The mornings here are still remaining cool, last night we experienced a tad bit of rain. I thought I heard it while I slept but maybe I just felt it since I've given to sleeping with ear plugs now that we have a mockingbird planted, whistling and chirping the night away just outside our bedroom window.
I went up to see the deer and I was wondering if size was an issue in the deer community. (smirk)
We have a visiting dog and I shouldn't admit this to you but I just felt like escaping this morning so I went on a dog free hike. I was reminded of the Anne Tyler book where the mother is sitting on the beach with her arguing children and she heads back to their rented, vacation home to make snacks but boards a bus instead and starts a new life. I forget the title but the concept was probably every mothers fantasy at times.
I shouldn't admit to how good it felt tromping though all the dry stickers and not worrying about Banjo's feet or having to brush weeds out of her/their fur once back home.
I liked the way spiders zizzed on zip lines during the night hours from one cactus heart to the next.
I carted a few relics home this morning but what I really wanted to talk about is design....product design.
I'm sure we are all on the same page with this one, as vacuum cleaners go, this is a pretty good one, it does the job but the only thing that has changed since the electrolux days is they've added wheels instead if skis. I despise dragging around the reluctant R2D2 behind me and trying to keep it from crashing into everything. The upright is a worse solution, trying to fit it beneath beds and furniture. Give me a backpack version with an extra long cord and I'll be happy.
Sending love out your way, Ro
