Gratitude Spiral: Day 315

Today, I’m grateful for a home with a central vacuum.

Thirty years ago, it seemed like a good idea, although I’d never heard of it before. Our house was being built and we were asked if we wanted central vacuuming. I’m so glad we said yes. In those thirty years, we’ve had the motor replaced once, but the whole system has held up well. Emptying the canister in the basement yesterday, after a day of cleaning, my appreciation was renewed.

Gratitude Spiral: Day 235

Today, I’m grateful for a new vacuum attachment.

After thirty years of slowly wearing down the bristles on my old vacuum brush head, I found and purchased a replacement. Will it make me want to vacuum more often? Probably not. 🙂 But it’s nice to know I can do it without scratching my floors now. Just one of those simple pleasures!
