There is not much new to tell for today. School finished on Friday and I celebrated by doing nothing for the remainder of the day. The rest of the weekend was devoted to a deep cleaning of my room. It had gotten to the point of being cluttered and with the year winding down I thought it would be a good time to get rid of the old to make room for the new.
In addition to this, it had just become a little grimy. It is a daily struggle to keep the kalahari sand where it belongs, outside with the rest of the sand. Beyond that, unfortunately, even with care taken to be clean and orderly, dust and detritus accumulates. I figured this weekend was a good time to do more than just sweep but also introduce soap and water into the mix. I went so far as to be proactive about potential termite and ant entrances by filling them in with candle wax. With a vacation coming up, this was wise since last time I was hit pretty hard.
Finally, I managed to find the cricket that has been torturing me for the past couple of days. It was not responding to my verbal threats or pleas and my half-conscious, 2 AM searches were futile. Today it was captured and the moment was immensely satisfying. Simple pleasures.
Hopefully, the rest of this week I can deliver on some of the posts I have been promising and putting of for another day. It has been a digital cleaning weekend as well and I have a couple of half written ideas I should just finish and send out. We shall see.
