Hi Twiddle, It is nice to hear from you. I am so sorry that you are having a hard time controlling your blood glucose. That can make you feel really sick. Have you told your doctor about it? Maybe you should take more insulin. It is a problem though because then you might gain more weight. I have been having trouble with highs lately.
It is sunny out today and it gets really hot here too. I haven't been feeling that well either. When I can get my BGs down into the 100s I feel better but that is hard to do and sometimes it gets up to 3 or 400 and I feel terrible. I have been swimming to help with exercise. How are the cats doing. I have one named Zen and she is black with a little white. The cicadas are singing at this time of year and they sound really nice. In spite of the heat we have had a lot of rain this year and that makes it very humid. I will be glad when autumn comes. It is my favorite time of year. Only need to get through August here and September is nice because it cools off quite a bit. I am looking forward to all the fall festivals that we have here that celebrate the change of seasons. Summer is not my favorite because I get too hot. I hope that you feel better. Any ideas for blogs? You always spice things up. Take care. It is nice to hear from you.
Ellen

Hi Twiddle, Where have you been? It is time for you to write another blog.. We need to know how you are doing. I swear that I can feel fall in the air even though early fall is more than a month away. I just ate a fresh tomato from the garden. Tomatoes taste so much better when they are home grown. It was my first big one this year.
I have been to the swimming pool today. It was beautiful and I stayed there for three hours. I got quite a tan built up.
How are you feeling this summer. Is it hot in the Shire this year. How are the cats and your angel? How are the kids and the grandchildren coming along. I hope your health is going okay. Are you still trying to lose weight. I lost a bunch and it feels a lot easier to do things now. My health is much better too. It comes and goes with flare ups but I am feeling really good right now especially with the exercise in the swimming pool. Do you have anywhere that you can go swimming to cool off. Well, have a good weekend.
