I got home late today so there were no outside pictures. Nobody went outside.
Instead, for some adventure I started up the Roomba robot I got a while back. It is pretty spooky listening to it bump around upstairs, especially when it climbs up over a bath scale or lamp base and thunks down.
The cats don’t seem to mind its noise from downstairs – not like the big sweeper. It seems to avoid getting trapped in corners and usually it turns about at the top of the stairs. A few times it got ‘stuck’ at the top and turned itself off.
Its dirt bag is pretty small but I figure that if it gets run regularly it will catch up to the stuff left under the bed and such.
This morning I ran it when Calla was sitting on the bed and she was pretty interested in it when it ran under the bed and back out. Eventually she gave it some space and wandered off to let it run around in peace.
My house is something of a horror show with lots of odd things on the floor and corners to run around and narrow halls and lanes. Still today I let it run long enough for it to return itself to the charger to juice it up. That’s a neat feature. Eventually I may get enough things put away that it can do the whole upstairs. It also does a decent job on the landings on the stairs.
