That I planted white petunias in the “garden”.
For the sun streaming in the balcony door.
That the children, though both have colds and fevers, are getting some fresh air.
For the sewing machine, with which I have completed my first project. (New napkins, which turned out usable. Thank you to all for the lovely suggestions! Now to find some fabric!)
For a new-to-us Vacuum Cleaner Of My Own, which, after two years of going down three flights and across the parking lot for the weekly use of one, feels like an indescribable treasure. Imagine being able to just whip out the vacuum and clean the flat! I’ve already used it twice in twenty-four hours. Couldn’t help myself.
And lastly, perhaps most importantly, for the fact that Norah’s favorite animal is a pig.
This means she will not be asking us for a puppy.
