1.141 code, cleaning

Tuesday, 4/21/2020

In the morning I zoomed in to an aerobics session that Veronica, our recently hired fitness person, had scheduled for 7am. I was the only attendee at that Zoom meeting. I did not share my video because I was only wearing shorts. So poor Veronica led her class of one, represented as a black square with my name in it, through half an hour of aerobics, enough to get me sweating a bit. Next time I’ll put on a shirt and share my video.

At 9am I realized the CH Writer’s group was to meet at 11am, and I hadn’t written anything. The “cue” for the week was “illness” so I threw together something about my aortic valve replacement. It went over well, although some of the others had really interesting and well-written pieces, better than mine.

During the morning I tidied up the code I wrote and tested it. I had completed Chapter 6 of the Crafting Interpreters book. Later in the day and after supper I went back and added two features to it based on some extra-credit “challenges” at the end of the chapter.

Just after lunch there was a knock, one of the guys from facilities delivering my Swiffer and my vacuum! The vacuum was a bit of a disappointment; it’s just a Dust Devil hand vacuum with a long handle and a floor head extension. No carpet brush. But I set to work.

First I went around with a rag and dusted all the horizontal surfaces. Getting all the dust onto the floor, right? Then I moved all the furniture onto the carpets. I swept the hard floor, then swiffered (swiffed?) it. I used both sides of one of the wet pads, turning it solid gray. I probably should have changed pads halfway.

It feels good to have that out of the way and have the tools to do it again next week.
