Daily Reflections From My Window

“Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?”

David Attenborough

Happy Easter to those celebrating Easter today! Alleluia!

Yesterday we celebrated this guy’s graduation from UPJ. Heuston has been such an inspiration to us and some day, I’ll tell you his story but for now, what he’s been through and the challenges God has put in his path and that he has overcome, are beyond an ordinary person’s ability. He has faith for sure. But humility is his secret weapon! He is the best carpenter and landscaper we know! Jay wants him to take down the gazebo in our front yard and soon he will be here to do that.

Here’s another picture of him. Yes, that’s Jack with a new haircut! I always tell him to save his hair because I just might need it. He forgot, but he looks great! They all do-pandemic and all. That’s Jon on the left. Another important puzzle piece to our lives. Thank you all for being here.

Getting ready for shearing on Tuesday. Hopefully it will stay dry-at least until we get them inside. Then what will be will be. Here’s Hammy, looking fluffy.

Here’s my latest offering for socks. There are about 12 skeins ready to go to Denise! Then this week right after shearing, I’ll get to work on more. They have more depth in person than in the picture.

Off to in-person church we go this morning and then Jack and Madison are coming over to spend some time with us. It will be a fun day for sure! I got a beef brisket at Aldi’s. I think we’ll have that for dinner. And fresh green beans.

Keep an eye out for the birds. We are seeing more and different ones at our feeders this year. Could be the quiet from the pandemic. Get your hummingbird feeders up! Our neighbor has also confirmed their return.

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!
