Lily Finds a Ball or the Reason I Haven't Posted Anything New

It's winter here in Michigan. And we've gotten snow. Since getting out of my subdivision seems like an adventure, I decided to complete my kitchen floor. The same kitchen floor I started ripping out over 6 months ago. My goal for the new year it to get it done by the end of January. January 2013, that is.

Progress is slow. Seems the former owners didn't just use mortar to put the durock and tile down, they also used some kind of adhesive that I can't pry off. That means I have to grind the stuff down. Oh yay! Fortunately, a coworker is loaning me their angle grinder. I can't wait to tackle this latest feat.

In the meantime, Lily and I have been walking more. She likes to eat snow as we walk - running ahead to grab a bite from a snow bank. It's almost as if she's eating ice cream she loves it so. Her eyes light up and she takes great delight in snatching a morsel and dashing ahead of me to find her next treat. Does snow taste different from yard to yard?

Here's a couple photos of a ball we found on our travels. More design posts to follow soon.
