Hello my friends, I do hope you all had a great day. It was really nice here today, then of course any day the sun shines it's nice here.
My day started early as I wanted to go to Curves before the girls came in to clean. I usually have one girl cleaning but today there were two of them. Now my house is pretty clean so when they arrived at 10:15 they looked around and asked if there was anything special I would like done. I said definitely the floors but they felt it wouldn't take long to do them so they helped me to do other things that cleaning ladies don't normally do. We first went upstairs and they turned the mattresses on both beds, I gave them the linens and they made my beds up fresh, they also cleaned the wooden blinds before they started their normal routine and cleaned everything else. I was so pleased as I find it hard to turn the mattresses on my own and I had planned on wiping down my blinds next week. As they vacuumed and dusted their way downstairs I started doing laundry, it was mainly bedding but had to be done.
When they got to the main floor, one was in the half bath and the other was in the kitchen, they were just flying around. I took a cup of coffee and sat outside on my deck. Jenn, asked me if I wanted anything special done downstairs like inside the fridge, well I had just cleaned the fridge last week but I said let's change the living room around. I couldn't believe it they had everything placed where I wanted it in five minutes. Then they proceeded to give everything a good cleaning. They even cleaned the pictures on my walls, the mirror which had been over the couch, the wooden blinds in that room. They vacuumed everything, everywhere including the furniture.
They did a wonderful job and as I lay here tonight the house smells of Vim and furniture polish....it's a clean smell and I love it. What a nice day and I am so thankful to have won the draw! The house is spotless, I wanted to give each of them $20.00 as I wasn't paying for the clean and they normally charge $37.00 an hour for each girl, I thought the least I could do was give them something to buy a sandwich or something, but they wouldn't take it. I only knew Jenn as she is the one that comes to my home to clean for 2 hours each month and I always give her a nice gift at Christmas but I won't see this other cleaner. I was so pleased and just wanted to show my appreciation. I will mail a thank you card to the company next week. I am the only 2 hour clean they do and they are not taking on any more customers unless it's for the full 4 hours. I just don't need them here that long and it is quite expensive, now that I am looking at all they did maybe I do need them. Oh well, thank you Lord for the pleasant surprise of a free house cleaning day.
I did go to Curves this morning, honestly I was so tired I could of fallen to sleep during the drive there. It wasn't long before I was wide awake working those machines, I think of Diana every time I am there. The girls I work out with are funny and full of life. They are happy and it is infective, you know I started for the benefits of exercising, I think I'll stay for the great company. It doesn't matter what time of day you go there are always nice ladies around but I am used to going later, anytime between 11 and 1 o'clock and usually work out with the same people, it was a whole new group this morning.....still fun.
I really am tired tonight as every day has been busy for me lately except today. All I did was laundry, and a bit of ironing but I started the day tired so I am looking forward to a good night's sleep tonight.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments......Good Night my friends and God Bless......:-) Hugs
