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!

Sunday Night Lights

It's mid-January, and luckily, the mid-Atlantic states are enjoying a short reprieve of Old Man Winter; enough so, that I got to referee the first two games of the year...and all outdoors (55 degree start, and 50 degree end).  The soccer was fast and furious for state cup "qualifiers", although they were actually "glorified" scrimmages. It did not matter, since the 35 minute halves went by super fast (lots of running, and I love that!). Two good things about these games in January; no mosquitoes and low humidity. I had a swig of water between games, but certainly did not "need" it. However, these games were refereed with only a center (no assistants), and that was tricky on a big wide field, but ultimately, both games worked out very well.

BSoleille! The bright side of everyone understanding the "mission" of the games and playing under the lights on a Sunday night. What's not to like about that?
