Ok, so the maid came 2 weeks ago and is coming tomorrow. While I was excited for a clean house, I said “meh” when I got home. Some things weren’t done.

To her defense, she said she didn’t have enough time to get to everything and I believe it. My house isn’t big, but for one person to clean the WHOLE thing, it would take more than 2 hours.

That’s why I hired someone.

In other news. I started on my vegetable garden! We’ve got about 60% of the ground weeded and should finish the last of it tonight. The space is huge but I’m starting small with onions, sweet corn, carrots, cucumbers, watermelon, pumpkin, cauliflower, and…that’s it. The previous owners had a huge garden and took a lot of it to the Farmer’s Market.

Maybe one day I’ll have one that big. If you have gardening tips, please send them my way. I’m a newbie.

And, in one last other news: I’m going to try to make refried beans this week. The one time I tried, I ruined them. RUINED! (and the pan too) I was newly married and wanting to cook all sorts of stuff. After that fiasco, I never wanted to try them again. Now, I have way more knowledge and confidence in the kitchen so I’m going to try them again. I’m pretty sure I know where I went wrong. Wish me luck!
