Holiday Break.

No Diabetes By December 11, 2015 10 Comments

Ever need a short break in order to stay in it for the long haul? I’m doing one of those. I’m taking off from Six Until Me until January, so I can refocus at home (see also: watch Buddy the Elf at least a dozen times) and come at 2016 with renewed drive. In the meantime, happy holidays to you…

Green Beanery.

Winter started around November of last year and continued onward with a vengeance until yesterday morning, when “42 degrees and sunny” seemed to constitute as “spring.”  The snow is all but melted (except for a few very stubborn igloos built by resourceful squirrels), so Birdy and I took advantage of the sunshine yesterday to explore our backyard. We moved house…

Four Things.

No Diabetes By February 28, 2015 7 Comments

I stole a meme from Stephen, who stole it from Jeff, who stole it from Scully.  (This is an exercise in content theft.)  I haven’t done a meme in ages and am drinking half-caffeinated coffee this morning in an effort to cut back on the amount of caffeine I take on, so I’m meme’ing in hopes of waking up my…

Things I can’t do:  make insulin. Things I can do:  make a window seat in less than ten minutes. Armed with fabric, padding, plywood, a staple gun, and a very helpful YouTube video, it took me ten minutes to make a window sat cushion for the bench beneath our window.  (The pillows were a different story and required a sewing…

Throwback Thursday: Before Diabetes.

Diabetes Memories, No Diabetes By March 13, 2014 Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

Taken on my fourth birthday, this was before insulin injections. Before blood sugar checks. Before diabetes camp. Before counting carbs and insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors and before A1Cs and endocrinologists. … but not before my love of books, and of reading.  I can’t think of anything that predates that.

Birdy’s Book Favorites.

At least a third of my books were bloated when I was a kid, because I read them in the shower.  (Hold the book against the wall and turn the pages with one hand, and shower/soap up/rinse off with the other hand.  Then, at the end of the shower, toss the book out and quickly wash the Other Arm.) I…

NinjaBread Cookies

Diet and Food, No Diabetes By December 23, 2009 Tags: , , No Comments

Yesterday, my mom and I made attempts to make a bunch of Christmas cookies.  We started out early(ish) in the morning, and with some normal looking cookies and with our brains fully functioning.  We made some delicious winners, like these tasty Hershey Kiss cookies that have a tinge of peanut butter and are melty and awesome.  However, after too many cookies…
