I've also seen (having moved out some furniture that's been here since we moved in) just how dirty the carpet at my place is. So I think that over the next little while I have a new project. My vacuum cleaner is also a carpet washer - and the carpets are long overdue to be washed. I'm not going to try to do the whole house at once, but will try to do a little patch once or twice a week until it's done. That really is a big challenge.
Our Queensland heat wave is about to reach its peak tomorrow, so today I'm trying an experiment, one that I know will do terrible things to my electricity bill, but I hope will make life tolerable. I'm leaving my little portable air conditioner on all day, and turning on the evaporative air cooler in the lounge room and leaving it on - shutting whatever doors in the house I can so that I'm trapping that coolish air in as small a space as possible and seeing if I can actually keep the house tolerable for the day. If that fails, I'll turn everything off and retreat to a shopping centre or a City Council Library.
Really, if I can avoid going anywhere today, that would be good, as I'm still recovering from yesterday.
Stay cool, whatever you're doing today.
