Daily Reflections From My Window

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”

Robert Frost.

Aren’t both of these true. Robert Frost and the scripture.

So yesterday I took the day off from writing and it seems that since I made this blog private, no one gets a notice, so I changed it back to public. I’ve got to work on that.

I’ve been working on my exit from the Macaroni Kid world of publishing, which makes me sad, but it is my time. Lots of loose ends to deal with. It was my life for almost 11 years.

Back to full time fiber and fabric.

Yesterday I did herd health and gave everyone their M-Worm shots and a few other things. I used the Rutavala from Young Living and it worked to calm everyone down. That was nice since they can feel that I haven’t been calm lately. We got it done though.

Then Jay and I took a nice long walk. It was about 30* but sunny and it was a wonderful walk. We went about 3.3 miles through Grandview Cemetery. We haven’t walked there for a long time and it’s a beautiful place to walk. It’s so well kept. It’s historic because it is the home of the unknown plot of the 1889 flood victims, but there is also a civil war monument and just so many familiar local names.

The Unknown Plot guarded by the Angel.

Civil War memorial.

A deer watched us as we walked.

A family name we recognized in the second photo.

This was interesting. I’m not aware of any relatives here but the names are so familiar.

We’ll have to get the family historian on that case.

It looks like another beautiful day today. So funny how we still have snow on our little mountain while just a few miles away it has all melted. I spoke too soon-light snowflakes just started.

This morning I completed a 24 hour urine test and will get that in the mail today. It should show how things are going. 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!
