Today was Helen's first day of cooking and cleaning at my house. This was completely my father's idea. I feel kind of uncomfortable about it. Helen is now in the kitchen cooking a homemade chicken pot pie and biscuits. I had to ride with her to get groceries this morning.
Don't get me wrong. I love Helen and she is like one of the family. I just feel uncomfortable with someone in my "space." I never was good at having someone underfoot. I guess I should just be grateful of this gift my father is bestowing upon me.
One thing I did get excited about was Helen started to read one of my Model Railroaders as she was dusting and cleaning in my den.
"Can I take this to my husband?" she asked. "He would love this hobby. He loves trains."
I smiled and said, "sure" always glad to bring someone new into the hobby. I told Helen to have him call me if he ever wanted to talk "shop" or Model Railroading.
Oh, if you could only smell the wonderful aromas coming out of my kitchen. It is driving Maggie crazy. I can't wait to eat in a few hours.
