I did the last scheduled cleaning my mother allowed me to do today. I'll bet I can managed to get her to allow me to continue to clean her home at some point, but for now I don't think she'll want me to do it for a while. I'm glad I managed to get her home cleaner than it was, seeing that I got rid of a lot of dust and mold that was starting to gain. It's amazing how much dirt starts to accumulate when one's eyes aren't working well.
What's even better when I'm cleaning is that mom feeds me and sends me home with leftovers, so I didn't have to think about what to make for dinner today.
We were on the edge of a rain front, so I got to see a bunch of rainbows both on my way there and my way home. I think that nature is trying to let me see the beauty that exists on the earth. I could have easily simply seen the rain that was falling on my windshield and got grumpy because of it or I could see that it was just the edge of a light rain and enjoyed it. I decided to see the beauty in the storm.
It's supposed to snow tomorrow. Perhaps I should get around to bringing in my garden stuff, I'm not sure how low of a temperature the rechargeable battery will handle, so I better get them in soon, the company said there was no low that the items could handle, but I'm not sure if they know how cold Minnesota gets? I know batteries freeze and I enjoy my gnome and windchimes.
My mother said that she's going on a diet again tomorrow. I hope that I can give her some good pointers, it's never too late for someone to learn, but I'm still not sure if she's ready to really look at her eating habits. She still gets snippy at me when I try to help her see what may not be working for her. She always says she just eats fruits and veggies and one meal, but I know that there's more to it than that, I just can't see if for sure unless I see what she's really eating. I could help if she lets me, but I don't think she wants that help. We'll see I guess.
I give her ideas about things, but she always gets negative about it. Perhaps next year's garden will help again and at least reduce the amount of pesticides we're all eating, I fear she's sensitive to them and just won't allow herself to see that.
