Somehow this one seems familiar, but I suppose I always have something to be grateful about. Right now I have just got back from a shopping trip, so let’s be grateful for the food I bought. Mr. Swiss came with me, poor man. It was his own free choice, I am still not sure if I am grateful that he came or that he is grateful that he accompanied me. I have an app on my iPad/iPhone for the store and I can see all my cash desk receipts on it. It is quite interesting to see how much rebate I get on certain items, that I did not expect. But, just a moment. What is that one. Someone spent 3.30 Swiss francs for a coffee in the restaurant? Of course I told my Mr. Swiss to have a rest in the restaurant whilst I did the shopping. Now he is annoyed that the computer (iPad in this case) sees everything. I explained that I find it fun to see everything I buy and the rebates on the prices. He finds it a liberty from the store, but I suppose not everyone is grateful for the online view of what you have bought. Anyhow we both survived.
He was not grateful for the air conditioning in my car as we drove home and began to fiddle with the knobs causing a draught on my side of the car. I suppose old habits are hard to break. Otherwise I am grateful for my caramel cream and the Lindt chocolates I have at home.
Otherwise do not expect too much from my feelings of gratitude. Everything costs money.
And the wonderful place where I live with the greenery, trees and everything – even that is not free. We pay for the care through our local taxes.
