About 14 years. Right after I lost my daughter, I had an appointment with my doctor to see if I might benefit from a tranquilizer. While I was there she had a A1c done. I left her office, ran some errands and it was about five hours later I got home. The phone was ringing off the hook. It was the doctor in charge of the diabetic clinic. He wanted to send an ambulance for me. My sugar was in the 400. My sister drove me to the nearest ER in the next town over. They gave me a shot of insulin and kept me there for the next hour to see if my sugar went down. I was there for more than three hours and two more shots. The next morning I was back at my doctors office.

I run ice cubes or citrus peels through mine.



That is how I used to justify spending the extra money on lemons for my Iced Tea.

I buy lemons and then look to Alix for inspiration, usually lemon bars.

Lemon bars remind me of my mother, she always made them for the Sunday coffee hour at her church.

High praise indeed! Thanks Aunt Bea. I'm always a little thrilled and humbled when folks like my recipes.

I'm sitting in my chair, fire blazing in the fireplace, cup of mulled wine at hand, Kindle beside me and laptop fired up. I'm NOT going outside again! Its freaking freezing out there.
