Hottest Day So Far

We were up at 5:45 am this morning to get ready for our dog walk with Jean and her dogs. It was already 69° at that time of the morning. By the time we got back from our walk, I was really sweating.
After Jean went home, Hiker and I had some breakfast and then I headed over to Wal-Mart. I hated getting out of the car to walk across the parking lot to the store because it was so hot and muggy, and it was the same leaving the store to walk back out to the car when I headed home.
Last week I mentioned that I was trying to vacuum my carpet and I kept having problems with my Dyson. The ball kept jamming and it had lost all of its suction. I got it working again for a while, but then I tried again today to vacuum and had the same problem. So this afternoon, I headed up to Bed, Bath & Beyond and bought a Shark Rocket Professional Performance Plus Upright Vacuum.
I had always wanted a Dyson so about 2 ½ years ago, I purchased one for around $300.00 I loved it at first. I thought it was really good vacuum until last week when I started having the problems with it. Several people on Facebook told me that they too used to have Dyson’s and ended up getting rid of them after a few years. Most people told me they bought the Shark and that they like it so much better.
The Shark was $199.99 at BB&B and I had a 20% off coupon, so I think I got a pretty good deal. Like the TV commercials claim, a Shark is about 1/3 less than a Dyson.
I had purchased the Dyson with the ball because now that I’m older, I wanted a vacuum that was easy to maneuver. The Shark has a swivel steering and it feels like it is self-propelled when moving it forward, so it is very easy to maneuver.
As I send this daily blog, it is 105° on my patio and humid. Feels very stick and nasty outside.

  1. 105 degrees is too hot to do anything. Hope The Shark gives you many years of service. May your Dyson rest in peace.
