1. My new blanket
2. The tiny, aged couple that came into the store today and remarked that shoes are not as simple as they used to be, he with his white socks pulled to his knees and her with her belt under the hang of her bosom
3. The floor fan that beats the heat back to a more reasonable, if still sweltering, level
4. That a recent rumour about me was laughably ridiculous
5. Dreaming out loud in the courtyard over coffee with a friend
Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things.
