Have you ever wondered where all of your energy disappears to? Well, I haven’t had any energy for the past week or so and I have hated every minute of it. I love it when I have energy because I get so much accomplished and feel great about it. The past couple weeks have been kinda difficult when it comes to my health. I have been on this medicine for my diabetes and it has literally torn up my stomach. It works wonders with my blood sugar readings, but it causes great problems with my stomach and creates road blocks when I want to leave the house for a day out. Anyway, my doctor took me off my metformin and told me to just continue to take my other meds and see how things work out. Well, they haven’t been working out at all. My glucose levels have been higher then normal……not dangerously high, but higher then normal and I am not sure my doctor knows what to do at this point. I was on another medicine, but heck it put 15-20 pounds on me and I looked like the good year blimp. I am far from looking like Barbie, but still when you are already overweight…..well, you don’t need any extra pounds added on. So, I don’t think my doctor knows what to do from here and in the meantime my glucose levels are high and my energy has gone in for a tailspin. I was longing for some energy this weekend and since I stayed pretty close to home…… I took my regular dosage of metformin. Guess what happened?!? I got my energy back and completed some projects that have been waiting to get finished. Of course my stomach was upset again, but my readings were great and I had energy. Good thing I am a Stay at Home Mom (hahahahaha).
So………… speaking of projects, I got alot accomplished this past weekend. I pulled weeds after weeds out of my flowerbeds, brought out my Amish buggy wagon wheel and placed it in my flowerbed, planted a few flowers in some flower pots and helped my hubby with the flowerbeds in the backyard. I had so much energy and didn’t want it to go to waste. It would rain and I was still outside enjoying the energy while I had it. I did however go inside when it started storming. We had a pretty big storm yesterday around lunch time. It poured the rain down and we had quite a bit of hail. I took a couple pictures of the hail that was all over our yard and flowerbeds.
I didn’t mind the storms nor the hail. Our yard was in need of the water. we had put down fertilizer so we were happy to see the rain finally arrive. The hail isn’t that bad as long as it doesn’t cause damage (ya know)? I pray for those that lost their homes or loved ones to the tornadoes that touched down this past weekend. It is definitely the season for that kinda weather, but you hate for anyone to lose loved ones or their homes and all that they have worked so hard for all of their lives.
Let’s talk projects – shall we? I have received several requests for me to make some stacking boxes. I have made them for myself, but I have never made them and sold them on my selling blog. Well, I actually filled a couple orders this past week and finished them up yesterday. I will be adding these to my selling blog so if you are interested then please check out Londonberry Primitives.
I will be offering the large stacking boxes as well as smaller boxes. They can be plain or I can stencil the sides as well as the top. As long as the stencil is available then I would be happy to do it for you. Keep watching my selling blog for more pictures and pricing. Thanks!
Not sure if it is rainy and dreary where you are, but it is here in Ohio. So, I thought I would leave you with a couple pictures of some of my flowers that are currently in bloom as well as some new salvia that I picked up the other day at the greenhouse. Hope you enjoy them and they help to brighten your day.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
