Today I am thankful for having shutters on my windows in Geneva. I actually did not know these existed until a friend stayed at my place and I came home and they were shut! Up until then, the sun would shine in early every morning through my white curtains! I chose white because I like the simplicity of that colourless colour. I actually have to wash them soon as they have not been cleaned ever since I put them up. But I was worried about the sunlight coming in before and that is why I never took them down…but now I know that I have shutters and they are okay to be removed for a day or two.
I am thankful for finding my thick socks yesterday in an old bag at the bottom of my closet. It is starting to get cold here and I was wondering where I would find such socks in Geneva. Socks are hard to find in this city. Fun socks at least are not easy to come by. And the cost of 5 pairs back at home is what I would pay for one here! I found my brown polka dotted ones. I have them in my purse in case my feet get cold. Right now they are keeping my ipad warm.
And this weekend I have to be thankful for the CSI Miami dvd that I found in a box. I do not have cable. The movie store down the road has been closed down. I cannot get netflix and sites such as Sidereel do not work half the time because they are blocked in Switzerland! I needed something to do on Saturday night and Mr. Caine kept me company. Okay fine, I know it is unrealistic, but I like the shots of Miami. I imagine myself on a beach when I see that.
So what do you have to be thankful for today??
