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!

Winter Solstice 2017

The great news about the winter solstice is that, starting tomorrow, the the evenings will stay lighter a little longer. It’s slight, but noticeable, and I’m thankful for the most daylight we can muster! Today’s solstice is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the summer solstice! That’s a lot of darkness we all have to put up with...and cold temperatures too. 

A full moon would be awesome though, right? But they only come around every so often, like only 10 times since 1793. Next full moon on Winter Solstice...2094! Who’s in??



My photo is the Solstice Sunrise that only lasted about 3 minutes... I had to be quick to capture this on my early morning run!
