A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

A Great Day in DC

Once my family was on their way to work and school this morning, it was time for my friend Debbie and I to walk the Crofton Parkway with the dogs, then home to shower and get ready for the day.  We decided to head down to DC to do a tour of the outdoor monuments, something Debbie has not done in a while. On the top of her list was to see the WW11 Memorial, and since I can never get enough of being down there when I can (visitors are great for us to be tourists as well), it was a great excuse to do so.  We luckily found parking near the Sculpture Garden and started there.  We snaked our way across the Mall and toward the Washington Monument on our way to the WW11 Memorial.  I must admit these beautiful displays of architecture and grandeur are both awe-inspiring and impressive and the picture perfect blue skies made it a great day to take in the scenery!  We finished the tour by going to the Lincoln and Vietnam War Memorials before hi-tailing back to the car by 4:00pm.
