Cheesy Spaghetti Squash with Raisins

For the first time, a guest left because she didn’t have hot water, she said. Well, the guests that had left that morning had hot water for the entire two weeks. The electricista checked everything to do with the calefon, and it was good! And he got hot water. I changed the battery, just in case, but told them it probably had to do with the low water pressure. When the pressure is low, it can’t spark the calefon. Anyway, she left. Such a bummer, but probably a good thing as the woman seemed awfullyyyy…uh…nit-picky is the nicest word I can think of. She complained of a spider in the house. “Well, I can get it out for you, ” I offered. But I hated to tell her, it could very well be there again!                                                                                                                                                                                                                   There was dirt under the screen on the front door. Well, there wasn’t dirt five minutes before she got there, but there would be again with this wind, in another few minutes.                                                                                                          There are a couple of holes in the mosquito net. Okay, I can mend those. And did! “Were you using the mosquito net,” I asked? “No, I didn’t need it.”                                                                                                                                                            Oh.
