A MUCH Better Day For Me!

Can you believe this photo was taken just a few miles from my home here in central Florida? The first week of January brought a real cold snap through our parts, where today's temperature is hovering around 80 degrees? Amber took the photo of the ice. To see more wonderful, wintry photos, please visit her blog at Amber's Album



Thanks for the sweet comments of concern left for me after yesterday's post. I'm happy to report that today went much better. I think the problem yesterday was due to only eating a half of a banana with my coffee that morning and being over tired from lack of sleep sure didn't help either. This morning, I ate a boiled egg and apple for breakfast and took time to really hydrate myself more than I did yesterday. When I got back from doing my 3 miles, my blood sugar level had dropped only 36 points rather than the 76 in the same amount of time yesterday. Also, I had a so/so night of sleep. I think that helped some!

Shane has gone with his dad to the Barber Shop and then they'll make a quick stop for some steaks to bring home and grill. YUMMY!

I'm so pleased that my cousin in WVa is posting again! You can click Think,think,think... to go check out her blog. I wish y'all could meet her in person. She is one of the sweetest gals I know on the face of this earth! You would just love her!

I miss my sissy. She is up around Washington DC this week. It seems I just can't keep her in my neck of the woods!


Did any of you all hear about our 70 vehicle pile up on I-4 near Lakeland, FL yesterday? It was horrible! Due to super heavy fog and smoke from brush fires, over 20 tractor trailers and many other vehicles were involved. Several fatalities resulted from it. I-4 has been closed for over 24 hours now.
Speaking of Lakeland, let me put in a plug for some friends! LOL. The pile up happened not many miles from their granite business.(Southern Granite).

Well my guys are back so I'm off to help prepare the veggies.

I am so thankful you are feeling better now! What a day you had yesterday! : ( I'm hypoglycemic and I *have* to eat some protien in the morning. I also carry protien bars in my purse, in case my blood sugar takes a dive later in the day.

Hugs to you friend!

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. I've not gotten around to blogs in a few days with things being so crazy trying to get ready for the wedding and a bridal shower and planning a rehearsal dinner. So much to do and not much time to get it all done. And "that time" is coming in a day or so....so there won't be much getting done till that leaves!!

No, I didn't hear about the pile up. Glad you're feeling better. And are you REALLY surprised that you and I have the same book? After all, weren't we separated at birth or something??? LOL
