To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
  - a before picture of the floor
  - an action shot of you sweeping the floor
  - an after picture of the floor
  - OR a 2-minute video of you doing this

Well,  I'm stuck at work for the next hour getting cleaning done waiting for last 2 clients.   May as well "sweep a floor" then!

It's a dog training day center and it's been damp and rainy for a week.  There is dog hair stuck everywhere.

With harvesting well and truely in full swing in our surrounding farms, dust is kicked up at an incredible volume. I converted a corner of our old Corner Store Building into a sewing studio earlier on this year and have discovered that straight up dirt accumulates on the wooden floors every day, floating in through our open eves. So! Sweeping every morning and every afternoon it is till we can get the funds required to enclose them. The nesting doves will not be pleased.
