Daily Reflections From My Window

“The common denominator that I’ve found in every single interview is that we all want to be validated. We want to be understood.” Oprah


I still haven’t figured out the mobile version of this site variation. We’ll see how this looks when we finish. I discovered something yesterday though. I shared to Twitter (along with MeWe and Parler) and Twitter asks if you want to break it up into different posts since they only allow a certain amount of characters. I chose that option snd it was pretty interesting how they kept the topics together and posted with pictures. I think I’ll do it again today.

In the attitude of gratitude this week I thank my family for their patience and love. Yup. Every single one of you. I love you all, even if it is from afar. So Jay had a meeting yesterday and one of the leaders had a very interesting insight into Covid vaccines. We all know that Covid is new and that the scientists and the Trump administration have been working through Operation Warp Speed in unprecedented cooperation and speed to get tests and vaccines to the public and for the most part have been successful in record time. If you remember that the smallpox vaccine took over 50 years, this is an incredible feat. Still there has to be a finite supply of testing equipment. It doesn’t just appear out of thin air. There is production time, materials sourcing, shipping at each stage. So why would I, who have zero symptoms, take a test when it could be used for someone who needs one. That was the question posed at Jay’s meeting. This business needed to test employees, but the tests were getting harder to come by because people who really didn’t need them were using them. And I imagine that you have friends like I do who are kind of compulsive and will not only take one, but will take them consistently. We have to be smart about this. I wear my mask when I go out and am pretty much self isolated every day. It’s a conundrum for sure. A simple example of supply and demand though the tests are supposed to be free. Here is something I am very thankful for. I asked Jack and Madison to get me some fresh Rosemary leaves or a plant if they had it while grocery shopping and they got me this. I love it for 2 reasons-it’s beautiful and more than just Rosemary, and it’s from That’s Tasty-a Macaroni Kid sponsor. Thankful that we are supporting our sponsors. Thanks kids!

Look at this sweet alpaca hat that Mary’s daughter made for me. I love it and you know my wheels are turning about how to get her to make some for me with my yarn. A partnership.

Speaking of Mary, that leads to hooping and here are my girls with our first mask mandated hoop class, hamming it up with our Macaroni Kid and Creative Roots Coconut Beverage Sampling Campaign. Masks on a few were only down momentarily because they WERE drinking it. They went right back on between sips. I should have brought bendy straws. They are such good sports and I look forward to Tuesday and Thursday every week.

Dawn gives a real testimonial.

Here’s Pam (on the left). She said that her son in law LOVES coconut water and she can’t wait to share with him.

You know that we are watching the Crown and Seinfeld and in a strange coincidence (you know that we call them Godwinks!) and it seems that we came to the end of both series last night. We may have to start over until the next season comes out of the Crown and just watch Seinfeld all over. I’ll tell ya-Charles does not look too good in the Crown. I always thought he was awful in real life but boy, Diana DID NOT deserve that. He treated her terribly and that Camilla? She seems like a mother figure that he never had. They are a strange bunch and it does seem that Diana was the most real. There’s a scene where she hugs a young child whose parent had aids (though they don’t say that because they don’t yet know) and it is heartbreaking. Let the tears roll. She was very special and that stupid family didn’t know what they had. Especially Charles. What a sniveling idiot.

Here’s my bracelet in support of my buddy John. He has his first round of chemo today and when I glanced up during arm hooping and caught a glimpse of it, wanted to share. Please say a prayer for him. Here are a few more angles of it.

Today I’m back to the doctor-acupuncture/chiro combo. I need to ask about a supplement that I want to discontinue. We’ll see.

Remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of a full grown llama (which is bigger than an alpaca) between you and the next person.

Have a blessed day!
