Daily Reflections From My Window

April 7, 2021 Wednesday:Water Walking Day


The husband who decides to surprise his wife is often very much surprised himself.


We had a very full day yesterday! Our friends Steve and Leila Lou were taking off to continue their journey, but first, we HAD to show them a few things and along the way, discovered some new things too.

A must on the list was a delicious cup of coffee from the best barista in town, so off we went to visit Madison. I love her Chai Latte with oat milk and Leila Lou got the coconut flavored version. I think Jay and Steve got what I got. The artwork on top was just as beautiful as the chai tasted.

We even ran into this cute couple out for a walk. Jay affectionately calls Chris “Bundle of Joy” and he is and Brittany is just a joy! Love these two!

I didn’t get a picture of Madison yesterday because she was pretty busy. She jokes that when we come in, the crowd follows.

Next stop? The top of the Incline where Jay pointed out the path of the flood. By this time they needed to get on the road to arrive at their destination in good time, so we led them through the Cambria City section and out 56, narrating between cars, what they were seeing. We pulled over and waved goodbye at the Conemaugh Gap Scenic Overlook. In all the years I’ve lived here, I have never stopped to investigate so yesterday, we did.

Full of flood stories, it’s another must see. It’s the deepest gap East of the Mississippi! They will definitely need to come back so that we can add this to the tour.

I thought we were headed home at this point, but Jay had other ideas! We’ve been getting quotes to paint the exterior of out house and has passed a house several times that he said looked like it had been recently painted so he wanted to stop and ask who the painter was, so he was wondering if I minded if we stopped and asked. Of course not. It’s an adventure! So we did.

Imagine our surprise when we heard dogs barking and were met by the gracious homeowner Jackie and Felix and Oscar, the pugs! That is Definitely a Godwink!

So I’ll tell you more tomorrow! Gotta go!

In the meantime, 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 an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.

Have a blessed day!
