Daily Reflections From My Window

April 14, 2021 Wednesday Milk Delivery Day


“Congratulations. The fact that you’re reading this means you’ve taken one giant step closer to surviving until your next birthday.”

It’s a big day! We still have milk delivered. I love this service by ValeWood Farms . They are branching out and delivering more items from local farmers. We have tried the beef patties in the past and now I see that they have bacon. We love the garlic butter. No need to add other spices when you use it. Today I only asked for the garlic butter and the half and half. Just the basics today.

So let me tell you what happened to my friend Scott Hunt. Here’s the link to his FB post. I’m still thinking about this. I don’t think he’ll mind if I share it. He did and it’s an amazing warning. This is his photo from his post.

To make his story brief, and you can read the full post in the link, a 38 year old healthy man who exercises regularly got a warning from his Apple Watch that he was in A-Fib. He did heed the warning and spent several days in the hospital getting tested. I talked to him last night-he plays basketball after our hula hoop class so he was catching us all up on the event. As he said-“Having no family history of this, I can’t say it saved my life, but then I can’t say it didn’t either.” He apparently had Covid in December and the cardiologist hinted after some thought that it could have been something to do with long term after affects of that. This is all so new and uncharted. I may need a new watch. My Fitbit is probably 10 years old.

You may remember our dear friend Doug. At the beginning of the pandemic, he was having trouble cutting his grass-he was getting winded. He chalked it up to being cooped up and not getting as much exercise as usual. He had a routine checkup a few days later and before we knew it, he was admitted to the hospital with A-Fib and had passed away later that afternoon. He was a bit older than Scott but in pretty good shape. I still can’t believe it. Once in a while Jay will say, “we’d be talking to Doug about this.” Or “I was just thinking about Doug.” Me too.

So what’s up for today besides milk delivery? I think a Covid test for Jay. I saw an interesting report on Tucker last night from a doctor who is advising people who have HAD Covid NOT to get the vaccine. He said that the studies are advising against it. Makes sense. Why would you need to be vaccinated for a virus already in your body that you have antibodies for? Can you tell that I’m torn? Jay says I watch too much news. I think I do, too.

Here’s your dose of alpaca! We’re starting to prep for shearing in less than a month. I’m doing Raggz Fiber Show in Delmont on April 24 from 10am-3 PM and Toni just sent out an email that it is in 10 days! Wow that snuck up on me. Here’s the link. to the event.

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!
