Daily Reflections From My Window

January 30, 2021 Saturday


“ ‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” Alice Walker.

Thank you God! We may be getting another day with sunshine. I love when the sunrise looks like this. Like something or someone’s rays are reaching down to open the sky. There are a few flurries too.

It’s a little chilly today. Less than 10* but it doesn’t seem windy. I got out yesterday to do my animals and it was refreshing. I don’t seem to feel the cold when I’m all bundled up. Must mean my thyroid is on overdrive. I hope not.

I need to get out today and go somewhere. I need to say thank you to a stranger. I need to buy some bananas!

Here is our driveway yesterday. Ever since the snow, ice mix, it’s been a losing battle. We put salt and it refreezes. Believe it or not, our Subaru has no problem with it, so yesterday we went out to lunch. It was nice. We went to Pizza Man’s in the plaza. I had a piece of fish and Jay had a tuna sub. We didn’t need dinner.

Look how beautiful the sky is now! More sun!

I think it will be an amazing day.

What do you have planned? It’s interesting how I am not taking as many photos as I once did.

Last night we watched a really interesting movie called “The Dig” on Netflix. It was recommended by our friend Rick. He’s been 100% so far on his recommendations! It’s about a woman named Edith Pretty who hires a local excavator to dig for treasure on her property because she “has a feeling” there is something under one of the mounds. It takes place in England before WWII. Of course we were looking up things along the way. They took some dramatic license, but that’s how movies are. It’s pretty interesting that the excavator got no credit for finding the amazing find which you’ll have to watch yourself to see what it is.

And then we watched an episode of our favorite, Star Trek (the original version) and guess what they were talking about? Masks and how no one wanted to wear one. It just amazes me how this happens. They visited a planet because they needed a specific element that was only mined there to cure a disease on the ship. They go to the planet and find that there is a part on the ground and a part in the sky. The part on the ground was hostile and the people were going crazy due to the gasses in the mines. The cloud part of the planet was filled with art and big thinkers. They never interacted until Kirk and Spock arrived and realized what was happening. They engineer a special mask for the mining people who are very grateful and give them the mineral they need. The cloud people see too how they need to go to the planet and help the people there. It was interesting and always amazes me how on topic the plots are most of the time.

There are my recommendations for today. In the meantime, I’ve got to bundle up and tend the livestock. They like the sun too!

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!
