a small thing to love: a broom

I'm not sure why I'm so fond of a good broom, but I am.

I like the kind with wooden handles and straw bristles, not plastic. I always drill a hole in the wood and add a loop or a ring to hang the broom, so the bristles don't warp from sitting on the floor.

I like a good broom so much, that about two months ago I splurged.  I spent $12 and I bought an upstairs broom, even though we already had a broom hanging in the kitchen.  First thing I did when I got home after buying the new broom:  drilled a hole and inserted a ring, and hung it in the hallway.  Now the boys don't steal the kitchen broom and leave it in their bedroom; they have a dedicated bedroom broom.

That's all.  I just like brooms.
