The 4th of July is over. Last night I wondered if I am just becoming a cranky old woman. All the scoff-laws on my street, were out for hours, with all sorts of fireworks. Which are illegal in this city in a state that is highly flammable. I heard the drunken laughter – you know, the high hilarity that no one else could possibly “get.” Nope I don’t get it. I just wanted to have a house standing this morning, and I do. I didn’t call the police, even though I wanted to. Instead I went out on my back porch, all decked out in lights for the 4th, and sat for hours. Chill, I told myself, chill.
This morning I am taking a whole bunch of blood tests that required me to fast. Can you believe that I called and asked for them? I did a health assessment the other day and realized that all the info I have about cholesterol, etc., are over 2 years old. I will see how not eating meat has impacted the lipid panel. I have a feeling it will be worse. The lowest levels I ever recorded were when I was on a high fat, low carb diet. I think it is the carbs, especially sugar, that kill us, I really do. (and now this will bring visitors to my blog who write about diets – this is not something that I care to write about, so please see this as an anomaly, OK?)
I’m getting a lot of knitting done. I think some of it may be marketable. I will likely show you the finished products tomorrow.
Have a wonderful Friday if you can. And if you can’t, that is OK too, I will not judge you and will pray no one else does either.
