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!

Will All This Fit in the Suitcase?

"The Best Daughter" was in town recently for a visit and prefers to travel "light." That means one carry-on suitcase and a bag so she can traverse through an airport and into an Uber/Lyft with ease. When she arrived to the house, she began "living out of her suitcase" and spreading a lot of her items around the suitcase, not keeping too much in it...ahem. If one took a good look at it, you could say the suitcase "vomited" its contents with no hope of going back in...ever.

However, if you guessed that everything fit right back in it when it was time to leave, you guessed correctly! Who would have thunk that? We were all amazed when she eloquently "squeezed" everything back in successfully; with no need to sit or stomp on it to zip it closed. That's some kind of packing for sure; and by gosh, all that stuff was packed for approximately a two week stint of travel in that one "little" suitcase.

BSoleille! The bright side of "packing light."
