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!

There is An Adventure Around Every Corner...

...of our house, our garage and our yard! Let alone my sewing room! We are "flattening the curve" with our thoughts, actions, sewing, reading, cleaning & organizing, making good meals, and taking a scoot around the Crofton Parkway (3.9 miles for us). To top that off, we are trying to tackle some house projects that would have gone to the waaay back burner of the 'honey-do list' if it wasn't for the "mandated" shelter in place. Not only are we helping ourselves with brushing up on some things we have not done for awhile, we are helping our fellow man, and hopefully, flattening the curve of this crazy virus.

I believe wholeheartedly, that our homes, communities, states and our nation will see more silver linings than complaints in the days and weeks ahead. We have the chance to show the rest of the world that making a conscious commitment of staying and learning/working/dining/playing from home is all about to help the greater good in this entire fiasco. The hardest part is keeping the focus and dedication to this effort.

I'm cheering all of us on, that's about 350,000,000 in the USA.



Photos of BC (before coronavirus) and After photos of my fireplace; they are switched in the line-up below. Please note: I added this electric Puraflame http://www.puraflame.com/ fireplace unit (excellent choice); Sherwin-Williams paint in porcelain; and the mantel shelf from an Etsy site: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnjowgaWoodworks?ref=l2-about-shopname where the woodworker lives in Northern Nova Scotia. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and the freshness of a tired looking fireplace and hearth.

This guy helping with house a project! Many thanks though!
