September 26, Sunday.
I woke up at almost 9am. It was already late. Worshio service starts at 9am and we haven't eaten breakfast yet. We had some porkchop during breakfast, and in addition to my meal is my brother's nagging about me waking up late all the time.
Way to start the morning eh? Good thing, it didn't ruin my mood because it was such a wonderful day and I shouldn't be dwelling on something negative.
At 9am, worship service started and magically, it's all good. All negativities forgotten.
Excerpt from the worship service:
I am saved,
I am sealed and,
I am secured by the Holy Spirit.
You must be wondering by now how this is related to mundane and so here it is, after the worship service, the cleaning begins.
At 10:30am, me and my niece sweep the whole surrounding outside home while my brother in law waters all the plants.
I really do love the trees in our surroundings but there are so many dry leaves that we have to clean and it is so tiring. But the sweat is all worth it once you see how clean it is. When you look around and all you see is green, without dry leaves and other trashers somewhere. Clean surroundings is just so satisfying, plus the green leaves from the tree and the fresh wind that is blowing on your skin. Therapeutic, indeed.
After the outside, the day is still long so I decided to finally clean my room. I have been busy the past week, I just want to rest but the sight of my mess is making me more restless that's why I have to clean.
I started with removing the curtains. Then I opened the windows to let the air go out and go in from my room.
Next is I used the curtains to cover my stuffs before I remove all the dirts, dusts and slider webs at the ceiling. I can't believe the ceiling is that dirty!
I also throw unnecessary stuffs which has no use anymore to lessen the things that is making my room more messier than it is.
I also removed the sheets from my bed, sprayed an anti-bacterial spray and just let it be for a while. I also removed the pillowcase from the pillows. I sprayed an anti-bacterial spray on the pillows too and I also put them under the sun to remove unwanted smell.
At that time, all the dirty sheets, pillowcase, and blanket are scattered around the floor, as well as the dirt from the ceiling so I cleaned that up first.
Lunch time came so I have to stop cleaning for a while. We had a good lunch, paired with a ice cold coke because it was really hot, I hae to go back cleaning.
Time to put on another set of clean sheets and I sprayed anti-bacterial spray for the last time. I also get the pillows from under the sun, put on pillowcase, sprayed anti-bacterial spray and the bed is all set.
Also, I forgot to mention that I also cleaned the electric fan earlier that day so assuming the it's already dry, I get it from outside and I set it up again. Clean electric fan with no dust, finally!
I changed the curtains too and sweet the floor again and again until I was satisfied.
Lastly, I sprayed a disinfectent and room spray all over the room and now it smells like lemon everywhere.
This is just me exaggerating but the electric fan feels like blowing some fresh air after cleaning.
I was done cleaning by 2pm, I look around the room, sniffed at the air and that was really satisfying. It smells fresh, everything is clean and organized that I feel more energized rather than tired because of the cleanliness.
I then took a shower, it was also relaxing, it took me longer than usual because I feel so dirty after cleaning throughly. After shower, I babysit for a bit, next thing I knew, it's ready 4pm. I slept, woke up at 7pm, had a nice dinner with the family and then I did the dishes afterwards.
All in all, I really had a good day. My body feels tired but somehow, I feel so relaxed.
Cleaning is mundane but for me who doesn't like seeing mess, who doesn't like it when it's dirty, cleaning can be really therapeutic.
The progress I'm making while cleaning, and the end result of what I did is giving me some sort of satisfaction. It brings me relaxation, it brings me peace, it makes me feel good.
Not everyone likes cleaning, or other mundane things like washing the dishes and folding the clothes, but for me, I find peace in it. I get to think clearly as I do it. It gives me peace, it gives me relief.
It must be mundane but it can be therapeutic.
Maybe your room is also messy right now, try to do some cleaning and maybe you'll also find it to be therapeutic.
Hey there folks! This was what made me occupied whole Sunday. And it was a time well spent for me.
And I just really want to share how everything smells so nice right now. Clean sheets! It is so nice to lie down and sleep.
Anyways, thank you for reading this far even though I basically just tell about my whole day in here. It's really not interesting so thank you so much for reaching this far.
