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!

Amazon vs. Brick and Mortar

I don't mind shopping, of course, when "everything" I need is in stock. But how about when it's not? In the past two weeks I attempted to shop for a couple of things in brick and mortar stores, and both times, came up empty handed with what I wanted. Today, I went "hunting" for Terro Liquid Ant Baits, and the three stores I went to were all sold out of their inventory. I guess with all the rain we've had, everyone is battling the same marching ants in their homes as well (and ants are not my type of pets)!

So following these excursions, and once back in my vehicle, I immediately opened up my phone to the Amazon App and bought what I "needed", which took a total time of one (1) minute. My items will be delivered tomorrow; and, really, how easy was that?! Why don't I shop like that more is what I kept asking myself on the drive home? Well, after today, Amazon will now be my "go to" store from now on...except for groceries (l like to pick out my tomatoes, thank you very much) and shoes (I need to try on multiple pairs because even at a perfect 8.5 shoe size, I may still need an eight or a nine).

BSoleille! Amazon...a major retail disrupter...
