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!

My Morning Music

Back in the day, anyone remember wearing the bulky AM/FM radio headphones while they worked out or went for a run? Or carrying a small portable CD player? Certainly times have changed with "technological wonders" of having your "favorite" 10,000 songs on a tiny "pod" of some sort that is truly amazing.  And, interestingly enough, the last running event I went to, 80% of the participants had music/headphones in their ears to traverse the race.  However, today, and lots of days, I either forget, or my device is low battery, and I head out the door with just the sounds of the day.  My "morning music" today included: cicadas, crickets, the honking of mallard ducks over head and flying in an inverted "V", the whoosh of a car, the rumble of the school bus, the whistle from the school crossing guards, the ping of a golf ball, a single "woof" from a dog, the siren of an ambulance,  the rustle of a dry leaf tumbling down the street, and my own breathing.  I forced the keen sense of hearing to the "real" music of the morning....and that is something to be thankful about!
