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!

"Merry Christmas" on February 9, 2021

We all know the postal service is running a little behind, but come on! My order for Ryan's Christmas present was placed on December 9, 2020. I thought this was plenty of lead time before the Christmas holiday. Oh, how wrong I was. Ryan mentioned to me that he would like a larger cutting board instead of the ones in our repertoire—some barely bigger than a "postage stamp." After he cooks, grills and smokes, he typically needs to cut something (like a full chicken, or brisket). The smaller cutting boards do not cut it—pun intended! I took to the internet to find the "perfect" board so RyGuysBBQ can continue making delicious meals. I think I knocked it out of the park on the size (24"X18"), as well as the beautiful wood patina. I ended up purchasing the largest one they had because the reviews mentioned that you never want a smaller one. I heeded their advice for my purchase. I believe this piece of hardwood will last for generations! 

Christmas is a out of our sight, but today it was brought to the forefront after the delivery. "Merry Christmas, Ryan." He was very patient in waiting for its delivery. There was nothing we could do about that.
