Yep. New cleaning lady. Started today. Did a great job. My apartment is old and will never sparkle, but she came close. Seems like a nice lady.
Funny how things turn out sometimes. I am perfectly content to live alone and to see nobody except family. Now I have nurses coming in three days a week and a cleaning lady once a week. I thought I would hate having people come and go but I find I really don't mind. Everybody is pleasant and all seem to have a working sense of humor. It helps that they all do such a good job.
The heat wave continues. The humidity was over 90% early this morning, but has gotten better as the day progresses. Heat and humidity aside, I have canning to do. Several bags of frozen corn and peas are waiting. There are several bags of ham bones ready to cook down for ham and bean soup. I would like to get those canned up by Monday when my next grocery order goes out for Thursday delivery. Duane set up my big electric roaster for the ham bones and I hope that it won't heat up the kitchen as much as cooking them on top of the stove would.
I am having one more lazy evening, messing about with some genealogy research for a cousin of mine and then no more excuses. Time to hit the preps. I fear if all the hate and discontent that seems to be growing in our country keeps ramping up as it has been, it won't take much to ignite a firestorm of violence. Whatever happens, we need to be as ready as possible.
