Who Doesn't Love a Mini-Cow?

Time for an update!  It's been a while...finally we're in our new place-I'm planted again.  It has taken a ton of work and pain to get it cleaned up.  I have issues with the landlord :(

Now that we're settled, my cat is happy in this house and my fiance J is off and running in his new job, the stress level has gone down tremendously.  Which means the BGs are good and steady too!  My last Endo appt. was awesome, as my A1c was down a tenth of a point to 7.2 and cholesterol was back down to normal also.  I'm hoping that by tightening my goal BG numbers it'll go even lower.

I am very excited to have a gigantic, healthy garden that's full of worms at our new house (trust me, it took a ton of work to dig out all the weeds and grass that had been left to flourish for the past couple years) 
It being a new moon this week, calls for the planting of cabbage, lettuce and spinach!  I came upon this bit of gardening knowledge about the lunar cycles and you can read more about it here or check out the Farmer's Almanac.  I have been such a garden info nerd along with becoming slightly obsessed with the idea of modern homesteading and living simply...that's for another day though..along with my obsession with having a chicken and a mini-cow someday.  I digress. 

I have gardening towards the top of my Things That Make Me Go Low list.  It isn't strenuous or anything, its just the constant "doing" that can throw me under 60 and keep me there.  I tend to ignore this too, as I'm busy and dirty and in a "shaky-fog" and don't want to go in to get something. 
Oh well, I actually think I am low now.  I'm too busy for lows!
