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!

Summer Soccer

I must admit that refereeing on a hot summer day (on turf) is blazingly hot for sure! Thankfully, all three games were fairly good soccer, evenly matched teams, and 35 minute halves which made it tolerable to be out there under humid conditions and full July sunshine. Iced cold water was the ticket at half time and in between games for all the players, coaches and referees to "cool" off for a few moments. My gear was soaking wet and "wringer worthy" after the three game set. A huge sigh of "Ahhhh" when I got to my car and cranked the air conditioning at full blast until I was comfortable. Now that is truly something to be thankful for and greatly "needed" on a day like today.

BSoleille! The bright side of vehicle air conditioning!
