Quilt With Us

For Christmas my DH gave me a slave.  Her name is Rhonda.  I've been trying her out for the last few weeks, and she has really met every expectation.  You just have to make a few accommodations for her, and her nose is to the grindstone.

Meet Rhonda, the Roomba:

Awesome gift!

Amazing!  A lot of people will benefit from this technology and engineering.

Yes, Barbara, I have one cat (see left).  She used to spend quite a bit of time under our bed, so there was quite a buildup of cat hair there.  Rhonda fits easily under the bed, (my regular vacuum doesn't) and the first time she went under, her bin filled up quickly.  She tells you when the bin is full.  Since then no problem.  Roomba has several models, and my DH wisely bought one designed especially for pet hair and with a HEPA filter.

Do you have pets? I look at those and think "my dogs will fill it up in ten minutes". Otherwise it looks like a real winner. Enjoy!

Okay, Rhonda does not mop or dust furniture.  She sweeps and vacuums hard floors and carpets in her own peculiar, but effective way.  She does not tangle lamp cords, and transitions between area rugs or carpet and flooring easily.  She doesn't get stuck in corners!  She figures out how large the room is and shuts off when she's done.  She has "cliff" recognition, and will not plunge down the stairs. If she is in the same room as her charging dock, she will trundle over and plug herself in, emitting a musical series of notes when she's successful.  She's pretty quiet for what she's doing (vacuuming). All I do is pick up the clutter.  I have trouble not regarding her as a pet!

Yes, Joan, she is allowed in the sewing room, but I don't leave Bernice, the Bernina, on at the same time.  You never know . . . .

Ooooh!  I was promised one of those.   Does she mop and dust?  Is she allowed in the sewing room?  Might have some mischief brewing if she and the sewing machine got to talking.

When I was up at the house I always wanted one of these.  But here in this small space I look forward to doing housework, cooking and even laundry.  I have to keep busy and it's a change from sewing and walking. Pretty pathetic, don't you think? lol

Congrats!  I had to go look her up.  (I know, I know - i'm a little behind the times.)  Sounds like a winner!  The current maid here certainly doesn't vacuum every day...  Seems like lately she's been behind on laundry, dishes AND quilting (gasp!).

Okay, Pam.  Talk to you tomorrow!

I envy you! I wondered how they really work! After I win the power ball lottery tomorrow...I'll have people to take over that job!
