Sweeping the floor! (Actually I am dry-mopping the floor, I hope y'all don't mind)
Or at least part of the floor. The house is such a shaped that there's no way to photograph the entire floor at once. And the floor grooves are easier to clean with a rag.
Incidentally, an infant-sized cloth diaper fits wonderfully on my hand-me-down, repaired-with-glue&tape Swiffer
