I love how the little things make me SOOO happy! So today I was out and about showing houses in the 400 degree heat (you have to love living in Puerto Vallarta in the summer) I found a Frangipani flower tree and there was one beautiful fragrant perfect little flower just waiting for me.
I had shown this particular house before a few months back to my clients, actually the same clients we returned with today. I remembered that this property had several of thise wonderfully beautiful flowering plants. So I picked the Frang' and proceded to wear it in my hair the rest of the day! At one point I was in a meeting with a real estate developer and kept smelling this very lovely scent, I thought they had a great candle or air freshener...............turns out the Frangi hanging out in my hair above my ear was smelling up the entire room! Yum!
As some of you know I am on the quest for a person to share my apartment with me for a few months. I've spent the last 3 days meeting, interviewing and swapping text messages with possible "roomies" the one I really wanted to move in called me today and kindly let me know he is looking for something more permanent for a year or more! DARN IT! Oh well onward and up ward. Back to the reason for writing the above. So if someone is to move in, I think it is only fair we start off with a really clean house. So my friend who helps me around my place Delphi (she is such a doll I just love her, I don't know what I would do without her!!)She has spent the last 2 days at my house cleaning. Now, when I say cleaning I mean CLEANING, beds moved, closets cleaned out, pantry totally cleaned out shelves wiped and organized, all dishes taken out of cupboards and washed (I don't have a dishwasher either) refrigerator totally cleaned out (gross I hate that job)balcony scrubbed, bbq grill cleaned, laundry washed, ironed and folded.................Not sure exactly what I have done to deserve a person as kind and wonderful as her in my life but I am GRATEFUL, THANKFUL AND APPRECIATIVE FOR HER!!! When I got home I walked in to the house and started to cry, I was so happy to come home after a long (but successful day) to a sparkling clean house! I always make it a point to call Delphi after she comes to my place to thank her for doing such a great job, always want her to know how much I appreciate her!!! Tonight I called her with tears in my eyes!!! I expressed my gratitude!! So that there is why I think it's SOO great to appreciate the little things like a flower and a clean house!
