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!

Something New

When I was in elementary school and beyond I had a garden through the schools (Benjamin Franklin in Cleveland, Ohio).  We grew all sorts of vegetables and flowers and I continued my love of flowers and growing things throughout my life (ask my husband about the 23 tomato plants someday). But I never grew an amaryllis or paper white until my neighbor bought me one this week claiming how cool it will be at Christmastime. So I took the plunge, read the box and planted the big bulb. I'm curious to see it grow!

BSoleille!  The bright side of a new thing!

My mother and her boyfriend kept a ruler next to the plant so they could measure how much it grew EVERY day.
