For some reason I decided to look back at my blog yesterday morning (not reading the posts) just looking at my photography. It was then that I realized that yesterday was my one year anniversary of being diagnosed with Diabetes. Amazing all the changes I’ve made in my life over the last year. All for the best I might add. 🙂
Today I have some more back yard images for you. After a wonderful dinner I went out to the patio to enjoy the evening sun. Of course when I see that beautiful soft orange light I have to get my camera and shoot some images. The moon really stood out this evening and I didn’t have to fight with the city light clutter to make this image.
We met our great friends Becki and Steve for lunch yesterday. They had been shopping in Wisconsin and were stopping by Dubuque on their way home. We ate at my favorite (sort of) restaurant, Tony Roma and had a wonderful visit. To celebrate my anniversary I had a small piece of strawberry shortcake (my favorite.) I got along with it pretty well.
Then we did the river walk with them (shot a lot of images) and headed home for a nice nap. 🙂
I am starting to enjoy the Sigma 150 – 600 mm VRII lens. At first I thought it wasn’t very sharp but after some experimentation and trying different setting values I believe it is going to be a keeper after all. I’ve had it for almost a year now but just have not been able to get comfortable with it until recently.
Not exactly the image you expect to take with a 600 mm lens but as we were going inside (the bugs were starting to bite) and Jeanne said, “Oh look at the beautiful ight on Jack’s (our neighbor) flowers. So I handheld the lens and grabbed this shot. That’s it for today. Enjoy your humid Sunday. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
Congratulations on your one-year anniversary! I’m glad to hear the strawberry shortcake worked out!
I’m doing good too. At my 3-month checkup, my A1C was down to 9.4 from 13.4 at my diagnosis. They seem to think I can make it to around 7 at 6 months, if I can keep this up.
Thank you. Good for you!! Keep going. I was 9.9 when i was diagnosed and my last A1C was 5.1. Eating right, exercising and staying positive is the key. I’m betting you can do it.
Thanks for reading my blog. It is good therapy for me. I hope it is helpful to you as well. All the best.
