It has been a long time since I've been alone in this house with someone here, alone..Everyone who lives here goes off to school, work and the place remains clean and tidy all day.
Today, I cleaned the floors and then went over everything with a clean white sheet which I allowed to collect dew while protecting the tomatoes overnight. I felt that the moon energy along with the living plant underneath would reflect some sort of intention on my part..and the sheets part to collect any fly away dust that has settled through the night..
I like clean stuff but I live with people who may be careless and self absorbed and the clutter builds up..
clutter is dust to me..things should be stowed if not in use.
I seem to have also collected a new house mate..the three day a week plan is now seven day..I feel like I need to let this happen and she does help with advanced homework..
she brings her own cooler, it is so cute..
she sleeps with one of the boys, but they aren't "sleeping" together..
"you know, we can put a sofa in there for you guys"
"no, no, we don't mind"
It is so weird..
