I heart Kenmore

January 4, 2008

When I was in college, the gift of an appliance was strictly verboten. My best friend once wept for days after her boyfriend gave her a chef’s knife for Christmas.  But now I love appliances and utilitarian gifts.  As you can probably guess, I’m especially fond of my new Kenmore canister vacuum.  It’s sleek and quiet and has multiple attachments.  It’s not that I like doing housework–it’s that old thing about having the right tool for the job.

Next major chore: insulate the basement. With temperatures dipping below 0, it’s time to make some changes around here. Until then, you can find me on my sofa wrapped in a blanket holding a mug of tea.
