89. ROBOT VACUUM
As the pandemic stretches on, I learned that Amazon Mexico does indeed deliver things to my rural mountain address that the local shops don’t.
I’ve found myself getting some creature comforts. Some bakeware — because my friend Gayle (Portrait #56) sent me a toaster oven. Homemade bread and cookies!
As the caretaker of three large rescue dogs, there is a daily battle against dog hair.
So I bought a robot vacuum from Amazon. It never arrived, after months of being told by the shipper: your order is on the way.
Amazon was really great and refunded me. But still. No robot vacuum for me. After trying a bunch of things, I settled on a Swiffer - with generic dry sweeping cloths that I dip in my own essential oil plus Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap concoction. Because the smell of Swiffer cloths makes me ill, and I like to make my own cleaning products. Not as a pandemic thing, but a normal thing.
Do you even care about these details?
