Daily Reflections From My Window

September 13, 2021 Monday: Blessings and a Day Full of Surprises


“Humor doesn’t come out of the good times, it comes out of the anger, pain, and sorrow. Always the anger.”

Joan Rivers

I chose the above quote for 2 reasons. I miss comedy and I love Joan Rivers. She was bawdy and funny and told it like it was. What would she say about the world today? Comedians have a tough time today.

Anywho, I am counting my blessings that that is not my profession.

My profession right now is in question. It’s a month or so to my biggest vendor event and I’ve got nothin’. When I try to get to work and buckle down, I get sidetracked. I’m having a hard time putting the hours together to accomplish much. Today I’ll be gone most of the day at a dr appointment. Yesterday, I just got off track. I went to church, wearing my Sierra Tank, came home, picked Janet up and we went to H.Wonder Coffee and Records to see the kids and get a delicious cup of coffee and treat. They were pretty busy with the non football crowd, but had a minute to visit when they delivered our goodies. We sat it the palazzo and had a wonderful time just chatting with my buddy. I’ve missed her!

She had grits, Madison style and an iced tea and I had a gluten free tea cake, fresh sliced orange (REALLY! Where else can you get that?!?!) and a rich, latte smoothie w/no dairy. They really have healthy options. I love it.

I’ll give you a quick wrap up of the rest of the day: alpaca care, a little but if yard work while dog sitting, stacking the little bit of wood Jay couldn’t get to because he was working on a bigger project and a spontaneous visit to our fabulous Roxbury Bandshell where we had a delicious dinner provided by Holy Cross Polish National Catholic Church in Portage. Thank you! We listened to the Whiskey River Panhandlers. What a beautiful evening for music and dinner outside. It was awesome.

Here are some photos and a little video of our day.

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!
