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!

London Day #3

There are "palaces" and then there are "palaces"; football palaces, if you will. We were thankful to stroll by the "traditional" palaces of Kensington and Buckingham, along with the thrill of being immersed into the Arsenal "Palace" (yesterday), and today at the Craven Cottage "Palace."  

The passion and history associated with many of the football (soccer) teams goes beyond anything like other sports the world over. The "fixtures" are electric, the players skilled and swift beyond measure, and the fans chant and sing throughout most of the match. 

Today’s match was another London derby with Tottenham Hotspurs beating out the home team, Fulham Whites, 2-1 (scoring the winning goal in stoppage time in the 93rd minute). It was considered by the fans a "gutting" loss, but we were happy to sit and cheer on the home team!

Other touring around London rounded the fun day (Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey, though closed on Sunday, and walking and admiring all the beautiful sights). 

Dinner with our friend Greg Lubin (in London working on a romantic comedy movie) finished our day. #grateful
