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!

Whetting the Whistle of Summer

The other day I posted about juicy heirloom tomatoes, and nothing has changed with them, but the season is not that long for 'em, unfortunately, so eat them up. But then I cut open a sugar baby watermelon we bought coming back from the beach on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. While at the roadside stall I glanced toward the wooden bin that housed a hundred of them or so and decided to saunter over; the other veggies I selected were placed on the table by the register. When I inquired about the taste and ripeness, the young lady behind the counter said they were delicious. I bought two (how's that for some slick marketing!)

When I cut one of them open the other day, juice was spilling out all over the place. I kind of frantically grabbed a glass and started to pour the watermelon juice into the glass with each cut and slice I made. After the whole melon was cut into small and manageable pieces to eat, I had a full glass of the juice and melon remnants. It was outstanding! And refreshing! And another taste of summer! Try it...you may like it!

It goes great with a little watermelon vodka.
