test time

Good morning.
Sunday was a wet dreary day. Misty rain off and on all day.
So I worked on a couple of little projects.
I made an extra connector for the tow vehicle of the mo-ho.
The single plug goes into the mo-ho, and the other two are for the car, and the dolly.
We like to have a spare on hand in case we are all ready to go and the lights don't work.
I also managed to get the portable gas grill that we take on trips cleaned.
Before and after.
This is a great little grill that's large enough to cook a bunch of stuff with a top grill rack, and small enough to fold and put in a bay. We've had this grill for 8 years now.
Monday, after our usual running around, I mowed the yard while Craig did his usual bookwork and laundry. It was another cold dreary day, but at least, no rain. It's been very cold these last few days for this time of year.
And this morning, Craig goes in for blood work. Time to see if all his changes have made a difference.
If you haven't been following, Craig was diagnosed 5 weeks ago as being pre-diabetic. With much discussion, his doctor told him he needed to do these 4 following things.
1. Eat breakfast and lunch every day, no skipping meals.
2. A 20 minute brisk walk 4-5 times a week.
3. Cut back on the alcohol.  
4. Cut back on late night snacking, especially chips.
Well, he's been a model patient. He's discovered by eating 3 meals a day, he's not hungry in the evening. He's been walking 5-7 times a week, and cut back his alcohol intake. He's even lost some weight!
So now, this morning, blood tests will tell if he's done enough. I think he has. We'll see. He should get the results back in a couple of days. I'll let you all know how he did.  :-)


  1. You should post a tutorial on how to clean a grill like this! It is one of my least favorite jobs and I've never known the correct way of doing it.

  2. It sounds like you both have done really well.

    Haha. I like Phillip's comment. Maybe you could come clean my grill. ;-)

    Have a great Friday!

  3. I can't believe how clean that grill is!

    I hope Craig gets a good diagnosis!
