Surgery, clean eating, diabetes, and being me

It's been a world of nature around here lately. A wren set up housekeeping in one of my petunia garden pots and now has three babies. We've watched from nest build to one egg and then three eggs, to hatchlings, to hatchlings almost eaten by a snake!, back to no snake and relative safety in the nest again.

Yesterday, I visited with my orthopedist. We've talked for a few years about revising my left knee replacement. I am now scheduled for October 25. The bottom line is this needs to be done before something happens and a catastrophe occurs. I'm ready and can't wait to get it behind me.

As a result, it's time to clean up my act once more. Thank goodness I'm flexible, huh? Eating clean, not smoking, staying away from alcohol and drugs, and getting some exercise are all on tap. What better day to begin than today. I am calling it modified paleo. This is more for my blood sugar than anything else. And that always needs attention.

The house remodeling is going very slowly. We're waiting for the contractor to be freed up. I'd like for this to be over with too.

All in all, life is good. And I see no reason why it should not continue to be so.
