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!

Christmas in April?

A blooming red amaryllis graces my windowsill a good four months after receiving one huge honkin' bulb for Christmas (thanks, Cathy Kimpel!). These beautiful red flowers make me happy, and according to a recent Rutgers study of nearly 150 women, looking at natural blossoms produces genuine smiles. I can certainly attest to that, and the fact they harness immense power. Power flower, per se, and a mood booster for at least three days. I think a lot of us can go at least a week being happy with one flower!
