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!

Inching Closer to Those Paint Brushes

A comedy of errors started our renovations today, first with a spillage of green paint on the "new" driveway (don't ask). Luckily, it was pouring rain (in addition to using the garden hose to continue rinsing it off), that the stain is no longer visible to the naked eye! Whew! Then loads of prep work that included more cleaning of the room, shopping for supplies and finally, three trips to the waste management center (AKA dump). These trips were to toss carpeting and padding (carefully cut out and wrapped up by Jodie); a sawed off and contorted queen boxspring (but first we had to buy a 15" tool box saw), and finally, a super resistant queen mattress that did not play well with getting it into a 2003 CRV until a male neighbor drove by the house and we flagged him down to help us! 

The painting party starts at 9am! We are ready...now...finally
