|She dreams of Paris too.|
But since most of our home is hardwood I had yet to really test her skills. She sat quietly and politely by our front door, waiting to be called into action. Tonight I used her on small rugs and then on the hardwoods and she excelled at both. I'm very well pleased with this new servant.
The best part? The work I had done on her was fairly simple. I didn't have them fix the light (though I may later). She simply got a tune up, cleaning and a replacement on the brush I believe and was out of there costing me less than $50. She may not be the fanciest, what with her worn tan color and tiny tear in the part that holds the bag, but she seems capable of sucking tufts of Sophie's fur from a couple inches away. I've decided that nothing sucks like a Hoover (though she's a lady all the way)!
*her name comes from a movie with Angela Lansbury about a cleaning woman who dreams of (and reaches that dream) of going to Paris to buy a Dior dress.
Day 9 of Thankfulness I was thankful for a beautiful day on beautiful grounds to spend time with the husband taking photos. On Day 10 I'm thankful for an old vacuum that made my life easier!
