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!

Soccer Spring Season

Maybe the only thing about opening the "spring" season of soccer was the sunshine. Certainly the cold temperatures and wild winter winds weren't it. But it was great to get back out on the pitch once again, taking in all the fresh air and seeing some really great matches today! I am thankful for the good crews I worked with and look forward to many more games this spring, albeit a little warmer...(the layers worn included a 32 degree heat shirt; a cold-weather Under Armor long sleeved shirt, a wool turtleneck sweater; a fleece jacket with down; and a full down jacket; and then my referee jersey on top of all that!). Yes, I looked like the Michelin Man/Woman! And let's not forget the hat and two pairs of gloves, the tights, the shorts on top of the tights, then sweats on top of all that! But when I refereed in the Center, I did remove one down jacket and the sweat pants, in case I got too warm! Whew!
