My new "tattoo"

Or... the aftermath of what happens when you walk into a door...

So here I was, trying to use Tawny as a pillow, and she decided to use me as a pillow instead. Very funny!

In other news, the manufacturer of our floors has decided to replace our floors free of charge, as a good will gesture, because their authorized dealer did an extremely lousy job of installing the floors. There may be some costs involved that we will have to be responsible for, will have to see.

Pano from mini-island. See if you can find Freda in this picture.

The products of combustion from propane are water vapour and carbon dioxide. Here you can see the warm moist exhaust from the furnace is rising and condensing on the soffits where it makes a nice frosty decoration.

On Sunday we walked around the lake throwing the kong for Tawny. She loves that but when she gets tired out, she just sits down and waits for us to throw the kong to her, and then she catches it and brings it back to us.

Here is Tawny in one of her rare moments of introspection, pondering the snow on her nose and how it got there.

Did I mention we have a lot of snow?

Photo taken January 4, 2008.

This is a patio table - the snow reaches to the the table top, and you can see it is piled that high again on top of the table!

Path marker lights

This is a photo of some path marker lights we just put up. They are colour-changing LED lights, as you can see there are different colours. They have a clear snowflake like plastic bit on the top that spreads the light around so it glows nicely.
