Today I was grumbling to myself about needing to vaccuum again. You see, some genius thought it would be a good idea to make white carpet. Not white white, but really light - definitely in the white family. And another genius thought this was a good neutral choice to put in this house.
It's neutral all right. And it shows every speck of lint, dirt, etc. (If it were up to me, I would pick a brownish (not too dark) color with specks in it. You can't see the dirt and you can't see the lint!)
So I find myself vaccuuming almost daily.
But then I remembered Elisabeth in Peru.
She doesn't have white carpet. She doesn't have carpet at all. Her floor is dirt...not dirty, dirt.
So today I am thankful for my white carpet. It's clean and I have the means to vaccuum up those lint pieces.
