the snow telling us it is snowing..

    Morning Wake-Up Readings 2017

    88 Last night was the battle of the carpenter ants. Out of nowhere I smashed about 10 of the little buggers. I guess they were "scouts" out looking for moisture because I found single ones all over my bonus room where I was. Bug company is coming Monday. Carpenter ants aren't a good sign. They're like termites. I've had them before at another house. Meeting my female friend at noon today to hang out for a few hours. This seems to be going somewhere although very slowly since she's so busy with work and being a single mom to a troubled teenager. Better than nothing I suppose.

    A 77 (4.28) for me today. Well, it's still snowing, albeit, not very hard. Yesterday, I got my tractor out with the snowblower attachment ready to go, and cleaned off my driveway, then cleaned off my cars. It seemed like a waste of time, because when I went to pull the tractor into my garage, the driveway was covered with snow again. I prefer to wait until it stops snowing, but if I do, my neighbor will come over with his tractor (the same one as mine) and clear off my driveway for me.(he doesn't have a snowblower attachment, he has a snow blade to plow the snow.) I looked outside today and it was still snowing so I went back to bed. When I finally got up, it was still snowing, but my neighbor had plowed my driveway again. Some weeks ago, I sent him $50, and a thank you note, but he came over to my house and gave the money back, and said that while he appreciated it, he didn't want to take my money. I told him that I wanted to pay him for his time and gasoline, but he still wouldn't accept any money. He said that he doesn't do that for money, he does it to help out his neighbors.(he also plows out another neighbor's driveway.) I know what beer he likes, so I think I'll get him a couple of cases of beer. (he knows that I don't drink beer, so he can't give that back.)

    My reading this morning was 108 We had about 8 inches (20 cm) of wet sticky snow yesterday. Everything looks like somebody went crazy with spray insulation gun; snow is all stuck on the east side of the homes and trees. A lot of areas in the state without power, so of them just got their power back from last week's storm only to lose it again. I was lucky that my lights only flickered during both storms. We also had Thundersnow, which is lighting while it was snowing, the storm was so intense that it was like a snowy thunderstorm.

    So what happened to everybody

    I just have one thing to add. If you would like to see more content in the forums of interest to you, create it! If you'd like to see discussions on exercise, or medications, the pros and cons of a new insulin pump, various complications, etc, create it! Ask people their opinions, or their experiences. Tell people about yours. Conversations can't start if someone doesn't actively start them. Its not fair to blame others for not being psychic and handing you exactly what you want.

    101 or 89; took twice. Still tired from shoveling yesterday but back out there now. It's so beautiful though. Wishing I could just stay home, but somehow I didn't get out of work due to the snow even though the schools are closed.

    132 this morning immediately followed by 134. For no reason that I can think of! Unless it's the no sugar added pseudo fudgcicles (not the popsicle brand) that DH bought for me, which at 6.5 g carb each shouldn't have done that. I'll try one again at supper tonight and then tomorrow. If my a.m. readings are high again tomorrow and Sunday, I'll let DH have the rest. If I have an a.m. reading I'm the 130s due to something I ate the day before, it better be a really good something!

    Good Morning coffee companions. 6.8 yes I got into my good jeans & went shopping for test strips. It was only 33C / 91F so I decided to visit the mall before the heat arrives. The new pharamacist put his wrong password in 3 times so was locked out, & had to ask me for the price & accepted me telling him they are 60c each..$2.40 for the 4. Shopped heaps so caught a taxi home. He said he forgot to drop the flag so didnt know how much to charge so accepted the $15 when I said its usually $15 to $20, saying he didnt want to rip me off. Thinking " everyone's honest", which reminded me they were same words a Brazilian used when I asked if he liked living in Australia. He'd delivered my groceries at christmas & I gave him a Happy Holiday card with $10 in it. That surprised him heaps, so i had to explain most Australians will give to all thats helped them throughout the year, its just that we do it at Christmas time. He replied that he'd only been in Australia 11 months & loved it and everyone is so honest. Anyway....I now have 198 strips.Tested 5 when I got home & 6.8 this morning.

    102 this morning. No exercise, sardines, cheese and a variety of nuts last night most likely contributed to that.

    98 this morning. I have to laugh at the weather reporting descriptions- so true. It is cold and snowy every winter here and we have all the equipment for snow removal, but it's still a mess when there is a bit of snow or when it's cold. Bursting pipes and car crashes everywhere. I guess it's just what happens with tons of people and cars in a place with constant freezing and thawing, etc. Hang in there everyone!

    107 this morning, it's an improvement at least. Made it to work today, missing my naps! We have about 2-1/2 inches of snow and ice on the ground, -5 for actual temp and a wind chill of -20. I bundled up, looked like a homeless woman but I was warm

    7 with my last test strip..this girl will have to go shopping. That train show was magnificent. I emailed SBS about buying a DVD but sadly they havnt produced it. The trip takes over 4 days & the televised bit was only about 18 hours. No music so that enhanced the experience just listening to the train. They reduced the cover emitting the nights & times at stations where passengers disembarked to go on day trips like to Nitmiluk National Park . Google images of Nitmiluk National Park & you too will be amazed. The colours seeped into my soul. The dawn sky turned the land into a colour parade as the train was coming through the Macdonnell Ranges The soil is red & the vegetation became purple with the train track white as was the tree trunks of the snow gum. I have a few Albert Namatjira prints stored away & now they will be hung again as he knew those colours. Perhaps I should just sell my house & become a nomad as Australia is worth seeing. Mrs.Gunn author of " We of the Never Never" wrote ... "A land that bewitches her people with strange spells and mysteries until they call sweet bitter and bitter sweet. We who have lived in it and loved it know that our hearts can never rest away from it."

    8 & thats my bad for consuming many frozen yogurt bars trying to stay cool. Yesterday was 43C/ 109F & today is 21C /70F..so now I'm cold & will have to find long sleeves. Sunday is my bigbutt day as I intend sitting on it all day watching TV. The train trip from right through the centre of Australia has been filmed & its entire journey will be on all day. They dont allow dogs in the carriages so I cant go on it. This is great viewing , the scenery is outstanding & that train is very nice. http://greatsouthernrail.com.au/trains/the-ghan

    85 this morning. Went to audition for "Oliver". My singing has apparently become stronger. Maybe the piano playing helped. My range was 1 1/2 octaves last year, now 2 (low G to G) plus a few notes.

    93 earlier this morning. Ahh city living... I had to get up and move my car for the street sweepers or get a ticket $$$$ so I pulled together all my laundry to take to my daughters to do. We do have w/d in my building, but I bought my daughter a really good pair that cleans so much better, then did errands, came back and put the load in the dryer. Then time for a run. I sure seeming busy for not doing much.
