whooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooo!! a different repair man (the same guy came the last 2 times) just left and i am pretty sure he fixed it!! the broiler flames seem to be about 2 inches long (maybe a bit longer but not to much longer i am not taking a ruler to measure LOL). he did exactly what i thought (and what i told the other guy), he opened the valve. and it only took him 10 - 15 minutes!! the final proof will be the next time i broil a steak!! i am so happy!!

it was in the upper 50's this morning. the kind of weather i love!! i sat on my deck for a bit and my kitties kept me company. i decided to give them some left overs. hey what the heck if i can keep from throwing food away.

It seems even the Kitties like eating pasta and lentils





she needs someone to twist her sketties for her!!

Good day eh. Cute kitties. Mine is sprawled next to me after I shoved her off my laptop. NOT impressed with me. Its a lovely 25C here today and the birdies are chirping and the neighbourhood is quiet at the moment. I'm going to make cookies soon to make it smell yummy around here.

Good day everyone!!

I just got off the phone with my doctor.

He wanted me to get tested again after 6 weeks after being diagnosed. here are the results.

before - fasting sugar was 289 / after only 6 weeks - fasting sugar was 162
before - cholesterol 269 / after only 6 weeks - choleterol 138
good and bad cholestrol in the very good range, no protein in my urine, liver and kidneys in better condition.

I posted and it got lost. I think all the numbers were pretty good. The fasting is still high, My endo wants my fastings to be 100 and under. The lower the better and testing 4-6 times a day helps. I know it sounds a lot but it helps you know more about yourself. I've had people tell me they can tell what their numbers are, HOOIE I don't buy it. The only way to tell is test. But you are doing well. Don't put off re-checks, it's what keeps you healthy. And remember keep and eye on blood pressure. You don't want to end up like me!!!

Its 3 PM and I am sitting at my puter enjoying a cup of fresh ground and brewed coffee (I bought a bag of beans. A blend of death by chocolate, hazel nut and mocha java). It is yummy!! I am trying to figure out how I will put my assorted veggies and chicken breast togaether to form a meal my family will be happy with. Without fail there is at least one that doesn't want a part of it "I'm not gonna eat dinner!!". Last night I gave in 2 of us had steamed spinach and 2 had uncooked with mushrooms and homemade dressing. I am also trying to cut way back on carbs and I get grumbling from the hub. I must say the girls haven't been so bad about it. Well my daughter just got home from school (my older girl picked her up) and she walked in the door complaining about the older girl!! And so it begins. Fun fun!! Well I had 10 minutes of peace and quiet to enjoy my coffee.
