Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) This was a good week!  Yesterday, when I took my computer back to the store that had fixed it and also broken it,
I was told it wasn't worth fixing.  I would have had to pay $100 for parts alone.  I was very upset because they had broken the part that connects the monitor to the back.  This just got worse.  When I took my laptop into the store, the young man who waited on me said, "Whoa, that's not good."  I was then told, it would be better to buy a new computer.  Since I didn't have the money saved for a new computer, I was really upset.  Later that night, I received a call from the owner of the store.  He said that he would pay for the parts if I would agree to pay $25 for labor.  Even I knew that was a deal!  I won't have to buy a new computer right now!  That was so nice to hear!

2) Yesterday, I had the dishwasher repairman come over to look at my dishwasher.  I was afraid that he would tell me that I would need a new dishwasher.  I had smelled something burning.  Whew!  Good news!  He had to fix the cords which had worked their way towards something hot.  They were melting.  He was finished in about a half an hour!  I don't need a new dishwasher!  Yahooooo!

3) Like a cherry topping an ice cream sundae, our high was 52 degrees!  This was January 5 in Minnesota!  Wow!  How much better can things get?

Wow, that is great about your computer and dishwasher. The weather is kind of off kilter, but it is great that you are having warm temps in Minnesota.

Isn't it grand when a plan just seems to come together...
