Pumpkin Spice??!!!!??

 

Pumpkin Spice

Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. These are the spices that are used to make a pumpkin pie. As a baker for half my life I have made many pumpkin pies and mmmmm they can be tasty.

Then one year a popular coffee shop came up with the idea to flavor its beverage with these common spices and sell it to the general, unawares public.

Of course that was not the end of it all. Other popular coffee shops started selling a pumpkin flavored coffee as well.

I think that the pumpkin spice craze has reached insane levels. Everything can be bought with pumpkin spice flavor added to it. I reached the conclusion that this fascination with pumpkin spice has reached epic proportions today when I was at one of my customers and she had Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses sitting on a table.

Keep an eye on the sky for the falling pumpkins.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

Chilli The Chinchilla

Adventures In Maid Service

One of the things that is really fun about doing maid service is getting to see many different pets and I have a load of cats and dogs in my life as well as many other kinds of pets.

This is the tale of Chili the chinchilla.

This is Chili.

He belongs to one of our newer customers and is very friendly.

He also enjoys rolling around in his little ball.

 

Sadly, a couple of weeks after filming this little video, when we got to our customers home we discovered Chilli had past away. And by discovered I mean that our team was the first ones to see that Chilli had passed.

 

RIP Chilli

When we told the lady of the house what we had discovered she informed us that Chilli had been their daughters pet and that she was at camp and would not be home until the following day.

The daughter is between 11 and 12 years old, her brother is between 8 and 9 years old. When the son heard about Chilli he started to put together a little box with all of his sisters favorite treats. He also made her a condolence card to giver her when she got home from camp and found out about Chilli.

It makes me feel good to see this kind of caring between siblings it is so rare.

Adventures In Maid Service

 

Adventures In Maid Service

This is an introduction to a feature I will be doing here on Random Thoughts. It may also be considered a little about me page as well.

For a living I work in my family’s maid service company, by company I mean there are five of us who are part of the company.  Mom does the books, dad is the head of operations, I am second banana which basically means that I am operations and one of my cousins and her husband round out the full crew.

Cleaning houses is our main function but with it are also some other cleaning type functions. New constructions, janitorial jobs, spring and fall cleans and just “we are having a party could we get out house cleaned” cleanings.

In my work I get to meet many people, see many different homes and also come across some interesting stories. My intent with Adventures in Maid Service is to give some of these stories a place to be seen.

I will be telling stories that may be funny, crazy or just really heart felt stories as they come to me,
