This week seemed like it went by pretty quickly—late summer always feels that way! As for good things showing up, well, it was a quiet, peaceful week, which is generally a good thing. Not much out of the ordinary, though, with the small exception that I bought a pack of steak knives.
The old knives had gotten dull, with faded handles, so I’m sure they must have been around for many years. Worn-out things like that often get overlooked, although they are mildly annoying. It’s not until after they have been replaced that the contrast between old and new becomes much sharper, as with the steak knives themselves.
