Linking to AWWWW MONDAY
Saturday morning Maria my cleaning lady arrived wet like a cat and in the dark. Ever since we have daylight saving it's dark in the morning and dark in the late afternoon. It's not very logical.
While she attacked the dirt and dust changed the bedsheets and was busy, I pulled myself together and continued the paper filing. I threw all letters and invoices away which were at least 2 to 3 years old and found myself in front of a huge paper mountain. Meanwhile I also had signed the cheques for Maria, which I get from the social insurance for less money, at least then she is insured and I can deduct the amount from the taxes at the years end.
When she was finished and wanted to go, we couldn't find the cheques anymore ! She was in a hurry to catch her bus otherwise she has to wait one hour for the next bus ! (take public transport).When she was gone, I emptied the bin with all the papers in it and .....found the cheques ! Was I happy ! I realized that I really have to keep an eye on myself not to do stupid things. I call myself already several times per day because I don't find my mobile.
In the afternoon, I fell asleep watching a movie and as usual had to rewind to the beginning, I had slept through the whole film.
Sunday morning it rained, it always or nearly rains on weekends.
Looking to the right and to the left, my decision was taken, I would not put a foot outside, I have breathing problems when it is so humid.
I just had closed the windows when the phone rang to this undecent hour where a retired woman living alone, usually still sleeps. It was Rick's Whist friend who had seen him the day before and told me that he should be more dressed that he was cold etc etc ! In the mornings I hardly can take care of myself and certainly not listen to problems which aren't problems at all. I mean it's nice of her to take care but too much is too much. After all there are the nurses and he can ring for another blanket when he feels cold. What could I do on a Sunday. Fortunately when I turned aroud I saw that my Hibiscus plant had bloomed ! She does it once in a blue moon and only one flower.
Even Miss Rosie didn't want to drink her rainwater, only because it rained and she feared for her fur !
This year I don't know how the year's end festivities will happen. Rick is so weak that if he doesn't put on some weight we can't take him home. He is still in bed, but started to watch TV again a bit, which is a good sign.
