I would have posted the image up but it might be offensive to some people. Being on their side of the fence, however, this is darn funny stuff!

Diabetic Baking!

Well, this topic seems to be everywhere this time of year as people are starting to get ready for the holiday madness.

I think this is one of my favorite new blogs as it takes the ingredients that I know of and goes one step further to actually create new diabetic friendly recipes that taste good. There's nothing I know of that infuriates me more when we diabetics have to eat a "special" meal. In other words, feed everyone crap so they get overweight while giving the diabetics the healthy food!

I think most of the people that know me know that I'm pretty liberal in what I eat - a little vegan, a little junk food, a little candy here and there, plus the normal stuff modified to be healthier, like whole wheat pasta, brown rice, etc. I happen to really like sushi, too, and have a weakness for potatoes and ranch dressing, but I try to find ways to work that into my diet.

Not that my blood sugar is perfect or anything but I am trying. Hopefully that counts in my body for something. I've been trying to deduce what causes my high blood sugars lately - crackers seem to be a big problem. The dance classes I've been taking seem to really be helping my blood sugars fall - DH and I are practicing 40 minutes a night.

I'm trying to cut back on the caffeine too but it appears as if I'm increasing it more as the sleep I'm getting at night seems to get less and less. I seem lost without my morning cup of coffee at work anymore. Anyway...

That's my little rant (trying to control myself) but I'm going to follow this girl's blog closely.

My favorite art tool ever!

I was reading some othe Knifty Knitting blogs and discovered this post. How awesome is Don Marco? He creates art with CRAYONS. Yup, you heard right - CRAYONS. I love my crayons - use them all the time in fact, but I don't know if I could ever do this!

Back to work...

So I'm back to work and getting going on what else? Photos of the construction site I was at this morning.

I was up too darn early to get anything real done today anyway. So I've been doing other things - cleaning the work fridge, editing photos, creating marketing pages.

I'm working on some neat legwarmers for my Disney angel package. They're turning out well, I should have them done in time. My other crafts...well, not so much. I was going to do a knit Mushu the dragon but couldn't find a pattern. I tried cross stitching again (something I haven't had patience for in ages) and threw it down after the first twenty four stitches because it just takes too darn long, and started to embroider it before I came up with a better idea.

The other craft I had planned to do, bottle cap clips, well, the Gallery Glass that I had bought for it still hasn't turned clear! Grr. I'm going to use it on the bottom as a cushion instead of clear on top. Oh well.

Anyway, here's Swink (my little visitor) at the construction site this morning.
