It's so beautiful at the lab today with the sunlight streaming through the windows and lighting up the leaves of all my plants. I love sunlight through leaves so much, it really makes me happy! (At the lab I have many plants... peppers and tomatoes and squash and snow peas and ivy and jade and a spider plant and another vine...)
The sky is the most perfect color blue and there are no clouds in sight. It's quiet here; I'm the only one here for several bays.
I don't know why I don't come into the lab more on weekends... after the hump of getting there, the lab is a very nice place to be. (Although I think the problem often is that I can't do laundry/dishes/cleaning at the lab, and I get very frustrated that I have to choose between being an excellent and devoted student and having a clean house.)
This morning (well, afternoon) I cleaned my living room. Moved the sofa by the convector, vaccumed under it, around it, in between the cushion... found that the mice had discovered the gerbil food that I had spilled and were all over it. (uh oh) I feel a lot better after having cleaned stuff though, hopefully the mice will stay gone. I also threw some things away and that made me feel really good. And kinda sad, but throwing away old clothing with holes or old bedding with holes is necessary sometimes. I keep reminding myself that if I need something, I can always buy it for myself! I don't have to save old things in case I might need them.
