In case you're wondering

I forgot to upload photos of our new floor. It was conveniently installed while we were in California. We still have only gotten the tv, sofa, and loveseat back into the living room. Everything else (except most of my yarn, which I need to go through to find contest prizes) is in our guest room; there's no room in there for any guest! We've got to take care of that so that Tom's daughter can stay there when she comes up.

It's hickory. Natural light:

I really like it. And Zippy does some really funny turns on it.

Oh - it's beautiful! I bet you're thrilled with it.

Allie has had an extremely hard time getting used to the hardwoods - it's been pretty pathetic, actually, as she falls down a lot. :(

Mike keeps buying more rugs to make little safe walking paths for her.

Poor Allie! Zippy makes some running-in-place turns which are really amusing. It was very hard for my old Pookie to walk on hardwood in my old apartment; she really had a difficult time going up the stairs. Zippy prefers carpeted areas, especially when he's eating. Fortunately he won't eat in the living room any more! He takes a mouthful of food then runs to a rug or the bedroom.

Zippy is so funny when he eats. When he's at my house, I find little piles of dog food in various places around the house. And Cat Lassie is always happy when Zippy is visiting because he likes dog food and only gets it when an actual dog is visiting.

Your floors look great...very pretty.
