Well, It's Good Exercise

Lisa and I took a walk after lunch (as we've been trying to do every day when the weather permits), but my blood sugar was in the 180s, which is uncomfortably high. Rather than going for another walk, we decided to tackle the pile of branches that I'd cut down on my last visit but that we'd not been able to reduce to burnable size on account of I'd broken the chainsaw's oil filler cap when a piece of wood I split bounded away and hit the saw. We've long since repaired the saw, so Lisa and I kitted up and tackled the small wood pile. With me feeding logs and Lisa cutting, this took hardly any time at all, and in less than half an hour we had two hand-cart-loads of logs to haul to the wood shed. We also stowed a load of wood that Lisa had hauled over earlier. There's still mountains of wood that need hauling, but we felt better about clearing away one of the piles.

I felt a little shaky when I went back to the "office," and took another blood sugar reading: 88. That's actually a normal reading, but was a pretty significant fall from the one-hour-after-lunch peak, so I ate a banana to pump things back up a little bit.

Shoe update: Lisa's shoes have arrived, but since we're planning to go to Salem tomorrow evening (it's our wedding anniversary), we've put off the shoe retrieval until then.
