Peach State says: What’s With All The Ups and Downs?

20130719-095856.jpg

I have not talked about my Diabetic issues for some time for obvious reasons…”There were no issues!” Everything was fine and dandy. But recently I have noticed an increase in Low Blood Sugar followed by a spike or…a normal level followed by a drastic drop after breakfast.

“What’s With All The Ups And Downs?”

Wednesday morning I go up and my BS level was pretty much normal only to have it fall suddenly to 53 an hour later. This morning…my first level was 100 and then two hours later 60…”Yes-I had breakfast!” Yesterday was not a very good day…similar levels combined with a non-stop-no-time-to-eat schedule. By 2:30 pm I was shaking and woozy! So being the health-freak-chocoholic I am I broke down and bought a Almond Joy“What? It’s dark chocolate and that is good for you!” So the candy bar combined with the snack bowl of cereal at 6:00 am I was feeling a bit out of sorts!

Mutual Cat Loving Friend…put that finger away! Thank you! And Love You Too!

Back to the edge-of-your-seat story…I was finally on my way home when I got redirected by my oldest son and had to drive almost 10 miles up the interstate to drop him off and then back down the interstate towards home!

Did I mention he is supposedly moving out today and tomorrow?

On the final approach to the home front I got a call from a dear friend I had been playing phone-tag with all day. She had a favor to ask and well…”You know me!”…I flew under the radar and began a frantic search for a certain accompaniment track and close a party a friend held for my business, showered and changed quickly as I prepared to high-tail it back out the door within 45 minutes! I finally arrived back home at 7:15 last night and started fixing dinner. FOOD! “Slight confession…I did eat something just before singing!”

The good news is the fact that I have no real plans for today! “Can you believe it?” “Me either!”

I have a few things on the To-Do List but nothing major…”Whew!” I may want to buy a few of those Healthy Almond Joys in case I need one! I could put them in the Emergency Kit! (Insert chuckle!)

So until the next time…
“May you cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

I am finally home from a day long trip to my home town. My niece graduated from High School today and for the first time in many years I drove beyond my parents house. It was fun to see all the changes and even more…what had stayed familiar and unchanged. Looking down the list of graduates was like looking at an old church roll.

After walking across my old college campus, where the high school graduation was held, I finally found all of my siblings and their spouses. We endured an hour of introductions and special music and finally started the handling out of the diplomas. BUT WAIT! Instructions were given 3 times on how to clap…when to clap…no noise makers!

“Please contain you clapping and cheering for your graduate until the entire row is complete.”
The third graduate stepped over to receive her diploma as cheers and horns sounded!
I am glad my parents decided to leave after my niece walked across the stage.

We gathered to have lunch together and celebrate the day…then we all went our own ways and headed home. I picked up a couple of things for dinner and a movie!

Who wants to cook? Not me!
And the movie called Joyful Noise that no one in my family wants to see…except for me!

So I will close…with comfy clothes now on…and my Almond Joy Mocha beside my chair…the movie is starting. Enjoy your evening!

I just love the Starbucks’ Mocha Coconut Frappacino! It tastes like an Almond Joy shake. The only thing better is making it at home for a lot less money! Want to know how to make an Almond Joy Mocha?

A couple of weeks ago I found a new product…

It is wonderful and can be diluted with espresso or coffee. Simply pour it over a little ice!

Then add, to taste, International Delight Creamer…Almond Joy.

You can serve over the ice or blend with ice achieving a Frapp, shake like, consistency.
Enjoy!

I just wanted to share this wonderful Coffee recipe! Let me know what you think!
Have a great day!
