Daily Reflections From My Window

August 19, 2021 Thursday Rain and More Rain


“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”

Max Lucado

Yesterday was a day full of nonstop rain. I had a brief window of time where it stopped, that allowed me to get out, tend the alpacas and get in before it all started up again.

On the bright side, I had an amazing conversation with Terrie Stramba who owns a mill in Wampum Pa and will be processing some of my fiber. She’s bright and cheerful and so knowledgeable about what can be done. There are new things coming! Stay tuned, because she opened up a lot of creative ideas that I’ve had rumbling around. Getting this fiber into production is goal one for me today.

I had to head to my chiropractor yesterday and things are looking good in that department. My knee is looking good and my neck, though I still have a little bit of numbness in my right hand when I’m on my computer, is less problematic. The good thing is that since I’m not on my computer as much anymore, the numbness is a lot less. One day, everything will be in working order, I hope.

I had the nicest evening last night with my sweet girl Madison. Jack had something else to do and we just did laundry and folded clothes together while we chatted about everything and nothing. It was so nice. Sometimes it’s the small things. I look forward to more time with her like this. She’s a keeper. Right now (in the background) I’m listening to a debate on CNBC between Mr. Wonderful and another guy about social media freedoms. Interesting how it all is intertwined. I like to hear the different points of view. You may think one thing and when you take the time to listen completely, can see another view.

I need to get going. My hummers are hungry. The other day I was on the phone with a friend and one of the little things saw me and kept coming to my window and trying to tell me that the feeder was almost empty. They are so smart. Can you spot it on the picture? No, it’s not the air plant shaped like a squid. Look hard. It was actually a lot closer than this picture shows.

I KNOW that I intentionally took more pictures yesterday but where did they go? Who knows. Maybe today in need to delete some off of my camera roll.Oh I found this one. Irish steel cut oats for breakfast with walnuts and cranberries. I made it the night before so just need to reheat. Exciting isn’t it? I think the sky is getting brighter, but I still hear drizzle. Annddd the rain has begun again and is coming down pretty steady once again. So much for brighter skies.

It’s looking bright again! Within minutes. Now I’m looking for a rainbow. Can you see the rain to the left?

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!
