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!

Retro Retreat at West River

The "Real Housewives" of the Southern Comforters Quilt Guild commenced this afternoon at the  West River, Maryland Retreat Center for a weekend of fun and sewing....50's style. Our fearless leaders (retreat planners), Janet McCabe and Karen Todd amused the crowds with our welcome packets of cats-eyes reader glasses; lipstick (deep reds and pinks), cigarettes (the candy kind), pearls, and last but not least, a spool of thread! Listening to the 100 top hits from the 50's and 60's on top of 25 sewing machines running full speed ahead makes for an interesting combination of head boppin' and sing-a longs even if we are bit off-key to the "spinning tunes" (streaming through iTunes).

Thankfully, the food "served" at tonight's dinner (potluck) was contemporary fare, though some "longed" for jello molds, meatloaf, TV dinners and tuna noodle casserole!

BSoleille! The bright side of singing, dancing and sewing to the "oldies" - retro style...
