Still kicking.

Someone asked about my silence. Nothing ominous, just life.

First the medical stuff: 2nd blood test shows up normal for blood sugars. Yippee!!!!! I usually have low blood sugar, so this was puzzling me. And trying to eat low carb was really causing major hunger pains. I was likely trying too hard and cutting out too much. But I will continue to be smart about food choices, just not fanatical.Still not sure about the elevated liver levels, but hopefully I will get some answers today after my Dr visit for that and G.E.R.D.

Family: Lots going on with the end of the year at school, so it’s keeping us busy. Just made 3 huge pans of Apple Crisp and served it with Ice Cream during the Middle School’s Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week today. Good thing I don’t have a lot left over. Apple Crisp is soooo not low carb!

Knitting: Still haven’t ripped out the TKG shawl. Hate it. Started another shawl, Maluka. It’s a border first style shawl with short rows above. The little “twist” along the top of the border is from pulling 3 sts over the first 3 sts on the needle. Hate that, but it’s only every 6th row, so I can live with it. Will make a few more repeats than the pattern calls for since I have more yarn than called for.

Reading: I am enjoying this more than anything right now. But I should be saving it for swimming season! Oh well. I didn’t use to ever slow down on the knitting during the warmer months, but now I seem to be doing that each year. At this point I have busted my goals of 12 shawls, although I could still pull it off. No way I will get 6 sweaters done, I haven’t even finished the 1st one! And 6 military donation items is unlikely too. Oh well, I will just knit what I want when I want. That’s the way it shold be.

OK, time to get ready for two days of Dr visits and to vote in our Primary today. I hope your day is going well!

P.S. Thanks Sandy for caring!!

A knitter, mom, wife and doodle lover!, but not necessarily in that order. Just ask my family, they'll tell you who comes first.

  1. Oh my, you certainly have been busy! Hang in there, soon things will calm down a little bit. Don’t forget to make a little bit of time to relax and recover : )

  2. Glad to see you are ok! I’ve been wondering where you were. I know what you mean by life getting in the way, it is a busy time of the year. I have a zoo trip with my youngest on Friday, wedding shower on Sat. and the list goes on and on. Be glad when it slows down a bit. I’m glad your blood sugar is good, hope that everything is ok with your liver. Keep us posted! (((HUGS)))
