I think Summer is trying really, really hard to show her face here in Seattle. There is actually sunshine this week and today may even be over 70 degrees (cross fingers, knock on freakin wood). Man, I can't even begin to tell you how depressing the weather has been here this past year. I told my husband we may have to move if this continues. Either that or I have to take regular trips to where it is dry and warm (hellooooo Arizona and California friends!).
Addison and I had fun frolicking in the early evening sunshine yesterday. We made bubbles and then Addison sliced them with his foam sword. We called it "Bubble Ninja" (kind of like Fruit Ninja, if you know what I mean). Blood sugars ran high all day yesterday after a good run of numbers lately. We did a site change and will see what today brings. After our 3 day, much needed, Dexie break, I decided to turn the high alarm OFF. Probably the best thing I have done in a while. I realized that I don't need Dexie screaming at me when Addison is high. Thank goodness because it would have been alarming off the hook all day yesterday, annoying both me AND Addison to no end. I do however need and want to know when Addison is low or dropping fast so the low alarm and double arrows down alarm aren't going anywhere! Love them even when they annoy me! We often talk to Dexie when it alarms "Yes Dexie, we know. " Sometimes we say this in a kind and gentle voice and other times with a growly and aggravated voice. I am hoping that less alarms and less talking to Dexie will put it a little more in the background so we can enjoy our summer days in a more carefree sort of way.
Here are some more photos of the proof that summer will indeed be here soon. Happy Solstice!
