Our printer is not working either. The cheaper colored ink is not communicating with the machine. The cost of the ink is about what the machine cost. Just in transition till it get works out.
I will miss the social interactions here. Most people I would never have met will be a pleasant memory. I am also in my 12 year here. That is quite a habit.

I have been busy copying my pictures to my computer, then copied a few recipes I wanted and now I am copying all my blogs. I used Spark as a Diary of sorts so I have 12 years worth of blogs to copy -- minus the times I had to be away. I still have a number more blogs to copy, then I will go back to the recipes and see if I have any other saved ones I want to keep.

Too bad my printer died on me a couple of moths ago and I've never got around to getting a new one (I am insisting on a duplex printer to save paper as it prints on both sides.) If I had a printer I could just print everything off, but as it is, I have to copy everything over to a word processing document but not every thing copies over properly so then I have to reformat. What a chore!

Glad you had a great vacation. It's always nice to go away, but I find it nice to come home again as well, lol

Proud of myself in what I ordered for lunch today. Great Ahi tuna with veggies. However veggies were soaked or boiled in water.

We haven't had much rain lately either. We have had mid 90 degree weather though. Try to get out early for exercise to avoid the heat

It is cooler here now, but still not much rain, just a little now and then. We really need the rain, especially over the forest fire areas. There are so many this year....

My numbers tend to "bounce" up and down. I strive for consistency in the components that can be controllable. Diabetes affects us all differently. What works for one may not be effective for another. We can manage it, but not control it like a cold or a hangover.

Having printer problems here. The cartridges are not working. It seems the cost of the cartridges are about what the printer cost.

Yes, my day is going well.

I found a new recipe to make in the Instant Pot for supper tonight. I am also working on Spark, going through old recipes and articles that I may want to keep. The ones I want to keep I will have to copy and paste to a word document because my printer broke down a couple of months ago and I have not been able to find one I like since. I am insisting on one that prints on both sides as it really helps save on paper. Also, since I can't get out to the the stores very easily, I need one that I can make copies on. My last one was a Cannon and I loved it. Sadly they don't make that model anymore but I am still looking.

It didn't cool down very much overnight, but that little air conditioner that my sister loaned to me, is keeping the place not too bad.

Been here about that long also. Initially it was logging what I ate. It really helped to make what I was eating meaningful. It really helped.
I then liked the Team Forums, especially the Diabetic ones. There hasn't been as much chatter as there once was. In my Diabetes journey, it was comforting being able to share life difficulties with this disease I did not understand. It has been great to share this experience even though I still don't understand the disease. Somethings work, the same things don't work again, it can be very perplexing.

May I ask what part of Canada?

It has been quite hot here (in Edmonton) this week, although we have had a couple of thunder storms and raging rain which has cooled things off.

Thanks Linda. I am hearing that you can join Spark America and join city teams which compete against each other. Don't know where the Diabetes forums are going to? I enjoy this feature.

My pancreas is still working. A1C was still high. Hope next blood work is lower than this one or stronger medicine will be in order. Trying to delay insulin injections.

Been reading up on the C-Peptide function. Hope I fall in the middle range that pancreas is working but I can remain on oral medicine for my Diabetes.
