The Eagle Has Landed
The sweetest sound is coming from my closet-sized kitchen. The dishwasher is purring away and there is not a drop of water on the floor. I realize this is a somewhat silly anxiety, but it's one I've had for the last few days. With a small hitch (an extra $57.50 for labor and a part) I am the very happy owner of a new dishwasher. The aroma of Fantastik with bleach drifts out from the kitchen and I am at peace.
As I had to clear off the counter I discarded spices that had long lost their scent and several bottle of vitamins that had expired. I am on a clearing, cleaning extravaganza and so delighted to start the new year -- in three hours -- with a cleaner, somewhat neater house.
My wishes, dear friends, is for a much more peaceful year and health and happiness for all of you and your families. My goal for myself is to be grateful, profoundly grateful, for all the blessings I have been given, including the friendship I find in Blogland. May we all be inscribed for a good year!
