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!

Greetings Y'All from Texas!

My sewing machines will be silent for the upcoming week while visiting "The Best Daughter" in the great state of Texas. Our day started early in getting to our local airport, flying into Austin and renting a car to drive to San Antonio ("The Best Daughter" is working here). Bill, Ryan and I stuffed a lot into our day/afternoon by visiting the top sites (The Alamo and The River Walk) before meeting up with TBD for dinner in the Pearl District of San Antonio.

A round of drinks to finish the day at The Hotel Emma (it's National Margarita Day in case you are wondering) completed a great day of travel and sightseeing in this "up-and-coming" city (by the way, it was here for close to 50 years before we were the United States in 1776!). The locals are claiming that this is the "new" Austin; with craft breweries, boutique hotels and eateries and a good strong vibe for all their visitors descending on this charming city!

BSolielle! The bright side of Adventure Around Every Corner!
