Life in Black and White

Despite promises of another winter wallop, we ended up with barely enough snow to warrant the snowblower. Paul does find almost any reason to use some power tool - whether it's the snow blower, nuclear-powered leaf blower, lawn mover and heaven forbid (and Henry's favorite tool) the dreaded chain saw. So he did power up the snowblower and proceeded to move some heavy wet stuff for us and for our grateful neighbors.

It's a normal January day here in Michigan. Not much sun filters through the clouds and everything looks like shades of gray. We took Samson out to play frisbee - his favorite thing to do in the snow - and he chased his flat disks until he could barely move. When he plopped down in the snow, it was time to come in.

We are watching the first ever NHL game played outdoors. When we were involved in hockey as kids, having hockey practices outdoors were very, very cold. Add snow, and it's difficult to skate. Should be a very interesting game!

The rest of the day will be relaxing. For me, it's enjoying the last day of my vacation before heading back to work. Happy 2008!
