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!

Earth Day Week...

A visit to Kelleys Island, Ohio, during Earth Day (week) has been two fold: one, to visit with Jodie and Scot Smith, and two, to help with the Longpoint/Island-wide and shoreline clean-up. Can you guess what we found the most of besides bottles and cans? Mylar balloons! At least 15 of them that are quite detrimental to the wildlife that roam this island. We also found a lot of styrofoam; lighters; one flip flop from its pair; fishing equipment and one large tire! We actually filled up several large black garbage bags that filled the back of a small pick-up truck.

The best gift after cleaning up all day was the absolutely gorgeous sunset in all its glory along the Western shore of Lake Erie.
