This was about the best the sun managed to do here today.
A watery sun at best, as if it was almost afraid to come out, it emerged periodically but never long enough to warm us. It melted some of the snow so that now evening is here, the runoff has frozen and turned sidewalks and driveways into skating rinks. Out with the salt and ice melter we go, before someone falls and breaks something !
Thank you to all who left comments offering good wishes and encouragement. DH was delighted with the response to his painting, especially as he hadn't known I'd posted it. He did very well with his treatment and feels pretty good.
We had company tonight, my SIL and family came to see hubby. DH showed them DVD's of Madeira, and Portugal so we were able to forget the cold outside, and for a while bask in the Portuguese sunshine, while we went on a virtual vacation. SIL brought cookies and home made peanut brittle. They love to bake. All day I have resisted Cadbury's chocolate biscuits at work, only to succumb to coconut macaroons, shortbread, and other delights made by my in laws.
I learned in November that I am insulin resistant. I have to lose weight in order to lower my blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Sure !! I was going to get right on that just before Christmas! I tried to be as responsible as possible, and then after Jan 1st I removed all temptation and other good stuff from the kitchen. I upped my veg and fruit intake, ate almonds and walnuts, dined on fish or chicken...I was getting used to it. Then tonight I inhaled about a dozen and a half home baked treats. Tomorrow I go back to the Dr for a follow up.
I think I'm in trouble.
