The Dyson vs. everything else
Now Playing: Christopher Cross "Sailing"
There is nothing like some nice, calm music with which to start your day.
After a lot of false starts, we finally got Sears last night and purchased a new vacuum cleaner. I have to say that the Dyson came in a very close second to the one I chose, but it seemed heavy and a bit bulky, especially after trying out a canister vac by Kenmore. But, boy, does that machine SUCK (and I mean in a good way). It was able to pull up all kinds of stuff from the carpet. I guess you always go back to what is familiar, and for me, I grew up using a canister vac at my parents home, and find them to be easier to use. Plus, I like the little feature that tells you that the carpet is clean or not. :)
In preparation for Easter, I spent the afternoon yesterday visiting various grocery stores, buying our Easter ham, Easter Kielbasa, strawberries (for strawberry shortcake) and asparagus. I'm cooking dinner tomorrow as my Mom is still recovering from the flu. Yes, she is well enough to cook, but I'm happy to do it here.
And on the fiber front; I've been unable to card anything while my family room is still empty. I doubt we'll get it painted this weekend, and the furniture arrives on Wednesday. But it sure will be nice to be able to sit down and watch tv again. I miss my "Law and Order; SVU".
