small blessings

I think I mentioned in a post an accident I had more than a year ago. I have also forgotten about it. Suddenly I received a call from the workshop that attended to my repairs and claims. She said they would be sending me a cheque as compensation for the loss of use of the car during the days the car was in the workshop. It was an unexpected pleasant surprise. I also couldn't remember if I made such claim. Anyway, the cheque arrived - $360.

In a post below I said I ate green bean soup at my friend's house not long ago. Then I heard from the news that there seemed to be a shortage of green beans in China and prices have gone up. Prices have also shot up here. If I had visited my friend later, probably there would be no green bean soup.
