“When we complain of having to do the same thing over and over, let us remember that God does not send new trees, strange flowers and different grasses every year. When the spring winds blow, they blow in the same way. In the same places the same dear blossoms lift up the same sweet faces, yet they never weary us. When it rains, it rains as it always has. Even so would the same tasks which fill our daily lives put on new meanings if we wrought them in the spirit of renewal from within–a spirit of growth and beauty.”
I want to wish my niece, Skye a Happy Birthday! She’s 48, I think, and more like a younger sister than a niece. She’s the keeper of our family history and took me through Ireland to refresh my memory. We need to do that again when we can.
Our guests, Karen and Joe arrived and wanted to see the alpacas after all. We kept a little distance, since I had an appointment and they had lunch plans, but Joe got right in the mix. As for Bea? She was front and center and could be seen from the house by the other Bea. When we went in, I pointed her out. We had a great visit with Karen and Joe and they look great and love their new location in Arizona. We’ll have to make that a trip soon. I had to shoo them out to get to my appointment and luckily they had lunch plans anyways! I don’t like chasing people out!
Why no photos? I’m trying to reduce the amount I take every day and I don’t want to carry around my phone. So I say, Jay! Get that picture! Or that one! They are on his phone and I forgot to ask him to forward them. He took some great shots of Joe with the alpacas and some amazing cloud formations. Just imagine it!
Then home to my new favorite snack. Celery topped with almond butter and radishes. So so good and has lots of sodium.
Today, it’s a fiber day finally! Still working on socks, sorting and skirting.
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air 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!
