I am doing well. My new caregiver started today. She expressed shock at the distance she had to drive and wasn't happy that her supervisor had misinformed her about that.
I made sure I got a shower, even thought the bathroom is very cold. That was an absolute necessity. She changed my bed and vacuumed the floor in my room, and did other chores that had been let go for too long. I tried to make her time worthwhile so that if she doesn't come back I can handle things for a short time.
I had her put away the dishes in the drainer so that I could wash the few that I have waiting to be washed. That way she knows where at least some of the dishes go. I told her where in my "pantry" to find vegetables, and fruits. She checked out the frig, which needs cleaning. She was one busy lady, but I feel much better this evening. It is so nice to be clean again.
I didn't get out myself today. I sent her to buy some water for me. That was a big help because I was totally out of water for drinking and you know how much water I need in a day. I could boil some water in a pinch, but then it still would be colored with sediment and not at all appetizing. It is always safe to drink, just not appealing.
Our water is full of iron, like that in Michigan. It is quite brown coming from the tap. I have gotten accustomed to the nice clear water other places. but here our water is influenced by Mount Rainier and it is primarily iron. I find it interesting that on the other side of the river and about seven miles further from the mountain the water is clean, though still not soft.
Patty, I want to check out all those recipes. I don't often make muffins, I don't have a muffin pan, (I used to but it "disappeared". However. I do bake muffin mixes into small cake pans. That works. I also use them for pancakes. That works too.
Glenna, I am so sorry you can't get any information about Sara. I am sure you find that frustrating. I certainly would.
I have tons of e-mail to read and to which to respond so I'm going to get out of here for now. I'll see you tomorrow.
