Yet another beautiful day here,, I guess God wants us Michiganders to remember that we actually DO get good weather!
Not much here going on, still trying to get tractor battery charged,,still have to get to dads house to see why his lawn mower will not start either., DD tried both places yesterday, but when I got hoem from work, I was so exhausted, I did not even go out to the garage to see what was what.

today my blood sugar was one point lower than it has been since I started testing last week.. a slight progress, morning BP is back up again.. I do not give up, just try to do what I am told and keep on moving!! Just sitting here paying bills, making phone calls, little things that need to be done.
I am trying to be more aware of types of foods I am eating,, cannot figure out why my blood sugar is so high when I have not eaten in about ten-twelve hours and little or no carbs..
doc will see about it at the end of the month when I go back with my log..

    Carbs are the food of the brain so I was told to eat the complex carbs and nothing white or from a box. That was years before i was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic. These days i still use my tracker and I always eat before bed, Protein complex carbs. If I awaken early in the am I have the high BS of Dawn phenomenon.
The liver dumps so ancient man could have energy to fight the saber toothed tiger.
I hope you are able t get answers HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    if you don't eat, the brain sends a message to the liver to produce sugar.

I spent quite a bit of time reading others day plans yesterday, about their problems and setbacks,, I need ot do that, it keeps me humble, keeps me in self-check mode and makes me grateful.

I rose at four, took my BP it was the lowest it has been in a long time: 130/66!!!!!!!!! My log shows nothing under the 150;s for a long time,,

It is another beautiful day here in Mid Michigan. Tick-tock of the clock, cardinals, woodpeckers, finches, robins and mourning doves talking to each other.
Today DD and I are hopefully going to work in the yard. I want to power wash the deck and siding.
Time to put a couple coats of water proofing on that deck.
If I ever get another one, it will be a composite material, no maintenance!

    Finally you are catching some good weather. We went out of town just 30 miles and it was 71 degrees there as we left and the temperature was in middle 50's when we got home after supper. I was going to go outside but I was so weary and it was definitely too cold for me. HUGS LINDA, I am so glad your weather is getting better. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad you have great weather, we have lots of rain! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your comment was so very funny about the gate but that's no longer available. I wish we had a way to keep her safe but she's a women on the loose.

I hope you get a lot done today and have a great week!! emoticon emoticon

    I love all the birdsounds out here in the country. DH has birdhouses and feeders all around. I call him the birdie "landlord."
A few years ago we replaced our wooden deck with "trex" - a great decision.

I am up, still tired, but putzing around here, picking up little things here and there. papers strewn on countertops, mail to go through. bills to sort, organize and pay. DD still asleep, waiting for her dad to show up .
So far, it isa nice, sunny day.. we slept with our windows open! A far cry from last week with snow.
I am trying to be vigilant about taking an d logging my BP and BS every day. I test BS on rising, BP a.m and p.m.

Sitting here in the quiet that is early Saturday morning, all I hear is birds (mostly a big woodpecker in my front yard) and the pendulum of my clock. I love it.. time for some meditation to begin the day.
I hope everybody makes the most of this day!!

Hi LINDA thanks for writing on my Blog. emoticon
I must be like you, I LOVE the sound of ticking clocks and birds singing. I do not like TV but I do enjoy a NETflix movie with Dh now and then. He only watches in the evening, this is my Spark time.
HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Enjoy your SUNDAY!!! Pat !!

    It's important to take time for reflection and meditation.
After my week, I took a much needed nap today.

What a week, but I survived.
The inspection is over for another five months,, it was extremely hot since air filtration system was broken. I found out today that another, very young co-worker went home after almost passing out yesterday,, from the heat.
They repaired the HVAC today..
Made some $$$ selling pool pump and filter,, ex did not show up today,,
oh well, probably tomorrow.. don't care, trying to not get BP up.. Franny Flexible today.. listening to Brenda Lee and dreaming of poodle skirts and Grand Ole Opry...
