Daily Reflections From My Window

September 14, 2021, Tuesday: Are There Ever Answers?


“The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.”


I ask a lot of questions. When I hear the answer to one, it leads to another. And another.

So it goes.

Yesterday I had my second PRP treatment for my knee. I guess I injured it a while ago and instead of doing what everyone suggested-getting a replacement, I sought out something else and it seems to be working. The treatment uses your own plasma to encourage regrowing of your own natural stuff to heal itself. I like that idea. It’s my second of three sessions. It’s stiff today but I know that walking on it will help as will putting heat on and off as needed.

After the treatment I always go to Sam’s for paper products. They were out of a lot of things so that was good. I got my paper products and met Jack and Madison there. They needed some things for their shop and got what they needed. Then in a last minute decision (for me!) we headed to IKEA and had a delicious dinner of Swedish meatballs. Then off to the home of original minimalism and social distance shopping. They had complete apartments set up inside. The focus seems to be on home offices once again.

Things have changed though. It wasn’t what I remembered. Items were “temporarily oversold”. There were no tickets to take the remind you or the employees where anything was located in the marketplace. I took photos but forgot to take the other side with location. I never thought to locate it with the app. I heard an employee explaining to a man who had gone all the way to the end that he had to go back and take a photo of what he was looking for because they didn’t have the tickets anymore. Poor guy said forget it. I did too. Stops impulse buying, that’s for sure. The good news? We had a fun time together, sampled the IKEA coffee, and J&M got what they needed for the shop. Thank goodness it wasn’t “temporarily oversold”.

Yes, I had my navy Sierra Tank Dress on and even took a photo in the doc’s office, but where is it?! Here are two of the items I was looking at but couldn’t find. The planter would have been handy and the felted curtain would be amazing with alpaca felt. How they sell this stuff so inexpensively is incredible. This morning I woke up to find work happening in the boys’ area. Heuston is working on a more permanent corner shelter for them. Yay!

Everyone is up and moving here. That’s why this is late. I’m off my routine and I think that’s a good thing! It’s making me think differently about my routine. Is it changing? Why? Why do I do this? Is it important to me? Is it important to you? Do you care if I do or I don’t? Questions, questions.

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!
