120 this cloudy morning, 92 at bedtime last night.

Slept very poorly last night and when I finally got a couple of hours of sleep I had terrible nightmares!! Feeling really lousy today.

It is 58° right now and sprinkling, they say 63° for the high, but I doubt it will get there. Overnight prediction 42°. We are in for a cooling trend and rain.

Thanks for the input everyone! A Shark corded will be the one for me I think.

12,008 steps yesterday.

So sorry to hear that Wally. Take care, do what you can, and pop in every once in a while when you can.

I haven't posted here for a couple of days and probably won't for a while.  Right now I am having issues and just can not do near as much as I want to.  Primarily it is muscle pain and my back and legs are making it hard to be up to where I think I should be.  I sent a message to my doctor and she sent me an information sheet on Fibromyalgia. I looked up the symptoms and I guess that is a possibility.  I seem to fit many of the symptoms.  If that is the case I guess it is just something you have to learn to live with.  Any way right now I don't want to post daily steps because all I am doing is trying to make the 250+ steps/hour if I can.  It has mostly you and I Barbara that have been posting here and I don't want to leave you alone but I think it is best if I don't really consider total steps right now.

106 this morning.  Headline in the paper says it will be "scorching" in the South West states the next few days.  Well, it is supposed to be in the mid 90s here and to many that might qualify as "scorching" but for here it is really normal.  Soon enough it will be over 100 and then it will be "scorching".
Barbara, I have a Shark battery powered vac that is light and great for small jobs and hard floors like the kitchen or bathrooms.  I have had very good lick with an upright Hoover that is bagless and has all sorts of filters which I like.  I am sure Dysons are good but they seem way over priced.  The larger Sharks might be great also but my only experience is with the small cordless.

49 this morning.  :(

bigskygal - I have a corded Shark vacuum.  It is one which I can empty the cannister very easily.  As Tamagno mentioned, living in the country seems to attract a bit more dust than usual, so vacuuming is necessary frequently.  I like the Shark because it is lighter than other vacuums I've had, plus easier to maneuver.

119 this morning.

BigSkyGal, in recent years I've been using Sharks (one is battery powered and the other corded) and like both pretty well. Each has different strengths so I switch off days. The battery one is very light and especially easy to use. I've looked into Dysons some, but they're terribly expensive and have fallen off the Consumer Reports recommended list for reliability problems. Country life inevitably results in lots of dirt getting tracked in the joint so it's kind of a big deal and I vacuum daily.
