A moment to enjoy Tampa

The renovations are at something of a standstill right now.  Planing and sanding the now (mostly) stripped cedar has proven to be another gargantuan undertaking in the process of making over the fireplace surround.  45 minutes a day is about the maximum anyone can tolerate in our makeshift construction shelter.
Our attempt at containing the cedar dust
Now that Ben and I have both returned to working full time, this project can only progress on the weekends. We'll probably have to live with this less-than-soothing view for a while.

It is admittedly frustrating, so let's take a little break from the Bear Home Renovation/Decoration Project and focus on some very enjoyable aspects of our new home. In no particular order:

1. Our walk-in shower features glass and marble tiles, a bench, and six spray nozzles. Four of those nozzles have adjustable flow.
2. Honey has several new and strange places to sleep. Every time she is MIA for a few hours we can count on a good giggle when we finally find her.

3. Emily's school is literally across the street.  We get to walk there and back every day. As far as I am concerned, this is a priceless amenity. I never in a million years imagined we'd get to to do this.

4. Our house back up to a beautiful golf course offering us some beautiful views from the entire back side of the house.

 5. I live with the quirkiest six-year-old in the entire world.

6. Tampa also has this guy.
With all that, really, a little home decor challenge is just not going to bring me down.
