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!

In With the New; Out With the Old

It is not every day one buys a new lawn mower. I am thankful that my "old" mower "worked" for the past 18 years. I have had to nurse it along the past two years, and spent too much on repairs instead of replacing, so I guess I hit that proverbial "boiling point", cut my losses, and bought a new one. Now I will not have to prime it 50 times and yank on the pull 20 times to start it!  

I cannot believe the difference in operating the new one!  Smooth to use, cut nicely and the self propel mode (when activated) had me gliding all over the yard like a jet ski on water (ok, not quite, but close)!

BSoleille! The bright side of replacing new for old, as in lawn mowers....
