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!

"The Hill Country" LBJ and Miniature Golf

What do they all have in common? Nothing except while waiting for "The Best Daughter" to be done with work today in San Antonio, we checked out the "Hill Country" (which about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio), visited the White House of the West, or more commonly known in these parts as LBJ's (36th President; Lyndon Baines Johnson) homestead and sprawling ranch (still in operation with considerably less acreage nowadays), and a super fun round of putt-putt golf once back to SA toward the end of the afternoon.

Thankful for the family to be all together once again and headed back to Austin (with a must pit stop at Buc-ee's; stopped on our way down as well) where we will explore for the rest of our time here. Lots of good food in Austin, great live music and adventure around every corner...or so we hope!



Some pics from today's adventures

These two aced this hole!

LBJ was the first Vice President and then Prez to have his "own" plane.
"The Western White House" - needs much needed repairs and tours have stopped until 2024

This large White Oak branch weighing several tons fell off the tree yesterday (they were giving outdoor tours until yesterday)
