Daily Reflections From My Window

September 29, 2021 Wednesday’s With Julie


“He nodded toward the window with the sunshine streaming in. “You see that? You can go out there, outside, anytime. You can run up and down the block and go crazy. I can’t do that. I can’t go out. I can’t run. I can’t be out there without fear of getting sick. But you know what? I appreciate that window more than you do.”

Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

I found this passage and it made me think of my window and my morning view. This morning, it’s incredible! With the sun and the moisture in the air, it looks spectacular. I never take it for granted and I’m so blessed to be able to see it every day and share it with you! It changes by the minute but I’ll only share a few of the changes. The deer were even enjoying the field. That’s a bonus.

And yes, we can go out anytime and run around without fear of getting sick. I think. Yesterday it rained most of the day. Pretty much a drizzle, with a few showers, so I spent most of the day inside working on my stock for Fort Days, which is next weekend. I was counting on a pretty nice sock inventory to be completed by then, but I may or not have that, as I found out last week. That puts me in a spot and I’m working to have some other things, which I will. But when the one thing everyone asks for is MIA, it puts a little pressure on. I didn’t just start it yesterday either. Fiber processing is literally years in the making. That’s another day’s tale. While I worked, I watched a really interesting video about the importance of Vitamin D to prevent and treat Covid. I highly recommend it. Seems more effective than mandating other protocols. Thank goodness I’m already taking that and other supplements. I wouldn’t have even known I’d had Covid except for the blood test identifying that I have the correct antibodies and that I still can’t taste or smell anything. It was probably that way because of the Vitamin D3. I’m taking. This video says that your level should be (by a blood test) 75 or greater for effective immune system health. I’ll have to check mine again. So many people have underlying health issues that prevent them from using it effectively, with being overweight the biggest factor. Well, watch it and it will be explained why.

Have I shared this photo? Still working on these sweet little things. I’m still figuring out where to put my logo.

This week, there seems to be a lot happening, starting Thursday with the Culture Crawl in Johnstown. Yes, H.Wonder Coffee and Records will be participating with lots of surprises. Somehow, they keep getting overlooked by organizers and the traditional publicity team. Though their shop is INSIDE the Gallery on Gazebo, it is my understanding that they are an independent entity separate and apart from the gallery’s funding. They have made some cool changes to the space, so I hope you’ll stop in and take a look. Despite being omitted from the hoopla, our IG expert is tirelessly promoting the good in the area, including this event. That’s what makes our Madison so special. She can look at the big picture and carry on. We need more business owners like her here. You can follow H. Wonder Coffee and Records on Instagram for updates.

I’m planning to head down after hooping and check it out. Maybe they’ll sign my tshirt, since their shop was omitted from that too.

Then I heard a rumor from our house painter that the Flood City Music Festival is this weekend. How did I miss that? I thought it already happened. He is a pretty good source. His band, Flowerchild is also performing. Check out the lineup.

Back to work I go.

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!
