Beating the rugs, sweeping the floor

Having two old cats, and living in a room with old wood floor, means having rugs that can be washed, at least twice a week.

It's actaully rather cathartic and meditative, to take up the rugs, take them out and beat them, then stuff them in the washer, and then return to my room and sweep. In a couple of hours, I will have nice clean rugs down on the floor, next to a nice tightly made bed, and it will make me feel good.

One nice thing about working from home is, I can do things like that, as meditative breaks every hour or so from the braincooking work that is writing software.
