We have been without power and water for a couple of days. There was a couple of loud explosions in the village Tuesday afternoon and everything shut down. Apparently a dump truck had somehow managed to touch an overhead power cable and that was that. At the same time the water system in the village developed a leak and the maintenance have been trying to trace it.
Now we are all back on line and there are dishes piled up and the place is a mess. How we rely on these things, when so many in the world don't have easy access to water and no electricity. We have much to be thankful for.
So since I could not do much I have been gadding about in the car, not that there is much to look at and I missed three would be photographs by being too slow. A young moose, a mule deer and a bear. Except this morning I had ran out of gas so was stuck here until the power came on. Fortunately I did not have to cook another meal on the wood stove. Our moose stew slow cooked nicely on there yesterday but my eggs this morning seemed to take ages, plus it was hot having it going when yesterday was a scorcher although today we had a lot of rain and it cooled down.
Apart from the above I have been sick with an infection, plus several appointments with diabetes counsellors, nutritionists and doctors. I am happy to report that I have no kidney disease, and in fact the blood work I had where they test to see how much sugar is attached to your blood cells came out better, they told me, than most non-diabetic people AlC 5.3 to anyone that understands these things. I am still a diabetic and I can't change that but because I have always lived a low carb lifestyle it is very controlled. They told me to carry on doing what I have been doing since it is working, so I feel empowered rather than depressed that I lost the battle. My father had diabetes in later life and that set me up for it, unfortunately I have passed that gene on to my kids and to my grandsons but now I have to educate them to be vigilant also.
So now I have to head over to my Reader and catch up with you all.
